Face Your Fears

It's good to confront your fears…at least, that's what I keep telling myself. My long time nemesis is foreshortening.

Follow Your Bliss

Here's a recent warm up sketch. If I can squeeze a little time in between projects I'll go to color. The background would be simple enough, just a few lines to give the birds some scale. #pigeons #wip #drawing

Meet The Artist

There was a fun hashtag on Twitter a while back called #MeetTheArtist. The challenge was to illustrate a self portrait and include a few random likes and dislikes, and this was mine. I'm mostly on Twitter these days. You can follow me there at https://twitter.com/duckduckgorilla

Slayer

Unfinished sketch of a vampire slayer. Maybe posting it will be enough of a reminder to myself that I need to finish it later.

Listening to female punk bands helps me draw better. #girlstothefront

Grey Matters

I've been enjoying these monotone color treatments lately, just focusing on some vey basic highlights & shadow rendering. I tried obscuring some of the line work to see what would happen and I'm happy with the end result, but think this sloppy approach would benefit from a little more control.

Tars Tarkas

A bit of Burroughs fun. The John Carter of Mars books were among my favorites growing up and Tars Tarkas was quite simply the coolest alien ever imagined. I remember staring at Frank Frazetta's cover art for hours and dreaming of the red planet.

Slow Poke

This one is for my buddy, Nick…Nah Nah-na Nah-na!  (He'll know what it means.)

Snow Day

Here's a recent warm up sketch that I liked well enough to add a little bit of background to. She appears a bit off balance, totally unintentional, but it kind of fits her not watching where she's going. I love happy accidents.
