WFC demonstration recap

So, as I mentioned last week, Lucas Graciano and I did a relay painting demo to launch this years World Fantasy Con. We met many nice people, mostly via John Picacio's kind introductions, and had a fun time. For our painting demo we did an oil painting based on a thumbnail we whipped up real quick at lunch. Since this was the World Fantasy Con and this years theme was Edgar Allen Poe's 200th birthday, we thought it might be fun to paint Poe as a knight riding on a raven. I know, clever right. We spent about an hour and 20 minutes on it for the demo, alternating every 20, starting with me. We then spent maybe another 40 min on it in the hotel room.

Loving the concept behind this! Great joint effort there~ Wish I could have seen this being done in real life!

Any chance of making a video tutorial sometime in the future?
That would be just amazing, sir.

Mae-Thanks, we had a good time doing it.

Kan- No plans for a video anytime soon, but there is a possibility of a book or two.
