Faces in Ink

Back from San Diego Comicon, it was amazingly fun, met a bunch of artists, watched a bunch of demos, had a great time. Now, I'm feeling the results of a week of very little drawing and a lot of inspiration - which is to say, I feel bad about my stuff :) Here are some faces, I was trying to do a bit of inking on top of my pencils, with varied success.

Final Cityscape Matte Painting

Here's the final version, at least for the challenge.

Matte Painting Update #6

There will probably be one more final version, headed off to Comicon tomorrow and won't be able to work on it again before the deadline. Not sure about the lighting FX...they draw the attention, but they might be a bit cheesy.

Matte Painting Update #5

Just moving forward, added some more lights and a bit of FG detail.

Forest of Despair

Here's the sketch from today's Sketchgroup, topic "In the Forest of Despair." Quite pleased with how this one turned out, took about an hour and a half, and I may try pulling it into Photoshop and making an actual painting out of it.

July Matte Painting concept

Here's the working concept for my entry in the July challenge, "Sci-Fi City Skyline".

Studies and such

Here are a couple of anatomy studies I did based off the Bridgeman book, and a giant character I drew to try and play with different perspectives on people.


From Saturday's Sketchgroup.
