Return of the fleet

I think parts of this pic work okay, some not so much. I wanted the foreground element to be very dark and a bit more graphic (supposed to be black rock in DEEP, dare I say otherworldy shadow)...HOWEVER..I'm not sure it's workin. Looks a bit like the foreground is at night, the BG late afternoon. Thoughts, ideas,take out orders.....

Completion of Bot-27: World domination imminent

I'm trying to loosen up, so I figure doing some quick studies might help.It's about 5 by 7 inches. Pretty small considering some of the pieces I've done were 12"x18". Ah well, Who knows!

Friday, September 08, 2006 the mighty have fallen...

Went to the super7/afterworks 2 signing and arrived in time to see this. Wicked!

Usually I'll pick at a piece for a while over the course of a week or so. The last few have been bigger, and for this one I wanted to sit down and just go with a rough idea.8 1/2 by 11. No real planning except a thumbnail I sketched. About 2-3 hours I guess.

My friend Andrew King!

A good friend of mine decided to abandon his day job and pursue a career painting full time. He has been doing it for more than a year now, making a living painting what he wants to paint and has never seemed happier. He has worked in the animation industry, and been an art director for live action features. Also, just about one of the most interesting people I've ever met. Check out his stuff:

Raspy colored..

Wow, this is quickly becoming the post that didn't want to happen. I lost the original digital paint file of this image and then decided to do a simpler "cel" paint style. I did it on a pc and tranferred it to my mac. The difference in saturation was crazy.Both monitors are supposedly calibrated... I tried to fix it to get close to what I had done, but I wonder how it will be viewed on different monitors. huh..

I spent a few hours painting this today, and lost it in the joyous land of the computer. Vanished.... I must have over written the psd file when I created a new page to do color tests . Oh well, I shall start again. YAY!!!
