Deep Purple...

Didn't really work out. To be honest, I got really bored.


Goofing off again. Trying more traditional sketching. Thought I'd digitalize the alien, but ran out of time. maybe tomorrow.

Perspective issues...

It was driving me crazy. Still not perfect, but better.

Night 2...

My wife had a school board meeting, and my daughter actually cooperated at bedtime, so I was able to actually put a couple of hours into this. That's a horrible sentence.


Goofed off with a quick sketch last night, and I ran with it. Just quick stuff though, watched a movie last night, not really a good one.

Going through one of those shitty low art moments. Everything I do seems to suck, everyone else is kicking ass. Oh well, been here before.

One for no reason; the other for a short story I'm writing for fun. It started of tracing paper with prismacolor, alcohol, and some acrylic paint. Anyway...

Dharma City

For a story idea (the one with the guy missing his head). Man, I'm so bad at enviro's, and I so want to be The Black Frog. Spent an hour on it (you can tell by the date of the last post).

Meat Hole Demon...

At one point this was a demon Kekai, then it had a giraffe head, and then it had half a face, and eventually it had none.

I need to do more human figures. I'm so bad at anatomy and skin tones. I've decided to do more. So how do I handle this? Hide the feet in sand, hide the hands in globs of color (they might be fists) and throw a mask on the guy. Wow, I'm learning already!

Seriously though, I need to work on this. All my fav artist have it down, Ian McCaig, Colin Fix, Dermot Power, Dan Milligan, The Black Frog (and a slew of others); it's always their characters I'm most impressed with. Usually there's a speed there, a looseness, and an amazing grasp of what needs to be there and what doesn't. I want that understanding. I want to be fast, I don't like spending more that a few hours at most on any one piece. I want the confidence in color and line and anatomy to do what they do, in my own way.

I'm so far off course, I honestly question if I can get there in my lifetime.

They journey continues.
