    Draw more man. I wanna see more of your stuff. Your ideas are awesome. Just keep on drawing. And the daily sketch group is a good inspiration to draw from.

    I'm out to conquer the world equipped with a pencil, digital paint and a Sketchbook
    and when I do achieve that goal...I'll conquer the moon too

    and now, for the work in progress thang...
    (you can also find it over at my blog

    Step #1:
    Concept in PainterX then gridded out to canvas.
    (Yeah, I know I could project the image up there, etc. but I'm poor at the moment, so a projector will have to wait)

    then, onto the oils in the background...
    started out ok, then wound up looking like a messed up bob ross painting...


    next step: tearing down the background into something much simpler...
    (oh, and I just got a MUCH better camera, so hopefully you'll get to see it without that horrendous glare... )

    I really like the grim atmosphere you've got going on in these. The knife guy in particular is a great concept.

    spoonfruit: Thanks alot! I'll be posting more this evening, after a long painting session.

    blashyrkh: Thank you very much! He came about due to excessive amounts of history reading and listening to nordic death metal. These things happen.

    Haha, I'm also pretty inspired by death metal, though not so much the Nordic variety anymore (more into tech death and the brutal stuff). The red wolverine image looks like a bloodbath- awesome.

    You have an unusual painting method. I'm curious to see how this will end up looking.

    Tonight's effort

    Got some painting time tonight...
    all feedback is welcome!

    Simplified the background, then chunkified the painting a bit...

    Hope it'll dry before tomorrow evening, then I can get some more done...

    Izer: Glad that you picked up on that... It's an image pulled from a dream I had of a small boy, a traveler. I'm having fun with the painting, but it's at the crazy "oh, crap.. am I going to screw it up ?!?!" part... which is actually quite exhilirating..

    You're very prolific lately! Some good ideas in the thumbs there- the last one in the second row is very dynamic and interesting.

    Don't be afraid you'll screw up your oil painting- as long as the layer underneath is dry, worst case scenario if you make a mistake is you wipe if off!

    By the way, the link in your signature doesn't go to the right place.

    your sketches have great movement - keep letting your pencil flow like you are! I also really enjoy your thumbnails.

    burialchamber: yeah, i think i will be doing a Painter project on that one... (if it's the same one I'm thinking of) ..did ALOT of wiping tonight lol...& fixing sig. (thanks for the heads up and the great comments!!!)

    Parcel-Sisters: thanks alot for the compliments!
    --------------------
    Ok, so I got some hours in the old painting... pushed some values, lightened up the ones in the back ground, the sky is a bit brighter, more colorful around the figure/horizon...
    will have to go in tomorrow or the next day to carve out some of those light areas i scumbled over tonight due to the wet paint...
    now, onto some Painter work for a bit...

    Ring Planet.

    #4 on the thumbs above:
    Just wondering which one people respond to better....
    (I like the idea and possibility of thousands of earth-like planets in our galaxy alone, and wonder what they might look like, what differences may exist, etc.)

    My favorite is the painting of the boy and fish. Reminds me of seurat's paintings- the "bathers" and the like. Look him up if you haven't already, his exploration of edge in both drawings and paintings were astounding.

    Your other works are cool too, but i'm wondering if you're going to paint over the filter? You've got this lovely planet painting, but then there's this very harsh filter put on it that takes attention away from the work and subject and onto the filter itself. It definitely upped the contrast, but now the painting could use a little more paint again
