Hopping on the bandwagon, getting me a sketchbook. First off, some stuff done previously:
Yu-Gi-Oh card re-deisgns - The Spirit of the Firebird Harp and Emissary of the Oasis
The Temptation of Man
sketch & painting
Cecilia the Cecaelia
Lines for Chow #92 - Gangster & His Moll
This one I decided to do entirely on the computer, and have struggled with it on and off for 2 years now
Red Sky (Inspired by the Thrice song)
changed the figure:
Work in Progress, Elements - this one is Fire (duh!)
And Newer, Progress on this week's Chow (#94) - Yin & Yang... I went for Chaos vs. Creation, tried to base the composition on the symbol itself
This week's CHOW is taking forever, fingers crossed that I finish.
C&C always welcome, and thanks for looking!

Hey you got some cool stuff! You have a good sense of colour and your pieces are well rendered and defined. I would have to say that perhaps you could show some more variety in the shapes of your faces. A lot of these girls look like the same girl. It could be what you're going for though. A lot of the guys I draw have a similar face too but it would be cool to see some more pushed and almost caricatured faces. I think it would compliment your style
I saw your work at deviantart.Glad to see you here!!!I really love your work,so here you got some stars from me!!!
Very appealing style. I love the clothing designs. Seen your work at the Chow a while ago I think, couldn't find a sketchbook back then. Glad I accidentally ran into it now. Trying to subscribe but can't find the button. :| Gave you some stars instead.
Good to see some progress shots too, very inspirational. Hope to see more of those especially. I'll be checking.
nice, really nice , line work is awesome
Fuck a Hero, Be Yourself...

Keep up the good work!

Waiting for more Grizz
wow very very nice work!
Bookmarked! Great stuff!
So much talent in such a small space, your work is all really incredible
JessiBean these are great. I love seeing WIPs in different stages of developement as you have with the harp player and creepy lich thing. All of these have just beautiful dynamism. My eye can just go 'round and 'round all day. Your figures are great and each have good personality put into their respective posistions. And the colors! So bright so vivid! Makes me happy! The first is definately my favorite. If i had one crit, it would be to increase your contrast on some of the figures only slightly in a few small areas to more deeply express their volume, but even then i'm more grasping at straws than anything. You've got great style and wonderful flow in all of these. Keep up the great work!
LOTS and LOTS of thanks to everyone for comments, and to Garrett for your crits, definately need to work on my likenesses, and I will certainly push those further in the future...
Some more things to burn the ol' retina...
Finished CHOW for this week: #94 - Yin & Yang
Some people studies I did a while back
Studying chickens for a 3D walk cycle
Thumbnails for a Holiday Calendar piece in a local paper a year or so ago
More things dealing with sin... First, Eve inspired by illuminated pages/manuscripts
Color! Inspired by a Dior haute couture fashion show...
Harry Potter fan art (I couldn't help myself) ... Bellatrix Lestrange the way I saw her from reading the books, and in retaliation for what a fool she was in the last one.
Also, studies for a self-portrait series on the 7 Deadly Sins... Lust and Envy
Some of the finished pieces...
A little more light hearted, this is St. Mallard of the Marshlands, eater of Sins. He is based on a story a Jewish friend of mine told me once about going down to the river in Richmond on the New Year and feeding breadcrumbs to ducks, while thinking of and atoning for sins, and thus being cleansed for the coming year. I asked her if this means she passed her sins on to the duck... this image followed. Based on Catholic and Eastern Orthodox iconogrpahy and illuminated pages.
Last but not least, my CHOW for this week, #95 - The Squirrel Mage
B&W Lighting Study
wow, i love your style. where do you get your ideas?

i wanna be a racecar passenger, the guy who bugs the driver... can i put my feet out the window? can i turn up the radio? you sure like tide. --- mitch hedberg
