Work in Progress!
These are some ideas I'm exploring related to a new oil painting I am planning.
Which design do you like best?

Preliminary design study for textures to be used on a painting I'm planning. These shapes are from a Klimt painting. They work so well there I'm trying to understand his approach.

The name "Orion Shipworks" refers to the creation of 3D digital starships and vehicles. I originally created this account to display that type of work.
However, I also enjoy creating traditional artwork as well. Some of it is displayed here:…
My gallery here on DA has turned into my main online gallery. So it now includes a mix of traditional artwork as well as 3D digital creations.

So, why do I have two such different interests? Well, my professional training is in the field of computer system design. Part of my brain thinks like an engineer.
Maybe that's why I enjoy designing futuristic-looking vehicles using digital art. In addition I also have a great interest in aesthetics.
I'm particularly intrigued with the design and composition of drawings and paintings, for example how the viewer's eye is directed by shapes and lines.
As you will see, lately I've been focusing on the female figure, specifically trying to integrate the figure into the scene - such as an interior or landscape.

I've always been interested in art, but spent my career designing computers. Now I'm doing all sorts of artwork. I first came here to display my sci-fi fantasy creations. But now my traditional art is here as well. Feel free to leave feedback.
