2 WIPS

I was going to do some homework and then play some Mass Effect – not necessarily in that order – when my Xbox circle went three parts red. I decided to post some WIPs I’m working on and off on, instead.

Focus on the “off” part of that last sentence. Bah, I wish I had the time to work on this one more.

Started this last year, you can see the first WIP I did over here. You’ll notice the quality didn’t improve but the picture got bigger. Anyway, this gentleman is an OC and he’s kind of a backstabbing, neurotic bad guy. What’s missing [aside from the clothes, appropriate proportions, talent and a background] are a peppering of scars to complete his McNasty look. I should probably give him a bloody nose. He tends to get hit a lot – and he deserves it too – but it would knock him down a peg you know. Wipe that stupid smug expression of his ugly face. I mean, look at his stupid loungy pose and his stupid cancer-stick. Don’t you just want to shove him into a wood chipper? I know I do.

On a slightly less insane homicidal aggressive note, here’s a WIP that’s not really a WIP because it has no bearing on anything; the flats aren’t even right. I just liked how symmetrical it looked I guess. To be honest, I’m not really sure why I saved the image at all. But what can you can do?

I’ve made a terrifying, angry beast man surrounded by a beautiful, low opacity bouquet.

I’ve obviously been  preoccupied with Real Life events, and have neglected this site. This fact has made my heart weep like you wouldn’t believe.

The good news is that I haven’t abandoned this project.  In fact, I’ve scanned in the next page and all I have left is the photoshop bit. Unfortunately this part takes a while and the process isn’t made any faster with my latest problem.

This problem would be the bad news.  My laptop has caught a bad case of the death, and is now permanently out of commission. I would say that this would slow me down, but since I haven’t updated in forever, I don’t think it’s really of consequence. Actually, I’m going to take this opportunity to try to draw up the next few pages. Since the hardest part of making a page is the bit that I do by hand, I’m hoping that the lack distraction that comes with a PC will help me get back into the swing of things. I certainly hope so, I’ve missed Sleep Pending.

Another admission: I’m pretty sad to admit that I haven’t had much time to draw this past year.  Last, the amount of sketches I did could be counted on one hand. Of these very few images, I haven’t finished any. That said, my new year’s resolution was to draw moar.

This is obviously still a WIP, but it’s the only thing even vaguely  resembles a real picture that I did in 2009.  Anyway, have a gander. I know it has all of 300 errors and such, but this place needs an update. Also, I just wanted to see how images work in the ‘blog’ section of my site.

The bloke in the picture is called Sébastien, and he’s a very cranky French Canadian Spy. More on him later if I ever finish the picture.

You know, I’m really starting to like this blog thing. Haha, it must be the sleek blog design, nothing else.

In any case, this is another older picture with a background I’m still rather fond of. The Bg is nothing more than a stock pattern and a bad combination of dodge and burn, but in my my humble opinion it reminds me of sunshine on something golden. This of course has absolutely no relevance to the character. But this picture isn’t so bad for my second try at digital coloring eh?

The character by the way is Damian Grey. Because I work solely on a laptop the colors i see are very different than that on a different monitor. If his hair looks really green, its not supposed to. His hair is supposed to be black with just a little green at the tips. (I’m already aware of the crazy bad over amplified anime hair) I need to draw a better picture of this fellow. I’m think his hair will become more brown black (even though I loved the green black color combo) and maybe he should loose the eye patch. Still not totally sure on that one. Oh well. I like having the comparison of old pieces with the newer ones I’m going to post soon.
