Steve Jobs: Seiler Style!

This is painting that I did for my History of Illustration class at UVU taught by Perry Stewart. The assignment was to pick an illustrator and to create a piece based on their style. Perry suggested that I pick Jason Seiler (www.jasonseiler.com) His work is fantastic! The original sketch was done in blue Col-erase colored pencil and the final painting was done in Photoshop. This piece was a blast to paint hope you all like it!

The Process...

Hey gang! I was working on some stuff for school today and thought I'd share a little bit of my process. First I started out with a quick pencil sketch. Next I scanned, resized, converted the sketch to non-photo blue and printed it out. Then I inked and applied some watercolor to it. The paper I used was horrible for watercolor and was being quite difficult, so back into the computer it went for a little digital treatment... and Presto!

Banjo Pigs!


I'm still messing around with watercolor paints in my media tech class at UVU. The latest assignment was "Banjo Pigs".  Here is the website that inspired the subject http://banjopigs.blogspot.com/. This time I used a little photoshop magic to enhance the paintings. (watercolor, ink and Photoshop)

Honest Abe


I actually painted this one before the red hulk but I figured that I'd post it up anyway. I've been experimenting with traditional mediums in Illustrative Media Techniques 1 at UVU. We just finished oil paints and have now moved on to watercolor. This is my first watercolor painting for that class. It was a real pleasure to paint this and I did learn quite a bit. Aside from letting the beard and hair get out of control I'm happy with how it turned out. (graphite and watercolor)

Red Hulk



I found a really cool 3D model of the hulk on the internet the other day and decided you use it as reference for my next watercolor attempt... It's always nice to unplug from the computer and use traditional mediums (Graphite, ink and watercolor). This was way fun to make. Stand by for more!

More often than not I find myself doing a lot of these quick sketch portraits just to stay loose. I like them because I get away from my computer and get back to my roots. When I was a teenager my buddy Justin and I ,when we weren't out skating, would sit at the kitchen table draw for hours like this. They only take anywhere from 5-30 minutes depending on how involved I want to be.

There is a special topics digital painting class being taught a UVU this summer (2011). I couldn't take it but the ever so talented Don Seegmiller (instructor) and My buddy Stewart Craig (fellow student) were kind enough to give me some of the assignments. So here is assignment 1 Alien head. Don's tutorials are amazing and I really felt like I learned a ton. I would love to try this one again...

Here we have my "descriptive self portrait" for my Digital painting class at UVU. The requirements for the assignment were that it had to be produced using only photoshop. It still has some problems but overall I'm happy with how it turned out. Pretty fun assignment.
