Sketch Dump: Samurai Guy

Samurai
Time Spent: About 4 hours.

I’ve been creatively empty the past few weeks but I had to draw something.  I’ve been sketching a lot of punk-ish cyborg girls and figured I’d head that direction yet again but it turned into this guy. I’ve been experimenting with negative space and I’ve been describing my color pallet as “Icees”. I like this guy. But I don’t love him. Movin’ forward.

Digital Painting: Franken-Strange

Untitled-1
Glenn Strange as The Monster. Time Spent: 14 hours

Boy oh boy. Remember a year ago when I said my goal for 2017 was to get better at painting? Of course you don’t remember but I said it. I did 4 or 5 digital paintings and by March I slipped back into my comfortable style. Well I’m starting up again. One of my favorite artists has to be Basil Gogos of Famous Monsters of Filmland fame. We lost him last year, so think of this as a tribute and learning experience.

So what did I learn?

 

  1. Basil Gogos is on a whole ‘nother level.
  2.  It takes forever.
