I got a new computer. It doesn’t have Photoshop, and don’t go home until next week. So uh, I’ll finish that portrait then. I’ve also been working on my book a lot lately.
I’m starting to feel a bit better, so here’s a work in progress of the Ronan portrait. As you can tell, I’ve really only finished his eyes. I still have a ways to go, but my friend encouraged me to post this to help me stay motivated.
I have a terrible summer cold. I haven’t wanted to paint or do anything all week so the Ronan portrait is like thirty percent done? Maybe? So much bleh. On a good note, I have also decided that this is my sharksona who i will probably customize later but for now he’s just a default Great White.
I’m going to go make soup and play World of Warcraft for the rest of the night.
This is getting painted for practice. Lee Pace’s Ronan gives me a lady-boner. I found a pic of Lee getting his make-up applied for the role and just had to draw this character. It doesn’t help that I’ve now seen Guardians of the Galaxy twice now and have grown attached to his performance.
I’ve been meaning to do some paintings based on screenshots to try and not be bad at digital painting (lighting, color, stroke practice, etc), so if this one goes good I’ll try some based on Ronan caps. I really want to do one based on his expression when Star Lord is distracting him with the dance off. >.>
Ronan needs more fanart.
*goes into fangirl corner*
A goblin shark I drew for Shark Week that I’ll adjust and color later. I think it wants to be a dolphin.
Inked. I’m debating over two different color schemes on this one (a serious one and something with neon), so I may end up doing two different versions.
I’ve been super busy this week (job interview) and doodled a picture of Razul, my incredibly grumpy dragon character, in his human form. His dragon-self is massive, and he’s only able to shrink his body to a certain point. He’s one of my tallest characters and has trouble getting through standard doorways, usually having to duck.
Click on it to get the real size. Tumblr blew it up for whatever reason.
I started this about a year ago and have been fussing around with the composition ever since. There still some adjustments to be made, but this is what I’m going with. Featured characters are Hazat (in blue) and Razul (in red/clay for the rest of his body). Hazat is the God of Memories and runs Seraph, the Vatican’s military with both a private and public face. He is bonded through a pact with the Bane Dragon Elder, Razul.
Title is Cardinal Sin.
I’ve been kind of busy this past week or so, but here’s an inking work in progress.
I was having a bad day when I started this on Monday. I haven’t drawn Belial in a while. I’ve changed his story a bit since last year (wow).
Belial is the God of Corruption, responsible for pretty much anything undead that shambles about in the world. He’s not very nice, and ended up getting into a fight with the Goddess of Wisdom after he tried to eat her. She smashed his face in with a mace (there are only a few weapons that can do this kind of damage to my god characters). Belial tried to heal off the damage, and was only able to do it partially. This is what’s left of the right side of his face. He generally keeps that large hole covered by his mask (which I have yet to settle on a design for).
I didn’t draw it, but there’s a large spider that lives inside of his eye socket. His eye presently resides in Caedus’ chest, giving him that wonderful black blood and horribly overpowered regenerative abilities.
I’m not sure which character is a bigger asshole. :|
I’ve been fussing with my novel world stuff most of this week, and decided it would make sense to combine Sammael and Arbatel into one character. I’m calling her Arbatel now (yes, the old design for the character is her true form) and she’s one of the deities in my novel’s world. For the moment, she’s the Goddess of Cruelty, Kerrigore’s old flame (see what I did there? nuk nuk), and Nathriel’s daughter.
Mistakes abound but it was nice to sketch something after a week of being so busy. That and my carpal tunnel is acting up again.
You're too cool to feel sad JoJo! As far as sketch requests go, uh, hmm... you can draw any one of my characters? Also, let me know when the reprints and new issues for Makeshift Man are available for sale. Must add to my collection.
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Jojo is radical. <3
more headshot commissions ; w ; belong to their owners! thanks again!
I got a very awesome commission from Moogs <3. Caedus my dear (top), you’re looking good.
I was messing around in Manga Studio and decided to finish a doodle I started at work. I’ve been down about art recently — ended up leaving DA to try to focus more on Tumblr, because I feel it’s a place I can post sketches and crap like this and be okay doing it.
So here’s Caedus. In a ponytail. I have no idea where this came from and probably isn’t going to be canon, but man, it makes me giggle. I needed some giggling.
Lol corpse man in a ponytail. He needs some shades…
