Sergeant Dan and The Bat-Men of Thorium - genre change

Thanks to Peet (The artist who actually reads,) I've just realized that there is no particular genre requirement for this forum activity.  So no more scifi for Mr. Sergeant.

Sergeant Dan and The Bat-Men of Thorium - color & light block in

Pretty rough color/light studies.  Don't like how the face is coming along, so I did some facial studies afterward.  Men's faces are hard... actually men are harder to draw for me in general.  Need to look up some anatomy reference for his pose later as well.

Sergeant Dan and The Bat-Men of Thorium

For character of the week challenge on conceptart.org.  Quick lunch sketch, drawing inspiration from the image of the epic struggle between men and the turtle-kind.

Pirate Dirigible - Final

This is as far as I can take this piece before hitting the sack tonight + hopping on 7am flight tomorrow.  Not finished, but learned things, and had fun :)  I guess that's what matters most at this point.

Pirate Dirigible - wip

Chances of finishing this before the weekly acitivity deadline (Saturday) is pretty low at this point.  Gonna try to pull it off tonight on top of packing for the trip tomorrow... (right...)

Heaven vs. Hell color rough

Still needing a final painting pass... I have never managed to make anything look decent by just doing grayscale + color overlay.  I wonder if that's weird.

Heaven vs. Hell WIP

Early wip for CGHUB sketch jam: Heaven vs. Hell.  Didn't try to do anything new idea-wise.  Rather, the focus is composition, readability, and overall energy.

The raw, 30-minute sketch below has a lot of energy.  Hoping to not lose too much of it as I go on, heheh.

Sketch night - fortress in the sky

Doodles from Monday sketch night.  The boat thing is kind of fortress-ish, but I'm not sure what the other thing is...

Finally catching up with scanning

It's been a while since I last scanned my sketches...  Well, it may look like I've been busy, but I've really been pretty lazy.  Gotta get back in gear.

While scanning the Saturday animator's life drawing session sketches, I realized that the sequential, 30-second gestures look pretty cool when put in... well, sequential order.  Go figure.

Also, a nose drawing and some random doodles from Monday sketch nights.

Mystic Gunslinger - sketch

Trying to get back into doing forum topics.  This week's Character of the Week theme at conceptart.org is apparently "Mystic Gunslinger".  Focusing on the pose right now, trying to apply the really great lecture by Steven Huston earlier today.  Looking forward to the oil paint workshop tomorrow.
