1) Samus is awesome (duh) and I had no idea she was so fun to draw until very recently. Don’t be surprised to see more Samus artwork in the future!
2) All this Samus drawing gave me an idea for a little animation clip I want to do, featuring the bounty hunter herself. I’ve got 11 days to have it roughed out before Titanfall occupies my free time, so wish me luck! lol
Oh and I was listening to a crap ton of Metroid music and found this beauty. Man’s got talent!
Anything that can be used as a pencil… and swords!
I was browsing through some old folders and found this forgotten gem I did up a couple of years ago. Never got around to posting it on Tumblr, since my blog didn’t exist back then. No time like the present! So here’s G1 Soundwave in all his transforming glory!
Happy Valentines day Internet!
Daft Punk was a very obvious inspiration for my V-Day drawing this year. After polling a bunch of people I know, thumbnail #10 was the clear winner (with #8 as a close second). I really liked how some of the poses turned out, so I might re-use some one day.
I came up with the idea Wednesday night, then had to clean up and render (which always take me forever because I never know what I want to do with the colors and backdrop) by today.
I was up all night working on it, but my girlfriend really liked it, so hopefully I’ll be up all night getting lucky :D
Hello Tumblr, It’s been a while! Cancun Mexico was good to me…which less then what i can say about Ottawa Ontario when I flew back home last night. I know it’s Canadian Winter and all, but holy sh!t it is cold out there. There is a silver lining to all this cold though. With my will to step outside (unless it’s for work) at an all time low, it’ll juts force me to draw more, so yaaay, more art! Speaking of which, I drew these up on my flght back using my iPhone, the Sketchbook Pro App, and my Thumb! Detail/dexterity was a little hard to achieve, and I don’t have the patience skill of the person that did the Ultra Realistic Morgan Freeman render, I made due with stylistic silhouettes. Hope y’all like!
I felt I was due for a new drawn selfie this year, this was the end result. My inspiration for this was the awesome upcoming series URBANCE. I instantly fell in love with the art style, and I just had to attempt an apply it to my own. Studying the style has actually helped me improve my understanding of clothing folds and what not. I’ve still got ways to go, but it’s always nice to gain a little XP here and there!
I did an all nighter last night!! Spent most of it playing video games, watching Chuck (I love that show) and doodling. One of the better things to come out of it was this Wonder Woman sketch. She’s one of my favorite super heroes, and I’ve been wanting to draw her for a while now. I know a lot of people are split down the middle one weather or not her costume should have pants now, and while I have definitely seen some amazing renditions of her costume that had pants, I personally always liked the one piece. I do, however think they should incorporate her Greek heritage more in her costume. I’ve seen a lot of artist attempt it, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
I was heavily influenced by her New 52 costume. Out of all the costume redesign to come out that, hers is my favorite. Her new colors don’t feel as borrowed from Superman like her original costume did. I also tried to do the whole gladiatorial skirt thing, and extend her underwear to more of a booty shorts type deal when I went over it digitally. I also got rid of the cleavage like they’ve done in the upcoming JLA animated movie. As a man who loves cleavage, I think there’s a time and place for it, and the battlefield probably isn’t on of them, lol. I also decided to give her a spear instead of sword and shield. The lines on the spear itself were put there as means to convey that it’s collapsible, like Robin’s staff. She cant have it on her person and it wouldn’t get in the way too much. Besides, animated fight scenes that incorporate staff fighting are so bad ass!
I’m definitely going to come back to this one and give it a proper rendering, but I’m pleased with how it’s turned out so far. Been a while since I’ve had a decent drawing in my sketch book, so I’m happy that all this digital drawing hasn’t left me too rusty to the Pencil Paper way :p
One of the cool things about being able to draw is that I can use it as way to brainstorm my wardrobe choices before going out. It gives me the ability to see what works and what doesn’t so I don’t walk out the door looking like an idiot…or more so, lol. Every now and then, I’ll lend my skill to my significant other. In this case, my girlfriend was trying to decide which Star Wars themed Blackmilk dress she should wear to my friends NYE party. I tend not to focus too much on the technical stuff when I do these kinds of drawings, but I liked how this one turned out and decided to share.
