Gesture dump

These are some of my better gesture sketches from this term.  Done anywhere from 1 - 3 minutes.

3 minute life drawing poses.  I have more but I can't quite figured out how to scan pencil sketches correctly.  These are done with a Sharpie so they scan better.

Austin White Lime

Danny Grant and I went painting this morning.  This was mainly a study of depth for me. Oils on canvas

Primtive jungle outpost

Did this one for the school blog.  The whole process was a struggle and I'm still not sure my values are correct.

Haven't been to life drawing in a while so I just searched the internet for some pics to draw from.  About 20 mins a piece.  I need to go back and fix a few things...

Did these for the school blog.  The prompt was something ID since we will be starting Industrial Design this year.  Never draw cars or much of anything with hard surfaces so it's something I really need to do more of.

Here are some quick composition thumbs I have done today.  My next traditional painting for school is going to be entirely up to me so I was just tossing around ideas.  So far, I like the bottom two...

more worky

Kinda screwed up the colors on the big boy so I just put them together in grayscale.

Alien (heavy type) line

Here another line sketch of an alien from the same race/clan as the one before.  He is the "heavy" type, more bulky and slow moving but extremely powerful.  I am doing this because I want to practice designing multiple characters that look like they fit into the same species/world.  I would imagine this is important in the industry. :)

Still working on environments....

Monday, August 22, 2011


With these I am trying to get the general values, mood, and composition established within a certain time frame (1 1/2 hours).  They are rough but I think I might be learning something.

Fire castles or something

Quick environment done tonight

Alien line/color

Okay so I wasn't really happy with the last post of this guy.  I feel too much was indicated and I wanted to really understand what he looked like and how his legs functioned.  So I tried a different technique using a line drawing.   This one is better and pretty quick in terms of time to complete.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for looking!

Alien grayscale

Tried to come up with an interesting design for the alien sketch I did.  I like the idea of him having a mechanical lower body.  I plan on coloring this one.  thanks for looking!

Flamer paint WIP

I really failed the first couple times I painted this guy.  So I wanted to go back and give it another shot this time more painterly.  Probably still spending too much time in certain areas but I wanted the head to be a little more detailed than other parts of his body.  I am about an hour in and this is as far as I've gotten.  I'm going to try bigger blocker strokes for the rest of him so hopefully it won't take much longer.  I really want to get him painted in no more than 2 - 3 hours.

started working on this tonight... It's some form gate to another world or dimension.  The peeps walking towards are in a trance, sort of being sucked in.
