Figure seated

This was our model at the work session this week. Just a cell phone picture so it's not the best quality.

Napa Valley

I decided to try my hand at a speed-scape once again. It's been a while and I'm rusty - hopefully I can keep a few of these coming and tighten up the old skills. (35 mins)

Blizzard N00bz Contest Winner - Ghoulash

I entered a contest at my work to paint a custom reproduce-able 'n00bz' character. My team mate & friend Julien Lefebvre presented the idea to Blizzard & it looks like it stuck! Blizzard is working with Big shot Toyworks to mass produce these. There was also a part of the contest for custom non-repro toys that were very original with tons of mods - all of which were on display at Blizzcon! The 3 winners (located here) were all for sale as well as the 'Raynor' (Starcraft) model which was given away as part of the Blizzcon 'Goody Bag.'

My entry 'Ghoulash' shown at Blizzcon above. Also included is a quick spot Direct TV did on the winners. Here is my section as it played at the Blizzcon store right next to the main panel's audience that you hear in the background:

skinny girl

I tried to do a long pose here with Contè pencil. It's a pretty unforgiving medium but I managed to lose a few edges. The light we currently have at work is way too ambient. I'm hoping to get more of a direct light to create more dramatic shadows.

Seated Figure

Study of a model done at my after work session. 3 hour pose. I really enjoyed the cloth study in this one. Great folds and pleats - though I wish it had been a 5 hour pose.

Old Smokey

This is a work in progress. His name comes from that song about a meatball... I'm not sure what inspired me to paint him, but I have to take a break from him to work on some freelance stuff. I'll post the final once I get some personal time again.
