Sawyer the Dog!

Digital Painting of someone's beautiful lab I was commissioned for. I won't mention names since its a Christmas present from them and I don't want to spoil their surprise! :)

If you'd like something like this, a dog, cat, person, bottle of gin, whatever..... I'm still available before Christmas for a couple of more.

You HAVE TO Stay Quiet!

Since I hope to find my way into illustration for kids work one day, I thought I should start doing some concepts just to show some skills/looks that are solely mine.

This might be for a story of a little girl hiding a dragon in her tree house.

Painted in Photoshop.

PS: I just recently redesigned my site, go check that out if you haven't in a while.

The Bad Apple

The Bad Apple started as an idea to make a pin-up style illustration of Snow White, and turned into a concept ad for a [fake as far as I know] pub.

I used some old coloring book pictures for reference, entirely created in photoshop.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to or not, but I know how Disney can be about their characters showing up in places they don't deem appropriate, so.....

Snow White is property of Disney, and this image is solely a concept piece not intended for any financial gain whatsoever.

Logo Design

This is sort of another imaginism inspired thing. Bobby Chiu has been doing a lot of live sketches lately, and I drew this little guy for a friend in pencil, decided to photoshop it, and now here it is. This was maybe an hour you could distill down to about 30 minutes if I didn't play so much. :) click through to my deviant art and a larger version. prints available on etsy!

Wiggle Warily

There's a lot of stuff about this that makes me wince. I might put up a version later that is a little more refined, if that's even the word I want to use.

However, it was inspired by this young lady's self-portrait.

Assignment 6

Click to enlarge. Before you go giving me too much credit, the assignment was just to paint the hair, the face wasn't my doing. All I did to the face was the hair's shadows. I learned a TON on this lesson, really.
