I was tidying and sorting through some stuff when I came across my portfolio from college! Some of the paintings are horrifically embarrassing but some of the images I still have some fond memories of making.
I am sharing my favorites as to not let these get lost into time. The originals are long gone and all I have are some printouts that magically haven’t been destroyed since 2005.
This one was always one of my favorites as I loved painting the animals at the time. This was a set of behemoths (green) in the hold of Noah’s ark with some friendly rhinos, a hippo, some weird looking elephants, and an ugly bug.
This skydiving dog got me a lot of praise at the time. I think it was the personality/face of the dog.
These last two were based on some stories from Aesop’s fables.
Received a sample of the Bob Ross portrait t-shirt I did for Palmer Cash. Looking good!
Here are a few attempts of r/sketchdaily’s eraser challenge. The challenge was to only use an eraser on a dark surface to create different values with in the picture. Not surprisingly I made up a couple of faces for the challenge. They look like they could be ghosts. It is pretty hard not to be tempted by other tools and adjust the proportions or smooth the gradients along the way. Shit how do I erase? Ah the paint tool. Not in the rules buddy.
Finished the Bob Ross portrait. Yay! This was fun! Pretty hard at some points but I am fairly happy with the result. Hopefully PalmerCash and the Ross estate will like it too.
With and without a human nose because it is fun.
Quick digital portrait from photo of mod Floonet
Here are some process shots of a digital painting I’m working on. They are portraits from a photo of some English dudes at a concert. I worked on this while home sick from work so hopefully can finish it this weekend. Maybe. It started to get muddy so gotta go back in there and clean it up.
Started my Bob Ross portrait. Going to change the orientation of the hair mountain, then refine the painting. Big ups to Nicole for the hair idea.
Hey! Check out the finished one! And thanks to PalmerCash for picking it up in their PBSTshirt line!
