Don't ask me why Luigi's leg is up. Maybe he doesn't know he's doing it? Maybe he's about to kick the floor? Maybe it's a habit? Incase you don't notice (My lil bro didn't), Mario's holding a Wiimote. (I can't be the only one who calls it that, right? Right...?)
Poor Mario looks bored. Or tired. I like to sink into my chair like he has.
By the way, I got the house colors from their house in Paper Mario.
I tried to do better at shading this time. Did I? I know I got lazy on the BG. Hope you like this picture as much as I enjoyed drawing it!
Heres my new drawing! Im really happy with how this turned out, its supposed to be of the singer Rihanna. You can look her up yourself if you dont know who she is. I thought it would be a bit of a challenge for me. I like how the hair turned out. I know the shirt doesnt look that great. I hope you like it
Ok is that all he draws is eyes? No, but it seems like it this is the start of a new WIP, there are two eyes in it, my son Eans eye he is thirteen and eye of a old woman a Czech artist by the name of Kapka Belton. Both are old souls and very amazing people, this drawing is not so much about age but of an astuteness that goes beyond one lifetime a continuum of learning to be a great human.
The completed drawing is called New Moon, Old Souls this I the first element.
This part is 9 x 9 the complete drawing is 30 x 40
This is the final product of a little bug that went "Sophia Bush looks like Wendy Testaburger from South Park!" As Sophia Bush portrayed a psycho vegan activist in "John Tucker Must Die" and Hilarie Burton and Sophia Bush had their shares of good times and bad times in "One Tree Hill", I figured it'd only be fitting if they portrayed Bebe and Wendy from South Park.
Using Photoshop and a combination of Google Image Search and Victoria's Secret, these live-action characters have come to life.
If I find anyone that looks like any other SP characters, this just might turn into a series o_o
Please note this is my first Photoshop attempt at a big photomanip, so I know it's not the best effort ever nor is it the most convincing. I'm just proud that one of my little weekend projects actually came true
Initial sketch: Pacer in diary, inked with a Shichihata 0.1 Colouring: Photoshop 6.0. Roughly 35 layers Tweaking: Photoshop 6.0. Went through about five different versions and random saves. Pet-peeves: His nose/mouth/chin pissed me off eternally until I finally got it looking alright. Position of hand/blade is a bit iffy too, but by that stage I was more interested in finally finishing it. Fav part: The Sharingan eye.. and blood~ xD
 subtle tweaking on part of Cazandra's comment. 's brobably not much better though. I'll have to work on it some more tomorrow.
[edit 2] Tried to fix his nose thanks to Telophase's comments. Hopefully he looks better now~
[edit 3] Holy shibby fantabulousness, it won! Booya~ I got to shake Marc Silvestri's hand . Teh cool.
Hell, I said I'd upload this after the Supanova con to keep it as a surprise, but I'm an impatient bugger. And the con is a good three weeks away, and... Arggggg~! This took a long time. I started it at around 8pm on Wednesday, stayed up 'till 2am colouring it. Worked on it for pretty much the whole of Thursday, and have spent intermittent parts of the weekend tweaking it. And it's finally finished! (hopefully) Rarrr~! After, what, 20+ hours of continual work. The background was a photo I ended up completely re-painting because it was so small and the quality was craptastic. The bamboo silhouettes are a bunch of guassian blurs, really. It's been sized down quite a bit from the original as well, which was about 2500x3250. I even drew his eyelashes
Anyway. This is the picture I plan to do a luverly A3 print of after the Easter public holidays and send in for the Supanova fanart competition. It's Anbu!Sasuke in all his blood-spattered glory. Because, you know, drawing those masks is a pain in the ass. Not really, but I only thought of that detail afterwards. I was going to do some other pictures, but to be honest I don't have the time to slave over more than one for 20+ hours. And unlike Animania, I don't think I can sell prints. Despite the agonising and sleep-depriving hours I spent on this, I really do like it very much. It isn't perfect, and the proportions of his face irk me ever so slightly. But... but it's finally finished! *_* And it doesn't look half-assed! And.. I might actually win something. Maybe. Although now I'm confused as to whether I should enter it in the Anime/Manga section, or teh Comic/Other. It's like manga realism, or something. Ugh... anyway.
As for why it's Anbu!Sasuke. I really don't know. I was doodling him in my diary and had the idea for drawing him from the back with his curse-seal showing (He finally appeared in the manga with his level 2 Curse Seal!! But, damn it, he buggered off without letting us see what he looked like >.> ...), but I couldn't draw him with a shirt on to have it show properly (not that I would complain overtly at that prospect). But then it looked kind of absurd because it was kind of out-of-character, and then I got the Anbu idea. Sasuke would have pretty sloppy team-work though, so I can't imagine him being a particularly good Anbu member. But yeah... Anbu is like ninja romanticism. It just looks really cool.
You can tell it's the easter chocolate and sleep-deprivation talking when I rant on for three paragraphs and, despite my best efforts, have not spelt 'the' properly once.
I read a little bit about Charlize while doing the drawings of her, and she's a woman to be admired...she didn't have the glamorous Hollywood upbringing and the leg-up into showbiz that many other big names were fortunate to get, in-fact she had a pretty rough childhood...so she's a tough one...and I like that!
