Lunchtime doodlin' from yesterday at work, felt like doing something self portrait like. So just a quick scribble of my pudgy dragon self in all my pudgy dragon glory!
My brother asked me to design a Batman tattoo for him…and silly me, I said I’d do it (his birthday is Nov.5th so I thought it’d make a great present).
Then I remembered, I SUCK at drawing guys D: especially comic buff men. (sigh) I at least had an idea in my head of what I wanted to draw design wise. So the other day I stock piled some Batman comic art references and today I went to town during lunch break.
This still has a lot of work to be done to call it finished (if my bro even likes it!). The bats were pulled from crappy Halloween stock on google, so I’ll need to go back and recreate them…but I just wanted something to give the idea of the effect I wanted.
Anyways…yea…comic book dudes suck (for being drawn) :( and I suck even more at drawing them!
Started toiling with the little Chun-Li sketch I did a while back. Didn’t get to take her very far, but I may finish this one down the road…along with the zillion of other sketches I have. Trying to develop a fast and loose painting style so I can actually complete something in a reasonable time frame with how busy I always am. Don’t think I’m there yet…but I got to play around with some new techniques that I hope will help speed up my painting a little, we shall see what happens.
I’ve had to put this on hold for a bit due to all the moving I’ve been doing lately. As I started to work on this more today at lunch, I realize that I didn’t like how the face was turning out so I reworked it some.
Check out the larger version to get a better look at the image. The most current is on the left, the old sketch is on the right.
You can see the how I sort of build up my drawings with the image on the left. I go thru a few stages of tracing over and adding details, adjusting and reworking the line art till I am satisfied with it. Currently I’m working on the final line art layer before I slap some color on this lady :)
This is my guest piece for Edwin’s artbook that he’ll be kick-starting this Saturday. I’ll post more about it once it’s up and running :) The cowgirl character belongs to him :)
Some lunch time doodlin’ I did today of my ‘Dungeon World’ character, Illyria Sin’Fen. Just messing around with style and appearance a little. She’s a cleric that worships the Goddess Sin’Fen, a diety of death and the cycle of life. The marking on her face is of Sin’Fen’s holy symbol. Same as the clasp on her cloak.
But well, nothing fancy to see here, please move right along.
Started tooling around with the ‘Chun-Li’ sketch at lunch today. A lot of people seemed to like the little pencil doodle, so I figured I’d try and take it the whole nine yards. She’s a bit off model, I know…I drew this off the top of my head without looking at a picture of the actual character D:
This is just me starting to lay out grey scale shading for lighting. I’ll get to colors later on once I’m happy with this phase. If I ever finish this phase D:
Just a little peek at what I was working on at lunch today. I decided to tool around with my ‘Alien Queen’ piece some more, starting the coloring from scratch since I wasn’t liking how it was turning out before.
Apologies if it’s too dark on your screens D: trying to build up from dark to light somewhat and haven’t gotten a whole lot of light down yet.
Update to my last Danny picture. I started to tool around with this more at lunch today. Just painting a little more and refining some of the features…tried to fix some anatomy issues…and just made even MORE anatomy issues D: Oh well…that’s it…*whistles and walks out the door*
More work time lunch doodlins! Bald Khaleesi is bald.
So, after working more on my Daenerys piece from my last post…I realized that during that time I think (it’s been a long time since I read the book) that she was still wearing her white lion pelt.
I am ok leaving it the way it is but I wanted to do a drawing of Danny as she was for a while, bald, with only the white lion pelt from Drogo to cover her head while she grew her hair out.
So this is just a doodle of that idea, had to get it out of my brain. Another piece to go on the back burner and maybe
never get finished.
Started working on this a little again today. It’s been months and months since I even looked at this piece…and I can see there is a lot I need to re work, especially in her face D: and those hands…hahahaha…yea D: I’m a bit rusty on the art.
But well. I WILL eventually get this Daenerys drawing done u_u eventually being the key word. Slowly…but surely…
