This was the in class assignmen for my Digital Drawing from Observation class today. About 2 hours total went into this. Used Corel and I was playing around with the different brushes. I miss that program. More to come from this class!!!!
Quick 3 hour painting of a chick. It was really nice painting in B&W again, but while doing it, all I wanted was to bring some skin tones!!!! My mind has been corrupted by color....AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!
Another portrait I worked on. I've many of these to do and a long way to go. Will be posting a lot more. So far I can see a sense a difference in my understanding of color and it's not halting me from my creativity as much as it was. Yay for progress.
Okay, this was a fun one. A client of mine wanted a poster for his wife anniversary present. This is combining two movies, "Gone with the Wind" and "Planet of the Apes". I personally thought this was a complicated piece and it did push me a bit. Overall, I like the end result, considering all of the elements in the image.
Another portrait I worked on for a friend of mine. Total completion time was around 10 hours. I used so much reference for this and I still think I could have done better. Haha still working on lighting and color.
This was the portrait that got me out of my art block. Turns out listening to the violin helps you draw angry felines. Haha I tried focusing on lighting and color in this one then got a bit carried away with some facial detail, but I don't think it's harming the piece. Took about 6 hours to complete this piece I believe.
Another dragon to add to my list of portraits. This one I was struggling with the lighting and for the life of me could not think of a dynamic pose. Got a little artist block on this one as well, but who cares, right? lol Overall time spent was about 6 hours.
Another portrait I worked on recently; this one of a mermaid character. Worked a bit more on detail, around 7 hours. Overall I think it came out alright, the pose is a bit weird but I guess it works. lol
Normally I wouldn't work on a piece like this. However, I cant say no to an interesting concept and a chance to further develop my work. This piece was done for another client, he wanted a card designed for the 10 of Pentacles Tarot card deck of his.
This was the character rough painting I did. I needed to concept him and then just add him in over the background.
This was an illustration commission I worked on a few months ago. I've been needing to post this, it came out alright. I would love to go back and redo this but I don't think that it's going to happen. Colors were interesting to figure out and the "Drider" was really fun to position.
This was the female character. I wanted to do a side concept for her, just to get a rough idea of what the client wanted for her.
The completed piece. Like I said, interesting piece. Very fun to do though.
This was a commission I just finished for a friend of the family. I created this portrait using graphite and charcoal on white 18x24 inch drawing paper.
I have recently been receiving requests to show my progress and I wanted to start with this piece, as you see below. Overall, this was a really fun portrait to work on. I've never combined graphite and charcoal this way but it came out great in my opinion. I plan to try to perfect this method of working for later portraits and illustrations.
This is the character sheet for a commission I am currently working on. I didn't need to go into this much detail but it was fun solving all the questions I had for this character. I have one more character to rough out and then I'll start on the final.
