I'm a huge comic, film, and horror nerd! I've been drawing my whole life, but recently started to take it seriously. Mostly looking for feedback, and to meet other artists! Don't get too excited I'll mostly post practice stuff, and doodles.
I specialize in digital art, doodling, illustration, pen and ink.
I've been really busy lately. I took a break that was supposed to be a 10 minute doodle break, and this was the result. Well, its the inks of the sketch result. I have no idea if the colors will work the way I intend, but I'll post those after they're finished.
This started as something I was doing for fun, but turned into a very strenuous exercise on how to work with this many light sources.
The inks for the annual "Joker tries to destroy Christmas" I do each year
I have returned! And here are the finished turtles.
The inks for the turtles
We were having a thunder storm, so I figured I’d do a sketch waiting for my markers to get here. I ended up getting carried away and inking it right away. I put a few layers of fixatif on it, and I'm hoping that'll stop the paint/ink from bleeding too much when I apply the markers.
Next up is the finalized sketch. Specifically when I'm working on prints and commissions I do a detailed final sketch. It makes the inking/painting process a lot faster.
Second up in the "uploading progress pieces since I get questions about my art process" is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle print I'm working on for a convention. This is the rough sketch, next up I'll clean it up and do my guide lines for inking. Hopefully I won't have to redraw Donatello
I love horror. Jordan Peele's visuals always inspire me to draw really weird stuff.
Just a quick warm up doodle. Nothing special.
While I was drawing this months ago, my tablet pen fell apart in my hand. It was bizarre and shocking, and then I completely forgot about this piece even existed. The print that almost never was.
I needed to practice some techniques for some Star Wars prints, so I decided I was going to try to draw The Joker in a more modern tux. Don’t ask, it makes sense in my head. There are a bunch of anatomical errors in this, but it did its job so I'm not too worried about it.
Another "Sick Day Scarecrow" I did recently getting over a cold. There's too much comic stuff to get into to explain this, but in summary its a parallel universe Scarecrow I decided to design who is more of a superhero. Kinda.
Since folks like the one of Mars, I figured I should upload this one as well. Same concept, but I think the Mars one worked better for the commission.
Warm up inking practice doodle. I was practicing a certain inking technique for a commission.
A very random doodle I did for warm-up while working on commissions. I don't think it helped much other than working with little line work and stark lighting.
A poster I was working on that I never finished. I might go back to it eventually.
I'm not completely happy with the coloring on this, so I might redo it later. I really wanted to take my hand at the more colorful old comic style for Two Face, but I'm terrible at working with pinks.
Just some time wasters I did. I would explain it, but it would require me to go into way too much comic nerd information. Its essentially a comic character that I redesigned (no its not the Joker). I really love concept art, and character design. I'm really not good at it, but I delve into it periodically for fun.
Another print I did. Get ready, I'm getting close to uploading my worthless doodles rather than finished pieces I've actually worked on.
I've been getting questions about how I create my art here, so I figured I would upload some progress pieces. Here's the first one! I was listening to the Westworld season 2 soundtrack which always makes me want to draw Harvey (for some reason). I wasn't really practicing anything in particular, just doodling. It was fun to just let my hand wander, though I think the sketch was much better than the inking I did.
