Process (for Mark)

Here are an image that explains my process.
I do my gestures and lay-in and make sure my proportions are all good and ready. Then you can see where I start dividing the light from the shadows on his leg. I usually hit the core shadow outline pretty hard, make a distinct value difference between light and shadow, then I go over it with a towel. After that all I really need to do is erase out some highlights and make the core shadow darker. Generally keeping in mind that cast shadows I like to be hard and form shadows soft.

This is an old drawing that I have always wanted to paint. I am doing a lot of photo/painting montages recently and this is one of them.

Everyone loves pirates

It seems as though every reputable artist has at least one or two pirate paintings.

I did a "what if Davey Jones was a banana?"

Backgrounds for Altarris

Here are three of the backgrounds that I did for Spiritonin's latest project. I am kind of proud of them but am more excited for what the future pieces will be like. I just purchased a book with a tutorial from Sparth and it should come in handy.

Cleaning out the old

Just getting more old stuff out so I have an incentive to create more new.

I was up late last night

I was working late and got bored so I started a drawing in Photoshop then, I went on to coloring it, then it came out like this. It is a cruel fact of life for me that most of my happy time for art is right before bed but I am usually too tired to do most of it.

Yo Joe!!!

One day, before "I Love the Eighties " aired I was thinking with some college roomates, "Man, it would be cool to dress up as G.I. Joe guys for Halloween." Then when thinking through the characters we would be we decided that people could very well just confuse us for The Village People so I made this piece.

Old old concept

I do have some more recent pieces that I will have to finish and post but for right now I have these old ones from work.

More figure drawings

this first one kinda looks like she has her thumb up her butt, but I don't remember her doing that. Weird tangent or an event I missed

I stole from Joe Olson

Joe Olson is a colleague and friend of mine at work. He did this drawing. I really dug its design, and was playing around with it to see what it would look like as a tapestry. After showing this to him, he asked me to post it. So here it is.
