Sorry it's been a while. It's been a pretty eventfull month. My fiance Nicole finally got to move in with me (YAY!), then I got the flu (but not from her ).
The flu hit me pretty hard, so unfortunately, my studio was neglected for about 2 weeks. I did whip out a quick painting before I got sick though:
The idea for this Ms. Pac-Man Pin-up painting has been floating around in my sketchbook for about a year now and a contest at Ain't It Cool News.com gave me the excuse to bust it out into a full fledged painting. My painting was one of five other paintings that were picked as the winners!
You can read all about it here!!! : http://www.aintitcool.com/node/32034
Also, Kotaku featured an article about the contest: http://kotaku.com/gaming/8+bit/aint-it-cool-8+bit-art-247588.php
Other than that, the first Femnauts painting is ALLLLLLMOST finished and will be unveiled next week!
I've also been working on background paintings for "Maria" and will hopefully be posting another sneak peek sometime in the near future, so STAY TUNED!!!....

I've recently over-hauled my website, so I've decided to start fresh with the blog!
I've started a new series of paintings called "Femnauts." It's a series based on the great pinup art of the 40's, 50's and 60's from artists like George Petty, Gil Elvgren, and Alberto Vargas. The paintings will explore the strength and beauty of women in the traditional pin-up fashion, but set in a mod-space theme.
This is a progression shot of the first painting from about a week ago:
This first painting is based on my fiance, Nicole. Next is the most recent progression shot, a close-up of her raygun!
I've still got some work to do on the skin, face and background, so keep checking back for the finished painting very soon!!!
Im still in the need of models to help get the series up to speed and keep it going! If you think you've got the right stuff to be a Femnaut, drop me a line!--- hefnatron (at) hotmail.com
