At the end of the day at work today at Sony, fellow storyboard artist Dave got us all excited about painting with some examples from Craig Mullins’ web site. Wow! Beautiful, loose, powerful stuff – and most done digitally without the “digital” faux-airbrush look you see so often. Really amazing, and worst of all, he makes it look effortless. There are hundreds and hundreds of paintings to look at, too.
Then I got home and another board artist friend emailed me this link to some video looking over the shoulder of comic book cover artist Adam Hughes. Again, fantastic, inspirational stuff to get the weekend going.
