Sketching a dinosaur then animating it...
Saw Jurassic World 2 this weekend, made me wanna animate a dinosaur painting. Here’s a loose/crude animatic sketch of some explorations that I hope to work on when I get caught up with deadlines… More to come. Photoshop, Lightwave 3D, After Effects.

Happy May the 4th!
Re-posting this one, cuz, well... Why not. Original art was about 90 minutes (might have tweaked an additional 10 minutes on there, dunno) youtube link: youtu.be/ve0VQVYTpYc

Mock cover for tutorial pdf

I decided to create an additional pdf with notes about brush settings and further tutorial elements. Having a little fun with the cover...
Tutorial that I will be adding this to: www.udemy.com/how-to-digitally…

WIP- dragon painting for tutorial
Youtube video of this painting: youtu.be/8TZVkU4DB6U
Working on an older painting that I started a while ago… This is a “reboot” alt  version based on one of my older works. I started it as a tutorial, but never finished it. But now that I completed this other tutorial here— www.udemy.com/how-to-digitally…  , I decided to go ahead and finish this one to add to the tutorial as a bonus extra. (If you already bought the tutorial in the link, you will of course automatically have access to the new content)

So.... I did a new piece of art of an old subject: a dragon. Did my usual thing; screen recorded it (for future tutorial creation) and then time-lapsed it... Then posted it on Facebook, and at the same time, youtube. This was 3 days ago. As of this post, it has been viewed over 71,000 times on Facebook (shared over 1700 times) yet, on youtube it hasn't even broke 1000 views. I'm relieved and perplexed at the same time. Relieved, because up until this moment, I really was wondering if perception of my artwork was going downhill (as I have seen so many newer channels with 6 digit view counts, and I usually can't go much higher than 400). So I thought I would try going back to doing a dragon (my most popular subject when my YT channel was booming). I posted it on FB thinking it would do okay, and was mostly focused on trying to get my YT presence back up there. 

Well... Ultimately, the reverse happened. Which is actually really good. Because now I don't feel so bad about whether or not it is my art-- clearly, it is an algorithm thing, or something. I suppose it could also be the trend of content I have been putting on YT in the last 5 or 6 years. Kind of wandered farther away from this tyoe of art gradually each time by posting a wide swath of "other" work... And snippets only, too. Perhaps I just need to upload one painting a week of this subject and caliber. We'll see. I shall continue on!
