Skull bats like soup too

He's enjoying a bowl of broccoli and cheese soup. :P


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.

Game concept

 This semester I'm taking game design and theory, and I've decided to make a survival horror game set on the Oregon Trail. Up top is the base figure for my soon to be character sheet, and below is a rough sketch of the protagonist, Dahlia, along with one of the creatures in the game. It has fingers for teeth! I'll post the final sketch of the ref sheet as well as the final draft of it as they're finished.

I'm always terribly happy when I can sneak in odd pictures into school projects. This guy makes an upper and lower case E, and is a visual representation of the sentence "an eel with ears eats eggplant eagerly." He's going to get painted, this is just the base sketch. I'll post the final version of the assignment later!

figure week.

The only two poses from SOCA I really cared for. The last one my friends said we should all draw her as a cool demon chick so I did. Despite not being on the ball that session it was lots of fun.

From the session today at Dr. Sketchy's RVA. Our first male model (Parker Galore). He was lots of fun to draw. Did some great poses, and had some awesome costumes. This page was just 5min a piece, and I was working more on just loosening up rather than being dead accurate.

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

Nerd glory

I just bought my first real set of dice to play D&D with, so glamor shots had to happen. I have a nice DSLR now with a lovely macro lens that I love to use. Gotta love that shallow depth of field!


A really silly cat doodle. It has your nose. :D

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.
