Learning Zbrush

I'm learning Zbrush at work. This was my first attempt to do something in 3d.

This is a 2 page spread from my med Moleskin sketchbook. I don't always like my own art, but I LOVE the drawing of the girl with stripes on the lower left. I think I nailed the attitude I wanted her to have

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thanks you for visiting my blog. No matter how you celebrate it, I hope the holiday season was happy and that 2012 will be a better year for all of us and that you have a prosperous year both presonally and professionally!

The Process:

Step 1: I wanted to experiment a little with drawing in the computer, so I drew a rough in Autodesk Sketchbook express. At this point my goal was just to be loose, I was literally 'making it upa as I went along.
Step 2: I took my sketch into Photoshop and added it to a layer and traced over it. I did this step in Photoshop because I am more comfortable with the layers and sizing the print in Photoshop since I am just lerning Sketchbook. Once I got something I felt I could work with, I turned it light blue and printed it out at 11x 14.
Step 3: I inked directly on the light blue print. This was the most enjoyable step, becasue all the 'work' had already been done and I just focused on line weights and texture.
Step 4: I scanned the inks into Photoshop, dropped the light blue, then added colors.

More sketchbook stuff

Here's a few more sketches from the last month or so...

Drawing of a co-worker

Working on figures

Trying to capture a likeness of The Hulk

The Scarlet Witch!

Book Cover, part 2

Well, after everything was approved on the book cover and after I got paid, the writer wrote me. Basically he had decided that he wanted something a little more cartoony and he asked if I'd like another shot, so this is what I did:
The funny thing was I had thought he wanted something more realistic, so I steered my first version that way. Now I think everybody is happy and that's the most important thing.


It's been too long since I updated my blog. My cover below didn't go as smooth as I had hoped (more on that in another post) but here's a few sketches for now.

My wife has an iphone and is checking her email while we are waiting for food. I would be annoyed, but I was drawing, so what can I say..

I had to go to the doctor recently to get chacked out after having some vertigo. Luckily, it just an infection. Also luckily, I didn't have to sit on this table!
