Landscape commission

Hey guys! I haven’t posted in a while (all summer), mostly because of the commissions I’ve been doing. Here’s one of the larger ones I did recently. It’s a piece for an artist’s website. He creates a lot of cool dubstep music and has commissioned me to do all his song covers and website illustrations.

The top picture is the original color, and the on the bottom is with some adjustments the hue, saturation, contrast, color, etc.

Later today I might post some pictures I took at Block Island earlier this summer. And, also, in the coming weeks look out for an animation I was commissioned to do for a Minecraft server. It’s the largest project I’ve ever done and it’s turning out to look pretty good. Here’s the website of the server (They have a REALLY nice website!): http://warcraft.gg

Day 72- Like music on the waters

Like music on the waters

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is relatively my first time painting water, liquid even, and I like how it came out. That’s why I put the extra pic of just the water above. I’m not too happy with the cloud dude, and I’m just now realizing I put way too much detail into him. I should have painted him more vaguely.

Beyond the Mask Fan Art

Beyond the Mask Art

Hi there! I didn’t get to make a daily post today, but I recently saw Beyond the Mask, and decided to create some fan art for it. It took me pretty much the whole day to complete, and unfortunately, after exporting everything, I accidentally deleted the file with all the separate layers. 😦 Total bummer. I could probably edit the pic decently if I ever needed to, and I saved a couple different versions, but it still isn’t fun to have hours and hours of work flattened accidentally. So yeah… I have two versions here, you can click on either one of them to make them bigger. The one above is the original, and below is one for use as a desktop background. And yes, he doesn’t have a mouth, this is for a few reasons: I didn’t really know how to execute it without messing the pic up, it looks cool… to me and I’m too lazy to try.Beyond the Mask Art (Desktop With Logo)

As for the process, I made the orange, out-of-focus explosion-thing behind him by downloading an explosion pic and putting it in blender. In Blender, I used a defocus node with the heptagon type set (Which is the same kind they used in the movie, yes… I counted the corners of the unfocused light while in the theater. 🙂 ). Then I exported the result, put it in sketchbook and used a custom brush I made to make more, clear heptagons. That was the explosion. I’m not sure how long it took me to paint Will (The man), I tried keeping track, but between work and small breaks, I gave up. I like how most of it came out, the hat, his cloths (particularly the crease in the back of his right elbow, his blowing coat and the buttons). I know all the clothing isn’t completely accurate, I used miscellaneous pics from the site, and snapshots I took from the trailer. There are some parts of him I didn’t like after, but I can live with it. Iv’e only just started trying this style of art, so I’m sure there is some improvement to be made. But all in all, I like it.

Day 62- Dolphin Painting

Dolphin painting

Just a test-ish project today. Iv’e never really tried going for a painted look before, so I decided to test the synthetic paint brushes in sketchbook and this is what happened. Not my favorite, but better than I thought I would do.

Alright, here’s the panda that was chosen by popular vote… actually, the bottle had the same amount of votes, so I had to put them through a “random picker”. The panda was chosen by the picker:

Day 25- Ping ands Pong

Ping and Pong-01

These guys may look simple, but it took me more than an hour to draw em up. It was mostly the idea that took a while, not really the actual creation. Also, you may have noticed, or not, but I screwed up pong’s (on the right) shadow pretty bad. It looks okay, but still bothers me. 😛

Day 23- Bungie Jumper

Bungy jumper-01

I was swamped with projects last week, which aren’t all my own, so, I decided to do a simper character today. Which, unless you hadn’t noticed, is a stick figure bungie jumper.

The picture is from Block Island of a small rock out cropping that looks like a giant cliff if you glance at it.
