Little Doodle

I haven't posted in a few days because life has gotten in the way of sketching as much as I wish I could.  But in a good way.  But things should liven up again soon. :)

Cutest Lil' Bear This Side of Care-A-Lot

Not much to say. Just a compilation of sketches of this really cute bear that I've done over the past 4 months or so.

The only thing cooler than a pirate... a pirate that is also a space monster. Monster pirates rock. More so than ninja pirates. Although a monster ninja pirate would reign supreme. I did this guy in an hour from drawing to finishing up the painting which is pretty good for me, especially since it's a little bit of a style change. Normally it takes me a bit longer. And I did it while listening to old 80's TV show theme songs. (Nothing like painting a scary pirate monster while listening to the 'Zoobilee Zoo' theme song.) So I'm happy, and will now go to sleep because it's late.

Meet Maarten!

This is Maarten, a little friendly dinosaur I designed. He started off as a doodle, but I liked him so much I decided to develop him into a full-blown character. I really liked how I tried something new with his overall shape and design; I used a lot of different shapes in him, and I'm really happy with the results. I'm going to experiment more often. Expressions and movements to come!!

More Amminals

More gestures. These were done out of my head with pen. Good times.

I'll Be A Blue, Blue Penguin

Is he cold, pigmentally challenged or really really sad?.. I don't know but if you give him a hug, he'll love you regardless! Just a quick Photoshop painting. Nothing too detailed. I was originally going to name this blog 'The Blue Penguin' but I decided against it and did this sketch instead. I memorandum, 'Blue Penguin Blog'. May ye rest in peace, ye cuddly flightless bird.

Obligatory 'People at a Diner' sketches

So it seems like in almost every single artist's blog, they have a few doodle of people at restaurants and diners, usually depressed, broken waitresses, strange-lookin' scrawny guys or truckers. I don't have any diners nearby, so I used my imagination! YAY! So these people don't exist. I made 'em up. But I liked the way they turned out! Just a ballpoint pen on paper. Simple yet effective.

Morocco Pt. 2

This is how the Morocco sketch is coming along. I've just taken it into Photoshop, added a paper texture and started to lay in some colors. So, it's slow going, mostly because I've been busy as of late. Hopefully though I'll get some more time to work on it.  I'm happy with how the clouds turned out.  That was a happy accident!

One More

One more monster doodle to add to the repertoire. This lil' guy is of the electrical variety. Good times with ballpoint pen!

So I've been drawing some monsters lately after seeing 'Cloverfield'. Of course, mine aren't the New York-Eating-Godzilla-Wanna-Bes, but monsters are monsters, and are ALWAYS fun to draw! Just some quick pencil and pen sketches the good ol' sketchbook. 


This is a sketch I did at the Morocco pavillion at EPCOT. I'm trying to get a little more experience with architectural drawings and such. I'm currently trying to paint it in Photoshop, so if it turns out well, you'll see this again. But with colors.
