Studies for the other two carolers, I didn't have as many poses to choose from for these guys, but these two will work fine. Will probably still do a few more sketches before paint, just to make sure I nail down the likenesses a bit better.
And here is the working comp that I okayed with the principal this afternoon. Carolers front and center, the wreath will frame behind them with a pic of the high school inside it, and the Leyendecker-borrowed scroll with an old english-esque CRHS will close off the bottom.
I'll project everything to canvas on Monday and then start laying paint on Tuesday. I'll take a bunch of pictures along the way. And, deadline - Thanksgiving.
Also, this Friday's kicker - I made a video! Definitely not saving the world with this, but I had to do some video work for my grad class, and it was an interesting learning experience. I'm definitely going to try and hone my skills with this and get some more up in the future. Enjoy, and don't be to harsh.
