Dwarves drink Ale

Remember that sketch a started well this is how it is going thus far

 laying the basic color
 making some adjustments, I tend to draw heads a bitter smaller than they should be so fixing it on photoshop makes it easier, decided on showing more of the arm
what I am currently working on, didn't like the position of his left arm so I tweaked it and fixed started redrawing his right hand.

Still not asleep yet

What can I say I have class at 12 tomorrow no need to go to sleep early, also help I took a nap as soon as I got home so yeah my sleep schedule is weird. Still painting my image, it is closer to finish I think....

taking a break doesn't mean I'm not drawing

So I was just taking a break from the drawing you saw in my previous post (mess with some for too long you either go crazy or mess it up) I decided to draw something for fun and next thing I knew it found my next project. 

Since I haven't really haven't post my personal work you don't really know what I like drawing. I want to do fantasy illustration so you get stuff like this.

Yep still posting: Elias Island Special Projects (oops meant Ellis Island... whatever)

 Hey still alive and posting, This semester I enrolled in a special arts class that was only available this semester. The instructor is William Low a very talented painter and illustrator  you can check out his work . What makes this special is while he teaches us his techniques in both the digital and traditional media students get work on pieces based on a central subject matter. The subject is Ellis Island at the end of the semester we will have a body of work that will have its own show ( we have no idea where could be just a school show or whatever). So here was our first assignment

 First assignment was to use a reference picture he supplied and recreate the image on photoshop. I have always wanted to use photoshop but ended up getting overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles. I have learned a lot of practical tips and tricks that helped remove all the smoke and mirrors I couldn't see  This was good assignment that got me out of the shell.
