  • Rebelle 7 – Zorn Palette

    The “real” color mixing of Rebelle 7 is one of it’s best features. This is why I like working with it. As advertised the software faithfully replicates the experience of working with real paints – be it watercolor, acrylic, or oils. (It also has pastels, charcoal, pencil and inks). I can use it to mix…

  • Rebelle 7 Curbing the Learning Curve

    I worked out that if you do color pallets and brush tests then export them as an image file you can then import them as references to help with knowing the effect of a brush or a color mix. This has been pretty useful for finding the right tools for the job and also for…

  • Rebelle 7 Anatomy Study

    My first real go with Rebelle 7 on a semi-serious study. I’m finding the flat oil brush to be the most useful. Especially when set to blend. It’s kind of like sculpture the way it lets you move the paint around to make forms. It’s really is like using real oil paint – except that…

  • One Hundred Hands

    One Hundred Hands

    The last couple of weeks I’ve been drawing hands. I always feel like I need to draw better and never make the time to do it. I have always liked drawing hands but my output is often pretty sketchy (pun intended). I have a book by George Bridgeman called A Hundred Hands which is one…

  • More Gaps

    This is more concept art for a protagonist in the new project called The Gap. Okapi Boy – I have always loved Okapi’s. They are shy and remained hidden from the world in the deepest parts of the jungle until they were discovered in the 50’s. Beautiful Zebra like patterns on skin like a Deer.…

  • Preparing to Draw

    Hi Gene here… This post is about preparing for a good drawing. Drawing is the fundamental skill for all (or most) forms of art. I’d like to be better at it but I really only just get by… But still you have to prepare to do your best otherwise you are setting yourself up to…

  • Animating the Running Dog with Unity and GIMP

    I finally got the game I started in November into some semblance of how I wanted it to look.  The running dog animation anyway.  Still playing with different backgrounds but this one is sure “fun”. It took a long time to get all the dog actions done drawing each one by hand and getting a…

(BTW the audio is from our latest game NumBlocks on the Play Store and was done by our Audio Technician Baron Von Hummbolt (not a real person). We are currently looking for BETA…
