All right, I’m ready to storm the fortress!

Yeah, this is everything I’m bringing.

No, we don’t need anything else. You have wings and my sword is ON FIRE. I think we’re good.

WIP of my first attempt at an acrylic painting! I’m liking it more than I expected—it’s easier to work with at large scale than gouache, and the fast drying time allows for more experimentation than oil. The difficulty of blending compared to either of those media is very apparent, but I can definitely see myself using acrylic to build an underpainting for oil in the future.

This piece was tough to photograph—the toughness of the board gives it a nice texture but it makes the photo look kind of scratchy. Still happy with the piece though! Gouache on board, 6x6”.

Getting ready to teach a watercolor workshop tomorrow with some warmups! Watercolor is harder than I remembered so this should be interesting 😛

Just picked up Xing: The Land Beyond on PS4 and am seriously loving these Myst vibes 🤩

Hey fediverse, I'm trying to think of some cool, obscure and friendly mythical creatures from existing folklore. The kind who could plausibly be friends of a young child. Anyone have any suggestions? :D

Quick digital painting inspired by a neighbor’s lamppost in the snow, which always makes me think of Narnia.

Study of a photo I took of the beagle channel, with the rowboat and the foreground basically made up. This was a fun one, and one of my better attempts at smooth blending in gouache.

That last Steven Universe episode has me feeling a lot of feelings. One of those is: more of Connie and her awesome new sword please.

Seascape in gouache. Really loving this aquabord, the roughness of the surface makes it easier to blend colors smoothly. And I find I work better with the small size, I don’t fuss too much over the details.

A little She-Ra fan art—really enjoyed the new series so far, especially the relationship between these two. Where’s that season 2 announcement, Netflix? 😃

Busting out the airbrush again! My wife said this looks like Steven Universe fan art, which wasn’t intentional but I’m having a hard time arguing with.

A little winter landscape in gouache. This was going to be a study for a larger oil painting but I kinda like it as is 😊

This was done on 6x6 aquaboard, which I’m really loving for water-based paints! Not too expensive and absolutely no buckling or distorting.

Finished another page for my comic about my ongoing misadventures with raccoons in my back yard. Still bad at the suburbs!

My Bob Rossing has produced a finished painting! I’m happy with this one 😀 Some facts:
- Oil on canvas
- 18 x 24 in
- My 2nd finished oil painting ever
- Not actually based on a Bob Ross video
- Not the Bob Ross method (he does wet on wet, this is mostly wet on dry)
- Loosely based on a bad photo I took of a print in a doctor’s office
- The cloud shadows on the foreground trees were a happy accident
- Taking pics of shiny oil paintings is hard
