Man, I love seeing this stage of your paintings they have such a great quality to them. Very beautiful.

Seeing your finishes and the scale of them in person always knocks me back as well. Can't wait to see the finish on this one!

hey man.. it was awesome to see you and see you being successful. it really is comforting to know that freelance can be done after ringling as long as we bust ass and get ourselves out there. a lot of kids at ringling expect to have something handed to them after graduation. I think you are the perfect example of how it should be done. if anything.. you should be teaching POrtfolio class. hahaha..

anyways, i was telling you about a style that is hot right now in europe as far as design goes. check out this guy. i've been looking at him a lot lately. there is a lot of collage of photo, vector, drawing, and painting to produce an image. its kind of a cool look that people say might die out soon but its hot right now.

and then i found a tutorial on from the same guy on how he does some lighting effects. there are a bunch of other tutorials on the site. check it out.

for some reason i couldn't paste the direct link to that tutorial so after you get on that site scroll down and its the 3rd tutorial to the bottom it should say "fantasy light effects in photoshop"

Yo Eric! I was just thinking, in regard to your pieces, have you ever hear of the rule that where bone is closer to the skin, the skin is redder? Some examples are knuckles, knees, elbows, the nose, ankles, and etc. Anyway, we've seen that you like to include subtle things like the red and blue veins under the skin, so I was wondering if you'd ever heard of this one.
