7deadlysins Gallery show.

I entered the 7 deadly sins art competition a while ago, while I didn't win the grand prize I was included in the gallery show with a bunch of other artist.
the competition included illustrators, fine-artist, graphic designers, and sculptors from around the word with artists entering the show from more than 70 countries
here is the address to the main page of the competition.

Hundreds of artists submitted and not everyone could be included in the show, but I was on the 7 sins contest website and saw a photos of the first gallery show, and one of the photos on the home page had my image in the background being looked at by one of the gallery patrons.

This was very exiting for me to see my art in the gallery and on the photo page of the 7sins web site! this is very good exposure for an aspiring me :)
The first exhibition arising from the 7sins international contest has been a success, both critical and audience ways. For ten days the exhibition has been held in one of the best areas of the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, artists from more than 70 countries submitted art to the show, and the show will go to many cities and countries around the word..

This is the image the gallery patron was looking at in the photo on 7sins contest....

I had one more image entered in the show it is below

Each image had my name on it so hopefully I got some good exposure

Jonathan Fesmire MFA project

hey Everyone, the past month or so I have been working with my friend Jon Fesmire helping him with his MFA project, I have been doing concept images and sketches for the characters, environments and story Jon came up with.
this is a link to youtube where Jon is going to be posting his video logs and step by step progress of his Masters project. Jon's project is to render 3D models in a realistic way so he can eventually get hired on with a great movie studio doing the same thing for Movies! You know the kind, like Hellboy or Iron man, where you have a character in the movie that looks real but never existed, Half the monsters in Hellboy 2 are done in the same way Jon's project is.
Jon's Project is a fun one, with undead Zombie like gunslingers, a genius mechanical inventor/Saloon Madam with a giant robot, and a Steam punk Coyote. Real fun stuff for an artist like me to draw and paint.

here is the link to Jon's Master thesis blog where he tells more about his project

and here is the address to Jon's Diviant Art site where he puts all the drawings for his project.

Please check it out, it would be worth it
