Check Mate Update
Here is an update to Check Mate!
In the first part of the image... to the left.. I wanted to lay a base color to start blocking it in.
Then I focussed on the King. I didn't block it in solid at first as I was trying to check its symmetry
I wasn't completely satisfied so in blocking it in I reworked its general shape. Once I had it where I was satisfied with the overall shape I made it a solid black. Well, actually not a true black but you get the picture.
Then I decided to block in the first layer of the background. I like where its going and look forward to when it is a bit drier so I can better blend it to the chess board.
Once this stage is near dry or sort of a tacky feel to it then I will focuss in on a finer detail and blending.
Not to far from the stage where it will begin to pop as I call it, and I am so looking forward to that stage.
I hope you are enjoying the step by step progresses of my work. I hope to in the near future do some videos for You tube to be placed on here so you can see the progress in action.
More to come!
