The Great City of Gateway

New Fantasy World by Sean Andrew Murray!

Hello again El Moochadores! I recently found out that fantasy Artist Sean A. Murray has launched a Patreon for his magical world: Gateway. Gateway is a vast exploration of Murray’s imagination featuring a world full of strange creatures, magic, and (of course) some of the best illustration work I’ve ever seen. Here’s a quote from his Patreon:


Gateway is full of diverse peoples and creatures, amazing buildings, locations and landmarks, and brimming with wondrous magic. It’s inspired by the real cities of our own world; stories await you around every corner and characters from vastly different locales come together to live in an exciting patchwork.

It’s also a place where adventure and intrigue happens due to the rich complexity of environments, cultures and factions. This vast city is a fantasy world in and of itself.

Now don’t get me wrong, I think Sean A. Murray is a brilliant illustrator and I want to see him be successful in creating his fantasy world, but I’m not posting about this out of sheer altruism. You see, I’m a Sean Murray too, and I love to illustrate. Now, I am no where near as talented as Sean A. Murray, but the quickening is soon upon us! That epic time when all the artist Sean Murrays of the world will come together and battle to the death! The last remaining Sean Murray (probably me since I’m like the Kurgan of Sean Murrays…) will get all the artistic skill and knowledge from all the fallen Sean Murrays. So it is vital you support Gateway and help Sean A. Murray advance his skill while I go and sharpen my Katana. There can only be one…

Check out a short promotional video below, along with a few sample images from Gateway, but also go visit the site to see the vast amount of beautiful fantasy illustrations! Also, check out the Patreon (link above) to learn about contributor benefits and awards!

Hey Bub!

New Print on Murray Brothers Creative!

Hello El Moochadores! This is just a real quick post to announce a new print on Murray Brothers Creative. Hey Bub, is a Wolverine fan piece done in vector art featuring classic (1980’s) Wolverine in his brown and yellow costume. Illustration work was done by Atomic Moo’s Chudd, and you can buy the print on 8.5″ x 11″ or 5″ x 7″ (mini-print) sizes!

“Snikt!”

Chudd Sketches

Hello again, El Moochadores! Yeah, post have been kind of sparse lately, but that’s only because life’s been kicking me around as if I were a giant hacky sack. However, there seems to be a calm in the storm, so I wanted to post about some future prints we have on the way. Recently Chudd has been doing a lot of sketch work, and I’m really proud of the results. It took some doing (and a small fist fight) but I finally convinced Chudd to make some prints of the work he’s done. We’re still in the process of getting high quality scans of the work, producing new pieces, and formatting them, but I thought I would give you a preview of some of the sketches that will soon be available on Murraybroscreative.com as prints and mini-prints. If Chudd keeps up with the “evil-eye” thing, we may even produce a small art book!

Anyways, check out the art below and keep checking back for updates as prints are made available!

Cheers!

Iterative Drawing – The Fastest Way to Improve

Hello El Moochadores! ‘just a real quick post this morning. Since getting back into Atomic Moo, I’ve wanted to start to share more of the practices, tutorials, and other free resources that I encounter online. Being a creative professional is a very real goal of mine and I would like to make that more of the push behind this site and what Chudd and I are trying to accomplish. Y’know, getting paid for making cool stuff. So check out this video by youtuber Sycra, who discuss the idea of iterative drawing. Basically, drawing without reference and learning to stylize.

Though I think this video would be very much improved with a written script (the narrator seems a bit breathless and nervous) the ideas behind it are pretty solid. I’ve even started a bunch of these practice in my sketch book (right) and digital sketch book (when my computer is working). Give it a look and if you do any of these practices, please share with us, I’ll put them up in this post.

Cheers.

More Buttons on MBC!

Yeah, every time I put some buttons up on the store I’m going to post about it. Partly because I need to raise money for medical bills, but mostly because I think Chudd did a great job of designing our buttons. This time around I posted the Zombie Hand, Rocket Ship, and Human Heart buttons. I just wish my photography skills were on the level with the actual pins. Still, I kind of dug taking the pictures this time around. I used some old books we have as back drops for the buttons, and I kind of dug the textures. Anyways, I’ve got way more buttons to photograph and post about, but don’t delay! If you see something you like then buy it and we’ll get out to you ASAP. Also, keep checking back at Murray Bros. Creative for new art. Chudd is working on some original, one of a kind sketch pieces that we’ll be selling soon. Original art!

Cheers!

Buttons on MBC!

1 1/4″ Buttons Now For Sale!

Okay El Moochadores, I finally got around to adding new content to the Murray Brothers Creative online store. There’s a couple of new 5″x7″ prints on the site and I also just started to add The Buttons! These buttons are 1 1/4″ in size and we have a lot of ’em. I just added four to the site (as seen above and below) but I’ll be adding more this week. So check back! Hopefully I’ll have some better images of the buttons too. I’m not really impressed with my photography skills. Anyways, these are still really cool and each button was designed and illustrated by Atomic Moo’s very own Chudd (aka: Jason R. Murray. The buttons sale for $2.00 each, shipping not included. But they’re buttons. Won’t cost that much to ship them out! Check out the four on this page and I’ll post about the other buttons as I get them online!

Groovy stuff.

Speed Drawing by Drawholic!

Okay El Moochadores, the site is back up and all podcast and galleries should be going again. Yeah, our little site got hacked and I’ve spent the last day or so getting back together. Anyways, Chudd’s been preaching Stoicism lately, and in the spirit of “get shit done” I think I’ll just move forward with a geek creative post.

So, check out these incredible Speed Drawing sessions from youtuber Drawholic. I really want to give you more information about this amazing artist but so far all I can find is that he is from South Korean and very talented. I’d dig deeper, but I feel like I just gave birth to an IT worker and his/her library of php books. I need a rest.

Enjoy!

Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years!

An Atomic Moo Book Review of an Amazing Tribute Book!

Hello my fellow El Moochadores! As many of you know, we (the brothers moo) dabble in a little art. You may also know that the both of us are Trek fans. Well, classic Trek. Not that Jar Jar Abrams trash… and may rabid Tribbles gnaw off his testicles. The point is: We like art and Star Trek! Which means that the Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Yearsimage_5 hard back book (Titan Books, 2016) is really, kind of, sort of, the exact book we want to read! And yes, I’m drinking well writing this! Wait. Anyways…

To celebrate the 50th (FIFTY!) years of Star Trek, Titan Books put together an amazing collection of art in one spectacular hardback cover! Fantastic. Heh. This book was specially commissioned by CBS and kicks off with a forward by Nicholas Meyer. Yeah! Wrath of frigg’n Kahn Meyer! Following that; Each chapter beautifully shows off the various pieces of art work along with artist interviews about the piece and how they made it. What’s great is the massive variety of art. Artist show off their talents for photography, painting, sculpture, and digital art all through the Trek spectrum! I think one of my favorite pieces is an OTS poster featuring every character from the show! It’s awesome! Okay, I know Titan sends us a lot of stuff, and I really try to be as honest as I can about the books we get, but I’m not lying. I Frigg’n love this book! I actually skipped it ahead of a bunch of other books (I’m way behind on my reviews. Sorry Titan) just to post about this book, and drink. Okay, I didn’t have to drink, but at least it’s something green.

I posted the official synopsis below along with a few sample images, but the book is way more than just some sample images. Go check it out and get an actually good piece of Star Trek while it’s out there! Again: go suck a dick Mr. Abrams.

Enjoy!
