Rise of the Guardians: Finally… Lines are complete! This’ll be the last WIP I post of this illustration… soon, it will be done. I’ll be featuring this print at Anime Next 2013! :D
Work in Progress: work work work… t-shirt design illustration. Having more fun with it than I thought! I think I’ll finish it tomorrow night…
Dark Souls: Sexy Gargoyle does a turn for you. /snorts! Uhh.. what I really meant to say is that Karniz’s Many Deaths in Dark Souls got an update today! Three new pages! As usual… subscribe to my mailing list to get an exclusive art each update!
Also, this drawing is actually much more than just this. I’ll eventually get around to coloring it in it’s completion… Why don’cha take a gander at the full version of it through this Livestream recording I did?
And here’s a reminder of my Online Print Store! Why? Cuz’ I’m running out of my Dark Souls’ prints… the 4 Knights of Gwyn will get replenished [alas, not until convention season] but my Artorias and Solaire prints will NOT be re-printed! So grab them before they’re gone!
My cover for the current challenge~
Young Adult Fantasy novel about a clan of Valkyrie whom live in an old kingdom in the sky. One of the younger sisters, Magnhildr fell in love with a lowly creature named Bruin - which his race are what they keep as their servants. Upon finding this out, the leader of the Valkyrie cast him out onto Earth, to fend for himself. Magnhildr goes after him, not knowing that she cannot exist as a Valkyrie when they touch down on Earth…
Wanted to do something fantasy-ish as a Romance novel, but on a lighter note. That, and I like drawing guys with horns. ♥
Dis is mine. I’ll color it for myself one day! But for now… we’ll leave that for next week’s challenge… mwahahhahaha…
QUESTION #1: How do you usually come up with poses? I’ve seen you just jump in a draw straight away without a skeleton. Was that how you usually do it?
Question #2: your art has a lot of movement and flow. how do you plan it out and make it look so cool?
Question #3: Yer a nutsac! … … … [Ok, that’s me… but anywho…]
Felt it’d be easiest to answer… IN VIDEO! Click to goto my Livestream video! Where I recorded a basic process of how I go through a more serious illustration~
And to answer #1 more thoroughly - usually if it’s a warm up drawing, or a doodle I don’t do skeletons… If I want to make the art count, I’ll do one like I did in the video.
Thanks for asking! It makes me happy to know people are interested in the process of how I do my
Dragon Force: Work in progress of a lil’ something for Game-Art HQ. Gonna work on the colors tomorrow - may Livestream it if I’m feeling up to it. But yeah, I LOVED Dragon Force… It influenced a lot of my artstyle in the early days too… [God I miss that game!]
Dark Souls: Commission I did earlier this year of Tolan - dual-wielder of Smough’s Hammers, Havel’s helm, Warrior’s top, and Crimson legs. It’s quite a beautiful combination, actually.
Influenza: More tinkering around in Manga Studio Ex. Not loving it. Doing lineart is easy… tones? Good lordy. It really shouldn’t be that complicated. But I shall keep working at it!
For those that remember my little questionnaire that I had awhile back, I tallied up the votes… aaaand Influenza’s the winner! The Ward was verrrrrry close. [It only lost by two votes!] But in the coming weeks I will be reworking the story line and posting character sketches to my Tumblr~
Who knows… maybe 2013 will be the year I have another original comic online!
[oh my love, 3 Pillars, it’s only been two years… /comfort]
Thank you all who voted & sent me suggestions! All will be taken to heart!
… now if you don’t mind me… I need to do an illustration in Sai. Maybe I’ll stream it..?
Borderlands 2: Work in progress for a poster I’ll be selling @ New York Comic Con… I really just want to play this game, so much… maybe after I finish the flat colors I’ll reward myself with endless rampant mayhem… mwahahhahaaa…
