Self Portrait Day!

I was a bit more prepared this year for Self Portrait Day.  I was pretty stoked for it to roll around but shamelessly didn't come up with a good lighting plan.  Instead I decided to sit in the dark, and use the underglow of my monitors as my light sources in a dark room.  I found it interesting at first because of all of the subtleties, and yet only managed to catch a few of them.  A good practice nonetheless and will be doing more in the near future.  The rest is some #inktober stuff, some practice pieces and the final image is a remix of an old character from about 5 years back.  Thanks for looking!

Sketchbook Jargon

A page from my most recent sketchbook.  Trying out a few different things and trying to let my style pronounce itself again. The beardface and the girl with the cup are my favs from this page.

Heaven's Hell Fanart

I got a chance to sit down and got a chance to play with some pixels for a moment, and wanted to do some fan art of my buddy AJ's world Heaven's Hell.  He ran a contest earlier this year and I decided to do a drawing using his rules as my challenge.  It was to complete a character within an hour that would belong in the world of Heaven's Hell.  After that hour I liked where it was at, but decided to mess around with some techniques and try to push the piece to finish.  Also facebook's image crunchiness motivated me to push things a bit further and clean up a lot of the areas to read clearer.

Blue Wizards. Character Forge #38

Here's how it turned out~
This one definitely made me push some of my designs further upon seeing how some of the stuff was stale, or standard.  I wanted to push a few things further, but the deadline came up and I barely got this sucker in on time.  Well there is always the next one, and I will try not to get too hung up on working a piece to death, too much arting to do and too little time.  Thanks for looking!

Fun fun

Was messing around with Master Hanna's process and did a selfy.  The resemblance is off but it was fun to bust regardless.

This was a quick drawing of my gf.  Hotness yo!
