Well of Souls

Here's a piece done for our illustration class as well as the Diablo 3 Portrait of a Champion art contest.

Had a ton of fun working on this and I think it's a benchmark for my work in terms of complexity!

Will post up a walkthrough soon.

Figures & Thumbnails

Then here's about a 2 hour figure painting done from life- we're going to start focusing a lot more on using oils in our figure sessions at the studio, I'm pretty stoked! I think this first one came out pretty good- still need to work on my construction and ability to render form with paint, but I think these are some of the best fleshtones I've done in oil.

Then this one is about an hour long plein-air painting I did a month or two ago; I was trying to capture the glow of the sun which didn't quite work out but there's parts of it that are working pretty well for a quick sketch.

And then these last two are some thumbnail development for the group IP we've been working on in class, doing character and environment design. I think the Victorian Teslas are some of my better character concepts, need to keep cranking out a ton of these thumbnails to keep working on my design sensibilities. Lots of fun!
