Graphic Novel

i was commisioned to illustrate 5 paintings for a graphic novel.i decided to use oils for this project. i had so much fun going back to oils that i started a side project in the back. every time i took a break, i would paint small portions to the canvas in back. paintng with goauche, i would never wash my brush and it would still be good.
now that im messing with oil, i still forget to clean the brush.

wow, i haven't spent 9 hours on a painting since graduating. still tons to do, but i cant stand working on a piece for too long, so im going to put this away for a couple of weeks. i really don't know how people paint on a wacom. 4 hours in and my arm was in pain! it's funny when i paint with gouache, the image always turn out graphic which is the reason why i paint quicker. but when im using oils or digi it forces me to turn form. anyways i was ask to illustrate this using only shades of blue, orange, black and white.

the awesome guu press did an interview with me the week of my graduation. if anyone is having trouble sleeping, then read will knock you right out:)
