I'm alive!

Well I am still alive! Been soooo busy lately. I'm taking an online mentoring program with Scott Waddell (Google him srsly) . I'm also working full time, podcasting, and trying to pencil a comic. So... a little stretched!

I also sold my entire setup so I could buy a mobilestudio pro 16. So far I'm super glad I did. Here's a few sketches of my first oil painting In progress. And a random desk sketch

Oil Painting Step One

Hola folks! Sorry it's been a minute since I've updated. I'm starting an oil painting mentorship with Scott Waddell. His stuff is seriously amazing and I've always wanted to learn oil.

So here is step one, the underdrawing.  It's kind of amazing how much I struggled with this lol. I didn't use sight size for this but rather envelop (shape / observational). I find I often exaggerate shapes because of my work in cartoons. It can be cool, but I need to learn to control it. Anyway this is still in progress - I am working on adjusting and making corrections to the silhouette. Next I will start on the interior shapes.

Ohh right, for the reference image I am using a Joanie Brosas photo of her in a Vampirella cosplay. I just really liked the pose and how her hair falls. Should be fun! 

keep on keepin' on!!

Err.. I stole that, need to come up with my own sign off! :)

A few sketches from last night / today. Working a day job sucks! But I heard from a couple really awesome animation / entertainment companies today that I'm super excited about 😲

It will be fun to look back on today in a year and see if anything happens! Wish me luck.

one of these drawing is a quick desk sketch - the other was about an hour sketching out a character for a client. I was just feeling out shapes and character in these.. exploratory sketches. 

cheers,

More desk head sketches!

More desk head sketches!

Well. Why not?! I saw this dude yesterday who had cross tattoos for sideburns. It was really interesting. I like trying to remember little details like that to incorporate into my designs. That's why it's so important to reference life & have new experiences. I would have never dreamt that up on my own. Oh and I saw a super cute kitten. Cheers!

New Blog! New Site!

Welp, Trying a new thing. I built a new website that I'm actually really excited about. I finally have a proper shop and will be able to add new products and original artwork as soon as they become available. I also plan on blogging more about my experiences in art and navigating the convention scene. Cheers y'all.
