Rooster Boy!

Well, that’s what I call him because his hair reminds me of a rooster. Just another random character design. This is the inking over the digital sketch…Gonna color it right now because I’m in a coloring mood! Keep an eye out for the final version on DA! I was originally going to turn this image into a digital sketching/inking/coloring tutorial, but the internet is full of those and do I really want to make a tutorial rather than play Wii? No. I don’t think so.

Commission Stuff

Just sharing some recent commission work. Augh, that reminds me, I need to add a commission section to my portfolio page. Ah, that’s what weekends are for.

This one is Hachiro, who belongs to Jeremiah Caudle. While I’ve done many of his characters, Hachiro was by far my favorite. I’m not sure if it’s the glasses or the straight jacket that makes him hot.

This is an in-progress inked image drawn for a friend. It’s in its super early stages. Gotta color this one soon.

Another in-progress image for a client. She wanted Spike Spiegle of Cowboy Bebop in my style. Good choice…he’s an awesome character! I kinda feel like this image mocks his spunk a bit, haha~ He’s too cool to look all cartoony like that…I hope I didn’t ruin his image.

Well, that’s all for today folks. Have a lovely weekend!

OpenCanvas Wonderland!

Yay! The site is working again! I’m so happy! This post was supposed to be added last week, but due to some annoying technical difficulties I had to wait until now to share some more OpenCanvas madness! This session was super fun! I was telling Yun about my art block and she suggested that we OC a bit. What a great idea! Here is the giant image we drew:

(Click the image above to see a larger version.)

Can you guess who drew what? 🙂
This was not planned at all. We literally just drew on the blank canvas for an hour without chatting to each other online. We ended up having the same idea in mind at the end…”Alex in Wonderland.”
And to quote Yun’s giant chicken, “Welcome to Wonderland, Boy!”

Art Block

I’ve been lacking inspiration lately, so it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done any independent work. When you’re constantly drawing for clients, you start to lose your groove, y’know? I love drawing for clients, but I do miss doing some of my full color drawings sometimes. Instead, I just doodle every now and then before I sleep. Here are a few random doodles I’m posting up here.

On a totally separate note, I just wanted to publicize this journal on Deviantart. A young girl lost her life due to a drunk driver running a red light, and there is a fund raiser taking place in her honor. I didn’t know her personally, but she was a great friend online, always commenting on my art work and leaving such nice and supportive messages. Please take a moment to check this out. Thank you.
