In between pictures I’ve been taking the chance to research artists and illustrators that I may not have come across before ‘ John Bauer’ being one of those. It’s been a good exercise as I’ve managed to produce a few pictures influenced by what I’ve come across lately and I’ll update the gallery with one or two of them pretty soon. I’d definately recommend a visit to http://bauer.artpassions.net/ to see some fantastic illustration of yesteryear and a great source of inspiration.
In other news! I am again very fortunate to have another couple of QA’s in this months Imaginefx magazine. Grab it from your newsagent now!
Sorry for the lack of posts recently but I’ve been away on my holidays. I thought I’d give a mention regarding my QA in septembers ImagineFX magazine (issue 60). It was a great opportunity to use one of my more expressive artrage pieces for the question to be answered. It’s a style I’ve been moving towards due to how natural it feels when painting, I was reasonably pleased with the expressive qualities of paint stroke I got out of artrage, and especially the research I’ve made into John Bauer.
Free Tubes Update
Some people have mentioned that they are having a problem downloading my free-tubes. All I can recommend is that you try downloading a few times to get a non-corrupt file. I don’t know why it is happening, but my web hosting is free and therefore not entirely within my control or accountability. Sorry to those of you who have encountered this problem, I will try and find an alternatively download host for the files in the near future.
