;> Another master copy, this one being after Isidore Pils.
I suppose I post so much digital work that it’d be good to point out that this one is just ink/ink wash and a bit of graphite. Also, new finished illustration on the way.

Stormlands, a quite finished sketch. I suppose they call those finished pieces, though.
I did this about two weeks ago and touched it up more recently.

older airplanes, including the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. 

last sketches for now. there’s quite a few more, but I’d like to discover different ways of going about these before I post. 

tanx and gunz.

also media exploration, graphite + brushpen + white conte is pretty neat.

Some doodled classic cars and a few architectural designs, using shapes from the cars as their bases. It’s a bunch of fun designing things using inspiration and design motifs from somewhat unrelated objects - in this case, cars and edinburgh-ish dwellings.

;> doodly bugs and things.

Ah, it’s been awhile.

Anyways, incoming sketch dump, I’ll see about posting a few a day this week. I’ve been doing some light freelance while taking classes out here in Pasadena, and these are some of the collected goodies from Viscom 1 at CDA.

First page includes exercises and some plants, drawn from life at the Los Angeles Arboretum. The second page are collected sketches from animals at the zoo (top left), and some made up ones from imagination.

meguskus said: Hi! I love you and I'm honored that you're following me back. :3 My question is whether you're making any money with your art. Are you freelancing, doing commissions, tried applying anywhere? I've noticed that a lot of very skilled artists don't get the recognition they deserve and can't get a job, so that's making me pretty worried about my future.

hahaha my goodness, well thank you.

Also yes, I’ve been making a bit off of freelance and commissions - nothing super well-paying yet, but I’m happy. I know it can be daunting, what with the competition and even just wondering if you’ll make it at all, but just push to be the artist you deserve to be and the work will follow - I can promise that.

If there’s anything more specific you’d like to know then feel free to ask, if I can’t answer then I think I can at least direct you to someone who can ;>

Frankenstein - Personal work.
Loosely based off of Mary Shelley’s novel, but set in a world with magic and wizards and stuff.

faraway structures with moody colors - the experience.

some doodles.

Master studies; after Isaac Levitan, Edgar Payne, and Carlos de Haes. A bit more finished than I typically do, and I might take the Levitan one even further.

Also, newer doodles soon.

A master study after Van Dyke, the portrait of Cornelis Van Der Geest. Probably the most difficult master study I’ve done so far.
There were a whole bunch of aspects to the painting technique, the colors and process that I hadn’t considered or planned for that I ran into half-way through the painting, so I’ll have to try to revisit this sometime soon and try again. Still learned a bunch, but I can do better I think.

2 hour pose and a still life. The key light on the model was harsh so I figured I may as well make her evil-lookin’.
