Black Kat RaceQueen art process Part 7 by Artraccoon
Black Kat RaceQueen art process Part 7
Well, the digital colors came together rather rapidly, so the seventh installment of this work process is ready to be shown and shared. I wanted this craft to have a fair amount of gloss, and to look very clean, the opposite of my utilitarian and military craft. I also wanted lots of chrome. The griffin logo is for a sponsor, the Noble Elemental Energy Products company. That was drawn separately then warped to fit the shape of the craft's nose. I really think this came out well. I'm considering adding a few more sponsors, but don't want it to get too cluttered...we'll see. Next, the two other characters and mid-ground subjects.     Visit my Facebook page for the latest on this series...but I will still get around to posting them here as…

Black Kat RaceQueen art process Part 6
The inks are now done in this sixth installment of the work process that I'm showing and sharing. I went from hard pencils to inks. As usual, I use several different ink pens to do the job ranging in scale from 0.4mm to 0.6mm, and from various makes, most notably Alvin Pensticks, Faber Castel PITT pen, & Sakura's Micron and Pigma Sensei. Digital clean up was done in Photoshop. Onwards to the next phase, digital colors.

Black Kat RaceQueen art process Part 5
On this, the fifth part of my work process showing and sharing, is the start of the next layer in this image. At this point, I've gotten the hard pencils worked up on the nose of the Space Racer craft that the Race Queen will be sitting on. Lots of mechanical details, and the only marking that will be drawn directly on the image. All the other markings will be doing separately and put on as digital decals. Being a racing craft it's going to sport quite a few logos from the team's sponsors. Also, there will be some other characters in the image, one whose eyestalks can be seen peeking over an engine nacelle. Next phase, final details & inking!!   Be sure to visit my Facebook page to get the latest updates and see other things going on with the Artraccoon's art.…
Noble Energy Corp logo by Artraccoon
Noble Energy Corp logo

This is the logo for the fictional and future corporation "Noble Elemental Energy Products". This megacorp produces and markets fuels used in various kinds of craft, including starships. So no matter if you need diesel fuel, enhanced hydrogen slush, helium 3, or transuranic elements, Noble has what you need!   This company's logo is a common sight in the Interstellar Axis.

Now to see who figures out what real world logo I'm emulating...

Black Kat RaceQueen art process Part 4 by Artraccoon
Black Kat RaceQueen art process Part 4
 Here is the fourth part of my showing and sharing of a work in progress. Once again today was a work day, and after I relaxed, I started the final coloring on the Race Queen. A nice shiny outfit, white vinyl Go-Go boots, and bright red hair( I like red-heads, ok). The next phase will be nose of the craft she's sitting on, then the middle ground, and then a rather "painterly" background. I've done my "Google Maps Recon" of my chosen vantage point at Palm Springs International Airport, so the background will be fairly accurate. This pretty much finishes the work to done on the girl, leaving any remaining tweeks to be done in the final composition.     The next part will be posted soon at my Facebook page first, so pay me a visit...…

 Howdy!   On my "Artraccoon's Studio Page" on Facebook, I'm doing a series where I'm sharing a work in progress.  It's a loose step-by-step showing how I work on a piece of artwork. In this case a futuristic race queen posed on the nose of a racing aerospace craft parked at a show and race event. You all will see it from it's start as a BiC pen sketch, to inks, to digital colors, background development , to final I do it.  I'll try to do something daily on it, as time and work permit.  It's a glimpse into my process if you all are interested, and I hope you enjoy it.  Sexy redhead alert.   

You can get there from here...…

Oh right now putting up a new journal entry here on DA and some pics of my silly pet wolf Togo in my Scraps section.  After this it's back to work on a piece in progress and a quick bit of research via Google Maps of the Palm Springs airport.  Then to bed.
