Pic from a current commission

Another cold morning in Michgan has me running to the coffee pot. This week I've been busy with commission work. The pic I've posted is from a work in progress, a digitally colored painting I'm doing for John Cacciotti (thanks again John!). This image was captured from the scan of an inked drawing. The next stage will be to build a background in Z brush and Painter, which will be cloned in behind her. Finally I'll paint the character herself. There are a lot of steps in this process, but the results make it worth the effort.

First Day at The Studio

It's a cold November morning in Michigan and I'm blogging. I'm amazed what I can get done under the influence of coffee.

If you don't know me already, I'm Susan Van Camp, a fantasy, science fiction and furry artist. I've had art published in quite a few games, including Car Wars, Legends of the Five Rings and Magic the Gathering. I'm also primary designer of Dragon Storm, a card based role playing game. I dabble in many fields but everything ultimately comes back to art; when my neurons were making their earliest connections, a bias towards visual intelligence is what they chose. Nerdspeak translation: I like pictures.

Pictures are part of what will appear here in the future: Preveiws of upcoming projects, works in progress and experiments in different media. I also plan updates on what I am up to: Conventions, commissions and comics. Keep an eye on this spot and please comment freely. Being new to blogging, I'm not not sure what information would be most useful; feed back will help me create better posts.

That's it for this morning. If November winds are crawling up your spine, wrap up and grab another cup of joe. It works for me.
