It’s Another “Alternate Versions” Art Preview

Well, since I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article I’d planned to post today, I thought that I’d show off some alternate versions of a few of next year’s art instead 🙂

As I’ve mentioned before, many of next year’s paintings/drawings will be realistic landscapes based on photos I’ve taken (I’ve kind of had to go in this direction due to various planning time, inspiration etc.. related reasons). Most of the alternate versions here are earlier “work in progress” versions with fewer digital effects than in the finished versions.

Anyway, enjoy 🙂

Oh Joy! It’s Another Line Art Preview

Well, once again, I realised that I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article I’d planned to post today. So, like earlier this month, I thought that I’d post some of the “work in progress” line art for some of next year’s paintings instead.

And, yes, these are all realistic landscape paintings – this is mostly because, due to time reasons, quite a few of the paintings that will appear here during at least the first few months of next year will be realistic landscapes based on photos I’ve taken (and, yes, this is actually quicker than painting from imagination, if you can believe it).

Anyway, enjoy 🙂

It’s Yet Another Line Art Preview… Again

Well, since I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article I’d originally planned to post today, I thought that I’d show off some of the “work in progress” line art for some of the paintings I’ll be posting here next year instead.

Although most of these will be realistic photo-based landscapes (since I’ve had less time than usual when preparing many of the paintings which will appear here in the first few months of next year), there will be at least one sci-fi picture in this preview 🙂

Anyway, enjoy 🙂

Yet Another “Alternate Versions” Art Preview :)

Well, since I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article I’d planned to post today, I thought that I’d show off some alternate versions of next year’s upcoming paintings instead (with fewer visual FX than the finished paintings will have).

These are part of an extended series of realistic landscapes (based on photos I’ve taken) that will start appearing here in January/February next year. Basically, due to time reasons, there will be a lot of these landscapes next year since – ironically – they’re actually quicker to paint than sci-fi etc… art is. Don’t worry, monthly comics will continue this year and next year though (although the mini series will become shorter earlier next year).

Anyway, enjoy 🙂

It’s Another “Alternative Versions” Art Preview :)

Well, since I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article that I’d originally scheduled for today, I thought that I’d show off alternative versions (with differing levels of digital editing/effects to the final paintings etc..) of some of the art that will be appearing here next year instead.

Plus, since some of these paintings are a bit topical (eg: with regard to the snowy weather earlier this month), I kind of wanted to show them off. And, yes, due to the fact that I make daily paintings quite far in advance, these previews of next January’s paintings will be of “realistic” landscapes, based on photos I took.

This is mostly because it’s one of the only ways I can make good art quickly (without having to spend time working out what to paint) whilst also writing my daily short stories. So, yes, there will be a lot more realistic landscapes appearing here from mid-late January onwards next year.

Anyway, here are the “alternative versions” previews 🙂 Enjoy 🙂

Another “Alternate Versions” Art Preview :)

Well, like with a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article that I’d prepared for today.

So, instead of leaving today’s post empty, here is another preview of alternate versions (eg: Line art, versions with fewer digital effects etc…) of some of the art that will appear here early next year (and, yes, I tend to make art quite far in advance).

Sorry about this (and the slightly smaller number of pictures), but normal daily articles will resume tomorrow. Plus, of course, there will be the usual art post tonight.

Anyway, enjoy 🙂

Art Preview: Line Art, Alternate Versions etc..

Although I had a full article prepared for today, I wasn’t quite satisfied with it (it was supposed to be an article about computer games, inspiration and storytelling – but it mostly just ended up being a description of playing a computer game.).

So, instead of posting nothing, I thought that I’d show off some of the “work in progress” line art for some of my upcoming paintings (for late this year/early next year) in addition to some alternate versions (eg: with fewer visual effects etc..) of paintings that will appear here late this year/early next year.

So, enjoy 🙂 Normal articles should resume tomorrow (plus, there will be the usual daily art post here tonight too).
