  • "Daenerys" - Illustration by samspratt

    Finally finished. Had a little too much fun painting all that loose, whispy, wooshy, hair. Now right back to the art cave to continue research on a poster I’m particularly excited about.

  • Thanks to all the SCAD people who stopped by to listen to my shtick.

    You were all mega nice, recognized a couple of you, and the student work from those who stayed behind was just incredible. I’ll be at Forsyth park tomorrow at 2pm by the main stage thing and anyone is welcome to come on by.

  • I’ve begun upgrading www.samspratt.com with the help of the awesome Jonathan Black. There’s an updated portfolio and client list, added in a FAQ, Press page, Contact form, Gear list of some of the equipment I use or recommend, added more ways to connect to my other sites, the gallery is now more swipe-y and will soon have larger resolution images, and a few other odds and ends added or tweaked. Take a look.

  • “After” - Portrait Contest Winner Illustration by Sam Spratt
    So first, thanks again to everyone who entered my portrait contest, they’re always fun for me to make. Rob, who won the whole shebang, gave me a few vague ideas to get inspired by, and let the rest unfold. He liked aspects of The Grey, and desolate, almost post-apolcalyptic in aesthetic environments — the minimal colors, extreme lighting, and graphic look of 300, and from his FB interests I noted a lot of top notch cinematic movies and TV shows like True Detective and Memento so wanted the pose and composition to give a more in-motion vibe than I usually am keen on. I sketched out a new pose from the references given, used myself and a shirt as a lighting reference, created a vague refinery scene, added small details from cuts and bruises to his girlfriend’s name carved into the butt of the rifle on his back, and began painting.  Thanks for being an awesome subject matter with a hell of a beard, Rob. 
    To everyone else, I’ll be sure to do this again, and you can of course always snag a print of many of my other works: HERE
