Brian Stelfreeze painting demonstration

Comments (1) inspiration, painting

I was talking to some artists today about Brian Stelfreeze. I am a huge fan of his and I pretty much owe my career to him. He gave me so many good critiques and such amazing advice back when I was first starting out. I would never have made it this far without his patience and willingness to share. He has an amazing gift for cutting through an artists personal excuses. I visited him every year for about 5 years, and each time its like he took a sledgehammer to my roadblocks. He’s rare in that he’s able to do that. Most artists can tell whats wrong, they just can’t explain what to do about it. He has a gift for it. The guy is such a class act!

The last time he was at that show, I was lucky to not only be on some panels with him but even got to share a table with him. I’ve heard many other artists say the same thing about how much he helped them. He’s just a great guy. Anyways, I just ran across some old photos of him doing a painting demonstration the last time he was at Aggiecon in 2006. I have photos from previous years, but I think I’ll have to find the originals and scan them in. I learned more from being able to watch him work. Which is why I always do demonstrations whenever I work with new artists. I feel very fortunate, looking back now, that I was able to cross paths with him. Maybe one of these days it’ll happen again, lol.

    When I first started seeing him do these demos, he was using some animation cell paint called “Chromacolor” from a company in Canada. I ordered them online, and they worked pretty well. In these photos, he was using “Golden” airbrush paints. I’ve since started using those in my paints too. They’re really bright colors. Very good for painting if you water them down a bit.
