Still alive

So I've been working and trying to continue my love of art. I really enjoy that if I go a day without drawing, hell, even if I did draw yesterday, I still feel like I haven't drawn anything in forever.

I really wanted to have something up every weekend. Although times change and the amount of time I have to draw has changed, I still won't stop.

I've tried to really set a deadline for myself and just throw something out.

Now that I've really started to delve into art and am learning more and more each time I put black on white I want to pull back the reigns slightly and turn it back a little. I want to take my time with each piece and unless it is something that should be done quickly like a sketch or concept I want to put as much time as I can into a piece and really put my all into the art.

This is veigar, the tiny master of evil. Another League of Legends champion, I don't play him too much but I really enjoy his 'Black Mage' design. This is my current progress on the work. Trying to utilize each and every piece of information I've learned and been taught and add that to my next piece. Right now, it feels like it leans a little too much to one side. I'll do what I can and adjust that as I go.

This one will have a background, I will make it sharp and really spend time rendering and in post production.

I got this.

No art stuff this weekend ;_________;

My grandma is sick in the hospital and that kinda put me out of the art mood. Maybe I can work hard this week and put something out.

I was able to get 2 new sketchbooks (Buy one get one free!) so I have been doing some work in that, I also picked up a black marker that has a thin tip and a more calligraphy/paintbrush tip which is amazing to do and work with thumbnails and spill my brain on the page.

I also picked up a white paint maker so when I do the silhouettes I can add detail to them over the black.

Art soon.

Rumble Remix

So it seems like every time I start some sort of piece, I end up scrapping it midway through and almost as an apology to myself, work on something else to make up for doing bad work lol.

The last post showed a w.i.p. of my interpretation of the character Rumble from League of Legends. I really liked how it was coming out, however when I sketched it out it was far too loose. There wasn't enough structure at all and it ended up falling flat. ;__;

However, I loved my rendition of rumble too much to give it up and decided to paint him outside of his robot just getting ready for a smoke break.

I'm really happy with how this turned out and can only hope that my skill is improving as I create these pieces.

Below is the timeline of the work. The initial sketch, The painting with the color's over it and lastly the final piece.

Rumble W.I.P

Due to a bunch of stuff I've had to do today, I wasn't able to sit and draw for as long as I would have liked to. I did in fact get something started at least. I do want to finish it sometime this week and hopefully I can post it up next weekend. My own take on one of my favorite characters from the game League of Legends.

This (W.I.P) is my interpretation of the champion 'Rumble'

Goblin Redux

I was actually really disappointed with how that last 'Goblin' guy came out, I feel this is a much better representative to the goblin race.

It feels very much more like im finding my style, or at least heading in the right direction of it.

This guy's name is 3 arm, he plays in a band and is way cooler than either you or I could ever hope to be.

He has groupies of every magical race flock to him at every show. He's the bee's knees.

Below is the work timeline for him. It was my first time working with color and I think it came out pretty swell.

Goblin man man

The inspiration bug has been hiding lately, this week felt incredibly long at work so I've felt pretty tired and drained whenever it came to trying to paint. Saturday's allow me the ability to just forget most things and just paint for a bit. Nothing too special today, just a Goblin who's life has been rather long and he's lost an arm and his lower leg in the process. Now he just wants to live peacefully (as much as a goblin can) tinkering in his workshop and staying away from any kind of adventure.

Is he come long forgotten hero who once fought dragons alongside other mythical champions? Did he slay evil? Why does he use a rope to hold his pants up?

To most of those answers he will just grunt and dismiss the question. About the belt? "Why use leather for a belt when I can use that leather for a bomb instead?"
