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.

#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.

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."

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.

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.
