    My Paintings - updates! -

    So much fantastic stuff at CA, I'll be lucky to make it out of this alive!

    I'll start with some traditional stuff (old stuff too), and then some very humble digital quick paints. Also, if you get a chance, check out my demo reel at www.calebmerrick.com I really hope you all like my stuff!

    To this day (painted this about 12-13 yrs. ago), you can still find Jack high up in the mountains of Colorado running an old fashioned general store, and making some of the best steaks this side of the Rockies.

    ---------------------------
    Painted this as a gift for a friend. He allowed me to sail to Europe on a coal ship when I was 19, so it was just a really big 'thank you'.

    ---------------------------
    Painted this while living on a farm in the midwest, I added our barn cat to give it some life. I don't think I was quite 19 yet, as I remember being pretty anxious to get out and see the world.

    ---------------------------
    This was my first major piece, I did this when I was around 15 or 16 years old. I remember the brush I used wore completely down to a nub, the guy that bought the painting requested the brush, so I gave it to him.

    old mural I did way back in the day (not sure what day)..

    ---------------------------
    This oil piece was done when I was about 21. Sad but true story, while living on the farm, we accidentally hit the bird used in this piece with a car. Got two uses out of the pheasant, a painting, and a really nice meal! poor thing.

    ---------------------------
    I struggled with this oil piece greatly and had to get help from my folks at the time, because I'm color blind. I finished this painting when I was around 17-18 yrs. old. The fun part that I remember was plucking a hair from my head and using it to detail the rifle!

    I won't be the first to say that, the lighting in you're images really makes them feel real... Wherever you light in you're images they really look realistic.

    I like the pheasant painting quite a bit. You can really sense that it is connected to a story.

    Nice traditional painting.

    Thank you very much! Yes actually there is a story behind it, The guy that commissioned the piece told a wonderful story about his childhood concerning that old John Deer that belonged to his father! A group called Pheasants Forever was going to do a printing, but they flaked out.

    small update

    I found a bunch of my really old traditional doodles and scanned them. I thought it might be fun to add stuff to them digitally.
    In this little pen and ink (hanging above my bedside table), I just added a little warm color.

    First Mattepainting

    This is the first matte I did when I was in school, I used Maya and Photoshop, I went to render the grass (it's just Maya grass) using mental ray, that wasn't going to happen with our time constraints, so I faked grass and cloud movement in Shake. Obviously it's a little crude, but I thought I'd post it anyhow.
