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.

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.

studio sketch club update: villains

This drawings is supposed to be an evil scientist type who is bringing some kind of monster creature to life, but no one at work seemed to get it. I am working on a second image for this topic that I hope will be a bit more effective. I had a chance to ink and colour the mad scientist character but not the rest of the image, I want to do a new one every day so I have to keep moving on.

knights sketch club posting

These are two more drawings for the studio sketch club. This time the topic was knights. The first sketch was the image I posted on the drawing wall, and the second is an inked version of the knight character.

cavegirl, more painting progress

This is a second work in progress post for my cave girl drawing. This time I have given the dinosaur some attention and added some more leaves in the background. It still needs a lot of work of the painting is starting to take shape. Next I will experiment with colour shifting the dinosaur because I am not crazy about the green.
