dusting off the ol' paint tools...

and by that i mean my Wacom tablet and stylus! see, i'm workin' on a children's book. i've been hired to do some illustrations for it, and there's one particular scene that i feel can best be captured by with a digital painting.

now normally if you'd ask, i'd say, "i can't paint to save my life!" however, ever since i've taken the amazing Painter class at CSUF (taught by the talented Cliff Cramp), i've found a way where i can be comfortable saying, "...yeah, i can paint." here i've implemented tons of technique i've gained under Cliff's instruction. though it's not a very elaborate painting, it was enough for today to serve as a short warm up to get back in some sort of goove or another. hopefully i'll get some good stuff goin' soon!

listening to:
"Two Much/Love Theme" by Michel Camilo & Tomatito
when i started this piece

whoa, cool scene! i like it. also appreciate the note about what music you were listening to when you created the art.
