This is a Post

The First image is my progress on the painting I've been working on based on the final drawing that I had posted before. I'm learning a lot from doing certain painting exercises and I think its helping with this painting. We progress a lot in life and over the past year my girlfriend has helped me realize a lot about myself and my artwork.  Its a never ending learning process. I hope to take what I've learned from everything and move forward with it to make better artwork in the near and distant future.

 Here is a test painting exercise I worked on. It helped me to understand a bit more about fire and just paint in general.

And these bottom two images are some scenery sketches that I tried out. Turns out that paint sketching scenery is a bit more difficult than I first imagined. I'll keep working on it tho.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, Keep Drawing! :)

Dragons in a Fantasy Land

 I've been busy with a bunch of things. I'm still making (be it slow) progress on a scenery painting that I have posted a few progress shots on already. On top of that I'm in the process of trying to secure a commission from one of my co-workers. He likes dragons, I like to draw dragons. So I posted the quick sketches before. He picked one that he liked but I wanted to do another, so I'm working on 2 of the dragon drawings. The top one is a completed sketch.

This sketch above is in its work towards a final sketch but isn't finished just yet.

And here (above) we have the landscape painting I've been working on. As you can see its a fantasy landscape. I don't do a lot of landscape paintings so it has been a slow progress for me making sure all the details are accurate. As it is, I still need to tone down the intensity of the green on the front-most mountain, beyond putting in more details. Thats what i've got for now.

Until next time, Keep on drawing!
