Happy Halloween...a week or so early

I'd been wanting to make this for a while. I'm happy to say I have no real complaints about this one...though if you look closely you can spot where I failed at hiding the book's gutter.

Done in pencil, and ink.

Letterman Pig

There are a number of technical issues with this piece, but overall I like how it came out.

Pew Pew

Maybe I should add a fence or something he's jumping over.

side note: I draw myself way too often.

Sneak Peek

So, this is from the second panel of first page of "Elios: The Hairiest Man in All of Greece." It's still not finished, but really just missing a few basic elements.

I would post the whole page, but my tiny scanner is giving me some trouble so it'll have to wait until I scan it elsewhere.

In any case this works out better as we're trying to keep the comic's first issue fairly on the down low until it's all finished.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it. That's the beggining's of an umbilical chord by the way.

Tweaked x3 or is it 4?...maybe 5

Better? I dunno. I'm glad I adjusted it the way I did, but I just can't seem to get the lighting right. Once this is done, it'll replace my banner on top.

Edit: Fixed the face up a bit more. Got rid of the background. No idea what I should add in it's place though.

Edit #2: Fixed the hair. Both on the head, the face and arm.

Edit #3: Getting real tired of this one. Anyway, I got rid of the wall of forehead I had on here. Adjusted the hair some more, and darkened the facial hair. Also adjust the right (his left) eye; it seemed like it was going to float off of his face before.

This will probably be the last edit on this for a while. Time to get some other stuff on here.

An illustration from a story in the Decameron, where a knight feeds his cheating wife her lover's heart.

Extremely cropped due to a small scanner, though you aren't missing much. Not to mention this baby is unfinished (as if you couldn't tell), I think I'll go back and revisit it soon.


You tell me.

so i finally started coloring that dino...and hyena

The both need a lot of more work.

Pen tool lines on the hyena are off, but they'll be put in their place once i go back in with color appropriately.

Dino i just started coloring earlier today.

Fixed the suit up some (the darker one is new), I thought the last one looked too plastic-like. Still missing highlights though.

Been a while. Here are a few random things.

First and last ones are being taken further. I just started the bottom one tonight.

More sketches for May

The first 2 and even the last are inspired by the art of Nic-Klein. Expect colored ones of those soon.

The 3rd one are just sketches of my classmates and what not during a critique we were doing lats Monday (no more of those for a while! hurray!!).

Sketch a Day in May

Sketch a day in May is a "challenge" set forth by my fellow peers in school. They've been doing this for a few years now, and this time I'll be throwing my own stuff in. None of us win anything, it's just something to get us motivated and drawing. I think I'll take this particular one further.

This will also be my last update fora few days as I'm moving today. Booooo. See you all again on Monday.

Cellblock Project

This is the finished version of a crossed out sketch you might have seen further down. It's part of a collective project a classmate of mine started, and wants to hang up before classes end and she graduates this year. Anyway, this is my submission.

Can you avenge evil, and not become it?

Not really and update at all, unless you count me saying that a lot of more stuff if going to be posted soon. Anyway, I ran into this sucker a moment ago and I remembered how much I liked this TV spot. Yea it's almost been a year, hush.

T-rex start

Yep. So I used a lot of ref, and I still got the snout wrong. Screw it, I'll fix it later...maybe.
The dots in the back are actually from a brush tutorial for photoshop done at school, and taught to us by a former student; they're supposed to be scales. The arrangement reminded me of the shape of a T-rex, so I threw some tracing paper over it and gave it a whirl. Enjoy.

Random Moleskin again

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Random Moleskin 4, 5 and 6

#4: These were 3 quick thumbnails I did of a model in my portrait painting class. I moved around the room trying to figure out what angle I liked most. I went with the one that actually has a box around it, which represents the shape of the gessoed board I was going to paint on, and gave me an idea of how big I should redraw the face to make it all fit.

#5: Exactly what happens when I'm bored. I think I'm going turn the top drawing into some sort of faux anti-junk food ad. The second is just damn funny to me. I think I'll make it bigger, remove the text and go into more detail with it. Maybe make it like a next-gen femme-bot :P

#6: Lincoln Terminator. That's all that really needs to be said. Some time ago, I had come up with an idea to turn this into a live action sketch comedy spoof. When that all fell through, I placed the idea in the back of my head waiting for the day when i could pull it out again. I've since (I'm talking last week here) decided to turn the idea into a mini comic (like I don't have enough to do). However I decided to start off with an action scene first, see how that all goes, and the proceed with the actual comic.
This here is a thumbnail for a chase scene involving Lincoln (John Connor), though it's not the definite one I'm going with. It will be based on the truck chase early on in the movie with the T-800 helping John escape from the T-1000. Specifically, this will be at the point where the T-800 pulls John onto his own bike, as the T-1000 continues the chase on the truck.
This time, however, both the T-800 and Lincoln will be on horses while the T-1-000 (John Wilkes Booth) follows in a carriage. I can't wait to keep working on this. I've left the next page blank and visible because I'll probably update this post when i draw some more versions next to that.

A satire piece that doesn't satire what I would like it to satire

So I was trying to do a piece on the level of impatience people have today in all aspects of life, particularly within American culture. We need to do everything now, and learn everything all at once, and there seems to just never be enough time for any of it at all.

So I tried doing it this way. Honestly, I had better ideas on how to handle the subject, but I randomly started drawing this and went with it.

I think most people will take it as a business tycoon-archetype draining the world and everything else around it instead. boo.

I'll have to do this one over. I think I'll go with my original idea next time, instead of a random drawing. I do like the way this looks, however. Though it could use a little more "space."

Random Moleskin 1, 2 and 3

In the top image, I was just trying to carve a figure out of the dark using my eraser, however, no once can tell what it is. It is, in fact, a monster and it has human characteristics outside of it's head, but oh well.

The second one was my attempt at drawing the Prince of Persia from the Sands of Time from memory(that was a weird sentence). I was bored, what can I say? That's why I love this little notebook/art pad. Anyway, a friend of mine said he looks black, so I called him stupid. Maybe you agree though, which makes me stupid. Oh well (once again).

The last upload...on the left started out just like the top upload, and in fact was done first. However, I think I ruined it after trying to go over it with paint for no reason at all. Next to it is a random idea I had for a project due this coming Saturday. I'll upload that one soon.

Anyway, just thought I'd upload something to keep anyone who checks this place out occupied while I finish up the main stuff. See you all soon.

Digital Illustration 2 card set

Not my usual kind of work, but I figured what better way to get this party (blog) started than with a couple of clowns. Plus this is the second time I've tackled this clown subject, and it's really starting to grow on me. I'll definitely be doing other projects with the same theme, and will probably add at least 2 more cards to this set.
