Doodles From The Past Week Or So

I drew this one in a dark theater, and while I enjoy the nervous linework it resulted in, I ended up getting myself a little booklight so I don't go blind in a few years.

I like this one a lot, I might take it to finish.


Also, I got myself a Behance site. Check me out and give me some thumbs ups!

An Apple A Day...

Just doodlin' on the school Cintiq.

Also, here is a link to Lobaton, an amazing caricature artist. I really admire his illustrations because it is a prime example of "less is more." I love how simplified YET still very recognizable these faces are.

Here is a preview of the piece I was working on in the previous post. I've actually made several versions of this piece so this particular one may not be the final. Regardless, it's gouache + color pencils, with ink dye textures combined in Photoshop.

I also have a ton of fun personal projects in progress/brainstormed up! More on that soon.

Here is a piece in progress that I am doing for fun. You can see my color comps on the laptop screen. It's gouache on green Canson Mi-Tinte paper, and am adding color pencils now to bump things up.
