Don’t get me wrong, I am so grateful to have work, and to finally be able to get paid to do what I love. But man is it driving me nuts not being able to show you guys what I’ve been up to!! I have to wait until the works have been published before I can add them to my sites, so it seems I’ve been inactive, but actually I’ve been really busy! I’ll have a personal work done within a week or so to show everyone though I promise! Thank you all for still stopping by! I have to get back to painting..
This was a tough commission. I don’t have a lot of experience with robots or machinery, but I always love a challenge. The worst part though was when my tablet crashed when I was almost finished so I had to start over. I was lucky enough to get twice the experience on this one, lol.
This is not what my daughter had in mind when she asked me to paint the little mermaid. Couldn’t help myself, lol.
This is a cut out from the illustration I’m currently working on. I’m sure you can pretty much guess what is happening in the scene, lol. I should have the entire thing done by tonight, we will see how things go. Enjoy!
Well it’s now been 21 days since I delivered my Companion Tablet back to Wacom for repairs, again. Now it seems that it has been lost in the mail, or stolen, neither of which has been actually confirmed by either side. It really wouldn’t be that big of a deal, due to the fact that I have another Cintiq to paint on. Besides the point that I had 80+ hours in two paintings that are saved on that tablet, that both had deadlines that are now missed. I’ve heard many artists talk about this nightmare, but have been fortunate enough not to go through it myself. Until now. All of this could have been prevented if I would have been smart enough to save them to my desktop or flash drive. I love new learning experiences, but this one has proved to be a bit frustrating. Off to the store for flash drives….
Well here it is! It was hard to decide to call it finished, but after staring at it for so long I might just make it worse if I keep messing with it. I made some serious changes to the dragon, he was looking a little goofy. Next time I paint eyes that big, someone speak up! But anyways I hope you all like it, it sure did take forever. Let me know what you think!
Still pushing through the details. Most of the work I have left to do is around the border of the image, mainly in the top left corner. It’s better to save the fun details until last but I couldn’t help myself, I went ahead and detailed most of the focal point. Now I’m stuck finishing the boring parts, lol. But I’m happy with how the character is turning out so far. The next post will be the finished image, wish me luck!
