4 velociraptors -sketches – 1st pass

20130616-235611.jpg

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

Alex the Alligator Character Concept Art

Alex the alligator is a character I have designed for a comic /animation hybrid that I am working with a friend to produce. The character’s personality is based on my own. It was a interesting challenge to draw a friendly/geeky looking alligator. Funny animal alligators are usually portrayed as bullies. It’s going to be fun to bash stereotypes with this comic. Originally he was going to be a dragon but we decided for the projects to use only real animals. He has a dragon look in him still. My friend chose a cheetah for his character. A fat cheetah, that’s going to be interesting.

Update: I decided humans are better for this project at this time. He looks a lot like my dragon character Chris.

Asgaut the Viking – Concept Sketch

Introducing Asgaut the Viking. This is one of my experimental projects much like my daily head portraits. I want to do something that I haven’t done before, tell a short story in sequential art (comics). I’ve done comics in the past but they where either one panel gags or one page strips, but I would loose interest in them.  I’ve been working for months on very epic story that would take pages and pages to tell in words let alone frames,but it is beyond me to create at this moment due to my lack experience in posing action shots. So I am putting that project on the backburner. I just wanted to actually MAKE a comic with a simple story that will take no more then a couple dozen pages. A comic that will start and end. It will be drawn in black and white, no color.  I have written the script for each page already. Now all I need to do is draw the pages. I will start drawing them today. My goal is to get at least two pages done a week. If I can get 5-6 heads drawn a week, I should be able to get at least two pages done. Starting out small so I can actually finish something for a change :D. This painting is pretty boring but it is simply a ref for me to use when drawing the character. Later I will paint a more polished work of him doing something interesting. Added a Page

I forgot to post this last week. Concept art for a anthropomorphic jackal people that would fit in well in some sort of fantasy video game. I could see these be like enemies that you would have to fight.
