From pen and ink illustrations and logos to lush fantasy paintings, I’ve a wide range of experience in art that captures the imagination and imprints on the memory.
Look to petervintonjr.com for all your superhero, fairy, monster, wizard, dragon, pirate, space pilot, and (of course) Amazon warrior-goddess needs.

HOWREFERENCESWORK

POR SIEMPRE!

Reference is important for LEARNING.  If you know you can’t seem to get something right, reference it.  
You’re ability to recall how something works without the use of reference is what you’re trying to achieve.  Don’t mistake this as saying “You always need reference.”
It doesn’t mean you suddenly stop drawing from imagination as a result.  In fact, now you can do more thanks to have LEARNED from reference.

Fun fact: Artists are always learning. They never stop. 

Seriously. It still needs skill to draw even if you have a reference. Its not a cheat. At five years old, if they gave you a reference of a persons face, could you draw it perfectly?

UPDATE on my digital colouring in progress. Aiming for an April 19th completion; hopefully everyone understands the significance of that date (and I am most emphatically NOT referring to 1993, 1995, OR 2013).

My all-time favourite piece by this artist.  I never get tired of looking at it nor hunting for yet one more layer of storytelling.  Magnificent!

For my “newbie” followers —welcome Trent and Heather and Sheri and Ashley and Barbara, and a heartfelt thank-you for joining! I’ve no idea what these characters’ names are or what their story is: are they lovers, siblings, rivals, teammates? Are they about to spar, or team up, battle to the death? You decide. Let me know what you come up with!

Syd Barrett - Acrylic on canvas, 16” x 20”

Fellow artists/illustrators: it is henceforth a firmly established scientific fact that listening to any early-era Pink Floyd (i.e., any album that preceded Dark Side of the Moon) REALLY propels along your art project. Seriously. Something about listening to those gentlemen still finding their way musically, and the lingering Syd Barrett influence. I’m making FAR quicker progress on a current piece ever since I cued up “Piper At The Gates of Dawn” and “A Saucerful of Secrets.” Give it a try! There’s my shared hint for this week. You’re welcome.

Creatures of Doctor Who. New for Temple Con, The Silence. I finally remembered.

All four of these look great!

Happy National Gorilla Suit Day everyone.  

The way I see it, any holiday that honors the warped brilliance of the late Don Martin is by definition a worthy holiday.

Happy Birthday Boris Vallejo!   If my illustrative skills ever approach just one-twentieth of your talent and vision, I will have considered my artistic direction in life to have been a worthwhile one. Enjoy your day sir, and thanks for the never-ending inspiration!
