The term is drawing to a close this week at the Watts Atelier. It was great to see so many new students this term at the Atelier and it's amazing to see the how good the intermediate students are getting! We start a new term October 13th and I wanted to give a little info on the classes I'll be teaching.
In this class we will explore a variety of exercises, including: thumbnails for picture making, free hand perspective, anatomy, gouache studies, draped figure sketches, and more. I will also demonstrate some digital sketch work, showing some techniques for picture making. Below are some examples from my sketchbook and just a few things we will explore in The Art of Sketchbooking class. This is a great class for all levels.

***UPDATE - My apologies. Ebay decided that my item was "miscategorized". Without any kind of warning, they pulled the auction. I'm very sorry for any inconvenience. I'm hesitant to re-list the item due to the low turnout. I will take some time and decide what I want to do with the painting. I want to thank the bidders and everyone who helped get the word out about the auction.
Now that Chris Rahn's Planeswalker auction on Ebay is done killing it, I thought I'd step in and offer up the original oil painting for Sunblade Elf. I have received several emails about the original and thought it only fair that everyone who was interested had a shot. The original is 12x16 Oil on masonite and is on an upcoming card for the new Magic M15 set. You can find the listing here:
I feel very honored to be among some of the best illustrators nominated this year for a Chesley Award. My work "The Last Stand of Thorin Oakenshield" is being nominated in "Best Gaming-Related Illustration" category. A big congratulations to all who were nominated this year! Good luck to all!
Spoilers are starting to surface around the web for Magic the Gathering's new Core set, M15. So far, two of my images have been released for the set.....I believe there is more to come. I will bring both of these with me to 2014 GP Washington DC this weekend, along with other original paintings. If you're planning to attend, please stop by and say hi.
Anyone interested in picking up this Key Art done for Magic the Gathering's Journey into Nyx expansion set, head on over for your chance to bid on the original painting. You can check out the auction HERE.
