the new stuffin

broke out the prisma markers before they dried up. these are just some more figure studies, about 1 minute each. i got a million others but didn't wanna get too repetitive on here.

On a side note, i bought some water colors and acrylics the other day, i'll show em off when i get some time to paint later in the week.

scanner freak out

scanner is down at the moment (hopefully i'll get a new one within the week)
In the mean time, here's an old Bush caricature i did a few months ago. the background is just some photoshop brushes i had been playin' around with. enjoy (and check back for updates in the next couple days or so).

this man is genius

Caricature of Deputy Jr. from Reno 911. (he's also the writer/director for the show, and upcoming film: Balls of Fury) google that shite.

quick sketch

random meat-head (#5,685,413). i can't help but draw muscular dudes clad in leotards everytime my pen touches the pad.

PS: my upcoming posts will hopefully contain some different and varied styles (also, semi-completed pieces), and not so much testosterone

finally a taste...

here's something at least. It's a rough sketch of a character i plan to start modeling in Maya the next few days. i'll be posting some more stuff as the week progresses. (I'm finally getting a wacom tablet so posting stuff will be easier since it'll be drawn directly onto my computer)
