ILL 400 Digital Painting with Corel Painter...HELLS YEAH

It is official, my digital painting class is a go. I will be teaching an illustration class at Syracuse University that focuses on digital painting. The class will be similar to that of an illustration class just with the assignments being done in Painter.

The class will meet Friday mornings starting this fall semester. I am quite excited about it and I can not wait to start teaching.

I also attached a copy of the poster I made to promote the class. It shows some of the process steps to my Zombie Cannon piece.

A Sssssimple Ssssssketch.

I have been meaning to post this sketch for awhile now but life has been so hectic I have only just now got around to it. It is the sketch for my second pin-up piece my serpent mistress. The process for this piece is much further along than this post would make it seem. I have already finished the final drawing and now I am working on some value and color roughs.

As soon as I get the finished drawing scanned in I will make sure to post it. A bit sooner than this one I hope.

I have been working on some other projects as well not only my pin-up series. Expect to see a new sketch for quite an epic piece soon.

Well, that is all for now, until later.

At Donato's Studio

I recently took a trip to NYC with some friends to visit the sci-fi/fantasy illustrator Donato at his studio in Brooklyn. He shared some of his knowledge, we got to watch him work, and even got some great posters to take with us. Some of the pics I uploaded were; a group shot of us (top), Donato working on his latest illustration commission (middle), and Donato when he was lecturing about color, composition, and how he first got into the business (bottom).

Donato is a great artist and a very welcoming guy. If you ever get the chance to meet him I highly recommend it.

Until next time.
