Ran out of time :/

Still working on speeding up.  Took way too long to get this one where it is.
I just watched hunger games yesterday finally.  After reading the books, I felt like it was a pretty faithful movie adaptation.  The actors weren't too bad either.  I was afraid that I would hate Peeta because I cant stand the actor.  He did alright though.  Jennifer Lawrence didn't do too bad either as Katniss.  She was pretty believable as the character.  Speaking of the girl on fire...

Nothing new today

I celebrated my birthday in style with my fam and friends eating some burgers and whatnot so I didnt get anything done today.  I was halfway through a zbrush sculpt until the day went nuts at work, so alas I have nothing new to show...
But I found something old!

I did this one sometime last year.  I was trying to stick to a specific style, but I don't think it quite turned out.  Her design was fun though.

Not the cat.  The Spiderman.  The REAL Spiderman.  Not the fake emo dancing one.

Spent about 45 min on this one.

Quick sketch of the day.

Poor Ben

This is often how I find my poor son.  His two older sisters love him SO much they need to nearly smother him to death every time they see him.  That kid is either going to be super tough, or extremely traumatized when he gets bigger.  Enjoy :)

I have always been a huge fan of Batman and Catwoman being a couple.  Don't ask me why.  I think that's why I liked the "Hush" graphic novel so much.  Their dynamic just works.  A billionaire business man fighting crime at night and a master thief who causes crime pretty much always.  The perfect couple.

Latest is still in the works

I have been working on a little ditty for the last few nights.  I havent had more than a half hour each time so its not quite finished yet.  Instead, I'll post a few pieces from my FuturePoly class I took a few months back.  The class was super awesome.  It was taught my the amazing Horia Dociu.  I learned a ton from that dude.

This assignment to get the class members to explore new techniques in getting a lot of interesting detail in a short amount of time.  Basically, image searching is your friend and you should overlay pics to get a map to paint your character with.  :)

This guys was a character that we went through and mapped out everything about him.  From good guy or bad guy, all the way down to what genre of game are making him for.  It was an awesome assignment and I pretty do that with all my characters now.

Alrighty off to bed.

Claire tha Bear

Here is the latest.  Trying to loosen up a bit.


Man I keep doing these too late in the day...I guess that's what happens when crunch time at work comes.  This never really started out as anything.  I just sketched out some shapes and went with it.  Took me longer than I hoped.  Still super fun though.

Old Mans

I really had to force out this one today.  I wasn't able to sit down until about midnight, but a goal is a goal.  Its is seeming ever more odd to me that whenever I sit down with nothing in mind to draw, that I always draw some old crotchety dude.  I guess old guys have the most interesting faces to draw.  So many years of craziness displayed on a single canvas...Now I'm just getting too deep.  OLD MANZ PWN!

I really need to get arting on the side again, so I'm trying to come up with a new piece every day.  Wish me luck :) You can thank my daughter for this topic.  "Bananapants!" was the first thing that came out of her mouth when we asked her what I should draw, so we ran with it :)

Bananapants can be quite controversial when taken out of context.

And this is my daughter's depiction.  The bananapants kind of turned into flowerpants, but I didn't argue.

She's a freaking genius.


I need to put a good ol' sketchdump in here.  For now I will leave you with this.  Get ready, I'm going to try the whole "a post a day for as long as I can" thing.  Wish me luck
