update. I'm trying to figure out skin rendering.. This shit is hard. I feel its better than my last attempt so thats good... I'll just make up for it with some linework I guess... I hope to soon not need line-work.
Trying to get better. A little different style. I must say its refreshing to work on something different. I'm just trying to keep the inspiration flowing. Today I looked at a much of Adam Hughes and Leyendecker artwork. so I guess some of that is in this somewhere. I'm excited to clean this up and put some color on it. I dont know why I feel the need to post this. Maybe its the feeling that art should be shared, no matter the level of execution.

I recently got a new brush set for photoshop that I really enjoy! This is mainly just playing with some of the painterly brushes and blenders.

I’m trying to learn how to paint using color… this is a really rough color study of the photo thumbnail… From the many workflows that I’ve seen, I like the ones that keep it rough and block in color… Its so hard for me not to get caught up in the details… but anyway….Here’s this. :/

I was privileged with the opportunity to design two characters for Animsquad. I just wrapped up a rendering of Michelle. She's design to give the animator more responsibility when it comes to posing and design. Her dress, earrings, hair, will all need to be thought of as part if the pose as well as emotion. Being aware of the neck, clavicles, shoulders and chest will also provide more challenges when posing. No longer will we hide anatomy under cloth! I can't wait to get her modeled and rigged. I'll also will be doing a video "do's and donts" to help keep Michelle on model and looking consistent. (her deign will alter through modeling and rigging to maximize appeal. The drawing is just a jumping off point)

Clip from the Expert Acting workshop. "pushing the pose"

Posing is probably the most important part of animation. Its what's going to get your acting to shine through. If crafted just right, you'll find you can usually let the pose do the work for you.

Check out the workshops!

Haven't drawn in a while. I had some extra time this evening so I figured I'd try something new. I originally planned on doing something a little more restrained but I ended up pushing things a little far. Hope you like!
