When jon from Iam8bit asked me to paint a piece for the upcoming 10year anniversary show that represented what I loved most in gaming as a Kid I just knew I had to paint star fox.
I carefully spent several hours just mixing my paints before I began, and once I started I just couldn’t stop. I stayed up for the next 40hours straight trying to paint faster then my oil paint would dry, (I hate remixing and matching colors).
In the end I got deathly ill right when my friend from Indiana got into town for a 4 day slamcation, and was forced to go camping, ride coasters and play paintball all while feeling like dropping dead.
TOTALY WORTH IT!
I really turned a corner with my color usage on this one, and can’t wait to get started on the next project so I can see if I retained any of the skills I developed while living on coffee and dreaming of sleep.
