Pelagio Palagi, Unfinished Portrait, c. 1815
I love this; he looks like he has a cat on his head.
…I’m honestly suprised nobody’s finished it so that he does.

"I hate people who write off other people’s talents just because of their taste in movies. I left film-school for that very reason. The first thing the teacher told us was “If you want to make Terminator 2, leave now” and I was like, fuck you man. There could be a kid sat in the corner disheartened because Terminator 2 is the movie he wants to make, that’s his vision and here’s the teacher telling him he can’t do that. He had no fucking right, none of us do. Besides, I think Terminator 2 is a pretty kick-ass movie."
Paul Thomas Anderson (via labise)
This was art school in a nutshell, for me.
Yeah, I definitely encountered some of this in film school…fortunately not quite as much as I’d feared I would, but it was still present and still annoying. And seriously fuck that professor, Terminator 2 is a fantastic movie.
San Francisco-based artist Jeremy Mann lives and works in San Francisco where he executes these sublime, moody cityscapes using oil paints. To create each work he relies on a wide range of techniques including surface staining, the use of solvents to wipe away paint, and the application of broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer. The resulting paintings are dark and atmospheric, urban streets seemingly drenched in rain and mystery.
I would own these paintings in a heartbeat.
Here’s some background paintings I did for the TV show Tron Uprising in 2011 and 2012. It was an honor to work with Rob Valley, Alberto, Charlie and the art team: Annis, Joe, Daniel, Joon, Robh, Jojo, Todd. The list goes on and on. Good times!
God I love the concept art for this franchise.
Clu taking Tron to see Abraxas, before he goes right ahead and turns Tron into Rinzler. Because Jalen was just practice and Clu just wants to let Tron know what he’s got in mind for him.
The product of many a chat with ExpositionFairy about the horror that is Clu practicing on Abraxas, and also her bribery that if I finished this, she would write it. And who could say no to that, honestly?
I’m just going to leave this here and go to bed, because I have poked at it way too much already and I have to accept that I will never get it QUITE RIGHT (Backgrounds, how work?), but…I’m happy with it for the most part ^_^ Here’s hoping y’all like it too.
Oops look what needed to be back on my dash.
(Here’s the fic that goes with it!)
Remember when I had other fandoms besides Transformers? Yeah, me neither. However, it turns out other people do. I told Plurk I’d work on some fanart for the first (couple) fandom(s) of mine people listed and this was one of them.
Blame Sharn and Expo for this. Also Winzler. In fact, this WIP is only uploaded because Winzler told me to.
ANYWAY, ENJOY YOUR NOT-TERRIBLY-ORIGINAL fanart. The ghost is angry because they left candy all over the floor.
ROFL I’m sorry but the Halloween decorations make the pic
