Watch the birdie!

Hello all! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I haven't posted in a while, I know. But, good news. Things are better than they were since I've last posted. Anyhow, here's a bird that I did in Photoshop. Sketched and painted with my Wacom Bamboo. I'm going to keep this short...yeah... Aight, peace out.

Thoughts and Rorschach

Hello, again. So before I launch into explaining this piece I would like to shed some light on what I've been up to and what's been happening lately.

I recently graduated college. Woohoo! It felt that way for about the first two weeks then I began to find myself being extremely bored very often regardless of all the art I was producing. At one point, I wanted to make a phone call using the house phone, so I walked around my house for about thirty minutes to discover that we didn't have a house phone anymore! Makes sense though, who needs one with all these cell-phones nowadays? Then after many profound things going on in my brain, I started to doubt my value as an artist.

BUT! Good news. There are things in the works and they are beginning to look up. I'll be posting up soon, hopefully, on how things turn out. But for now, on to the post!

Very cool character from Watchmen. Reading it again lately. Trying to refresh memory for the movie soon to be released. Lying in sketchbook for a while. Thought it time to post. Materials used: HB Graphite Pencil, Tombow Brush Pen, Prisma Color Markers, White Charcoal. Must take note of charcoal smearing if left in sketchbook for too long.

Peace (haha)

Here's another character from the Batman universe, Cassandra Cain. Also known as the new Batgirl. This was done for one of my friend's girlfriend. She dug the Catwoman I did and requested for Batgirl. I used the same materials as I did on the other ones. This one was pretty fun to do as well. I wasn't too familiar with the character so I had to do some research. Plenty fun. I want to do Solomon Grundy next. If I have time I will. Til' here. Peace

Hey again, I thought I would add another character from the Batman universe. There is a rumor floating around that she may make an appearance in the next movie? Played by Angelina Jolie? Hmm...interesting. I don't know if I agree with that, but I think I can trust the Nolan brothers to make the right decision as they have been doing. Anyhow, plenty fun this one. I used the same materials I used for the Joker. Hope you guys dig it. Peace!

Why So Serious?

Here it is, folks! The tribute that I said I would do for Heath Ledger. RIP Heath, fantastic job as the Joker. If you haven't seen the Dark Knight yet, SEE IT. This piece was especially fun to do for a number of reasons. One, because of all the mixed media that I got to use: HB Pencil, Blue Col-Erase, Red Col-Erase, Green Col-Erase, White Charcoal, and Copic Ink. Two, because it reminds me of the Joker in the new film and how awesome it is! Bottom line, Dark Knight, see it. Peace.

Character Poses

Here's another page from my flatbook. I know I haven't posted in a while, so it's the least I can do. This is a character I'm going to model, texture, rig and animate. Bring it all the way through. I'm still in the process of modeling it, but I'll post up WIP very soon. Til' here! GO LAKERS!!!

The Blues

Hey again! Here's another piece from an illustration class I recently had. Had us do an Art Deco influenced assignment and this is what I came up with, from thumbnail to finished product done digitally. Hope you guys like it. Cheers!

Shy Femme Fatale

Two pieces from one of my recent illustration classes. He gave us archetypes to choose from, ones that weren't of the norm, but that made it all the more fun. We had to do two versions. Of course these started out as rough sketches first. The first version I did traditionally: Colored Pencil, Art Stix, Pen & Ink, and white out. The second version I did digitally: Flash and Photoshop. That pretty much sums it all up. Til' next time!

Ver. 1

Ver. 2

Happy Birthday to Me!

Wahoo! Tis' my... or... twas my birthday the other day! (January 22) Honestly, I don't feel much different at all. But I did get to celebrate with my family and some of my friends. I know there is still much celebrating to be done with some of my other friends so I can't wait for that And sadly enough, the new Joker, Heath Ledger passed away on my birthday. I will do an homage to him and his role as Joker soon enough. In the mean time, here are some girls from my sketchbook, both done in Col-Erase. Cheers!

My Homage to the Lakers

Hey all! I thought it about time I update my blog again, so what better way to update than to celebrate the Lakers winning streak with number 33, Mr. Kareem Abdul Jabbar! Yes, I am from LA and yes I am a Laker fan, born and bred. It saddens me to hear about Bynum's injury especially when he just started to gain momentum. Anyhow, til' here! GO LAKERS!
