Serpent wrapped around a city – iPad sketch

A interesting doodle I did while traveling. A large dragon like serpent has wrapped himself around a towering city. Might make a good finished illustration in the future. Created on a iPad with Procreate.

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.

Gator merchandiser sketch

20130522-195704.jpg

More character ideas. I’ve been trying to give each character a little story so they are more interesting. This is a alligator merchandiser.

“There once was a gator merchandiser. He resets the shelves at local stores. He always got stuck with resetting the freezer sections of the store. One day he got stuck in a freezer and froze to death. The end”

Ok. So Maybe I exaggerated the freezing to death bit 🙂

Drawn on my iPad using rocreate.

I wanted to try a landscape story painting of a subject I haven’t tried yet. I decided to try a city with a heavy Chinese influence in the architecture. The painting took about 8 hours to complete, it was painted in sketchbook pro. I add a lot of little story elements in the picture for the viewer to enjoy, which also helped take the monotony out of painting details and actually makes it enjoyable. Orignally the person on the right was going to be a boy in traditional Chinese outfit, but I changed it to a girl instead. The falcon at first wasn’t glowing nor transparent originally but I found that it blended too much in the buildings so I tried lighting it up and it worked. My love for chiaroscuro has no end.
