It seems these days you can't hang unless you have a tattoo. As much as I love most tattoo art, I can't bring myself to get one. A friend of mine relates the new tattoo trend to the *Star belly sneetches*. Soon it will be the trend not to have one.

Here is a Z-Brush "W.I.P" I did over the weekend. It is based off a head render Adam Ford did some time back. I feel like I am finally starting to get the look I want from Z-Brush. I am trying to avoid the lumpy bumpy monster-alien look, wich is a lot harder than it looks.

Today is technically the longest day of the year. I was told it has something to do with the summer solstice or something like that. So to celebrate I participated in the daily lunch study today at work. We get an hour to paint a in either Photoshop or Painter a copy of a photo or another painting. Todays paint study was Khilkov by Repin.

I did this painting for my mom for mothers day. I will post another version as soon as I can get a better photo. The photo reference was taken when she was 24 in Virginia City Nevada while panning for gold. I guess this was the type of place my parents would go on dates when they were first married. I haven't done a portrait like this in a long time and it felt good to make mistakes and mix paint again. I made myself mix these color charts for practice.
The first chart is the UGLY pallet (Titanium white, Yellow Ochre, Terra Rosa, Ivory Black).
The next chart is the Primary pallet, or Impressionist pallet (Cadmium Yellow Light, Alizarin Crimson, Thalo Blue).
The last Chart was the Primary Pallet with Iron Oxide Red in place of Alizarin Crimson.
It looks like boring stuff but I really like making these charts and experimenting with color pallets.

Some one asked me once why my blog was titled "PowerMustache", when there wasn't any Power or Mustache to it at all. Truth is "Power mustache" is the name of a Vandals song, and I thought it sounded tough. But in order to set things right with the title I am going to post a little more power and a lot more mustache. So for my first in the mustache series is none other than the King of the mustache jungle, Frank "Disco boy" Zappa.
Disco boy! run to toilet and comb your hair.
Disco boy! pucker your lip, and check your shoulders,
cause some dandruff might be hiding there.

This here is a woman dressed in an Arabic style of dancing garb (Belly dancer). It was an interesting study due to the many types of materials in her out fit. Her shirt was black velvet, and to any one who has tried to render velvet, it is like a dog and pony show.
