Mark Cela Graphics Blog
This is the latest in my Samurai series of paintings. I've been developing characters for a fantasy story set in feudal Japan that may turn into a future graphic novel.
This started off as a small sketch I did while taking a break from grading portfolios.
I wanted to do something that reminded me of the work I admired. This is my attempt at a Baroque-style painting, inspired by the works of Caravaggio.
It's the end of the term and I'm a bit burned out. Over the next few weeks I'm going to absolutely relish the time off, and I'm going to draw until I'm sick of it, then I'm going to draw more.
This is an illustration that I completed between graduate studies.
I found this yesterday and thought I'd post it. This is the original sketch I did for the Samurai in the Yurei Forest piece.
