I had quite a few people ask to see what my work space looks like. Right now it’s pretty much just a sheet on the floor in our spare room. I was working on an easel for a bit but got tied of standing up so I moved to the floor. I’ve seen easels that you can sit at and I think I might invest in one of those soon. You can see my work area there on the left and lil’ Gabe’s work area next to me on the right. He has also taken an interest in painting and likes to work right along side me. His work tends to be less object oriented than mine, which I find inspiring.
I finished my Samus painting last night. I tired using all different kinds of things to paint this one besides brushes. I wanted to see what sorts of effects I could get with different things I had around the house. I used stuff like sponges of varying sizes, toothpicks and newspaper. Like I’ve said I still consider all of these paintings to be learning experiences. I feel like I just need to experiment for a while.
I really appreciate the mail asking about purchasing these but they still aren’t for sale and making prints wouldn’t work because these aren’t my characters. I don’t think Namco or Capcom would appreciate me making money off their IP. I am planning on selling my Jim Darkmagic painting for Child’s Play and that will happen some time in November. I’ve had a few people suggest a raffle as a way to sell the piece and I like the idea but need to figure out the logistics. I also appreciate the requests for commissions but I’m just not ready for that yet. Some day I’m sure I’ll be up to that challenge and when I am I’ll let you know here.
I’ve had a few requests for a gallery of my paintings so I went ahead and put them up on my deviantART page for now. That’s right I have a DA page, pretty soon I’ll be taking pictures of naked girls in bathtubs full of ice with ketchup smeared all over their wrists.
