Horse Paint

This painting was another fun one, but very challenging.  When the image came up of what I was going to work with, I was very excited.  A nice action shot, lots of intense lighting, and a great opportunity to push myself.  This one pushed back though.  I spent a lot more time on it then my tiger paint, but had just as much fun, and really tried to capture the lighting as close to the original as possible.  I learned a lot from this piece, and hope I can keep doing more of these.  Hope you Enjoy!

Tiger Paint

Between work and teaching I have been very busy in the past few months.  I'm still sketching away almost every night, and of course animating all day.  The one thing that I have really wanted to start doing is working with colour.  This is a quick paint in photoshop that I did in about 20 minutes.  It was so much fun to work with colour in a gestural free way.  I'm hoping to do more of these in the future so I can improve on both my drawing, but also my colour theory.  Hope you enjoy!
