Whatchu Workin’ On (5/26/15)

Here we are again, taking a look into my workspace. What’s getting my skull gears turning this week? I got a lot of projects, a lot of things I want to revise,  and a lot of ideas I want to create. Here’s some stuff I’m chipping away at.

Remember this guy? The Gorgon Awakens? I’m jumping back on that wagon. I made some touch ups with a method I’m not all too comfortable with. Added some fine line work and what would be color blocks on tracing paper, scanned it in and started going to town. I cannot for the life of me decide which color variation I like better. My Facebook dudes leaned toward the green, but I just don’t know. Want to add a background as well in white. Details, process, color variations, and original inking below:

Got a couple ideas involving an old video game character that is near and dear to my heart. Doing some anatomy studies, looking at some artwork by Simon Bisley and everybody’s favorite Bastich, Lobo. More vascularity! More muscles! More drama!

I also seem to find my first ever sketchbook once every year and have the idea to revise old characters and drawings in it to see how cool [or not cool] I can make them now. That’s something I’m going to begin tonight.

Lastly, trying to keep my pen-tool arm strong by doing a skull study in Illustrator. Not sure what will come out of this. I realize I’ve been drawing a lot of boring skull stuff lately, but I feel like it’s a subject matter that’s important to know how to draw. Originally I was going to have laser beams shooting out of his eyes but now I’m just like NAH. So, yeah no idea where this is going. A very slow process.

What’s up with you? Any requests? You working on any projects? Get at me!