Anyway this is my second entry to =JurgenDoe's contest. My first entry is here [link]
Yes, I'm on a Constantine kick, again! I seriously love that movie... I can watch it over and over and not get tired of it. I think it's the whole 'connection with my characters' thing. It's perfect. Keanu is love, I don't care what you say.
I love this part of the movie. It's where Balthazar says "Johnny boy..." and John turns around real slow to glare at him.
: D -face melts off-
Waaarghhh! I'm so proud of this one ;3; Anyone recognise the scene? ;D Sleeping Beauty lolol.
I got the colours from my Sleeping Beauty picture book >___>;
Figures; the only time the colours come out all pretty is when I don't choose them XD Aw well.
And I couldnt resist making Chouji, Lee and Sasuke little fairies o3o Dont they just look adorable!?
"I haven't lost anything. Not my friends nor my pride as a wolf. I haven't lost a thing!"
>> TIMELAPSE << Remade and remastered version of this:
Many things changed. in "pride of the wolf" I used Photoshop CS3 as a program and Trust as tablet and I used less time with that one. I just feel like I have gained alot in these two years. Focus, knowledge, patient... and with this fanart I think I start watching Wolf's Rain again. That is one legendary anime, that is. And here is something about the plot of it:
"In some distant future, it's common knowledge that all wolves have been extinct for 200 years. However, it seems this is false as wolves have not disappeared but rather have taken human form. Kiba, a lone wolf, wanders into a city, trying to sniff out the Lunar Flowers that are supposed to lead whoever follows the scent to paradise. The source of the smell is Cheza, a girl who sleeps in what appears to be suspended animation in a lab. She and the wolves are drawn to each other, and Kiba hopes to find paradise once he finds the source of the scent of Lunar Flowers. However, once Kiba finds Cheza, she is kidnapped by a mysterious person called Darcia, and his search begins anew. Before he leaves the city, he meets 3 other wolves, Tsume, Hige and Toboe. All four wolves have very different personalities and ideas, and their friendliness towards each other is a little rough around the edges. However, they soon band together to continue to search for paradise."
I'm not sure if you like to see this kind of boring studies (I actually have fun doing them) so yeah I'm kind of away from DeviantArt, but I'm still here. I feel like training for something bigger, I took a lot of time from personal art to focus on drawing, thats why I'm not uploading much... Photo reference here: browse.deviantart.com/art/WOLF... Hope you dont faint because of boredom
It's been a while since tackling yet another poster for Marvel's Avengers movie. With the individual films coming together, also coming along are official images. And I've taken the liberty of assembling them into a banner.

I'll only be selling these as premades for now. I'm not taking custom commissions at the moment. ------ This baby's head and paws are casted in resin from an original sculpture, painted with acrylics and sealed with matt varnish for a better durability. Body is hand sewn polar fleece and a beautiful pastel rainbow faux fur , filled with soft stuffing fiber and sand to give him weight and a good balance.
This one is semi armatured. This means it have an armature inside from the head to tail tip so the spine can be bent in any direction. But please, note that the legs aren't. I used a plastic ball and socket armature on this doll. This kind of armature is specially made for poseable dolls and won't break as wire may do.
Yep, as you may have noticed (or not), this one looks very much like my oekaki "Bird of Prey". And that's because that oekaki was inspired by this drawing (used the same reference for both of course).
Did this as some kind of practice with my paint. Mixed my watercolors with black and white acrylic paint, which gave a really nice result. You can't really see the white paint that well though, because the evil scanner made the paper look white too, while that's actually a bit more yellowish. Ah well.
This one also doesn't look really finished. But I like it like this. Your paper doesn't have to be filled entirely for your drawing to be finished eh. =3
(Sorry, hate to be crass, but people keep missing the bit in the comments where I explain where to get them.) They are not available through DA, but through Red Wombat Studio, at: [link]
This? This is my life. I am that pig. My life is patently absurd, improbable, illogical and aerodynamically unlikely--but occasionally glorious nonetheless.
Also, I just finished the fourth Dragonbreath book (Lair of the Bat Monster! Coming February 2011!) and I always go through a crash after finishing the book and start going "I have not done a Real Painting for ages, I am a lazy hack, all I'm good for is little cartoons of dragons and wombats..." and then I have to do a detailed painting or I'm no good for anything.
Occasionally German chocolate cake can stand in for the painting, but not this time.

Just another small quicky for Anthrocon. 8 x 10, mixed media. I do this thing every year--I see the big Con art shows on the horizon, I clutch my skull, and I go "What do I paint? What will people buy?" Yes, I do go "What will people buy?" I know, I know, artists are supposed to operate unsullied by such commercial considerations, subject only to the whim of the muse. And indeed, some of them do. Those of us who like regular meals, however, ask ourselves "What will people buy?"
"Foxes!" I think. "Wolves! Big cats! Horses!" And all of this is true. And I reach for the sketchbook, and stare at it for five minutes blankly, and then when next I come to, the page has wombats dressed like the guy from "Clockwork Orange" and small cute hadrosaurs having tea.
Hey, I just said I ASKED myself what people will buy. I didn't say I ever got around to painting it.
Prints are available for $10 plus shipping, original will be going to Anthrocon, and will be for sale if it returns unsold. Send a note or visit [link] for print orders!
A quick character design of an amorous raptor. I based this troodontid's anatomy on a roadrunner, frigate bird, and peacock, What a romantic. Isn't sexual selection wonderful ? please enjoy this goofy fellow.
