    I messed around with the layers a little on my wave painting. Lightened the sky, smoothed out the wave a little.

    Dusting Off The Sketchbook

    My final CoW from the Sound Cow and in progress shots from the Implant cover I'm doing for my cousin's book.

    IAF Cover Contest Piece

    I decided to make an entry for the IAFcover art contest. I'm a sucker for roots and cracks aesthetically speaking, so I decided to work around those as a metaphor for creativity.

    mixed media: digital photography/Photoshop painted

    (The building is the Bigelow Chapel at the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which is one of my favourite cemeteries, and one of the oldest garden style cemeteries in the US.)

    More refinements to Implant cover. I've got several shadow references up in the lower left corner--some for colour, some for the shape of the shadows, etc.

    Cover art for my cousin's military thriller novel. It's not completely done, but I need to move it off my plate for now. (If and when his book sells, I can always revisit it.)

    Sharing Knife Fan Art

    Fan art in progress for Lois Bujold's fantasy series, The Sharing Knife. I decided I wanted to do a picture of Dag and Fawn from one of my favourite (and more peaceful) scenes. Dag has just taught Fawn to swim in the lake, and has taken her to this place he used to swim as a kid. So far, I've done a very rough palette study, trying to figure out the main colours I want to use, and started on the sketch of Fawn and Dag in the water. Dag is more treading water, using his upper arms, while his lower body hangs slack. (Also, the water will be dark-greeny-brown, and you won't be able to see much of their bodies below their torso, except for as shadows and highlights.)

    For those who haven't read the book, Dag lost his left hand in a battle twenty years back. (For reference on why there's no left hand. It's not disappearing in the lake or anything like that. Also, I haven't yet decided if I want to draw a loincloth for him, or just give genitalia and let it all hang out, or if I should just let the murky lake water preserve his modesty.)

    looking good, maybe try some more finished studies, really sit down and work it over, i think you'd be surprised how it could help you out, but overall looking really good!

    More progress on Fawn and Dag....

    (I know a handful of folks think I should move up the figures, but I'm really loath--particularly as all the rest of my works are....you know...centered. Dead center. Besides, I think it will matter less when their bodies are covered up more and the background is darkened up a lot.)

    Fawn and Dag In Progress shot

    Off to the left you can see reference shots of forests and standing water and overgrown banks and lily ponds.

    I tend to have one window open at my zoomed in size, and another at the size I assume people will see the final product in.

    Updates: Octopus Sketch and More of Fawn and Dag

    So I've got some more in progress shots with Fawn and Dag, as well as my octopus which was supposed to be my daily sketch but turned into a bit more than a mere sketch. I've included some of the in progress sketches and inks.

    Reference for the octopus is from my photos at the Seattle Aquarium. I took this particular shot during my brother's visit earlier in April. I managed to get some fairly decent photos despite the flash and despite the fact that our camera's lens needs cleaning. Well, decent enough for reference.


    I'll probably revisit this again some time because I want to try my hand at the awesome colourations this octopus had. Isn't he a beaut?


    ...

    As for Fawn and Dag, these shots just show progress on the canoe and lily pad details.

    Foundational Painting

    I thought I would try Bumskee's tutorial from this thread here and this is what I ended up with. I may have to use that technique more.
