Salvation Finding the Light by Quinlan Powers
This is my son's book that he self-published on Amazon. I did  write-up on it at tinyurl.com/yccputwb and the eBook can be found at tinyurl.com/y9gsnzts. If you are into fantasy and science fiction, this is for you. Check it out and let me know what you think.  The book should be available in paperback this week.

Thanks,
-Steve

How to Colorize a Sketch
I took a sketch that I did a while back and printed it out on Bristol paper and colorized it with Water Color and Colored Pencils.

NOTE - I may own all of these, but I have my favorites, which are depicted in my videos. You do not have to use what I use, nor do you have to by the entire sets.  Most of my sketching is done with graphite and colored with water colors of various brands and quality.  The tools do not make the artist, the artist uses the tools to their full ability make something out of nothing. Keep it simple, enjoy yourself and find out what works for you, and most of all just create.

How To Paint a Rose in Gouache

The title is somewhat misleading.  Though the Rose is painted in gouache, I also used transparent watercolors and colored pencils making this mixed-media.

Steven Powers (SMP)
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I am a freelance Concept Artist and Writer. I believe the painting must tell a story and invoke a feeling in the audience.

I'm a self-taught artist and through the years I have been a musician, a fighter, a soldier, machinist, salesman, and a father. I have jumped out of airplanes; written songs and short stories; hold degrees in Web Design and Network Administration; extensive background in communications and computer science. I have always loved movies and animation, which eventually led me into video editing, then into Digital Arts. Though I have always been able to draw, I unfortunately had no official training other than "Art Appreciation" and "Technical Drawing" courses. So through a lot of time, effort, tutorials and guidance from others, I have been able to fill in some of the missing pieces.

Eventually I realize that throughout the years I have been building skills that are an asset to digital artists. My mechanical skills are a great asset in 3D modeling and concept art; Athletics and understanding of movement has helped with animation; Musical, Audio/Video skills are required for even the shortest animation; and while being a avid movie watcher, I had been training my eye. Art is a life long journey ...there will always be something new to learn.

If you have any questions please contact me at steven.powers.smp@gmail.com,

Your welcome.  I hope to have a couple of design sketches up shortly [traditional medai].  Been busy lately with life.  So times I'm more productive than others. Thanks for stopping by.

I may not have time to do a real project, but I do keep a mechanical pencil and pen in my pocket and doodle on spare paper or small sketch book ...if I like an idea that I sketch I will scan or take a pic with my cell.  I was on a call for over an hour or two at a customer's site and doodled on a large cardboard box.  It turned into a mural by the time I was done.  Not everything was great but I still took about 4 snapshots to document it.
