Boots and Modern Eden: Wayward Fairytales

Boots (working title), 28x18" drawing for board.

I finished this piece today. The concept is roughly based on Puss in Boots. It's not part of the wayward fairy tale show, just inspired.

*Edit 2/3/12:
One of the concepts for this piece revolved around the leopard's spots being an intricate man made design. The drawing looked too busy, so I erased it. And now that I'm looking at the pattern I laid in photoshop, it looks too flat. I think I'll save this idea for another piece and resolve his pattern when I paint. The rest of the piece gained a lot of detail and story as I worked on it, adding substantial weight to the big cat would disrupt the flow.

Coming up this month is a another Contrast art Show at 320 studios in Manhattan. This March, in San Francisco, at Modern Eden will be the group show, Wayward fairytales. 

More soon.
