This is digital painting I did for the sketch club at my studio. The topic was "beauty and the beast", and since we had two weeks to finish I decided to paint my pen drawing in photoshop. I tried out some intense colours, and I kept some of the black outlines around the characters to preserve the flat, graphic look of the pen drawing. The other image is from the previous week's topic "how did that get there". My drawing was a bit r-rated but most people seemed to think it was funny.

This creature model is the second part of a sketch club exercise at work. I drew the sphinx girl character for the frist part (see the previous post), and I chose a character drawn by Elena Panova to model and texture. I tried to match her painting style in the look of the textures, but I also added some grit and detail to the surfaces. The second image is a poster I made for our company Halloween party. I filled in the black with inks and then cleaned the whole thing up in photoshop.

This is an older character that I fixed up a bit for a sketch club event at my studio. A group of people are posting character designs in the first week, and then next week a group of modellers will chose one each and model them in 3d. This sphinx girl is my entry, but I will also model a character from someone else's design, so there will be more posts from this topic in the weeks to come.

This is small watercolour study I did over the lunch hour this week. A group of artists from my studio drove up to the rural farmland that is just north of the Sheridan campus in Oakville. This sketch took about 30 minutes and is four by eight inches.

This is a new drawing from the pipeline studios sketchclub. The topic was zombie sports and I drew a kids soccer game caught in a zombie outbreak. This sketch was a pencil drawing with a quick inking job. It could use a bit of clean up in photoshop, but I am moving forward with a comic project so there is no time.

This week the topic was monkey business and did a few drawings and character designs. I made two versions of the snowboarding monkey (one clean and one that is a bit more adult). The other image is a monkey fight with various chimps, gorillas, baboons and monkeys all going to war. I posted the initial outline drawing and second version with completed inks.

We have the sketch club up and running at work and our topic this week was monster rehab. I'm showing some mythological creatures in a rehab clinic doing the classic trust building exercise where you fall backwards and other people catch you. I've posted the pencil skech, first ink, and the final version with thick outlines and photoshop clean up.

These drawings are various takes on the gaint castle needed for the story. At first the idea was to incorporate cathedral architectual elements into the castle design, then the story changed and the castle was carved to be from giant vines that where hard like stone. Finally, it changed again to floating islands and docks for the flying airships.
