I joined the Spitpainting group on Facebook, and I have to say, it has been the single greatest source of motivation and inspiration for me in a long while. The group's premise is very basic: 1.) 30 minute time limit to finish your painting 2.) NO phototextures whatsoever. New topics are posted daily, and they are generally very vague.
Here are a few of the paintings I submitted to the group!
It's been awhile since I updated, but don't worry, I'm still painting! Mostly freelance stuff though... it's difficult to find time to paint for myself. One of my commissions happens to be an Octopus, and I thought that was too good of an opportunity not to do my own octopus study on National Octopus Day (October 8)!
Here are the works I produced for my personal project, " In Awe. " It's a story about a boy and his animal companion, and they explore a world filled with ancient mystery and wonder. I will definitely spend more time to flesh this out, and try to improve my ability to design and paint. Thanks for visiting!
