rough color flats. i am up for any advice or opinions you may have. i'm not saying i'm necessarily going to take it, but i'll listen intently. none of this is set in stone at the moment. the underlighting is unfinished, just a test.



i've been working on this a bit, made a few changes.

3-27-11 part 2

while at planet comicon, the mighty jeremy haun got me into the coolest party in town: a top shelf sketchbook of classic Jack Kirby monsters that a friend of his has been passing around at cons. there was some intimidating pieces before mine, but i am proud of my contribution

this was a free sketch of Darth Talon for a guy who totally bailed me out after the show on saturday and gave my cars' dead battery a jump. i've never heard of this character before, and i think he chose very well. i will be doing this one up in full color for another day's entry here.

today's daily sketch was a commission for Vince Medellin using one of his characters from his original story. i think his stuff looks great and it was alot of fun drawing this guy. check out his stuff: http://www.skylineart.blogspot.com/

day one. 'taint much right now but in a few days it'll be a full color website logo (with typography which is a little scary since i NEVER do it anymore) for stonerrocklives.com. a frankenstein monster-style reanimation scene. should be fun.

emerging, enlightened, from the belly of the beast

the digital greys were looking too cold in my opinion so i penciled the tones. i like it. needs a little bit of touching up, but it's mostly how i wanted it to look.

sorry, i've been slackin' the last couple days. been taking care of a few things. anyways, here's a merging/simplification of two previous entries. this is for my brother in laws' tattoo so i needed to turn it more into a graphic than a drawing. i will be inking and digitally greytoning this tomorrow. i also plan to take the image in the opposite direction as well for a separate piece, refining the original sketchy drawing, and maybe messing around with some ink wash.

when in doubt, draw Logan. can't go wrong with that. i'm sure this won't be the only time he shows up on this blog.

SHE-HULK

maybe a bit ambitious for a daily sketch, but i had to make up for laying a goose egg yesterday. google image searching for a bit of reference on this was.... ummm... interesting to say the least.



i didn't get the pencil art dark enough for it all to come out on the color piece, so here's the original drawing. that's what i get for cranking this out in a couple hours.

no drawing today but tomorrow there will be a new one in full color, so that makes up for it.

3-11-11

didn't really have anything particular in mind today, just kinda sat down and let the pencil move around on it's own like i used to do in the old days.

day 6. the final piece. kind of a stretch calling it a day's work, but it exposed a lot of rookie photoshop errors that i learned from and, frankly, i'm taking the rest of the day off cuz i think this turned out pretty hot.

day 5. final colors (?). might change my mind and tweak things, but probably not. i was going to put a splash of color on it somewhere on the uniform, but found it unnecessarily distracting. might work on a background next. we'll see. this will probably be a final t-shirt design tho.

3-6-11

day 4. some basic digital color flatting. colors are not 100% even tho i'm liking em alot right now. i'll look at it again tomorrow.
