Second week if Inktober yanked from my Instagram. A lot of food this time around…
New piece! A little something on peaceful protest.
apologies if this is asked often, but I could not find a link to prints or a store, are you currently selling or planning to sell any originals, or limited editions? Outstanding work!
Thank you! I’ve been meaning to work out a print setup, but haven’t gotten around to it. In the meantime, prints are available at my Inprnt shop.
If a piece you’d like isn’t up there yet, just let me know so I can add it. As for limited editions in the like, that’s not something I have in mind at the moment. Maybe in the future!
Whew! I’ve been sitting on this for a while, but I’m so excited to announce that Light Grey Art Lab’s Dream Arcade is out for all to play! The folks over at LGAL did a fantastic job. It’s an awesome project, and it’s so much to play through everyone’s levels.
And without further ado, Play all the levels here! Feel free to donate to LGAL if you’d like or send love and fanmail to the artists of your favorite levels!
As for me, I did the assets for Level 22: The Great Harvest! It is rather, um, gardenish. You can also snag a print of my splash page here.
"Heart of Gold"
I’m going to refrain from posting the Neil Young lyrics, but it’s a mellow little tune…
Hi! So I was feverishly trying to analyze your painting process by only looking at finished pieces, but I figured I just ought to ask: Do you only use a solid brush almost 100% of the time? How do you deal with color - do you figure it out as you go, or map it out and then add detail? Haha thanks, I'm just super curious about how you do things :)
This is actually my first art question ask ever, so I’ll do my best! You’re actually pretty much spot on with the brush thing. Good eye. For a lot of my recent work I just stipple and pattern all over using the basic Photoshop brush, 100% opacity. If I feel some areas need a more painterly treatment or texture, and I’ll hit up my Kyle T. Webster brushes.
As for color, I generally scribble over my sketch with a rough palette to begin. I look at a disturbing amount of old landscape paintings and prints, so that’s often where my palette inspiration comes from. I’ll probably tweak the colors from my initial idea once I refine the rough shapes. The details involve a lot of eyeballing and spontaneous decisions, although I’ll usually end up working in muted versions of my original colors into the blocked shapes to fill out my color scheme.
There’s a fair amount of trial and error involved, but color is my favorite thing to study and play with, so it’s a good time. :)
Hope that answered your questions! I may try to post more process shots in the future if folks are interested.
Watched The Last Unicorn for the first time since I was a child, and so many more things make sense now that I’m an adult.
"Reflections I - V"
Some personal work, series-style! Featuring Cortis, a blobbish world-traveler.
So I found out today that this series was selected for inclusion in this year’s 3x3 pro show annual! These were some breakthrough pieces for me (and thus sentimentally important), so I’m completely ecstatic. :)
"Milk & Honey"
Day 18 of the 30-Day improvement challenge: Draw a car.
Or an extreme cakemobile, to spice things up.
Day 16 of the 30-Day Improvement Challenge: Draw a single-page comic with 5-6 panels.
It’s day 12 of the 30-day Improvement Challenge, but the view from my window is a fence (with the occasional squirrel/orange carcass). So here’s the Day 11 prompt instead: Draw a BG with 2-pt perspective.
