Hello everyone, Here is a painting I did during our Friday plein air session. It was overcast which I have never painted before, which was a lot of fun. Took it into photoshop to see where I want to take it next traditionally. Hopefully I can make it come close to this lol. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I will have some fun character stuff up soon! Hopefully with process shots and video. Cheers

Hello Everyone! This Friday the dungeon team and I set out for some more plein air painting. This is how cool my work is, I got to go to the beach, relax with a bunch of friends while we paint. It's a lot of fun, and I feel my oils getting better I think. Anyway, I feel like I'm learning a lot about color and light from doing these paintings, and recommend going out and doing some painting from life even if you feel like you suck at it. Cause I do, and I'm still having fun! Cheers till next time. Cole

Hello! The dungeon team have been doing some lunch painting/sketching sessions every week. Here is a painting I started at lunch time and finished with digital. I have been learning a great deal from going out and painting from life, I highly recommend it if you can afford the equipment lol. Cause it can be quite expensive. Till next time!

Hello Everyone, This week I am working on a little side project to try to improve my 3d skills along with my 2d. Me and a friend are going to be doing a series of concepts and turnarounds into full 3d textured models over the next....probably forever lol. Yesterday we went to Barnes and Noble to get some ideas going. I am thinking of making a guy who controls ravens and is used as a spy for the empire he is a part of. Or maybe each crow does a different thing. Not sure yet. But basically we did some studies yesterday and soon will be doing some character illustrations. Here is what I was thinking for the look of the crows. I saw one kind of bird that was half grey and half blue, really beautiful, then just took the body of a crow to that same color scheme. So did some quick pen sketches of the general look of them, and a fast sketch of maybe what the guy would look like. Will do a couple different thumbs and roughs and see where it goes. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
