Where have you been? (Oils & Digital) 6.20.07
I have been away for quite awhile. Most of you who know me, know me as the country boy from Tulsa that started drawing again the day that I signed up to the Conceptart forums (back then, it was really just a forum...hehe). My learning process has had quite a few ups and downs to say the least. I have bounced around from digital to traditional painting more times than....well, just a lot.
A divorce led me to Philadelphia and a totally new life. I have a wonderful fiance` (will be my wife on 7.7.07) and despite the long distance between myself and my kids I have found ways to be with them as much as I can. My son lives with me, my fiance, and her son now. The new life led me in a different direction. I put down my brush once again in favor of a keyboard. This satisfied me for awhile. I love writing code. I am engineer and I view this as a form of art in and of itself...however, the pull of the brush is too powerful to overcome...thank goodness. Well, the brush...and the eyes of my beautiful woman.
So, I am back. I will try and update as often as possible, but with the approaching wedding, two vacations, and my kids visiting right now from Tulsa...I can't promise it will be often enough. I can't wait to pour through the new sketchbooks.
Here is some older work:
All of this old stuff has been pulled from my old sketchbook thread:
And a new one, finished:
And a few new things not yet finished:
