Tonal Topic Entries

HornsAlien Bug

Guilty Pet
Most often when I'm starting a painting I tend to lockup on how to treat color. For me it's easier to handle form when working tonally-without color. Until I feel satisfied with rendering forms I may work more in black and white. Hopefully soon I'll make the big jump to working with color straight away. I'm looking for tips. sidebar: I think I might be colorblind.

Monday Morning Sketch Guy

Random warm up doodle which I liked. I used a value strip which worked out pretty nice for free flowing tonal work.

Pilot Creature

Worst Job


I've been toying with a few rendering techniques lately and I'm not really sold on either of them. Perhaps that's just due to very little patience...or lack of skill. Most likely lack of skill. :)

Halloween Series

Topic was Pointy Teeth

Long Nose


In the spirit of Halloween I created this series. Each one was an entry into the daily contests over at I really liked this dark style. I would say this style comes very natural to me. Dark, twisted, scary...yup...that's me.
