I painted pictures of Moochie. Here is one of them (the other has been moved to IF: Instinct).
gouache and graphite on canvas board
The canvas board painting was an experiment, actually. I'd never painted on canvas board before, so I wasn't entirely sure how it would turn out. I think canvas board is mostly for thick paints, like oils and acrylics, but it took gouache and graphite like a champ. Canvas board is not ideal for thin paints, though, because the pattern of the canvas fabric shows through. In this case, however, I think it helps emphasize the cartoon-like quality of Moochie in the painting. It's nice when stuff works out.
The other painting was painted on my favorite type of paper: cold pressed watercolor board. It's a joy to paint on. Even the subject of the painting appears happy to have been painted on cold pressed watercolor board. Observe how pleased he looks: His calm countenance; the secretive smile. He's like the Mona Lisa, for Pete's sake!
This is my somewhat flawed retelling of King Arthur's conception, inspired by the movie Excaliber. Naturally, the comic contains sex. So if you are uptight about that sort of thing, you should probably leave now. Enjoy the show.
