The House of Terror - Final Illustration

So here finally is the final of one of Jeffrey Condran's short story illustrations!

What was interesting was the evolution of this piece, it started with the rough on the left, which just was not working so I kept changing it arranging elements until it "felt right" and did the final painting to what it is now. I can definitely say my recent practicing has been helping a lot!

Drawing Club - Steam Punk Girl

Drawing club this past week was a fun female Steam Punk theme, great poses, costumes and props! This upcoming week is Steam Punk again but with a male model, can't wait loving the club!

I felt like being crafty and made a bracelet today from some charms, beads and gemstones. Was good fun making something tactile. =)

Happy New Year!!

I hope everyone had wonderful holidays and that this year will be awesome!
Here are some links, sketches and illustrations!

I'm hoping the new year means some great news on my end especially in the area of work! ;o) A new reel is in progress with a bunch of new models, including Ted and the Warthog stead. I'll be making particular ones for modeling and texturing.

So it turns out there are a ton of great drawing events to go to in LA. A lot more than I realized!

The drawing club every thursday, 7-10. Looks like great fun!

There's the Sketch Crawl every 2-3 months, where people get together and draw for a day. The next one is Jan 21
The World Wide Sketch Crawl
See where one is in your city!

The Drink and Draw Club

The Gallery Girls + Sketch Theater
They've been the group that have done the Gnomen Life Drawing nights + many others, though I've only been to the Gnomen's.

A friend of mine shared this video with me, great tips on gesture drawing

Stumbled on his awesome work!

He also made a great character generator, gives a few descriptive to base an idea on then draw away!

Saw this recently some astounding photos of a factory, a missle factory at that! Great for some Sci-fi concepts.

Some creature ref, adorable sloths!!
Too cute! Sloths

Some new sketches: ( I thought I figured out a way to capture sketches without taking them out of my book through taking photos, but alas it gives grey values on some of them so back to scanning it is!)

Concepting objects = potions + pottery

Random Characters

Creatures and Dinos, I love dinosaurs, always have since I was little <3
