Art of VANJA TODORIC and DUSKO BJELJAC: Check out the work on FB. Wonderful, solid background story telling art. Marvelous mood, colors, light. I worked on a very similar type of project years ago when I was in the gaming industry~but we did it traditionally. These days, with the aid of all these incredible art programs, like Photoshop and Corel Painter, the scenes come out more vibrant and it's just plain easier to paint digitally. Please give Vanja a shout out if you visit these beautiful peices..Thanks! Kimberly Or See the Link to the top right of my blog!
Or better yet...check out the blog:

Ok, the last posts were done from my new iPhone and I was surprised at the crappy quality of the camera~looks so much better on the iPhone then on the blog. So, back to scans which flatten the paint, can't seem to find a happy medium. I'll use the iPhone for an idea for size; I work pretty small but plan to leap into canvas next year~much larger! :) It took me a few starts to paint Robert in as a pirate because this year has been a non stop ride of big life obstacles and for the best results, you have to be calm and relaxed; I have tried to stay calm, but have had no time to relax. At any rate, I try to do as much as I can, daily, to keep the hand loose and the mind strong. These will be cropped and dropped into the cool, vintage brass folding picture frame I found at the Saugus Swap Meet about a year ago. The challenge was to paint small and still keep some detail with my aging eyes..

Pirate gift

I have a friend who likes pirates.  He works for Disney consumer products and I painted a few characters and him and will crop them into this little funky brass frame I got at the swap meet some time ago.
