Then and now

To measure progress in ones art is never easy. I think it requires a lot of faith. But regardless I think it can be done.So I took an old painting I did 3 years ago and tried to reinterpret it again.
This what I came up with, I felt my head was in the right spot in that time , but I could easily remembered how scared I was to take chances in my art , impress people , get a job etc.

So This time around I tried to eliminate those things in my mind ,

new one
old one

Hope yall dig

Live Streamin Morning Warm Up

So I woke up a little late this morning and did a little live stream warm up . I didn't announce it just because I wanted to simply jam to my music and paint , If I usually have to talk then I can get distracted from time to time and it takes longer .

But you can watch it here[link]

I will prolly live stream tonight and take on questions and all that good stuff

CS5 1.5 hours ( Still a little too long lol)

Live Streamin

Here is the painting done from last night's live streams , It was about 1 and a half of painting , and then I woke up this morning and spent about 2-3 more hours , so about 5-6 hours total. ( Still kind of long when I think about it , I could easily be faster, just need to concentrate a little more)

What Started as a Demo

What started as a demo for my co worker/roommate Rob. Became kind of a full colored illustration/concept.

Big ups to edgar for all his suggestions while painting this , he even drew a basic shape of the monster on that bridge and I took it to a rendered finish. This is one benefits about living with other artists , is how they can push you and challenge your ideas while painting. Not to mention all the inspiration they can provide as well

This one of the more complex pieces I ever done , I kind of wanted a final fantasy type enviro with lots of people running around , more of a thriving environment as opposed to my usual stuff.

This is about 8 hours total , kind of long in my opinion , I think I can be faster.

I will be posting the psd of this piece soon so you can check out all the layers,

until then , We are having a house warming poker even at our apartment , wish me luck!!!

For My Lady

For my lady :iconsutefeni: , I am usually painting a lot more since she is back in the states getting prepared to move out here in august. It has been the longest I have been away from her so painting helps me keep my mind off the distance.

So anyway love you very much , and always thinking of you
