The sketchdaily theme for today was 28 Days Later or zombies or concrete. I picked concrete and did a study of some weeping Angels from Doctor Who. I used some new brushes trying to get that concrete feel. These are the brushes Felix loves to use that I just can’t get a handle on. Coulda worked longer on it but today is cleaning day and I am actually going to clean instead of procrastinate.
In addition Illustration Friday’s theme was reflect, soooo I reflected the image for a sneaky double post. Yes the lighting doesn’t make any sense but you know neither does the Doctor.
Been trying to finish this proposal drawing. Almost there I guess.
We only have one tablet and as of late I have felt overly attached to drawing with it. Felix has a great portrait he is working on so I braved the great big world of drawing on paper. How quickly I got stuck to the tablet and all of its digital glory! Well here is my late night drawing. The first in a long time. I didn’t know how to start so drew the bottom phone first, which has multiple giant cracks in it (Just like in real life). Good fun and a great reminder to loosen up and go back to my pre-digital roots.
Snowy day. Boyfriend at work. Listening to the radio and trying to practice after a long absence. Reference.
I was tidying and sorting through some stuff when I came across my portfolio from college! Some of the paintings are horrifically embarrassing but some of the images I still have some fond memories of making.
I am sharing my favorites as to not let these get lost into time. The originals are long gone and all I have are some printouts that magically haven’t been destroyed since 2005.
This one was always one of my favorites as I loved painting the animals at the time. This was a set of behemoths (green) in the hold of Noah’s ark with some friendly rhinos, a hippo, some weird looking elephants, and an ugly bug.
This skydiving dog got me a lot of praise at the time. I think it was the personality/face of the dog.
These last two were based on some stories from Aesop’s fables.
I had made some tweaks then Felix colored the poster for the Kedzie stop market! Yay teamwork!
So I have not been posting recently because I have been super busy with some freelance work! Yay! I have been creating some 3d renders and Solidworks models for two different companies on top of trying to get some personal work done, volunteering with Chicago Bike Buddies and having a full time job. I love being busy.
An old sketch from the past did pass my way and I thought I’d share. A few years ago i was into combining human anatomy with other things, mainly plants. This one however I tried to combine metal with anatomy on an 18x 24 or whatever sheet. It is totally lost for the ages and only a crappy phone pic left! I’d love to make and finish some like this.
Working on the new Kedzie Stop Market poster and flyer. Better late then never. Half way done with the line work. Gunna finish the building, frame, text, coloring…gah maybe I am not halfway done. Either way. Keep the ball rolling!
The Bob Ross Illustration I made is on sale at Urban Outfitters and on the PBS website! Nice!
Rough sketches of a dragster for a possible beer label. Didn’t get to spend as much time on them as I would have liked. Especially the last one.
