I made this a little while ago for 5finity’s VOLTRON: United and Drawn art book.  It was a lot of fun.  The only guideline was that the image had to be somehow related to Voltron.  I got my copies in the mail a couple weeks ago and I’ve got to say that they did a very nice job putting the book together.

Another sketch for Art Challuunge.  This one was a lot of fun and I’m pretty proud of that bubble!

My Art Challuunge from last week.  It was a lot of fun but now that I’m looking at it again I’m starting to wonder how much my recent viewing of Tangled snuck its way in.  Hmmmmmmm…

Costumed Figure Studies

Posted 2/3/11 1 comments


The Nevada Museum of Art has a great selection of classes and open studio sessions.  We just finished a four week open studio focusing on the costumed figure.  The models were great and all had a wealth of knowledge regarding the time periods and characters they were dressed as.  I’m trying to get my traditional media legs back so I made an oil sketch each session.  The first one was embarrassing enough to get turned upside-down and reused the second week (WWII German Medic).  Each panel is 16” x 20” and was made in just under 3 hours.http://blog.andrewjohanson.com/images/Costume1.4.jpg

Warhammer Card

Another card from the same Warhammer set that I posted about earlier. Here's the other card. This armor already existed in the Warhammer universe so it was more my job to give the guy a pose and render the armor nicely enough to make it look attractive. I had a lot of fun doing it.

And the sketch.  The green line shows where the card template cuts into the image.
