Pecos Bill!

So I have been pretty much streaming a lot of Disney + lately. As of this writing we are still being "socially distant" and I have not had as much work to do lately and to stay out of my wife and son's way as they are working and going to school respectively in our small house, I have been hanging out on our back patio. It's actually a great place. Fresh air, a ceiling fan, by the pool and we actually have a TV out there now. Sounds ritzy but it's not, but it is nice and we are blessed to have such things. So since I was using Disney cartoons as background noise, I was inspired to quite a bit of Disney characters while doodling. Some of them became much more than doodles. So when Pecos Bill came up while watching "Melody Time", I was reminded that when I was very young, my brother and I had one of those read along records of this and that I played it quite a bit even before I learned how to read! I loved it! Plus I was experimenting with a new drawing app on my iPad and wound up drawing Pecos Bill and his horse Widowmaker. The drawing came out well enough I thought. 

Enjoy!







Also, here are the sketch and the b/w version.

The Rocketeer!

The Rocketeer!! Obviously one of my faves!! I went for a retro poster look with this one and instead of using the actors of the film version, used the same inspirations that Dave Stevens used with himself as Cliff Secord. Very pleased how this came out. Share it if you like it.
Enjoy!



Stuff from the ol' website. Part 7

Back to some old stuff today. I really want to finish this off as soon as possible now. Bear with me. Today I have four pretty random pics. The first one was done a LONG time ago when the company I was working for was developing a Casper game. I was pretty involved and did a LOT of finishing and inking the art. I was proud of the work and was actually enjoying myself for the first time at that job. I should have known better. The job got cancelled and everything went into the trash. I don't remember who did the original sketch of the house but I finished, hand inked and digitally painted it. Then I threw Casper in for fun after it was all over.




This next one was done for a children's magazine. They only print certain pages in color but wanted a double page spread about smoking and ......., I guess running. I don't remember. But I do remember that the fade from black and white to color was there! I did this from start to finish in Photoshop. No paper.




These next two were just…

Sherlock Revisited

I don't want to make it a habit of going back and doing new versions of my inventory but my love of the show Sherlock and the overwhelming requests I get at shows led me to finally sit and think about how to approach this for the second time. And not just with a different style of painting. Although, I was just struck with the thought of literally just repainting the same picture in two styles! That suddenly seems like a fun project to at least make an attempt at. But now, which one?? I'll give that more time for thought later when I actually have free time to think about it! I can't believe how much time has passed since I last blogged! Seems that more and more time is being taken by the immediacy of my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/JonPintoPicturePage) rather than here. Is that the nature of the internet? Has the tide shifted so? Don't worry. I'm not about to abandon my blog just yet. I still find it cathartic to sit and type sometimes and even ramble i…
