Aerial Steampunk Warrior

Aerial Steampunk Warrior
Worked on this for the Outcast Odyssey on deviant art.  This one forced me to spend a little more time working on the image.  I think I pushed myself further with this one but looking at the other entries have a long way to go.  Working to a deadline has made me think about my process and have a few ideas I would like to put int practice for the next one.

Redemption

Redemption
The past 4-6 weeks I have ended up with a number of personal works in various stated of unfinished.  I have tried to wok sequentially with no more than 2 works open at the same time so this is something new.  Don't think it is such a bad thing but I hope to get some more to a finish.  This is first of this batch.

Mountain 29DEC14

Mountain 29DEC14
A quick sketch of the mountain I can see from my window.  A light dusting of snow on it on that day (did not last).  Into 2015 and a  happy new year to you.  Coincidentally this is post number 501 on this blog.  Noticed quite a few folks have migrated to tumblr but I will hold fast here for now. 

Here's to a good year for all of us.!

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas.  Wishing you and yours the very best of the season. 
As the year comes to an end I am fortunate enough to have a little time to pause, rest and reflect.

Still Life Snow Globe

Still Life Snow Globe
Long time since I practiced a digital still life. A seasonal subject.  This was done with just the monitor for light.

Farmall Cub

Farmall Cub
Another small study in oils (8"x10") from a photo.  A Farmall Cub.  Used the same process as for all these most recent studies.  Did a drawing then mapped in the values in raw umber and then detailed.  Use a big brush for as long as possible.

Landscape- 2 trees

Landscape- 2 trees
Still practicing the oils (8"x10").  This was from a photo.  I actually did a photoshop study of this in 2011. Outlined in pen then did a values layer in raw umber.  Will have to stick to Photos for now really stormy here the past few days and more to come.

Landscape -Four trees

Landscape -Four trees
Tried out a different approach for this.  Started with a photograph but it moved very far from it in the end. Worked on it for short spurts over a month.
