Late 70's sitcom

Been drawing from screenshots from the lat 1970's sitcom SOAP. I just got a Wacom so I did a little coloring. Okay... that's not true. I'm doing a lot of coloring. Plenty. I think I'm addicted to Wacom...

Gallery piece - Sirens

The idea behind this work is the stories surrounding the sirens of myth. These bird-women would seduce sailors with an intoxicating song, then murder the people drawn to them by the song.

This is a test run for the underpainting. I'm trying to establish the lights and darks, and I hope to achieve a good balance of light and dark. I am going to paint this and submit it to a gallery show themed "Femme-Fatale".

Southern Comfort -- A sketch for the ladies

I've been sitting on this sketch for quite awhile. I liked it enough to turn it into a neat finished piece (which I have subsequently misplaced). No tags on this piece because it is from the KMoore Secret Stash of almost tasteless pictures. Hohoho.

Eve's Tiger

Background image for the picture "Applebite" (the previous post with Eve). If I continue with this picture, I will combine this image with the one below using PS or a light table.

Promo Pic for my Art - Thanks JAWCooper!!

JAWCooper created this awesome B&W promo piece, which shows clips of some of my non-color work. It really touched me that she went out of her way again to encourage me to take myself seriously as a professional. I was really impressed by how six of my drawings looked side by side. JAW picked great pieces, many of which are favorites of mine. I like the two on the bottom right especially. Thanx JAW!!

digital painting - Dragoon

As far as I know, dragoons are a fighting class that originated in the final fantasy series of games. Dragoons use spears, are typically fast, and have the command "jump", which allows them to leap high into the air and avoid damage.

I'm going to clean the drawing up in photoshop and color it like the last digital painting.

Digital painting progress

Steady progress on my current digital painting.

I like how the mountains turned out. I don't really like the indigo blue colored miasma behind the character, however it is good for contrast.

Suggestions are welcome.

Digital Painting: Sketch and First Step

I'm learning to digitally paint. I don't have a tablet, and I am instead using a mouse. It feels very clumsy to color like this. To be perfectly honest, I actually don't like to paint all that much, digitally or otherwise, but I feel the need to learn. Comments appreciated.

Specifically, can anyone recommend a good tutorial on painting hair in photoshop?

Waka and the Dragon

This is fan art for the PS2 game Okami, by Clover Studio. In this picture the exotic, blonde Buddhist exorcist Waka is holding the Serpent Crystal - a relic capable of breaking the impregnable seal placed on the mysterious Moon Cave within which the dragon Orochi dwells. Orochi grasps Waka and snarls at him. Colored primarily in Copic markers, with some white and light yellow gaouche used for highlights. Comments and questions appreciated.

Figure Drawing

This is a drawing I did from a model. I think the pose time was about 20-30 minutes.

I took an adult education figure drawing class, so there are more drawings like this one to come. The class was a lot of fun -- real laid back atmosphere and the models were friendly and accommodating.

Sketch concept information

While at a job interview I was asked to sketch the concept "information" on a white board. Later that evening, I drew a much more polished version of the sketch in my sketchbook. Someone pointed out the title of the book was on the back cover instead of the front. I hadn't noticed. Haha, just goes to show how valuable a second opinion can be. Sometimes I make mistakes that are sooo obvious I can't believe I didn't notice them.

Black Water

I drew this years ago. I've been coloring it little by little over that time. I started with a streak-y background in various beige, yellow and grey prismacolor markers. I did most of the shading in col-erase and graphite pencils. This picture doesn't quite look finished... ... How long am I gonna be coloring this thing?! Oi. Comments appreciated.

Musical Yami and his Demon Band

Drew this last night. It's a character design for someone I named Yami. He has demon musicians to accompany his mandolin playing. This was drawn using pencil and the color is done in copic marker. I like the half colored look myself -- I think coloring the whole thing would have garish results. The marker colors I used were Chrome orange, peony, and light grape. Comments always welcome.

Digital Painting One

I am going to ... ...ugh ... digitally paint. I'm really serious. So serious I titled this Digital Painting One. I'm just going to sit down and force myself to figure it out. I'm gonna try to paint a convincing thunder-y desertscape for the background. The background worries me the most.

Soldier Illustration

This is one of the better sketches I've done lately. I'm trying different things with it in photoshop. Ideally, I'd like to color it digitally.
