More Figural Work

Moldy oldies are fun. I made this a few months back and it has been sitting around on my hard drive. Not a bad attempt, but it still needs some work. It isn't finished, so don't be too hard on it haha.

Apples and onions

Still life color study. 45 min

Here is a quick little painting. I think that I should start painting more still life. Previously I mentioned that I need to work on materials and I believe this will probably be the quickest way to improve that ability. My perception of color has come a long way since a year ago, and I have a few pieces in the pipe right now that I think have a lot of potential. I will post them as soon as I think they are reasonably presentable haha. Now that more people are actually following my blog I have a greater fear of posting sub par work, and hastily writing really awfully composed entries. (which I did quite often in the past)

Death Becomes Him

So here it is. The final version. As you can see it has gone through many, many changes. I think for the better. I decided the pose was not very dynamic, and chose to change it. As I mentioned previously there was another color version of this. I am not going to post it for fear that I would only embarrass myself. haha.

Clearly I still have a lot of things to practice. Such as material differentiation and rendering folds in cloth. I have come a long way though, and maybe someday in the near future I will be able to call myself a proper illustrator. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me out so far. Some people I feel need mention are the great and wonderful Don Seegmiller, Piero Macgowan, Kevin Bradley, John Stewart, Andrew Curry, Steve Jamerson, Justin Thomas, Bryce Homick, McClean Kendree. I linked to a few of their blogs so check their work out. They are all incredible artists.
