Sketch Challenge 4


Know what scared me as a kid?  fuckin spiders.   after a brown recluse bit me on the throat as a kid, it messed me up in the head.  So I went and drew and painted some!

Sketch Challenge #03: Penumbra



My submission for this week’s challenge! I was inspired by everyone making fun of me about the “Shadow People“. They’re real! They’re ghosts/spirits… but they look like shadows! :O Anyway, I decided to base my aliens off these shadows. They’re not fully solid beings and rely on armor to create a physical form. They emit a bright blue light through their eyes and organs… They’re called “Umbras” and their home planet is “Penumbra”. 8D

This challenge was definitely not a topic I’m comfortable with as most my art consist of pretty girls or just cute characters. :p So it was interesting to try something new and explore a different part of art I’m not familiar with. I would definitely venture with this sort of art again! I’m looking to improve and expand my skills anyway…

Quick Paint


Practicing my painting. Did this in about 40 mins or so on one layer! Getting the rough colors down, then go into cleaner rendering. :3 It’s amazing how quickly you can improve by just doing it often. Just about a year ago I didn’t think I would be doing this much painting. I used sketch, then spend hours on inking and then paint under the lines. I find inking really slow and time consuming. I do like how it looks, but with the lack of time I have these days, I rarely do it. :’D
