Still Life Painting

I'm going to teach a digital still life painting class at the Academy next semester, and I really hope it runs. I think the class would be a lot of fun, and it would be a great way to learn to paint in Photoshop-fast- for students. I'm doing some pieces to get ready.

i love me some Dune, and a friend of mine started reading it and asked if i'd ever wanted to design a stillsuit. i love the designs of the original david lynch movie, and i think any subsequent designs should use them as a starting point. here's my first crack at it, looking forward to working on this more....

As promised...

...Here's my contribution for the first issue of the Wheel of Time Graphic novel! There will be three variant covers for issue 1-one from Seamas, one from the penciler, and this one from yours truly. I've already done 3 more covers for various other issues, but I haven't gotten permission to post those yet, so I guess you'll have to wait.....

Doc M

this weeks workshop confection. i just watched "watchmen"- i liked it. for those who don't like it, it coulda been worse. for instance, i'm a huge "dune" fan... just imagine rorschach with a sonic blaster gun yelling "aaahhhhh-CHA!"
and don't get me started on transformers, the prequels, indiana jones......yeah, zack did alright by me.
