A personal project exploring the possibilities of mixing traditional mark making techniques with digital painting. The base drawing is done in pencil, with watercolor washes, and the stars were inked in separately. Then everything was scanned in, composted, and colored digitally.
FINALLY done with this one. Between other projects and tinkering with new techniques, this has been sitting in various states of completion since the beginning of June.
Two more cosplay keychains for my cosplay group at Denver Comic Con this year. My friends Revv and Spock (outoftheclosetcosplay) as Winry and Ed, respectively.
Cosplay keychain #2 - For my friend Kayla King as Trisha Elric from our FMA: Brotherhood cosplay group
Every year after I get back from Denver Comic Con, I make small keychains for my friends in my cosplay group of whatever character they went as in our group.
First up is my moirail, Hsing, as May Chang from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
I am way behind on where I was hoping to be for personal art this summer, but at least it was for a good reason…I had a sweet little commissioned deal that I had to get done first! It was a medical animated illustration, which I can’t really go into detail about here, but was a great learning and work experience in general.
Currently I’m working on a few pieces for my children’s book portfolio
one of which is giving me a hell of a time with the color palette and my yearly cosplay keychains, which I make for my friends whenever we do a group cosplay together at Denver Comic Con.
I’m sorry about the lack of updates as of late, but now that I have more time on my hands, it’s back to work!
My process for this piece. I think I might stick with using pencils for the linework instead of inks - it keeps the edges from getting too hard.
CAN THIS MOVIE JUST COME OUT ALREADY?!
This was just a quick fun drawing as I experimented with some new techniques, trying to find a way to blend traditional and digital to get the textured feeling that I like.
Pencil on Bristol and Photoshop
If I were to offer this as a print, would anyone be interested?
A big black dog named Toto
I found a thumbnail for this in my sketchbook and decided to make it the first full illustration of the summer that I did. Some sort of alternate Wizard of Oz where Dorthy rides her giant dog, Toto.
Watercolor and colored pencil
