Insight into my mind.

So, I've been wanting to join the Outsider Art Club for a while now, but haven't found enough time to finish a drawing til now.
The last topic they posted was Celebrity Faceoff. So I decided to do AvP. (zombie) Anna Nicole versus Paris Hilton. I wish I'd done a better drawing, but I wanted to focus more on the digital painting, since it's been forever since I have done that. I've never been all that good at composition anyway.
So here's some progress pics and the final image.

I guess this could be filed under Daily Doodle

We're doing monkey concept art, and I got a little far away from the style we are supposed to be doing, but oh well. So I figured I'd post it here, seeing as how it's guaranteed this one will be tossed out right away. I based it on a species I believe is called Hanuman Langur.

doodles, explained

In case anyone reads these posts and is wondering about my daily doodles, they are not actually meant to be good or anything. I just open a photoshop file and start drawing with the wacom tablet, and I just draw without thinking about what I'm drawing. Kind of free association for drawing. So, rather than just throw them away, I decided to start posting them. Just for the hell of it. And that is a what a daily doodle is.



just another random ridiculous thoughtless drawing.

just more doodling. No rules, no aesthetics, no nuthin'

skin lovin'

So anyway, I kept thinking about this method for making that translucent quality of skin that you notice in close-ups. I was watching Rome last night on HBO, and I kept noticing it on the skin around the actors' eyes especially. So I decided today to try and get it using the technique I kept meaning to try out. And sure enough, it worked just fine. I'll have to write up a new Trade Secret on my site about it soon. notice the render time. yeah.
