"Fine Dining" - digital art, 2014.

After painting Valen and Todd, I thought I should try my hand at painting a BIGGER piece with an honest-to-goodness background (not just a little blob of dirt floating in the middle of nowhere). 
SO IT TOOK LIKE A WEEK, and I’m pretty pleased with the results! Manga Studio 5 makes working with perspective SUPER EASY even for a big perspective-phobic dork like myself. 
Once again, I used Ray Frenden’s painterly brushes, along with some of the dry brush tools from his latest brush set (mostly for the character lineart.)

DOODLE DUMP.   This has been a weird month for me. Got laid off, but damn if I’m not doing more drawing than I have been in ages. Startin’ to mull over story ideas for these dorks.

I spent a little time today revising comic ideas/outlines and then drawing the characters, for the hell of it. It’s been a while for a couple of these folks! LOOOOOVE inkin’ stuff in sai, gosh.

made a thing for a new icon, it turns out I still don’t know how to make art that works as an icon. OH WELL! SPOOKY!

CHARACTER DOODLES I vomited up this evening at work!

I finally settled on a design for Mally (the owl with the freakishly huge arms) so I don’t feel like changing it every single time I draw her. HOORAY FOR ME!

Still not satisfied with Todd’s outfit, though I think I’ll stick with the stupid fuzzy half-boots. I like nonsensical footwear!

I was having a hard time thinking of REGULAR general use outfits for my characters to wear (besides the ones I already draw them in, anyways) so I drew them in goofy winter outfits instead.  Boots with no toes?  WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS.
I like the idea of Griselda having a tail sweater, though.  Gonna stick with that, ahaha.
(I’ve been watching so much She-Ra it’s VERY tempting to just have everything I draw wear some stupid barbarian outfit with bracers and exposed legs.  I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD OFF THAT IMPULSE MUCH LONGER)

This took forever and a half! Seemingly.  But I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
