Thanks guys! The encouragement always makes it a little easier to carry on. Sorry for the absence lately. Lots of exciting things happening, but it hasn't left much time for my own work. Went to IlluXCon, which was amazing. The week after I participated in a group show where I managed to sell off a piece. And now I'm wrapping up the semester with some final projects.
Took some time off to do a little speedpaint. I've been aching for a while now to show more distance in my paintings, which is what I tried with this one.
Wrapping up my first semester here at VCU, and looking forward to a nice break. I'm hoping to be able to produce a few portfolio pieces during my break, so I cranked out some thumbnails today. Been a while since I did any of these, so it felt great to get back into it. I actually really like a couple of these, and will probably work them up some more.
This is a current WIP I'm trying to finish. I don't have nearly enough "finished" enviro concepts in my portfolio, so I'm trying to finish some of them, rather than stopping at speedpaint-status. Still lots to do, but it'll get there.
Hey, great sketchbook! I'm seeing some great improvement in here... enviros are starting to look quite nice, and your figure work is coming along nicely as well. Keep it up, I think you have something here!
Niice stuff man. I definately llike your traditional stuff more than your digital, especially with those landscape paintings. Things like that should really help out your digital stuff. That last picture looks good, though I'd say the space between the bottom of her nose and her eyes is too big. Keep it up bro.
sketchibo: Thanks. The paper was warping a little bit, but not enough that it stopped me. These were all done in one of the A4 moleskine sketchbooks. The paper's a little thinner at the larger sizes, but it still did the trick. It also helps to hold back on the water if you're scared of warping, or so I found.
Pyroclasm00: Thanks, man. I always find it interesting that people like my traditional work more. I must confess that most of the time I prefer the tactile nature of paint, but the speed of digital always entices me.
Quasi-almost: Thanks. I love doing landscapes, so maybe that shows.
