Finally finished a birthday picture for my friend Jon. His birthday was back in late July, but this picture gave me a hard time, lol. At least it’s done!
So, I’ve come up with yet another story idea (this makes, what, 7? O_o) and my brain would shut up until the drew some of the characters.
They have no names yet, neither does the story. All I can say is that it involves spirits and Native American mythology. Enjoy!
Random idea that popped into my head… I had to draw it, lol. It was fun to do.
Stylistically, I think it’s missing something, I’m just not sure what. I’m open to suggestions!
Practicing watercolor this summer in this small moleskin sketchbook I got. Trying to get better at color mixing and technique. Been painting reptiles, cause, let’s face it…. it’s subject matter I’ll never get bored with :)
First one: African Bush Viper. I love vipers… with their color variations and keeled scales they’re like little dragons :D
Second: Leopard Gecko. Eh. Tried wet on wet… but the drawing wasn’t so great to start so I’m not thrilled with it. Still.. practice is good.
Third: Juvenile Green Cat Snake. They start out with green heads and reddish bodies that turn green as they age. I loved the reference pic I found… the color gradient was cool. Also, snakes with large eyes in proportion to their heads are among my favorite kinds, sooo adorable. (Cat-eyed snake is one of the cutest I think…). Colors don’t match exactly, but I tried scale patterns.
Gonna keep painting this summer and keep with this theme. Maybe if I can get my boa to keep still long enough, I might try painting him… we’ll see, lol.
New clone got introduced a few weeks ago, so it was time to add him to my black and white portrait series!
#8: Tony Sawicki
Wow, the movie isn’t even out yet and I’m already doing fanart… that’s gotta be a new record, lol. Anyway, fanart of the upcoming film, “Lucy”. This was done on Photoshop, roughly 10-12 hours of work. Multiple references were used. I’m really happy with the result, for once the picture came out looking like the one in my head. :D
Got bored, opened Photoshop and started doodling. Got some new brush presets lately, from Kyle T Webster, and I’ve completely fallen in love with “clean comics 1”… best inker I’ve never used. Was playing around and wound up drawing up the redesign of one of my characters. Enjoy. :)
