Beauty and the Beast painting

Here's one that I did for the slot industry.  I created most parts of the figures in 3D first and then painted in the softness.  I'm finding that I'm working that way a lot lately.

Movies That I Want To See

It's been too long since I've done a fun, personal project. Last week I had some time on an airplane to germinate some ideas, and here is the result.  I've always loved Aquaman and thought he's never gotten his due.  So here you go, Arthur Curry!

Spectrum Art Live Minis!

The magnificent Jon Schindehette ran a little competition to get a bunch of miniature artworks for Spectrum Art Live! this May 9-11, 2014 in Kansas City, MO.

Here are my humble contributions which will be available for purchase and will also include 3 prints of my ballpoint pen artist trading cards.

Wet on wet watercolor

Last month the Northern Arizona Watercolor Society (NAWS) had a special guest demonstration by Jeanne Hyland, who showed us a great technique on keeping your paper wet and workable all day, even in Arizona. I was enthusiastic to try it out, and this was my first attempt.
It's quite a change from my usual technique, as the entire surface is literally soaking wet. Details are not as easy to bring out.
This is 9" X 12" on Strathmore 160 lb. cold press.

Fan Art Friday - The Impossible Girl

Basically I wanted more practice drawing (faces in particular).
What better way to practice than to draw characters from a favorite show.
I did this one a few weeks back. Thought I'd post her to accompany the Doc.
