I decided to make a video. People have been encouraging me.
It shows my painting process from start to finish when working on a portrait from imagination. It's not a tutorial exactly but hopefully it'll be of some help or interest to someone out there.



Frankly, it's a bit stupid, but my main goal was to get to grips with making a tutorial video so if I ever want to then I can. Consider this one a dry run- I'll probably make something more useful in the future.
Marooned. by SpikedMcGrath
Marooned.
Isn't it awful when your mutinous space pirate crew leave you on an asteroid? Spotty internet access at best, no toilet paper and the food is terrible. Not to mention the unspeakable bleakness of space pressing in you from all sides. It's partly why I never leave the house.

See the somewhat convoluted rough process behind this picture on my blog here: www.spikedmcgrath.com/blog/mar…

Supremely Deadly Warrior Wasp by SpikedMcGrath
Supremely Deadly Warrior Wasp
So, normally I just draw things for a living, but my uncle- who's a big shot at Lockheed Marvin- the big war planes supplier and US governmental lobbying company- thought I might be able to help him sell a few of these things by using my artistic skills to chuck together a nice advertising picture. Unpaid, but I get to say that I did it.

I don't really know anything about war planes though, and frankly, neither does my uncle- he just talks loud and is convincing to middle-management- so I just had to guess at a few of the details. I'm confident it's all fairly accurate.

Stats:
Speed- Dead fast!
Range- All the way!
Payload- 2 big bombs and 4 little ones (not included)
Interior- Cream suede

Anyway, if you want to buy any planes please email: terry@lockheedmarvin.com (Please no timewasters)
You need a big lawn so they can take off.

Despite being repeatedly told that all artists drink too much absinthe, cut their own ears off and only make money after they’re dead, I have always wanted to be one. Strangely, I haven’t grown out of it.

If you're interested in commissioning me or purchasing rights to use artwork please email me via: tom990@gmail.com
I don't bite, but I will ask for real money.
