Four Alien Landscapes

acrylic on paper, click to enlarge


  1. Sorry if this has been asked before: Will Road of Knives Be compiled and published at some point?


  2. Neat, reminds me of part of the gigastructure. How is the Dark Heresy game going BTW?

  3. CU grads represent! I particularly like the two on the left--they remind me of circuit boards, but not the garden-variety electrically conductive ones. Any plans for them?

  4. Is that something like a frottage technique on the top right? I am not referring to the sexual act.

    nope, what I did was:

    1. I painted a bunch of geometric shapes on unprimed (white) paper

    2. then painted -over- everything I just painted in opaque black (completely covering up the painting,--so it's an all black painting but it's thick enough that it still leaves some impasto)

    3. then I painted over the whole thing with a thin white wash--this wash clung to the outlines of the original geometric patterns, making the "archaelogical"-looking shapes.

    4. Then I painted in the black and green around that.

  6. This is a smart idea. Thanks.
