As we march to war

Acrylics on Canvas - 70X100cm
It's been a while since I had the time to finish a non-digital painting. Even-though I really enjoy the process I do miss the undo button at times. Those layers and adjustments in Photoshop would be very helpful in real life. Since I'm moving to the UK in a week, I won't have the opportunity anytime soon to start a new painting. Sad. But I will be working my ass off at "Rare" for the next six months! Not a bad way to spend your time too, right?
PS. the painting is for sale.

China Road Rage

Done in a limited amount of time last week. It's a scene in China at Dawn. I had a little struggle with the composition, wrestled it out in the yard and won. Got back in and went back into Bob Ross mode.

Some explosive zombies for valentines day. They are a part of my little Mechs vs Zombies project.
2023, the whole of the Americas has been overrun by a mutated Ebola virus, turning almost everyone into zombies. What started as an humanitarian operation by the new superpowers of the world. Ended up as full-on land grab. Creating a new cold war with many open conflicts. The best equipment for this operation are mechs, fusion powered walking tanks. Great for clearing (sub)urban areas of zombies and other threats.
Thousands of survivors on American soil have formed strongholds. From there they do not only try to survive the zombies but also keep their country free of these mechanical invaders. They are the American Human Resistance and their main weapons are ZEDs; zombie explosive devices.
Well more on that project later. Cheers!

Street Assault

Here's something the I did for an art-test over the weekend. The top one is a speedpaint and the bottom one a more worked out version based on the speedpaint. I had very strict guidelines, like which character, what kind of environment and which rifle to use.
I really don't know why I keep doing these bloody art-tests. They eat up all my time and stress levels sore because the only feedback I will get is: yes or no. Maybe I do it in the hope that I can leave this unpredictable freelancing behind and join a nice team again. Anyway, it's always good to have some more work to add to my portfolio I guess.
