A harlequin warm-up

I drew a bunch of harlequins as warmups… Was gonna finish them all but as I was finishing this one a quarter of one wisdom tooth broke off, so I really don’t feel like finishing them…. at the moment I kinda blame the drawings for my current pain as opposed to my sweet tooth, love of fizzy drinks, and my being super old and still having my dumb wisdom teeth….
Anyway, I will probably finish them later when I’m in less pain. They are kind of Dragon Age looking….

Thorn from Battleborn

Got Battleborn this week. Lots of fun. I like the distance fighters like Thorn and the Marquis, but I still have lots of characters to unlock. The game was crazy cheap, I assume because Overwatch came out this week…. I really want to play that too…


Doodle while I was thinking about what to do with my life. Looks like I wasn’t paying enough attention to the drawing…. I clearly couldn’t decide if this was a witch or a mage…..

Some of the color tests for The Darkness Abridged. Tell me if any jump out as a good direction for me to continue experimenting….. not sure if I want to go to do flat color or simple cel shading for light.
I was looking at artists like Henri Riviere, Moebius, Hokusai, and 19th century posters. Then a few contemporary artists as well
i’m behind on my schedule for the comic unfortunately… I got depressed earlier last week and thought i was gonna give up on it. Now that I decided to continue my laptop has decided it is going to die… I cant wait to get back to my desktop.

a Xenomorph mermaid sketch for #MerMay

a Xenomorph mermaid sketch for #MerMay
I love Alien… has such wonderful designs. It was on TV the other day and of course I had to stop everything to watch it.
I’ll clean this up next week when I’m back at my cintiq… Drawing with the tablet really hurts me.

May Sketch A Day 09 Foggy Bog and 10 Flyn’ Above
caught up posting! The bog was an experiment that went the wrong direction but I like the Flyn’ plane mainly because for me it was something different… I rarely draw vehicles but it is something i’m going to try and do more

May Sketch A Day 07 and 08

May Sketch A Day 07 in the Grove and 08 The Seascape that Started out as an Upside-Down Tree
Behind on posting, it was a hectic weekend filled with visiting people and the worst allergy attack I’ve had in a very long time….
The seascape isn’t the greatest but it was a journey that took the painting from being an upside-down tree to a beehive to a seascape….

Sketch A Day May 6

Sketch A Day May 6. Exit the Ruins
I’m growing really frustrated with these paintings…. I’m gonna try something different for tomorrows.

MerMay 2

Quickie Fish-Up for #MerMay…. I kinda meant for yesterday’s mermaid to be a one-off but I did a bunch of mermaids while I was talking to an acquaintance today… So there will probably be posted over the weekend… perhaps as a batch.

Sketch A Day May 5

Sketch A Day May 05. Heart of the Ruins
This is how I think the ruins would look like in Call of Cthulhu… but it would probably be more askew and angular….

Sketch A Day May 01

Gonna try and do a sketch each day in May
Gideon and Guy are two members of one of the neighbor’s households in The Darkness Abridged. Poor Guy has to make sure his cousin Gideon doesn’t get himself killed in some back alley… Let to his own devices he would.
I’m going to be away from my beloved Cintiq for a few weeks and will have to use my tablet…. So less sketches because I can’t stand drawing with the tablet. Painting is A-okay, but drawing is just too slow and frustrating on a tablet for me….
