Sunday Contentments – Paying work

In spite of having a raging head cold today, I’ve been hard at work. Above is a work-in-progress for a book cover I’m doing. I still have the hair to paint (I’m waiting for reference pics from the publisher, to be sure I get things right the first time) and some general touching up, but otherwise I’m pretty pleased with this one.

I like it when I’ve got paying work in, and not just for the obvious reasons. I also like being handed a challenge, and doing these books covers for LL-Publications has forced me to stretch my skill set frequently. This particular cover relied more on 2D digital painting than I usually do, and I’m hoping by the end of another year, I’ll be doing more straight up 2D painting and less 3D rendering. We’ll see how it goes.

Anyway, I got to do some nifty artwork today, and I’m happy about that. Hope your weekend is going just as well.
