Back From Vacation

So I was in the Outer Banks in NC for a week. I was hoping I would be able to paint, but the only art store there had not a lot of paint in stock. Luckily I still had a sketch book and I did make it to the aquarium there to do some sketches. And I did some anatomy sketches out of my head for fun and one in the airport on my way there.

Delicious Cupcake

Here is a painting of a cupcake that I did. After I finished the painting, I ate the cupcake. It was delicious!

Helping A Friend

So a week or so ago a friend of mine was working on a digital mountain painting for a study from a photograph. He wanted feedback so I did a paint over for him.

Here is his painting.

Now my biggest concern was when he sent this over to me were the values and saturation. Right now everything is way too flat and dull. Not only that but the edges were way too soft for mountains.

My paint over.

Here I just painted the values more like they are in the photograph, greater contrast better sense of light and shadow.

The photo ref. I don't know the source.

Now its up to him to finish it.

Zoo Sketches and a Skull

I have been slacking on posting stuff up on my blog. Here are some rusty zoo sketches I did today and a skull I painted a few days ago.
