    When I first decided to work with artists in China, it was for one reason alone. Artists in China still hold traditional painting values in high regard.

    Not long ago, when I was in school, I found it hard to learn traditional drawing and painting from my teachers. I would arrive at a new school and find perhaps a couple that could teach and do what they were talking about. The USA (and Europe)had from the 1920's - 1990's shunned traditional art learning as unnecessary. The methods of the traditional masters were ignored. In China, this is just not the case. The same teachings that were popular in France in the 19th century, or Russia in the 1950's Socialist Realist period, are still thriving in China.

    The rich tradition of Chinese painting and refined eastern/western composition and image making theory is a powerful mix. In my search for artists with such knowledge, I found ZhangLu and/or he found us.

    Since then, ZhangLu has been working as a concept artist at MB Shanghai. He is working directly with me for these videos which will go a long way to helping support this community. We are lucky to have ZhangLu with us. His work is of very high skill and his spirit stands out from the crowd. His art is unique and I am happy to have had the chance to work on these videos with him. He is able to capture soul in his work, and saves the humanity of his subjects in the pixels he paints.

    Here are a few more images for you all to enjoy: I am happy to see others appreciating what I too see in ZhangLu. His work is amongst my favorites.

    Thanks ZhangLu!

    Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I really enjoy painting and it is nice to hear that people enjoy the art. I have made lots of paintings this year and make more every day. I will post more soon. For now, here is a wizard painting I made recently. I hope you like it. Thank you.

    Damn Intoduce me to the girl in the 2nd image. Beautiful work man.
    Your Images have such great feeling, yet that style you have is so Non abrassive. I bet you could paint a guy getting his hea dcut off and still keep a softness and beauty to it.
    Love your Demo as well.
    A Thanks to Jason for the Commentary as well.

    Those portraits are probably the most inspiring pieces of work I've seen this year. Sounds silly, but they look so natural.
    To be all 'arty farty' and conceptual, it seems the ink has simply leaked out of the paper to form the shape. LOVE IT!

    Hey totally awesome work!
    I love your portraits, bought both female and male downloads - it's soooo cool to watch hearing Jason's helpfull tips and thoughts!
    Is it possible to get the psd's for the male download too? because the files were only included in the female download.
    Thanks for all the effort!

    Wonderful, but I think the paleness and lightness (sometimes smokiness-ish) in your drawings can be painful at times! I think it it best to stick to light pallates for sunny pieces. Just my personal view. Still, they are quite the displays of your excellent and evident technical abilities!!!
