Master copy of the famous Jacques-Louis David painting Napoleon Crossing the Alps. Completely hand painted in Ps. A friend was kind enough to let me borrow their face. The piece is for a Type and Image project where we had to lay out and design a magazine article. Mine was Ralph for Emperor by Ralph Wanger. The concept was that "Ralph" was super imposing himself upon a famous emperor, cutting his face out from a photo and roughly taping it over a print or what have you that he owned. So yes, the tape is intentional. :P
Waaaaaayyyy too many hours in Ps

Final ref sheet for my main protagonist in my game. Her name is Dahlia.
The setting is in the 1840s during the height of the Oregon Trail usage. The wagon train she's a part of drives through a patch of land so full of angry dead that they manage to actually manifest, and try to kill everyone in the caravan. Dahlia's motivation is simply sheer survival. She has no child, no husband, nothing. Only her will to live keeps her going.
More on her and the rest of the game as I create new pieces for it.

My brush pen ran out of ink so I had to move over to using a brown micron for the rest of the session. Gladiator gear!
The second pace was a Pan costume. I took the mask and made it his actual face. We had to draw him with some other mythical creature in a setting.
Same thing with making the mask his actual face. The unicorn was actually a hobby horse. I BSed what little horse anatomy I knew to make it a real unicorn. :P

trying out a new style for when I want to make simple fun cartoons. My paladin I play on WoW because she's adorable.
Playing with my under used brush pen. I'd love to use this kind of line quality on a finished piece. But whenever I try to ink a sketch, I tense up and lose it. Something to work toward. Just some gesture sketches to do something simple and loose and and eye and mouth/nose. No refs.

Ok, back to slightly more serious work.
Done 100% in photoshop.

Went to another Dr. Sketchy's session, this one was a western theme. The costumes, especially the second one, were a lot of fun to draw, and definitely not something I get to do from life often. Model was the lovely Pretty Penny, one of our local burlesque dancers.

A bit of a speed painting done while chatting with people online. About 45 minutes. The focus was my little egg clock on my desk, so not much else got the same amount of rendering care. The time on the clock is when I started.
