details of pieces for a series im working on entitled "All the Queens Men". An idea I've been wanting to do for a while and since i've been busy at my studio job this is a good way to kick me in the ass so i can get this series done. Some of these are going to stay as drawings and some will be paintings. the drawings entitled "the queen" and "the fool" im certain about will be getting some oil. I'm still going to add a few more men for the queen, so again w.i.p. ~ the queen drawing and the clown are being framed this week. I'll post some pics of them in their frames soon ~

this was a very early version of how i wanted to go with the new vision of the headless horseman. more quirky and stylized and less realistic. the idea was this horseman was riding around headless with no legs, used his slaves to push his taxidermy horse on wheels to find new slaves to replace his decapitated heads. obviously it was hard to show all this in a short film so i took it a different direction.

studies for the decapitated heads the horseman could wear

this was the final design we all agreed on, it matched the steampunk style more and gave the appearance that the horseman was a realistic moving locamotive.

Dave and I did alot of back and forth to get the model to its finish. overall, it turned out pretty damn cool- above are some rendered maya images I drew over for dave to model to, a technique very similar to what I do at Bluesky~ to check out a full turn around of the model go to daves blog
