Drawing in the city

Did a little drawing in the city around Embarcaderro yesterday. I also found a couple other sketches I hadn't scanned yet, so I though them in as well.

Happy New Year!

Well, that was quick; another year down. I'm still trying to break free of Skyrim's siren song, so I haven't been getting much accomplished lately (Dammit Skyrim, why do you have to be so good!) I did manage to drag myself away long enough to make this Christmas gift for my friend Shasta though.

Bryan v. Illustrator

Most people that know me, know I'm not a huge fan of Illustrator. The word "hate" is usually peppered in a few times when I talk about it.

There were definitely some moments of frustration while working on this, but the end result makes me happy. Once I got a work flow down, got my palettes set up, and came to terms with Illustrator's weird way of doing some things, it's not so bad. You get those nice clean lines that only B├ęzier curves can create; being totally scalable is pretty cool as well.


For some reason I really get a kick out of turning on outline mode, which can also be pretty handy for those hard to grab shapes. It looks like a paint by number.

Gallery Girls • Steam Punk

Some new ones from the Gallery Girls event last night. I managed to get some good ones. This first one was my favorite of the evening.

Don't forget to read the rules!

I was going to enter this in the Threadess Loves Horror contest, but I realized too late that I used too many colors. I felt like I wasn't using too many, but I still had thirteen in the end; the limit is eight. I don't care though, I got a good piece out of it. I've never really drawn much blood and gore. It's actually pretty fun. It was interesting trying to decide how much was too much; where that line was. It is a picture of a zombie eating brains after all.

Should this have won, I would have to make a proper vector image out of this.I think I want to, but that also means I'll have to face my nemesis, Adobe Illustrator in a battle of wills. Who will win?

Buildings

Did a little bit of drawing in the city on Saturday. I think I need to get a couple finer pens for the more distant lines when doing these smaller drawings. It would definitely help increase the sense of depth. I like doing these smaller drawings instead of trying to fill up the page when I'm doing environments; you don't have to spend too long on a particular view.
