Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 3
18 x 24 Gouache paints with coloured pencil on watercolour paper - minor PhotoShopping was done to the black boarder and the red shapes to make web/print ready because the scanner picked up too much of the brush strokes.
I fell behind on this series - my original plan was to do one every year after I started by doing Season 1 during it's 20th Anniversary, and thus do a painting for each season on it's own 20th Anniversary. But life and other projects got in the way, and now I'm not sure where this is falling, and from here on out, I also have Angel to add to the mix. But I have devised a new art schedule, and who knows - maybe I'll catch up and maybe even lap myself. We'll see I guess. Anyway, as for the painting itself...
I feel pretty good about how it turned out over all. It's not prefect, and the smaller a character is, the harder I find it to capture their likeness - especially females. But this season introduced my favorite character of the series - Faith... speaking of likeness getting lost. But I digress. With Faith being kind of the dark reflection of Buffy (in this season anyway), combined with so many of the other characters also having a sort of dark version of themselves - that's sort of ended up being the "theme" of this illustration.
