2SEP18 Work-In-Progress
About 10 years ago I had a concept for a painting. It was hard to turn the thoughts into a concrete plan. I created a set with wall paper and a mirror. I hired a model to pose. The result is a painting named "The Open Secret". A few years ago I re-worked the colors by adding pastel to the oil painting. The result was closer, but still not what I had in mind. It's the image on the left.

Lately, I have been using Photoshop to manipulate a photo of my painting. The image on the right is the result of this photo manipulation. Now I am about to start a painting based on this collection of changes.
The name "Orion Shipworks" refers to the creation of 3D digital starships and vehicles. I originally created this account to display that type of work.
However, I also enjoy creating traditional artwork as well. Some of it is displayed here:…
My gallery here on DA has turned into my main online gallery. So it now includes a mix of traditional artwork as well as 3D digital creations.

So, why do I have two such different interests? Well, my professional training is in the field of computer system design. Part of my brain thinks like an engineer.
Maybe that's why I enjoy designing futuristic-looking vehicles using digital art. In addition I also have a great interest in aesthetics.
I'm particularly intrigued with the design and composition of drawings and paintings, for example how the viewer's eye is directed by shapes and lines.
As you will see, lately I've been focusing on the female figure, specifically trying to integrate the figure into the scene - such as an interior or landscape.

I've always been interested in art, but spent my career designing computers. Now I'm doing all sorts of artwork. I first came here to display my sci-fi fantasy creations. But now my traditional art is here as well. Feel free to leave feedback.

Thank you for the many kind words you gave.

I'd be lying if so many of my models didn't make my work much better than I deserve. LOL #SorryNotSorry
