Black Eyed Susans



This started as a drawing from life exercise but then turned into a floral pattern of some kind. I think it would make for interesting wallpaper, anyway...a nice change of pace from my usual subject matter.
I warped it for fun, I kind of like it!

Messi

Inspired by Wold Cup action. This is a Charicature of Lionel Messi of Argentina, in my opinion the best in the world. I think there is a hint of a likeness there. This was a fun challenge for me.

Mushies

Mushrooms are always fun to draw! I didn't plan this piece out. It just happened organically while sketching. Those are sometimes the funnest because there is no expectation being placed on yourself to execute an idea or live up to the image in your head. You discover as you go and often the results are better for it.

Character Sketch

Character portraits are in my comfort zone, just a sketch I had in my book. A monk or a tribal holy man of some kind.

Biologically Hazardous

 "Conducting research into the potentially deadly properties of alien lifeforms, can never be too safe when dealing with unknown substances." This was another sketchbook piece colored in photoshop. Concentrating on creating depth with atmospheric perspective, reducing contrast.
