Lazy Blog Post

By in men, sketches, women

I’m behind on things, also wasting time on facebook. Still drawing, but not blogging as much as I might. Well, here are some things. First of all, I’m messing around with the “Gaussian Blur” and figuring out what it takes to paint things over a loose pencil drawing in photoshop: It’s from a tacky source […]

Gotta pay more attention to landscapes and backgrounds. Also practicing with the “Pen Tool.”

Pile of Paintings

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

These are simple, but done with different techniques and programs. Up above is purely digital, drawn and painted in Photoshop. The guy below was drawn in Adobe Illustrator according to a pencil sketch, then coloured in Photoshop. I’m happy with the ink lines I’m able to create, and they’re fast to do, too. This strange […]

Man and Monster,coloured

By in Uncategorized

I’m still adventuring in colouring sketches, and hence, cartoons. Difficult to figure out what’s too much, because I like the original drawing, done in roller pen in the sketchbook, just fine. But these flat colours with subtle gradations are all right. I also have to work on my colour sense, to let things blend into […]

Colour Couple

By in men, women

More cartoon colouring. I’ve noted that few people are visiting the blog on Sunday, so I can post today in relative obscurity.

All-digital Airplane

By in paintings

This took me a bit of time, but taught me a lot about digital painting, and making clean lines in illustrator and photoshop. It started life as one of my silly little sketches, so it’s not a real kind of airplane. I’m experimenting with different lines to see which ones are the prettiest and fastest […]

Woman in a Bikini

By in sketches, women

Yes, she’s in a bikini, but she’s got a personality, so I don’t think she’s just being an object. This is another drawing, in real ink this time, which I coloured with the computer.

More Digital Painting

By in women

I’m pretty happy with this beauty, and am slowly figuring out brushes in photoshop. Hard to set the ones I like. This took a lot of time, but then again so did the acrylic pictures I used to paint on matte board when I was in High school. Still have one of those.

Digital Paintings

By in sketches

Thanks to this site here, I’ve taken baby steps in digital painting. Not easy for me! Had to learn about brushes, mixing colours, transparency, layers, and flow. I recommend the lessons here to give you a hint of how to proceed. I still haven’t been able to cobble together a decent palette, but will work […]

By in sketches, watercolour

This feels slightly less demented than most of my offerings, but I’m probably kidding myself. All the same, I feel more control of my medium and the effects it creates, and also my drawing. Hooray!

Comic Colour and Nasty Horsemen

By in horses, men, sketches

I’ve finally learned a comic colouring technique that’s relatively fast, and that I’m happy with. Check this series of youtube videos from the Overground Comic Company, if you want to find out more. Meanwhile, I’ve been drawing a stack of things. Here are a couple of angry guys on horses a la Frank Frazetta for […]

Arrr…. Ulllg….

By in men, sketches, watercolour

This guy is vaguely based on John Cusack from the movie “Say Anything,” but I was too lazy to draw a portrait. So he becomes “random guy,” because it’s too cold to go out on the balcony and draw people.

Hard and Soft Edges

By in sketches, watercolour, women

I dislike ink outlines, but am working on hard and soft edges in drawings. Leaving the middles alone in this case, or giving them a gentle wash.
