Another Shot Design


 A more recent shot design, well, recently finished, this one was a thumbnail that sat around for about a year before I got around to actually using it. I used an approach that's more typical of how I draw comics. Below are two process gifs



A Rare Character Design with Process


Let's start with the basic silhouette


 The finished line art with some color


 And a first for me, a process gif

Another long overdue art post


Portrait Demos from my Digital Drawing Course this Spring, a familiar face once again and some folks I've never done one of. Two were fast, one was slow...

A bit of random sketchbook


Here's a random sketchbook spread from one of my many rotating sketchbooks, I'm seriously thinking about scanning a completed one (or two, warts and all) by the end of the fall and posting them as free pdf downloads.

Some more sketches


Here's a quick sketch of Kanan Jarrus from the Star Wars Rebels Cartoon, something I've enjoyed quite a bit over the last year.
Followed by the first test sketch I've ever done with Manga Studio 4, so far I'm liking it but still need to familiarize myself with it. The piece above was with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 which I'm much more comfortable with (and yes my cpu is starting to show it's age).

I'll be posting some traditional media stuff soon as I'll be documenting several years worth of drawings this coming week.

Some Sketchbook Weirdness

 Up first is the exploding skull, this one is ball point pen with some
Adobe Photoshop work after the fact...

More work will be coming this summer, stay tuned!

SKULL!


I've been trying to get back into painting over the last month or so, so here's a small one of a skull, done in Adobe Photoshop CC. I'm trying to be more proactive about posting again these days and hope to be getting more paintings up over the summer.

SHAPE FACES!

Just something I've started playing with...funky, funky shape faces. These were done over random photos from my Pinterest board "Inspiring Shapes" apparently that's my code for things to make horrible and ugly faces from. These were a LOT of fun to do.





One last batch of Costumed Model Drawings

For the last session of quick sketching for the Digital Drawing Class we worked one more time with Adrianna who brought her great Harry Potter themed costume! As usual we started with really fast warm up gestures and then moved into a few short poses.

Two more pieces also with Procreate

These two are something a bit different, the first is from a basic demo on sighting and measuring from a summer program for high school students that I teach every year for the college. The second is from a class field trip to the Divine Comedy exhibition that featured forty different African artists interpreting the work through drawing, painting, film, installations and photography. I actually combined two of my favorite pieces into the second image.



More Procreate figure work

Here's some more from another session, Procreate has some really great default tools that you can adjust and save, most of these are one to two minute poses.











Some other digital figure drawing

These were done with The Procreate App on an iPad with a Wacom Creative Stylus. It's my go to drawing app when I'm using a tablet like this. All of these are thirty to sixty seconds.
