Good things (have) come to an end

Several months ago, the Painting Crusade team announced that the 2017 edition would be the last one. Attendees were wondering if it was "for real". Somehow, the staff members were also hoping that something would make them change their mind. Maybe the PC wouldn't die, or maybe another event would be taken over by the members who were still willing to put up something.

Drawing on my deck! (update: 26/09/2017)

Boom! Still unfinished, but glad I could take a big step forward at once with this big piece that the helmet represents. Still have to put a second coat on it, and probably touch up the edges here and there, but it's still a big achievement.

Drawing on my deck! (update: 24/09/2017)

Just granted me some time to work on it. Been a while! I was a bit rusty with the strokes, but I'm happy I could manage to work on the whole shirt checkers at once, for a more homogeneous result. Still gotta add some shadows and add a second layer do the black squares, but the hardest part of it is done. After that, still a big challenge to come: the helmet!

Drawing on my deck! (update: 14/09/2017)

Back to the great slowness... but still moving! The king part is more or less done. I might add some cross-hatching details on the white shoulder pads. Or not. I'll see. A big advantage of working over a substantial coat of gesso is that I can scratch errors with a sharp knife blade.

There won't be any update about this for a while, as I won't be able to work on it. Dammit. It's far from being finished anyway...
