Here is an updated picture of the painting I am working on titled “Predatory Stars in the Depths of the Universe”.
I just wanted to pass on that since I closed my Patreon page, I am in the process of opening up my artwork on deviantart to allow for the purchase of prints again. This is an easy way for me to get product into your hands because the website does all the printing and pays me a percentage on every sale. So, if you would like to support my artwork and get some unique prints for yourself or a friend, follow the link on the left of this page to my deviantart page.
Here is an update to the Star Cave painting I was working on with its new title of “Predatory Stars in the Depths of the Universe”. It was a surprise to me that this painting ended up going in this direction because I was only planning on playing with improving my nebula designs as an easy exercise. However, after working with the lower left portion of the nebula, I noticed that it reminded me of the jaws of an angler fish. Even more surprising, I had intended some time ago to work on a project like this for my sister who is an ocean nut.
I was going to try making a nebula that looked like an underwater coral scene and maybe some other ones that look like ocean fish. That had not been my intention on this painting but the look sparked my imagination, so I dove in. I hope to make this much more detailed and the lure, which is the bright blue star, less obvious. I want people to see the nebula and drink it in without realizing the over all idea. That way they get an expanded sense of awe when they figure out the larger meaning.
I have had a unique change of view on my digital painting title Star Cave along with a dramatic change in direction for the image. Let me get some more work done and I will post my progress along with the new title.
Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I have closed my Patreon page. I have not been able to post content there because of the new job taking up so much time; however, I look forward to rethinking how to bring more excitement and value to those who follow my work. One door has closed, somewhere another has opened. Stay tuned for updates.
P.S. There is a lot of content currently on this blog to check out now, please enjoy.
I have been wanting to post about this for several weeks now but life has just been getting in the way. I sent out for the above book I found out about at devianart.com under the artist under the tag name chasingartwork. I decided it was time to try supporting an artist as I would like to some day be supported so sent away for the book about two months ago.
I was beginning to worry about the order when it was a week or two beyond when it should have arrived and was about to send a message when it finally showed up. It could not have come at a better time. I had a particularly rough work day and came home late. Well, it wasn’t long before I was ripping the package open and enjoying my purchase. But the joy was not over yet because, just inside the cover, there was the poster of their interpretation of Aku, one of my favorite characters in Samurai Jack. Signed no less. I seriously love the color scheme of the poster as well as the artwork. If you get a chance, I recommend checking out their deviantart page.
