Quick update, painted this for about 15 minutes before getting in bed last night. This little guy sits on my desk in front of my monitor, was a bit tough getting his colors in the light; I think he's a bit too blue/greenish in spots but I like em.

Speed Paintings

Speed is a relative term, of course; between 30 min - 1 hour I'd say. Both from reference, the environment was tough due to the large amount of detail and the ellipse(s) on the second was pretty tough to freehand as well. Good practice either way... I'm learning, slowly but surely!

Modelsheet Studies

Been trying to do at least daily studies of this character as a suggestion off of Rad's How-to blog (been a big fan of his for a while, learned a bunch from his blog as well). He suggested drawing a simpler character like this for a month to really get used to how the construction works before moving onto more complicated designs. Learning a lot from the studies, I think it's helping my personal drawings gain a bit more solidity (little by little at least).

Sorry for the scan quality, my sketchbook is 9" x 12" and my scanner is 8" x 12", so it doesn't quite scan completely clean.

Back again with a PS painting of a wine bottle from reference. Realized a few steps in that the drawing was off (measured one way and not another) , but I wanted to practice my rendering so I just kept at it. Fun practice, about 1 - 1.5 hours.


Long time no post once again; gotta get into a groove with this thing! I have been drawing more as of late but primarily studies that I haven't scanned in. I'll start posting what I do going forward from here, but for now this is just a post of some work that I never posted.


Character doodles, first in PS then in Flash.

Grayscale speed paintings from reference, all between 15 - 60 minutes

A study of an apple

And a pixel self portrait, as a sort of partner piece to the one of Katelyn in my previous post.

I'll be back with more soon!
