I have been working recently on a pretty cool Iphone game...This was my first pass at one of the levels, the style was too rough and real, so it got rejected. The second version I did that was more cartoony definitely was more appropriate for the game. But I do like this one, so I think I might finish it out...and either way I had a fun time painting it.

Plein air

So I finally broke out the oil paints...I think it's been about a year since I really used them last. My friend Grim convinced me to go painting in the cemetery near my house. There were some really amazing spots and it was hard to choose one. I wanted something that wasn't too complex because I hadn't held a real paint brush in way too long, but still fun and interesting. The painting was pretty sloppy but I was happy with the overall product. I definitely want to start doing this a lot more, and get out from behind the computer more often.

Star Wars

Here are some color studies....jeez getting a good likeness is really tough...cause it's one thing just polishing a face to look good, but when it still has to look like someone, just one more added challenge.

more stuff

Here is some random stuff....I started doing some quick army dudes while looking at some photos, mostly as a study. Then I decided to do some full on photo studies, and they were super helpful and I'll probably be doing some more. And then I did a free sketch, really focusing on locking down that mood...and have fun :-)
