Portrait WIP: Salem Saberhagen portrait, final day
Here's a quick time-lapse video of the final day of penciling in Salem's body. I used the blue and pink pencil again to provide shine and form to Salem's fur as it conforms to the angles and curves of his body. So loving his sheen!
I just dropped this artwork off at the print shop and will be picking up some very nice prints to give away at the upcoming POP Cats Show in Austin, on Texas May 4th and 5th. If you're at the show, come by booth #152 and enter to win! There will be chances to win on both Saturday and Sunday. (I will also have a couple of prints on hand for giving away on social media, so keep checking my blog posts!)
If you're just tuning into my progress on Salem for the first time, he's a character from both Sabrina the Teenage Witch (from the 90s) and the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (the new Netflix series). Both are based on a spinoff of the Archie comics. In the comic and the tv series, Salem, who is a warlock cursed to live eternity in the form of a cat, is Sabrina's familiar. To see the earlier Salem WIP videos, go here for part one and here for part two. Also, if you want to be on my mailing list and be notified of other giveaways, fill out the form at the bottom of this page and check the box that says you want to join the mailing list. In the meantime, you can view the gallery of portrait videos I've done for real life cats for people like you!
