First Post.

Well, this is the first of what I hope will be many weelky or semi-weekly posts. I am currently unemployed (layed off when Sega Studios San Francisco closed) and therefore technically "freelance".  So with all this extra time on my hands, I figured I should put it to good use and start seriously stretching my digital painting muscles.
 My aim with this blog, is to document and share my exploration of the digital paint process and my own observations, frustrations and triumphs with the medium. So here we go.
  This is my most recent effort. The software used is Painter 8 and Photoshop CS4. The one issue and comment I've received on it, is about the large size of the electrical outlet. I have to agree, since the piece is about the sheer feline bulk of this cat and the oversized outlet is creating some confusion about his scale. It's certainly something I can fix though.  I'll post a revised version, when I do it. Well now I'll have to come up with a sketch to share next week. I can feel the pressure already.
