Armature and other news
So, this isn’t really news, but I’ve been busy working at Armature since April. Absolutely loving it so far, such a great place to be. I’ve also been plugging away at my paintings, there are some new images in the Fine Art page. I’ve got some new ambitious projects planned, and I’m hoping to share progress on those so I have more frequent updates.

Some new stuff, and Tumblr

There are three new images in the Illustration section. You should totally check those out as well!

Two new paintings
I’m on Instagram (iamrctorres) now! Here are a couple oil paintings I wrapped up on Saturday. For me, every oil painting teaches me something new about process, technique, the context of the painting and myself as an artist. I expect it will be like that for the rest of my life.
The one on the left is 16″x20″ and the smaller one is 11″x14″. Both are Ampersand panels.

For The People
Here’s some of the work I did for them. It’s always enjoyable to work with a small team, because you get to wear a lot of hats and really push yourself. I also learned a lot about the setting of the game. Washington, DC has such amazing architecture. As with any project, this is not even the tip of the iceberg of all the work that had to be done by such a great, hardworking team. What a great effort! I hope you’ll play the game.

This started out as another sketch but I tried to take it as far as I could in a couple days.

Took an hour to practice some cartoony creature stuff and played with some colors.

In the interest of posting more often I want to start posting my sketches as often as I can. Here’s something I whipped up in an hour tonight:
And here’s something I’ve been noodling on for longer than I expected; I’m kind of obsessing over the background, it’s gone through several revisions. There are also some elements that are turned off right now because I haven’t developed them. I’ll definitely post a breakdown of the whole thing when it’s done!

Today I found out I made Image of the Day on ImagineFX.com! This piece was the one that helped me get my Wizards of the Coast job. What an exciting day. Here it is:

After a long time, I finally updated my site. Most of it was under-the-hood stuff. I wasn’t satisfied with the look and feel of my old site, and everything was hacked together because of my severe lack of web skills. What you see now is thanks to the awesome efforts of Clint Forrester. So I should really be saying, is that Clint Forrester updated my site
There might still be a couple bugs and there are things to do, such as putting up my 3D work and ironing out a couple of navigation issues, but check out the Galleries anyway! Anyway, I’m hoping to make some big strides in my personal journey as an artist. Here’s to 2012!
