Painting the Third!





This is the last of the three paintings I did during my internship. I had a really hard time getting the composition to work and was getting pretty frustrated because, though nearly all of the elements were already in place, it wasn't quite clicking. I wanted to get the piece scanned for the comic-con and ended up with 20 min left to resolve the painting and ended up popping the two red triangles which, I hope, pull the piece together. It's amazing to see what a big difference those two, seemingly, little elements make on the composition.

You're rapidly becoming something of a superstar. Every piece is better than the last with you. Come on now.

Really nice work, Cam. It's great to see how your work is changing an improving...and those 2 red shapes really do help pull it together! It's a really nice mix of realistic and abstract, but I keep wanting to know what the black and white scene at the top is....a tower of some sort? When does the accompanying sci-fi story for this come out? ;)

The value range and creative distance from the reference is bomb but the right eye is a little higher than the left one. but they are rendered awesome
