Hey all-I've decided to use this blog as more of a final piece outlet, as I have another more community based sketchbook based over hea:
Mr Grumble
so updates will be less frequent, but perhaps, more meaningful.

quick self portrait done in photoshop yesterday...round 45 minutes...almost done...

....and there!

things might be kinda slow as of now...i'm finding myself getting rather selfish and just perusing countless art books and references rather than actually doing my own work...let's hope this has some benefits!

Not quite done yet...but here's the first day's worth of a large oil painting I'm doing for a historical figure competition: Hasan-I-Sabbah, the first assassin, also known as the old Man of the Mountains. Different approach to painting this time, really light layers, so the oils dried in like an hour! Now that I look back...gad that left hand...disgust! Need to pump the orange clouds on the right as well...but again, first day's work.
Now I wish I had good studio lights and a camera yet again!!!!
