Cute and mean at the same time. Yowza!
A goofy CHOW submission ( Steampunk Aphrodite ), and a genie for the Disney Redesign challenge. Totally different painting approaches, obviously.
Hooray for variety!

Jafar Reimagined

This isn't really finished, but I'm not planning on going much further with it. Might as well throw it up here - this was an exploratory painting for the Disney Redesign challenge over on CGHub, but I was having more fun painting the genie, so I stuck with that and left this by the roadside. Still, it was sort of neat.

Been working on trying to put together an actual scene that tells some sort of story, as opposed to some guy in space with no context, which has been fun.

Warrior of Aries

Here's my CHOW submission for this week - I learned a ton with this one, and spent considerably more time developing it than previous CHOW submissions.  This week my focus was on painterliness and light, and use of color - trying to evoke the feel of some classic oil and acrylic painted fantasy art ( Frazetta, Easley, Elmore, etc. ).  I had lots of missteps and adjustments along the way, but it was a really enjoyable process overall.
