Final Monster Painting!




Here's my final for the cover of the Cleveland Scene! It's strange, because even though it's a bit disturbing to look at, knowing what the man did and all, I really enjoyed painting it and watching it all come together. Also, I feel that I'm coming into my own with digital painting, being able to hold on to a more traditionally painted feel, while keeping an original "Seiler" look. This was a fun piece to work on, keep checking in, more work to post soon!

Great stuff as usual Jason. What resolution and canvas size do you work in for digital pieces?

That's one heck of a sweet painting Jason! There's definitely a really creepy sense of life to it. On a technical note, I love the edge work.

Killer, looks great, it is not easy to keep any kind of traditional look to digital, too slick I guess but this looks great I really dig the hair work on the back of his hair. I also like the color and taxture of the background. Nice

Great as always. If I could offer a critique; it seems like the arms have different lighting than the head. Don't you use Photoshop? The hair looks like it was done in Painter.

Jason! You rock my friend! Amazing piece. You're really getting the painterly feel with a digital medium. You also captured the personality.

Nice work on painting Jason even though, in my opinion you could stretch more on body expression like the Quasimodo from Notre-Dame. Its always a joy to come here.

It is very nice indeed. I suppose with a subject like this you have to be careful how far you caricature it otherwise it loses it's impact.

I think you hit a nice "surreal" feel. He has that disturbed look that most of us associate with these kinds of people.

I also dig the red hilite in his eyes: just a hint of evil.

Thank you so much everyone, sorry it's been a bit since I replied here, been busy.

Dan asked what size I do my digital work? It has to do with how large it will print . . . this piece printed at 10X12, so I painted it at 12.5 X 14.5

Thanks again all!!!!

Jason: your work is so beautiful that I feel ashamed to point this to you, but your glasses are wrong. You get the left arm (the remote one) implanted a tad upper in the frame than the right one. So, this arm became invisible instead of crossing trough, behind the lens.
It doesn't diminish even a bit of this terrific painting value (just keep it between us)

Sublime hands.

Out of interest, how did you feel about his commission, Jason? Considering someone like Ralph Steadman has apparently refused to draw politicians for years because of the pleasure they get from being depicted, this seems to me an unusual gig to choose to commission a caricature for (albeit a magnificent one).
