WIP background for an illustration I’ll be doing this month. Feels goood to paint again.
Practicing things I’ve heavily lapsed in practicing!
They’re both studies based on pics of models I saved, but I don’t know who they are.
I didn’t mean to fall off the internet so badly, but a condition I’ve been dealing with since 2011 grew significantly worse this year. When it’s bad, it’s painful to sleep, work or move around; emails and notes went long unanswered, pictures went undrawn…being this unreliable is tough both personally and professionally. Thankfully some new meds are really helping and I feel like 2012-me again! Dare I hope for 2010-me?
I’m sorry to Amya fans for the recent hiatus, but Michael Sexton has lent us his fine skills for the latest short. Thank you Michael and all the recent fanartist for covering our butts, and thank you Savannah for all your help and patience with me. <3
Lastly…what the heck is up with the cat picture? She’s been visiting our porch for food so we eventually took her in to foster. It took a year for her to trust us and I didn’t know if she was feral or stray, but dude. She’s is totally 100% domesticated genteel inside-cat. It’s maddening that someone dumped her. Every time it rains and I see her sleeping fuzzy face, I feel a rush of relief that she’s inside and safe.
This here is fanart for the book Dream Thief, written by Jai Nitz and drawn by Greg Smallwood, to be released in May through Dark Horse! Last month Jai asked his art-buddies to draw pinups that we could post online to help promote the book, so here’s my take (I’m way pleased with the inks so move over, colors).
The writing is Jai’s brand of entertaining kickass smartass and Greg Smallwood’s art is bangin’. I’ll be snatching it up, come May - hope you’ll give it a look!
Action Poster for Amya. Had so much fun stuff to draw for this comic in January!
Drew this as one of the prizes for the the 2nd Annual Falcon Punch-a-Thon charity event, held at FSU. The premise: Every time you get knocked out by a falcon punch, you donate a quarter for Child’s Play. ”The worse you are at dodging them, the more money you raise for children!” Or, further simplified:
- CAPTAIN FALCON = Charity
- MARIO = You
Good luck to everyone participating!
Preview images for February’s Amya pages. They’re all gonna be cuh-raaazy
Fanart of Anderson from the new Judge Dredd movie (with the same paper/pens/tones as my Leon pic). I’m almost 100% unfamiliar with the comic so forgive my fanarting this movie adaption over the original material!
(I really liked that they designed her without boob-cupping armor; I know not every sci-fi comic fantasy genre whatever features boob-cupping armor, but the absence is nice once in a while.)
Nabbed a set of Deleter pen nibs for Christmas! The Maru and G-Pen are way friendlier than any fountain pen I’ve ever tried before. Not a single splatter in this whole picture.
It came with a sample pack of screen tones which was also new territory to try out (…slowly and clumsily).
 Added more tones, looked too empty before.
I looove seeing art that translates a simple design to a more detailed style, and it was certainly fun to do. Might do more if there’s time!
Some preliminary sketches for the (free!) online multiplayer game, War of Ninja. It might seem like I only ever draw women ever, but my male character designing passions often lie in WoN.
