This is a piece that I completed a few days ago. My client wanted me to make an abstract landscape, somewhat similar to “The Artist from a Distance” collage. So now I just need to frame it and deliver it to its new home. I’m also beginning to do a bit of work on my first chinchilla portrait. Chinchillas sure are cute!

Anyway, I’m off to run a few errands. And I can’t believe it’s almost December and before long it will be 2012. Wow, it still blows my mind how fast a year can creep by.

And here’s the completed collage of the smiling dog. Looking back at all the previous commission work I’ve done, it looks like dog portraits have been the most popular subject. When it comes to tackling pet portraits, I’ve found that it helps a lot if the subject is a happy-looking pup.

Test Animation of Birdy

Here’s the latest progress on the Birdy animation – a collaboration I’m working on with my brother Brendan Coyle. This video is just a test animation for the project.

And to break down some of the textured components used for this piece, here are the collages I created:

I made a couple collages for possible backgrounds – this is the one we went with.

Here’s the bark collage texture used for the tree.

My brother took these collages and either wrapped them around 3d models or put them on different planes.

I’m thinking I’ll create another birdy for this guy to interact with and then we can create more of a scene. We shall see…
