IW: Quickie

Just a quick post for tonight, as the content is pretty simple.

It’s a selection of avatar pictures that I have made for general uses. I’m just trying to experiment a little bit with how I draw my illustrations and I’m beginning to broaden my spectrum of offers to the public (well… Internet).

IW: T-Bot

Pay welcome to my new character, whom the idea was originally thought of by fellow artist Paul Jones. I then developed it so it would be more in-depth. Basically Paul siggested “try drawing a guy in a suit, with a television for a head” and the cogs started whirring from that point and I’ve now developed the concept further.

T-Bot is a genderless person that projects his emotions and his language through his screen. He displays programs like stories on his TV screen face and has the ability to project these “programs” and even animate them physically in the real world. If T-bot feels happy, then he/she can project rainbows, sunny skies, etc. But if they’re bad emotions, he/she can animate fire, bad weather and such. T-bot’s power is virtually unlimited, but he/she takes the responsibility that comes with it.

I have some illustrations of what T-Bot looks like and some examples of what he can do:

It may not EXACTLY be wednesday that I posted it, but it’s because I work late… Sorry guys, this is still Illustration Wednesday. Well, look forward to next week 🙂

Art Compilation

I know you’ve missed these posts… No? Oh… Oh well, here is my latest bunch of artwork I have completed within these past few weeks. It’s a medley of fanart, illustration and just basic traditional work.

All of it was impulsive, since I was a tad bored most days and these were the ideas that popped into my head. Later on with these pieces, I realised my style of art is a moderately successful combination of pencil and ink markings together. Using pencil for initial sketches, then adding the detail, to then define specific details and add shadow/depth to the piece by inking… Still leaving the pencil traces, but just cleaning up a bit.

We have a hippie, ironman, spiderman, ibiza and some fanart here too:

The same goes with colouring: Light and dark shades with coloured pencils, then using coloured ink to define lines and add more depth in the shading. Some may say this is garish, but in my previous post with an artwork of Urgot fanart, I can see how effective it can be. I will still be sticking with only the “1-Colour” colour scheme and this will be the most prominent colour. The piece in red is League of Legends fanart of a character called Vladimir and his prominent colour is red to feature the colour of his armour, as well as the pool of blood he wallows in.
It is good to start out with nice, gentle strokes (something I still need work on, as I’m too hard-pressing) to gain an initial sketch JUST so you can let your mind flood with ideas of how you want the final piece to come out. In other words, when it comes to art, it’s best to think more like a “progressive thinker” if that makes sense… Someone who thinks of concepts step by step as they go along. Of course you don’t always need this mindset (looking at myself here, being impulsive), but it can help at times and I must admit that I do struggle with ideas occasionally and end up rubbing out ALOT.
I hope this satiates you guys for a while, as I shall be going to a music festival this weekend and I shall be inactive until next week. For now, I bid you all have a good day.

Some recent artwork, as a collection…

A collection of three piece of fanart for the game League Of Legends that I have been working on. They are finally finished and the depth of shading is the key aspect as it defines important features for each character: Ziggs’ goggles, Yorrick’s hooded face and Caitlyn’s bust. This is my style, so enjoy.
