Behind the scenes, and updates on current projects.
This blog is a place for me to document behind-the-scenes processes and projects. I love web design, animation, illustration and Craft!
This portrait of ‘Shere khan’ was the second oil painting comission I completed in December. The client wanted a Christmas present for their mother, and requested a portrait of her bengal cat. The client also loved my Victorian animal series and asked for the cat to be dressed in a Victorian outfit. I studied photos and video that the client provided in order to get an idea of Shere Khan’s personality, and suggested an explorer theme for the painting.
I opened oil painting commissions towards the end of 2018 and completed two pet portraits at the end of December.
The first commission to be completed was a portrait of ‘Mac’. The client requested that the cat be wearing a witch’s hat and holding a wand in the painting. As the client’s cat was named for Professor MacGonagall in Harry Potter, the wand design is based on the character’s wand.
The prints for Tier 3 of my Gamewisp Art Subscription channel arrived yesterday and I am very happy with how they turned out!
As I mentioned in my last post, Gamewisp is similar to Patreon in that you can support an artist by pledging for monthly rewards. The advantage of Gamewisp is that I am able to integrate my Gamewisp page with my Twitch channel. However, you don't need to be following or subscribing to my Twitch channel in order to pledge on Gamewisp
In my case, I currently have three reward tiers available. Tiers one and two are for digital art rewards, while Tier three subscribers can pledge for a physical print to be mailed to them as well as receiving all the digital rewards from Tiers one and two!
On November 19th 2018, we lost our best friend.
Hey everyone, I have some news! Recently the company I worked for was sold, and I have taken the opportunity to strike out on my own and start working on my art and design projects full time!
I am so excited to have this opportunity and have already been making the most of my new schedule. I am now streaming four days a week on Twitch, and am enjoying sharing my progress with everyone who pops in for a chat!
