HAPPINESS

Image

happiness_watermarkWOW! IT HAS BEEN A WHILE!
So, so sorry that I’ve disappeared for quite a long time! Between work and life stuffs, I haven’t time nor energy for artwork, so I’ve been away for about a year.

I’m still not fully back (can’t take commissions), but at the very least I wanted to start arting for myself again to work out all the rust I’ve accumulated since I’ve been away. My post today was inspired by a cute dog photo I saw on my Facebook feed one day:

Originally this wasn’t going to be a new version of feral Kaze that has been floating around in my head for months, but once I started to flesh this piece out, I just knew I had to draw feral Kaze in one of her more “canine” moments. (She is part husky after all. LOL!)

COMMISSION: Ba’ar Bear

Image

Baar Bear Commission_watermarkCommission for Ba’ar Bear of his big black grizzly bear character lounging around on a nice, peaceful summer day.

Definitely a piece I was looking forward to, as it was different than the rest in this commission batch, as it it was not a night or dark scene. Can’t say I haven’t been following Ba’ar’s example this week, as I’ve been taking a little bit more time for myself than normal to relax and unwind from the constant pressures of work.

COMMISSION: Inner Phantom

Image

Trey Cuffed Commission_watermarkCommission for CrimzonPhoenix of Facebook of his character, a black wolf with blue tinted fur and blue eyes wearing military dog tags, wrestling with a phantom that resides in his head. It’s a very personal piece, and I’m glad I was able to take it on.

The image that I was given for the phantom looked very much like it was in the shape of a Haunter (Pokemon), which explains why the phantom in this image may look like a Haunter to some people. However, I tried to make the phantom more unique by adding fire, lava drool, molten rock teeth, and uniquely fiery red glowing eyes. I think by adding those features it made the phantom seem more sinister and it’s own unique being.

Also, I used A LOT of experimental techniques on this piece, and I think it came out rather well. 🙂

COMMISSION: Darkwolf611 (No Stars in the City)

Image

Anthony Richards Stars commission_watermark

Another commission for the amazing Darkwolf611 of his character looking up at the starry night sky in a city environment. Darkwolf611 informed me that he is also going to write a story for this image to accompany this image, so once that is done, I’ll be linking that to the image as well.

More on the technical sides of things, I painted A LOT of bricks in this piece. Because I don’t do a lot of geometric shapes, the perspective seems to look a little off, but it doesn’t seem to effect the over all composition of the piece too much.

COMMISSION: Cthulhu Valentine’s Day Card

Image

Cthulhu V-Day Card_watermark

THIS IS NOT FOR FREE USE! PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS FOR YOUR OWN VALENTINE’S DAY CARD!
The commissioner for this has asked to remain anonymous until after Valentine’s Day so the commissioner’s significant other won’t know about this yet. The commissioner said I could post it now though. (Yay!)

This project took about 6 hours to complete in Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop CS4. The premise is “cute yet deadly Valentine’s Day Cthulhu”, the H.P. Lovecraft Elder God character that is known for destroying worlds. Honestly, this project made me so happy. I’m SO glad that I was commissioned to do this!

HAPPY EARLY VALENTINE’S DAY, EVERYONE! 😀

3-D Modeling: Dog Heads

Image

Dog Head Dog Head_colorsTonight I experimented with a lovely, free, 3-D Modeling program called Sculptris. After about 3 hours, this is the result. I’m still trying to figure out how to paint the models, but for now enjoy these silly dog heads. The top is a rotation of the original model. The bottom is the same head with different materials applied to it.

Soul Resonance

Image

Soul EvansI’ve been watching a lot of Soul Eater lately. The character of Soul is just awesome, so I thought I would do some fan art in the combination of my style and the style of the show. It’s been a while since I’ve done fan art, let alone a full painting. I’m reasonably happy with it.
