First image is a study for an oil painting I really want to do. My professor suggested I try to do some traditional landscapes, and I think it was good advice. It's based loosely on a nearby mountain in Virginia. The second is just another speedpaint I struggled through.
Very strong digital work man, those eviros are epic!!

Been busy with a lot of non-art-related junk lately. On the other hand, I've also been prepping for IlluXCon next week. First convention for me, and also my first professional portfolio review (with Jon Schindehette). I'm pretty pumped to go and meet all of my art heroes. It's gonna be a blast.
So-so little landscape while chatting on the phone:
That's the end of my first sketchbook for class. I'm doing a second for extra credit. I went ahead and picked up one of the A4 moleskines so I'd have a little more room. I really wanted to start to do some painted studies, so using movie still and photos for reference I've been doing some of that. The early b&w ones are gouache, but then I moved to acrylics. It's been a lot of fun to do.
I really dig your enviros, they're fascinating! I never done one myself, but i think i might after looking at your stuffs. Your productivity is to be exampled, especially by me But i noticed one thing though, I learned that you have a tendency to make necks too vertical straight, as shown in your last two portraits in post #10/p4.
