This has been a challenging drawing to tackle due to the complexity. I had to do a dozen sketches and even then I was not completely satisfied with the final sketch lol. I usually work with 2-3 different "layers" to compose an illustration, but this one required roughly 3-5 and there was tons of erasing and redrawing of lines, and even then I felt like I was figuring out the illustration along the way, never sure of how it would turn out haha... Quite happy with the final version though there's still room for improvement :) Let's talk about coloring it later lol
Edit: Finally managed to complete colours on this! Very happy with the results as I feel I've improved on my colouring (though I still badly need to speed up lol).
My little tribute to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy which opened recently. Was really pumped with this one as I felt I had elevated my pencils and colouring as close as it could get to Marvel standard (I hope hahahaha) :p
I had a spontaneous burst to draw the original team from Pokemon lol. Not a cartoon from my generation, but clearly it's one that has affected the lives of many 80s/90s kids' childhoods heh. Did a more edgy spin to the style :)
I got a job to
draw B/W portraits of sports legends as decoration for a store. This was
a fantastic opportunity for me to expand on and develop my previous
ventures with portraiture. I love B/W stark graphic linework in
particular so it was great to push myself to greater heights of details
and get paid for it :) Coming soon to a store (which I cannot mention
yet) near you!
Done for the TNP GOdzilla contest. Really pushed the limits on the details for this one heh, but I'm not new to drawing scaly skin heh... just never did it on such a large scale! I may consider colouring it later.
I really love Horror films heh. This was done for a Threadless contest in conjunction with the launch of the new horror film You're Next! But I'll also let this be an overall dedication to my love for awesome horror films.
Finally, the Thor threadless contest! I botched it up a little here and there, but it was an interesting experience - I had actually hatched it up with more details, but the cleaner one turned out better! :)
Featuring the eternal archenemies, Thor versus Loki!
Update: Uughs the design was rejected because they felt the wings can only be design-based. Having the wings on the characters is misleading the original design of the characters.
I revised a version with "wing-like" capes instead. Hope that gets accepted! *crossing fingers*
Update: Yay! It's in the running so here's hoping!
