Nathan Cameron Painting

This is a digital painting I did of my friend Nathan Cameron. I saved each step and there will be a step by step of this painting featured next Month in CG Arena's Digital Magazine. My Aretha Franklin will be featured as a step by step in July's 3D Total Magazine. Stay tuned for both of these.

Nathan is a good friend of mine who's a talented director/editor, he's filmed, directed, and edited music videos and short films . . . really cool stuff. He and I are currently finishing up my DVD on sketching . . . working on the editing end of things.

Detail. I felt it important even though I was going for a more realistic rendering to keep it brushy and loose in areas. It's painted and I want people to see that.

Here's the main reference of Nathan that I used for my painting.

Love it Jason, That detail is beautiful, the colors shapes and hair are all impressive. Tell him to print that upclose on a poster and hang it over his couch. Beautiful.

That's some nice distortion and a very cool painting style. I love it! Does it take you long to render like that?

You forgot to mention that Nathan also has the music in him. Has he ever met a karaoke machine he didn't like? :)

Very very cool man! The hair/facial hair is amazing on this piece. I hope when I grab your DVD I can get an understanding of how you do it.

I like the idea of retaining some loose painterly brush strokes. It makes a painting more interesting and offers more treats to the eyes than if it is highly polished and gives an overly-smooth digital feel.

When is your DVD going to be out? I can't watch to get one.

Man... just beautiful! The hair is bewitching and the flesh tones are perfect. Can't wait to see the Aretha Franklin painted.

I know Nathan...seeing him grow up in the house...the fests, and I think this caricature seems to represent a greater facet of him than this photo reference does. I mean, it touches my impressions...and even goes to the root of his simply being a"Cameron"

Very impressive, absolutely wonderful piece of art work!!! Love it..

I'll bet Nathan loves it as well!!
