HEY!

Finally had some time again for personal work so I got around to finishing a Slig that I started a few years ago. :o I love the Oddworld games and am really excited for the re-release of Abe's Oddysee in HD later this week.

Mountain Stream - Wedding Board

Painting I did for my Wedding Welcome Board based on a Jaime Jones painting I love - I got rid of the giant monster from the original... I didn't feel it was 'wedding appropriate'.

Rocketeer

Any chance I had this past week (which wasn't much) I went back and cleaned up my Rocketeer sketch and brought it to a point that I felt was finished while still retaining the energy of the original rough.

With almost every painting I do, I like to try and experiment with something new and in the case of this piece it was all about lighting and lost edges. Lost edges are where elements fade into the shadows but your mind is still able to fills in the blanks.

Here I tried to make it prevalent in the top edge of Cliff's helmet rudder, his left arm and legs.

Suggestions?

30 Minute Spitpaints

I've been working on lots of cool stuff recently that I really want to show but I have to wait a few more months. :( In the meantime, any chance I can I've been trying the topics at the Daily Spitpaint group on Facebook. The rules are simple: 30mins or less, no photos, only painting.

These 3 are some of my favorites that I've done:

Cyborg Samurai, Bridge in the Fog and Noseless Face.

Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2014

To bring in the new year, here is the final painting I did in 2013 - finished on December 31st as a freelance commission.

I hope everyone has a great year filled with inspiration, completed goals and random (but frequent) happy moments.

Back to the Art... BATTLESUIT

Firstly, I want to thank everyone for their support on my last blog entry. It means a lot to have the support of so many great people. :) I understand that not everyone will agree with the action I took making it public but I felt that this kind of situation is kept quiet and swept under the rug far too much.  Maybe my actions have closed a couple of doors for me but that's something I'm willing to live with in order to share my experience.

No one can stop me from painting (short of cutting off my hands and feet and sewing my mouth shut).  Speaking of which...

This latest painting is something that I started working on at the beginning of October for a personal project. The idea is that this suit was once used for heavy-lifting and demolition but once Earth was invaded, was re-purposed into a fighting suit. This one is an early model that hasn't been repainted yet and so, is still bright construction machinery yellow.


Will have a edited video of the process for this guy uploaded soon.
