Livestream Overpaint #1 by RhysGriffiths
Livestream Overpaint #1
Hey guys,

Here's the result of my first livestream! Thanks to everyone who dropped by and said hi, I really appreciated it! For everyone who's work I didn't get to do, I'll save that for next time (and hopefully have my mic working properly by then too).

Thanks to Lukas Kuhn :iconundercurrent-32: for letting me do a paintover of his artwork Curious Cottage and to post it here! The bottom version is his original piece and the top version is how it looked at the end of the stream.

The main points I had for Lukas were to have a clear separation between light and shadow, control the level of detail of photos when bringing them into the work by simplifying them into just a few planes, and not to be afraid to push areas into high contrast with saturated midtones for a rich, lifelike finish.
Keeping the contrast, level of detail, and saturation the highest around the focal points really helped bring this piece together.

Hopefully you guys can join me again next time - follow me for future updates :)

Hey guys, come and join me in 3 hours at where I'll be doing some live paintovers and answering questions!

Hi everyone!

I finally got working on my Macbook Pro, and I'm ready to do some paintovers!
I'll be streaming this Sunday at 5 PM Western Standard time.. which is 7 pm for us Aussies, 11 am if you're in Germany, 10 am on Sunday if you're in London, and well.... around 5 am or earlier for some states in America (sorry.. can't please everyone :p). Don't worry though, if you miss the stream I'll post a link to the videos the next day.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their artworks for a paintover, I got some really cool pieces sent in and hopefully I can teach you guys a lot! 
Also, if you missed my last journal but you'd like me to do a paintover of your work to help you improve, you're still welcome to send in a picture to me (either note me with a link to your work, or e-mail me at

Hopefully I'll see you all then! (at

Shattered RPG - 'The Grey Shade' Tavern by RhysGriffiths
Shattered RPG - 'The Grey Shade' Tavern
Hey everyone! Here's some work I did recently for a Tabletop RPG game called Shattered RPG. A very inspiring crew to work with - I had a lot of fun on this one. Check out their site to see some more amazing art from the game:

The characters are based loosely off some designs by Alexandre Chaudret :iconeyardt: (another amazing artist)
I'm also working on another concept illustration for the game now. Hopefully I'll be able to post that in the coming weeks!

Stay tuned the next few days as I'll be doing a paintover session on livestream - check my journal for details if you want me to do a paintover of one of your works :)

Hi everyone!

Heres a sneak peak of a painting I'm working on - I'm going to stream the rest of this painting in about 1 weeks time.. Feel free to tune in, watch and learn, and ask questions!
I'll also do some paintovers if you guys like?
If you want me to show you how you can improve.. send me your best work (to my email -, title:PAINTOVER ) and I will try and get through as many as I can. Open to all skill levels - no one is above or below critique! Would love to do some paintovers for some higher skill level artists too. 
I'll find a platform that keeps recordings saved in case you guys miss your paintover and want to rewatch it later.
Let me know what you think :)
