Severus Redux

Tonight I really wanted to practice some nice blends - here's an old speed paint that I've given a make-over. Objective was to get more painterly - specifically I'm trying to reconnect with Painter, something I used to be pretty good in but have slowly adopted PS as my main tool. Below, a close up of the arm. I really have to start using anatomical reference ...

And here's the old version, if you're interested in comparison ...  Black Emporer

How to trap a Monster Pirate: Scooby Concept.

Sometimes a game just doesn't go ahead, despite a great pitch ... this ghost of the deep unfortunately never saw the light of day in any finished form. It's a real shame when you know you could have done a fantastic job on a game.

Thought I'd air him out here for a while anyhow ... a demonic buccaneer falls into  Mystery Inc.'s home-made trap.

Hors d'oeuvres made me do it...

This is my forth day stuck inside on crutches after an operation to take a metal pin outa my leg. I'm going batshit crazy so I have no idea where this came from or what it means! Hors d'oeuvres ARE the devil though, trust me.
