This was a very quick sketch done in Painter using the Mirror Painting feature. This is cool because you only paint half the image.
For those unfamiliar with the tasty campfire treat, smores are a square of chocolate smashed between two graham crackers and a roasted marshmallow. As I was painting this image for Corel, the idea of an unlucky knight caught by the mama dragon, taken back to the lair, and heated by the little ones so the inside of the suit of armor was gooey and warm while the outside was a bit toasted and crunchy. I know, kind of a gruesome idea but that is what I like; creepy and cute! This is a crop of the entire image and it was done in Corel Painter.
Angry Stay Puff
While demonstrating digital painting at Comic Con in Salt Lake City, there was someone in a Stay Puff marshmallow costume in the booth next to the one I was in. I needed new demo material about every 30 minutes. Couldn't resist the marshmallow man.
"Stew's Alien" In a digital painting class that I was teaching, Stewart, one of the students was demonstrating to another why it is important to have a tablet and stylus instead of just trying to draw with the mouse. Drawing with a mouse is kind of like drawing with a bar of soap. Anyway, I asked him if I could use his drawing as the basis for a painting demonstration and he kindly agreed. This is the final result. I actually kind of like the primitive nature of the mouse drawing and may try a few more of these in the future. I will post the video in the future.
