Moderation in Panic

It's been a crazy few weeks. Called back in for some freelance, let off again, and producing some more examples of work to show at San Diego Comic Con. Haven't posted them because a) still ironing them out and b) need to make printing examples and integrating into portfolio priority one.

This update is to more or less assure you (actually, myself) that keeping to a dedicated workflow and update schedule is still at the forefront of my mind.

Now, who else is hitting up Comic Con?

Sketch Dump 7/8 - 7/9

Went to a local cafe in Long Beach, Portfolio's last night with a few art friends and Liz.

Today drew the view looking out from my balcony window while sitting on the couch. Here's a photo for comparison.

Tonight went to Starbucks with Liz and had the foresight to bring the 4"x6" pad.

Concepts Abound!

Some character sketches - the kids are reiterations of older characters I had while the eye lamp/tree thingie was just for goofing around.

Digital Painting

I've been watching free vids at Digital Art Tutorials - it's been giving me a better understanding of how others work through PhotoShop for painting. The recent freelance work taught the same lessons with Illustrator. So I'm taking a real focused look at how others approach mediums in an attempt to see if there's faster approaches than those I'm used to.

Anywho, the image is the result from staying up too late, watching tutorials, and painting in CS2 for about 40 minutes.
