I had this kick of making fake video game posters based on characters other videogames. So I drew my friends and myself as various species and monsters in the Super Mario Games.  Its also was to spoof RPGs.

Project Night: Ruins Concept art (D31)

ruins-concept2-phatend

Some concept art for the ruins area of project dark. I’m debating if I should give it a jungle like environment or not. In old jungle ruins you see those large vines that take over buildings. I would like to incorporate that into the level if possible but I don’t know if I have the main power to make them. I drew a bird/lizard like creature because my brain wasn’t up to drawing a person tonight. Honestly for the world, what needs to considered is the fauna and flora in the world. It needs to be just a little exotic but still grounded in our world

Daily Paint 11 – Charmeleon

charmeleon monster realistic

I struggled with today’s painting. I just couldn’t get it the way that I wanted it. I made him a bit too monstrous.This is charmeleon, charmander’s 2nd evolution, or as I call it, his dorky angry teenage years. I bet you can’t guess what I will paint tomorrow 🙂 then Rayquaza on Friday and Samus Aran on Sat/Sun

Daily Painting No.95 – Dragon Attacking Mage

mage and dragon battle dragon attack hungry

Another dragon painting. The main focus of this painting was composition and flow. I wanted to make the dragon look like a bad-ass and give the creature weight. I did my best to avoid drawing the ‘alex’ dragon face I commonly draw in my drawings. I wouldn’t want to meet this dragon in a dark alley… or anywhere for that matter.  Not too bad for my imagination.

My comps are starting to get a little better. The painting needs refinement in some areas but has good potential. Not entirely happy with the colors. I have a video of me painting this. I will try to upload it tomorrow for those who are interested in my workflow.  Painted from scratch in Photoshop with a Wacom Intros tablet. 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Daily Painting No.52- Tom Kidd Copy/Study Revisited

tom kidd copy study

I wanted to work some more on the study. I didn’t feel like drawing a still life today. Honestly, I didn’t want to paint at all. Since this I my first color study of a artist, I was surprised how well I did. I think this is it for this painting, I have no interest in continuing.   I studied a painting by Tom Kidd. Painted from scratch in Photoshop using a wacom tablet. Time spent, A little under two hours. My next study will be quick color thumbnail studies of a bunch of paintings by one artist. I saw a fellow artist on WordPress study this way so I want to give it a shot.
