Mondays are good

Had a productive Monday. I usually do. Sometimes it's so hard to get motivated and stick with a painting if the deadline isn't in a week or worse the next day. I'm trying to figure out why I have good days and bad days. I'm accumulating a bunch of tips for myself. Any other tips for motivation are totally welcome(not including coffee, got that one down pat;)

Well, I'd say your up a creek, cause my best motivator has always been looking at other artists that crush me with talent, and your stuff is so tight, not sure if it will help haha. Speedpainting also gets me going, or painting directly in a sketchbook.

On the other hand, I'm a lazy ass who barely gets my sketch-a-days done.

Oh, and this one is really coming along since I saw it in the illustration lab. Did you tone it, or is that warm lightning on it?

I read an interview where a bloke who keeps a few paintings going at any one time, so when he doesn't feel like working on one there's always the others.

May be worth trying?

really nice piece here Eric!! Keep it up man, very inspiring to see you doing work like this and the narrative is very interesting!! There is information in the piece, but so much to where it is specific, people could take all kinds of concepts and ideas from this. I could see alot of people liking this piece!! Great man!!

I do not know why the others do not talk about your "detail" it is amazing, the girl look so real. Even with the step by step I do not understand what makes the difference!
