    Eclectix's Eclectic Works

    A bit of everything in here. Sculpture, illustration, abstract art, concept art; most of my work has been done in traditional media, but lately I've been branching into the digital realm as well. I'm going to post a small sampling of my old stuff as sort of a prologue before starting in on my recent work.

    First up is an illustration of the famous E.A. Poe, done in oil pastels on heavy paper.

    Next is a chess set I sculpted in wax. I then made the molds and cast them in hydrostone cement. After that are a few of my abstracts. These pieces were completed in 2005.

    Wow, I love it. Your work is really bold and striking. The Edgar Allen Poe pic is really evocative. The details in the framing and edges really suit that Gothic, heavy feel of his literature.

    The Chess pieces look really nice too. If you can get some close ups done, I'ld be really interested in seeing them. I love their shapes, both their general outline and in their detail.

    I'll stay tuned!

    These are from 2006, a year when I did mostly illustrations.

    On to 2007, a rather productive year for me. Most of my work at this time was done with oil pastels, although some were acrylics.

    2008 was a year for painting large abstract pieces in acrylics.

    I'm lumping 2009 and 2010 together; I did a lot of photography in this time but little else art-wise, as I was going through some personal stuff which made it difficult for me to find the time and space to create.

    The first one is for a graduation card/announcement.

    Woaaah, there's a lot of different unusual things going on in here.

    That chess set is incredible! Do you have any larger/close up shots? Would love to see them.

    What was the Nautilus painting about?

    So much in here already, keep it coming!

    Yeah, my style covers a lot of different genres. The nautilus one is sort of an expressionistic piece. It is supposed to suggest how ancient the instinct of attraction is, how deeply ingrained in us this thing we call "love" is; it's in our very DNA and has been reinforced over millions of years of ancestral sex through millions of different species.

    Anywho, here's a WIP for the latest ChOW contest. The theme is "Steampunk Aphrodite Goddess." I am working to bring out both the steampunk and the Aphrodite, but at the same time I absolutely hate relying on clichéd genre identifiers, so I don't want to use hearts or cupids, nor goggles or lacy hats.

    Thanks for stopping by my finished sketchbook and giving my really useful advice and encouragement. You have some great textures in your work. One of your weaknesses I think is your faces. I think you should study drawing faces some more because overall, your proportions look pretty good to me. Even some of your dragons faces aren't drawn as well as their bodies. Overall I like your ideas, especially the last image in post #11.
