Happy Early Easter!

I am now back in school at UVU here in Utah. I have joined the UVU Illustration Club, where I get to hang out with some amazing artists. Today we completed a service project, preparing Easter Prints for the Primary Children's Hospital, in SLC, UT. There were some great images completed, here is mine and if you want to check out the rest of the stuff go to the UVU Illustration Blog by clicking here:

New Art!!

I know it's been awhile. I started school again at UVU. Hoping to get into the Illustration program. In the meantime. I joined the UVU Illustration Club. Get to hang out with some amazing artists. I'll have to put up links to their blogs and web sites, in the near future.

I am trying to do a full fledged digital painting. This is my first time working on something like this, also my first time working in Corel Painter 12.

Here is the original sketch:

Here is the WIP:

Haha, I still have a long way to go!!!

Manga and Anime.

This next post somewhat shows how much of a nerd I am....although I guess that depends on your point of view. I have always been a fan of the Japanese style of illustrating through the manga and anime styles. A couple of years ago I stumbled across the YouTube channel of Mark Crilley. I love his line work and the simplicity with which he makes some amazing art in my opinion. In trying to understand some basics I have started going through some of his how to videos on YouTube. I absolutely love his stuff. Here's what I have come up with.

Drawing Eyes


And one more.

I was really pleased with the way this one turned out, especially since my pencil lead kept breaking. =/

I like how Mark does his line work and shading. I like it so much I have tried to incorporate it in my practice of drawing some more Andrew Loomis heads. Here are the results:

So not bad, but not my favorites.

And this is what I was able to do today! I like these the best!!!

Anyway, let me know what you think, comments, suggestions, thoughts, criticisms, I'll take it all. Looking to get as good as I can. I start taking classes in the fall at UVU. I hope to get in to a class or two with Don Seegmiller, Can't wait!!!

Aaaaaaaand I am back!

Wow! Life and work have been crazy. Things are finally slowing down again though, I am so happy for that! The last couple of months I haven't been doing much drawing, however, that has also changed. Here are some of the things have I been doing the last couple of weeks. Hope you like it.
