Return to Kinny's got a BLOG! Updated Frequently...



And here we are....

Standing before a 6 by 4 foot monolith

Near completion

maybe a dozen more hours...

 

With "Sympathies and Antipathies" only 17 days away

it's time to put the pedal to the metal

and get this done

So time can be spent on Promotion

Cleanup

sealing

wiring

and documenting

and last on the list...

the pricing.

 

Anyways,while i have a small pocket of time

let's spy the battlefield

and see the progress of the troops....

 

Let's intensify the drama

with a little Faure'...shall we?

 



We'll start with a rally from the upper left corner

more shadows and lighting enhanced

gold and silver embellishments added to the soldiers

developing more buildings in the misty background...



a little further towards the middle

some more arched architecture near the top

and clouds all over the place!


 

Finally a Spear is placed into the Solemn Angel's hands

Also the "dump" of fallen transforming angels has remained untouched for the moment...

a shrouded Bruegel Beastie near the top  begins his descent downward

More lighting was also added to the DUOMO style building above the accusing Angel.


 

The fourth Direction/Wind has been placed

and some grand courtyard looms in the background

St. Michael...or the Angel with the scales

has finally gotten some wiings fleshed out...

 



Now we SOAR back to the middle of the Left side of the canvas

(it's like we're reading a book...kinda...with 4 x 6 foot pages

like one of them HUGE Audobon books i desired as a kid)

A Heroic Angel ,finally armed and winged,rushes to the battlefield

propelled by one of the Four Winds...

the Clouds and archictecture in this area are close to finished..

Also note the two fallen fellows bottom right of this picture

We'll see more of them later...


 

Here they are with a third fellow repenting up a storm amidst trumpet blasts...
i also wanted to give y'alls a sense of the space covered in this canvas..

First off,we have top (Heaven) and Bottom (Hell)

1/3 of the Angels have rebelled and there was a War in Heaven

whee Satan and his ilk were cast down into Eternal Fire...

Now besides the flat Top/Bottom spacial division

i wanted to capture Majestic Heavenly Buildings soaring upwards

and capture a misty distance as they receded.

For the Hell areas,i wanted jagged pathways and nonsensical stairways and columns supporting cavern ceilings

i wanted the clouds of hell to muffle into smoke and dissipate



And here's a better view of the Angel with the spear

AND the accusing Angel...

 



As we progress further to the right of the middle of this piece

We see an angel with a half-finished shield...

 



Here he is a little further to the right

with some half-built edifices behind him

and a seraphim floating about in the lower area....

 



Here we can see the scales almost finished

i was thinking of placing a heart and a brain in them

to represent emotion/feeling over reason/logic...

 



Here's a close-up of an area we neglected earlier.. the Angel dragging a chained figure down to Hell.....

 



And here is a detail of the chaos under the accusing Angel

a few damned souls plunge downward....

 



and here is a close-up of the dog-like demon  as he tumbles towards his destination.....



And to the left are the two angels' robes ,as they crisscross around and thru each other...



And here we are at the bottom

with a few more pf the hell-Bound rendered out and the shield rendered....

 



And here is a detail with the background fully displayed

to give you an idea of the labrynthian passageways contained down there...

 



Pictured above are some of the trumpets and columns

showing how the landscape is built upon...

 



And here is a close-up of our avenging Angel as he charges towards a frightened red devil pressed against a rock....

 


And an ULTRA deatail to show you some vestigal pencil lines and the beginnings of the mini-landscape planned for this area...

 



Added a demon clinging to our handsome heroic Angel

and a regretful figure not far behind him...

 


 

Pictured here are some more buildings that give this piece a more VISTA feel....



And some more finished details

for the bottom right area...

Note the cloth slowly encircling the character to the right....



See how worried he is?

Also added a building with some buttresses to the right...


 

a little closer to allow you to see the huge skull winged sculptures above the doorways on this building....



And here is another detail of the finished prison area in the corner...

Well.... that's all i got for now.

the finish line is in view

so check back here next week and i should have it done!

Thanks for visitin!
