I've dreamt of seeing this commercial again for years. Thanks Youtube for making sure my childhood memories are preserved for eternity (At least until you get shut down...) As a kid, I loved those Jack Kirby-esque characters and how could you deny the beauty of a city wall made up of giant teeth! I'm truly amazed how well the actual commercial holds up to how I remembered it. I can't say the same for Voltron or the Superfriends...anyways, gotta go, I've got a hankering for a round of some vigorous teeth brushing!

This pair was the last two from this series. I plan on continuing this series, but lately life (or laziness) has been getting in the way. When I sketched in the Dog painting, the air tube originally filled the entire composition, twisting and curving around ornately.
As I started painting the piece, I realized that I had no focus and simplifiedI it so the dog would retain the focus. As for the Astronaut in the cockpit, I just wanted to do a piece that could tell whatever story that popped in the viewer's head. Is he crashing...taking off...does he really need to pee?

Round 3. Michele veers away from the space theme and goes for something very...much her own thing. She knocks out a interesting piece, but unfortunately, she got real busy and this is where her "space" exercise ends (for now at least) No growth for me. Still doing my typical floaty something something thing...but at least I'm painting again...

Round 2. We started getting in the groove of things. Michele did the Rocket painting and I did the spacemen. The painting was done in two sessions, the first laying in the majority down and the second popping the contrasts and bring up the values I didn't (or couldn't) think of in the first round.
