socal digital painting showcase





Here are some pieces for a showcase put together by Nick Pugh on digital painting held at the long beach aquarium starting this weekend. The gallery showcases work from Nick Pugh, Annis Naeem, Shaddy Safadi, Robh Ruppel and I. The theme of the paintings is how man and nature are successfully co-existing in the southern California coastal plane.

awesome paintings, you def know when to show detail and when to block it out. When you painted these did you sample colors off an image of the scene or did you eyeball everything?
