Ruppel Studies

Because I am such a fan of Uncharted 3 and Robh Ruppel. I can help but try to do some studies of his style of paintings. I seriously have no clue of how he does it haha. But these artist studies are great for me to explore things out of comfort zone. Here are couple of the results.

Themed Paintings - ( Under the Sea )

So on James Paick's blog he speaks about the different themes one can paint for environmental concept art. So I have decided that each day I will try to bust out 3 - 5 paintings for that particular theme ( I know he can do 5 in a day , I am not that fast .... at least not yet)

Something that I started is that I work on each painting in 20 minute intervals , and I put an online timer on my other screen. When I see that time winding down I force myself to be bolder with my decision. As soon as it hits 20 minutes I start a new painting and I keep rotating. So I kept each one of these to 2 hours a piece. However, before all this I gather some reference and spend about 20 minutes doing rough sketches on pen and paper before jumping to digital. I will be doing more tests on this and themes. Next theme is cliffs.

Morocco and Friends

This last week, Paul Richards came to visit us in Madrid. Such an honor to have such a skilled artist.

During that week we took a trip to Tangier, Morocco. We were extremely blessed to have met some fellow artists through the Deviant Art community that drove 6 hours out of their way just to come meet up with us and show us their country. It was gr
eat to experience their culture and also life as they know as concept artists. I was able to visit the beautiful country side city ofChefchaouen (Known for its beautiful blue buildings, if you have never seen you must google it).

There is no doubt I would have not been able to experience such a beautiful city had it not been for them. So this painting is dedicated to them , Thanks for the experience guys

3 years ago

September 24, 2011

It's only been 3 Years look at how I've grown
I'm just in my zone, I call this shit the calm
Yea, but I'm the furthest thing from calm
Dedicated to my mom, and I swear my word is bond
Everything will be ok and it won't even take that long
You can see it in my face or even read it on my palm
Leader of the new school it's proven and it's known
I'm sittin' in a chair but in the future it's a throne

Only 3 years to this day yet so far to go. That was the first painting I ever posted. So I decided to repaint it. To all the people that have let me into their lives , and to the people who have inspired me and helped me along the way, to all my supporters and doubters. I thank you . Let us see how far we can take this!!!

Splurge Break Session

Done between lunch breaks on and off for about a week or so . I kind of hate taking so long on a piece ( its probably the concept artist in me telling me to get it done and crank it out) . But on this one I took my time and really tried to enjoy myself and life how it came out. No expectations kind of thing.

A little inspired off of Guild Wars 2 stuff , would be such a cool game to work . One can dream I suppose.

Pictures from Portugal Coming Soon!!

So My "ACTUAL" present that I have for her is in Madrid , but until she gets here , this my present to her .

I have been blessed a lot in my life and one of the greatest things thus far is having Stefanie in it

I know being with an artist is never easy , I dedicate a lot of time and effort to my craft, however through all of this she has always stood by me and has never faltered. Next to my mother she has always been my biggest fan , and I know without her none of this would be possible ,

so happy birthday baby

i love you soooooo much : )
