Thought i would try my hand at a painterly piece. I enjoy painting/drawing snow. Don't know where the creature came from aside from the fact that I enjoy furry snow yetis. I'm pleased with the results. I'll have to revisit this style in the future.

This piece was inspired by Goro Fujita. His robots are so full of personality and emotion. I figured I'd try my hand at one of my own. I Made a conscious decision to use more heavy black and not be afraid to darken areas out completely, more of a pen and ink style. I think it helps a lot in terms of defining the image and making it more readable, plus its fun to work that way I think.

Felt like doing a sketchy piece. I need to work loosely more often. I say this to myself repeatedly and I've written the same thing in this blog before, but still, there is something about an unrestrained line or stroke that brings so much more energy to a drawing. This one was inspired by one of my favorite artists, the great Skottie Young, much of my work of late has been inspired by what he does. He can get so much of a story across in a simple sketch. You could stare at it for hours and imagine all that happened before it and all that could happen after. That's why I love his work so much, not to mention the outrageous personality he gives his characters. Anyway, more like this to come hopefully.

First piece with Sketchbook Pro. After doing a little research I realized that it was only around 25 bucks. How did I not have this program already? Did a bit of the coloring and adjusting in photoshop because that's what I'm most familiar with. But I am definitely already taking to Sketchbook. This is just a fun scene I did. Nothing in the scout's manual about magic forests. Enter if you dare!
