The Sea is my Mistress started as an early sketch idea for another project that ended up not being used. I liked the initial idea behind it a lot, so I developed it further. As a simple portrait, to give it character I decided to narrate through facial expression and to cause the viewer to question the ambiguity to this man's demeanor.

I like the concept behind the idea of the piece, the man really does look like an old sailor from way back when. You did very good on this piece.
The lighting, color, and sense of age and personality make this a great piece. Very exciting for a piece without any dinosaurs or spaceships or hot babes!
Great piece! The .gif is really useful, you changed it a fair bit from it's birth. I think you captured the age / wear-and-tear on the character's face perfectly.
I agree with others..it really does look like an old sailor..nice work.
Here's the most recent finished painting I've done. entitled the Escape.
the Escape was done in photoshop, approximately 11 hours. This painting was done in greyscale first, then with color overlays, and then re-painted overtop in color. Looking back on it now i should have just started in color, but hey what can you do. I'm learning here and there what methods I prefer over others. This piece is mostly imagination work with a little environment reference. I really enjoyed playing with the colors and environmental mood of this piece, and I think it came out relatively well.
Here's the HD video from start to finish. Compressed to just under 15 minutes for your viewing pleasure.
Nice piece. I like the movement throughout, especially in the cloak - and the facial expression is great too.

This illustration was done for a contest over at DeviantArt.com for their INCEPTION: The Big Under Graphic Comic Cover Art Contest. The whole piece took 6 and a half hours to complete, and I've compressed it to 10 minutes for your viewing pleasure.
This stuff is fantastic! I love your brush work and color choices. The first portrait piece in particular really stands out. Beautiful stuff!

Beautiful stuff. The forest thief/rogue is a real standout to me. Might have been a round about piece but I think its better for it. Love the lighting and color in it.
Damn that last one is awesome!
Much thanks for the videos. Its always useful to see the approach of an artist.
beautiful stuff, cant wait to see more
Great work!! Love the contrasting or complimentary colors you're using in each piece. Great color choices, too!
