New piece. New website!


With all that's been going on at school, I've finally  was able to make a website.
And even though I am still compiling the art in it's own sections I am always updating it.
But since you've haven't seen art here in a while I reward you with a peek at a finished page of the children's book illustration! Enjoy! The full lot will be here soon! The story of this Children's Book is called "Chopsticks" a book originally written and illustrated by Jon Berkeley. This is my visual retelling of the story. My new website is www.joshuaotero.com

The Tortoise and the Hare.. and Zbrush!


Alright. I had just received my critiques this week and they were all fair. For my advanced illustration class I had to do a fairytale. So I chose The Tortoise and the Hare.
As for my Zbrush class I learned a lot. understanding the tools. and dealing with certain issues that came with the program. I had fun doing this. I plan on making more during my off times. Despite the fact that my character's eyes were a bit bulging out of his head, I want to refine this craft a bit more. Enjoy!

Elemental Children! -Fire-

After Editing this one I adjusted some of the background so it's at least a bit more visible, otherwise he'd look like he's sitting in a dark background with no story behind it.
Enjoy! Two more elements left!

Elemental Children! -Earth-

After a while of tweaking I finally am satisfied with this. This was an open assignment for School. I turned it in. But I felt it was missing a bit. so I decided to work on the series.
Enjoy! More of the Other elements to come!

Happy Father's Day!


I bit late I know but the spirit of it is still there!

This was one of my ID's for my dA account. I was rummaging through my old art pieces I post up, then I saw my old piece was like a muddy... scratchboard piece... so I decided to revamp it with my newly acquired skills!

I decided to create at least a bust shot or "waist up" of a character rather than just mug shots. So here she is!

First post in a while...


I have been in a rut lately but I'm making progress of getting out of it. And to show the start I present my digital painting of Ariel from The Little Mermaid®-
Hope it's more refined than my other works. planning on a background too...  I just painted this piece. The drawing belongs to Glen Keane.

Final Project- Book Cover


So I had to venture out and find a book to redo. I found a children's book Called "The Rainy Day Fairy" By Brimax Publishing. I decided to make the Rainy Day Fairy about rainy days and the fairy who enjoys them. I still plan on pushing this a bit further even though this was the last project..  I am no graphic designer.. so I put up text until I can find a more appropriate one.

Valentines Day Project


We had to use the term "Embrace" in any manner taken.. either dark, light, comical, or serious. Me? I chosen Comical... A wife's loving embrace to her husband. too bad V-day was 3 months ago..

Open Project.


I've decided to go more my cartoon route and create a cute warm christmas kinda project.
I still hope it came out ok. I still may continue to refine it though.

Wine/Hot Sauce/ Beer Project



The Project is: Make a label for a hot sauce/ wine/ or beer label.
Here is my Ale and Lager labels... enjoy and drink responsibly.

Rock On! Band Gig poster: Guns N' Roses

Digital Figure Painting...





I tried my hand at digital figure painting... some areas were finished others... not so much. still need to get the hang of painting as a whole... but I found some areas in them to be well painted. enjoy!
