The Hand of Doom



Believe it or not, I'm still under the weather, but not as bad as the last couple of days. I don't know, it just feels like these cold/flu viruses get worse every year. Anyways, felt pretty good in the afternoon, so I sat next to the kitchen table where I could get some real sunlight for a change, and did a sketch. Needless to say, I'm back immobilized, getting ready to watch an episode of Lost. Why do I continue to watch a show that never gives any answers you might ask? I have absolutely no idea. Here's to another cup of NyQuil! Cheers.

Samurai




Want to thank all you guys that are consistently checking out the blog! It really is helping me be motivated enough to keep doing something to post. At the same time, I've been searching the blog world and finding really amazing and talented artists out there. I'll be consistently putting up links so you guys could check them out too.

Finally had a few hours at the end of the day to sit on a kitchen table and draw something. To be honest, nothing was coming out that looked remotely interesting and in the end I gave up. Out of desperation, I started tightening up the drawing so that something could be posted. Even threw in some grey tones so it might help. It's clunky, but at least I had a chance to do something creative.

Who's That Girl?


Can't believe a week is already on it's way out! Yikes! I guess that's a good thing, but really haven't had much time to just sit down and draw you know? Sigh. I guess that's a part of life. Things happen and you just got to roll with it. Got more errands to run today and I'm hoping there's some time left of the day to do a piece I've wanted to do all week. We'll see. Meanwhile, here's a sketch to keep the creative fuel going. Later guys!

Expression Study


The family and I are planning on heading out today, to enjoy the beautiful weather outside. One of the things I've learned having a family is to know that you've got to make time for your family besides your art, and that familly always comes first, so that makes art number two on the list. Strangely enough, I think the life experiences that you gain from having a family only helps to richen your creativity in your art. But it's something that I've been juggling with the last couple of years. Any of you artists out there feel this way? Speaking of feeling, this tonal sketch does not represent my own mood I'm in today, but I'm sure we've all felt like him one time or another. Have a great day guys!

Cardboard Sketch


I'm not the most prepared person as far as keeping your sketchbook and pencil handy, so often I find myself in situations where I've got to improvise. I was in my in-law's store just talking and waiting around, and I decided to do some sketching. They didn't have any paper, so I just tore off a piece of cardboard from a box, grabbed the nearest pen I could find, and sketched away. It's not the prettiest drawing, but it sure was fun.

Hulk


Man! You'd think getting a little time off from work would give you hours of free time to just draw and post stuff, but this has definately not been the case for the last couple of days. Obligations and errands. That's pretty much my life's story the last week. Anyways, here's a quick sketch of our lovable green buddy from the Marvel universe. Wasn't too fond of the first movie but really amped about the sequel coming out. I hope the sequel fares better.

Warrior


I want to start off by saying that no, I did not draw this one in the luxuries of my own bathroom. (For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, please read the last post.) I drew this sketch in the office today, in between conversations with my director. Drawing conceptual sketches like these is a fun process, just lightly sketching scribble lines until an idea forms in my head. Nail down the final lines and you've got something hopefully people would be interested in looking at. Or not.
