Some more concept art for my Project Night project. I was thinking of a waterfall /oasis like area in the mountains of the desert. I haven thought of what events would happen at the waterfall yet.

Daily Paint 29 – Sea monster attacks boat

daily-paint-29

I need to do more of these environment story paintings. This painting came from just playing around with shapes until something appeared. That thing is this sea monster fish. It looks much more lively and interesting then my last sea monster painting in 2013. I think I leveled up a little.  An hour more or less

Character 2.5 – Movember Barbarian (wip)

image

Forgive the cruddy quality. I took a picture with my android tablet. I am out of town but wanted to continue drawing the characters on weekdays. Being the genius that I am, I brought the wacom tablet with me but forgot the freaking pen. So I sketched this on paper. I spent around 15 mins on this, granted he needs more work done. I deviated a bit from the ref image this time. I was in a November mood so I gave him facial hair.

Daily Painting No.40 (Gryphon Pet WIP) (Alexis)

gryphon concept art v1 wip digital painting

Concept art for Alexis’ pet gryphon. He is a loyal guardian to Alexis. It’s is a rather small gryphon (a microgryph is what I will be calling it, a rare pet in Alexis’ world), about the 1/3 of the size of a human being. But don’t let his small size fool you. Anyone that messes with Alexis will get seriously messed up. There is a small sub-plot about how the gryphon came under her care and what the gryphon was once before. Critique, Repaint the Talons, mix and blend the painting to make it less rough. Feel free to critique or comment about my painting. Painted in Photoshop; Time spent 3 hours so far.

Daily Painting No.32 (Dragon WIP part 1)

dragon painting

Here be a dragon. the head is based on a dragon ‘self portrait’ painting a did a week ago and I used it as a base for this painting. the eye(s) are the only thing remaining form the old painting. I needed a break from still life painting today, yet I made sure to make a light reference. Even though this dragon is out of my imagination, the light ref should help me a lot. I come to the conclusion it is foolish to painting without a solid thumbnail and a light ref (and possibly a color study when I brave up to paint it). I have a dual screen so I find it enjoyable to paint while watching a movie. When wal-mart had its black-Thursday sale (I guess Thanksgiving should be renamed Debts-giving) and bought about 20 two dollar DVDs and a few four dolor blu-ray disks. Most are not on netflix so it felt justified.

I will alternate this painting between my still life paintings. I am not concerned about speed, just making looked finished

Self critique:the fins look to flat, add depth, make the scales on the neck interesting, research back wings to make them correct.
