Sketch-a-day 012 013

So Here's two more. Today's and yesterdays. Thinking I'm going to quit doctoring them up now. Getting to be taking too much time on relatively quick sketches. Learned a ton of new post processing techniques on the way though.

The duo of death was formed in the early seventies by two very confused siblings. No one is sure where they are from or where they reside now, but back in their glory days, these two would knock off whole towns with their goons. Last seen blowing up a bank and the money with it. EDIT: Forgot to mention the male is very ashley wood inspired.

Pigs. I hear they make great balloons.

Sketch-a-day 008 009 010 011

Catching up a bit, been too busy to get these up and scanned. But here are four. They are actually in reverse order, but blogspot is too picky for me to chance uploading them again. Just random things, one poster for aoi, and and a life drawing sketch.

Still gotta do todays.

Sketch-a-day 007

He dug six feet deep, just as he was told. And with that act felt the grip of death, the cold.

So I just started watching six foot under. This is what came to mind when I thought of he title "Six Feet Under". Fun one to draw.

Still behind as I take too long on these. May just have to do some quickies to catch up. Not something so complete. But for the rest of the day I'm going to work on an AOI poster. And yes, I'm counting it towards my sketch-a-day goal. Cheating...  a bit.

Sketch-a-day 006

Mary J. Weather always wondered if faeries existed. Till one day she did discover, three of them, very wicked. They tricked her soon after, then ate her whole. Leaving only the dust of her kind soul.

Drew this in the car on the way down to Columbus, on my way back to starting another semester. Hopefully school work doesn't get too in the way of doing these sketch-a-days. May have to break on quality every once in awhile.

Sketch-a-day 005

Old Donny Smearwitz is not a friend of the U.S. Postal Service. He's never forgiven them for losing his package back in 1913.

I'm a day behind due to the thing I was doing yesterday being null and void, because it was a reference copy practice, and I lost the reference. Nother one coming tonight probably after midnight.

Sketch-a-day 004

Fly right space monkeys. 

First time I've doctored up a sketchbook page in awhile. Will probably be doing this some more. Painting digitally is nice and all, but all I have is a file after I'm done, and I like to flip through my own artwork because I'm all narcissistic like that.

I draw this astronaut every year. He always looks a bit different, but he's always viewed from the front. Maybe this will act as a reminder next year, to change it up a bit. May just redraw him tomorrow though. I want to draw him floating in space with the glass of his helmet shattered about the in the dark. 

So it's about time I plugged the guys I took this sketch-a-day idea from:

Thom Glick- Columbus Illustrator, whose worked nationally, and makes all of us CCAD grunts proud. He originally put forth this challenge to his group of friends from what I gathered. I in no way know him personally, but you should check out his stuff anyway, because it's good.

Dave Groff- Crazy good artist and professor at CCAD. Also keeping a sketch-a-day blog. If you see this Mr. Groff, it's going to look like I'm sucking up, but think nothing of it, as deep, deep down, I hate humanity. Can illustrator's become super villians? 

I need to start a link section here, but the side layout is just so clean looking. I may just have to start one on Oondu, and just stick and Oondu link over there. Also, everyone who just read this go to Oondu, because you will be a better person because of it.

Something a bit less concept today, bit more fun.

Sketch-a-day 002

The second day of the sketch-a-day activity. 

So far so good, have not forgot. I consider this a good sign of things to come. 

So I jumped into painter again and painted out this guy. The word tesla popped into my head today when I woke up, mostly due to Fallout 3 bingeing from last week. That game, it's too good. But I can't help but associate Tesla technology to nazis. Mostly due to a videogame I used to play alot of, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, yeah I play too many. Plus, nazis always make for a fun illustration. Stopped on this one before I got too carried away with it. His name? Jocko Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenberger.

Sketch-a-day 001

So I decided to digitally paint today for a bit. So nice having a functioning tablet again that doesn't like to make squiggly lines for no reason.  
No relation in the sketches, just whatever I decided to pull off the top of my head. There were quite a few more, but all these were yellow based and looked nice together. Just overlapped the painter windows and nabbed a screenshot. None of them took more than 10-15 minutes. 

Been inspired by a teacher, and a few other people to do a sketch a day. Last year I lasted a month. Lets see how long I can keep this going. May not be updated everyday, but every few days in a single post. Count this as day one.
