My Official Art Process...

Because absolutely no one demanded it, in this post, I am giving you a sneak peek into my artistic process, or lack thereof.

Inspiration hits me from just about anywhere, but typically it comes to me while I am no where near a pencil or piece of paper.

Thankfully for modern technology, I can just whip out my cell and take a picture of whatever tickles my imagination. And then sketch my idea later.

However for this piece, I did not have that luxury. My wife and I were traveling in a car when I spotted a really cool statue in front a public library.

So when I finally got home, I jumped on the net and luckily found a picture of it. I quickly sketched out my idea.

Then I gathered some reference images for the finer details of the illustration.

I also decided to add some other details to make the concept more mine, which required more reference material.

And how many hours later, I came up with this...

Hope you all enjoyed that. I plan on doing more with the same theme so stay tuned ya'll. Thanks for reading!

A Belated Valentine...

So lately I have been getting a lot of freelance graphic design work thrown my direction, and one recent gig was a logo for a character. Considering this is a late valentine post, I think it fits, don't you?

For those of you who don't know, I have been married now for... um, years. So she will always be my perpetual valentine. However, this year, she has some nasty competition...

There is no possible way I would ever be able to afford the larger Wacom Cintiq. (Well at least, not anytime soon.) However, Wacom has decided to tease me further with a smaller, more affordable tablet. Your can read more about it here. My brother invested in one and after witnessing him use it, I was smitten.

One of these days Wacom, you shall be mine.
