Red Knight slooooooooooowly coming along

Slow (and not terribly steady) progress being made on the red knight painting. It's turning out more purple and gold than I originally had in mind though. But here's to hoping that will make the intended red foreground pop more. It's in that stage where I don't know if I like it or not, but that's when I just need to keep plowing on.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to take a break on this probably in the next few days. The graphic designer working on my next Dreamscapes book has gotten back to me about cover concepts, and I need to get that one done first. Deadlines have precedence over Personal Projects. Here's the initial rough sketch:

Still waiting on feedback from the designers though, so until then I can keep plugging away at the Red Knight. Generally I like working on only one painting at a time. Dividing my energy just gets me really anxious; especially when I'm right about at a point in a painting when I'm uncertain about the colors and I really need to push past that difficult stage.


  1. The Red Knight looks fantastic Steph! sentinel figure standing in a port hole to another dimension ...:)

  2. Wow, Ms. Stephanie. The painting looks amazing so far. I cannot wait to see the finished piece. Your work is an inspiration to me. :]

  3. Do you have any idea when the book will be out? I'm so excited about it!

  4. My guess is either Christmas, or else early next year. But I don't know for sure what Impact's schedule of release is currently.
