I have done numerous commissioned portraits (people and animals) both traditional and digital. Here is another one that I did for a good friend in January. Photos I was given as reference (see images below). I used some new digital watercolor brushes that have a real nice feel on this one. (Photoshop)

Red Flames

Red_Flames_W

A smiling human skull, flames, bugged out eyes and a little grunge just seemed like a good mix for this digital painting! My rough idea sketch for composition (see image below top left). I used a charcoal brush (see image below top right) from GrutBrushes.com to create the rough edged feel to the skull and flames. The reference for the skull (see images below bottom) came from a 3D model. (Photoshop/Keyshot/Maya)

Vintage Detroit Iron

Vintage_Detroit_Iron_WMy interest in Hotrods and Customs started in the mid 90’s after illustrating a couple of Posters (traditional illustration) for the Detroit Autorama. The reference (see image below left) is one from my collection of photos from the Woodward Dream Cruise. The distressed painted metal (see image below right) was the starting point for the background texture. (Photoshop)

Merry Christmas

Merry_Christmas_Lights_WJust having a little illustrative fun with a strand of curling multicolor Christmas lights. Happy Holidays 2014! My rough idea and color sketch (see image below top). The Christmas lights, snowflakes and type were created using Illustrator (see image below right and left). The texture (see image below middle) came from a bad photocopy. (Photoshop/Illustrator)
