Painting Commission: Punisher!

So rather than doing a daily sketch I've been working on this for the past 4-5 days. It's been a struggle to say the least. By far the most detailed painting I've ever done hands down. I "cheated" and created the pile of bullets in 3D and painted them in. For the gun curious yes that's an AA12...and a Echo-1 minigun and that crazy pistol shotgun from Killzone.

Painting Collaboration: Clik, Clak

Syd and I collaborated again this week. This one was a serious fight for me. I was looking to try out different rendering and color techniques. They all failed. :( But I was able to make something work towards the very, very end. I'm trying to incorporate more color and find a process that works for me. This one was tonal first with color after.

Xmen Daily Sketch: Cable

Super quick one. A lot of stuff going on on Thursday. I like the perspective on this one. I started messing around with tonal rendering again on this one. Makes me realize I still need LOTS of work.

Wednesday X-Men Sketch: Storm and friends!

So on my FB page one of my old classmates let me know that their kids have been loving the sketches. I felt honored and mentioned that I would love to have them pick the next character. They picked spiderman but she mentioned I'm doing Xmen so they picked storm. I say, why not do both right? Throw in the fact it was Star Wars Day and I had to throw Maul in too. This one was a lot of work. I must have redrawn everyone at least 3 times to get the right flow.

Tuesday Xmen: Cyclops

My co-worker Rachel and I decided today I will do Cyclops. Oddly enough the first idea that came to mind is that Mr.Scott Summers secretly is a huge MJ fan. So here he is practicing his favorite move.

Daily X-Villian: Magneto!

So I'm not really done with doing xmen yet but a client of mine really frustrated me yesterday. All that was coming out while sketching were angry eyes so I thought that would fit Magneto nicely.

Painting collaboration: Churro!

My friend Syd and I had a chance to collaborate on a contest entry for sketchoholic last week. The topic was Big Ears. I was going for a more realistic approach and perhaps the contrast suffered some. It didn't place well so I'm looking for critiques. :) Regardless though I had a blast rendering Syd's super cute idea.

Sunday Xmen: Beast!

Looks like sunday is looking to be traditional pencil drawing day. I really hated the line art on this one but liked it a little more once I added some tonal rendering.

Daily Xmen Sketch: Graduation Wolverine!

So my cousin Curtis graduated this weekend and I wasn't able to make it out. So I asked him which xmen he would like as a sketch. He picked wolverine. I decided to take it a little serious and not so silly this time around.
