Name:
Location: New England, United States

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!)

Cold Enough for a Mammoth....

Bridge for a Mammoth(8x10 $SOLD!) Fun little mammoth study, with more cool enviroment around him. It's so cold, the thoughts of mammoths are not far away!!! This came out nicely textured as well, I was quite happy with it.

Fantastic! I've always had a fondness for cold blue color schemes. The little bit of warm color in the mammoths fur really strengthens the impact.

I wish more of the top artists in the SF and fantasy field would start a daily painting blog. Its great to see something besides still lifes of marbles and fruit from a daily painting blog.

David-Thanks! I intend to do a major Mammothian painting and, these are great work ups to that. This was alot of fun. More mammoths soon. And more "fantastical" works to come. I think I have found my space here. Even a few of my kind of mundane still lifes have found homes and will continue to do so.

Not to say I don't like still lifes. I do them myself fairly often. One just likes to see a little more variety in the world of daily painting blogs.

Another wonderful mammoth and a delightful ice age type background. Really gives you a feel for the life of such creatures.

I want to paint more and, bigger too. These work as little work ups for what I want to do on a bigger scale.
