DS Sketchbook

I finally got a Nintendo DS Lite. I bought it specifically so I could use Colors!, converting my DS to a little Pocket PC via the M3 DS REAL R4 card. I love the little digital sketchbook! I'll admit these sketches aren't great, but it's a start!

Future Samurai

Kind of cliche, kinda mecha-looking, but I had fun. This image sure looks a lot darker on my crappy home monitor...

Think Hellgate: London, only Hellgate: Tokyo?

Kung Fu Panda!

I'm so excited for this movie. The character development looks great! I am so excited, in fact, that I just sketched the bad dude, Tai Lung. Actually, I'm not sure he's a bad guy, but he sure looks tough! Check out an interview with Damon Bard, an amazing sculptor who made maquettes of the characters here.

I gotta get the "art of" book. A co-worker got his and I must say, it is a must-have for any aspiring artist!

Fat Man!

I've felt a bit guilty about not blogging. Well, it's not so much the blogging, but the lack of any artwork that I've been producing. So, here's a sketch I just did to work on a character for a friend. This is a very preliminary sketch of a Gladiator arena owner. Not sure if the style works for what he wants, but I sure had fun with it!

Oh, and here are some links to some very good artists:

I have a big list, but these are ones I've been looking at lately. If you have more, please share! There are a billion good artists we can all benefit from seeing...
