Mmmm, watery...

So I've decided to get back into actual paints. My favourite medium has always been water colours for both look and approach. I always find that it's quite the challenge to make it do what you want it to but well worth it if you know how.

I'm ok with what came out considering how long it's been since I touched it but there's still a long road ahead.

Hope you likes.

Cheers.

Unipegafuzzytailephant the 3rd...

A group of local cubs came into our studio the other day. Being one of the only employees left in the building I was quickly surrounded by tiny people wondering how we did things.

When it came time to show them that we can draw on tablets they started shouting ( some right next to my ears ) what they wanted to see.

One thing led to another and this guy was born... in a much more sketchy design.

Then I made him better. It was fun to see/hear the weirdo ideas they had. Such imagination yet still too young to join the industry... oh well.

Hope you like.

Wipeout the commission...


Here's the second commission I've been working on for a friend. It was quite the challenge cause I'm not used to rendering BGs like this but I think I managed :D

It was definitely fun to challenge myself like that though. Everybody should be doing that if you ask me.

Cheers.

Kitty Pryde the second...


This is the second version of the Kitty Pryde challenge my friends and I ( well, mostly them... I kinda jumped on the bandwagon later on :) gave ourselves. The first was to draw Kitty Pryde in our own style, coming out of a wall, and her dragon friend had to be in there somewhere.

This was my first one http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_99qdtnIJOe8/TMyfMQF5fpI/AAAAAAAAAL4/IYm5s4doqng/s1600/Kitty+Pryde_01.jpg

The second version was of the same exact layout but in a style of the other's choice that, in their mind, would be opposite to our's. So they decided I should do a Golden Age/Silver Age comic style.

So here she is.

I based her a lot on the old Phantom Lady comics and then a mix of dinosaurs and monsters from the aera.

Hope you likes.

PS - If anybody has a good way of getting the pixelation to look good on the small scale, please let me know. I had a hard time getting a version small enough to upload but big enough to keep the details. Thanks in advance.

Supa Gurl...



This is Super Girl... duh. This is just another something to force myself to learn new techniques and skills so all you talented younglings ( that one's for you Ray ) don't have as easy a time stealing my job :P

UPDATED:

So the more I looked at the first SuperGirl, the more I hated her. And then I saw what my buddy Ray ( http://rocom.deviantart.com/ ) has been doing with female characters and really had to punch it up a bit... ok, a lot. So here's mark 2. Background to come later. And tweaks to come later too.

All's fair in love and war.


If there are fans of Kevin Smith out there who haven't listened to his SmodCast, do it. DO IT!!! It's chok full of great stories.
DO IT!!!

Merry Xmas little boy I don't know.


This one's for a little buddy of a buddy of Meeka's and me. Hope you likes.

Kitty Pryde


So some friends of mine ( [link] [link] and a lady who should really have a page on DA... ) challenge themselves to drawing tests with twists and things. I joined in on this month's one ( Kitty Pryde ) a little late but hey, wha'dya gonna do, right?This one was to setup Kitty Pryde going through a wall and throw in her little dragon friend. I've never really looked into her so this was fun. The next step is to do another one but in a totally different style. One that isn't your's. Should be fun.If anybody has a trick on how to do hair, I would looooove to hear it. I'm not at all confident with my approach ( and final product ). I was always one to draw bald heads or hats.Cheers.

I've been getting an itch to learn how to draw women. Here are some sketches taken almost directly, but not traced off of, the following talents.

Spaccceeeee...


I've never tried this before but with the Deviant Art/Eve contest's cool prizes I thought I should force myself to try. I'm actually happy with what came of it.
And now the hard part's done, figuring out what the hell it was going to look like. Now, only the other hard part of figuring out the views is left....... eep!
This design was highly based on a Russian plane. Check it out, it's pretty insane looking http://englishrussia.com/index.php/2010/09/06/a-weird-soviet-plane-vva-14/.

Hello strangers...




So I've been away for a while. I've finally been able to do something creative too, surprise surprise.




A couple of friends of mine and I are going to nerd out with D&D. Here's my character, Omicron Persiae 8, a Minotaur Oultaw.




The other one is of Keving Smith learning to fight through the teachings of Scott Mosier. Listen to SmodCast and you'll understand :P




Too tired to write anything else.




Cheerios.

mPod

Hello all and allets,

Meeka wanted me to make her a little drawing of her on her scooter for her iPod ( apparently she found a site that lets you design your own iPod skin ). I thought I'd add a bunch of her creations running after her.

Hope you likes,

Orange Lantern Meeka


Hellooooo. My wife, Meeka, wanted to be an Orange Lantern. She has been making and has been obsessed with sockmonkeys for ages now so I thought it would be fitting to give her a little buddy.

Cheers,

More colour please.

Heeeellooooooo.

In my ongoing quest to better myself ( by stealing what I can of other artists )( ssshhhh ), I've decided to learn how to paint in a more fully rendered way as opposed to the flat, cartoony way.

There are sooo many wicked painters on Deviant Art.

Although I ended up doing mostly my own thing, I was really inspired by this drawing http://gueuzav.deviantart.com/art/Flore-125934783. Take the time and check the other pieces out.

Cheers for now,
Ren
