Live Wedding Painting + Some Older One Hour Paintings

I was recently commissioned to do a live painting of a couples wedding ceremony.
I had no real evidence that I could complete the task, besides showing my post of my One Hour Paintings. Luckily, it was the exact style they were looking for... and they were willing to trust me if I felt confident enough.
The final product.
 The day was June 15th, and location, Greystone Fields in Gibsonia, PA.
 Here is a picture of my set-up.

I did most of the work there, but I took it home to add a few more hours worth of painting.
The happy newily wed couple!

 The second half of this post is just going to be older one hour paintings I haven't posted here yet.
This one is actually a one hour painting I did digitally in Photoshop!
I gave it restrictions by only using one brush, no UNDOs, and I painted it all on one layer.

And the one below ISN'T a one hour painting... just a watercolor landscape I did one evening.

Character Designs (Outlaw)

Just doing a little character design with watercolor.
Here are some more concept pieces for my "Outlaw world."
My "Sand Slug" concept.
You might remember him from this older piece I did.

Then there is another main character I have been developing...
I've been leaning towards having the story told from his perspective instead of the Outlaw.
There are a lot of ideas stirring around for this project... I am taking it one day at a time, but I am feeling good about it!

(Baby) It's You [Poster and Film]

Out of the blue, I decided to make a little promo poster for a project I was lucky enough to be a part of a few summers ago. If you're involved in the stop motion community, you've probably already seen this video.
“(Baby) It’s You!” for The Boys, co-directed with Jeremy Galante and Brad Pattullo.

This is the music video that I had the opportunity to animate shots on with my teachers, Brad Pattullo and Jeremy Galante! Directed by David Cowles.
Here is the only picture of me working on set... haha!
