Updates coming soon. Been busy with new jobs.
Working on Eighth Sin again!
The Silmarillion - Forging of the Silmarils by oGuttermoutho
The Silmarillion - Forging of the Silmarils
This was another Tolkien commission I did for my friend Joe to accompany his Fangolin and Morgoth picture!

This time, he wanted me to paint Fëanor forging the Silmaril's.  I had to reference a ton (and I mean a TON) of stuff to even do this. And ask Joe a million questions, as he's a Tolkien expert, but I finally finished it!
After... probably 3-4 months of working on it off and on (I'd say a few weeks total) I think I finally finished it. :)

Fëanor is seen here giving his essence along with the light of the two trees in the background (Telperion's silver and Laurelin's gold, otherwise known as the Trees of Valinor) into the three gems and thus creating the artifact worth most in the Tolkien world.

It was supposed to be simpler, but I wanted to make this a little more extravagant for Joe as he's been a good friend of mine for a long time.

So! Here you have it. :)

Edit: Something I've noticed... a lot of my shading in here looks rough, whereas in Photoshop it looks rather smooth... Any one have ideas why? I'm saving it as a high quality jpg for uploading purposes,but if there's something I'm missing? Lemme know!
Finally back. So.... upload s'more Gus, wouldja?

Lemme see here...

I'm a graduate of Sheridan College and have my Bachelor in Applied Animation. I do a lot of freelance work, work for specific clients and studios. I'm doing a lot of stuff with bands, local and out of town (ie, anywhere else) and that's shaping up real well! I do portraits, landscapes, tattoo art, character art.. sheesh, almost anything I can get my hands on! But I don't want to call myself an artist yet; I feel the need for myself to earn that title.

I currently live in Kingston, Ontario, and aim to make my mark here. And this town is treating me well! I'm saving up to either get a house, or a studio space to begin the works of a studio.

I pretty much explore the visual and musical aspect of art, having been in bands and involved in the music scene here in Southern Ontario. I wanna use all my experiences, throw them all together and perhaps come out with something cool.

Who knows?

Current Residence: Kingston, Ontario, Canada
Favourite genre of music: I usually listen to punk and metal, but anything's good, honestly.
Favourite photographer: Currently? none. But I do admire a bunch of people on here.
Favourite style of art: Comic book, classical, realistic, graffiti...
Operating System: Windows Vista
MP3 player of choice: the ol' iTunes and my diePod
Shell of choice: Uh. Snail shells are cool.
Wallpaper of choice: I have no clue. As long as it's fucking cool.
Skin of choice: <-- what?
Favourite cartoon character: Homer Simpson. Who else?
Personal Quote: Everytime I see a butterfly, I wonder if it's you.

This may be a bit odd and random, but I totally had a dream with you in it last night. I can't pinpoint exactly what all happened now, because memory is fading and such, but what I do remember was veeery iiinteresting.
Here's hoping that your part time jobs aren't weighing you down too much. I miss talking to you, buuuddy! I hope you are well. :D
Talk to you soon.

I did ! I took up two part time jobs and working at the restaurant for the next month and a half! Like a lot of artist's, I ran out of money :( So I've been working, commissioning, and pretty much killing myself, with brief interludes on the internet when I go sit down and relax at the coffee shop :)

The tattoo was a cat's eye, btw :) I will need to take a picture of it for you!
V7Stick Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Professional Photographer
Yeah, I know how it is. :)
Well, make sure you take time for yourself to actually relax. Don't stress too much.
Awww. I can't wait to see it. ^_^
