Progress Through Technology?

Technology has its benefits and its downfalls. In the long run is certain technology the best for human kind or should we just leave it alone?

I started with a very loose concept sketch. Originally it was going to be much more cartoony. I roughed it out in photoshop and just kept going. I was pleased with how it looks and just left it digital. Colors would be nice, as well as a BG. Hands look like crap.

Week 24

Sorry for the late post I have been in Vegas the last couple if days. If you have not been in about five years it is a complete different city thanks to technology. This weeks topic is inspired by that... I watched the blueman group for the first time and they inovate in alot of ways, creating alot of instruments and visuals. This weeks topic is "progress thru technology or automation". I want you to use your noggin and try to capture the theme what ever it means to you. I know you are all talented and I know you can come up with some cool ideas for this pretty vague topic!!! Good luck

Oh yeah if you know anyone that would make good contributions to this website spread the word!

Oh yeah times two......Greg, Andrew and Jeff please start posting again!!!!

I know i said try to use new meduims for this one but I was running out of time. I wanted to pick a monster not so cliche......i rolled with the blob but now i wished I would have done the wolfman.....I might try to sketch one out this afternoon....but this is all i got for now.

Franky's monster

Franky's monster portrait. I tried to recreate the classic in watercolor since this week's exercise includes using other mediums.

The Mummy

I based this on the Boris Karloff version of the character. The one aspect of his version that I really love is the great texture of his flesh. I wanted to capture that aspect. Colors were added in PS. Oh, and I fixed my Batman Goes Punk image. You can now enlarge the picture.

Potential Swamp Creatures

I plan on doing some digital painting with this but wanted to get some feedback on the ones that are already there and which one you think has the most potential :)

Monday, July 19, 2010


Vintage Horror Monsters......this is a throw back to the classics.....Swamp thing, draccula, Franskenstien, the fly, creature from the black lagoon, wolfman, etc.....please try to stay within the theme of Vintage monsters....if you modernize them please explain (in a comment on your post) your design choices. I would encourage you to explore different mediums and try to capture the feel for the genre monsters you are illustrating.

Have fun and encourage and inspire a friend to draw and design.

colorful heaven

This week's topic is quite a challenge for me but I imagine heaven to be a color place so here my own piece of heaven.

WEEK @@ ooopps I meant 22!

This topic is probably gonna have a part two attached to it. It was suggested by one of our participants that we do an interpretation of what Heaven would look like....this could be spiritually...metaphorically.... utopia...or puffy is all open game since we have no real reference to look thing please make it epic and in the next week or two there may be a glimpse into hell as the part two of this topic.

SO try to stray from the negative in this one there will be an opportunity to address the other side of the spectrum in the weeks to have fun and remember.....skies the limit....see you in the after life :)


I did this fast n dirty...but oh well....there is always next week and judging by the number of post not too many people were feeling this topic.

Looking for my Locus[t]

Here it is. Those with a strong internal locus of control believe their actions and choices determine the events in their life. An individuals internal locus of control helps them to be more in control of their behaviors and actions. These ideas run parallel to other beliefs in other forms. The locust is symbolic of moving forward, willing to take risks. A locust does not jump backward.
I've been focusing a lot of my attention on how I can be in control of my life the last two and a half years. It is difficult learning to re-condition my mind. This has been hard, but I am seeing progress. I am moving closer to being in control of my thoughts, my feelings and my actions. Within this process I am finding that I am more confident in myself artistically and the direction that I am heading in.

Here is my insect design.

Thursday, July 8, 2010

who let the bugs out

Genetic experiment gone horribly wrong, so what does a genetically altered super bug eat.....anything it wants!!

used a sculpted head I had, and made the bugs out of zspheres in z-brush, along with the hills in the back. Photo bashed that biohazard sign, and everything else was done in PS.

Crits are most welcome, Ill try and revise

Batman Goes Punk

Here it is. I included my process as well. I started with a rough gesture sketch. Bringing it into photoshop I refined the pose then printed it out. I then cleaned it up with my trusty blue pencil. After this I traced it onto some cardstock and inked it. I painted it in photoshop.
