These were done a few months back for a scholarship with Sony Online Entertainment.  We had to develop a character and an environment that would fit into the Everquest 2 world.  I have never played EQ but I figured I would give it a try anyways.  I didn't win but I was notified of being a semi-finalist.  Congratulations to this years winner!

Modern Cyclops?

I figured I would try a creature challenge on CGhub.  The prompt was greek mythological creatures.  We were supposed to give them an up to date facelift.  I liked where it was going at first then became more bored with it as the time went on.  I really should have put something in there for scale....

Really quick one before bed...

A new painting... not as "finished" as my others.  It was an exercise turning a color photo reference into a black and white painting.  (We don't use black at our school so there is some color in there)

Plein Air

Here are some plein air painting recently done.  The one with the tower is a few weeks old and the other just dried.  Plein air painting is really fun but also very difficult.  I still have a long way to go before I can be pround of em'.  Getting contrast is probably the hardest part for me.

Both around 3 hours.  Oil on canvas.
