I Had Intended to Post More Art This Year... Oh Well

I've been busy creating art to be posted elsewhere and haven't made time to create some art for my personal enjoyment. For sometime now, I've been seriously thinking about creating a graphic novel about my personal experiences from several years ago. It would be great to read a slice of my life story in black and white. Anyhoo, that's the plan. And, I'm stickin' to it. lol. :D

I'm Working on More Sketches

I may post more art created with my DS sometime next week on this blog. Until then here's a sketch I'm working on. There's some things that need tightening up and a few that need to be changed but, all in all it' s a nice painting. I'll post the link to the video after I post it on Youtube.

A Couple of New Sketches

These are a couple of sketches created on my DS Lite. The top one was done in a coffee shop from life. And, the second one is a work in progress inspired by Hajime Sorayama's fembots.

Here's Something I'm Working On At The Moment

This is inspired by Richard Linklater's "A Scanner Darkly." This is a cool film and the DVD extras are pretty cool. I wish there had been more concept art and illustration but, oh well. Here my vector art not necessarily in the same design as Mr. Linklater's but just as cool. Yeah, I know it's another unfinished piece but, it will finished in about a week or two. The cropped image you're seeing will be posted again.

INVASION! Act: Two - Scene: One

Here's two shots from an animation I've been working on recently. The working title pretty much sums up what this animation is all about. I decided to animate the second act first because the first act is mostly SFX whereas the second act is mostly character animation. the software used is Macromedia Flash MX. Yeah, I know I need to upgrade. All my screen ratios were created for Flash MX. If you ever want to create flash animation for digital video you may want to invest in a $30.00 piece of software called Quicktime Pro. That's what I used to save the animation as Quicktime file in .mov format. I'll upload more later. :)


INVASION! - Conccept Art

I've decided to upload a bit of concept art created with Colors! DS. This is not the exact look of the alien octopus but, it is the inspiration for the updated character design I've created. Maybe later I may upload some layout and design from animation to this blog.

The NOT so Speed Painting

This is the painting I'm currently working on. It was influenced by another digital painting I found online by another artist. I hope you like it. Originally, this blog was gonna be a place I could show some sketches and unfinished art. A few months ago I decided to actually only use this for WIPs, finished art and things relating to pop-culture that I'd like to write about. Let me know what you think of my work. I've disabled the comments because someone posted links to websites with viruses. So, don't follow any links I didn't post.
