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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
