So, todays topic was still life. Here is what i came up with. I thought that i would play around with some different brushes in Photoshop. I am aiming for a more painterly feel, like thick oils. This also pushed me to be more bold with my strokes. Enjoy

"Mussel Beach" from today

And the Bubble Prince from last week.


So, the topic for today was "muscle beach" and I did not know how to incorporate the muscle part into my piece, so i just took it out, sorry. But, i did concentrate on the beach part of the session, and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

The Brothers Mucham

So I finally finished my Mucha Emulation from a month ago. Sorry it took so long! I really enjoyed it and had a blast.

Ironically, my older brother Aaron, who is at school at Kennesaw State in Georgia (where I'm from) also chose to do a Mucha emulation for a duotone assignment. Also ironically, we both chose the subject of autumn. Go figure. Aaron did his completely in Illustrator.

Happy Thanksgiving and New Topic

Hey y'all. Hope everybody has a safe and fun week off. Keep working on Mucha if you want, or have some fun with the new topic. We're gonna go with a multi-themed topic to really stretch. Pick a Pilgrim or an Indian and go for it in the style of the great J.C Leyendecker. Here's some inspiration.

Still debating whether or not to keep adding to it...the Art Nouveau backgrounds are so complex! This one's inspired by Mucha's piece "Zodiac."
I think I may turn it into a cocoa label for Christmas presents :)


So I drew a really quick sketch of myself today ( enjoying an almost winter day. Then I looked to mucha for the colour. - (His work is aesthetically marvelous, but he likes to do scantily clad seducers of babylon so I put clothes on me. :) I didn't spend a lot of time on time is a sieve.

Sprite in Spring

Don't askquestions about the background. I was just too lazy to do anything else...

I did this one based off the Mucha painting "Easter Chimes Bring Nature." I liked that one and "Lorenzaccio" the best of his, I think. Amazing artist.

Nouveau topic

Allrighty...time for some good ol' fashioned emulation exercise.
Pick one (or more if you're feeling ambitious) season of the year and and go for it in the style of the amazing Alphonse Mucha.
Here are some examples of his work.

If you've still got a turkey to post, post 'em up! Just because there's a new topic doesn't mean you can't post an old one:)
