Quick update

Hey all! Just a few little things this week. First is some work on two separate paintings I will be doing. One for the Infected by Art competition as well as one for the Tiny Dragon book. Just getting the ideas out now, so nothing fancy.

And next, is a rather long coming update on the fan art piece I have been working on. I feel pretty close to the end here once I get all the characters out of the way (and by end I mean probably another 10-15 hours of work). I can’t wait to get this one done PHEW!

Pow wow

Had a great time yesterday at a Native American Pow wow. Lots of interesting facts learned and some awesome music as well.

A second set of thumbnails to narrow down possibilities for another project I am working on.

sketchy

This week brings some fun work back into my sketchbook (which I have been neglecting as of late). And boy does it feel good 🙂

A little action before the Mayweather fight.

Some practice (of which I need so much more of) in figures.

Working on piecing together figures in my head.

Very fast portrait stylized studies of myself and others.

And finally an obsessive journey into a tree/bush outside my mother’s house.

New stuffzors

This week I am working on thumbnails for a new commission. I have free reign on this one so that should be interesting.

This second set is my process for an acrylic painting I did for the Jack Kirby show at the Argyle Studios Gallery. Was a fun piece to do as I have not been into acrylics for a while now 🙂

 

practice makes…practice.

Well here we are again! I finished my commission piece, but because it needs to wait a bit for the reveal, I will not be posting that here just yet. In the meantime I have some portrait practice from photos off the web. Going to attempt to get about two of these done a night. They “should” take about an hour to do two of them. I am not concerned with perfection in any of the portraits…but more so the lighting and shapes of the faces.

Slow going.

Sometimes things go a little slow because you are trying to finish up other projects. The good news is that although not much sketching done in the book this past week, there is a relatively decent commission I am working on (will show later on if possible). Either way, here are two pages from this past week of randomness.

edit: forgot to add this one from a few weeks ago (doh)!

Ramping up

This week brings a lot of things to the table:

First up is a failed attempt at coloring one of the monster portraits. Oh well, to live and learn 🙂

Next up is an ideation phase for a gallery show coming up soon with the theme “It Came from the Sea.”

Next, taking one of the ideas and fleshing it out towards final phase.

And last, but not least, more work on the fan art piece.
