What’s up Internet!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some artwork, and there’s no time like the present! I was commissioned by my Kru (Instructor) and Poo-Choi Kru (Assistant Instructor) to do some artwork for them. I’ve been wanting to get into commission work for a while now, so I’m glad I was finally able to start doing so this year. Still have to finalize how much I’m going to charge per piece, but it was fun to do…and I got paid, so Double Win!!

I was randomly doodling some X-ladies (and Black Canary) the other night, and Jubilee ended up being my favorite drawing of the bunch, so I gave her the full treatment (clean up, color, render). This was my first time drawing her, and I’m pretty pleased with how in turned out. I was gonna add her infamous yellow jacket, but I liked how her overall body turned out, and didn’t want to obstruct the view. I might go back and do a version with it just for sh!ts and giggles :)

So True :(

This will not apply to all art professionals (and certainly should not be taken as good advice by some) but it won’t hurt them either. All this message has to do is help decrease the number of “I’ll pay you in publicity” offers from people who are trying to sell ice to [Inuit], so to speak. Maybe it might even result in a few more artists getting paid for their work?

"You don’t pay IN publicity, you pay FOR publicity."

*salutes*

Reblogging this for all my fellow freelancers!
(Unfortunately, we are unable to feed our cats in publicity.)

This happened to me the other day.

TRUTH!…

I’m noticing too many artists are getting caught up in this kind of thing lately. Don’t and STOP doing work for free.

A much more eloquent way of saying “Fuck you, pay me!” :p

People watching/sketching! Something I haven’t done since my second year of college. That’s going to change, lol. Anyways, these are just a collection of the ones I felt turned out best. I alternated a lot between col erase, pencil, and ball point pen.

I actually really enjoyed using the pen in my sketchbook. Something about not being able to erase or having less room for “error” makes me draw with more conviction for lack of a better word. I’m forced to put down fewer strokes (so that my drawing doesn’t become a jumbled mess of random lines). Here’s hoping it’ll help me have more confidence in my lines.

That’s all for now. Gotta get some sleep for Titanfall, lol!

Ok, so two things. 

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!
