The Beast

Finally, this beast of a painting is done! For some reason it was such a struggle to get it completed. I think my patience is just shot.

Here's a couple of weird angle shots for you guys!

I do not love painting backgrounds. Usually I am too excited over the main subject of a painting to fool with any elaborate background. Lately, though, I have been trying to put my characters into some kind of setting. I've spent a lot of time working on the background of my latest painting for the Hybrid Moments show in September. Most of the time was spent pondering over how I wanted the background to look, feel, and what techniques to try to make it interesting for me. Last night I put the finishing touches on the background and am quite pleased with the results. Actually, I'm excited! So, I thought I would share a few photos of the work in progress. Tonight I will be working on the character, Codzilla. I can't wait to get started! And yes, the final piece will include a beam of atomic fire breath. Please excuse the sub par photos.

Background early stage:

Completed background!

Flying Cats...

This painting was suppose to be included in the last installment of the Flying Cats show at The Flying Cat. Unfortunately, the gallery & boutique will be closed from now through most of August for some much needed renovations, so the exhibition has come to a close early. Because of this, I decided to share the new painting here. ENJOY! The title has yet to be decided. The painting can be found at The Flying Cat for a short time when the store opens back up, and will be available for purchase!

If you don't live in the area and are interested in the painting, just shoot me an email for pricing. (contact info back at my website)
