Character/Logo + Pixel Art

I’ve been lucky enough to work on some fun jobs lately. Unfortunately, I can’t show them all, but here’s a couple of the pieces that I can.

These are for a Youtube channel called Less energy. The guy was cool, not picky, and very easy to work with. Here’s the review he gave me:

“I got Jumping Monkey to do some YouTube artwork for me. His work is very affordable and really professional. He understood what I wanted and delivered a better product than I could have imagined.”

Pixel warrior final
Here’s a pixel drawing I did as a test for another job. I always looked down on pixel art, but now I get the appeal. It’s REALLY addicting. And actually very easy once I figured out the resolution. The program I used for this, and probably other pixel art in the future, is called Affinity Photo, which has a special pixel tool that makes the process much faster and simpler.
Make sure to follow if you like my work. Thanks for reading!

Creepy Bearded Guy Sketch | New site preview!

Creepy beard_1

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.

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.

Banner

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.

Jumping Monkey Characters (Including official mascot!)

Hey! I’m currently on vacation and have been working on a few characters, which is a lot easier now that I’m taking a break from doing freelance work. Any way, here they are:

IM final Pic

So, I first had the idea of making a Jumping Monkey mascot, which is the stylized looking monkey guy in the sliding pose. He was a relatively easy drawing actually, but, regardless, I really like how it turned out. The second character I made, is the “realistic” cartoon monkey. Not as fun, but the result wasn’t too bad in my opinion either. However, I will admit he may have been a little rushed. The third is a character of me in Interstellar Marines (A sci-fi fps game) armor. I have recently joined a clan (Pro Marine Core), and will be playing in the IM tournament soon, so I thought it would be a cool piece to have since I’m going to be a part of the community and such. This drawing took three days of on and off work to complete, and I really like the result. Also, look below for a Jumping Monkey character desktop background I put together. Including my Minecraft character.JM Wallpaper-01

Day 69- Anthophobia (Fear of Flowers)

Anthophobia

Again, nothing special. Just a quick sketch with some color thrown on top.

This poll is a little different. I only put two answers, and an other. I wan’t to something more involved tomorrow, not just a simple cartoon character:

Day 68- Neophobia (the fear of new things)

When looking for things to put on yesterdays poll, I came across and “random phobia lister” I picked out neophobia and put it in the poll, I had an idea in my head of what I would do the whole time. Since it was voted for, I got to draw my idea today. It was really quick and simple, with a new character style I decided to try. I like how most of it turned out, but the kid in the corner could definently have more emotion.

Here’s the poll for tomorrow:
