Two portraits: Top one I did today to beef up my portfolio for an upcoming submission deadline. The second is a portrait which was used on the cover art I completed for my mother's soon-to-be-released novel "Return of the Heroine"

Printed 24" by 12.5"
As with a large amount of my work, this picture was inspired and based upon my current "psychological weather" and how I feel about where I am at this point in my life's journey. This character has weathered and overcome many challenges, and is leaving his present vessel to approach, on foot, the shores of new and perhaps rediscovered territory.
In terms of technique, alot of thought went into composition with this one. I spent a generous deal of time on the thumbnailing and composition stage before moving on with the drawing. When it came to the painting, a sense of a shroud of atmosphere was very important to me. What I kept in mind constantly was the method of limiting information in my forms as they receded into the distance. The further away in the picture that an object is, the more efficient and more sparing you must be with your information.
I will post worthy process work in the very near future.

Painted this portrait of the main engineer guy from the film Prometheus. Done from a screenshot in about 2.5 hours. Below is a splash page of a bunch of poses I've drawn over the past year or so. Presented it at the first DPSC (Digital Paint and Sketch Club) meeting of the year last friday. The demo went great, and I look forward to doing it once again in the future.
