I've recently closed out my myspace artwork album and I'm in the process of posting that stuff on this artwork blog. Makes sense...
Here's a piece that I did for my junior year at VCU. Obviously it's a redesign of one of our favorite movies for a digital drawing class. The piece is pencils with digital coloring in Photoshop. I was just learning some more Photoshop tricks and this is actually my first digital coloring, pre-Wacom tablet. So I colored this jank with a freaking mouse.
It is what it is...

So, I suppose the obligatory sketch dump is in order. Here goes...
I've been working on my main weakness as per usual: anatomy. One day I will be extra special good at it. This is from Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist by Stephen Rogers Peck. It's a pretty good paperback that I carry with me frequently.
Here's a quick and dirty for my roomie's band The Black Times. Jim wanted an homage to the Ramones but with esoteric imagery a la Freemasonry, alchemy, etc. The triangle read '33' with the Freemason image but has been changed to a billiard rack with the 8, the cue, and the 4 balls for '804.' With time run out in the hourglass, a clutch of lightning and a scythe, the whole thing is roped off with an inverted ouroboros. Black times indeed...
In an effort to improve my skills, I've been going to figure drawing sessions for about 3 weeks now. On Friday I go to the Visual Art Center on Main Street from 6:30-9pm. On Sunday I go to Ghostprint Gallery on Broad Street, just a few blocks from my apartment.
Finished this one today on lunch break. Femur studies from the same anatomy book. Figured I'd mess around with some hatching too.
Actually I missed last weekend's session. Just plain forgot. But the first session yielded this drawing, inked with the Pitt brush pen and watercolored.
I see the glaring errors, and my old figure drawing teacher would probably bodyslam my ass, but I feel alright about it. Just alright. I feel better about the watercolors than the anatomy/figure drawing.
Let it go...
