2 oil paintings

Well last night was productive. i spent some time and finished the humming bird painting for mum. It doesn't photograph well, so I'll have to wait for a good day to take it outside once its dry and attempt a real photo.
I think it turned out rather well. thankfully I was able to salvage some of my fucked up areas.
I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out overall.
The lighting on the branches turned out well, and i think the composition is pretty good as well.
I'm not used to painting realism. Not since highschool had I any desire to really. But this was mothers request, so this is what she got. Not saying its "realism". It looks more fantasy to me ;p 8"x24" cradled panel.

I spent a good 8 hours yesterday painting my second painting. From one of my own photographs of Hoodoo's from Dinosaur national park in Alberta. I had a few very nervous times painting this one, let me tell you! the grass i had painted as solid masses, and then painted the negative space. since I'm used to working light to dark with my markers, I thought that would be an easy thing to do! Not so much! HAHA! I kept confusing myself with what i was doing. Part of a learning curve I suppose.
I'm pretty happy overall with this painting as well. I'm going to wait until I get a decent picture before posting it anywhere for prints.
15"x12" Hand stretched 12duck canvas. (and I didnt stretch it, but the person who did, sucked. I might have to restretch)

there we go! oil paintings! Woot. Now I'm off to spend the day creating more art with Jammy, at her house!

Daquerminis - coming soon to paper near you :D

Well, here is the logo for what I will be doing in my spare time. Daqueran mini comics aka: Daquerminis. I'll do one per issue from now on and these will show up exclusively in the Daqueran print version only. This is one of the incentives to buy the print version instead of mooching free awesome comic from the online version only. Support your comic artists :)

Things going on, Daqueran

While I remind everyone, Daqueran is not mine, it is Kitty's comic and Kitty's comic alone, I have my own undertaking in Conflagration... I have been doing some things for Daqueran lately.

I completed the Exclusive content for Issue 2. A Daquer-mini comic, that will appear only in the print version. It will never ever show up anywhere else, expect the print version of Issue 2. So I guess its in your best interest to get that pre order in for Daqueran issue 2 eh? It's also got its own cute logo, that I will post online for promotion, but its as cute as can be. I'm finishing that one up today.

I've gotten a few emails lately, one about working on a Logo I did a while back (enhancing), and one about doing a sort of video talk about Toonboom to a school. We'll see how those go. i also have The Daquermini logo and Erica's Logos to do as well. so I'll go get on that :p
