Balloon with text (large)

More update:

Balloon 1st pass

Another update. Having trouble composing the text and picking a palette for it. Probably I will just get a font tomorrow night and start laying it out more professionally.

Values of my poster as I add more detail

Here's a value study of my flying balloon boats. They will be rusty colourful metals with slightly transparent paddles or sails depending on what i think looks better at that point. :)

Hidden Truths

The news is travelling fast. For anyone who doesn't already know I've been promoted to a senior artist. This goes hand in hand with my recent increase in responsibilities as an art director's assistant for parts of the game we're working on. Anyway enough bragging, let's just say I'm really happy at work at the moment (except for some tech issues we're having this milestone ;)

Anyway here is the final painting I will be sending to Stephen Murphy this weekend as promised.
Tell me what you think. Streling Hudson over on VLP actually followed my composition completely without any coersion. That makes me proud. :)

So here you go. And Stephen, take care of this painting I've grown fond of it.

PS This photo sucks. Better one tomorrow. I'll probably swap it here in this post ;)

Poster Update

So I've been sick for a while. Sorry for anyone who is following me and looking for updates.

I've been out of action due to intense migraines. last week I managed to get rid of the headaches by doing nothing at home. While it was relaxing and I feel good it's time to get back to work. This weekend I finished Stephen Murphy's 40 inch abstract painting and I started ideation on another painting.

I'll post a good quality picture beefore I send it off in case something happens along the way.

Digitally I am very far behind in my course (2 weeks) but I hope to catch up on that soon. Here is the latest colour version of my painting. Once I get the ok from TAD I will go ahead and detail it out and make some nice text instead of the ugly placeholders I have here.

Thanks for following. I will post the updated Stephen Murphy picture tomorrow and some reference grabs for my next painting.
