Prints Now Available!

I've finally got some prints available for sale through DeviantArt Prints. I've never used them personally, so I don't have first hand knowledge of the quality, but I've heard good things from friends.

I'm putting the Steampunk Star Wars series up for now. I've seen a fair bit of Star Wars fan art for sale, so I don't think selling these will be a problem.

Purchase Prints Here

Although some pieces are available at larger sizes, the best quality prints will probably be around the 10-12 inches or lower size.

If there's a piece of mine you'd like to purchase a print of and it's not in the store, let me know!

UPDATE: New Prints available!

Actual Steampunk Star Wars!

I-Wei Huang (aka. Crabfu), maker of many steam-powered robots you may have seen in the past, has gone and brought his own version of steampunk Star Wars to life with this totally awesome actual steam-powered R2-D2! The brass and wood accents are a great touch.

If you haven't seen his work before, I suggest you check it out.

As seen on Brass Goggles.

Speedpaint video

Hey guys, no new Steampunk Star Wars stuff yet. But in the meantime, I recorded myself doing a quick speedpaint. It's not the greatest painting ever, but I thought it might be interesting to show how I work.

At the original speed, this took 23 minutes.

For speedpaints like this, I generally have no idea whatsoever what I'm going to be drawing when I start. I just start scribbling until I see some shapes I like. This is a different method than I use for something like my Steampunk Star Wars images, where I have some idea of what I want to draw.

It's hard painting while recording it. It's like painting for an audience, I start to get self-conscious about every little mark. But it's cool being able to watch it back and be able to spot my bad habits. Also, when I speed it up 6x like this it makes it really look like I know what I'm doing!
