Whew, it's been way too long since I posted. I did a bunch of lame scribbles for Team Challenge, rather than clutter up my SB with that junk you can check them out here.
So here's some real stuff. Aaand my show announcement! I doubt anyone's anywhere near Maine, but if you are, drop by!
Jesus dude, somehow your work gives me the same buzz that made me want to draw when i was a kid. electric!
you ever read any Tim Powers? youd love that business.

all the very best to you and yours as usual buddy.
I'm curious, by recent works, will you be just showcasing those two, or will there be other pieces in the show? Anyway, awesome paintings.... i drooled Good luck with the show!
Your work's so god damn cool man, I should really stop by here more often, it's awesome!
Do you mind telling me what medium you use for your oils? I really want to try doing some oil paintings but I have no clue where to start or what to get.

Hey everybody! Thanks for all the comments! I went on vacation for a week and now I'm really busy getting ready for my show. I'm counting the days until September 7th. So here's just one little painting for now, I'll post a real update on September 8th or so.
@ajtabril - Thanks! Haha, no way a master. Maybe look to Peleng or Albino-Z for that.
@Hayden_Zammit - Thanks!
@Mateja - Thanks M! :*
@JoshDArtist - Thanks a lot!
@SpaceJelly - Thanks!
@NickyBeats - Haha, yeah. I can't wait to meet you in real life man, that'll be a first. I don't want you to have false expectations though, I'm some kind of weirdo who doesn't drink. So I'll pass on the beer, but I'm all for doodling dragons!
@KingKostas - Thanks a lot, you are a legend yourself.
@Velocity Kendall - Heh, well I'm glad you like it, pal, thanks. No, haven't read any Tim Powers, I'll definitely check it out when I have time though. Thanks!
@aks9 - He he he thanks.
@Lightship69 - Hey Lightship! Heh, yeah, geography cuts both ways. I hope it goes well too! Thanks Mate!
@MacTire - Thanks!
@warburton - Thanks!
@witcrack - Heh, no that's not all. There will be about 20 oil paintings in the show, five full-size finished drawings, and some sketches. Thanks!
@Ludic - Hey Ludic, thanks! I use Liquin for my oil painting medium. I'm sure it's not for everyone (though it does seem pretty darn popular); it dries fast and gives a nice, flowy consistency. It can change your colors a tiny bit, I haven't done the experiments to see how that works, but it's not noticeable unless you're doing some pretty anal color matching. I do use some paint thinner for my umber underpaintings, but it kills the opacity and consistency of your paint, so I don't use it after that. And I mostly use soft, fine-haired synthetic brushes—they're very cheap and don't last terribly long, but I don't take very good care of them anyway, and they're very nice in the beginning.
That's all for now, gotta get back to work. Feel free to ask any other questions though, not that I really know what I'm doing. You can email me through my website if you prefer.
woah man ! that rendering in the last ones is superb!
aviable for fulltime and freelance
No posts in ages buddy!!
I hope you are well and making loads of cash from the work you generated at the show, but we, your sad and lonely mates want to know that you have not abandoned us post some more soon !!
Talk to me !! pls.
LOL I hope you are well my mate, all the very best with the work and i hope for more posts soon.
Yummy pencil pages! Keep on posting your great art!
Added your sketchbook to the pencil masters thread!
Well, hello friends. Alex - Thanks, you rockstar! bill618 - thank you surus - Haha, surus you are obsessed with pencil stuff. Thank you very much.
Lightship you are a saint, and a real hoot as well! Thank you very much, and thank you Flashback, and KingKostas, you dang master you. It was a complete coincidence that I was going through my bookmarks and checked this today. I was surprised and delighted to find these messages waiting for me. The truth is, I was, and am a bit ticked off about the Great CA Crash of 2012. Dang and bloody bad form to cut it off with only a few hours notice and right as Team Challenge came due. And even now it's not all back. The whole business is ridiculous. I've migrated to CGHub somewhat and Facebook slightly, but mostly just withdrawn. And I'm very, very hesitant to come back. I miss my friends here, you guys are great(!!!), but I don't want to support such a poorly run website.
If anyone would like to chat on Skype, I'm just "rossgrams" from Vienna, ME, United States. Or you can always email me through my website. I'd love to hear from anyone I know on here.
Lightship, actually yes, haha! I deposited the largest check of my life a couple weeks ago. The show was quite successful. I sold about half of the stuff in it, most in the first 24 hours. I'm trying to focus now on updating my portfolio with some decent new sci-fi/fantasy stuff. Oh, and I am almost done building onto my studio, doubling it in size.
i wish i could have made it up for that show man!!! im sorry to dissapoint, but school has taken over every spare second of my life!! haha but im almost done, and dont worry about not drinking... ill just have yours haha
Wow! These are really amazing. I love the pencil sketch of the barn with the truck in front of it. Really nice work!
weeeeeelll, alright. I'll come back. You can thank Fetsch for convincing me not to bugger off forever.
So! Here are all the images from my show that you haven't seen. If you want to see them all together and check I didn't miss any, go here: http://rossgrams.com/gallery_2012
And here are a couple drawings I did recently:
and a couple new digital WIPs:
. . . that's it.
