This is another character concept for the same children's story as my last post. This is my idea of a wandering African ninja-type warrior woman. I kept it pretty rough this time and just played around.

A charachter I started a couple of days ago. My first piece all on photoshop, with no pencil drawing to begin with. I am actually truly happy with how it came out. Children's book illustration seems to be pretty fun so far.

The Apple

A study I did tonight from a photo I took in figure drawing last year. Experimenting with some new brushes and blenders.

Billy Goat's Gruff

A concept I pencilled, scanned and painted in about two hours.

This is a project that I started on friday. I had someone take lot of pictures of me in my khaki detective trench so I could draw and paint the folds. So there will be al lot of future posts of me in a trenchcoat. I did try to make it look like someone else, but it still kinda looks like me. Anyway I had fun with using texture from the imported textures to the texture brushes I used in the shadows. Damn trenchcoats are hard to paint!!

Ghost Girl 2.0 Final (maybe)

I spent a lot of time on this one, and I don't think it's gonna get any scarier. I have been in the abyss long enough, it's time to come up for air. I'm sure I will do some minor corrections from time to time, but for now, I am done!

Ghost Girl 2.0 Value Studies

Today I put some value on this piece, and flipped the composition. Hopefully this made it more interesiting. Trying to work in B&W and get the values right before adding color. This is only my third time trying this technique so here goes.

Ghost Girl 2.0

I did concept painting of a ghost this past summer that I was quite proud of. However I never really got the concept fleshed out as well as I wanted to. So this is my second go. I pencilled this up last night and will begin painting shortly. Hopefully I'll be done in a few days..... Hopefully.

The Fuzz

I have never done a cartoon piece before so this is my first one. Distorting the proportions felt very empowering. Not having to follow rules allows one to become more creative. I will be doing lots more of these soon!
