    Dethklaus' den of horror and absurdity.

    Good day! I was introduced to this site by a good friend of mine because my ultimate career goal is to become a conceptual artist. "What better place to start than here?" I figured. I signed up at DeviantArt about half a year ago, but apparently, if you want good, honest critiques, you have to subscribe. This site looks to be far more professional and I feel that I'm going to learn a lot more here.

    Here's some of my most common work, and what I will admit is my comfort zone: creatures and monsters.

    Now for what's out of my comfort zone: Observational work.
    Through my short years in high school, I've found out that I have a fondness for drawing skulls of various animals. I love the visual intricacy of their structures, and the potential for powerful symbolism which they carry.

    My attempt here was to take a darker approach to some classic videogame characters. My goal was to deviate from their original designs but keep their identities easily recognizable. I'm not too confident that I accomplished said goal, but I enjoy these designs nonetheless.


    Oh, and there's also Kermit during his service in 'Nam.

    This has a lot of potential. I love the redesigns of video game characters.

    You should definitely do more studies of form, though. Some of your pictures seem a little flat.

    Thank you. I definitely plan on making more videogame redesigns in the future. I've recently been working on a version of Kirby not too unlike the Pacman seen here.
    Aside from that, here's a few other things I've been working on recently.

    some older stuff, circa 2007/early 2008 (save for the last one with the guns, which was finished earlier this year)

    Thanks! but probably not
    I hail from Greeley. I may move to Fort Collins or Denver at some point in my future, though.

    Also, I've done some more work to the drawing of the futuristic Spartan.

    Here's some more! Can you guess which one was done almost three years ago?

    Some figure drawings and anatomy related things, which I don't draw nearly enough of. That will of course change in the near future.

    thanks for stopping by my sb!, I see you have lots of imaginative drawings which is really cool to see, I've been so focused on practicing the technical side of things I gotta do more of these type of drawings.

    No problem. Hah, I think we could both benefit from trying following each other's path from time to time. I don't do nearly enough studies or figure drawings.

    I sketched a few things last night, so I'll scan and post them later today.


    ...or, you know, when my scanner doesn't suck.
