I’ve done some clothing design for (Fem) Leinad Obtrebla’s wardrobe/clothing for different settings:
This characters wardrobe was quite fun to draw and design clothing for. It was something a little bit different. Overall i am quite happy with the designs that he has chosen (we went through quite a few in the beginning for the tribal warrior). The steampunk, I am happy to say is re-used from the earlier design I created for the image “The Hallway”. the more modern one is not to my taste but I do like the look of it. She is much more tribal in colours and attire then her male counter part.
I have had my artwork published as the cover of an erotic novel! Anyways I was pretty excited about it, just another step into the world of artwork.
It was a very interesting image to create and I got to use my comic book style of colouring which I rarely have the opportunity to do anymore (at least not much digitally). I also had the opportunity to do some erotic artwork which I also don’t do as much anymore (but would like to). Anyways, I am sure that some of you are wondering what the book/ Image is right?
Just so you know, it doesn’t not contain any nudity and all is explained in teh description with a link to the novel.
For obvious reason I am not going to post the image here but
My Chinese War Horse Daiyu (Black Jade) is a perfect drawing to celebrate the year of the horse!
It is a re-work of this picture, but done with pencil crayons.
I’ve also created 2 videos of myself working on this picture showing the inking of the line work and the actual pencil coloring process.
I find inking is a hard process as you only really get one shot at each line, and you need to do it fairly quickly or it doesn’t look good. Almost every line is drawn with 1 solid stroke and then later with a much smaller pen tip, the line weight and extra shape/detail is added. You also need to make sure you know where its going to end up, its not like you can just erase it….
I really enjoy using pencil crayons. You can get a nice solid color onto the paper and they blend quite well. The overall effect is similar to a copic marker or even paint. However I do find that pencil crayon is not as forgiving as paint at all… once its on the paper it’s staying there.
Some people like to use layer of workable fixatif, however I have never used it.
I may in the future but for now I think the method I have going works well for me.
Overall this drawing is a large improvement upon the original and was great practice fro my pencil crayon work!

This one was a lot of fun.
It’s a portrait of my friend. Then I stuck him in this world based off a description of his name we found on urban dictionary on day at lunch.
I think Matt would make an interesting movie dont you?
The description: A mythical Irishman who was said to have destroyed Superman’s home when he first synthesized Krypton in chemistry. Standing about five feet tall, Matt Gill can fly, shoot lazer beans from his eyes, drink any amount of beer, and turn any frisbee he touches into straight, heat-seeking, side-winding, and lazer-guided missles until they reach their intended targets.
Matt Gill commonly insists that he hasn’t drank, as less than 99 beers off the wall doesn’t even count in his book.
Matt Gill is an Omnihero, and as such can outrun any superhero. He eats gold and pisses rainbows, allowing him to follow the Yellow, Orange, Red, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet River to more gold, in a vicious cycle. Leprechauns worship him as their savior and upholder of Irish traditions.
When Matt Gill threw a frisbee the length of half a football field against the wind, and abruptly appeared to catch it with his left hand while not looking for a touchdown.
Thank you Urban dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Matt%20Gill . you are always so fun to look at!
Throw in some gold, a leprechaun, and a rainbow with Matt and Bam it all comes together!
But that Damn hat, did it ever cause me problems lol.
Matt got this as a Christmas gift, but committed a Christmas violation and opened it before Dec even started. Thankfully he didn’t eat all the chocolate form his Advent calendar. Lol, poor Matt, I get to make fun of him in his special blog >:)
But I think its ok, He is also my favorite Ginger, even if he’s the only one I know 😛
Just testing out my pencils and paper, it was a good learning exp, plus Butterflies are not easy to draw! Damn mirror image XD
Good to work with such a rich colour on paper again 🙂
So basically I wanted a somewhat simple butterfly that had some stunning colors. There are some very interesting ones out there but I chose this one for the vibrant blue, purple and orange. It creates a great contrast and will be perfect for testing out the blending of the color son the paper.
The blue pansy butterfly is a very pretty one 🙂
To do a mirror image on paper, well its really quite a pain. I started by sketching out one side then scribbling reference lines all over it to try and get the correct proportions and angles on both sides.
When I was happy with that I moved onto a new pencil line art fixing up the details of the pattern within the wings. I ended up doing just one side to get a feel for where the colors went and how the pattern should look. (you can see them in the gallery below) In the end it came out a bit different then the ref but I think I like it.
Here was the complete butterfly line work that I came up with.
I was actually pretty happy with this piece, I got most of the shapes worked out.
I continued to do a quick graphite version, as I needed to test out the paper with both colors and graphite. ( I have never used this type of paper before). Actually it was not quick, it was pretty time consuming, what a pain to color a mirrored image even with the line work lol.
It went well but it was quite different then what I am used to. This paper holds the graphite very well and the blending doesn’t work the same for me.
The entire process can be seen below if you are interested. the entire… project, took a few days to complete over a course of I maybe 2 or 3 weeks as I didn’t work on it everyday. more of an on and off project in between, that thing called life.
I really like the Hawk Eagle, I find them very interesting, I just think they are so unique.
I really want to draw/practice drawing animals again, I used to do it a lot but then I strayed from it for several years.
To finish off 2012, as my last post of the year here is my Hawk Eagle.
A traditional sketch, it took me about 3.5 – 4 hours to complete using this picture as a reference:
In the end this was given to someone as a gift. Actually to the person who inspired me to draw it. So for now it remains on his bedroom wall 🙂
To add to this, someone had asked for a quick tutorial on how I do my shading.
I though this would be a great picture to use for it
