This blog...

...was initially for pieces done on a computer, but has since become a free-for-all. Here you'll find process work (digital and otherwise), sketch pages and studies, sometimes with commentary.

You can see the rest of my work here.

Remember kids : if you can't make pretty designs, at least make pretty lines!

Blasphemous - color key

Someone who understands color muuuuuch more than me helped me arrive at this key, which I plan to make use of going forward.  It was especially useful in breaking up Hailey.  The underside of her hair is darker to pop out her face and shoulderline.  The horns and wings are darker so they no longer consolidate with the hair or  stockings.  Stockings and skin will be assigned a shadow color as well.

Three cheers for gracious art friends!

Tonight's coffeehouse pages include a jam by Jason Hill.

Also, check this shit : I got to remix a Kurt Papstein sketch.

Random demon heads...

...coffeehouse sketches...

...and some more Blasphemous development...

Hailey is from hell.  Holly is from heaven.  They're both common pornstar names, so let's go with that!  As you can see, I'm still experimenting with color process, trying desperately to pull "finished" from "rough."  My problem, as always, is contrast.  Guess I need shadows in there to punch shit, but much work...

This week's page...

...contains some photograph studies, the usual smattering of deeeemoooonz, and a bust of one of Kiguri's characters.  (Full shot coming soon!)

I'm now part of the unofficial Blizzard art blog Just Make It Cool, doing 30 minute lunch exercises with the guys.  We'll see how long this lasts...

And hey, wow, Hai Phan did this awesome sculpt based on one of my rejected Darksiders concepts!  Rookie 3D artists take note : Hai did this from a black and white three quarter line drawing no more detailed than the one above, proving once and for all that baller modelers don't need nicely rendered paintings and orthos to do quality shit.  *tips hat to Hai*

Random awkward interaction of the week : I was at a grocery store, ringing up a sandwich and a drink before lifedrawing.  The total came to $6.66.

Me : Well that doesn't bode well.
Cashier : Excuse me?
Me : That doesn't bode well.
Cashier : What doesn't?
Me : The total.
Cashier : Why?
Me : 666?  Number of the beast?  Satan?
Cashier (who is at least 40 years old) : I've never heard anyone say that.
Me : ...

<---more head studies

Blasphemous -- Kiguri RMX

How I know today is going to be awesome : This morning I was surprised with a Blasphemous pinup by my lady, Kiguri.  So fucking flattered...

Clearly, I'm into girls with line fetishes.  <3 <3 <3

Blasphemous - combo

I figure, if the two merged, they'd become some manner of corrupted angel.

Also, I thought of the name "Holly Grail" for the angel, but eh...too cheesy.
