These are incredable. There very rich compositionally and just...Incredable.
Beautiful images. Dang, you need to post more shots like this, even after the workshop. Love to see the detail shots of the traditional work. Love to see some wip shots on these as well. Thanks for the post.
That's awesome J.P...totally makes me want to pick up my traditional paints again. Those detail shots are sweet!
Unfortunately I can´t come to Austin to get the last kick to start oils .
Hope to see you once!
<Insert witty remark here>

Bloody excellent, Targete!
Big respect in every aspect. :chug:
I can´t come to Austin. I would have loved to see your originals and seeing you painting.
I've been thinking about what demos I might like to do at the workshop and to keep it simple enough for all to understand. So I thought I would share with you some quick pics of me workin, no biggie. Just wondering If I will work on something very detail or loose like the first image here which took about 4 hours and would be good for a demo. Also figured to show you the pieces in their natural states rather then all digitally enhanced etc.
This guys was done on an 11x14 canvas board with an acrylic underpainting and finished in oils. The canvas is to rough for the type of detail I like to put but is very easy to work in and texture, I'll explain more at the workshop.
The images Below are me workin on a tighter painting, the brown sepia areas are the under painting which ofcourse will be painted in with oils.
I usually start off with larger brushes and whine down to smaller rounds, a good tip is to use your flats to lay color and your rounds to blend and and add detail. I'll explain more at the workshop which I know will be a blast!. Hope this gets you guys fired up to come.
Just added a piece that started out in my sketchbook and painted in Photoshop. See you at Austin.

Thanks everyone for the kind words, and great to know many of you still dig oil paints, I dont know there something about oils and any natural media that is raw and powerful. The amount of colors you can create just by accident is worth the mess.
Make sure you guys bring a sketchbook or pad to jot down specifics for all the demos that will be going on from the instructors.
I can't wait to see you work!
you sir are extremely talented
wow, these are awesome. the hairy horse painting is beautiful. I wish I could learn to paint like that some day.
DANG! I was excited to see your name on the instructor list.
The painting of the children riding on the giant horse has amazing colors, great high-fantasy stuff (or are they pixies riding on a normal-sized horse?).
Can't wait to see your work in person.
This is going to be nuts seeing shit like this up close and personal. Beautiful piece, the colors on the second piece are especially vivid.
can't wait to shake your hand dude...
Phenomenal color choices...:chug:
superb man! you must be a patient man.
Mmmm...droolalicious! I'm definately looking forward to watching some traditional work from you. This is going to be a great experience!

Really really bad ass, it makes me want to go paint right now, I really like the design of the second one.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
Non digital work boys... Very very nice!. I prefer the digital coloring than the traditional but this work is really, really, good.
Did you start with a original sketch or you painted directly on canvas?
my god! i love your stuff. i just checked out ur site, great insperation
oh boy...cant wait to see you paint big guy. we're gonna have a great time in austin.-c36
