Friday Piracy

A pirate theme for this mornings sketch. Not much to say about this one. I don't usually draw pirates but I was told Friday was pirate day. Lets see what happens next friday.

Sketchbookpro for lines and photoshop for the added paper

Call me...

This morning's sketch was about coffee

I haven't seen enough art of this girl though to be honest I haven't really looked. MGS's little Mei Ling, developer of the Soliton Radar and the Codec communication system.

Lines, SketchbookPro. Color, Photoshop


Mei Ling: Snake. That's a ladies bathroom.
Solid Snake: I know that. I saw Meryl come in here.
Mei Ling: So you went in after her? Are you some kind of pervert? I won't let you save your mission now.
Solid Snake: Listen Mei Ling, this is the only place on this base that I can talk to Meryl alone.
Mei Ling: Whatever, weirdo. Don't call me again.

M is for...

With "The other M" almost ready I thought this mornings sketch should go to my first video game love.

Morning Monster Hunt

For this morning I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to sketch so I'm happy with how it turned out.

The Kirin set was one of my first elemental sets excellent for farming Kirin and Khezu :)

Green Jade Morning

Jade from "Beyond good and evil".

This mornings sketch before work was to try and use some color in sketchbook pro. So I'm thinking now that color isn't going to be something picked up over night. But I think I can get there if I try.

I wonder if gradients are possible in sketchbook?

Calling to the night again?

That last Big Boss pic was bugging me so I redid it. I'm happier now so I think I'll let it be

I sketched this one in sketchbook and then colored it in photoshop


Calling to the night

Just a Boss sketch before bed.
I was going to wait till monday to draw something but oh well

Tried photoshop for this one and find that I'm liking the brushes in Sketchbook pro a little better for digital sketching

edit: I'm looking at this the next morning and I still don't feel I'm getting this character. More practice I guess.

I was going to draw a pirate for this mornings sketch but I couldn't think of how to start. So Here you go :) Don't worry, she's bluffing.

Hikari at Dawn

This mornings sketch was just one of those drawings that was in the system somewhere.
As much as I love this series Pokemon is one of those games I lose days with. I haven't picked up the last 2 because I had barely anytime with Monster Hunter (though Black and White is looking tempting).

Morning Hunter

I wonder what I want to be playing...
Someone suggested for my morning sketch I try a medieval theme and this came to mind.
My fav hunter set :) (I hope portable 3 comes out soon)

Octopus lips for breakfast

With the news that Yukito Kishiro may be putting the series Battle Angel Alita - Last Order on hiatus I thought this would be appropriate for this mornings sketch.
I hope he can come back to the series one day.

Morning sketch

Just a quick sketch of nobody in particular.

Still trying out Sketchbook.
Wanted to try using a few layers.
I think I'm starting to like it for what it is.


Stay frosty

Just a quickie in photoshop before bed

MGS's queen of ice
Good times

Keeping it Rowdy

Well another quick sketch with Sketchbook pro after work. The heel version of the character from the previous post. I haven't used layers yet and I'm wondering if I can layer paint strokes (at the moment one stroke just overlays the other ah!)

until next time

Time to get a little Rowdy

Trying out Autodesk Sketchbook pro today after work today. I found out afterwards how to access layers :)

Guess which game I've been playing.

No place like...

Well that last pic went no where fast, oh well
I really don't know what to draw at the moment.
I'm sure I'll get through what ever it is that's blocking me.
Until then,
