Warrior Atop the Snow Covered Peak (Frazetta Tribute)

After much procrastination with posting here it is my Frazetta tribute piece entitled Warrior Atop the Snow Covered Peak. I have had this done for awhile and already have new sketches to show, so expect those soon.

I think the painting turned out well I really liked where my color palette went, and of course that is all thanks to great Frazetta. I think I will try and play around with these more colorful palettes in the future.

The judging for the gallery that I submitted this to should occur sometime in December, I will make sure to let everyone knows if it gets in the show.

Hopefully i did proper in honor of the great Frazetta.

Illuxcon Wrap Up

Illuxcon was the coolest event ever. I got so much stuff, met so many great artists, and saw lots of awesome presentations, had 34 magic cards signed and bought 10 art books.

I uploaded some pictures one is of myself, J. S Choi, Mike Burns, Brandon, and first ever Illie award winner Mark Zug. Who by the way can rock a guitar. They had a jam night there and it was awesome.

The next has me, J. S. Choi, Mark Nelson and Jon Schindehette. Apparently there was caution, for groping was occurring. But seriously though Mark was great I ended up doing an art book trade with him which was awesome. And Jon was a great guy he looked through my work and gave me some really positive feedback. Hopefully I will be working for him at some point (knocks on wood).

Another picture is of Greg Hildebrandt working on a painting of Smaug. A really cool thing had happened when I had the chance to talk to him. I asked him if he could sign some of my magic cards and he did cause he is a really cool guy. Then I gave him some of my postcards in return. And when he looked at my work he told me it was beautiful and asked ME if I would sign them for him. That was such a magnificent experience it was a huge highlight of the convention.

There are a million other stories of awesome that happened that weekend but I will not bore you with the details. I most definitely plan on going back next year. So on a final note.

Jeannie and Pat are amazing and I thank them and those who donated art to the scholarship so much. It is an experience I will treasure forever.

Frazetta Tribute DRAWING

I know I have been way past posting this but here it is the finished drawing to my Frazetta Tribute piece. The funny thing is I am already done with the painting so expect to see that posted soon. I have just been caught up by many things the past few weeks. In fact, I am currently posting this from the airport as I am waiting to head to Florida for my cousin's wedding.

As far as the drawing goes I reworked her anatomy a bit and played around with the gesture of the cats. I think it turned out well and the finish painting I am really proud of.

Expect to see the finish for this as well as some brand new stuff for my sci-fi/fantasy pin-up series, and some special new awesomeness.

That is all for now, as I am leaving on a jet plane.

P.S. a belated Happy Halloween I hope everyone had a good time.
