i agree!
totally a composition in itself!
Just proves that you're creating worlds
AND worlds within worlds!
sooooo glad the art vibe has spoken loud enough to your soul!
who needs a dumb dayjob when you can create beauty like this?

day jobs are for chumps, LLT! Unfortunately, I am in chumpville but I can escape now and free my mind!
Robb- how can you say you are having trouble? Your work is insane and incredible eye candy with fantastic moods!

and now for something completely different! At my job, I get nice doodle time when the computer is rendering a shot so today I drew a pirate and I started throwing some color down on him! He seems to be a dandy trying to convince us that he's tough! It's far from done but I'm all over the place creatively and I've got to roll with it!

Something new! I finally got my illustration board and am working on some actual paint paintings again! Thought I'd share the process. The first one here is still obviously in pencil mode

A detail of a new piece still in pencil mode

Now for a little paint.....at this point, it looks like total crap but it is just a real sloppy rough in on top of a sealed pencil drawing....normally, I just dive into a piece with color but I'm trying a more traditional approach and am working from a comp.....these are small fetishes too so my mechanics need to adjust to working this size
more soon

His expression is priceless!
Snooty,yet pissed off!
Glad you're diving in
and returning to the challenge of traditional painting!

thanks LLT! As promised, here's a progress shot!

Still working everything out, especially my chops! By the way, I'm right on schedule with getting paint on my clothes! I love it!

SP, I assume this is the same one you posted last night? I don't know jack about painting and it just amazes me the layers that go in and how much a painting changes as it progresses.

Can't wait to see progress on the big guy and the volcano.

Thanks MDM! Every artist has a process that works.....I'm going back to my roots and am exploring the mechanical process of painting again which is lacking digitally. I love painting in photoshop but I do miss the physical tangible object at the end of the day......plus, I want to get primitive baby! Here's a revised pencil of Pele's Guardian( alternate title: Bob Hope Tiki with Cinnamon Roll Eyes)

Excellent sketches and work, suburban pagan! I like creating art the old way too!

I love working analog, Sam! Thanks again! Here's a piece I've really gone retro with: 7B pencil on cold press illustration board. With my digital paintings, I like to just dive in and let the piece evolve.... with pencil, I'm much slower and deliberate. Two completely different approaches that sarisfy the art lust equally!

As many of you may know, my main thing is creating drama and mystery with color, but I wanted to give tonal work a chance too! Hope you like! The funniest and most difficult part of painting traditionally is getting a decent photo of the piece! I need a better camera and scanning an acrylic painting is a crime in my hands!

Your chops seem to be properly busted

update of "wall hanging in pencil"... almost there!

And now... as a tribute to Gambino's "Guess this person contest", I ask you all to name this "person"......... might be too easy.. or it might be difficult since I just started the damn thing!



LLT, Thank you sir....I think I will contribute a couple of necklaces since one of the requirements is that it has to be original and most of my work is just prints until these two pencils...... it feels good to work mechanically instead of digitally!

Hey Kevin - very cool sketch! Right now, he looks like he's saying "Heeeeeeere's Johnny!"
