Bob's ART du Jour

Hi, I'm Bob Eggleton and this is my painting and "life in general blog" but mostly paintings. Usually they're for sale. Anyway, if you like something contact me at and ENJOY!!

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!)

Dragon's Ring Demo

Here's the pencil-in start of the painting. It was fairly large at 24x36 inches.

After pencilling it in, I block in the colors in oils. I tend to like to use the base colors of what I will be using for the detail work. This painting came together pretty fast here. I like to leave pencil lines showing.

Now, I start the detailing in of things. All this goes fairly easy and I always start with the head and eyes, as that defines the rest of the beast... the finish will follow...

You should have saved yourself a ton of work, Bob, and painted the scene in foggy silhouette, in homage to "Beast From 20,000 Fathoms." At least, that's the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the image.

I love these types of posts - it's great to get a look behind the curtain to see how the composition develops.
