ACTIVATE!

okay, so i was lying about the WAZARD update (again). but i wasnt lying about the paintings update. SURPRISE!


you guys may remember me mentioning something about a show coming up in march. a relatively big show. if you remember that, then you might remember this painting way back when. it never really looked finished the first time i posted it, but after a few additions and tweaks here and there ive finally come up with something i like.

i dont remember if ive mentioned this before, but the theme of this show is a collection of lightning gods from around the world. now before i get any further, im only planning on playing with four of them. i know there are more, but i cant paint that many paintings. maybe for a next show. the one above is the chinese god, Lei Gong. the one below is only halfway done, but you might be able to guess which one by examining his lightning sidekick. i mean, if you are up to date with your lightning gods.


there are two more gods left. probably the two most obvious lightning gods out there. like the lightning god celebrities, you could say. then to accompany each god painting will be a smaller painting of one or two of their "shocking" lady friends (lol i suck at puns).

march isnt very far away. in fact, it is frighteningly close. i should really get back to work.
