Marker Monday 5-9-16

This drawing was based off of a photo that I pushed and pulled into an entirely new car shape.  It was first hand drawn with pencils and then colored with Prismacolor markers and color pencils - - the gradient background was added in Photoshop.

Green Goblin JMH

This started out as a "shape exercise" and slowly morphed into a goblin of some sort.  I wanted it to look funny, but a little creepy at the same time - - at least that's how it looks to me.
FYI - painted in Photoshop.

Throwback Thursday 4-21-16

A Photoshop painting I did a few years ago.  I added a little color to it today to change it up a bit.

April Golfer

Even though the golf courses opened up last week, I woke up this morning to about 2" of snow on the ground and a wind chill around 10 deg F.  I "borrowed" one of my Marker Monday drawings from last month and painted in the body and background thinking about early Fall - - my favorite time of the year to play golf in the Northeast.  I'm not wishing away the Spring and Summer, but snow in April?  Cut it out.  We're supposed to get more tonight - - so that's why this guy looks unhappy.

Update - - 5" of new snow fell today.

March Of Robots 3-27-16

Easter put me a day behind - - so here's yesterday's bot today.  I'll catch up eventually.

Here's the pencil sketch I did before I re-did it in Photoshop.  I think I stayed pretty close to the original idea.

Some day I'll have one of these done when there is still enough daylight to get a decent picture.

Blue Jungle Dog

The Blue Jungle Dog is a very rare breed of hairless dog that is often seen wearing an orange sweatshirt because deep down they're Syracuse fans, but they don't know how to read or write so they don't bother to put that on the sweatshirt.

This drawing started off as a "mouse" like creature, but as I continued to work/draw/paint it slowly morphed into a "dog" or something.  The animation below shows the very rough doodle on paper done with a red color pencil.  The next two frames show how I refined it in Sketchbook Pro (I'm still working with the very first version of this program).  The last frame shows additional work done in Photoshop CS2 (yeah I know that's old also, but sometimes that's how it goes).
