Commander Naiades and her Death Squid Army

I figured I'd do this one using Flash since I haven't used it for a while. It was gonna be a full painting but who has time for that? I use reference whenever I draw something I don't know that well. I went to google and searched for "bearded guy lying down next to giant squid" and I found this. Google is awesome.

Oh and Happy Easter!!!

Rump Attacker

I've been working on personal projects which I'd rather not post til it's done so that's why I haven't been posting often. My main project will look similar to the monster above. :) Been busy at work too. We just finished season one for "Growing Up Creepie" and I'm really hoping to land a job on a crazy-cool action show at the same studio.

Poor Man's Sketchbook

Behold 'The Poorman's Sketchbook!' Made from copy paper and a manilla folder cut down to about 8" x 8 1/2", and 5 medium-sized binder clips. Some co-workers and I were going to go out sketching during lunch and of course I forgot my sketchbook at home...so I made one...and I like it better than any other sketchbook that I ever bought. You get to draw your own cover!

Below is a page of people I drew at the new (updated) mall.

I haven't posted in a long time so I wonder if anyone will even see this, hehe...

Jay report #1

There's an awesome fat dog at work named Jay. He is sneaking around the office as I speak checking out people's trash cans. He waddles when he walks but he hauls ass when he's in trouble. Today he stole a coworker's roastbeef sandwich. Not the first time either. :)

Nature Girl Painting

A new post?! So soon?!! Yeah so I painted this as a demo in a cartooning class that I'm teaching. I finished it at home after the class and I'm pretty happy with it. Simple stuff like this is always fun to do.

It has some irridescent colors on it so it sparkles in the light on her eyes and the wings on the bug. It's also on the green spots in the background. Hope you like it! :D

Serpent Witch Aquaria & Nature Kid!!!

I was going to show some students a painting demo so I planned to do a really simple drawing for it. What started as just a head sketch (I did the prelim sketch on a post it note) became almost a full illustration. Oops! Well I don't have time to paint it anytime soon, definately not during classtime. So then I did this:

Much simpler and I can definately finish it in at most a couple hours...and I like it in all it's simplicity. :) Oh yeah, I'm going to paint them in acrylics.

I'm only able to post a few more random sketchbook pages for the time being...I have a Zelda piece that I am working on too so I'll post that whenever I get a chance to finish it.

Sergio Headcanon

This is Sergio Headcanon. The above picture is after a weapon upgrade and a lot of practice. Below is when he first got his headcanon attatched (I may do a comic book showing how after I finish this other project I got going). Coincidentally his last name was already 'Headcanon'. Funny how things like that work out. :)

The top image was superimposed onto a photograph I took cause it looked cool (to me at least) and the other two were painstakingly drawn onto post it notes. Sweet!

Lotsa Starbucks sketchbook shtuff

A lot of these were done at Starbucks and the colored ones at Sherman Oaks Galleria. Lots of goofy people. The top picture of that model and the fourth picture were done from magazines...they weren't at Starbucks unfortunately.

This is the third post in a row that I've posted stuff dominantly brown so next post will be more colorful, hopefully. ;) Thanks for any feedback!

Annie Poem

Hopefully a big step up from the pencil version. I guess this has Tim Burton's influence without stepping on his toes as far as style goes. You know, dark characters with a sense of humor. A light side.

Also, there's a lot of gimmicky 'goth' characters all over stores like Hot Topic and whatever. It kind of cheapens the genre. To me anyway. I just want to create characters with a little more substance...not just icons. That's one of the reasons why I like Tim Burton. His characters are real, not just sticker-and-lunch-box-fodder. You can stick them in just about any situation and come up with a fun story. Just my thoughts.... ;)

Scrap the Bandit Metal Slime

I used to play a lot of videogames and still do when I get the chance. One of the first games I got was 'Dragon Warrior' (aka Dragon Quest) which came free with a Nintendo Power subscription. The slimes that were in the game are super popular since Dragon Quest is up to part VIII now with more coming out this year.

This painting I did after work a while back with a goal to finish that night. I could've made a detailed painting out of it like making the background more like a map but this was more just for fun. 'Scrap the Bandit Metal Slime' is what I call him.

Look at all these toys they have just for these slimes!:
