    Back to the basics! Updated daily

    I'm a concept artist in the game industry and went to SCAD for undergraduate in Sequential art (comic books). I used to be much more active on the forums, but have taken a long break. Now I'm back!

    I've been very busy with work and a bit of freelance recently, and personal art has slipped through the cracks. Now it's time to take an active effort to return to fundamentals. Stay tuned for updates!

    I'm starting up a new side project -- following the 'skillful huntsman' model, I'm doing some illustrations to go along with a grimm fairytale. I've chosen "the white snake" -- which includes a nice selection of environments and a handful of characters. I'll be starting with the locations. Stop by to see more as I update them!

    Cool, another SCAD-ite! Which one did you attend, Savannah or Atlanta?

    Anyway, that first envrio is absolutely gorgeous and your rendering skills are pretty keen, too. Looking forward to seeing more!

    bad_painter: I went to SCAD savannah, and majored in comic books.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone! Here are some more photo-reffed still life paintings.

    Very nice start to a sketchbook.
    Enviros are fantastic. Look forward to more.

    Might I ask what brush you're using for the kitchenware still lifes?

    Here's some pears that I painted from a photo. Generally I spend about an hour and half on studies like these. Someday I'll move up to a full still life, though I'm going to stick with one or two objects for now.

    Nice pears, hehe.

    RE your question: All the value studies currently in my blog were done in Painter Tool SAI, using a smeary brush. There's a free trial available, should give it a go.
