Once I started blocking in Piggy, I couldn't stop. There's something about the white on white costume that I really like. Instead of being easy with one color, it's a complex exercise of warms and cools. The iPhone camera doesn't show it very well, but it looks interesting to me. Still lots of work to do.
Eyes. Kermit and Beaker needed eyes. The cockpit also needed quite a bit more detail to make it look active. I knew there would be no way, and no reason, for me to recreate every panel from the film set, but it still needed the little details.
In the final image, I made sure the Swine Trek was in space, all the random space was filled, and that the Empire would fall to this plucky crew.
So, that's it. Finished in two days, oil on canvas, 16" x 20". BUT, if you love the picture and want it for your very own, I have excellent news!
