My first printed work!

I just bought a copy of ImagineFX issue number 73 - September 2011. And I'm very pleased to let you know that my painting Dr. Hawkin's Last Dive got featured on the Forum Winners spread. Many thanks to Beren Neale, to my friends, loved ones and fellow artists! I am grateful for the support, tips and encouragement! This is the first time my work got printed so this one's for you! I hope I get to publish my own book in the future! :)

Rage or something along its line is what I feel when a computer decides to crash before I get to save my work. F**king machine! I'm gonna miss that painting I was working on. It was a speed-painting of  landscape that I've been doing for 2 hours. Damn! I was too frustrated to repeat it so I decided to do some Green Lantern fan art instead.

Well... This guy here isn't green at all! But he does appear in the same title as his green-clad adversary. I've always wanted to paint Green Lantern but I do not yet have a solid idea about how I'm gonna do it so it'll be Atrocitus for now. I would love to paint all the prominent lanterns of each corps but I don't want to promise it. I think it's luck that gave me the spare 3 hours that I used to paint this so I don't know when I can make a follow-up if I can make one at all.

Hopefully, the next time I post here, I'll have more interesting stuff to share. I actually have been doing quite a handful of paintings lately. I just can't divide my time properly yet which is why I don't get to post here a lot.

Oh, by the way, I just found out that one of my paintings will be in issue 73 of ImagineFX. Cool! It'll be the first time my work is going to get published somewhere! I hope to get into Ballistic someday!
