    My daughter has requested a picture of Davy Jones from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I've started by mapping out in Sepia. I've adjusted my gun per Airbrush Dreams and so far the CI is behaving better. I bought 3 sheets of Dru Blairs synthetic paper. After finishing this piece I'm going to paint a project on some other synthetic paper I've recently found and see if there is any difference.

    11"x14" Blair Synthetic paper
    Micron SB

    ambitious project, Davy Jones is such a creepy, intricate character. Off to a good start!

    Thanks Dave.
    Yes he is creepy! My youngest daughter has a picture of a black cat hanging on her wall that I painted. This picture hanging on the wall might cause issues when first waking up in the morning.

    Thanks guys.
    Added part of his hat and a foggy tree. Got tired of mapping his tentacles?

    Honestly that's difficult for me as well. Transferring the reference is the first step. I need to be more patient on this step because it makes the rest so much easier but I always rush through that step cause I'm dying to sling some paint.

    After the image has been transferred I try to map out the image with a color that's predominant in the pic. Then I'll start adding other colors. But again I don't carry this all the way through cause I'm a spaz and usually jump all over. :eek::eek:
    There are a lot more focused, regimented people who can give much better advice on this. I'm a loose cannon when painting. :laugh:

    Little bit more. Lots of time consuming work in the hat.

    So you'll have to start with a 'mapping' on paper and a reference of the outcome you want otherwise you'll wind up painting what you think you know rather than what you actually see !

    Thank you. Will do :thumbsup:. I really like my work schedule of 4 days cause 3 day weekends are sweet but those 4 days are long and usually don't allow for any airbrushing :(
    Hopefully some updates Friday.

    I love ALL of the pirates movies. This character is a challenge to paint too. Looks great already!

    I think I've only seen the first one in this series. I guess I'll have to get caught up.
