Look What I Drew! 03/03/2014

La Muerte (The Book of Life)
Oh my word did I have fun drawing this piece! It was one of those rare moments when you have an idea and it comes out better than what you originally thought. I'm leveling up like crazy this art jam!

No news today. It's been snowing and raining and I've got work tomorrow so I may not be able to get the day 4 drawing out...

Look What I Drew! 03/02/2015

Blake Belladonna.
Day 2 of the art jam: complete!

I have to admit, I've only watched one episode of RWBY, and I didn't even finish it because I got up to eat and completely forgot about it. That being said, I really like the designs of the characters and I figured everyone would do Ruby Rose so I opted to draw one of the other main characters. I also went through about 3 poses before I fell on this one...poses can be pretty damn hard.

I'm really digging using the color palettes! I want to use them more often and hopefully I'll find the colors I'm most comfortable playing with. I've got a lot of time between now and Interventioncon, so it leaves me with plenty of ideas for art pieces. I wanna do something different than most pieces at artist's alleys, so I'll try out poses, colors, whatever I can to stand out. I've got a few ideas for pieces - I'm planning about 6-8 - and once I have them drawn I'll post them up, naturally.

I'm so excited for this year!

Look What I Drew! 03/01/2015

First day of the Art Jam is complete. Unite the Seven!

I could not think of a background for this picture! Had to look up some reference photos of the sea to get an idea and I'm glad with the end result. I also used a color palette so I didn't have to bother with the right colors for skin and hair and all that. I plan on using color palettes for each piece this art jam.

In other news, my application to sell my art at Interventioncon was accepted! I'm going to my first convention as a professional artist!

I am very, very excited.

I'm going to plan out a few pieces - some are already sketched out - and get to work right away. It feels good to have purpose with my art...for way too long I wondered what I was doing and where I was going with drawing, and now it feels like it's all coming together. Things really can only go up from here, guys.

If you guys have any ideas for pieces, let me know!

March Art Jam is MY Art Jam!

A little preview of what's to come~
Sorry for the lack of updates, y'all: the art muses were not giving me anything for some time. I do have another piece but I'll upload that tomorrow - it's separate from the art jam.

As mentioned, the art jam happens this sunday. The link is here so feel free to check out all of the other artists and their work. The list is as follows:

  • Day 1: Aquaman (So you knew I was doing Jason Momoa's badass rendition) 
  • Day 2:  Any of Monty Oum's characters. If you don't know him. he was one of the animators at Rooster Teeth who died suddenly this year. He's known for Red vs. Blue and RWBY
  • Day 3: La Muerta from The Book of Life. Have you seen her design? It's seriously awesome. Google her. 
  • Day 4: Marceline the Vampire Queen
  •  Day 5:  Any Naruto character. Now, I've done Naruto and Sasuke to death, so I promise I'll draw someone else. As a matter of fact, I'll let you guys decide! 
  •  Day 6: Macho Man Randy Savage. Ooh YEAAAAH! I already know what I'm gonna do for this one XD 
  •  Day 7: Yourself as  Katamari Damacy character. I have an old drawing I'm going to update just for this
There you have it! I'm going to do my best to have previews like the one above, so keep an eye out and share on your pages!

Look What I Drew! 01/14/2015

Old drawing of Lucy (Elfen Lied)

New drawing of Lucy (Elfen Lied)

New drawings are fun.
I ran a little poll on Google Plus regarding which old drawings I'd update and like...two people responded. So weak. I'm just gonna do all 3, now. The next two subjects are:
  • Hiro and Baymax (Big Hero 6) 
  • Corporal Levi (Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin)

Look What I Drew! 01/09/2015

While I have breaks at work I'm going to update old drawings. The first is Kitty Pryde from an old art jam. I never liked how she turned out in the original: I went for a pose that didn't work out and made her look very small and disproportionate. Her leg in the updated pic looks small to me but I can always fix it.

It'll be fun to redo these drawings. I usually have enough time on my hands when I'm on break and sometimes I can't think of what I want to draw. Now, I just have to see which drawing is next...

Look What I Drew! 01/07/2015

So a while back I drew this OC... Well, just a head, at first. I really liked the look and decided to give her a complete body and style.

This is the result. I have to say, I'm in love with her.

Maybe I'll find a place in a comic to put her, or possibly give her her own story. I dunno, maybe I'll just use her for character studies, but it feels kinda lame to keep her in only one thing.

Well, I'll find something for her. She's too cool to keep in one place.
