#161

This Friday, Jon Clapp gave a great lecture on the optics and science of water for illustrators. I learned a lot and wanted to apply what I'd learned in a painting. I also tried to apply Goro's advice and really push the light and mood.

Todd McFarlane interview - Kingdoms of Amalur

I was delighting to see this video in my youtube subscription box today. its a 30 minute video with 2 people I admire in two totally different ways. Sean (day9) Plot interviewsT odd McFarlane on the new game: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, of which Todd was art director. I played the game a little bit and the art and animation is superb. So naturally I was excited to watch this.

#160 Paintover by Goro + a few figures

Goro Fujita gave me a great crit on my last painting noting that I can push the light further. Ive been doing this same thing with my last few paintings, so I'm really going to work on pushing the light for my next few. Here's my origianl and Goro's paint over side by side.



I really like what he did by pushing the warm lights and adding some atmosphere.

Thanks Goro!

And here's a few figures I liked from today.
