The third page in my comic short story. A little looser line then I usually draw. Just realized the the top three frames are not needed. It’s fun to figuring stuff out when approaching each frame. Repeated the same frame but put a different action in each frame. Gives it a movie like feel. Like my lame Onomatopoeia?
Another color painting experiment. Named this dragon Grinder. Tried different proportions. I noticed that biped dinosaurs had thick long legs and shorter arms. I thought I would try it on a dragon. Naming it Grinder was just random. I like my original black and white drawing better.
Painted in Photoshop.
Evnvoiriment Speedpaint 5. Its funny. I didn’t have time to draw the oasis because I got too involved with the Romanish building, the left side feels kind of empty. I would of been best for me to look up a reference instead of drawing out of my head for the building, however the building is somewhat sound at least. I love to put in people and crows to indicate perspective.

Environment Speed Painting 4. I noticed I have to be in the correct ‘mode’ to paint these. I attempted and abandoned 3 paintings beforehand. When it comes to setting up a painting I was given this helpful advice : When blocking a painting, if the design is not pleasing and coming together after 10 minutes or so, start over. I had done a similar painting a while back with a giant squid sneaking up on a fishermen. It was fun to approach the idea with different characters and in a different way. The splatter and charcoal brushes are becoming my pals. This is definitely one painting I should finish.

The finished picture. It’s more cartoon then I was anticipating. This anthropomorphic dragon is named Flyer, It was the first name (if you can call it that) that popped in my head. I spent 4 hours on this, more because I was doing experiments with coloring him in Photoshop more then actual drawing time. I drew the lines in last. It’s gave the painting this interesting ‘borderlands’ style look. I’m going to try my hand at some quadruped dragons. Just to expand my horizons.
Time spend 1 hours drawing, 3 hours coloring tests in Photoshop.
Speed environment painting 3. This could be a contender for a finished painting yet I still have 27 to go, that might change. I enjoyed painting the mountains and the crow. This painting is far from finished, yet I like that you can indicate a human structure with just a few strokes. Like the birds flying around the castle. it’s just a few dots.
Technically this was environment painting 4 but yesterdays attempt to paint a environment painting was so bad I decided to save your eyesight by not showing it. I’m pretending day 3 didn’t happen and moving on. Drawing a midnight might not be the best idea 😀

Non art related: Anyone remember the game Earthbound? Nintendo is finally going to re release it on Virtual Console at the end of the year for both US and European markets. Of course they said that they where going to do that a few years ago. It would be nice to play it, hopefully Nintendo will live up to it’s promise this time.
This is what the game looks like. A Dragon Quest like RPG game set in the Modern World
For this landscape painting, I wanted to experiment with red and yellows. I thought a desert setting would be cool and decided to try something more original and put it in a valley surrounded by mountains and put a giant building in the mountain.
A new daily project, similar to my head a day project that I worked on for 35 days.
For the next thirty days will be doing a 30 day environment painting challenge with the exception of the last day in which I will pick the best of the lot and clean it up and make it a portfolio piece. This is mostly to improve myself. Any feedback is most welcome.
