I love seeing things like this. Please, people, post more. Don't be shy.

Here's a piece of mine that I hate to have abandoned. I was, however, illustrating a character that has had major impact on me - Dorian Gray. I don't know but maybe some of you remember my Ladies of London piece. I've not had the opportunity to work on any of the other characters for that RPG campaign, but Dorian (or a version of him, he has another name he goes by) is one of the characters involved in the storyline (a much truer Dorian Gray than what that stupid movie The League tried to show him as, grrr).

It's just that the character is so deeply ingrained in me that I can't seem to be able to paint him. Whiiine. I've started on a picture of him, what, five or six times now for this storyline and I just can't seem to pull it off. I suppose I'll get there eventually - my latest idea is to put him into a high collared pearl grey suit with baby blue details, I'll see if I'll get around to it... rather than the drab brown thing I had dressed him in here. It was supposed to have lace and stuff but I started genuinely hating the face long before I got down to the details.



So this one's another bee in my cellar, ha ha.

Come on, Rob! You must post at least one! I want to see.

Ah so Dorian Gray is in the attic, and the BEE is in the basement.

Here's an odd mutant thing I abandoned not too long ago. In general I'd say I have around 20 abandoned things for every single one that gets completed and if I don't finish something while still being in "the zone", it most likely ends up a morgue file... just the way things work here.

I think it's easier to do required work than self appointed work...

I looked around in my WIP folder and i found a little something which was abandoned


I was not satisfied the way this went, because it just looked like a space picture.. which wasnt what I wanted to do.. erm

However, I finished my pic later [link] When I finally start paint something, which is not often, I feel that I must finish it.

The "Favorite characters are the hardest to draw/paint" rule strikes again, I guess? Heh.

I don't really have 'abandoned' works, since my HDD crashed a while ago and all my works went 'boom'. Ironically, everything BUT my drawings was saved. Though it's kind of good, since I didn't like those works too much, but at the same time I didn't have the heart to erase them.

I might dig around and find something, though Hehe.

Wow, some of this stuff is better than my finished work. I think I'm going to go cry now.

I'll dig around later and see if I can find some of my abandoned stuff, although I went on a hard drive cleaning spree a couple weeks ago and most of it got deleted. I'm sure there will be plenty in the future, though.. I think I end up trashing more concepts than I actually finish.
