Here are two more paintings to go with the painting of the hiking path as a set of three. Both of these were painted from pictures taken off Google for practice. Both done in gouache on 6″x6″ MDF panel and sealed with Krylon Crystal Clear to protect the paint. Colors adjusted in photoshop to compensate for my scanner.
This is a painting done from a photo taken by a friend on a hiking trail. Done in gouache on 6″x6″ MDF panel and sealed with Krylon fixative spray to protect the paint. The colors were punched up a bit in photoshop to compensate for my scanner’s tendency to wash out colors.
So the squash project I started a few months ago got pretty derailed between finishing the actual drawings and getting them digitally cleaned and prepped for posting on Society6. But they’re all finally done! Here is the finished art print. Th previous post on this project only showed the cleaned squash drawings themselves, and that was all the way back in early June. Obviously the final print has a patterned and colored background to make it more interesting, and there […]
These are just scans of sketchbook pages from a few months ago that I never thought to post until now. It’s in the isometric style, quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Mostly just experimentation with a jungle-y sort of trend going on maybe?
Because I was pleased with the outcome of the onion/garlic/tomato foray, I decided to do more with some different members of the Plant Kingdom. These were done much smaller, all on a single piece of 14″ x 17″ bristol paper. I did them in mind to put them on mugs or tote-bags or something like that. Why not? Who doesn’t want tiny squash on household items? Based on photo reference found on Google Images. Bristol board, micron pen, Copic markers, cleaned […]
I’ve recently gotten interested in the field of scientific illustration, so I thought I would take a stab at some simple stuff. I was also feeling the urge to start using my old Copic markers again, which I haven’t toughed in years. I used Google Images for some simple reference, but did no direct transfer. I drew these from sight onto bristol board, did some line art with a sepia-colored Pigma Micron pen, colored them with Copic Sketch markers, and […]
This year I again participated in the Global Game Jam for 2015. I was on a team with two programers and one other artist. We joined dozens of other gamers at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park CA to spend 48 hours building a videogame from scratch while getting hopped up on energy drinks and free snacks. My team’s game is called “Witch Hunt” and it’s a lot cuter than it sounds. The Game Jam page can be viewed here: http://globalgamejam.org/2015/games/witch-hunt. Here is […]
So a while back I worked on a book cover for a sci-fi murder mystery. The NEAR by L. A. Jones is now available to purchase on Amazon as a paperback and as an e-reader. I read an early draft a long time ago and the book has gone through a lot of changes since the, so I don’t remember much of it. But I definitely enjoyed the first pages that can be read on Amazon. If you like sci-fi […]
