Michaelangelo’s David as a Jack O’ Lantern

I’ve been joining gameartisan’s contests for the past few months just to have something to focus my practice work on, and this month’s contest was jack o’ lanterns.  I was initially turned off by the concept, since I wanted something that would help me in my anatomy study.  But then I saw a book on Michaelangelo lying around in my room and had the idea to paint a pumpkin head on a Michaelango sculpture, then have numerous pumpkin museum goers gawking at it.  My mind works in mysterious and disturbing ways, I know.

Skeletal Mage v2

A much more refined skeletal mage.  I’m still a bit nervous to submit it to the art director, so I thought I’d put it up here first.  All this drawing is burning me out, so this weekend’s shanghai trip should do me some good.  (But I’ll probably still be doing drawing exercises while waiting at the airport anyway).

Skeletal Mage

I’ve recently been talking to the Art Director of the Warlord CCG, who was kind enough to give me an art test and a few comments on my work despite having no experience in the field.

This concept was ultimately rejected, but I thought I’d post it here anyway.

Under the Bridge

Submitted to a Wacom contest, which will hopefully win me some Wacom swag.

Samurai Robot

Just a one and a half hour painting to work out my frustrations with an employer who hasn’t gotten back to me yet.

Updated imgae.

It’s been an exhausting 4 days of drawings and revisions, but I finally came up with something I’m happy enough with to submit for an art test.  This came after a ton of help from folks and chris, to whom I’m very grateful to.

Macau street scene

Done in practice for crowd scenes.  This was mostly to get over the fear of drawing such large, crowded scenes.  It’s very unpolished right now, but think of it as a first draft.  6-7 hours over 3 days.

Figure Drawing

No updates lately, so I thought I’d show you some of what I’ve been up to.  This was actually done a week or so ago.  I have a hard time drawing the neck bent over like that, it feels unnatural for some reason.
