bgviper, your characters are just fantastic and your journal is most cool. What is going to happen to the clay piece?

cheers for the comment! the clay is gonna worked on a little more and than perhaps if i like it, i mold it and make a resin copy. Reuse the clay for another piece.

Ooooh! Love how organized your "pages" are :)

Oh wow!!! These are absolutely amazing! And it looks so great laid out like this as a book. What program do you use to produce this digital "journal"?

cheers eyepaint and otherworlder!
@otherworlder i just use plain old photoshop to assemble the digital pages. For painting i use the programs Photoshop, Corel Painter, Sketchbook, Krita and Mischief.

Nice work, I like most of your work but I think your cartoon creatures are wild and hilarious. Keep them coming.:thumbsup:

Your studies are so accomplished and interesting. Do you do anything special to the paper for the ones where you use oil paints?
08-31-2017, 03:51 PM
cheers Greg, i will keep the cartoony fellas coming
scc1989 - it's mostly oil/acrylic paint paper - but when i want to render in oils fast , i gesso my own paper with highly absorbent gesso - this way one can go on an render faster then with non absorbent gesso.
i also gesso my watercolour paper journals so i can paint with oils in it.

So uterly beautiful, and ancient looking . Wonderful work, and great talent.

PS - Good idea of presenting your oil sketches, and sanguines (or red coloured pencil) by electronically inserting them on an old book background.
It enhances them.
09-02-2017, 02:27 PM
These look lovely. Very detailed, and yet they keep that nice sketchy quality.
09-12-2017, 05:34 PM
Love the sketches as well as your oils. Nicely done!
