I cant believe it took me so long to make a Spawn piece...but here it is! I've always loved Spawn, ever since my big brother Paul bought me my first Curse of the Spawn figure when I was probably in 3rd grade or so. I loved it and it got me into the comics and I've been a fan ever since. I obviously put my own spin on the character, but I had a lot of fun doing this, I hope this broke the shell for more Spawn pieces in the future.

Original character concept that I did start to finish today. I integrated all of what I have learned so far from doing all of my speed paintings into an original piece, and I HIGHLY recommend doing it for practice. I learned a great deal from doing just the five this past week or so and its really paying off already. Set aside 2 hours of your day (or even one) and just do it!
Also: This week I really realized what I need to start working on...and whatd I do? Started working on it. I believe everybody should be looking at their work critically and really see what they need to do if they want to be successful with their art - or anything for that matter. The first step in getting better with anything is first realizing what you need to do to get there! For example: the other day I realized I have no idea how to draw noses out of my head - so that afternoon I just sketched them for a few hours. Also I just studied many of my favorite artists, compared them to mine, and really started noticing huge things I needed to do to mature my work - mainly color schemes. Draw everyday! Take care ya'll
