Want to get looser... but technical training is ingrained for "clean". Although as far as technical work is concerned, I'm not that clean. haha

Constant energy surges/storms on the ground, so built sideways instead.

I am ..terrible with upkeep.  D:

Some thumbs for a class that i took.. will post some more finished ones after. These were fun to do, but have to keep them at higher res for better details. Also spent too much time on them, hahaa

more snowwwww

Still a struggle to find a workflow. Sometimes I think I know what to do, then I moogle around unsure of
what I should do next.  :I  With painting snow, in some areas it still feels the same, like I didn't shape it enough. Plus reflected light is shot in this one.

long update

Posting doodles and some in development pieces. I update my tumblr more often than this blog. D:

Summer went pretty great, learnt lots though I always wish I can learn and do more!

I'm at the point where I'm comfortable with drawing, as opposed to before where I feel like everything I put down is a bloody mistake.

Starting a creature a day thing to get better! I update most often at my tumblr! Check it out if you have the time. Also posting cool stuff by other people on it.. you know how tumblr is... a cesspool of awesome.

Warm up to get back into things. :D  

Cheers and work hard everyone!

more studies

Mountain photo study. I've been doing a lot of drawing studies, though not a lot of the classical kind. Still trying to improve on getting the shape and lines down accurately before I go in.

 Sargent's Dame Ehel Drawing is still off.  :I

i found them

I remembered complaining about what a dumbass I was in forgetting to save my other digital life paintings... but as it turns out they've decided to surface for the summer from the depths of my hard drive. :D

The warm up sketches for these are still MIA.. but better than nothing!

Half of my thumbnails usually end up as chicken scratches hahaha

green study

realised his angle was wrong, but tried to make his anatomy work? reference not mine.  I find the colour of green tinged skin higly fascinating...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013


i did these quick studies as part of warming up. The photos/paintings I used below belong to their respective owners, blahblah

hyena wound up looking more like a wolfbeardog thing.  

I like this style of painting a lot; looks more natural and painterly. Plus gods like Eytan Zana rock this and am able to polish it more to become realistic if needed.  !goal

tribal lizard

focusing on line work because my hand and my brain don't connect on the tabletttttttttt plus anatomy problems all the time.

I wonder why lizardmen get pegged for being tropical and tribal all the time. I suppose because being lizards, they can't really be active anywhere else.

attempting to do quick sketches, but alas the quick part seems to be hard to achieve at the moment.

dino fight

A loose paint sketch since all I've been doing lately are clean and more polish-y things.    My childhood with Jurassic Park.  :D
