character study

fantasy genre character study. 

basically, i reference some concept that i like, then rif on the pose, and then break down the shapes of the costume to their basic design. if there's something i don't like, i change it and try to improve on it.


virtual plein air

I recently joined a new Facebook bandwagon, Virtual Plein Air. There are so many talented artists doing awesome work. I'm truly inspired everyday, and then I paint for it every once in a while...
The gimmick is that you surf Google Earth Streetviews and find something that strikes your fancy. You do a painting and post a link to the location. I love it. No thinking up uber-cool concepts, no magic mech necromancers, etc, etc. Just landscapes.

Here are some of my recent submissions.
