Graffito: Steampunk Graphics

I received an email from Graffito Publishing one night. They were wanting to use an older piece of artwork that I created for a Steampunk: Myths and Legends online contest for CGSociety.  I gladly, told them "Sure!" and signed authorization forms and went on my merry way. This fall, Steampunk Graphics was released and I honestly thought there would be cuts to many of the art they were able to use.

Pretty cool to open up the book to the Individual Works section and get a two page spread of your art. Never thought that was going to happen.

I want to thank Graffito Books for reaching out and wanting to use my art in their book.

Self Portrait-Step 1

The start of a self portrait in ArtRage. I spend a lot of hours behind the screen with my music cranked. A good representation of my life for the past 8 years.

This iPad painting started with a quick loose gestural drawing to get a general flow and layout. That followed with a reddish orange base and see if I can let some of that come up through the finished piece. We'll see how it ends up. I was definitely inspired by Post-Impressionist today ;)
