Figure and stuff update

Hey all, I have a few more pieces from the last several months, mostly figure work and a few blogs.

First:  I have been casually keeping a food blog - not a critic site - more like a place to document what i've eaten. It's also an excuse to have fun with my camera. http://nateishungry.blogspot.com/

Here are some of my favorite figure works from recent months, all 3 hour poses, photoshop and a wacom:

Dante's Inferno!


I've been kicking this one around a while and finally got motivated to finish it when I saw this months image challenge over at Gnomon of Dante's Inferno. I got inspired for this one driving down a wide open country road just east of the foothills between Boulder and Louisville CO. In the middle of blistering hot August day, a couple of road workers were filling potholes and touching up the asphalt with these long propane torches. It struck me as a sort of vision of hell to be out on such a hot day dressed in protective gear and torching a wide open, heat rippled expanse. Anyway that vision stuck with me for a while until I've finally purged it to pixel paint!
