Trick or Cheesecake

An idea for a Halloween themed picture and an excuse to draw some cheesecake.

Still playing with the style of Bruce Timm and Shane Glines:)

A familiar work

Revisiting an older pic I sketched a while back.
As part of a series I'll get around to the others

Revisiting Oz

I did a quick sketch for this weeks theme and as I was uploading it I stumbled across a sketch from last year that I had played around with.

It's interesting how much my ideas on a theme vary over just a year

Sketching after work

Just a few of the recent sketches from the weekly themes from work :)

Race Day 2011

It's been I while since I drew Ai chan and I hadn't attempted drawing a full bike before. So after Frankensteining a bike out a couple of references I thought I'd have a go at Shigenori Soejima's style of shading.

The Grid girl someone's OC who I'd been meaning to get around to drawing. (She's not too helpful with that umbrella , is she?)

While the results are mixed but I'm pretty happy all round though I know I'll do better next time :)

Unicorn cheesecake

Something a little different.

A couple of fellows workers and I have gotten together [link] to attack a different drawing theme every week. 4 weeks in and this week's theme was unicorns...

I want to use the themes as a chance to experiment a little with styles and ideas so with that in mind here's Unicorn girl in the style of Shane Glines! Inspired in part by the Unicorn man (I'll leave you to look that one up yourselves)

Lagann Impact

Yoko from Gurren Lagann. A seriously awesome animated series.

I actually did the linework for this one a while ago but at the time I'd lost the drive to color it. Going through some folders i found it again and felt like having a go at it.

"Don't forget. Believe in yourself! Not you, who i believe in. Not me, who believes in you. Believe in you.. who believes in himself!"

If you have'nt seen this series go watch it...NOW!

New Blog?

Hey there,

Just a heads up on a new blog I'm contributing too.

It's a group of fellow animators from the studio I'm working at. We've decided to get together and attack a theme every week so I should have some new stuff there (hopefully once a week :P).

And...we're back.

Life got busy for a bit so I haven't much for time for drawing. I feel so rusty already.
Just some Femshep sketching to get back into the swing of things.

Chili Bomb

Okay, something a little different.
I had noticed I'd been drawing the same thing quite a bit recently so I asked a friend to suggest a theme.

A fast food chick, he says. Make it a Taco girl...and design the logo to, he says.
Like I said something a little different. Thanks for the challenge :)

So over the weekend I managed to squeeze this one. I had a fun and it feels good to not copy someone else's design for a change...hmmm
When I find some time I'll try to color it

Fiery Soul

Seems I've been drawing Monster Hunter a lot recently.

I was thinking about the first time I was able to take down Akantor. Onslaught Hammer with the Rathalos Soul set. Good times :)

Like a butterfly

I did this for some folks online

One of my favorite sets playing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. I remember discovering the joy of evade+2 up whilst farming Ol' Silver here for Rathalos Rubies. Butterfly S with Tranq Guru Gemmed in, armed with The True Devil Slicer.

Not to shabby a result, though not having much time at the moment it feels a little rushed.

Fire from here

Fire in the snow

Monster Hunter again :P

With that Narga set and Djinn, I'd say she's playing tag with a snow kitty.
I felt like pushing a sketch today. I went strait in with color instead of my usual grey scale tonal approach. It was nice to get a feeling of the end result from the start if that makes any sense. Definitely something I'll do again

anyways, enjoy

Pretty in pink

I was just going to get back into some light sketching...
I'd always meant to draw the Rathian armor set from Monster Hunter Unite. While it looks pretty sweet, it's not one I've ever made as it seemed a bit excessive for a gathering type set.

anyways enjoy

Monster Hunter Monday?

Okay, time to shake off some rust. Being a Monday (and a holiday), I thought it was time time to return to the hunt.
Anyways this here is the Yukomo armor set.


Thinking with Portals

Here's a Chell sketch I was playing with a few weeks ago. It's not quite going where I was hoping so I'll move on. I guess after not drawing for a while I get a little rusty :P
As for the game, not as hard as the first but still a brilliant game.

Anyways, enjoy

Cappuccino Girl Redux

I showed the previous pic to a friend today and they gave me a few pointers about car rendering, in particular RED cars, so I though I'd get right back into it and repaint the car so to speak.

I'm so much happier with it now, Thank you:)

Coffee inspired

She likes Cappuccinos.

I've been pretty busy recently with work, but I've been itching to get something of my own done.

As I haven't drawn a car before I thought I'd give it a shot. It was fun but damn hard. I was also trying something with the coloring but I don't feel I was as successful as I wanted to be. I may recolor it one day.

Drawn in sketchbook and colored in photoshop

Beyond WIP

Part of my New Years resolution was to try more with my illustration but it takes so long it's hard to keep at it!!!! so I'd thought I'd upload the progress.

"Beyond Good and Evil"

2011 Incoming!

Happy New Years everyone.
I wanted to draw a bunny for New years and then I got a little carried away:)
Had fun with this one. Part of my new year's resolutions is to draw more of my own stuff and so it begins.
