So, I was going to spend the afternoon sketching and listening to some music... But nooo.... I-tunes had a major malfunction and chucked out my music library... twice! A malfunction which others have also suffered according to various forums... but no one has a definitive fix for, which means that it could happen again next time I open the darn programme. So instead of drawing all of my afternoon and evening was spent copying files, reinstalling, backing-up and recreating what was. There was a lot of waiting... I'm not very good at waiting... as illustrated by this little wip which I worked on for a few hours in frustration over having my afternoon and evening ruined.
Precious gazed across the small
dusty runway and the parked airplanes lining it, shimmering in the heat of the
midday sun. He put on an appropriately sultry looking pout and considered
donning his sunglasses to add to the effect, then sauntered along glancing
casually at the planes with a vaguely interested expression on his face.
Eventually he reached the final aircraft and turned around. With his brows
furrowing ever deeper he wondered how on earth he had managed to misplace an
entire airplane… again. He had checked every one of them none of them was his,
it simply wasn’t there. He looked back at the glorified barn functioning as
both hangar and airfield control tower. His eyes darted across the massive
painted on sign on the side of the building announcing that this was ‘Billy Ray’s
Private Airfield’. Precious sighed silently and made his way to the gate
providing the exit off the runway. It was the wrong airfield.
The second outing of Precious Stones done. Special thanks to Tom Petty for having awesome hair and Peter Weller for having big, poofy lips... one of my favourite features of Robocop:-) Once again painted in Photoshop from a hand drawn sketch. Enjoy:-)
