DONE, for the most part

Here's the painting scanned and pretty much done. I think I'll play around with the colors a little in Photoshop, but I'm pretty happy with it as is. Oh, and I might add a splat of blood on the tongue, didn't have the courage to do that with real paint since it would have been a pain to take it out.

Switching to acrylic mode

I started working in acrylic this morning and am pleased with how it behaves over the watercolor. It's a great feeling when you discover a method that "clicks". I've been painting transparently for so long that a quick jump into the land of opaque paint just wasn't working for me.

more progress...

Starting with watercolor and will move into acrylic once the paper stops taking the paint as well.

Little Shop of Horrors drawing

I just finished the drawing for my next theater themed poster. I'm really excited about how this one is shaping up and I can't wait to start slapping down THIN layers of paint.

Oh, my friend Tyler was kind enough to pose for a headshot on this piece since everything I do looks suspiciously like me (aka "model numero uno").

Gotta call it done

I need to send this off because it's driving me crazy. I learned a TON doing this piece, I'm not fully happy but I'm eager to move onto the next painting. Comments welcome and appreciated on this one (as always, but more so on this one since I'm well out of my comfort zone here).
