Wait for it.. I painted a daily painting… WITHOUT A DRAGON IN IT!.. and the painting is.. IN COLOR!!!.. please don’t faint, I’m too lazy to catch you. And yet I still made the monster able to breath fire.. go figure. 🙂 I stole the glowing fire tummy idea from the Hobbit movie, who in turn blatantly ripped off from World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. :O. Originally the monster was going think like the Hulk.. you know “ME HULK SMASH PUNY MAN” . But then I ADDED COLOR, so I need to make the picture more interesting. So I made it think more like the Hulk. you know “Me HULK BURN PUNY MAN! I SAY THAT’S SMASHING!” Did I mention that I painted it in color? This painting was purely out of my imagination. Photoshop. Time spent 1 hour 10 min. Done be surprised if I continue this painting on Saturday. I also painted this in color.
I was really depressed last night so I needed to draw something silly. I love finding connections to things that have little in common. You can break down this spoof in two ways.
1. Cumberbatch playing both Kahn and Smaug. And Spock entering the wrong movie by mistake.
2. The original Spock’s outrageous song about Bilbo Baggins (seriously…. It exists.)
There is one thing for certain. If Spock and Smuag where in the same movie. Smuag would get his ‘donkey’ (another pun yay!) handed to him.
I spent about 2 hours on this sketch. Also, if I get 5 comments about liking this sketch, I will make it into a painting
I did a painting of this iguana out of my mind, while watching the Lotr with my dad ( To my surprise he had never seen it) I started painting the little critter on my iPad but then gott irritated so after the movie was over I finished the shadows in Photoshop. I have no clue how long I spent on him, since I was watching the movie on and off. Self Critique: need to fix the bounce light in the shadows and lighten some areas of the cast shadows since they darker then the core shadow. the area around his eye got mess up somehow. Any feedback is appreciated.
Here is a WIP for a Album Cover I am working on. Featuring a serpent-dragon thing who has had the misfortune to accidentally tie himself up in a knot. It is relatively done, just needs some clean up in a few rough spots. I spent about 7 hours on it so far. Painted in Photoshop. Made some custom brushes for this painting. Let me know what you think 😀
After having diner with my friends at a brewery. We had interesting talk about which friends we knew would win in a fight of various monsters and such, including Sasquatch, megaman, and velociraptors. After such a enlightening chat, I wondered what my friends would look like if they where velociraptors. I sketched these on what I remembered a velociraptor looked like from memory ( I had no wifi at the time) and sketched these in haste. At first I wasn’t going to add any clothing or hair, but it was next to impossible to portray each friend exactly, so I gave in. I added feathers in the back because they where wearing shirts and need feathers elsewhere. They are very rough doodles but still funny, if I do anther pass with these characters I make them more accurate. Drawn on my iPad using Procreate. Time spent: about 50 minutes
Update: Really goofed up. Fixed some issues Weaver pointed out. Added some more refinement to the shading. The most annoying thing I did was draw the body using modules but I drew the stupid face as a symbol. oh well.
Story: This is a happy go lucky kid that lives in dark town hiding many secrets.
Starting a new 30 day project like I did with the 30 day portrait challenge a few months ago. The theme is characters. I thought I would start out with something simple. A young boy. I shouldn’t draw so late. I think it came out decent but it could of been better if I did a little more research and a few more prelim sketches. Maybe a more interesting shirt would help? I made the hands ginormous and had to shrink them down. I prefer the black and white version to the color one. Let me know what you think. Don’t be shy, I won’t bite.
Update: I decided focus on my portfolio with design and illustration projects. So I wont be doing this list for a while
List of characters I will be drawing during the 30 day challenge. Each will have a different background story, gesture, and I ‘hope’ I can give each a distinct personality.
Space Solder Male
Space Solder Female
Cat Woman (not the comic character)
Might not be the smartest thing for a mouse to do… I enjoy doing these fun little drawings with animals. I like the interaction between the two characters. It’s also one of the few drawings I have done where the horizon line is not visible. I painted this in Photoshop with Wacom tablet.
To my excitement WordPress has notified me that I have 500 wordpress readers following my blog (635 readers total).

It means a lot to me and has given me motivation to continue improving myself as a artist. 😀
