    Jed: Perhaps, you're right. I started painting, though. I think I'm going to make the daughter the character that's more 'out' there. He's just a workshop bad guy. Nothin' fancy about him. I'm not trying to skirt the issue of him not being super original or creative. No excuse, really. Just in my head, I wanted him to be the boring one and the daughter to be the "whoa" one.

    Here's the painted updated: (Just the basic underpainting)
    I did add some biker tattoos on his arm. And I've got to redo the face.

    i love your painting style! everytime i see one of your pieces i can recognize it immediately. and the way the iron glows is very simple yet effective!
    concerning him being a villian - i dunno. he doesn't look evil at all, rather concentrated. but life would be boring if all bad guys could be easily identified...

    and i look forward to see with what you come up for the daughter!

    I haven't been doing much art for the past month. Been kinda busy with work and other life. To boot myself into gear, I've been attending this little (great) Figure Drawing group in Quincy. It's only going to last 3 sessions, and I kinda wish it lasted longer.

    Here are some of my faves from last night's class.

    So, I've been in a little funk lately. Haven't drawn much. Basically work, tv, eh, more-work. blah. I took a figure drawing class for the past few weeks and, as I was hoping, jumped-started my creativity a bit.

    My friend and I are doing a book of villians. This weeks' topic is to create a hero's doppleganger.

    Here's my take:
    The Hero is a telekinetic human, who's very much in charge of his abilities. I always figured, though, that if telekinesis really existed it would probably leave the person with some sort of mental handicap. Like, the brain just can't handle all that information. In a way, I'm thinking something similar to autism, where all the information is stored, but processing is difficult. I'm also thinking that if someone were to be able to control things telekinetically, then their motor functions would probably be limited.
    Here, my villain has the telekinetic gifts, but he has almost no real control of them. He lashes out in fits of rage over his circumstances, and is quite powerful. This is just a real quick sketch. Just wanted to get some attitude on paper. I'll have to fix the body and hands some, maybe add in some levitating object, like a car, in the background. It also sort of looks like Punk-rock Snair...which I wasn't really aiming for.

    Jesus! I've got to get back to doing this book on a daily basis.

    Here's some recent work: A friend and I are doing some Villain of the Week challenges over at our blog Artgasm (artgasmchallenge.blogspot.com)

    This week's challenge was to create a Bond-like villain who creates machines. I decided to go for a guy who builds submarines and is plotting to alter the underwater sea currents which control the Earths land temperatures.

    that last character looks pretty cool kind of a mix between drax and goldfinger with a touch of anthony hopkins, really good stylization.

    cheerio

    Young Paddy and Kian, thanks guys...

    here's an update. I'm not sold on the green/blue rim lighting just yet. it's coming off too strong and drags my eye downward too much. Perhaps it'll be okay once I add in the green light in the port hole...but right now I'm probably gonna nock it down a notch or two. And the boots need to be reworked, even though they're pretty much in shadow.

    Fantastic sketchbook Jason! You have a really great sense of design and color. And your style really grabs attention I hope work and life slow down a bit more soon and that you can get back to producing more of these great pieces! How did that convention a while back go? Anyway, I hope to meet you sometime at the Boston sketch group!

    Zhonked: Things are slowing down a bit at work. I'm back to drawing at least every other night again. Hope to join in the Boston Sketch group soon.

    Here's the Sub-villain finale. (well, really close to final. I've got to clean a few things up)

    Working on my xmas card / evil santa villain challenge.

    Artgasm Challenge: Take Santa, mix with element power (fire, wind, water, earth)

    Here's my concept.
    Sain Nekvos was a brutal Viking God, who would come to the aid of believers while in the midst of battle. According to legend, he would give blessings and gifts to those he deemed worthy. To enemies he brought forth the cruel winter wind, which he ruled over. He rode atop Ruedov, the mythical giant reindere beast, whose footsteps would leave a coal-like black stain upon the white snow. Believers would give thanks to him (and friends as well) on the Darkest day in the land, the Winter Solstice.

    Over the centuries, his legend changed. Most dramatically came after one particular battle, where he failed to come to the aid of true believers. Soon, tribes far and wide assumed his power had weakened. His myth transformed into children's tales of forgotten times. During Pagan years and eventually after the Romans conquered the land, parents began telling their children of a wise old man, named Saint Nicholas, who would give gifts of gold or food to good children on Dec. 25th.

    And that is the true legend of Santa Claus.

    Here's my sketch, I'll starting working on the drawing this weekend.

    love the model drawings man.
    sub-guy could use some atmospheric perspective, to make him pop from the background, and to add some more mood to the picture.
