Noir Update: Storybeats - The Whole Story...















With Comic-Con over - and confirming my teaching schedule for the Fall - time to get back my Film Noir project. I think after - I've lost count of the number revisions - I may have arrived to the final story....

....Nah. Revisions never end.  NEVER.

Rosie the Riveteer "Pin-Up"...



Always wanted to do a take on this famed war-time poster. Might do another later...

Work-In-Progress Stuff on Tumblr...

Not that I'm abandoning Blogger - but I've had a Tumblr account for a bit and just haven't done much with it. I think it'll be just for work-in-progress stuff and sketches....

Here's the link (which is also at the side bar): http://scotlandbarnes.tumblr.com/

SO - stuff like this - that I should just finish up....like um...now...

Blogger will still get some of this stuff as will the FB page - but more of the "finished" stuff (or as close to finish as I ever get...)

Pin-Up: Bettie Page-ish Hitching a Ride...


Still trying to burn though all my pin-up girl sketches that I've built up over the last few months. I figure if I keep working though them it will help out on the painting - color still isn't my "friend", but getting closer. Top is the current "finish" that I can arrive at, with a work-in-progress below.

Back to Noir: Act One Revisions...

There's nothing quiet like being out of work to give you a chance to get back to old projects. That said - time to head back to my Film Noir project and continue to work on tightening up the story. That often mean one thing - rewriting and re-boarding over and over....





Above is my new beats for revising Act One of my Film Noir project. 















The above is the beats from where I left off in December. At that time I had to stop working on the project as I was on full time work on "Pettington Park". One hopes to be back on at a studio again soon or back to teaching - but in this economy - who knows? Maybe at least I'll finally get this story to a nice solid polished finish.

ISO BABY!


Not the best pieces in the world (at least compared to what I know now) - but they did get me a job on a game called "Pettington Park" - which was released on Google + for Zynga. I'll be posting more isometric (ISO!) work soon - once the game has been out for a bit longer.
