Hope your Christmas was merry! This is a drawing I did as part of a Christmas drawing exchange. I used a little bit of black gouache, white colored pencil, and black colored pencil on toned paper.

I have plans to develop this into digital piece as well. Stay tuned!

Weekly Sketch: New Mantis Species

The prompt for this week's sketch was "something that you want to do on your bucket list". I realized that I didn't have a bucket list, but if I had one, this would be the first on the list. I have decided to discover a new species of insect--preferably of the order Mantodea.

This is Hymenopus sumptuosus--mimic-type mantis that lives on iris flowers. It is well-known for its large ruffly crest and thorax.

Vampires and Wyrms

This week's sketch features a familiar vampire, Count Dracula, as portrayed by Béla Lugosi...

While watching a few clips of the 1931 Dracula for the first time, I was very impressed with the actor's ominous presence. I have concluded that Béla Lugosi has several cases of double-jointedness in his fingers.

A little side-project includes a new 3D model I am developing from one of my existing character designs:

I thoroughly enjoy making these, so I decided to start developing this area in my portfolio. Here is the existing 2D art I made, for comparison. Since the details are fully realized, the sculpting process is swift. I will be taking the model into Blender to pose it more like what you see in the illustration and then import it back into Sculptris for some final tweaking.
