Dragon looking from behind

dragon back muscles look behind

The dragon heard the warrior approaching from behind. He doesn’t look too happy 😀

This was originally going to be the daily doodle for yesterday but It went beyond a doodle.  I just get caught up in things sometimes. I trying to let my line work do most of the work this time. I tried a experiment to render it further to making look more like a painting but it didn’t work. It failed so I wasted two hours, with frustration. So I went back to this version and finished it off.

Photoshop, 4 hours (6 hours total with my mishap)

Feedback is welcome, let me know what you think.

Wyvern iPad sketch

20130610-153800.jpg

Had some time to kill while waiting, so I drew a wyvern on my ipad using the app Procreate. I no longer have a stylus so the last couple ipad sketches I have used my finger. It’s strange drawing with your finger. Time spent 1hr. Software used: Procreate.

Dragon Wyvern Painting

My first wyvern painting. I tried a different method to painting this time. I painted a silhouette and then blocked in the forms into the silhouette. This painting method worked surprisingly well for me. It got me out of my artist block. I spent about three hours on it. Painted it in Photoshop. Let me know what you think.

Dean and Jed 3d Models Progress so far.

I obsessively continue to work on my models for my web comic / animation project ‘Jed and Dean’. I exaggerated the body forms to be more cartoon like. I wanted them to look more like funny animals and less like petting zoo people,  so I removed the pants from the models and made the lower portion animal like (a common design for funny animals).  Made custom clothes for both characters, there is still some errors in the clothes but I will tweak them out eventually. Dean’s legs and hip need some tweaking. Jed’s collar needs minor repairs. I’ve also started two extra characters. Meho the gryphon and Maggie the dragon, they also need some more tweaking. Since realism is not what I’m aiming at, the models will mostly remain gradient shaded with few textures. Dean and Jed are are at a state where I can start making comics but I haven’t decided if I would be toon shading them (only if I can find a good shader), drawing by hand and using them as reference models, or just using them as-is. I also will do some animation experiments before event attempting a short.

Created in Carrara (figures, and accessories) , Hexagon (figures and clothing) and Daz Studio (posing and attaching clothing to figures, taking figures and morphing it into the model)

Time spent so far: Around 30+ hours.

Dragonian Warrior Clad in Light Armor

A couple days ago I published to the blog completed artwork of the Dragon Humanoid Warrior. I wasn’t completely happy with it so I continued to work on it. I was displeased with the dragon’s face  and I totally forgot to finish the neck, so I fixed it. Made the eyes bigger and engaged them to the viewer. The armor was originally inspired by a armor set  in the video game Dark Souls, but when I was done drawing the armor it was too close, so I modified the armor to something more original. Fixed some sloppy errors in the background but left it relatively loose. Fixed some lighting issues. Removed the old image and post off the blog.

Time spent: 12 HoursCreated in: Sketchbook Pro 6

Cartoon facial expression experiment 1

carton face expressions how do you feel today?
inspired by a ‘how do you feel today’ poster I saw on a wall.
I wanted to see how many expression I could come out of my head with the same cartoon face. I created 20 expressions. Here is my ‘top ten’ it was very fun exercise. ‘acting out’ the expressions proved very useful. I didn’t use any refernces but rely on how it felt on my face when i made each expression. I tried not to ‘overdo’ them

A silly creativity app that give random creative ideas, suggested that I try a past idea and complete it. So what does this anthro fox chick have anything to do with that? Debra was a old character I was going to use is some comic. When i started drawing I just didn’t have the skills. When I did have the skill, I lost interest in cartoon animals and decided to draw robots and roger dean inspired landscapes instead. I art with foxes is over saturated on DA, everyone draws them for some reason almost as much as ponies. Yes she has a sarcastic disgusted look on purpose.
