Good Night.

Here be a painting I've done after an adorable sketch
by the Lovely Danielle Eden. I'm just a sucker for cute little girls. :)
I mean... not... not in a perverted way, mind you. not at all.
I mean... I like little girls, is all... I mean, I'm not a creep, you know.
shut up.

Hey there! so, this one's a fun and quick painting of a sketch by a good friend of mine, Renaissance-man Doron Meir.
:D

Hey Red!

Here be another real fun collaboration I did with one of my favorite artists working today:
Luigi Lucarelli. he mastered shape control and character appeal in such a way, it makes my insides melt every single time I look at his work.
anyway, enough pandering.

Another fun Painting done after the great Matt Smith. :)


Trinquétte Cyborg femme fatale

My entry for the wonderful Trinquétte Publishing challenge. this week the theme was an open one, so I went for it and had a blast. the pose in the ref was tricky, the legs especially and I'm still not happy with them. but hey look - shiny lens flares! :)

Tutorial

I was asked by a lot of good people if I could explain a bit the process behind the Pippi Longstocking piece (see previous post here). so, I whipped up a quick Tutorial using the same lighting scheme more or less.
hope it makes sense and benefits you guys. enjoy! :)



Fun with Friends

I've been real busy lately, but I did find some time for one of my favorite pastime activities -Collaborations. well, this time it's more of a painting over some artist-friends' sketches. :)

these two were done after the lovely Danielle Eden:





and this funny guy was done after the wonderful Ariel Belinco:


P!nk

Alecia Moore, AKA Pink - done for the fantastic Caricaturama challenge on FB.
never been a fan of her music, but I do  think she's hot. am I being superficial? probably. ;)



Selfie

All of a sudden I realized I haven't painted a self portrait in a while.
so, there you go.
:)

Oh My...

This one's my Humble contribution to the FB Caricaturama challenge.

gotta love me some Daniel Plainview.


some "There Will Be Blood" Studies, yo.
about 30-35 minutes each.

once again, I wasn't too concerned with likeness here, the goal was mainly to examine the overall shapes and try and capture some of the mood/color/lighting of the frame.

down Below you can see how I do what I do, I hope this makes sense and benefits someone somehow. :)


you do not talk about it

"I felt like destroying something beautiful..."
and so I did. ;)
these are some Fight Club Studies, about 30-35 minutes each.
(a time-limit urges you to get things down fast and dirty, and it is challenging, bub.)
