Oils Portrait Painting Study

About 2 years ago, I found this nice piece of wooden board while I was on my trip to Japan. Something I like to do is to always keep an eye out on new objects to paint, skateboards, vinyls, antique old book covers, etc.

This past Friday I found some time to finally paint with oil paint again. A painting study of a portrait for fun, wanted to focus on tones.

I was uploading images on Twitter during the night of #FridayNightArtDorks (a group for artists to share art on friday nights) Here are the images throughout the night, documenting my process so far. Next step would be to start the color stage.

Official Alice in Wonderland Gallery Show at Arludik Gallery

Hey everyone, a bit more than a year ago, Jason Seiler, Thierry 'T-Bear' LaFontaine and I had the pleasure to assist lead designers Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera on some concept art for Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton. Now the film is finally coming out!! To see some of the production art already released, you can visit here.

My friends here at Imaginism Studios - Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera will be having their first big show in Paris, France at Arludik Gallery this coming Thursday, March 4th 2010. It will be an awesome show, through the past few months i've had the pleasure to see them work on these images for the show and they look AMAZING. If you are in the area please go out to see this show!! In this show there will be over 30 pieces of original art for sale and another 20 pieces or so of production art on display. Another awesome lead designer Michael Kutsche will also have some of his production art on display in the gallery!
