This character face study was drawn with watercolor, pen, marker, and crayon.
This blue face with red eyes was a striking image to see staring back at me when I finished the drawing. I was concentrating so hard on energetic line work that I didn’t step back to view the entire drawing until the end. Here is a detail.

This portrait / character study was created with watercolor, markers, pens, and crayon.
Here is a close up detail of the face. I think I like the close up details more than the full size images. For one, the detail is better, and the compositions are more eye catching too.

I just wanted to post that I’ll be taking a new approach to this art blog. Instead of increasing the number of existing art galleries on the site, I’m going to post daily sketches and completed art works here in the blog. Basically it’s just easier to maintain and feels like a more organic and consistent method of publishing my art.
Existing blog entries will be categorized in a new section entitled “Out In the World of Art“, and the new posts will begin soon. Enjoy.
The “Out In the World of Art” section features blog entries that point out areas of interest in the world of Art.
I have always been fascinated with Concept Art. The level of artistic expertise one must have to achieve quality work and actually get paid to draw is astounding. There are many people who dream of achieving this goal, but few succeed. One resource to help get you there is a website called ConceptArt.org. It’s chock full of inspiration, ideas, and the community you’ll need to get you started in your career of being a concept artist. They even have regular concept art workshops with industry professionals.

Bob Ross was my first impetus for buying oil paints and painting a series of landscape paintings along with his television show. His personality and approach to oil painting made it easier for me to understand and paint something that actually made me feel proud of myself.

The beinArt Surreal Art Collective is worth a look for anybody interested in surrealist art, abstract surrealism, or ideas in image form that go beyond conventional ways of thinking. The herd instinct and mentality that permeates society is cast off or interpreted in a unique way that surrealism relishes in exploring. This exemplary showcase of surrealist artists is stunning, and one would be hard pressed to find a more exotic collection of unique images brought together by so many artists in one place.

One of the most original and innovative artists I have ever seen is a kinetic sculpture artist from Holland named Theo Jansen. His thoughts about using genetic algorithms to create a new nature of roaming artificial life on the beach make for an interesting topic of conversation. Wired Magazine even has an article about Theo’s mechanical sculptures, and the pictures and videos of the beach animals are a unique site to behold.

There was a recent article submitted to Digg.com about a relatively unknown artist’s interpretation of The Simpsons and Futurama characters drawn in an anime style. The works of art were met with thunderous adoration from fans and artists alike, and it seems Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, enjoyed viewing the art as well.
The artist, Nina Sachie Matsumoto, became an online celebrity within a few days and has now been hired by Matt Groening’s comic book company, Bongo Comics.
