Lil Yoda

A digital painting I did of a little yoda. I see a lot of things that I should change, but again, who cares, its just practice.

Here's the initial sketch

Wednesday, October 19, 2011


So Ive been brushing up on my photoshop skills & practicing my digital painting for the past week and a half. This is something that has been long overdue. Its something that i've wanted to learn to do for a while. I've been using photoshop for many years now, but never could grasp the technique of doing digital paintings. So I'll be posting some sketches I've done & just keep practicing. These are by no means completed works. I may decide to blow them up & redo them by traditional means, but we'll see. any constructive criticisms, or pointers are welcome.

this one came out a little too dark.

The Easter Bunny

Ok, so its not your traditional easter bunny.....don't really know what I was thinking here, just practicing with my brush pen & thats what came out, I think it would look cool with some flat bright bold colors. pretty weird though.

Lady Clown

You Know those times when your just staring off into space, at the texture on a wall, or the pattern on a floor, or even at the clouds & you spot an almost perfectly clear image, but as soon as you take your eyes off of it, its gone? Well this was one of those times except I happened to have my sketch book with me.

The Wishing Tree

Here's an idea i had, of an enchanted tree. Many creatures would come and wish upon the tree, but soon after the wish is granted it claims your soul.
I like to draw trees with faces in them....i don't know why, always have & always will. Actually its been a little while since I've done one, so i think thats what I'll do today. I'll post it soon!

Reptilian Caterpillar

So here's another weird little bug I dreamt up. I sketched him out in marker. This fella is a reptilian caterpillar. As you can see he is unique by having an odd shaped reptile head and arms. while the back end is more of a worm. it has small spike-like protrusions along the segment of his body to help with climbing, & its skin is covered with scales. if you look at the back end, it has a small feather-like organ in the back which it uses for combing & spreading the silk it creates. Much like a slikworm it creates layesr of silk to fortify its home which is much like a funnel spiders home. Large corridors of silk in a cluster, where it can lay in wait & ambush its prey.

Genetically altered bugs sketch - Carpenter Wasp

As a kid, I liked bugs, as do a lot of young boys, the only thing is I never grew out of it. When I was little, I used to keep a spider jar & catch every spider I could find. As I got older I still kept a spider jar, except now it was black widows. There was a time where I kept a black widow on my desk at work ( in a container of course), because I thought she was good luck. I found this adolescent widow in my bathroom & raised her until death. I believe that every creature has its place in nature, & even if I find a spider, or cricket, or a lizard then I make sure to catch them & put them outside. The reason I mention this is because it explains why I'm always sketching little bugs, real & made up. so here's a series of bug sketches & this one is called the Carpenter wasp.

The Carpenter Wasp- This guy is about the size of a squirrel & has been known to kill such creatures in self defense. His colors & markings resemble a wasp, but he's much larger & more aggressive. He has a cluster of eyes atop his head & two large feeler antennae. His Primary diet consists of termites. He uses those large jaws to rip into the dead wood of trees. His long snake like tongue is covered with an intense sticky fluid which he then uses to collect the termites. The carpenter wasp has been known to eat the flesh of larger prey in extreme situations & is equipped with a vary large & powerful stinger that is used to incapacitate its victims. These creatures will most likely make their nests in trees, often the vacant termite nests become resting spots or permanent homes.
