#156 JnJ paintover

Spent a better half of today painting over my Illustration, so this is hardly a speed painting, but I learned a ton.

I browsed Nathan Fowke's plein air paintings alot so Its probably heavily influnced by his work. He's an amazing artist.

#155 Purple Pants

Unlike many of my other speed paints, I started with a gesture and developed it into pretty detailed line work. I think this allowed me to be more confident during my painting process.

Painting Jack and Jill

I put so much time on my Illustration final, I decided to paint it as well. Still in progress.

The Making of "The Black Soulstone"

My friend Alvin pointed me to this hour long video of the process of creating this beautiful cinematic Its amazing how much reference gathering they do before any production. It seems, the better the artist, the more reference they gather. correlation maybe? haha check it out!
