First Contact


It's finally finished! I started this painting back in February, before I really started to get my head around a lot of the concepts and processes we're being taught at the Oatley Academy. As such, it started off ok, but then quickly devolved into endless reworks, as it just wasn't working. I ended up binning it for a couple of months (in which time I did the Michelangelo painting and more studies!) before picking it up again earlier this month. It's funny to look back at the original version compared to where it is now, as I feel like I've learned soooo much in such a short space of time, it's almost as is if the first draft were by a different artist. Anyhow, it's finished finally and I can now look onwards to working on more AA based work, amongst other things....

In other news, I'm off to the ConceptArt.org Workshop in London tomorrow, so will no doubt have loads to share from that. I'll keep you guys posted! :-)
