Hey Joe,

What resolution do you normally do these in? Do you start off 'zoomed out'or do you work at actual size?

I really like this format! I love your podcasts..

Dan- These are around 6" to 9" at 300 dpi, so I'm painting at around 25% or so. I'm "zoomed out" pretty far, so if I go in tighter, you'd see that it's a bit blurry. I'll show you on an upcoming video how it looks at 100%.

These pieces are made for warmup, for the sake of sharing what I'm thinking when I'm drawing or sketching. There is SOME process and tech talk, but I'm mostly focused on motivating others to draw, be inventive, and be ambitious. Any tech tips anyone can give me, always helps and I'll try them out. I've already had a few good tips which I'll impliment soon.

Sawa- your image didn't load. Email me the link again, and I'll take a look at it.

Bjorn- Thanks so much. :) I hope you keep visiting.

Hi Joe,

A friend just shared your blog with me. Love the illustrations, especially this one. I notice you refer to this blog as a podcast... are they available as such through iTunes? I enjoy having podcasts like this on the go via my iPod.

Thank you,
Dan

Hi Joe! I love these pod casts your doing! Big fan of your work so it's always good to see the artistic process of an artist you admire in the works.
BTW I personally find that the only thing more enjoyable to caricaturize than a human face, is an animal. I would love too see more of these animal caricature pod casts. Great stuff!

Joe,
This is great stuff. Thanks for posting these. They're very inspirational and instructional. I like hearing what you're thinking as you draw/paint. I would like to see the pallets and such every now and again, and a bit more about how you set up the layers, and why.

Thanks
