HAPPY 2013! and Epic gamesHi DA friends,
I know it's been awhile and it's shameful that I have not updated or posted in several months. A couple of personal and professional things happened that has occupied my time.
The personal is personal and I keep for myself. I can say on a professional tip is that I've been working as a senior concept artist for Epic games since August 2012. I'm very fortunate to be there as I'm in the company of some of the most talented and brilliant game developers and artist in the world. Everyday I learn something new or see something amazing.
This is no excuse for not doing my own art as I will still do that and try to post when I can. I've missed the community here and seeing all the rising talented artist here.
Happy New year all and lets keep doing more kick ass art in 2013!
New Game of Thrones "Lord Snow" printHi DA,
I usually don't like to plug available prints as they are listed in the images pages. Since I've gotten a few request for this one and a few others, thought I would let you all know
that I have made my Game of Thrones painting available as a print on Deviant. The painting was an original commission for a board game and was done with traditional oil paints.
Thats a rare in istelf as I work digitally 90% of the time.
here's the direct link

The Art of J.P. Targete
personal blog: http://www.targeteart.com/default.htm
from the book:
"From the depths of my imagination and from all the media I was absorbing I was able to to create anything I wanted with graphite and paper. I hadn't even hit puberty yet but I was creating worlds a child should never create. Screaming beasts, barbarians, savage amazons and alien worlds .
There was no "Mouse" there was no "Bunny" there was only my world, and it was some times scary as hell. "

PE: Sketches and sketchbooksSketches and sketchbooks
Big, marvellous, elaborate, finished paintings and drawings you can see in various stunning galleries on dA and outside dA, while they require time and can occupy artist's workspace even for months, in a lot of cases make a small percentage of created pictures lying around the creator's desk. Sketches aren't just noted concepts or a stage in preparing an artwork - a couple of sketches a day can be the most influential source of improving your skills.
You have probably been through this more than once - far from your room, you got struck with a brilliant idea. In diffrent circumstances you'd most likely rush to transfer it onto paper or canvas, but well, that might be not so easy in a classroom or on a bus. It can be difficult even if you're home - how about more than one idea at once? Using a sketchbook as a notepad for any concepts is by far

Construction paper, paper bags, tissue paper, mar

JP Targete illustration dvds availableIn his first of three DVDs, J.P. takes you on an exciting creative and technical journey showing you how he begins a fantasy illustration, Dark Riders, purely from imagination. He covers the early stages of his process, from the initial idea to thumbnails, concept design and the final color sketch. J.P. also discusses how character personality, costumes, weapons and action poses affect the narrative of the final illustration. You will learn the creative process of composing your thumbnails, and how to use segments of your designs for future reference as you get closer to the final dynamic illustration. Over the course of the lecture, J.P. covers the uses of traditional media like markers, acrylic and oil paints, discussing the advantages of each.
Over 2 hours of lecture.
