More Character Studies

Hello, here is an update from what I am doing in Stephen Silver's Character Design Class.  I redrew the  Abelina and Wren (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) character more simplified and colored in.  Here is the full color, the final ink and the roughs.

Abelina Baxter

IF you look at the roughs, the left hand is drawn as a right hand so I had to fix that in the final...

 Here I simplified Abelina's form more keeping minimal details and more exact measurement.  I am going to practice more turnarounds, I have not done one for the other character Wren Blackburn, so perhaps her next.

Wren Blackburn finals and other drawings....

Here is a cowboy drawing I did, I tried to change the style a bit, but the anatomy and overall construction is a bit off. I am going to revise this and later color that version in.

Here are some roughs of other cowboys, a cowgirl concept that I didn't get to do.

Horse concepts

That's it for now, take care!!!

LimoLand Project 1

Hey Everybody, I just joined Talent House so I could get a wider audience for my work and compete in competitions with my art.  This first project is for the company LimoLand and the theme is Love for Valentine's Day.

Please vote for me so I could win! 

Here is my link....

I uploaded these images onto my blog so that people could view the project more clearly.  For some reason the size is very tiny on the website.  

Here is the description of the piece...

For my interpretation of love, I thought about relationships and how two opposites combined creates a strong bond. Through this idea, I thought it would be fun to play around with a variety of foods that follow this concept such as spaghetti and meatballs. I settled for the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly.

From this concept, I personified each side of the sandwich, peanut butter and jelly, as a separate gender to symbolize the dynamic bond that make this snack taste so great!

For my final proposal, I divided a page into three individual poses and a pattern to allow the viewer to see the images by themselves and as a group. Another reason why I separated these images is that I feel each pose is strong enough to be it's own design, in which, allows my illustration to be used in multiple ways to create an awesome clothing design!

I had fun doing this project!I hope everyone enjoys the humor and charm that I dedicated to this design. Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Thanks everyone for your time and support! I will post more work soon and even participate in more contests!!!

Andrew Loomis and Dr. Sketchy's (Also some from Living Gallery)

Here are some copies of Andrew Loomis studies of hands and facial features.  Andrew Loomis has some great books on anatomy and I am going to do more studies of his work soon.

Here i took my knowledge of my Loomis' studies and applied them to caricature. I focused on the facial features.

Here is a figure drawing awhile ago from Dare to Draw.

The next couple of figure drawings are from Dr. Sketchy's in NY.  I just recently started drawing at this venue, but unfortunately, they can not continue any future sessions for multiple reasons. I enjoyed going there and I hope they will continue at another venue for more drawing sessions.

This was my first session drawing a woman with a mermaid tail and a drag queen.

Here are some minute to two minute drawings...

 two minute drawings...

Here are two left handed sketches. The one on the left is from my first session and the one on the right is my 3rd session of Sketchy's.

Here was the first contest I won at Dr. Sketchy's!!! We had to transform the mermaid into half of another creature instead of a fish. I chose to do three and make her a Jackalope.  

I got a squishy soft android plushie! 

This was the second contest I won, I got a free shot of tequila! This contest the figures had to miss a 
body part and be replaced by another appendage.  Can you guess which body parts I replaced and added?

Here are two final ten minute drawings. I spoke to the drag queen after and he really liked these two.

The next session the woman dressed up as Lilith.  For those who do not know who Lilith is, here 
She is the original Eve, in Jewish folklore.  She ate babies and "hung out" with some demons and dragons.

This one is a demonic version of her.

This one was a contest, in which, we gave her a companion.  I chose Adam and made a quick cartoon of it.  It made some laughs and I got a tequila shot for it!

This one is creepy, the woman posing as Lilith was really good and pretended to eat a plastic doll with blood capsules. Awesome!

This was the last session, sigh.  I used the Pentak pen for this and a charcoal pencil.

Doodling Mary, gotta practice more caricaturing.

Here are figures done in the living gallery.  Got some highlighter in there..

Another caricature this time Jenny, and the left is quick drawing of a guy dancing with a skeleton.

That's it for now, I will post an update of my character design this week.  Take care!
