Hello all! Here is the first Jon and Arya piece. I had a really good time on this one and like I said before I’m gonna do another one with a different composition so keep an eye out for it. Also about to dive back into the book and there are some really big changes coming for that also. Thanks for looking.
Well Vancouver was beautiful and my lady and I had a lot of fun. Today is my first day getting back to my normal schedule. This was a really fun piece to do. I came up with it after seeing the movie Logan. I honestly didn’t expect the movie to hit me the way it did. It really was just an incredible movie not just a super hero movie. And I’m not gonna lie it hit me pretty hard emotionally. It was very hard to say goodbye to such an iconic character. Haha I know he isn't real but I totally grew up with this guy being one of my all time favorite heroes. I took a much different approach to this painting in the way that I never really just buried myself in it like I usually do with my pieces. I would bring this guy out and work on it an hour here an hour there and I honestly enjoyed the process so much more. I found that I never dreaded working on it. I think over the years I have developed so bad habits in my process. So after finishing this guy and seeing the results I have decided to adopt a much more relaxing way to work. The goal is to work on pieces for no more than 2-3 hours a day and just have more pieces going at once. And if I don't feel like working on a particular piece then I don't work on it. This for me is just a much healthier way to work I think. I don't grow to dread or hate my paintings. Instead I find myself wanting to work on them, and in the end I think the end result is just much better. You do your best work when you enjoy what you do, and I think I have finally realized that. Right now while I'm trying to build a following and make a name for myself I’m not making any money, so why not do whatever the hell I want. Well thanks for looking and I really hope you all enjoy this piece. Like always feel free to drop me a comment or whatever. Got some fun stuff planned so keep your eyes out.
Hello all. Been a few days since I blogged. Sorry I’m still trying to get into the habit of doing it every day. Hope everyone is enjoying memorial day. This is just some sketching I was doing of an upcoming character I will be introducing to Bloodshed. Not gonna go into who she is but she is gonna be one of the main characters more than likely. Also not sure if this is what she will look like. Will probably be doing some photoshop paintings of her soon to really work out her armor and costume stuff. Been nice doing most pencil sketching but i think its about time to get back to the paint grind. I have a lot of stuff that needs to get done for the book not to mention a bunch of pieces I want to get started. I am definitely gonna keep doing some sketching everyday though, even if its only like an hour or so. I can already see a change in my art for the better. I’m not so dependent on using paint and brush strokes to kinda cheat certain things I might not be strong at. Line drawings are very unforgiven and for me personally if I can draw some thing efficiently with just lines I can paint it much better. I think its because if you can draw something well with just lines then it means you have a strong understanding of how its built. Anyways hopefully I will have some fun stuff for you all this week. But I will be going to Vancouver for the first time with my lady to celebrate our 5th anniversary so we will have to see how much I can get done in between that. Thanks for looking guys.
