Emilio and Emilius

Discovered some things I hadn't uploaded on here, oops. Both of these were gifts for friends, of their original characters, Emilio and Emilius respectively. Funny how that happened.
First one I outlined with sumi ink and then colored in photoshop, second is all photoshop.

Watercolor spam

Okay well, I got this new travel watercolor brush pen majig, and I have to say it has ROCKED MY WORLD. Seriously, who know watercolor was so much fun? It caused me to do a huge amount in a short period of time, here are some (not all, as quantity ≠ quality as we know) :

You might recognize more Castiel and Molotov! With special appearances by Fred, George, and Death.
Anyway, that's all for now, I have some new things but they're not scanned yet. Will get to them soon I promise!

Things I draw on vacation

I went home this past week for Thanksgiving, and instead of doing anything productive with my homework I drew pictures of good looking people.

1. Misha Collins a.k.a. Castiel from Supernatural a.k.a. mr hunky cleft chin man.

2. Iwan Rheon a.k.a. Simon from Misfits, a fairly new British show that I absolutely love

3. COMBO Iwan and Misha! andsomecats!

4. Molotov Cocktease from Venture Bros, one of my favorite characters. Unfortunately when I drew her I didn't have a reference, so I got her costume kind of right, but also kind of wrong. Eh, we can just say she's borrowing Batman's utility belt.

And that's all for now! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Modern Rockwell

One of our assignments was to modernize a classic Norman Rockwell illustration. Naturally modern = zombies. (the original is called "The Peach Crop") Done with Micron pens and watercolor on illustration board.

3D Movies

For class we had to create an illustration using three onomatopoeias, I had 'zap', 'crunch', and 'slurp'.
This is kind of how I felt watching Avatar.

Done with Micron pens and watercolor on Bristol paper (which is, btw, not good for watercolor :< )

Character Practice

Just needed to give some of my characters some love. Theo is on the left, and the middle two are Elander, he crossdresses to preform a singing act. I don't have a name for the last one, (s?)he popped out of nowhere.
Doing a lot of experimenting with pen and ink, liking how it's turning out mostly!

Johnson House

For Illustration class we had to draw based on a random quote we received. If you can't read it on the picture, it says "We had to demolish the Johnson's old house. I brought in the Bulldozers, Shovels and Cranes." So because I'm not much of a mechanics person, I decided (of course) to make it a zombie apocalypse picture.
Also I am not very good at traditional media, but I WILL GET BETTER OKAY

Sardine Kids

In Illustration we were given an article and had to create an image for it, the one I got was about an elementary school in Maryland being WAY TOO CROWDED (like 300 more kids than it was built for or something) and the kids having to have class in trailers and stuff, and not much being done about it. The sardine concept isn't too original but I'm happy with how it turned out!

WoW Character Commissions

Two commissions for the winner of an art auction I had.
The first one is their bloof elf paladin character, Tuonetar, and the second is their troll shaman, Zagh.
Long ears are awesome.

The Cool Kid

I am becoming more and more aware of how much I suck at putting anything remotely resembling effort into backgrounds. How do I fix this? I guess I just don't like them.


Found this guy on someone's OC art request thread, I just couldn't resist drawing him. His name is Thül and I don't know wtf he is but he's awesome.
Those things in his hands are a mask and a cloak?? Iunno

Deer Boy

Wanted to draw something and this happened... I didn't realize until about halfway through that the pose/character is almost the same as in my 'Origin of the Vine' picture.
I like legs and deer boys apparently okay? Geez

Some sketches

These were little presents for some friends of mine, to help me work out some art block.
I might finish them up a little more since I like how they came out.

The Flower Seller

Part 2 of 2 scenes from Lost Souls done for my Illustration final.
This is Christian at his flower-selling stand in Missing Mile, looking gloomy. I think this was my first time drawing an actual background ffffff

Laine's End

Part 1 of 2 scenes from Lost Souls done for my Illustration final.
From left to right: Twig, Zillah, Laine, Nothing, and Molochai. This scene is supposed to be in a van but then it just looked ridiculously huge on the inside, so whatever. Artistic license or something.

Origin of the Vine

Dionysus and Ampelos the satyr. Ampelos was killed while trying to ride a crazed bull, and the mourning Dionysus transformed him into the first vine and made wine from his blood.

We had to do an assignment about mythology for Illustration, so being the nerd I am of course I picked some pretty Greek mythology.

Something Wicked - Spot

Spot illustration for the three Macbeth witches.


Something Wicked

For illustration class we had to draw a scene from a Shakespeare play, so here's my take on the three witches in Macbeth.

I know the lighting is funky, planning on fixing it soon. Dramatic light sources are hard damn.

Assignment for my illustration class. We had to do a 'non-traditional' self portrait.

I always figured dating myself would be the easiest way to go about things.

Story of an Hour

Illustration of my take on "The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin for a class.

Done in ink & a little gouache. I love ink ;-;

BTW this is when I start uploading all my old crap first.
