Attn: I will have less time to draw starting Jan 6. I am doing a bachelors in 3D arts. Ill post my school work here to compensate the lack of 2d.
My name is Jessica, I live in Montreal, Canada. I heard about this site relatively recently and decided to join. I've been painting digitally since jan/feb 2013. I'll be posting as regularly as I can. I've decided to finally learn my basics, although I might not post too many studies and whatnot on my sketchbook, I will try to apply what I learn from them on some more interesting things.
So this first one was supposed to be a skull study...turns out I went a little over the top with it. haha.
I had just watched the hobbit, so I sketched this out before going to work.
I did this on a day I didnt really feel like doing art, I was playing with some brushes I found on the interwebs
realized my scout needed a but more versitality. I read somewhere that spiders sometime make a bubble out of their web so they can go in water. So I though it would be cool to apply that Idea to my little dude. Thing is they don't have webs, sooooooo its a mucus bubble.

Nice stuff, love a comics so far (dark fantasy maybe ? Really hope so ) please make more . Thou the last dude probably cud use a shave that beard really doesn't look well with rest of a painting( I mean that it looks hm hm not well painted). Maybe knocking it down a bit so it would not be so sharply painted. Ouh try putting a bit green (greyish green) in a skin where a beard is growing it probably will take that huge contrast between bright skin and very dark hairs down a bit and should give a bit more realistic, more natural look. Give it a try
Thanks for the critique Daumis. I will definitly soften that beard up. Sometime when you work on something for a while, you get used to the mistakes and overlook them, I'm happy you pointed it out.
As for the comic, yup its a dark fantasy. I finished writing all the issues recently, I will be redrawing those two pages to a better standard and keep going.
I thought up a little scene of Bellerophon battling the chimera when I was at work. I did a little sketch as to not forget my idea
I tried drawing directly from the sketch, but I really felt like I needed to flesh out my creature before I moved on. This is where I'm at with what I want the chimera to look like. ON WARDS TO PAINTING!
