Welcome to the 4th official Megastructure Book Project Update, a visual encyclopedia of scifi megastructures!
I just passed a major personal milestone on the project, and completed my very last painting for the book! My 32nd painting is done, the Standford Torus, which I had left for last since it was going to be one of the most difficult.
So all the art is done then? Not quite, but we're close. As I mentioned earlier, I have a team of guest artists who are contributing a number of pieces of artwork to the book. All of them are working hard to get those last images done. So we currently stand at 91% art complete, and we're still on track to get all the artwork done by Christmas. Over the next 2 months I will polish the text in the book while I wait for those final images, and then the second rough layout starts in January.
So more progress is being made! Thanks again for following along, next update should be to announce all the artwork is done.

Just posted this text / video lesson called "Compositional Weight", discussing how to balance your paintings visually using contrast to draw the eye. Hope you find it helpful!

Had a bunch of people over the weekend asking me what a Pitchbook was. So wrote an article on the subject. In short, it's a book with images and words you use to sell an IP to a film or videogame executive. The more detailed answer:

Added a photobash picture pack from Arches National Park in Utah to Artstation and Gumroad. Great for concept art, matte paintings and general reference.
Used these photos extensively for many of my "The Story of Inc" artwork.
