Video Tutorial

So, I thought about it....for a very long time, and I decided, why not right?
Soon, not yet, but soon, I will be uploading a video of how I do photoshop =)
It's just a rough piece, so no, you don't get all my tricks yet XD but this is a
generic, step by step, of what I do from sketch to final.

So, keep your eyes peeled...
OH! And have a wonderful Christmas!

A quick off topic Sketch

I was sick of homework, this took half a second and made me chuckle.
Thought I'd put it up for a giggle...and to show my drawing short hand. This is how i sketch =P Its not super pretty, but you can tell whats what. I feel like it works =)

P.S. do you wanna do my Advanced Development homework by any chance?????

Quick Of The Day

December 2nd

So I decided to practice a new style of shading with this really really quick sketch. I think it took me all of 40mins from start to finish. The original sketch may have taken 10mins....
Not sure what I think of shading this way, however, it definitely pulls the picture together more when I shade it like this...

Well, dont be too rough on her. She'll light orb your face off =)

I was told to.

Yep. I was told to put this up, even though it is not finished yet.

Okay, i've said my peace.
Keep looking for the update of the final piece =) hopefully, itll turn out.
Enjoy? It's an idea for "Pirate Fiora" skin that I was bored and started.
Tonal study first, detail and rework second, and the first flat color pass third.

Princess Luna Sketches

First attempts at the Most awesome Pony XD Well... I mean her AND Rainbow Dash.
Yeah, she's hardly in the show, but she's the Boss. Srsly, Celestia only wishes she was this cool

Anyways, enjoy my trial sketches at Luna.

Practice. Practice, PRACTICE!!!

So, Jon and I have started watching "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and I know what you're thinking...that sounds rediculous.
However MLP:FIM has been one of those shows that makes sure to include plenty of "parent humor" so that way, we as older people, can enjoy the show too!
So, if you get a minute, you should check it out! Like any tv show, don't judge it by its opening credits or by only the first episode. You gotta watch at least 5 of any show to know if it's decent or crap.

Anyways, with that out of the way, I been doing pony sketches to practice my posing ability, facial structure as well as speed tests. So, these were relatively quick sketches, that had no time for refinement.

About Sleeping and Dreams

Another quick sketch, I'm starting to really like these =)

So here's todays short "comic" picture.


Monday, September 10, 2012

Life's a bucket of apples...sometimes you run across rotten ones.

Just a comic I did during class. =) Poor girl, she looks like she could use a hug to me.


Anyways, hope you're having a better day then her!

Character Exploration

I had to create 4 very different, very distinct characters, based a bit off of North, East, South and West (directions).

Apparently I did it wrong, because I guess no one got it. =/

Anyways, I thought the drawings themselves turned out well, so I thought I'd put them up, along with their bios, if anyone would like them. They were fun.

Anyways, I tried.

And i'm insanely proud of it.


"EZER" fight begins May 8th!


Best assignment EVER in my opinion, I got to do ANYTHING STARWARS! Oh my gosh, how did i choose?! I'll probably be on a Jedi sketch binge for awhile now.

"Gem, the Glittering Girl"

Another attempt at League of Legends photoshop skills.
Yes. the topper and the "Stats" are not mine, they are L.O.L.
But I wanted it to look legitimate. I hope it does, except the background,
because I had no idea waht to do for a background...I'm not very good at
that part.

Anyways, if your interested in all teh steps, post and Ill put up the steps,
but there are a lot, over 30 saves of this puppy, probably close to 20hours.


"Beatrix the X"

Personal project/story character =)
Owned by myself.
Enjoy the 2012 version of her!
I swear she improves every year.

"Adventures with Rita"

Anthology entry that I'm doing.
I did lots of character sketches and finally came up with the style, its very different than my normal, take 15hours work. I keep the sketching lines in, just for fun and FLAT shade.

It's rather "boring" compared to other work *see dragon photoshop*
But hey, enjoy!
Oh and Ill post where the anthology will be at.
Again, Cheerio!

Illustration Friday- "Fluid"

A quick photoshop for Illustration Friday.
It's for authors all over, including myself, we all are similar in our way of painting words in our books in a very "fluid" speech. So I figured, play on words?
Hope you enjoy!
All done in Photoshop CS5.
Roughly 6 hours.

Edit to Previous Post

I made the background less plain and jazzed up the lettering.

Sunday, February 19, 2012


Well I keep getting more and more excited the closer we get to releasing!!!
I can barely keep enthusiasm down as I pose the two characters together in a scene...first real pass with the two of them...ever.
They've been modeled, sculpted, painted and rigged separately...and now they finally meet!
It's super exciting! Animation starts MONDAY =DDD
Keep us in prayers!

*set it as ur background to spread the news of "Ezer"!!!

Update #3

Finally! The characters are together and in a scene!!

Taric Background #3

"EZER" short film- Update

Dragon Background #1

Dragon Background #2

Taric from "Ezer" short film

Main male character: Taric

"Rosco the Dragon Rider"

If you've ever played "League of Legends" you know 2 things:
1. How addicting that game is
2. How amazing their characters are photoshopped.

So here's my first attempt at it.
Enjoy the Progression.
Originally it was just the dragon, then my professor gave us the Banjo Pig assignment...
well this is what happens.
Hope this helps!
Starts at bottom of post and works up. Thanks!
