Hey all, here is a concept that's been on my mind for a while. While my GF was watching the movie 'Tangled' I saw a scene where Rapunzel's hair gets braided by little kids, and I thought to myself 'Self, wouldn't that be pretty awesome if she had a blade at the end of her hair and fought with that?'

And so I drew of some concepts today and came up with this, I like the direction I went with her costume but I think I need to tweak it some more to make it more dynamic, I want more flowing pieces of cloth on her so when she fights its almost like a dance. But at the same time I want it to be practical.

That may come later, but for now, this is what you get. Below is a page of concepts I made before doing the main piece.

Weekend paintings

Today as a break from everything in the day, I decided to paint some fish. it was rather soothing and I'm happy with how its turned out. I need to work on my backgrounds more but that's always a work in progress.

Morning arts

Here is another piece that I have started in Sketchbook pro. I can't believe how much I enjoy the pencil tool in this program, it's such a blast. This time I took the pencil sketch into photoshop to finish it up. Nothing too special, Just something i wanted to try and finish in the morning. Trying to use everything I learn in each new piece I do. Value layer and sketch are below.

Sketchbook/Correl test

Just a test piece to mess around with sketchbook and correl. Not used to correl at all, I want to get the hang of it because I like the idea of it but I feel much more in control in photoshop.

Sketchbook is really fun to use though. Value's and everything are probably pretty off but oh well.

The sketch is below.

Starting off slow.

It's been far too long since I've done a single piece of art. At least a piece that I'm done with and just don't get discouraged with and end up doing nothing. I want to change that and to do so I've decided to start doing a series of quick sketches in the morning before I go to work.

Nothing fancy, nothing too special, just whatever comes to mind. No real worry about rendering, just throwing stuff on the canvas and getting back into the groove of things.

Ive recently bought KOF13. Amazing game, one of the best fighters that has come out this generation. Unforgiving and really requires you to know your shit. I plan to go pretty hard in this game so I decided to sketch out one of my favorite characters. I might end up just drawing my team with these paintings if thats what happens.

So today we have one of the members of team Japan. Mr. Goro Daimon. Hope you enjoy. About 1h in photoshop.
