drawling from Concept Club last night. I I was going to work on this much more, but I think I'll just move on for now.  Concept Club was a really nice kick in the butt yesterday and has helped me start thinking about "what I'm drawing and why" again.  So thanks for the insightful convo's urrybody!  

I can no longer expect to have a great piece, or a piece I am happy with every time.  The important thing is learning something from the pieces and using that knowledge in the next piece.  I think expectations can be a very deadly thing if you let them control your art the majority of the time.  So something that I will be trying to keep in mind is to just simplify if I don't understand something, and try to learn from it.  If I worry about what other people think, or how far away from my goals I am, my progress will slow.

This is a fanart of my buddy Reggie's character from his webcomic David-PR

So this is a re-occuring character Elena I created in college. She is a magic based character that makes it her life journey to learn magic from the camps and cultures she travels to. She eventually dabbles in some very dark magic which eventually begins to corrupt her. This is just a quick sketch of her beginning to experience some of this darkness.

Yes yes..another hooded clue what my fascination with that is other than adding a level of mystery to characters. In all fairness though, she was originally designed with a hood

Also while you are surfing the interwebs, go check out my buddy DarkHalo's latest album: A Million Drops.  Be warned, this is a highly addictive album and you will find yourself craving to hear the sweet ambiance of this terrific release.  Go check it out on soundcloud, or download it.  Also if you'd like to read more about it, go peep my friend Irene's great article on it.

Lunch Study

Did this as a lunch study.  I worked on it after work a bit more.  I tried to intentionally be mindful of my brush strokes, and the lighting/value shifts of things.  The cloth turned out decent, but I am still rusty with that junk.  I am also trying to become more aware of my value ranges.  The photo I studied from was found in Mjranum's gallery.  Happy weekend all!

Vamp Hunter

Just some lunch time doodles, working on fleshing out a vampire hunter for shits and giggles.  The toys and things will be fleshed out a bit later, for now just having fun exploring different character types with a standard style body.  The stories for each variation is floating around my noggin, and developing as I go, but for the most part I am trying to include some subtle ideas of him being very cautious about his neck urrrrea.
