More Progress

Lots of hard work I've put in on this one so far. Here's to seeing whether she's done by October. (glass clink)

Sea witch progress

Here are my steps, layer after layer of different colors, trying to truly paint indirectly. It's all new to me, what with the glazing and the transparent color. I actually quite like it. Hope you like it too!

What do you do with a painting like maria? (Once a week 5)

Not too happy with the likeness, but the skin tones work just fine. Thanks for posing for me, maria!

Cowboy Mirror

My next cowboy is just now coming together, so I thought I would show you. He is designed as a mirror for the first, obviously...

Sea witch line drawing

She's back. And this time she's 36x48.

One a Week 4, for real

And now for my most cliche concept yet, a gladiator. Why? Because they're effin' cool. And it only takes three hours. And it's just for fun. Stop asking why already. Enjoy.

one a week 4

is coming... just let it dry. Next up will probably be color studies for my frazetta piece. And my next full day off may be spent sending as many e-mails as I can. I bought my Illuxcon ticket and signed up for a portfolio review, so I can feel it coming on. So close...

One A Week 3

This one I'm actually going to go back into and add a head, the coils are not nearly sinister enough... muah haha.

New 8x10

These things really are a blast. I will probably make these two little studies into larger, finished paintings, but I may also just make compositions that freak my fancy in 8x10 as three hour exercises. Weekly? Bi-weekly? We'll start easy: Once a week I will update, Palumbo-style, with a little 8x10 oil study. Here's week two.

Sea witch study

Last night I couldn't sleep, I just had a great image in my head, crying to get out. So today I drew up a little 8x10 and did a color/value study. Roughly 3 hours. Fun stuff. I should do more of these! Holler at me if you think I should make a big 'un. The lights in the distance are a submarine.

Sick day

I am sick today, so I am looking at all kinds of artwork. It's amazing how much streaming information there is on illustration out there. The community is very tight knit and I just want to fit into it. Workin on artwork, very inspired and very interested in submitting to every illustration show out there. Will post soon.

I am finally done moving. I have a much larger studio space now, and a much nicer neighborhood. Yay. Artwork soon.
