Newest in my inspired-by-Avatar landscape series: The Waterbending Scroll.  

Great set of short video resources.  Good for both digital and traditional drawing tips.  

First attempt at interior architecture, inspired by Avatar Roku’s Fire Temple from “Avatar the Last Airbender”.  Really brutal and heavily referenced.. I definitely am going to need a perspective boot camp.

It’s shiny because I had to laminate it.  New, fun experiment in technique.

WIP WIP

I creep on the “Daily Spitpainting” group on Facebook but rarely post there because I find it so intimidating.  But this idea for “Afterlife Guide” would not leave me alone.

I empathize with this person but Imma just say that 19/20 years old PRETTY YOUNG.  Don’t get so wrapped up in “the industry” that you lose sight of how awesome an artist you are, and will be.  

I just downloaded and am trying out Alchemy.  I am basically in love with it.

"Today I have seen the Dragon"

This is a bit abstracted and out of context, but inspired by the episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender, when Uncle Iroh spots Aang riding the dragon in the spirit world (Winter Solstice).

I’m going episode by episode with these landscapes; they force me to learn new stuff each time.  I’m hoping by the time I get to the Agni Kai I can do it justice- my favorite scene!

Also, dragon scales? I long for sweet death.

So new, so fresh, so Clique.

I empathize with this so much it’s ridiculous.  Being an artist is hard! Don’t despair.

Done for The Wind Rises art contest over on deviantart.  If you are so inclined you can check out the process here, which is just my not-so-secret WIP update journal.. thingg.

SAM SPRATT’s 2014 PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY

In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.

In slightly less short: Longtime followers are no stranger to these contests but for those new to this or me, I’m an illustrator (my work: www.samspratt.com ) who has worked with National Geographic, Janelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, FX, Game Informer, Angry Birds, Wall Street Journal, among others – creating album and magazine covers, advertisements, and posters – but a big part of me being able to do all that has been you sharing my work over the last 3 years. As my small way of paying that forward, I’d like to paint for one of you as I would for my clients, but ya know … for free. Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantel, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.

As usual I’ll also be sending signed prints and haikus about your eyebrows to extra winners. The contest will stay open for about a week then I’ll randomly draw winners. You can enter on facebook and twitter for extra entries but be cool and don’t spam your followers.

This is basically awesome.
