Bad to the Bone

Here’s my latest “Bad” illustration! This is “Bad to the Bone” another addition to my “Bad” series of children (so far just girls) in cooperation with a monster like being. My working title, all of about 1 hour, was “Just Bad”. Well, obviously that didn’t stick. It was only my working title until I figured out what monster would be behind the little girl. This was drawn and painted in MyPaint and Photoshop using a Wacom Intuos 5 graphic tablet.


Lost Supper

This is my rendition of the LOST Supper. I had the idea to do such a painting after having finished watching the series again and during my researching and collecting references I discovered ABC Studios had photographed their version of the LOST Supper. So, I wasn’t sure about actually doing it since it had kind of already been done. However, a few friends helped convince me otherwise. I think the chosen characters and their placement makes sense and works well. I tried to keep a lot of the poses the same, or near the same, as in da Vinci’s Last Supper. Since da Vinci’s is in rather bad shape I also referred to Giovanni Rizzoli’s copy of Leonardo’s painting.


Photoshop Creative

Photoshop Creative magazine, issue 92, was published this month featuring my “Bad Monster” illustration in the Reader’s Gallery on page 8.

They contacted me on August 13th and asked if I would mind them publishing the “Bad Monster” painting. And of course I was like, “How much is it worth to you?”… and they didn’t reply any more…

=0P (just kidding)

No, seriously, I was excited! I prepared all the files, sent the copy release, and asked when it would be published and where I could purchase additional copies… and nothing. No Joke. I checked issue 90, waited for issue 91, and then I wrote… they replied and said it would be in the next month’s issue… and there it was. It was difficult to not share the news when I heard and actually wait for the magazine to come out… but I did it! Anyway, it’s cool!

 


Warhammer Invasion

This piece, titled “Invasion” is a sort of study or practice piece. I realized I needed to work on my ambient lighting in paintings to help bring across an emotion that might not be obvious within the action or focus of the painting. Mainly for the painting I started planning a couple of weeks ago. I will possibly do a couple more studies of a different nature because somethings I will be attempting are not really me or part of my style at all.
Invasion” was painted in MyPaint and Photoshop using a Wacom Intuos graphic tablet.


Bad Monster

Almost a month ago I posted a virtual ink on virtual paper drawing / sketch of a little girl scolding a monster for breaking her doll. When I made the post, I mentioned that it was also possible that I would eventually paint it. Well, I finally did, and here is is. I painted it in MyPaint using a Wacom Intuos 5 and signed and branded it in Photoshop.

 

The “Bad Monster” painting, along with the sketch, was featured in issue 92 of Photoshop Creative magazine.


the Latest Plague

“The Latest Plague” is an illustrative political cartoon. It, hopefully, illustrates the affects of corporations upon world finance and therefore the general population. It was digitally drawn in MyPaint with a Wacom Intuos 5 graphic tablet and signed and branded in Photoshop.


Bad Monster

This is a digital drawing, virtual ink on virtual paper… if you will, done in MyPaint and Photoshop using a Wacom graphic tablet. It is just one of those things that just flowed from the pen. It is possible it will later become a digital painting, but we’ll see.

The “Bad Monster” painting, along with the sketch, was featured in issue 92 of Photoshop Creative magazine.


Little Red Riding Hood Illustration

This illustration of the classic fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” was created in three different style variations as a study and practice piece. It was drawn, and painted, using a Wacom graphic tablet with MyPaint and Photoshop.


Bono

This caricature of Bono from U2 is one of three for a caricature series entitled “Monsters of Rock”. I made the sketch for this caricature about mid March and just now got around to actually painting it. The caricature itself was painted in MyPaint and the background, shadows, signature and branding was done in Photoshop.


Björk

Inadvertently I started two caricature series at the same time. But it was only because a competition came up where the subject just happened to be someone I had already chosen to be part of a future series. That “someone” being Björk. Björk is the first of three subjects for a caricature series entitled “Original Nightingales“.
