It's been a pretty crazy week, but also a very, very awesome one. I may have some really great news to post soon, but until then it's just the finished image from Mike Bierek's illustration class. This one changed quite a bit since the original sketch, but I think it was for the better. I learned a hell of a lot about light and color, particularly when it comes to using saturation selectively.

Now back to thumbnails and onto the next one.

Another round of head painting over at Safehouse. Tonight I had the awesomely awesome Kemp Remillard giving me some advice and helping me fix what was (and still sort of is) some super messed up facial structure. Like all portraits, this eventually descended into yearbook-style doodling of Hitler mustaches and devil horns, but here's what came of it prior to that.


And the aforementioned Mi-go from the Art Order Lovecraft Creature Lab challenge. This was something entirely new for me. I've never been strong at creature design, largely due to a lack of practice. But joining in on this was one of the more fun art experiences I've had lately. The Art Order community as a whole is both extremely welcoming and helpful, and I'm extraordinarily happy to be able to be a part of it.

They See Me Updatin'

They hatin'

More work on this guy, and a 3-hour portrait (2:15 without including the breaks for the model) from Tuesday night head painting over at safehouse.

I will have a Mi-go concept to post tonight. Putting the finishing touches on it for the ArtOrder challenge.
