Amazing Spider-Man 2

This is a drawing I did for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie licensing art, but I wasn't able to do the finished color rendering because Marvel needed me to start working on Guardians of the Galaxy artwork. So we brought in artist and friend Tyler Walpole to help. I think he did a finished color version based on my drawing.

Insanity of an Artist

[Voice in Head #1] “The job is finished, turned in, and approved. Don’t make that correction. It will take you an hour.”
[Voice in Head #2] “But we can make it better!”
[Voice in Head #1] “It’s going to be published the other way anyway.”
[Voice in Head #2] “But we can make it better!”
[Voice in Head #1] “Even if you post it online, nobody in the world will notice the difference.”
[Voice in Head #2] “But we’ll notice. We’ll know.”

Ultron art

Here's a piece of Ultron art I did last year for Age of Ultron merchandise. I figure it's safe to show it now. :)

My Intro to Digital Painting course is now open for Enrollment!

Intro to Digital Painting- Jump into the world of digital painting with 20-year veteran illustrator Scott Johnson!  This intensive course tackles both sides of digital art. Each week you will learn basic art lessons that can be applied to any medium, as well as digital techniques specific to painting in Photoshop with a pressure sensitive tablet.

Here are the course details: http://www.comicsexperience.com/course/introduction-to-digital-painting/

"I had the the fantastic opportunity to take Scott Johnson’s Digital Painting through Comics Experience last year and was blown away with not only his extensive knowledge of digital painting and color theory, but also his ability to effectively pass on his knowledge in an online classroom environment. I am a professional instructional designer and teacher by day, and I was especially impressed with how Scott structured his class to facilitate learning. I had always know he was an amazingly talented digital painter, but it turns out he is also a fantastic instructor! I learned a lot from the class and have continued to use and enjoy the digital painting techniques I learned from Scott for personal projects and freelance work. Great class!"
