Working on a piece and can't say what it's for at this point (nda).
This is the rough sketch I'll be building off of for the painting. Some of you may recognize this dude. How could you not with his epic facial hair.
I'll be posting more shots of the painting progress as I prep them.

Great job of capturing his emotion here.
Love seeing sketches at these early stages! Amazing techniques Greg.
I believe Ron Jeremy is fatter @Greg ;-)
Looks like Joe Walsh and I concur with @Tom Chalky. It's fantastic to see the process and not just the finished product.
My finished drawing wouldn't be this good. Also, I know who ;)

Since some people like to see the progression here is one of the early blocking stages, I've already moved on to detailing at this point and will share more shots later when I have breathing room to post them.

This is from a later stage in the blocking, probably an hour into it, not sure. At this point I started reducing size of the brushes to carve out more features and shape the contours of the face. More to come....
This was the blocking prior to breaking out Painter's detailing brushes. The blocking phase is very rough but gives me a roadmap to fix issues as I detail. I've got my darks and lights where I want them at this point.
Some illustrators will continue with the blocking, constantly downsizing brushes until the piece is detailed. I guess from my years in working with graphite, I don't like that process. I'll get my composition, shape, shading, lights, and darks where I want it, then start detailing. Sometimes I'll save the hair for last, sometimes I'll tackle that first. There's no right way IMO.
Will post detailing shots over the next few days.
Another update from when I'm detailing.
At this stage, I'm slowly building up the hair with repetitive strokes in multiple colors, smoothing, then rebuilding until it starts to look "natural". Notice the difference in the right side of his face with the hair vs the left side. the left side is just now starting to take shape while the right side is much closer to completion. Obviously, nothing done on the top of the head.
Just realized I hadn't put up another progress shot since mid last week.
As you can see, the hair is pretty much where I want it and I'm moving down his face; detailing. Will be working on the mouth and stache over the next day and will be finishing this off this week to post the final painting.
Finished "Yawn!" last night, slept on it and fixed a few tiny issues this morning. It's now released and a full sized version can be seen on my site here: http://gregnewman.org/journal/2012/oct/23/yawn-and-new-bundle/
I also have other prints for sale!!
