Western Painted Turtle... shell.More anatomy studies from the same book. Recently I'm starting to sketch color studies more earnestly in Photoshop to practice painting digitally in preparation of the upcoming Robot Pencil Mentorship in creatures. I'm sketching from life as much as possible, so all these studies are from observation except that grey shrimp. Other than continuing to get better understanding of the digital painting process for the next several years, next step is to paint a fu [...]

Anatomy studies con’t

By |August 19th, 2015|Syndicated Content|

Finished with the long, first chapter on horses, and now starting the second chapter on the deer family. This is the Ken Hultgren's The Art of Animal Drawing book. Also was at the local zoo sketching some animals while they moved about. Definitely a different ball game than making study sketches from anatomy books and photos! Biggest down side is it's kind of far, and there's en entry fee.  [...]

201503 – personal projects

By |March 14th, 2015|Syndicated Content|

Finally got this half-done painting, well, done. The wet oil paint and not having a good rig for photographing made a rather bad photo of it. This is testing 2 things: 1.) Replicate the back-lit effect with a gold background I saw in England, and 2.) Keep trying to get that iridescent and shimmering look on a creature in a painting. Last time I tried using watercolor, this time I tried oil paint. It isn't working very well yet. I [...]

AMNH 2014 Winter Animal Painting class – 2

By |February 19th, 2015|Syndicated Content|

This is from a night class at the American Museum of Natural History called Animal Painting, taught by Eric Hamilton and Greg Follender. The class lets students paint and sketch in the North American Mammal Hall. The fact that you get to go in the AMNH after official hours, and sketch and paint in peace and quiet the animal models is pretty awesome. I took a camera with me and took pictures of all the diorama in that Hall front and center without bumping into any other tourists, hahaha! This is [...]

Commission floral cover all of 2014

By |January 9th, 2015|Syndicated Content|

All of the floral covers for a non-profit organization. It's sort of for charity although they paid for the paper. Some of them are based on my own photos, some are pulled from internet.  Material: stock card paper, gouache, and some acrylics. All painting on A4 papers. This is what I imagine the cover page would look like after they put text on it:  [...]

Year of the Sheep illustration

By |October 21st, 2014|Syndicated Content|

More sheep! And there will be another one because of the Year of the Sheep, and that my father's a Sheep. Might just use this one as the sketch for the painting to save time.  I stopped counting hours because there will be no way to make any kind of profit by the hour - if anything sold at all. But it's about 12 hours including sketching and scrapping previous designs.  This is meant to imitate the style of Chinese porcelain painted with azure glaze.  Prussian [...]
