The Red Menace

I finished up an old, old, old sketch of my monster character Scully today. I’ve been very busy lately and producing pretty sub-par things in my sketchbook. This quick sketch tells me I should have referenced my own designs more and practiced deer legs. The character is pretty off in terms of the horns and the face, but I’m glad I finished something.

Ascension Dragon wip2

‘Ascension Dragon’ almost done with prismacolor colored pencils…..:

I had to tweak the colors because the scanner made it a washed-out sun-baked version. I’m still fiddling with the background; I should have planned out the background a little better, but I’m proud of the range of purples I have on the dragon. I’ll post the full piece once I’m done.

Recent Adventures

Been working up a huge pile of works in progress over the summer and I need to guilt myself into finishing them:

Started a peacock painting with acrylics sometime last month. I hope to get more comfortable with painting -since I seem to literally more of a pencil pusher.

Still working on my Handbound book project. I’m thinking of fixing the cover with some cool stencil or something. Maybe a cool branchy tree. I’m also gearing up to write down text on page 13:

Nice pair of eyes.

¬†Also working on my very first sculpture with some exceedingly old original scupley clay. If it had an expiration date, it’s probably way past it by now. It’s consistency it a bit chalky and I’m not sure if its supposed to be like that or it’s spent too many hours in a stuffy room. Either way, I’m hoping to get the feet done, smooth out the face and body, and put a pair of wings on him before baking.

And on the side I have my good ol’ standby- traditional art with pencil, paper, and micron pens for inking. It’s a scaly, two-eyed creature. The more I draw scales the easier it gets. Sure it’s a little tedious, but with a bit of patience, the end result is always impressive.

Hopefully I’ll be getting it all done soon.

Olives

Sort of ill colored Panser monster I drew a few months ago. I must have used my crappest pencils ever since it was so hard to color over them. I salvaged the coloring a bit so it would look more green/brown/olive than the atrocity it was before. I wish it was a bit more green to match its decoration/flag/things. Now I know which colored pencils do not color over well….

Micron pens, highlighters, colored pencils and prismacolors.
