    Oregano's Fine Dining

    Power was out for about three hours today. This took less than two.

    Oil on paper, from life, smaller than an 8x11.

    See about posting more studies in the near future.

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    Yeah, loving that texture on the onion! Especially where I can see that line of paper-thin skin.

    Ooh, this is nice! The texture's fabulous Shane. I love the underplay of the highlight on the big onion.

    Hey guys,

    Alesoun heh - yeah good stuff (was really looking for a tomato to paint, but ah well, that's what we had.

    turtlepaste two hours because it's so small, really. it's probably about a 7x5 inch painting. But thank you

    emily g aw, shucks, thank you

    Posh thanks man. That's my favorite page of the painting as well. I've been trying to pay closer attention to lighting. It makes sense to me traditionally, but for some reason, translating it over to digital, I lose something

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    thot I'd chuck in a couple of progress shots.

    You can actually see the real onion off to the left in the last shot.

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    Pencil work

    I decided rather than just posting my finished works in my sketchbook, or starting a hundred bajillion threads throughout the FF Section that I'd keep things consolidated some.

    That said, here's some pencil work on 8x11 of varying illustration size that I've been doing recently more as a right brain break and cheap therapy sessions than anything else. The first one is a cross post from my sketchbook.

    I hope you enjoy.

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    wow nice work! you could be the new Brian Froud with this style of awesome character work! At first glance I thought Alice had a samuri sword sheathed though

    Pencils are coming back!

    nice to see you showing some work.

    presentation in the top sketch is sloppy. one can do a sketch and still have it well presented.

    presentation is better in the other work.

    good choice on what to do when the power is out.

    MoonVisionStudio Thanks To be perfectly honestly, I seriously doubt that I could pull off another image like that in two hours again. I think it was just a fluke

    PatriciaS hey Pat, thank you - yeah, pencils are good way to work things out!

    jread oh, jeez - Froud is a god. I'm nowhere *near* his level of mastery! Thanks though!

    Jason Thank you for your feedback - to be honest I hadn't even thought of presentation with the first piece. I went ahead and updated it. I hope it's better!

    All the best,
    ~Shane

    I know I'm butchering the quote but it's something like "fortune favours the prepared man."
    Funny how "luck" always happens more frequently to people who work hard at it.
    Very nice pieces

    Shit dude, Craig said it. And I'm dying to know more about the Haida Orca and the girl there. I know there are sorta brain farts/therapy for you (which I give you props for, it can be really scary to allow yourself to do work like that in the first place) but I feel like your dam could be starting to break here. And that's a good thing

    Any chance I'll catch you at SDCC?

    I really, really dig those drawings - the one of the girl looking at the mouse hole is devine, beautifully observed. Is it illustrating 'Alice in Wonderland'. If it is it is a teriffic tale on it.
    Post more, post more!

    Blahm Thanks I mostly just let the brush do the work with a little bit of touch up detailing. It wasn't *that* hard, really. I'm sure you could do it!

    eminkey2003 Thanks - oops, hrm. Well. Um. Look! Onions! Or something

    emily g
    Thanks emily

    Craig D
    Wasn't that "Fortune favors the stupid...?" No? Seriously though, thanks Craig

    Steph Laberis We've the Samish peoples here in the Sound where I live, and there's a totem pole at the historical museum that I see everyday on my way to work. The symbols and art style have sort of lodged in my psyche, I think, because they sort of randomly crop in stuff every so often. Or butcherings there-of. And I won't be at the SDCC though I'd love to be. I'm going to make it a goal to attend next year. And thanks for the kind words

    SanXavier Thank you!

    Chris Bennett
    Thanks Chris Actually, I'm sorry to say that it wasn't inspired by 'Alice in Wonderland' at all, at least not consciously. Although after you mentioned that, that's the only thing I can see now

    However, this was inspired by 'The Hobbit' - and the character for this week in CHOW

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    that plant-water-bird guy is pretty amazing. Sweet design. I don't seem to be able to get those nice shadings with a pencil, any tips? I use a mechnical 0.5 mm HB.

    thx for explaining your tools of the trade I had almost forgotten about the ancient technique of wiping for the soft shades.

    Oreg, those last 4 pictures don't looks like an onion at all!


    Love the dragon, very appealing detail and shading all around the head/neck. Cool shit.
