So my friend NTL told me to draw Hellboy at around 10:30 this morning. So I did. I finished this at about 1:39pm. I want to color it with copics mainly to help clean up the messiness of it, but inks should be able to stand on their own. To that end I have a lot of work to do, but I'm surprised I did this in 3 hours. I spose that would explain why is so sloppy tho.... Oh well on to the next.

15 Minutes!!!

I probably shouldn't feel as elated as I suddenly do, but I'm pretty proud of this 15 minute drawing, I did a pencil first and then inked over it with a brush. I'm gonna do a couple of these a day I think. whenever I'm workin on a project and it starts to get stale, I'll break it up with a quick ink sketch as fast as I can. Side note, I'm noticing that every artist around me is going super hard in their work so I've gotta jump on that train. I'm so inspired.

Landscape By River

over lunch today, I asked my dad to give me a topic to draw, he said landscape by river, so after we ate, I drew this in 20 mins with a faber castel brush pen.  it's meh at best but for a quick sketch straight to ink, I'm decently satisfied

Figure Skating

I'm planning to do a skateboarding piece as well as a few skateboard designs, so I've been practicing from youtube video stills.

Face Front

I started drawing this dude at a memorial service for my parent's deceased college classmates ( I started BEFORE the service started). Before I could finish, two other people sat between me and this guy I was drawing and the service had started, so I left it as is and I like it better that way. Kinda want to color it tho.

35 Minute Man

I was at an outdoor concert under the shade of tree and drew the guy sitting next to me, I figured he'd be there long enough to get a good drawing in. A lot can happen in 35 minutes haha

The Ballad Of the Apple - Day 1

I'm painting this apple over the course of seven days, I'm gonna do stuff to each day to make the paintings more interesting for me. This first one is Gouache. I'm running low on goauche, so I'll mix media more and more drastically as the series continues. It's all about the Axperimental Ebstractions haha.

Life Still

Sat in the back of sunday school  and drew the scene. Axperimenting with the color. This was the first sunday after I got back from school. I'm getting everything up to date since I've been terrible at uploading things lately

Handy Elephant

I drew this sketch in the back of my friend's car earlier in the summer, I liked it so much that I planned to do a finished piece of it.

Then, last week there was an animal planet show about elephants so I took the opportunity to do some blind contours and increase my elephant drawing skills.

And I just now finished coloring the piece. It of course came out less cool than I'd hoped, but I'm positive my skills will increase as time goes on.

Axperimental Ebstractions 1

 ^This is a pen and sharpie exercise. The red head took me the most amount of time and sucks worst which I found surprising. the middle head underneath it started as a blind contour which I abstracted into the cartoony character you see.
 ^These people were drawn at a Costco's while my parents shopped around in pen, and colored later with colored pencil.
 I drew aspects from figures that interested me. Trying something different than what I normally do.
This is a creature I drew today when a friend of mine described his Ouija board experience to me. Kinda represents the vibe his story gave me

Axperimental Ebstractions is kinda my Daily sketch thing, I want to mess with compositions and forms and create things and colors that I haven't thought of doing yet.

Throwbacks: Otomo 2 the Future

The assignment for this page (from spring of 2011) was to redo a scene from a movie in the style of another artist. I got Katsuhiro Otomo (one of my biggest artistic inspirations) and Back To The Future. I'll have more and better page work coming as the summer goes on, now that my time can be fully devoted to my personal projects, I'm going to let loose with a bunch of new works and experimental things. Should be fun haha.

Also, I don't want to make a separate post for this, so I'm saying here that I have a lot of older work on my DeviantArt account PKDarthN8R if you were interested in seeing how much I sucked a few years ago.

Throwbacks: Collage

This is a painting I did back in 2009 in acrylic. The assignment was to take ripped up pieces of magazines, make a composition out of them and paint it. One of my better paintings to this day, but that will soon change
This is my last oil painting of Spring quarter, I couldn't quite get into to this one as much as I'd hoped, but it too has some redeeming qualities. More to come for sure.
This is my 3rd oil painting, couldn't spend as much time on it as I'd hoped, but there are some redeeming qualities to it.
