It's alive!




I've been busy with freelance, teaching, and school so I'm a bit behind. I have a bunch more things to update in the next few weeks. Here are a couple of environment paintings I did in class as demonstrations for my students. Both are digital using Photoshop CS5

Happy Labor Day!



This latest piece was done for The Art Order Story Extraction challenge over at www.theartorder.com. The painting is based on an excerpt from the novel "Black Bottle" by Anthony Huso.

Sketches











Just a few sketches and speedpaintings. The bottom two black and whites were done as a 1 hour speedpainting demonstrations at the Art Institute of California, San Diego. I then used one for another demonstration in my Monday morning class on how to add basic color to a B&W image.

Process







Here is a recent digital painting of Jonothan from the weekly life drawing/painting session that I host at the Art Institute of California, San Diego from 6-9pm every Thursday night. I saved my progress after every 20 minute session for a total of 120 minutes (2 hours) for the painting using Photoshop. I used 3 brushes: an elliptical brush, a textured round brush, and a soft round brush.
