Art is great for sorting out all the complicated clutter in your head. It makes sense that all the classic artists filled their paintings with deep personal meaning. They had just as much to work through back then.
But, since i'm never going to tell anyone why I painted this:
Here's a painting of a knight ridding off on some quest.
With every new image I create, either for myself, or for work, it's become more clear that I really like the moments before or after the action. Action scenes are great and all, but there's something i can personally enjoy much more in a moment that's about to explode, or in putting the pieces together from something that already has exploded. This is a very simple form of the latter.
I would never have guessed that the nintendo DS could become so dear to my heart. It's great to be able to sketch color, rather than line. Definitely been good practice. Here are some of those color studies.

Looking at some of Bosch's paintings of hell, he made some awesome color choices, and I think they hold up to modernity really well.
These were from a walk in the park. I really wasn't able to get much more than just color dabs here, and discovered it's tough to paint outside (from reflections in the screen). I found it easiest to find a shady tree to hide under.
I came back to this one at home and added the red....thing...because I want to be cool.
On a drive with my sister, I sat in the passenger seat drawing things as they passed.
Drawing the ocean to relax.

A creature that eats trees and poops bricks. They slowly turn forests into bricked wastelands. Believe it.
Just a big cube tank in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
