Character Silhouette Concept

Char Design 1

I Did a bunch of thumbnail character silhouettes for fun. Basically I make a black blob, carve it out until I get a shape I like, then I add highlights and turn it into a character.

Take a look at me new site here: View Site (Remember that it is still missing stuff and has not yet been upgraded to get rid of the Wix ads. I do need people to look over it and give me some advice. The website is not meant for phones yet.)

Creepy Bearded Guy Sketch | New site preview!

I don’t like these pictures as much as the real thing, but whatever. There’s probably something wrong with the way I lit it.

You can preview my new site here: View Site (Remember that it is still missing stuff and has not yet been upgraded to get rid of the Wix ads. I do need people to look over it and give me some advice. The website is not meant for phones yet.)

Two more sketches are coming later today.

Pen drawings and commissions (lots of images!!!)

Hi there, I’m back with a bucket of images today. First, I’ll show a few ink drawings that I have been doing in my sketchbook recently for fun.

The minotaur drawing was for a daily sketch Twitter account called @Sketches_Dailies that I’m planning on posting to at least every other day or so. I did one other pic for them, which is a snagglepuss drawing. Just a quick image I did on my Cintiq in an hour or so.

Snagglepuss

The commission in the title is this one, but it’s actually a reject that was almost done. Long story short, I did the wrong style and was told that it might be better if I made it more cartoony to match the styles of the album covers and stuff I did in the past. I agreed and have stopped painting this first attempt. This image is missing a few components, but took me about two weeks of on and off work.

I’m aspeccially proud of both the sky’s in this piece, both in the door and the main sunset, which were both just painting with my main brush and smear tool.

Lastly, I have a Concept model of a character for a video game that I am involved in. I can’t talk about the subject, name, or any details of the game yet, but here’s a render of a quick concept model I made.

Test char 2

We wanted a “cute, short and squishy” character that is made mainly out of cubes, and I’m quite proud of this little guy. (Done in Blender)

I know this was a lot of information in one post, but I didn’t feel like posting all this incrementally. Anyway, the progress on my new site has been somewhat paused, as I am making a short animation for it first. This will give me a bunch of content for all the pages and stuff, as well as make a nice landing page for the site. I have animated and rendered the first few shots and everything is moving along quite smoothly. Hopefully it isn’t too long before I finish the site. And hopefully, I will be able to keep posting those daily sketches.

And that would be all folks.

These are some random sketches I did based off the shape of Kermit’s head.

There is currently two art commissions and an animation that I’m waiting to be able to release, so expect those sometime in the future.

Also, I have completed an image for my new website, and have designed a good portion of the website itself. I don’t want to show the image yet, though. And I’m not sure when the new site will be finished. I am planning to create a short animation for it, and that may take a while.

Day 77- Wanderers

Wanderers

Well, I had this idea, but I also wanted to do one of the prompts that was voted on. I ended up just drawing my idea and naming it similarly to the prompt. I’m still working on my techniques, but I’m getting there.

I’m not going to post a poll today, there aren’t really enough votes anymore, and I would rather just drawing whatever comes into my head.
