Hey, here's another update! My father just turned 60 years old and I made him a caricature. This image has a lot of internal jokes, so I don't expect everyone to understand all that is going on here :) But I hope you like it anyway. You can see the entire image in the Personal Misc Gallery!

Hello, as I mentioned on my previous post, I was going to have some fun recording myself painting. So, yeah, I made my first YouTube video! My kid was nagging for attention, the camera was rolling and I tried my best to focus on the painting, what a stressful feeling. But atleast I managed to make something :D
Funny thing though is that I spent 10 times as much time trying to get it onto YouTube with proper video settings, I guess I must be stupid or something, since the whole world just dumps stuff into YouTube with no problems at all. I chose a rather non-original motif. I thought, if I'm going to make a video, it should be of something that appeals to non-art-geeks as well. I loved the movie Avatar of course, so why not do something inspired by that. I was surprised, but it should have been obvious, that there's already a thousand videos on YouTube doing the exact same thing. Oh, well, at least I tried to build up my painting in a proper way, not just sit and detail a traced sketch straight off a still-image from the film, like all the others do. It took me about 15 minutes to paint this. If anyone find it entertaining I might make another...we'll see how the hits go, make sure to spread it out to friends and people!
