The art, process, and rebloggings of Michelle Pecoraro: Story and Concept Artist ("President of Ideas" and "King of the Black Forest Cake Forest" too).

Went to ISC’s “Vauedville in the Park” today. It was SO AMAZING.  I need more of “Dr. Pinch and the Pinchtones” in my life.

Independent Shakespeare Company is putting on another year of Vaudeville in the Park - and I encourage any of ya’ll living in and around the Los Angeles area to come out.  The acts last year were all hilarious and super talented, and I’m sure this year will be no different!

BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE!

Inspired by my implanted defibrillator, I decided to make Bioshock Infinite Me part Handyman!  Luckily, Fink and his scientists were able to keep my drawing arm intact, so I can make loads of money off painting majestic portraits of the Founding Fathers.

Easy and Hard Challenge Days 12 and 13: Enclosed Space/Open Space and Love/Hate
It doesn’t get much more enclosed than a confessional.  Ethan, confessing his sins - hating himself for what he’s done, and repenting to earn back the love of God. Bam. Two prompts in one.

Easy and Hard Challenge Day 11: Little Kid/Old Person
Both!
Itty bitty Sid’s favorite book was The Secret Garden, and she used to love planting flowers (pretty much just a metric butt-ton of sunflowers, actually) with Nonna Nevia (Paolo’s mother).

Easy and Hard Challenge Day 10: Industrial/Pastoral
What jumped to my head immediately when thinking of pastoral for this was Sid and Vlad hitching rides and riding the rails all around America - zipping past the farmlands of the Midwest and the South.

Easy and Hard Challenge Day 9: Gruesome/Saccharine

You know, for a person co-creating a project revolving around hitmen, I really don’t draw enough beaten, bloody, mutilated people.  Figured today’s theme was as good and excuse as any to begin remedying that! (Also, since I skipped yesterday’s, I planned a full page composition, which is why I included my thumbnail… As proof of my intentions.)

So here’s drderange's Vlad Leskow and Evelyn Coombs, pre-Reaping Whirlwinds.

Not too happy with how the clean linework is coming along, so I might scrap and start that bit again.

Decided to slap some color on last night’s Trish drawing.

Easy and Hard Challenge Day 7: Dress/Suit
Both suits and dresses are fairly difficult depending on the pose of the wearer, but I decided dress was the slight more difficult one.
Found a great pic of Clara Bow to reference from, and decided to use Trish as the subject. Somehow a cigarette found its way into her hands.  Apparently she was jonesing (Do smokers jones? What is the cool, hip lingo? IDK.) for one after an evening of ballet or something.

Easy and Hard Challenge Day 6: 30/70 Rule

Uuuggggh.  Not done, but I am just getting really angry at this and need to go to bed. About the only thing I like in this is the L’s support structure.

Things Michelle had absolutely zero patience for: Hatching - Cross or otherwise. Never again.
