    Moai: Thanks! Glad you like the portrait. I actually saw yours when I was going through your sketchbook right after I finished it. Really well done!

    luness: Thank you very much! It's very encouraging to receive positive comments from such an inspirational artist as yourself.

    Legacy Flame: "Indeed" indeed. Thanks for checking in again!

    Jack Nugget: Thanks! I mostly use Blender for any 3D stuff, Photoshop CS3 for most digital painting, and sometimes Alchemy for the linework. It's not really what Alchemy was designed for, but I find it more comfortable for linework than Photoshop when I'm using a mouse. Ultimately, I still prefer pencil whenever I can scan it in.



    Alright! Today I have a few more ultra-simple aliens, another pseudo-retro Mario (because if multiple people considered the first one worth commenting on, it was worth putting some actual effort into a better one), and a really trippy image I created simply because I felt like going nuts in Photoshop for a bit. It felt good. For the little aliens, I don't really have any ideas in mind when I begin. I just create a few little vaguely-organic shapes and build off of them in ways that feel somewhat plausible to me. It's pretty fun and I have about another half-dozen in progress.

    Legacy Flame: Glad you like it!

    Jizu: Thanks! I haven't actually played any Final Fantasy games after FF3 (or 6, depending on where you're from), but I really like some of the designs in the newer games.



    Here's another floating island. It's still a work-in-progress.

    500TH POST!

    Here is a quick and very simplistic landscape. Nothing special, unfortunately, except for the fact that it is the first picture in my sketchbook to be done with a tablet. A small Wacom Graphire, to be precise.

    I plan on doing a bunch of quick portraits to get used to drawing with a tablet and get some quick face-drawing practice in before International Self-Portrait Day (which you should all participate in, by the way). Here are the first two, Che Guevara and Alice Cooper:

    Today I made a Christopher Lee and a Grace Kelly.

    I like how Grace Kelly turned out in the sketch, but it only got worse whenever I tried to finish it. Maybe I'll try again later.

    Charlie Chaplin was today's subject. I sunk a bit more time into this one.

    Another environment. Not too sure whether I like the composition.

    Sixth up: Barack Obama. Not exactly the best likeness yet, but it could be worse.

    HOLY CRAP! FOUR STARS!? Thanks a bunch guys!


    I just finished my entry for Self-Portrait Day 2009, and I'm relatively pleased by the result.

    EDIT: Slightly improved as of November 30, 2009. The earlier version is here.

    Not going to let this thread go an entire month without an update. Here's a less-than-spectacular picture of my current surroundings. Yes, I do most of my drawing while sitting on the living room couch.



    Inspiration isn't a problem, but I've been having a really hard time visually expressing my ideas lately. Hopefully it won't take anywhere close to another month for my next update.

    Thanks Josh!

    Today I just did a couple of quick little pics from life. Computer accessories. I also touched up the SP a few posts above this one.

    Thanks MoKhi!

    More quick little still life today. A pen cap, a clementine, an iPod Touch, and a copper valve. The lighting in this room isn't really that bright and tints everything slightly yellowish. I'll have to try doing this somewhere else later.

    Tried to work a bit faster this time. A pen, a coaster, and a staple remover.

    I haven't stopped drawing from imagination by any stretch, but none of those pictures seem to be getting done. Maybe I'll do a big "unfinished stuff" dump soon.

    I like whats going on here Chriskot. Lots of great portraits, something I need to get myself into. The still life is also looking good. I also really like that simplistic landscape. Must be the tones used.

    Thanks again Legacy!

    Here are some more little things I've been doing from imagination recently. It's a bit cartoonier this time around. Some quick creature I just made, the head of a monster that never got completed, and "MysteriousMarvelousMustacheMen.png".

    A quick toaster, an aimless doodle that I think ended up looking pretty cool, and an expansion on my set of little red pixel tanks.

    Drawing eyes from photos recently. Mostly celebrities and pictures from the news, with a few friends mixed in. Here are the first eleven.

    Once again, I've been working primarily through traditional media and don't have any of that scanned to show off. In fact, I recently reformatted my computer and haven't even gotten around to reinstalling Photoshop yet, so all I have to post right now are a few more quick little pictures done with the lite version of "Colors" for the iPod Touch. They're not that great, but I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of the program.

    The first image was done on a train on New Year's Eve. The lack of features in "Colors" can be mildly frustrating sometimes, but I very much enjoy its portability.
