Rally car

I like how rally cars look, and the technology that goes into building them, but the race itself? Kind of boring.
At least it's not Nascar. ;D

Beautiful colors on the ref photo.

I think I could use some work rendering different materials. Slimy is a good example of something I don't do well.

Rage quit

Did this late last night (or early this morning, if you'd like) after looking at Greg Broadmore's tutorial.
I don't have the patience to follow tutorials, but I really need some way to push my digital art foweard.

Double whammy

Since I skipped a day, I'll give you double the sketch.
Starting with Monday's free model session. I call this guy Scrote. :P

I also sketched some planes in Sketchbook Pro, which I still can't get a serial from *grr*

I wish I was able to find a way to crack the roadblock I hit whenever I need to finish a painting. Is it a lack of certain tools, or is it something mental?

In the meantime, here's a chick.

Stag sketches

I need to make a logo for my ongoing portfolio project, which I decided to name "Operation Steel Stag" over the summer. I've had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to do, but I heard that it's better to sketch a few alternatives anyway, in case something good comes up.
I think I'll stick with the original head held high pose, I realized that giving the antlers an atmospheric depth effect could be cool.

I'm going to sketch some typography, and resolve it in illustrator.

Color Theory: Bike Girl 1

Stretchy neck.

I don't know.

Fooling around with Sketch Book Pro. I'm still waiting for a serial number to be available from autodesk, so that I'm at least using it for something productive, since I couldn't install Maya /rant

Sailor Moon Art Comp!

So Ari, Lizzie and I had a 10 minute art competition to see who could draw the best Sailor Scout!
:D (mine creeps me out so bad)

Mohawk Girl and Tuxedo Mask Cat

Sketchbook Doodles!

(big head is on purpose, jus' sayin')

I also just got a new camera!
Look what I can do now!

Ooh pointy!

More tomfoolery with refless character design. Usually I don't know why I draw the way I do, but certain bits about this I do. The angle of the legs came to me as I was looking at a fellow students work, the shadows of the face are something that I see so often in figure drawing sessions, etc.

Dog Kid

Ive been trying to learn how to draw Balto lately, and this is a test run of what I've managed to retain. Sorry for totally.. not updating everyday!

Fooken zef owl

Since I didn't know what to draw in sketch group, I thought I would just use my left hand and let it wonder. This lead to some sort of owl guy, which I liked enough to rework digitally.
I also felt it would look good with a tattoo on his chest. "Pretty wise" is a tattoo worn by ninja of Die Antwoord, a South African hip hop parody. It's also refers to the wisdom of owls.

I need to make up

Since I didn't post anything last night, I'll make 2 sketches today.
I started with a commission. Mom wanted me to do something for dad's birthday.
I don't think she understands the effort it takes.

more tiger studies

Smells fishy

Sorry about the double post from last time. Yes, it was supposed to go on my personal blog.
A quick fishing boat (20 min., maybe?) from a ref photo I had lying around in my computer.

Instead of commenting, I'm going to liquify Hannah's stupid face. ;)

shitty face


After Itamar's Warp critique thing, I changed some things around....

Mondays mean free models

Today we have someone that looks like a lean, mean, one-fingered fighting machine. Come on, what are they chances I'll ever draw anyone like him again?

Monday, February 7, 2011


I decided to finally start my study of animals. After I saw the book daily zoo by Chris Ayers. He inspired me to study good old nature, so this is the beginning. its done in ink wash with colored pencil overlay and a touch of marker.

Mountain goat

Just standing on a rock taunting you to feel how soft it's beard is. :P

Dark plane

Some sort of aircraft hovering in the darkness...

edit: I'm going to start giving critique to everyone who posts, keep everyone on their toes. :)

Desert Chick

Fooling around in Photoshop.
I need to show Painter some love, but there are certain technical difficulties I need to resolve first.
