I know I haven't posted in awhile but I've actually been working on some stuff and have had some real inspiration thanks to my new art directors at work. They've become mentors for me, so everything I post from now on is totally dedicated to and inspired by Rob Corley, Tom Bancroft, and Chuck Vollmer. They're awesome artist and great people who inspire and encourage me day to day, so many thanks to them.
For this painting, I looked at a lot of Disney paintings (Bambi was a huge inspiration) as well as Chuck Vollmer's paintings, and Xiangyuan Jie (an amazing painter who did concept work for Disney, Blue Sky, etc). I'm doing a little project with a bear, a beaver , and a squirrel. I'll be posting the stuff I've been working on and even in-progress stuff from now on. I have a lot in-progress. I tend to be one of those people who works on several paintings and ideas all at once...it's just who I am. Take care and I'll post more later. Now, back to painting!
