Hello Dave

I've had this idea in my back pocket for a while. I've done time lapse video of my process in the past, and a couple of animated gifs compiling process photos, but never anything this extensive. Each frame is 5-10 min of work. I kept myself on an egg timer for over four hours. Very pleased to show the result!

And here's the finished card:

Television Inspiration

Recently finished this Candelabra and it got me thinking...

Television and movies are such great sources for inspiration in altering, sometimes I forget I've painted so many connected characters. I decided to look into the matter.

One of my more prolific muses comes as no surprise.

The other might, but shouldn't.

And finally, four that come from some personal favorites.

Happy New Year!

We've more than a week into the new year and I've already produced a variety of alters with a wide range of styles. Let's do a little recap!

New frame; classic Douglas Shuler art.

I know kung fu.

Happy little Berserk.

Mass Effect's Legion.

Jabba's Palace.

An old 80's favorite.

Going for that illuminated manuscript feel. 
After a 16th century woodcut of St. George.

I'm fairly pleased with what's already come out of this year - and there's lots more to look forward to. The completion of my Nouveau Power 9, some new styles I've been brewing up, and the release of Gatecrash of course! Keep checking in!
