here is the last painting of the year. a quick two hour joint. i exaggerated her nose way too much. lol! honk honk!

here is more of this girl. i did the extra two hours, so i got another painting in there. this time i think i was a little more accurate with how she looks compared to the one froma few weeks ago.

i stayed an extra 2 hours. so i cranked out another portrait real quick. the first painting makes her look too young whiles the second painting makes her look older. i just took a ride on the failboat...

more of the square brush. i made her look older than she really is... my bad.

cool outfit on her. something different i guess. i'm trying to stick with the square brush thing and explore some more. the full body thing isn't so nice with it. a lot harder to deal with, but overall the entire process/painting was faster because of it.

just trying out more of the square brush stuff. i'm kinda digging it. it keeps me loose. although it probably looks better if its really tiny and you're squinting your eyes. like impressionism.

oh no not again. same chick, different style. i guess the benefit of being bored is trying something's pixel pushing.

i had a really crappy view. i'm not too fond of the profiles. oh well ... good practice i guess. i'm digging that brush though.

the flower in the hair made this fun. why are these first time, non-professional models better than the real ones? her mom was there to make sure nothing sketchy was going on. lol.

its the same chick from awhile back. not sure whats going on with the pouty lips thing. its looks way over done on my part, but i swear they were there.

Monday, September 1, 2008


trying stuff out here. i read this cool comic recently with art by Frazier Irving. really awesome stuff. great color in his work.

super skinny chick with really cool hair. apparently she is or used to be a "real" model, even though this is her first time doing this sort of modeling. i sat right behind the light/lamp (thus the black bar down the middle.) not the most ideal kind of lighting i guess...

i used a pretty standard PS brush. i like the fact that it looks like brush strokes. makes me feel like i'm really painting (sorta). ha.

nice outfit.

Friday, July 25, 2008


i got a bad spot so i couldn't see half her body.

Friday, July 18, 2008


i got some new photoshop brushes from a magazine. a bunch of spray paint looking things. she had a really cool pose.

Sunday, June 22, 2008


i think it turned out ok. custom brushes made the dress details easier.

here... this?

i think i'm rolling with this.... no seriously. unless you totally hate it. its kinda corny and overkill, but i think it fits. haha.

here this one

the other gown...


she kinda looks like she has a disease, but i like it.

here new version

here yo. this better? worse? pose ok? foot or no foot? don't mind the crap fonts. i'll figure something out.

Monday, June 2, 2008


uhhhhaaaaghhh!!!! not this chick again! i made her look old... Lol!

Wednesday, May 28, 2008


look i did a portrait for once. and what do you know. the proportions are all off. i'm so used to doing full bodies that i had a hard time on just the head. i don't have the usual things to compare proportions/relations to each other. like head to torso to hands to legs to shoulders to hips etc... but its fun to focus on one thing for a change. instead of rushing to get it all in.

here, kinda like this?

this is for someone else......
ok here this is what i'm thinking. just trying out stuff i guess. i'm not sure what to do with all the crap around it. i'll dig around for something though. like i was saying, looking generic. any ideas? let me know about the real mask.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


i tried doing a little of what i did last week, but with color. its very time consuming.

Thursday, May 15, 2008


yet another dude.... naked.

Saturday, April 26, 2008


this wasn't turning out the way i wanted. so i went and started messing around.

Sunday, April 20, 2008


hey i painted another dude. a flamin rockabilly latino dude.

Monday, April 14, 2008


last one before i went on vacation.


i had a really crap spot for the day. i tried to make the most of it.

here is my favorite punk rocker chick. for being a non professional model, she can hold a mean pose. she is way more interesting to paint than pretty much anyone. mainly because of her cool look. i always like painting her shoes too. ha.

alright no more week counting. i'm just throwing these up .
i finally got around to trying out the greyscale technique that i know a lot of digital painters use. its where they do the painting in black and white first to get the tones all good. then they bust out the colors on top. it makes a ton of sense to do it this way, but damn it sure does make things take longer. i sorta feel like i ended up painting this twice. i almost prefer it in greys though. its pretty straight forward technique. its eliminates a lot of the guessing, trial and error in starting with color early. good lesson.


so after 40 weeks of painting naked people, i finally made the time to paint something outside of my workshop class. and of all the damn things out there.... its Ned Kelly!!!! with some New Balance kicks on. wtf? yeah i know.
its the outlaw bushman Ned Kelly. i just love the spirit of Ned Kelly. i think when i was in Australia i got this funny, messed up impression of what i thought he was/should be like/act like. i'm pretty much sure its super far from the truth, but oh well. he's much cooler in my mind. haha.
