HOBBIT SKETCH CARD & NEW INTERVIEW

Saturday. June 22nd, 2013

Hi everyone ... Long time, no see.

I've been getting use to the new job & new schedule ... and slowly things a becoming manageable again.

I recently finished this Thorin Oakenshield sketch card I was working on a while back.

Both the painted card - Link and pencil study - Link are currently for sale on eBay, have a look if your interested..





If your interested in pre-ordering the upcoming print, here’s a link - Thorin Oaken shield $7.99
(The prints will be ready to ship at the end of June)

I've defiantly been missing doing my podcast, but recently I was interviewed on my good friend Peter Palmiotti’s show ‘The Independent Road



It was a lot of fun and ended up being a two part’er, so I’ll post next weeks show when its up. Give it a listen, and hopefully it will tide over the fans of my show, until I get my act together again.

See you guys next time.
- Jeff

Sir, your skills are still awesome and I'm amazed by them as always. Just by curiosity, but will you ever make a Micheal Jackson sketch card?

Olav Marahrens said...

Jeff,
great work as always!
Cheers
Olav

Excellent thanks Jeff, about time we heard from you - about you!! Looking forward to listening. I've archived the podcast so I can listen to it when the paintbrushes are out next… All the best.. M

As always lovely work mate!

~Challenger2008 said...

I was wondering how you've been. I miss seeing your frequent posts, but am also happy that you're working steady.

Great. as usual!

~PeterPalmiotti said...

Incredible work as always Jeff, and that's for the plug!

*Weidel said...

Raymo said...

That's very well painted and I'm pretty sure that's Jesus.

~Challenger2008 ... Thanks man, been trying to get back in the groove!

~PeterPalmiotti ... Thanks Peter!

*Weidel ... I do whittle them down to a fine point! Thanks for the comment!

Raymo ... Thanks for the comment. I can see the Jesus resemblance, or at least a resemblance to what most peoples perception of what Jesus looked like.

pastel65 ... Thanks Pam!

~KazumaAkimitsu ... Thank you! I'm not sure, if I did paint Micheal Jackson, it would probably be because it was a request for a job, or a commission. Not cause I don't like him or anything like that, its just that I'm more inspired by the movie stuff than the music side of things.

I love the Thorin. :)

Jeff Cooke said...

Great stuff!

~micahchampion said...

Great look. Lots a visual motion in a still portrait, especially the eyes.

~KazumaAkimitsu said...

I see.

chammi kaiser said...

Great portrait, Jeff. Like the limited palette. Makes it very powerful.

AprilJoy said...

Jeff, your portrait style is inspiring. This is gorgeous. I love the look in his eye (& it sure didn't make me think of Jesus).

Raymo said...

Oh huh

ColinS said...

Magnificent portrait work.

johnjohn said...

Nicely done, the cross hatching gives the dimensions a real punch.

Max Romaine said...

Fantastic work, sir. The likeness is quite accurate and I love the tones you used. The umber-ish browns and slight streaks of dull green in his hair and beard really bring out the ruddy presence of the dwarf king. Very nice job.

Jeff Lafferty said...

Thanks Max!

Excellent technique! I have one tiny gripe - his left eye is higher than his right eye and it throws the whole thing off for me. I know it's an easy fix in photoshop, but if you're anything like me you hate doing that. Really great work - I hate to even mention the one error.

Jeff Lafferty said...

Katie Lawter ... Thanks Katie

Obat ... Thanks for stopping by

hadesillustrations ... Thanks Hades, I appreciate the critique.

Zaingerr ... They are colored pencils. The brand I use is Prisma Color and also Col-Erase. I'm drawing over thin acrylic paint washes applied with an airbrush.

Thanks for the comment.
