Blacksad portrait

Here is a quick portrait sketch of Blacksad I did this weekend for someone's birthday. Blacksad and the other characters in the books are really well done. I had never heard of the books until I was asked to sketch him.

Digital fat marker sketch

Took some time this morning to bang out some quick fat marker on my tablet, plus a scribble ink piece.  Hope everyone out there had a great holiday!

Another quick piece from my tablet.  I'm using symmetry for the backgrounds on my last pieces lately.  Just really simple.

My Nexus 4 got the Android 4.4 Kit-Kat update.  It bugged my LG 730 bluetooth headset.  The volume doesn't go below 4 or 5 even when it is Zero in the phone settings.  The device controls don't reliably set the volume anymore,  They go up to deafeningly loud down to what sounds like 4 or 5. Not only that, the phone volume rocker doesn't control the volume anymore when I am using my bluetooth headset.

I won't be taking the upgrade on my tablet so at least I can listen to my music without going deaf.  Will also be looking for a way to roll back my phone to 4.3

Flushing out

I have some paintings that I need to make before continuing my women in sci-fi series.

Sarah Connor piece I was making after the Ripley painting just got too tight and I needed to loosen up. I will start over on painting it again.

So here is some symmetry and faces.

quick sketch

A quick sketch from a few weeks ago.

I use this app called Cameringo.  It comes with some nice filters.  Not so great for art, but for making crazy photos they are good fun.

You are my lucky star

Finished the Ellen Ripley portrait over the weekend. It will be up in the digital paintings section in a few days. I have already planned a few more in the series. 'No fate but what we make,' 'No power in the 'verse can stop me,' and 'Nothin' but the rain.'
'You are my lucky star...' -- Ellen Ripley
'You are my lucky star...' -- Ellen Ripley

Next painting

Right now I'm working on a painting a portrait bit of Ellen Ripley. The paintings I have planned will likely become a small portrait series of women in science fiction. For now though, Ellen Ripley.

Girl with Cow Skull

I made a painting with a cow skull in it.  Was working on this a week ago and picked it back up today to finish it.  Final version is added to the digital paint gallery.

Prints are here: http://society6.com/schmexy/girl-with-cow-skull_Print

 

Quick layer paint

Painting fast, building up several layers and flattening. Repeat four times each time using previous flattened group as a background painting over with more layers of transparent brushes.

Combined

Put together some quick marker panels.

Extreme close up!

This is all I felt like posting tonight.  The stack of unfinished sketches is growing. Will take care of those soon.
