Brushes!

People have been asking me about brushes, so I decided to clean up my set and let you guys download the brushes I use the most. (Some I have made, and some I have gotten from other artists, I'm constantly changing my brushes and customizing them, so its a never ending process for me.) Feel free to share with your friends and let me know what you think. Thanks!

CTNX



Jillian Altmeyer and I were at CTNX in LA last weekend. So much fun hanging out with friends, 
meeting my art heros, making new friends, doing art trades... Can't wait for next year!

Favorite Time of Year!

1. Values, leading the eye with light. 2. Mid to dark bace to start painting on. 3. Add in areas of light. 4. Sketch in the characters and add some details in point of interest. 5. Details and colors. 6. Finishing details. Added tools and scrap wood to help tell the story. Added more leaves on the right side of the boy for better composition.


Studies

Personal Work






A story I'm working on when I have a free sec.


Older Work


In looking at the work I did a year ago, I have learned so much about color and lighting. I made slight adjustments on these two paintings to fix the light for better composition and story telling.
