Welcome to canvas and paints, I hope you like what you find here. This is a step by step account of the paintings I do, from pencil outline to finished piece. I mainly paint video game images to comission, to contribute to raising funds for 2 charities, Oxfam and Child's Play.
I can now post pictures of my Secret Santee's painting it was for someone in California. After some serious stalking (well, googling his name, looking on his FB, looking on StreetView and his You tube account) I discovered he'd been playing/posting about SMBW.
