The Negotiator

Preliminary Drawing for The Negotiator by Sam Flegal

As I was gearing up for Illuxcon this year I looked over my portfolio and realized some of my older images no longer represented my skill set. I’ve been learning so much so quickly that every 6 months to a year I look back on my work and realize how bad it was. This is a good position to be in, because it means I’m learning. However when trying to put together seven to ten of my best pieces, deciding what stays in and what goes can be hard. Coupled with the fact that a lot of my newer paintings are under NDA, which means I have to get permission to show them in my portfolio otherwise I cannot show them until the product they are attached to has been released.

When faced with this situation I also noticed that I had a week and a half that was currently open in my production schedule. So I decided the best way to handle the problem was to make a new painting, just for my portfolio and me.

The criteria I gave myself was:

Fantasy Adventure, leaning towards Dungeons and Dragons

Tells a clear story

Includes a big fat Ogre King

… and so I created The Negotiator

The Negotiator - Oil Painting by Sam Flegal

The Oil Painting is 18 x 24 inches.

I hope you enjoy it, and remember…

… Stay Strange!
