I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Curse of The Cat Skull...!!!!

Painting of the Day...Curse of The Cat Skull!!!
Cat Skull-Red Version(8x10 oil$100)

Well, the Cat Skull interrupted our nice day at the I said, a skull of ANYTHING is amazing to look at and paint. This one, I stuck some red cloth under it with alot of folds and did this little 8x10 painting in about 40 minutes. It's missing it's front tooth in this view, so you can see why they deemed it "imperfect". But one person's trash is another's treasure. I particularly like the broader strokes I did on this one, and the recessing shadows that are harder to paint than one might imagine. I am sure the skull will show up again in another painting.
