Thank you for the comments...and the ratings......means allot...made my day
My more recent pieces are done mainly in Painter, starting off with random brush strokes with nothing in mind from the start...I find pallet-knives are fun, and oils. Mess around with the values in the brush creator...then move back and forth from painter and Photoshop...photoshop mainly for color adjustments and composition tweaks...I find the color option sliders help me pick hues and values...I use painter 9 and an intuos tablet from wacom...
for my line work and ideas I find myself putting random lite lite lines and just experimenting with shapes in parrallel and contrast...and making beeline dances...I admire all spiders...I would like to get into more reference work in the future...but for the most part its all from outer and inner space these days...Ive used other things in the past for example grass stains, coffee stains... on paper and finding shapes and such in the randominityity of it all...
hope this helps
Another piece, I have another version of this I may be putting up, still tweaking it...changed a bit...not sure whats up with the bar at the bottom...something got lost in translation...?
hope you like
here is how that other one started turning out...there is another version as well...hehehe...
Thank you much for the comments...any questions or ideas...lemme know...anyone know how to get into the commercial art field? Freelance or anything? Any help would be greatly appreciated
here are a few newer pieces and a larger copy
all done with corel painter
Dude... awesome work. I don't know much about getting gigs, but I do know that near the bottom of the forums there is a sub forum for freelance gigs... you should check that out, you're sure to get some jobs!
really nice soft colors,keep posting
Love the work. Definitely bookmarking your book.
I really love the soft feel to your work, and the dramatic use of light.
Post more please !
As far as work goes. Don't be afraid to take some low pay gigs at first, just for exposure or to get some work printed. A few top artists started out just doing low paying work for Role Playing games and stuff. Always helps to have a few published pieces in a protfolio. Shows you have some experience working with art directors and under deadlines.

Quick one messing around with shapes and such.
Building a nest is big challenge.
AMAZING Stuff, great style keep on doing your thing.
Another piece done as a portrait in progress of someone special to me.
Hey there Jerome, it's been awhile. It's good to see new stuff from you! You're doing some wicked stuff with brushes and seem to be moving along pretty quickly.
What are you doing as a career? What are you hoping to do? This stuff is seriously awesome, and it's curious to wonder.
New thing...will post updates for this and others soon...injoy
little something done on big canvas in an afternoon...for the US open snowboard event at Stratton Mt VT...
