Eagle Datagistics Large Employee Painting

This was an a big leap project for me to take on, because this time I recieved a bigger budget and was able to render this #painting with more a realistic approach to this #Illustration. I was originally approached a couple of years ago to go into the office and draw about 12 of the company employees. I explained to him to Chuck that I felt rushed last time and that I would rather try to have more time in my studio to painty the 14 employees in a layout of the office and see it over looking he gulf and the St Pete Pier. 
I was asked to come in for a photo shot with my painting and I made up some individual post cards to hand out as keep sakes

And then Here is the the final 30"-20" size 14 employees painting. I felt I could keep going but I had to find a end. The client was very satisfied, and that is what counts
I did a photo collage to help find references ideas.
Drew a #sketch to get a rough idea of how to proceed
From this sketch we had some changes and reordering
Once changes was approved I started adding values
The next step was to do a full value under painting to get ready for the color layer

Howard stern Caricature

I decided to draw Howard Stern for the Caricaturama Showdown 3000 on Facebook, but I did not over render it this time in a more comic book style. I am happy with the outcome and was done fairly quick, there is a lot of other jobs to do, so nog much time. Alright have a good week everyone!

Brother and Sister Gift Painting

I was asked by a repeat client to do a painting for her grand children. She is going thru a lot drama in her life and I hope my talents will give her encouragement in her life. She wanted me to include the Bear Mountain in upstate New York in this painting. I got a new commission to do a large Caricature painting for a another repeat client at eagleDatagistics company with 14 employees!
Always fun to see my digital work printed!

Art work inspired by Hell

I found some inspirational art work for some Illustrations I am working on based on hell. There are some very talented artist in this collection, comment if you recognize the artist!

But then there is the Grace of God with love from Jesus Christ by dying for our sin

Steven Tyler Caricature

I have other jobs to work on, but when I heard that Steven Tyler with Aerosmith turned down a Jason Seilers painting that he got commissioned by Adobe to do, I just knew that I had to join the rest of the artist the around world on the Caricaturama Showdown 3000 Facebook competition. I also knew I had no chance against all these awesome artist, but it made me experiment and helped teach me to push my exaggeration in my paintings. I was also able to let out some frustrations I have been having as of late. I hope you have a great week and keep in touch! Check out my new portfolio
