Oh Hai!

Hey everyone!  Guess its time for me to get off the sidelines.  I have a bunch of stuff sitting on my harddrive that never sees the light of day -- gotta get better about that...

Some character variation sketches for a personal project I'm developing.  First pass--

A little refinement--

I'm flattered to have been invited to contribute to such a talented group.  Thanks for letting me tag along! :]

wish it was warm again...

And in the element of light
The sun reflected from the waves
Inshore it spangles
The child of air is borne upon the wind that blows across the sea
And in the element of summer
The cliffs suspended in the heat
The air in columns...

I wish i knew who wrote this.

Theme Paintings ( Under the Sea)

So on James Paick's blog he speaks about the different themes one can paint for environmental concept art. So I have decided that each day I will try to bust out 3 - 5 paintings for that particular theme ( I know he can do 5 in a day , I am not that fast .... at least not yet)

Something that I started is that I work on each painting in 20 minute intervals , and I put an online timer on my other screen. When I see that time winding down I force myself to be bolder with my decision. As soon as it hits 20 minutes I start a new painting and I keep rotating. So I kept each one of these to 2 hours a piece. However, before all this I gather some reference and spend about 20 minutes doing rough sketches on pen and paper before jumping to digital. I will be doing more tests on this and themes. Next theme is cliffs.
