[x] Stop! Mucha Time!

I decided do a digital painting of the sketch that I scribbled in my sketchbook yesterday and I wanted to do it with an Alfons Mucha feel. Mucha always chose women for his subject matter so I painted a male version of the concept of Time. Compositionally, it's inspired by Mucha, but my roommate says the painting itself has an Alex Ross feel. :-) Totally not a bad thing, in my opinion. HAHA.

Anywhoo... Hi. :-)


[x] Sketchbook Musings & Photoshop-ness...

work in progress

In addition to the SF matte painting I'm working on, I dug up an old illustration that I did as a reinvention of the Alice in Wonderland story that I did when I was at school at the Laguna College of Art & Design. I came across it as I was cleaning out some old image folders I had on my computer and decided to re-paint it partly because of reading the books The Looking Glass Wars but mostly because I was inspired by some of the concept art for it by Chris Applehans.

Below are a couple sketches I did during one of my regular coffee-shop adventures with my homie and roommate, Derek Brand:

Hail, Caesar!
A lot of time when I'm sketching, I do a lot of "stream of thought" drawing where I doodle with no particular idea of what I'm drawing or what it's going to end up being. For this sketch, I dunno what I was thinking about, but it started off as a straight-on sketch of a Roman woman... but then my pen started drawing lines on her face and it turned into a Roman woman...assimilated by the Borg. HA!

Father Time...when he was in his late 20's...


[x] Fire

Your next Firelord of the Fire Nation. Bow down... and fear him. :-D HAHAHA (Probably one of my more geekier moments.)


[x] An Apple a Day...

Today's photoshop-sketch - a still life study of some apples that my mommy wants me to eat before they turn. Heh... (Instead of eating them, I ended up painting them. At least I put them to some sort of use. HAHA. Maybe I'll have one right now, actually...)

::CHOMP:: Om nom nom nom...


[x] Lazy Boy

Not sure why, but I painted out the ultimate recliner of the 21st century... fully equipped with hovering flatscreen television screens and computer monitors and a small drink table for all those diet cokes. :-D
