cyborg revamped!

I decided to redo the cyborg painting because I wasn't liking where it was going. I think a huge part of it had to do with the fact that I started painting way too early. I hadn't really established form or value, and I got lost during the painting process. I still have quite a bit of work to do, but now I feel that I can move forward! I really like the value study. I can't wait to bring out the darkest darks and lightest lights in the final. So far, I'd say this is about 5 hours of work or so.

I'm turning myself into a cyborg. I changed the angle a bit, but I think I may scrap this and revert to the pose in the original picture or even do a different concept. I'm struggling! But I still have about 3 weeks to work on this. Hopefully this turns out the way I want it to.

hi ho, hi ho!

This is a scan of an old background drawing I did about a year and a half ago. I don't know why I never went ahead with painting it, because I actually kind of like it. Kind of. It kind of reminds me of Snow White. I'll do some digital color studies soon!

kind of.

Work In Progress

This is an illustration I am currently working on for my Advanced Digital Illustration class. I'm starting to eliminate initial sketch lines on another layer and block in color. I think the house in the background may be off perspective, so i'll need to fix that before I go into detail.

Flashback Friday

Hmm...that sounds pretty catchy, eh? Maybe I'll make that a weekly post. Anywho, sorry I haven't posted in a while. I should be posting some new sketches or newer work...but decided to take a walk down memory lane and post an idea for a background drawing I did about a year ago. Looking back at it now, it's quite flat. I think if I were to change it I'd make the plants in the foreground larger, the log more cylinder-ish (new word?) and add more texture to the ground elements. That's enough critiquing for now! I'm going to go enjoy some me ice cream...and continue working on an illustration about a girl dropping her ice cream cone.

finished ballerina

In an earlier post, I had uploaded some sketches of this character. I actually like the sketches more than this character illustration...this could be cleaned up a bit more and I need to fix the anatomy but I'll throw in the towel for now.
