Nohea – Concept 2

A second concept I did of the character Nohea, focusing mostly on how the disfigured portion of her body might look. I’m not quite sure that I want to have to appear this grotesque yet, and in general the age of the girl portrayed here is younger and “cuter” than I would like. Also, painting […]

Nohea – Concept Sketch

It’s been sooooo long since I drew something on paper, I’m completely out of practice and have almost completely forgotten how to do line art. I’m so used to taking a painterly approach to working that I may as well have done this with my feet, haha. However, I did want to come up with […]

Female Profile

I rather like painting profiles, so I figured that’s what I would do today. I had also intended to have more visible brushstrokes, since I can be a bit blend-crazy… but I ending up smoothing a lot of them out anyway. Oops, hehe.

Video Test – Eye

I decided to try out that thing where people record their painting steps in Photoshop and upload the video. Unfortunately I’ve found that I’m very camera shy and while being recorded I paint more carelessly than I normally would. I imagine that with some practice I’d get used to it, but I’ve never liked people […]

Classic Pose

I felt like doing something with fabric and I found a great little stock reference from DA. 1.5-2 hours on this one. I might go back and polish it later, but I do think there is a certain charm that comes with looser painted images like this.

Zombie Cow

Another one of those things where I wasn’t quite sure what I had in mind to do when I started, and this is what came of it. I’m playing too much Left 4 Dead maybe. 😉 About an hour.

Fishy Bob

I actually made the background for this picture to show a friend of mine some Photoshop brushes I was using. I ended up liking it enough that I wanted to put a simple element over the top. A fish was the first thing that came to mind. I think I spent about an hour on […]

Nightmare Eyes

I don’t really know what’s going on with this lady. She’s got creepy eyes. She has no body. She’s wrapped in fabric. Oh and she’s levitating it seems! All elements that make for a fun time if you ask me. Just under an hour went into painting her.

Texture Study

I was in the mood to do a texture study, so I did this picture based off of a photo of an elephant. Roughly 30 minutes.

Crystalsong Variation

I felt like doing another image based on Crystalsong, but the idea was to do it as though it were autumn and the trees looked a little different than usual. At first I made it without the leaves, which was about 45 minutes. After I uploaded this I got the itch to tinker around with […]
