Trying out some Palette Knives....



I ended up substituting a friends class today - and it gave me a chance to demo some palette knives. Still trying to get back into the digital painting groove/feel/thingy...whatever. Anyways, I built a few palette knives, a variation on one that another friend showed me. The cool thing about these is that feels a bit more like how I draw by hand - holding the pencil at the side. I hate how no matter what stylus you use it ALWAYS ends up feeling like drawing with a mechanical pencil.

It was fun just to got straight at it in both cases - Photoshop has felt a lot easier in the last year, especially after getting a new laptop. Now if only the painting was easier....damn.

Oh yeah - Bunnies with a Maxim Machine Gun...


Bunnies with machine guns are cool. Especially Maxim Machine Guns in the trenches of World War One - "the Great War". This is a panel from a set of storyboards of mine - just another project to finish in the ever growing pile of work of mine.....someday it will all be finished.

Getting Back to Digital Painting - sort of....



Been meaning for a while to get back to "pure" digital painting....drawing straight into Photoshop and painting it. Work at the Academy has been so unrelenting lately - be glad to see this year over. Hopefully I'll get back more into the swing of things....

X-Mas Card: Part

In an attempt to be ahead of the game - I started sketching out this year's card. Hopefully I'll get the final Photoshop version done....Hopefully....if I get to somehow stop time...

TRICK OR TREAT!!! - yah, I'm way behind - so what?!!!

The end of the year has been far too busy....working my regular 40 hour week job, throw in a couple of classes I'm teaching, taking a class - and some freelance to just tighten the bolts even more....and yah, something going to fall though the cracks....mostly any sense of a regular sleeping routine....BUT, it FINISHED!!! Hooray....okay time for more coffee, cause I'm sure I'm forgetting something.....and it's probably important......
