Another drawing, this time inspired by Skyrim's snow-world, and my Skyrim character's bow use.  Done with Brushes on the iPad.  The second image is the shading and lighting on the top image, that I thought looked cool on its own.


Sonja Reinhardt

Another DnD character.  I kinda really like drawing out the characters I create for the story.  Her sister was kidnapped by a vampire, so I wanted to make a few Castlevania references hidden on her: hence the whip and name.
I didn't ink this one, but scanned the pencil and colored it.  I worked a bit harder with the light source and where and how it would hit her.  I still have a way to go, but I think it is a bit better than the last one.  Here is to hoping each time it gets better!

 Aight, Here we go.  Here are a LOT of pictures of a major NPC in our D&D game.  I had a lot of fun designing her costume, and edited it a lot.  I used her character to also practice a lot with my "Brushes" program on my iPad.  I uploaded the original drawing on the right and the color on the left, and put them in order of when I drew them, so you can see where (if?) I started learning and applying art techniques.
Let me know what you think!



I've got some art I am piling up, because they are of characters not introduced in my D&D game yet (yes, remember, I am a nerd).  But I can post these pics!  I drew these on the program "Brushes" on my iphone while waiting for Captain America to begin (which was pretty good, bytheway). 


Dungeons and Dragons Redux

Since the last post only included three of the main characters, here are two more.  There is one character left, but he just started, and I haven't really gotten a feel for his character yet.  So when I do, I will make an update with his character as well, I am sure.
The top image is with a simple background.  I originally went with the below image, but all the stain glass effect is a little distracting, so I tried it again without it.  But here are both for your viewing pleasure.


Dungeons and Dragons

So, I drew another pic of some of the characters in our D&D group during class one day, and decided to work a little harder at cleaning up the pic and coloring it. Because sometimes it is cool to see all the steps involved to get to the finished product, here are all the steps:

First is the pencil version, which I worked on for about 2-3 hours total:
Then came the ink, which took about 30 minutes or so.I scanned this image and put it on my iPad, where I used an app called "Brushes" to color it. (A sweet program that lets you color with your finger! It is very intuitive, and allows a lot of freedom. The great Dean Trippe told me about it a while back). Here are a few of the intermediate steps:
Above is the finished flat colors. Then I added some detail, texturing and shading (still with "Brushes")
Then I put it in Photoshop on my computer and added my favorite little filter (but kept it slight this time, so you might not be able to tell right off). Voila, finished product!Lastly, I added a few more filters to try some "different" versions of the pic. I like them as well, so I thought I would put them up. First a more geometric shape version:
Then a "black and white old-timey comic book feel:"
The End!


My D&D group

I have been having way too much fun with photoshop effects on my art as of recent. This is a pic I just did of my new D&D group. We just began, so I haven't gotten a feel for everyone's characters yet. I drew this to try to get a feel. I am DMing so none of these characters are mine.

Here is the black and white image as well. I have been playing around with drawing noses differently. Thoughts?


My Pokemon Team

My pokemons team can't be beat. I know that most people like to say that, and that Pokemons by definition is designed so there can't really be an "unbeatable" team, but I am pretty sure my team is the best. Here is a crazy rendered version that I probably won't like in the morning, (I'm putting it together in bed in the dark right now), as well as the original, pre-rendered and shaded.



So Fluke is this weekend, and I will be there. I will have some copies of When Spiders Fly, my Thor story, and Bullet-Bill Time, if anyone is interested, come on by and pick up a copy or three! It should be a lot of fun.

Anyways, here is a new image:


Lots of art!

I finally got around to scanning a bunch of these pictures. I have been working a bit on shade and using different grays and blues to add color to the pics. What do you think?


random post time!

Some images I have drawn during my history class... Figured I should put something up since it has been a while.
