Painting again (as usual.....) [May. 11th, 2005|03:36 pm]

[mood |creativecreative]

I'm painting!

I've got several things going on - a commission, another custom, and a new original. I'm just starting the new original now - you can watch me HERE!

I found some old photos at my dad's house when we were visiting up in Kansas CIty - it had some photographs of my old artwork (most of which is no longer with me, either having been damaged in the fire, or stolen when my last house was burglarized back in KC). It was neat to see a lot of it again - stuff I had forgotten all about. I'm going to incorporate some aspects of this one (from when I was in high school!) Clicky Here into the new painting I'm working on now. Ought to be interesting....

I might grab a bite to eat, and then I will begin =)

I just checked out your website-very nice! You have a great eye for color and the renderings are immaculate!
Do you always paint in acrylic or are some in oil also?

Lol - could be! "Alien" was the first movie I ever saw - it was at a drive-in in 1979. I was a couple of months old, hehe.

I Had an Idea for you

First off i absolutely love your work, i love the way everything seems almost real, you have a real knack for shading and hughlighting. your creatures are flawless. I see how you have them with alot of merchandise and things, well if you want to spread the word of your work, u know that ppl are mad crazy into avatars these days, well i found this site where you can make your own south park characters and to use them as avatars, i was thinking maybe you should do that with your faeries, because once someone sees one they want to know where to get one or where to make one ??

here is the web address if you are interested check it out, maybe you could talk to the guy and he could make you the program for it ?

Re: I Had an Idea for you

Thank you so much!

That is a neat website!

I'm pretty particular about icons and avatars thought for copyright reasons. I do have some official icons for fans to use on my website here: http://www.strangeling.com/icons.html

I'll probably make some more soon =)

Jasmine, Yuck eek those things do remind me of the critter in the movie Alien, how about drawing one with a top hat and cane like the dancing one in the movie only joking.... but they give me the creeps.Sharon
