Sludgies Final

After a little blending and cleaning up im calling it finished. I could never really nail down the color in this piece in a way I was happy with so I settled for a slight greenish tint to help set the mood and left it at that.  I love the story behind this piece.These little "Sludgies" living in the shadow of the huge nuclear plant, living their secretive lives.  Drawn out by the sight of this mysterious energy source, stolen from the power plant by this renegade kid.

Sludgies Digital

Doing a finished version of a previous sketch. Experimenting with laying in values before i move into the coloring stage.

Rock Bottom

The Lorax, feeling a bit down in the dumps. I couldnt decided whether to make this a graphic or a more loose, painterly piece. I settled on kind of a rough look. I think it just suited my mood at the time. I Think this would work best as a pen and ink drawing though.

Chameleon

This guy started as pencil, then his lines were inked and he was colored in photoshop. The background was a trial of patience. Why does this look over-saturated when I post it to my blog but nowhere else? These are technical issues I'm still ironing out!

Zombie Flesh

This guy started on paper as a pen and ink sketch. Outlined and colored him in photoshop. I'm aware his hand looks like a mitten. The hand is implied! I think he has good character.

Sketchbook Page

Just a page from my sketchbook that I rather liked.

Sludgies

I'm going to start posting stuff from my sketchbook. I don't have a scanner so I have to take photos of them which means the quality isn't exactly what I would like. Some I will color in photoshop, some I will just post as unfinished sketches. Here is the first.

Decided to do a digital work up of this sketch, here is my initial rework with basic tones laid in.
