Mock Turtle head sculpt WIP

Been playing with this in the MICA class after I've been bugging the students too much and they just need to work.
It's pretty early.

Girl Vs. The Sea

I'm down in rainy, hurricane-prone Florida right now, but I still managed to whip up a piece for the VS show. I had a lot of fun with this!

Thursday, June 4, 2009

Here's a teaser from an upcoming gallery show called VS. that I'm participating in with various other artists.

Recent oil painting for Vs show

This was a different kind of piece for me, but I enjoyed it. It's 30" x 40".

Jab Strong Fierce

This was done for the Jab Strong Fierce show at the Nucleus Gallery. It was a tribute show for the release of the new Street Fighter IV game. This piece depicts Dhalsim vs. Fei Long. (18 x 24, watercolor and acrylic)

I wasn't able to make it out to L.A. for the show, but there are a lot of videos and blogs out there that documented the opening. Looked like a fun time.

Did this guy last week for an activity at an art forum. The rules were to sculpt a bust of any Street Fighter character.

Tshirt stuff

Update: This shirt is now for sale on! It got third place in the competition, yay! You can see the details and look at the shirt here.

Been drawing t-shirt designs lately for fun. It's fun working with a limited palette. Above: theme is "heartbreak." Below: theme is "Myths/Legends." Learning what makes a good shirt design :O

Recent oil paintings

I'm having a show with a ceramics artist, Rob Bilek, who use to work at BHG as an art intern. I really wanted to use the opportunity to push myself to do some new paintings, so over break I started five canvases. The gallery specifically asked for Antarctic work, so that's what I went with, and it was nice to return to that theme. There are five new ones below and the last one is an old one I updated. These range from 24 inches across to 40, so they're a little big for what I usually do, then there were a handful of smaller, older paintings I included in the show.

And the show card (my non-Graphic design design):

I finally had some time to work on this a bit more. The new deadline is Sunday. If you have any suggestions let me know before then. Thanks.

Don Quixote Steam Punk

I was talking to Young today about the cgtalk contest so I thought I'd post an in-progress image. So much to do :) Any crits would be much appreciated.

Blue Giant 2.0

I'm like Lucas and Spielberg the way I keep re-doing my oldies! But they're considered masters at what they do, and I'm not where I wanna be yet. Well, at least in my case I think there's a significant step up from before. To think, less than 6 months ago I was satisfied with leaving this image here

Silly me. Thanks to everyone who helped me out on this one. Invaluble.

First post :O

Had some free time between school and work to draw a quick-ish lady. Was watching a lot of Heroes and playing a lot of Mirror's Edge, which probably inspired the style of this image~

ps: My name is Helen. I'm a new art intern, and this is my first post!

Marsh painting finished

I finished this one up last night. The bottom one is the final one; the two above are the two previous nights' work. I learn a lot by looking at where I've come from in a piece (oftentimes I realize I've gone too far) so I put this together to compare them.
It's been too long since I've touched canvas, but it felt really good. I don't think I'll ever get tired of experimenting with color and brushwork, or learn enough where I think I don't have something to new to experience from every inch of a piece.

Gorgon Blood

Here is a rework of an oldie, im pretty glad i revised it. I think works a lot better now in several ways, and i got to add a lizard! Lizards are just sweet. Thanks for lookin'.


I started messing around with an image for my Don Quixote Steampunk image. It's pretty rough as I try to figure out what to do next. And I just started playing Dead Space so this is probably going to move along slowly.

Kat -First Post

Hey, I'm an intern at BHG and this'll be my first post here.  It's finals week at MICA, so I'm super-busy, and here's one thing I'm working on right now.  I drew this little Jackalope guy for my 3D animation final and now I'm modeling him in Max.

Bog Witch

Hey everyone, this'll be my first post to the Big Huge Blog, so I thought I'd post something that I've been tinkering on for way too long. Its time to put this one to rest.

Charcoal portrait and oil landscape

Did this drawing of Jess a bit ago. I told her she could play video games while I drew her. I'm not doing that again. She squirms and makes faces.

I started an oil painting last night, a larger (18" x 36") version of the completed painting just below (6" x 12"). I just did the underpainting last night, and still have a long way to go, but it felt really good to be painting.

The original, from coastal Georgia:

Zbrush Learning

When I was starting to learn Zbrush a couple of weeks ago I grabbed a sphere and played around with it until I came up with this. I was just goofing around for a little bit, and it has any number of problems with it, but it was fun and I'll look back someday remembering this as one of the first things I did in the program.

Recent Life Drawings

Tried some brush and walnut ink out at the last life drawing session. It was fun - I enjoyed the fluidity of it, and that I had to be loose but also address mistakes.
The last one I just doodled on some. That thing wasn't in the room with us.
