Photo reference sketches

Some drawings I did tonight from photo. I feel I've gotten really slow... ugh.

A couple character sketches.

I really wish I had more time to do some free drawing, but we're pretty busy at work, and I pretty much end up taking my work home from the office every night to work on it a bit more. It doesn't leave me with much free time, but I'm trying to put in what I can. Anyway, just a couple character sketches today and some Tekken fanart. Asuka's leg gear wasn't too fun to draw.. In fact, oddly enough I think the scan turned out looking better than the actual drawing. It's probably because the scanner didn't pick up so much of the blue pencil, and in the original drawing it kinda looks muddied up or messy because of the blue pencil. Oh well, hope to have more soon.

Decided to update (Oh snaps!)

These aren't too old, but not exactly new.

I painted these masks for a game I was doing at the Penny Arcade Expo. It was supposed to be a Team Fortress 2/Penny Arcade mash up game with my friends and I Spying it up as Penny Arcade characters. I kinda waited until the last minute to paint these, so the week before the expo was hell trying to get these done, but I think the work paid off, since so many people would comment on the masks asking if we got them somewhere, or if they were official swag. If you were a PAX goer this year and you saw people wearing these faces around the convention, that was my group! I was Tycho, btw if you all were wondering.

This was a commission piece requested by my mom as a gift for her boss (I think he was leaving the company). The drawing portrays my mother and her co-workers reciting common things they've said in the workplace. She wanted the style of the characters to be cartoony and sexy, kind of cherubic. This was a fun piece to work on, especially being able to try out a new style. I was mostly influenced by the work of Arthur De Pins (Warning, a lot of his art is not safe for work!).

That's all for now, I'll post some sketches tomorrow.
