In other news...

i have a system that works now and here's what I 've been up to.

A moon fairy for my friend Tina. I owed her this for a while and though it's 43% complete, I will have it nearly done this time next week.

Faun is back. I went about making him the wrong way. This is the right way so, problem solved. I still have 4 hours to go on this one possibly 6. I like the way this one is going ,much better.

One in a series, this one will also be completed this week. It's a merrow and you should see his female counterpart.

this town will never be the same!


happy friday night!
i indulged on some bookish spending a few days ago, and one of the gems i got was 'shadoweyes' by formidable cartoonist ross campbell.
i don't do plugs for just anybody, but this guy's art is off the hook.
don't believe me?
see for yourself!!

anyway, i was so mesmerized that i did some fanart.

and then, because i was on a roll, i did some sketches of aang and zuko.
man, avatar was a great cartoon.

Holey Moley

Second post this month ... WHAT!!?
It's true, this week has been fun. I finally decided to tackle a few things in Photoshop that I've been dreading. But, Practice makes perfect and I I've got some perfect practice this weekend.
In the spirit of finishing things I have done some completions on "The Faun".

Turns out I was going about working on it the wrong way. After some time and some thought and ... some time, I found that most people fully render pieces with (you'll love this) The airbrush tool! That's right all this time I've been focused on painting in Photoshop with a vast array of tools and the main one used was the one I most dreaded working with.

With that said here are the results!

I have to say using this work flow solved a lot of problems and oh man is it fun!

to be a robot in love.


i drew this on the bus on my way to work tonight.
the mid-ohio con is right around the corner, and ronald and i are locked in for this year's s.p.a.c.e. con.
now i just need to wrestle myself off the futon and to my drawing table more often.

art powers, activate!

Major Details could be seen as filler for this blog, seeing as I haven't made my presence known in a while. I'm still up to my old tricks and wizardry, except I haven't been willing to reveal the experiments. Truth be told I've been heavily studying realism in art. Heaven and Fates forbid I become a realist but, I have found myself in need of a realists touch.

I recall I still have a few projects to finish here before I dare post anything new, that is except finished pieces like my good friend nathan. Today's post is an oldy but, a goody. From one of my favorite games of all time I give you...
