Old Habits


One of my favorites from that same sketchbook. He has personality, and I enjoy his high waisted pants.

Gentle Giant Process











From Pencil drawing to inked and colored. This was my process. Lots of cross-hatching. I have fun doing it and a creature made out of rock lends itself to the straight lines and planes that the hatching creates. I went through a bunch of iterations of this idea, this was my first and simplest. I like the way it turned out for the most part.

Feral Pika


A sketch done with brush pen, then colored in photoshop. Experimenting a bit with combining traditional and digital techniques. Also just looking for excuses to use my scanner.

I finally have a scanner!


I finally have a scanner! Now I can post some stuff from my sketchbooks. Pretty excited, being able to scan things into photoshop is going to be a huge help. This is a cut up of a few different pages from my most recent sketchbook. I use Pigma Microns and Pilot brush pens for ink.

Jellyfish comic pages



Ive been wanting to illustrate a story for a long time. Here is a couple WIP pages from one I have been working on recently.This is my first attempt at visual storytelling. Its a learning process but its fun to think that way, in terms of a sequence of images rather than just a single stand alone painting or drawing.

Brainstorming


Been messing around with a story idea for a little bit, inspired by an earlier jelly fish image i had posted. Decided to rough it out and see if that got the wheels turning. I think it will be fun to draw. Looking forward to taking it further.
