Digital Painting

Ok so it's been a while. Sorry about that. I have some cool things coming up. Scanning in two rolls of 120 film right now and should be able to post them here in the next week or so.
In the meantime i have been really trying to get into this thing called speed painting. From what i can tell it is an exercise that illustrators and animators use to warm up and get going before they jump into there work. Its like working out a gesture painting with out having to let it dry.

Now i have been back and forth on To get Painter 11 or stay with Photoshop. The rotate canvas is the feature that has been the most coveted feature of Painter. Now PS CS4 has that!
Still dont have the funds to break out painter yet, but if some one out there wants to get rid of their copy holler at me and i'll gladly take it off your hands.

Here are a few names of those that i admire in the digital painting field.
Bobby Chui
Bjorn Hurri
BK Studio
Christian Alzmann
Lois van Baarie
David Colman
Chris Sasaki
Willie Real
Carlos Felipe Leon
I could go on for a while but i'll stop there.

Although Cory Godbey, Chris Koelle and Justin Gerard over at Portland Studios don't do very many straight digital pieces they surely spark my interest in the aspects of digital first.

All that to say i did my first digital painting. It's still is floating on the page a bit. That said it's my favorite mug. I look forward to doing more of these in the life ahead of me.
