So here’s something I think is going to be totally awesome. Rick Cantu is using a picture I did back in 2014 and turning it into a 3-D lighted sculpture. I love it. Ha! The brass tube front legs will be where he runs… Continue Reading “Ole PumkinHead”
Bob decided it would probably be a whole lot easier to forage for mushrooms at his local grocery store.
I’ve been known to play a game or two on my phone when no one is looking. I’ve also been known to draw the characters in the games that I am playing on my phone when no one is looking. This is Gillie The… Continue Reading “Dewport Guard”
I’m old school when it comes to drawing. I still enjoy using a pencil and paper, but I love to apply color digitally. I’ve been posting 30 second videos on Instagram lately of some quick color sketchbook stuff I’ve been doing with the Procreate… Continue Reading “Importing Images Into Procreate”
I play a game called Elder Scrolls Online where I occasionally have to save the world from infestations of dragons, monsters and various other unsavory creatures. One of the things I like about the game is it allows you to construct your own custom… Continue Reading “Elder Scrolls Online”
I was working on a “LIZARD OF OZ” job and whenever there is high concept involved I have to do a LOT of fast, throwaway sketches to figure things out. Most of these quick ideas never see the light of day… but there was… Continue Reading “Painting Ms. Dorothy”
I threw a little color onto a referee that was in my sketchbook.
Back in 2011, my very first post on this blog was my take on Frank Frazetta’s Silver Warrior illustration. A fellow emailed me yesterday and asked if I would make this available for purchase in my ImageKind Shop, so I loaded it up for him. As a… Continue Reading “Silver Weasel Warrior 2.0”
I don’t often get asked to do background scenery… well… to put it another way… I have NEVER been asked to do background scenery, so I was pretty nervous when I was tasked with developing six backgrounds for a quirky board game, tight focus, pan through film shot…… Continue Reading “you want me to do WHAT??”
I’ve been playing a quirky little turn-based strategy game on my iPad that pits teams of dwarves, elves, rats, and miscellaneous unidentifiable creatures against one another on a football field. One of the neat things about the game is the ability to customize your team and my… Continue Reading “Playing Some Weird iPad Football”
Last Sunday the pastor’s sermon was entitled “RELEASE THE HURT” so I immediately started my sermon notes with a pixie and a viking getting ready to “release the hurt” on somebody. Much to my surprise, the sermon went in a totally different direction than I had envisioned.… Continue Reading “Release The Hurt”
Once a year I seem to go on a rant about the iPad and how I wish it were a better device for mobile digital painting. All I’m wanting to do is collapse into a chair in my living room in front of a football… Continue Reading “My Annual Ipad Digital Painting Rant”
For several days last week, the sun made a rare appearance at our house. I decided winter was officially over and proceeded to take down my snow fence and store it for summer. As I look out my front door today, I think I… Continue Reading “Overly Optimistic”
When I have time to kill, I will occasionally fire up the iPad and play a game or two… and my favorite kind are turn based strategy. The developers of the game I am playing right now ( HeavenStrike Rivals ) are currently running a promotion and awarding game bonus to… Continue Reading “Turn Based Strategy Games”
It has been a long, Nordic winter here in northeastern Indiana… but the sun is out today and it gives me hope that snow season is almost over. One last viking made an appearance on my drawing board on his way out of town.
