This is my finished version of the sketch i posted a few days ago. Its actor Zach Quinto as Spock in the new Star Trek movie. Though I do admit to liking the new film I still am in no way a Star Trek fan and i think Zach is WAY cooler as Sylar in Heroes. Anyway I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I still have a ways to go, but i think the painting practice is starting to pay off a little.

Okay i gotta start off by saying that i absolutely hate the Star Trek franchise. I dont like the original series, the next generation, deep space nine, or any other incarnations of the show. Still, in spite of all my hatred for everything Star Trek my friends talked me into going to see the new JJ Abraham's Star Trek. I honestly have to admit, it was really good. the whole time travel thing was a bit much but i really enjoyed the movie, and thats saying a lot coming from me. i liked it so much i decided to draw Zach Quinto as Mr Spock. This is also my first sketch using my newly aquired Autodesk Sketchbook pro 2010. its taking a litte getting used to but i really like it so far. i may never draw in photoshop again.I do plan on doing a finished painting of this so check back in a couple days, hopefully it all turns out well.

I was looking for something to paint up real quick just for practice and to try out some different stuff. the problem was i couldnt decide what i wanted to paint. Then i came across this sketch i did of my cousin Blake over Thanksgiving and thought what the hell why not. I admit i really exaggerated some of his features and based on his reaction, im pretty sure he hates this painting. That of course means i love it that much more. So with that said, take a bow Blakey, i just made you famous.

For people who know me, they are aware that Bruce Lee is one of my favorite people to ever walk this planet. I will watch anything staring or about him and have seen "Enter The Dragon" no fewer than 50 times to date. With that said, the fact that i havent done a finished painting of the man is just insane. So, here is my tribute to the late great Bruce Lee

its been a while since ive posted anything. one day you take a break to relax and the next thing you know a whole month has gone by and you havent finished anything new. here is my attempt to break the monotony that has been the past few weeks. its probably my favorite rock band ever, Tenacious D. With Kage and Jabels singing, playing, and beign hilarious at the same time, how can you not like the D?
