“In The Warmth Of The Great Northern” …The creation of a NEW PRINT!

 

“In the Warmth of the Great Northern”

Here it is!  The finished painting that shall become available as a print this Wednesday to celebrate the long awaited return of the classic television program from the age of the 90’s. This show was a huge inspiration on everything that I have ever created whether it be comics, video games, or paintings.   Really, when i think about character design, i think about ways to make them more special to whatever world it might be.  There is a magic to the characters in this show that we don’t see too often, you guys.  I am sure you all agree.

This print will be a timed release, meaning everyone will have 2 full weeks to purchase it, and once that timeframe is over, they will never be sold again. The signed and numbered edition size will be determined by the amount sold during the release. Starting Wednesday May 10th @ 10am EST the print will stay available all the way to Wednesday May 24th @ 10am EST. TWO FULL WEEKS! Gosh, i am excited for you guys.  The print will be 13 x 20 inches at $60 each in TheScottCShop.com

 

Thank you for following along with the process of creating this thing!  Here is a collection of the process videos and images, so you can follow along at your leisure.  Then go buy a print of it for your wall at home!  And prepare to watch the return of the show in a couple weeks.  We shall see who from this painting makes the cut for the new season.

THE PROCESS:

I started by sketching all the characters over and over.  remember that?  likeness can be a finicky little bugger.

 

Once all the sketches are scanned into photoshop, i started to lay the thing out.  In this case i decided to put them all in The Great Northern, so they can get cozy by the fire together.


Once it wasas all laid out, i printed the piece out on pieces of paper and taped them together to trace them onto the watercolor paper.

 

Then I had to choose the colors.  Lot’s of wood in this hotel scene.

Laid in the color washes.  You can see where the man in red was to perch.

WOOD BEAMS!  Look at those wooden beams.

That rug was sure complicated to figure out. I was listening to Serial as i painted that rug.  i remember because i was getting so stressed out.

And not the painting of the people!  I love painting coats.

 

 

Punching up the values means i repaint everything again!  man.  I should get it right the first time.

 

I used colored pencils for the details like on this little sweater here.  There are lots of oversize 90’s sweaters, in this show you will notice.

 

And here is the finished piece!

There are things in the forest!  Have you seen them?  I’ll bet you are a huge fan if you have.  I for one am a huge fan of these things that are often in the forest.  They are also in a nostalgic little suburban town roaming around riding bikes and freaking out on telephones.  This print will look wonderful over your loved one’s couch or vintage record player or 8-track player.

2. The Vests print (8×10 edition of 150) $25

Do your loved ones like VESTS?  Let’s take a moment to revel in the presence of VESTS.  These are the most famous of all VESTS!  Some you may recognize and some you may not.  It’s ok if you don’t recognize all of them, just ask a friend’s help with it.  But regardless, these wonderful VESTS should most definitely live on your loved one’s wall perhaps near or inside of the closet itself.  The foyer might also be a good spot for it, near the hanging coats.

TheVests

3. The After Party print (8×10 edition of 100) $25

10. GREAT SHOWDOWNS THE REVENGE (the book) – $15

If you are into movies, I feel like you should challenge yourself with this book.  I’ll bet you know many of these films because I have great faith in your movie knowledge.  This is the third collection in the Great Showdowns series.  “Expect many more epic and slightly less epic clashes.  Expect some barbarians, boxers, aliens in blankets, nerds, karate experts, runway models, wonderful singers, space warriors, lovers, elderly ladies, sushi chefs, camp kids, killer dolls, masterminds, dogs, and telephones!”

11. Zombie In Love 2 +1 – $15

Mortimer and Mildred are back with the sequel book calledZombie in Love 2 +1!  It follows the young couple as they journey into parenthood!  A brand new human baby is left on their doorstep and they must learn to care for him.  They discover quickly that human babies are not into zombie stuff.  Parenthood can be a struggle normally, so you can imagine how tough it is for these two zombie parents to care for a human baby.  I mean, just imagine!  And guess what?  All your other friends are in this book, the zombie dog, the worms, even a new zombie cat.  You’ll probably love it.

ZIL2_1024x1024

 

 12. Hug Machine – $17

Here is a classic pick! HUG MACHINE is the story of a child who is super down with hugging.  He is the self-proclaimed Hug Machine and he is very excited to tell everyone about it. He is very good at hugging and he is not shy to show the world.  He is ready for you to watch how amazing he is at hugging.  He hugs people, but he also hugs things.  Nothing escapes.  Nothing.  He even solves problems with his hugs.  Sometimes he comes up against some real tough hugs.  Hugs that would make others give right the heck up and turn away.  But the Hug Machine never backs down.  And if you, the reader, need a hug?  The Hug Machine will hug you.  Do not worry!  Everyone gets a hug.

HugMachine

And thus concludes this SCOTT C. HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE.  I hope you all have some wonderfully warm holiday times.  You are great.

 

love,  Scott C.
