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!)

The Rainbow Dragon...

The Rainbow Dragon(sketch, 8x10,oils SOLD)
Primarily a sketch for a large 30x40 painting I started about six years ago. I got distracted and concerned that I had to be working in oils awhile in order to finish it. And I wanted to work on some color sketches and work ups for it before diving into such a massive painting. This is the year, for me, of doing some more personal work. This is based on a story I cooked up in my head about a dragon who can channel color from the the sky. His scales will turn the colors of the rainbow as well. But I wanted to get the primary lighting done and overall look established. Expect more "progress" reports on this one.

The concept is nice - if the rainbow is coming out of the dragon's back, it reminds me a lot of Barugon from War of the Monsters (aka Gamera vs. Barugon), who could shoot a rainbow beam from the spines on his back and destroy tanks - good old fun. :) I wish you the best in the progress of this work! As a fantasy artist myself who also does commission work (mostly dog portraits right now), it feels great to do something for yourself once in a while.

On another note, I really am inspired by your creature work and always enjoy seeing new and old works from you. :)
