Cartoon dog doodle... Part of a tutorial on how to create digital cartoon characters:…
Making of: Pumpkin cat!
Here is my beginning video of how to draw and paint cartoon characters in Photoshop. This is a time-lapse video of the real time narrated tutorial that can be found here:
Also, check out the rest of my Gumroad page for tore tutorials and brushes!
Bray Road Beast.
Here is some concept art that I did for my work in this movie :
I did some documentary style animatics, as well as some VFX creature shots in this. Fun!
Happy October- !
Just finished up a newer version of my pumpkin cat character... Youtube video of this being created:
Old art revisited...
Started noodling on an old painting from long ago... Might do more.. Might not. 
So.... I did a new piece of art of an old subject: a dragon. Did my usual thing; screen recorded it (for future tutorial creation) and then time-lapsed it... Then posted it on Facebook, and at the same time, youtube. This was 3 days ago. As of this post, it has been viewed over 71,000 times on Facebook (shared over 1700 times) yet, on youtube it hasn't even broke 1000 views. I'm relieved and perplexed at the same time. Relieved, because up until this moment, I really was wondering if perception of my artwork was going downhill (as I have seen so many newer channels with 6 digit view counts, and I usually can't go much higher than 400). So I thought I would try going back to doing a dragon (my most popular subject when my YT channel was booming). I posted it on FB thinking it would do okay, and was mostly focused on trying to get my YT presence back up there. 

Well... Ultimately, the reverse happened. Which is actually really good. Because now I don't feel so bad about whether or not it is my art-- clearly, it is an algorithm thing, or something. I suppose it could also be the trend of content I have been putting on YT in the last 5 or 6 years. Kind of wandered farther away from this tyoe of art gradually each time by posting a wide swath of "other" work... And snippets only, too. Perhaps I just need to upload one painting a week of this subject and caliber. We'll see. I shall continue on!

Hey there! :la:

Nice art :wow:  If you're ever looking to share your work with other people, live, you should check out #ThumbHub on dAmn (Did you know we had a chat system!? A lot of people don't :( ) We get a lot of great artists popping in to share their work and it varies from Traditional art, to photography, to poetry :) Also a great place to gain more exposure for your art AND to make some new friends xx

Hope to see you there some time :heart:
