Monkeys And Tigers And Polar Bears... Oh My!

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it does it? More fun from the series. The Tiger I tried to use the same style I used earlier, playing off Justin Coffee. I also tried to go for a more retro look with the polar bear, but only half succeeded :/

Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

Another picture for my new series of animals playing instruments. He is playing those finger cymbal things, whatever they are called. This one I tried a technique that I have seen in Kei Acedera's work. Base color put down with Gouache and then used colored pencils to do most of the shading. I am actually very happy with the results on this one and will for sure try this method again.

Rock Out With Your Crock Out!

HAHA That title has been stuck in my head ever since I conceived of this piece. If you don't get the joke, don't ask...

This is one of the pictures in a series that I have been working on of animals playing instruments. Don't ask me where that idea came from, because I don't even know. It is more of a way to get practice with designing characters and experiment with some different coloring techniques in illustrator.

Not even going to pretend...

...that I am good at drawing girls. I have just been seeing so many of them being drawn by other people, I just was doodling it and it turned into more. My hands are still bad, but baby steps right? just so you guys know, drawing humans is kind of a new thing for me sadly enough, because I foolishly avoided drawing them the last few years because I am not good at drawing them.

I feel like doctor Frankenstein...

So I tried an experiment, and it did not go to well. I was attempting a style that I have been seeing around. It is a cool style, and I definitely don't do it justice. If you want to see the effect I was actually going for, check out Justin Coffee. I think I will definitely keep at it because I think it is a nice effect. And no, it is not finished. I decided not to beat a dead horse.

Is he arthritic?

No, I just can't draw hands. Gotta work on that. This is supposed to be the combined character of all the geniuses I have guarded through the years in basketball. Let's just say they were not the smartest...
