pinup image

This image was for an on-line contest. I heard about it at the last minute so I drew and inked the drawing and quickly scaned and colored it at home. I fixed the image up a bit more before posting it here.

Office Christmas Card

These drawing where done for an office christmas card at the studio I work for. They asked for a surfing and beach part scene, and I threw santa in there as well. In on of the earlier sketches I included some charaters from the shows we work on but I could not include them for various legal and copyright reasons. I think the final image turned out alright, I did a bit of painting but kept all the colours very flat.

batman and catwoman drawing

Another sketch club drawing, but this time I went for a less cartoony style. The topic was comic book characters and my drawing is a roof top showdown with cat woman and batman. I drew one version and cleaned it up, but I was not happy with cat woman's pose. After a few tries I got one I was happy with, and then I began to ink the drawing. I did the outlines and then photocopied the drawing, one verion I filled in with flat black and white areas and the other I added some hatching and textures. I think I will colour the flat version because it looks a lot cleaner.

viking drawing, in colour

I've done a painted version of the viking drawing, using flat colour fills for a comic book look. I may do another with some shading and highlights, if I have time.

viking post

This the newest drawing from the sketch club. The topic was vikings and my first thought was those fat ladies that sing at the end of operas, so I drew one being admired by a hoard of viking warrior types.

zombie ink drawing

Our topic in the studio sketch club this week was zombies, and here is the ink drawing I have been working on since Monday. This one was a lot of fun, and is my favorite drawing in this sketch club series. The final image was cleaned up a bit in photoshop. Hopefully, I will have time to add some colour soon.

Colour drawings

Here are 2 versions of the secret agent drawing, as well as the time travel drawing from last week. I tried something a little different with the dinosaur image, going for more of a paintery look with blended colours and loose brush strokes. The secret agent is similar to my other cartoony paintings, with flat colours and a few lighting effects. The first image is the final version, and the second shows the colour fill stage, where the colours have been added but not the lighting or colour adjustment layers.

secret agent post

This week we are doing secret agent as our sketch club topic. I did a pencil drawing and then inked it, here is the image in its various stages. I am working on a colour version, as well as a better version of the space travelling dinosaur from my last post.

time travel 2: space dionsaurs in colour

I liked this drawing from last week, so here are the inked and colour versions. The topic was time travel but this is more of an alternate time-line thing, in which earth was never hit by an asteroid the dinosaurs continued to evolve.

new drawings: time travel and circus

This drawing of the clowns was a quick pen sketch and it could use some clean up, but we moved on to a new topic this week and I had to move on. The new topic was time travel and no one drew anything, so I think we will stick to more specific ideas from now on. Anyway, here are some enteries I did. The first is little Marco, as a kid in the late eighties, and is based on a famous Calvin and Hobbes comic panel. The other image is dinosaurs in space, and last drawing is the sign I put up on the posting wall.

Brian on Vacation

Last week our sketch club topic was Brian on vacation, where we imagined what our buddy Brian Wong was up to on his two week break. Here are some drawings.

This last week out sketchclub topic was "manimal", as in man-animal hybrids. I did a bunch of drawings, and here they are. The first one is a kid in a costume, but the second and third are people at the office combined with creatures; Marco-squirrel and Dean-duck.

backt to school drawing (finished post)

I tweaked the colors a bit for this final posting of the "back to school" image.

back to school: new sketch club drawing

We only did one sketch this week, and because our studio is right on the Sheridan College campus and all the kids are back this week, we chose back to school as our topic. My drawing is a group of random students waiting for the bus.

catbuglar painting

I finished the catburglar image (the villians drawing I did for sketch group at work). I did some colour overlays and added fill lights and some highlights on the character. I was going for a simple and graphic look with out any textures or colour blending.

cavegirl painting update (just about finished)

Another cavegirl painting update, it just needs a few more hours work and it will be complete. I changed the dinosaur colour so it fits better with the rest of the painting, and I filled in most the black shadow areas with blue and purples. I just need to tighten up the painting in some areas and add some more texture to the tree trunk and dino.

sketch group: another villians image

This is a second drawing for the villians topic we had this week. I scanned the pencil sketch, inked version, and did quick digital painting. I used flat colours with a 2-tone multiply layer. I would like to finish this one up a bit more, but I still have that cavegirl painting to finish, good thing this is a long weekend.
