Baboon Queen Concept

Testing out some fancy brushes from scully7491 and they are great for backgrounds as well as some of the big brush strokes. This is something that surfaced as I was sketching. Baboon Queen. Just one of my concept characters.

Hoping for that clean look. I was closer this time, less muddy colors this time.

Light the Dark

Lighting up a dungeon. This was originally in monochromatic colors, just testing out overlays.Something really convenient and I think essential in digital painting, allows for blending in better with values under it.

Green Giant - Concept

Strong. Huge creatures of the Forest. Guards ancient relics.

Moving to the Digital Age

Wacom tablets have finally arrived on my side of the world. Slowly making the transition to digital media, but this does not diminish my love for traditional media, it just makes it easier to see results faster and I've got unlimited paints and brushes :D

Used Gimp 2.6 + Wacom Bamboo Pen.

Snowy Morning

Huhm. So it's been snowing hard since the weekend and it was a catastrophe yesterday with a lot of people stranded because of the snow. This morning was better and I decided to finish a page that I left before on one of my moleskine sketchbooks.

Sorry for the bad picture, I just used my iPod touch's camera for this one and the bleak morning light does not help at all but I was really happy how my angel turned out.

More figure studies and catching up

I had clearly underestimated how much information and examples we can find just about everywhere, magazines, comics, manga and the like. I've finally got back the confidence I had lost over the years.

Still need work on a lot of angles that I've always ran away from when I was a kid because I was so lazy to study them. As a kid of 12 years, it was also difficult to make people in class to understand that drawing nude people doesn't mean sex all the time! That was funny though, to see the shocked reactions of classmates.

Looks like everything's coming back, full circle.

This is a page I really liked with all the angles from reference materials

Skeleton Society (page 5)

In page 5, our pipe-smoking character bolts out of the inn and conflict is avoided (for this time). The group discusses their mixed feelings about meeting her in the first place.

I'm definitely sticking to monocolor for this one. It just adds more of that dark atmosphere.

Skeleton Society (Page 4)

I'd like to thank the folks at for the couple of suggestions. So far, the best is to keep doing it on wc paper and decide later if I want to color it or not. I tried a quick splash of watercolours to some of my storyboards and I also liked how it turned out, but then again, the feel of mono black pen finish also suits to my liking. I like both!

Anyway, here's page 4! Eventually I will have to make a full scan of all pages when I complete them for better viewing online and perhaps publish them online.

It's both a learning experience to me and something I'd like to put on my profile, for future reference as I am always open to the possibility of doing something I really love for a living.

Thanks for stopping by!

Skeleton Society (Page 3)

I've intentionally left out the rest of the dialog as we still need to discuss the names of certain characters and subjects.

Our pipe-smoking friend sends out a threat and reveals that the group is already found out before even taking out their plan into action.
