Effie Trinket Mockingjay inspired look/portrait for a time-lapse video.

Here is a quick inspired painting I created (for a time-lapse painting video) of Effie Trinket with a custom Mockingjay look I created for her. While I always enjoyed her crazy and fabulous Capitol looks, for this painting I wanted to create a darker look to show her likely support for the uprising. The blood splatter across her face symbolizes both the uprising as well as the part she played as a propaganda tool for the Capitol in the annual Hunger Games. Since I do love her colorful looks too, however, I may consider doing another, and much lighter painting of her in the future as well. We probably won't see her looking anything like this in the film but I thought it would be interesting to create a look like this for her. 

Really enjoyed Mockinjay but wow it's going to be hard to wait for part 2 now. Definitely as great as the other two films but much darker.

I apologize for all of the zooming in and out throughout the video, I zoom in and out a lot during my workflow and editing all of this out would be a nightmare for me. 

 Anyway, hope you all enjoy it!

Hey everyone! 

Here is a painting I recently finished for my solo exhibition! She is an alien humanoid-plant hybrid from another planet similar to earth in another distant galaxy.

New finished painting!

Hey everyone!

Finally got around to finishing this one. Started it I think over a year ago and have been working on quite a few different paintings at the same time including this one. Have some extra free time this week and hope to finish some of the others as well. Hope you all like it and thanks for your visit!

New humanoid alien work in progress preview!

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since my last post due to the fact that I've been busy with a new job and life but also because I've been actually working on several paintings at the same time - some of which will be for a solo exhibition that I will have at the Kelied gallery in September which will have a celestial/sci fi theme (will post an update about this again in the future). This work in progress is a preview of one of them that I'm currently working on - she is a type of humanoid alien creature. I love painting humanoid alien type characters as I think they are beautiful and interesting to paint. There are so many possible directions to go in with the design and I find that a lot of fun.

I would also like to mention that I'm planning to perhaps move this blog to my website in the future and will try and post updates more often.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by! :)

Little preview of artwork for a new Kickstarter project!

I feel badly that I haven't posted any updates here for a while so I thought I'd post a little preview of a new project I've been working on for a Kickstarter campaign - I hope to launch it within a month or two. These previews are still a work in progress but I'm pretty happy with the way the artwork and process is coming along.

Will post more updates soon.

Thanks for your visit! :)

Humanoid Alien ruler/leader/deity work in progress!

Update: Just finished this one! You can check it out here:

Here is yet another (of many works-in-progress) that I have been working on a lot lately and trying to finish. Still quite a lot of work I want to put into it - haven't completely decided what to do with the background yet or the cat-like creature. So far I am pretty happy with the way it is coming along, though there are a few things that I may change.

She is a humanoid alien ruler/leader/deity from another world which is very similar to Earth.

I know that in reality other alien life in the universe would probable be a lot more organic and different and perhaps mostly microbial on other terrestrial worlds but I find humanoid alien creatures beautiful and fascinating and this is fantasy so I had fun. Who knows perhaps there are humanoid creatures like this out there somewhere. Anything is possible! :)
