Yeti/Lockhammer and The Pain of Being Dead 2: BALTIMONSTER

Here's a new painting I just recently finished. All digital again. Its a constant learning experience right now every time I work in photoshop. I recently picked up painter, so I'm going to try messing around with it soon, there will be updates when something of note comes out of that. Coming up, I'll also be starting work on a 36x48" oil painting. I'm super excited about that. I haven't seriously painted in oils since my freshman year at MICA, and even though I got into MICA with all oil paintings, I feel like I'm going to be learning the medium all over again. It should be fun/challenging/rewarding, which is the best way things should be.

Oh, I almost forgot! For those of you that havn't heard yet, my work is going to be on display alnong with a bunch of other fantastic artists in a show titled The Pain of Being Dead 2: BALTIMONSTER. The painting further up in this post, along with the Golden Yeh Rén and the Five Fingers of Olympus painting are all going to be up. Here's the info straight from the gallery's write up:
