Maybe like 6-10 hours this weekend...(I have no idea)?  We're done with rage for now, and there's a sort of grim acceptance and some dubious consent, sorry guys (not, really). ;D 

Slooooowly moving toward painting romance novel covers, apparently.

It kind of reminds me of the romance covers that were released in the '70s. That's cool, though! I miss those covers A LOT. The new ones are really bland.

Yes!!  No, definitely was aspiring to romance novel cover-hood, so thank you very much!!  Those were always a treat to look at and I agree they're pretty boring now.  I know someone who's cousins publish romance novels (ones a writer, the other sister helps with everything else) and they were talking to me about it, but they all have to be really realistically painted.  I was thinking maybe I could do some professionally a couple of years down the road...not quite there yet. :)

Hope you've been well!

Yeah, my painting is a bit too stylized for airbrushed photorealistic paintings of waxed chests, but I can aspire, at least, to Old School Regency style covers. If you, however, can make it to romance covers, I would be thrilled! I think the thing is to keep practicing. Practice makes perfect, as you know. :)

Indeed!!!  It would be such an awesome thing to tell people that's your job/clientele haha....except I'd constantly be pushing for hairy chests (again with the 70s!).

You would definitely make fantastic Regency period (um, or like any historical period) book covers!  SO, I plan to quit my full-time job quite soon to go back to school for a year for entertainment design courses so I cannot tell you how pumped I am to be a student and just practice my ass off!  I almost feel guilty about how excited I am....but not really.  HELLOOOOOO anatomy class and perspective!

If it was only 1980, then you and I would be getting romance novel cover jobs up the wazoo. ;P

That's really exciting about the entertainment design courses. Where are you taking them?

I loved the way you drew Sandor. And the background is complementing the colors very nicely. :)

I know, it's ridiculous how much I love them.  I will show friends these pieces sometimes and then I think, god they probably think I'm sick (they don't, they're cool - but still!)! :)

Haha, actually it's been something I've wanted to do forever anyway - ever since I saw Dany and Drogo together.  They are like Frank-Frazetta-romance-novel-win-supercouple.

Thanks!!!  I'm trying to be prolific again!

I love that description! When I went to comic con his daughter was there with some of his original work, very cool. And I remember Momoa went over and bought some of his work, so everything you've just said just came full circle in my brain.
