A little something inbetween worky work. Just needed to doodle, and before I knew it I was applying acrylic paint, and
then oil paint on top of that. Basically this was a sketch I just kept working. Felt really good to do a piece purely for enjoyment, without any real committment or expectation. I should do that more often.



"unsteady" - acrylic and oil on watercolor paper

Hey Scott! I love all the things happening in this "doodle", particularly how it raises so many questions for me as a viewer.

For instance, did it start out as a goblin head and gradually become a rock formation or was it planned that way from the start?
I imagine the title suggests the unsteadiness coming from the girl throwing the island off balance, as if despite the whole thing being made of rock, it's still weightless and having her on it is tilting it that way. Maybe it even tilts to the right when nobody is there, as the fallen foliage has travelled so far to the right, or is that wind? hmmm.

Good to see you enjoying yourself once in a while. :)

This has a Magritte flavor to it...surreal, like a dreamscape. I like! Colors are nice, too!

A beautiful and intriguing piece. It has a "What Dreams May Come" quality. I like the little touches of color on the ground.

This must be some kind of opposite world where the balloon leaves are heavy and rock is lighter-than-air. I wonder whether the turtle/demon face is becoming obscured or coming out of the floating rock.

One thought, it might be nice to have a few of the balloon leaves rolling off the side of the rock and falling downward to the left as if the thing tipping has them falling off. Some could have changed color as if Autumn has arrived.

Spectacular cover for the GRIMM game. The mood is captured very well.

I'm really impressed water color paper could hold both acrylic and oil paint and then be articulated with such subtle strokes. I never had much success with any relation to water colors. Amazing job on this painting.

I look forward to more of your work :)

Wonderful illustrations, man.

aawweesoommee! I love whimsical stuff like this. And I can relate with sketches that just grow out of control. But you got a great piece of work out of it!
