A WIP check-up

So for final's week I did turn in my SOI contribution of the mob boss. Although, I'm not done yet. It's about sixty percent of the way there I would say. Still have a lot to do with the frames, general transitions/clean-up, color corrections, and his hands. Considering entirely repainting the hands. With reference this time, because up until this point I've ignored reference. I'm sure there are teachers somewhere scheming to have me off'd right now, just because of it. 

Thanks to my friend, Nathan Biroschek for the photo.

From a small competition between friends.

Through pure blind luck, me and a few friends got the chance to compete for a cover contest for Columbus Alive Magazine. Unfortunately, finals took their due on the image and it became a last minute thing due to simple deadline dates. Very rushed from beginning to end, with alot of things I would like to change... may just change them.

Concept was a contemporary twist on Santa. They threw some suggestions our way, and two of the three involved alcohol. I think all of our illustrations have beer in it somehow.

Final ComicBook Page

Just finished this up tonight. The second comic book page of my 13 wives story. Technically not the second page in the whole story, but for the class, it is the second page. It's annoying to me that I can't ink it. I really, really want to ink it. It would be so much easier to read without that visual noise. Lemme know what you think. Not a whole lot happens on this page, it's mainly just a intro page for this character.

The other page is in the mega-post, just a tiny bit down the page.

A Knight, His Soul, and Some Crazies.

Quick Edit: A speedie I did as a warm-up for today, before I get painting. Started it last night when I couldn't sleep, added highlights and a few more scribbles today.

Finished it up as much as I will for class. Getting this to print halfway correctly will require an act of god. Lot of things I wish I could do, fix and work on, but I have to crank out another painting tommorrow and tonight I have to get some more LA class stuff done. Figured I would just throw it up on here.

All photoshop from start to finish. No ref.

Two Chinese and a Speedie.

Edit: Can't sleep. So I did a really quick speedpaint. I really loved painting it. At the end of it though, I can feel Ashley Wood's resent haha. I can't wait till I have a new tablet. This squiggly line/no control thing is getting old after about a year. Anyway, done for an Oondu activity.

Two new things. The first is based on the memoir "No Name Woman". It came out rather clse to how I wanted. I doubt I will change much more about it. The second is a sketch on bristol I started for a bookmark.
