You’ve Been Expected

… And end with this guy here.   And by “end” I mean I have a Sketch of the Day to add in just a minute, too.  Hope I’m making up for my absence the last couple of weeks!

Hope you’ve got a plan…

So yesterday?  Two new finished works.  Awesome, right?  RIGHT?  Well, it’s about to get better!  See, there were two others I did that I have yet to upload.  We’ll start with this fellah here:

Rean

This is what happens when boredom and Let’s Plays come together… I start to draw.  Guess I need to get bored and watch MineCraft videos more often, now don’t I?  Anyway, I call this character Rean (“Re-ann”).  She’s a little off-balance… maybe she should take off that PVC piping to lighten her load.

Sketch of the Day: Golem, As Seen in the Video

You’ve probably already seen the video, but this was a quick sketch I did for a YouTube commentary.  Not an insane lot to say about it, that aside.

YouTube Drawing Video: The Spinoff Sequel

Well after being forced to settle on a speed drawing, I decided I wanted to do a video and keep the full commentary, regardless of how bad it may turn out, because I’ll never learn otherwise. So, here you guys go!

Pen Drawing Self-Challenge: Priestess

Just to pad things out a bit, here’s one result of a challenge I made to myself to practice some sketches completely in pen.  Didn’t turn out terribly.  I kinda like the headwear, and if I hadn’t gotten lazy with the torso this probably woulda turned out a lot better.

Sketch of the (yester)Day: Marrassameut

I kinda fluctuate between two styles: a more realistic, quasi-American style, and a cutesy, Ben Caldwell/anime-esque cartoon style.  I like to consider the latter my “primary” style, switching over to the more serious one mostly to hit and push the limits of my drawing capacity.  That’s not to say I’ve “perfected” my main art style, mind you – you should see the rest of this page – but when I get it, I like what I have.

Anyway, this character I call Marrassameut, or “Mara” for short.  I was going for a harlequinn-type design, but it seems to have come out more as a geisha/Princess Amadala kinda character.  Wasn’t even trying for the yin/yang shoulder poofs.  I still like the design, but I probably could have invested more thought into the legwear.  Boots, it seems, are not quite my specialty.

Sketch… not really of the day.

Alright, so I’m kinda cheating here.  Yesterday’s sketch kinda bombed, so I’m using one I did a while back.  But hey, I never showed this one online, so it still counts, right?  Anyway, this is Talla, a dragon warrior-type character from a comic I’m doodling that might or might not actually be made.  You know how I am.  I should really work on my posing and camera work, these things can get kinda boring…

Sketch of the Day: Tenkyo and Viper

Well… sketch of today and yesterday, anyway. This was drawn on scrap paper I got from work, and I really didn’t expect the stuff from the other side to show through. Oh well.

I’m alright with this picture, but there’s really nothing special about it. It’s an Americanized (Getting into the whole American comic art style lately, I’ve been having fun with it.) Tenkyo from Punk-Pink! and Viper, a character I hadn’t gotten around to introducing. I think Viper’s torso is a bit too long here.

A Handy Practice Session

Yesterday I decided to draw a nondescript hand drawing a cool-looking knife.  The knife would be like something out of Warhammer 40K, emblazoned with tiny skulls and biomechanical tubes and crap and being two sizes too big.

The knife… didn’t really happen, but that’s okay.  My main focus was on the hand that was holding it.  Let’s face it, I’m terrible with hands.  It doesn’t make me feel bad saying it, even the guys getting paid to do this stuff have trouble with it.  If you don’t believe me, just check out Google.  Anyway, yesterday I actually had a hand turn out decent.  It wasn’t quite in the pose I was going for, but a learning experience is a learning experience.  After some time with it I started going with visual reference (Which is to say, I ogled my hand as onlookers backed away slowly).

Here’s the not-so-final product, with another hand I didn’t quite have time to finish.
