I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand!



The bottom one I did with Photoshop, and the top one, I inked the digital sketch traditionally with Speedball ink and a brush. This just goes to prove that I draw MUCH better with traditional materials. The lines make it, I recon! And my digital lines need work. (They're both colored digitally)

I see a few arguments on how digital isn't art, compared to traditional. This goes to prove that digital is just as hard and demands just as much skill from the artist as traditional does.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Cover

Alice “cover” FINISHED! (I was going for a more story-book look with this one.)

Now for my favorite part which inspired the drawing:

“`But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.

`Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: `we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’

`How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.

`You must be,’ said the Cat, `or you wouldn’t have come here.’”

-Lewis Carroll - Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 6: “Pig and Pepper”

Moby Dick cover

“We then turned over the book together, and I endeavored to explain to him the purpose of the printing, and the meaning of the few pictures that were in it. Thus I soon engaged his interest; and from that we went to jabbering the best we could about the various outer sights to be seen in this famous town. Soon I proposed a social smoke; and, producing his pouch and tomahawk, he quietly offered me a puff. And then we sat exchanging puffs from that wild pipe of his, and keeping it regularly passing between us. If there yet lurked any ice of indifference towards me in the Pagan’s breast, this pleasant, genial smoke we had, soon thawed it out, and left us cronies.”

Herman Melville - Moby Dick, chapter 10: “A Bosom Friend”

finished piece for my Library's Benefit Auction that is to take place on the 10th! Woo!

Dreamin' Bout Those Dreamy Eyes

Yeah, More Bone fanart! I can't seem to get enough of these guys.
I couldn't decide whether I liked it better with the rainbow color overtop, or without... so you get both!

Moby Dick: Bro hug

I just really needed to draw a happy pic today. My gal Karly is coming over on Tuesday, and this is what I'm going to do to her when she gets here. >:D She's my best friend from childhood and conviently shorter than me... Makes it easier to give her these types of hugs.
This is Ishmael and Queequeg from Moby Dick, by the way! In case you can't recognize them in color!! On a technical note, I really botched up 'Queg's tattoos, and I don't think I gave the man enough bulk, either. I'm still getting a grasp of their designs... but, man, are they just so fun to draw! :D

Moby Dick: new hat

So, I got a chance later today to actually sit down... and so I read some Moby Dick (I'd like to get the book finished before I have to return to my schoolin'). I got the the part where Queequeg saves Toshtego, and then I was stupid and scanned ahead. I didn't read any plot, but I fell on this sentence that said Queequeg lost his hat during a boat-lowering for a group of whales.

Then I had to draw this.

Ishmael, Queequeg doesn't trust you judgement!
