I intend to have a finished piece by weeks end. We learned how to properly mount drawings to masonite this evening and am planning to mount this one and finish it that way. A little bit surreal at times. At one point today I was working, rocking out with Wolfmother in my headphones, and I noticed Boris Vallejo had been looking over my shoulder.
The faculty is incredible, and great at teaching as well as masters in their respective fields.
My rough sketch, 18x24":
More to say tomorrow.
