Rhino beatle zombie dragon

Things have been a little hectic for me recently to put it lightly, so I haven't been doing much drawing, sadly. I've been working on photoshop WIPs of mine, but nothing to finish. So here's something I drew up for a Secret Santa thing I did on another site. It's a zombie rhino beetle dragon.

I'll try to get more things done, I swear. x_x

I'm working on some ideas do draw now, and once I get home, I'm going to watercolor my ass off, but until then, here's an oldie but a goodie.

This was done back in May as a private commission. There were a lot of things learned with it. The piece is done on smooth bristol, 11x17. What the commissioner wanted was a propaganda like piece of a character of hers, so I used Russian constructivist art as a reference for things like the color palette and composition.

The paper was stained with tea before I started coloring, but after I had inked the piece.  I used microns to do the inking to get that crisp, geometric feel of propaganda art.

Mistakes made that I have learned from:
- Treated paper and markers are not friends. It was incredibly difficult to get large spaces of color to be the same even tone.

- I should have used some kind of stencil for the buttons on his coat to all be the same uniform size.

-I'm not really sure how I feel about the white lines to separate the different black shapes. I should have either left them as implied shapes, or left the tea stained paper blank instead of using white. 

-Tape does not always stop marker from bleeding off of a straight line. x_x It can get under there.

Over all though, it was a blast to work on, even if it did murder every color I used on it. x_x I shouldn't have used marker to do flat coloring admittedly, but at the time it was really the only medium I was using.

Winter Break

My excuse for not posting. I'm back at my parents house and baby sitting for the week. This is my mom's cat, Gabby. She is fat and sassy.

Paper Cuts

A paper cut out piece of my Draenei paladin from WoW. she's 100% construction paper cut outs. I thought it would be a fun thing to do, and for the most part it was. Working with the color limitations was a bit frustrating, but It's been suggested to me to use patterned and craft papers for my next one, so we'll see how that works out. It's a nice change of pace from drawing, even if I do hate cutting out and pasting such small pieces. x_x  She's going to be laminated here in a bit, but I wanted to scan her before the shine from the laminate would mess with it.

Derp gryphon

I finished my animation of my gryphon, and here's the scene he was placed in for it. Unfortunately, due to skin weights issues, he couldn't be articulated, so the animation is more of a test run of the animation path than a final deal.

Have some more scene renders.

Look! A profile bust facing the right! Gasp!

Sorry. When I don't have a whole lot of time t dedicate to something, I tend to default to busts. :X These are more me being able to draw SOMETHING for myself than any kind of finished piece.

This is Marrow. My spirit medium monster. :B He's very nice.

done 100% in photoshop.

Bad Romance

Inspired by Lady Gaga's song as well as the music video for Bad Romance. Say what you will about her, but she has some interesting visuals in her videos. The stark white and red along with that crazy white latex outfit made me want to draw something similar.  So I guess this is my homage to her and that song.

finals are over for me on the 10th! So excited to be done!
