I love tea. Another random monster doodle. I have found a new method the helps me stay loose and keeps me open to other opportunities. It’s fun but kind of silly what is hidden in this lobe of mine. Time spent: 35 minutes.
My second T-Shirt design featuring a dragon. I drew the dragon on my iPad and the wacky font I drew in Photoshop. T Shirts are a fascinating form of graphic design (to me) that I wish I would of considered earlier. While I doubt I will make a living making these. It helps me think outside the box and incorporate both graphics and text into a piece.

Update: Image cropped and uploaded in right orientation
Update: I tried the WordPress app on my smart phone. It screwed up everything. It double posted and uploaded the image upside down. I won’t be using it again, that’s for sure.. Image is fixed now. Sorry about that
For today’s doodle I thought I would try my hand at drawing a dragon in charcoal. About a hour. Ran out of fixate afraid of moving page.
I have this habit of of working on more then one painting at a time, as it was recommended to me by a artist to help me take a deep breath from a painting and return to it with fresh eyes . However the bad part is that I don’t complete them all. For example is this painting of Catcher, her hands need fixing and no background. Here is a collection of paintings that I will probably never finish that have been hanging on my hard drive for a month or so. One of a bad pun ‘jumping the gun’. There is some concept art for Alec’s dragon form, some kid stupid enough to read a book to a dragon, Chris as a Team Fortress 2 engineer, A failed attempt at vector art, and a sketch I just started painting but forgot it even existed, which is just as well. I draw enough dragons already.
I didn’t upload any of the failed environment speed paintings. I was originally going to draw 30 landscape speed paintings in a month. But after about 6 of them, I felt that the exercise wasn’t useful to me at this time and that it would be better just to draw a bunch of thumbnails, pick the best and make a actual finished painting out of it, like I did with the Chipayoa Temple Illustration. I becoming more interested in painting illustrations then concept art. Any input is welcome.
