Lepidoptera and the Frog
This is a digital and oil painting hybrid. I scanned an abandoned oil painting I did years ago, brought it into Photoshop and removed a chipmunk from the log and added a digitally painted sprite. The original oil was reworked in PS throughout.
Drawn in Photoshop

dpaint – Thanks.
Here are some oils, painted over 10 years ago, just before my digital conversion. My goal now is to get back into oils with a looser technique.
Chickens – 2000
(My last oil painting before going digital)
Eye of the Tempest – 2000
Inspiration for the gull was this photo of a gull I shot on a wall waiting for a feeding opportunity at the Philadelphia zoo.
Alpha Pair – 1998
The background was softened in PS on this one.
Cloud Shadow – 1998
The inspiration for the eagle portrait was from this bad candid photo I shot at a zoo of a rescued eagle with flight inhibiting permanent wing damage.

These are neat. I love the vibrant colors.
I like your Lepidoptera and the Frog illustration, nice details.
Dem wolves...DEM WOLVES! But honestly, great work. Very detailed and colorful. Very much enjoyed this.

Hey Bill, Good to see you setting up a finally finished thread. It's about bloody time! Lol.
Love the colours and sky in the first one. In fact, I love your colours throughout but I might already have mentioned that elsewhere. Oops.
Fantastic work as always. Thanks for sharing and I hope you post more new stuff soon.
