331 Sketches: Concept Background Eerie Forest

My friends are designing a small game with the main character as Mr. Death. This is one background my drew for the game (I was very unproductive...feeling guilty.) I will draw more background, starting from today, if time allows me.

334 Sketches

After a long break...

still trying to master the clouds
I need to do more landscape. Yesterday I borrowed a book from the library: LA/SF: A Sketchbook from California by Christian Schellewald. Now I'm motivated to do more landscape painting!

This is a book I really want, called MOONSHINE: DREAMWORKS ARTISTS...AFTER​ DARK!. It's a collection of artworks made by DreamWorks artists

Unfortunately there is no new edition currently so the only available copies are from other owners and the prices are way too high for me to buy

Ox-Bow 2012

While I disappeared for the past 3 week I was having great time at Ox-Bow, school of art and artists' residency.

I sat on the deck and fed bread to turtles everyday

The sunset is amazingly beautiful, especially if you canoe out into the lake

Those are the paintings I made during the first two weeks. I had a wonderful teacher Angela Dufresne. She really pushed me forward in my painting practices
This image is based on my first 356 sketches

This isn't the best painting but it is fruitful for me

during the session, we have to move the still life every 30 minutes 

made in studio, based on the painting above
