Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey thumbnails

Some preliminary sketches for a commissioned piece I'm working on.

Each sketch is around 2" x 3". I think doodles are just as beautiful if not more so than the final piece.

Snowpeeps, pumpkins, and scarecrows

Some recent freelance work...

The snow people were a ton of fun to draw and color. This was my first experience painting in Photoshop with the "scattering" option enabled for the Smudge tool. Thanks to Matt Cook for the tip!














Photomerge portrait

The image below is from the television show Spartacus. It was stitched together from several images that I screen-captured as the camera panned from the fallen bodies in the foreground up to Spartacus' face. Several of the background elements have been removed and painted over, and portions of Spartacus himself have been manipulated to fit within the image frame.
