Today I finished off my most recent sketchbook with a self-portrait. The eyes are a bit off and the whole thing turned out more serious than the photo I referenced, but I still like it.
Sometimes I like the backs of buildings more than the fronts.
This guy is a bit of a pinhead, but he's a nice pinhead.
One side, just like the other, both in vibrant color.
The first in a series. One line, many turns.
Strange animals are known to wander the purple desert.
A little half-tone pattern, a bit of paper texture, and some vibrant colors helped bring this ghoulishly sketchy illustration to life.
Today I signed up for a couple free months on Skillshare.com. I've already bookmarked a number of tutorials I'm interested in, and I kicked off the fun with one on turning a hand drawn character into a vector illustration. Here's a character I created while incorporating some of the tips I learned in the tutorial.
I drew this bundle of tulips to give to my sister as a gift for her birthday.
Alright, winter, feel free to melt away.
One more submission I did for a recent Minted.com challenge.
I recently decided to try my hand at submitting to some design challenges on Minted.com. I've participated in a few in the past, even won a couple editors picks, but I'd like to do it more often. If I'm lucky, maybe I can't build up some residual income. I'll definitely give myself a bit more time to refine my submissions next time, but it's a start.
I recently spent some time watching the last of winter slowly fading away. It looked pretty, but I, for one, am happy to see it go.
Fooling around with the new drawing tablet and came up with this dude. He seems nice enough...
One side, the same as the other.
This photo is all about texture, both the texture of the dirty window in the foreground and the building, out of focus in the background.
Check it out, I designed a mock-up of the box art for the card game my friend and I created. While we're in the play-testing phase I have also been preparing some assets for our upcoming Kickstarter campaign. I'm excited to see it coming along.
Another colored pencil illustration. I think it might be cool make a space shooter video game with hand-drawn illustrations, so I thought I'd experiment with drawing a few spaceships. Once I get a few more down, I think I'll make a sample animation of what a game in this style might look like. Stay tuned.
I downloaded a cool app/game on the old iPhone called Jazza's Arty Games. Basically, it gives you a variety of suggestions to inspire your artistic creativity. There are a number of different categories that the suggestions come in. This particular illustration was inspired by a suggestion of three specific colored pencils to use create a drawing.
Sure, the winter months can be cold, but that doesn't mean you can't take a minute here and there to appreciate the view.
