Part of the reference I'm using for my next piece. This was sculpted with Super Sculpey over a wire armature bulked up with scrap paper and tin foil. Isn't it cute?

Old Farts Redux

Remember this guy? I did this painting wwwaaaayyy back in January 2008.

Well, I spent some time reworking the piece. And here it is! Ta Da!!

As you can see, I've worked on a more definite light scheme, added more value contrast, added a lot more variety to the leaves and a lot more color overall. And of course, there are the cute, Bobby Chiu-ish creatures on the tree branches on the left. Whaddya think???

ArtOrder Earthquake Dragon

This week's ArtOrder challenge: a dragon! Sweet!!

The premise was to create a Catastrophic Dragon. This particular one has power over earthquakes. Now I could've easily done some heavy dragon made out of rock, but I wanted to add some story to it. I took inspiration from the game Final Fantasy X, which had a creature called the Anima and an old Norse myth about the punishment of Loki, and combined them to create this creature. He's bound under the Earth for some trangression or act of hubris, and whenever he struggles, the Earth above shakes.

Happy Independence Day!

This land is your land, this land is my land,
from California, to the New York Island,
from the redwood forests, to the gulf stream waters,
this land was made for you and me...
