Be sure to check out the wonderful work of Terrill Welch!
 
TRAIL ALONG THE RIDGE
Commentary by Sam Juilano
 
Terrill Welch's arresting impressionistic oil painting TRAIL ALONG THE RIDGE showcases a domestic refuge, one that is ideal for meditation and creative inspiration.  There is a pneumatic quality to the seemingly clandestine vantage point overlooking mountains and a wooden valley that would surely give pause for sensory reflections.  The glorious blue sky, bright textures, summer shadows and joyful ambiance define the scene, yet there is a mystique in the central almost intimidating image of the Douglas Fir, which is rooted tenuously near the edge of the ridge, a sitting duck for a storm, yet evincing a look of having survived its share of atmospheric ravages.
 
Everyone can lay claim to a place and a setting they revered since childhood - and the experience is a kind of “Stopping by Woods on a Lovely Day,” when everything comes to a halt, and there is a fusion with nature.  Welch's painting isn't without a more somber context - the tree's slant suggests that such days are in limited number, and are mainly available during late spring and summer, yet there is scenic bliss and inspiration, not only attested by the creator, but to be seen by generous brush strokes of color and a wonderfully serene landscape.  It would be hard to fathom that a hike up this trail wouldn't stoke the happiest of memories and expectations. This is Ms. Welch in radiant mode, and it would bring any room to life, transporting its onlookers to an idyllic hamlet in this island paradise.
 
This 30 x 24 inch oil on canvas painting is part of the upcoming “West Coast Landscape as Home” solo exhibit of paintings by Terrill Welch opening April 4, 2015.

When it comes to Star Wars, the words devotion and passion don’t even begin to describe the fandom. Star Wars fans go the extra mile to create things inspired by their favorite characters or scenes, even if they only exist on screen for just a few seconds. aA few months ago when The Force Awakens trailer debuted, the internet went crazy with fan tributes and speculation. One of the biggest takeaways was the ball droid, a.k.a. BB-8. This droid see...

Indeed, very brave pilots. A lot of inventiveness and resourcefulness during those times.

This is for an aviation art oil painting that I'm working on. When I don't have a plastic model kit to use as reference and don't have enough photographic references to get the best angle I want, I build a model in 3D. I don't have a powerful computer system at home to render off full animations, but I can model and render on a small scale. I'm working the best of both worlds. Here's a short spotlight where I'm doing some basic sculpting of the cockpit coaming on my PT-22 Recruit. I've already created the tubing that goes around the rim of the cockpit - but I don't leave it at that. I push and pull the points and polygons until I get the shaping I desire. From here, I'll also be doing some minor sculpting (in another video) to get the creases of the leather. This is real-time play of my working in Cinema 4D on the cockpit coaming. I'll duplicate this object for the front cockpit and make the necessary adjustments to the structure to fit that cockpit rim as the rim is slightly different shape due to the curvature of the fuselage. https://youtu.be/LSRK_D5ScRM

Continuing on my Ryan PT-22 Recruit 3D build. Again, this my 3D virtual model build that I will use as my angle and composition reference for my oil painting. I build and use physical scale plastic models for reference, but when I don't have one handy then I turn to building a model in 3D, specifically in Cinema 4D. I got the basic plane (fuselage, wings, empennage, landing gear, cockpit cut-outs) built, and now comes the slow downs - the details. I've been working on the wing, tail and stab ribbing, and now I'm working on the open cockpit area. To make the cockpit coaming, I've created a spline that follows the cutout and then create a circle, then put both of those into a sweep. Since I work in symmetry (working on one side only), I put the cockpit coaming sweep into a symmetry and adjust and voilà! cockpit coaming. All I do is duplicate the rear coaming to the front and move the structure to the front cockpit, adjusting the spline as needed. Most likely I will keep as is when I texture it, but serious 3D modelers will actually go so far as to hand-sculpt objects to make them have creases, folds, etc... For me, 3D modeling is just as fun as physical scale modeling, but the nice thing is that I can eventually work this up to such detail to sell it in a 3D modeling market such as Turbosquid.

Working on the empennage and wings of the Ryan PT-22 Recruit 3D model. Still a ways to go. The gear and tail wheel are very rough at this stage, and I'm still working on the ribbing area.
