Untitled Drawing

Graphite on Bristol
11 x 14

Okay, so here is another sample for my upcoming website. Once again, a general outline, then blocking in the colors, then rendering.

Again, keeping to one figure at a time to stay productive.

Almost done...

Finished, thank God. Total working time was roughly 20-25 hours. I might go back and add the snow, but first I'll have to muster up the motivation.

This piece is unfinished. I was working on Adobe Illustrator when it suddenly expired my trial use. I planned on really developing the background; maybe adding interweaving tubes attached to the figure's body. Maybe one day, when I actually get the program, I can finish it.

So I'm starting a business and I want to have samples of my process to display on the website. This photo was given to me by a friend.
I always start with establishing the contours and the darkest values. If you start with the darkest, you can use it as a reference point for the other values and saturation levels.
After I have established the darkest values, I move on to the middle ranges. It isn't supposed to look pretty at this stage - this is the underlying structure of the painting.
The next and longest phase is rendering. I try to do one apple at a time to stay focused and productive.
After a very long seven hours, the apples are finally rendered.
The last touches - the water ripples around the apples. Fin!

snowboard ideas

There is this company called Artic Love ( that sells snowboard skins and uses a portion of the profit to donate to various charities. It seems like an awesome company. They could potentially accept some of my designs if they like them. Here is my first try at some of the ideas I had. Keep in mind that it isn't finished.
