Ego Trip

That image I planned on finishing is mostly completed. I'm new to this whole "finished image" business, but in doing this image, I'm appreciating the importance of a visible brush stroke. The less strokes there are, the more important the strokes become. A simple concept, yes, but I had to learn it the hard way.

I have more images to work on for my Senior Show. If you're in the area of IWU, it'll be on April 4th.

Spectrum + Bats

Thanks to all recent visitors. Your attention has been appreciated!

I have been diligently working on an image for Spectrum, and hope to make it in this year. This year's entry represents me far more sincerely than the last one, and hopefully the end result will show.

I also spent last evening studying the anatomy of bats. Here's a doodle from the end of that session. Little artist bat has a lot on his mind, doesn't he? (From the sketch it would appear he's thinking of Jon Foster.)

From Christmas Break

Another tradition I carry over Christmas break: studies off of Native American subject matters. I found most of the images on Old-Picture, FFFFOUND, or Shorpy, or deviantArt.

As a bonus, something I drew when I was looking at Diablo characters:

EVG Music

Commission for a friend's site. I told him I'd only work for him on the condition that he's good at what he does, so check out his music!

Late Night Adventures

"But Mo-ooooom, I don't wanna wake up for Church!"
(Photoshop over Colors! on the Nintendo DS)

Blame New Years for screwing up my sleep schedule. Here I am, way past my bedtime, working on some more gift art. For whatever reason, redoing other people's characters gets me completely pumped, even more so than creating my own stories. 

Looks like I'm suited for the commercial art world after all.

Artist Spotlight: Adam Law

(Photoshop over Colors! on the Nintendo DS)

Even without the bounty hunter name, Adam Law has been an inspiration of mine. I used to frequent his old webcomic forum back in the day, but since then he's moved on to bigger and better things. Over the last three years I've made it a habit of doing sketches of his characters during my Christmas Break.

Check out Adam's work on his website and sketchblog.
