Final cover for the Kansas City Pitch!






Here's the final cover as well as a small version with the paper's logo to give you all an idea of how it might print. The space on the lower right was left for text. I'd like to thank my pals Tom Fluharty and Chris Wahl for their helpful critiques while working on this piece!

Very cool indeed! I've been checking in on your blog for a couple of months now and I have been interested to get some insight into how you approach your painting. Is there any chance you might give an explanation at some point on this blog.

I'm not a painter by a long shot so I'm always curious to see how people go about thier craft.

Thank you everyone! This was a lot of fun for me to do, I really wanted to do the best Bush that I could . . . I've painted him before and it just gets better and better . . . my first few attempts were years ago, and let me just say that I'm quite embarrassed of what I did back then.

As far as my technique and how I do a painting digitally . . .

It is really nothing special. Sometimes I use layers, but not much and if I do I flatten them soon after, other than that, I just paint. I just put color where I think it should go, and after I have a strong foundation of color, I go over everything with detail. I don't work on one area at a time, I work on the whole piece all at once so I can see it come together.

Basically it's much like how I would paint with anything else, only difference is that it's digital and I can work faster.
