And some rough untouched comic pages from the highly anticipated first issue

Another painting

Something I started last week.

Partly inspired by Caravaggio and paintings of religious icons.

Last week's painting session

Last week I barely knew how to paint. Then I had a realisation when I heard that it's simply light and shadows. I'd already heard this a number of times but I finally understood it for some reason. You don't set out to paint a 3-dimensional object, rather you paint light and darkness to suggest the object. well, that's the mentality I've taken on board at least.

I usually find learning new skills frustrating, but last week was so damn exciting. This is a medium which i've wanted to convey through for as long as I can remember. I've just never given myself the patience to understand how it's done. But now is an exciting time. hooray for colour values

this was one of 4 commissioned pieces. This one turned out the best I think.

Also I have Feng Zhu to thank for a lot of the principals I've been taking on. His tutorial videos have taught me a lot of things I already know, but I always forget to consider. well worth checking out:

Profile studies

The last couple of days I've been trying to concentrate on understanding the human profile. It's fascinating and full of crazy details. It's amazing with life drawing what difference a single line or tweak can make. bloody crazy.
