this is a very interesting sketchbook, I love everything about it! I went ahead and liked your facebook page and I can't wait to see future stuff from you.

Wow! Comments! Ha!
XSFX: Thanks, Lloyd! Miss ya, buddy! You should post on a blog or something so we can see what you've been up to!
Adrian: Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad you like my stuff! Yea, I'm starting to lean a lot more towards the toonier stuff. It comes more natural to me and I have much more fun doing it. So why not, right? Not all of us can be Wes Burt, I guess. lol Thanks for the encouragement! Maybe I'll do a tutorial in the future.
ezekrialase: Thanks! It's a huge mish mash of stuff, that's for sure. But I'm glad you've enjoyed your browse! And thanks for liking my Facebook page! I update there the most frequently because it usually provides instant feedback that makes my art ego feel good. lol
It took a while but finally someone commented! lol Thanks again! I had kinda given up hope but I guess I'll post some of the stuff I've posted elsewhere. This is a mixed bag, as usual. Another sculptris sketch, Christmas card owl doodles, meeting scribbles and another WIP of my Zelda piece. Enjoy! More to come!
Well, after several days of scraping together time to paint, I finally managed to finish off my Legend of Zelda illustration. I took some chances and varied my approach when it came to this piece. It didn't quite come out how I'd hoped but I still think it's pretty fun and I learned a lot for the next time when I dive into a work like this. And I was painting freakin' Link! So how awesome is that?! Ha!
I hope you guys liked how it turned out and enjoyed watching my progress as I moved along. There's something that I really loved about the original sketch and over the course of the illustration I just lost some of it. But I'm still satisfied and ready to move on to something new. I think I'll be working on more sketchy stuff for a while. Between this piece and work I'm getting a bit tired of working so tightly.
At any rate, I just wanted to get it posted! I was pretty sure I'd do a small print run of this but I want to see how the reception is first before I plop down any cash. I know the feel of it is a little different from some of my other work I've previously posted. Let me know what you think and I'll keep you updated on whether or not I print them off! Thanks for looking and happy Monday! Have a great week, guys!
If you guys are interested you can purchase prints of the Zelda image by clicking here.
Here are some sketches.Most of the stuff is scribbles/studies from photos I randomly found on the internet. Trying to practice quick drawing figures and get a little more anatomy work in there. I really just want to focus on getting ideas down quickly and trying to waste less time noodling on stuff. I suffer from "reder-itis" a bit. Tried to be more hasty when laying this stuff in though. I hope you guys like 'em!
The unfinished dwarf and the troll with the Corgi puppy were obviously random imagination stuff. The troll sketch is who I like to imagine my dog hangs out with when we're away. ;o) Y'kno how animals sometimes seem to see things that we can't? I used to imagine they could see ghosts or something. Now I think there's an invisible troll that lives in my house and just loves my puppy to pieces. lol
I'm going to do my best to be more proactive in the days to come but I'll probably only update the blog a couple times a week. Not sure which days just yet. Perhaps Sundays and Wednesdays? Regardless, I'm getting back into sketchbook mode and am having a blast! Can't wait to generate more images! Keep checking back for more scribble mayhem! Take care!
Here have a zombie elvis pen sketch.
Playing around with brush pens... Man, does anyone ever even look at this thread? lol Maybe it's time to put a nail in the ol' coffin.
Some contract work I did for an app recently...
