Kuta Contest and more...
So Sean "Cheeks" Galloway is having a contest. Draw his character, if he picks it, you get a statue and he'll use it for an upcoming card set. Fingers crossed!
So I started first with the head. That's most important. It's what makes the character stand out. I went with my first drawing. Pick a head any head....
Then I expanded with the body. Here's the original sketch for that.
Once I got into Adobe Illsutrator, I make changes and adjustments as I saw fit.
In other news, I tested for a kids book. Although, I won't be working on BananaTail, I had a lot of fun working on this sample piece. Not bad a for a couple of hours work.
It felt good to do a few color pieces on the MAC, it's been forever since I've done anything digitally.
And finally, the photo shoot. It went really well despite the overcast. But it actually worked to our advantage. Hired a friend of my brother, Dan, for a young guy I was really impressed at his skill level. He was quite professional and patient. Check his website, listed on the menu bar, for his online portfolio.
Other than the header here's a few other shots I'll be using for upcoming promotional material:
Not much else to tell really. As always, working hard on the 2nd chapter of the new book. I should have a few panels for you guys soon.
As always, I'm taking commissions and if interested, please email me at:
