DnD Monsters! - Art Stream Apr 28 2018
This week, I drew some classic monsters from the World's Oldest Role-playing Game! Cower before the foul horrors of the otyugh! Flee from the all-devouring bulette as it strikes unseen from below! Hide your weapons from the terrible touch of the rust monster!

These were pretty fun. I'm starting to get the hang of painting with the tablet, I think.

For the stream archive, go view here, where I talk about the origins of these monsters and some ideas for using them in games: youtu.be/OFJT9azRacY

If you want to watch me draw live, join in on my Twitch channel every Saturday at 4:00 PM PST, located at: www.twitch.tv/illogictree

Comic concepts - Eigen City Police Car
A bit of concept art from one of my comics. This is a police patrol car used by the Eigen Police Department. Specifically it's Patrol Car 9801, used by the two police characters from the comic.

One thing I didn't note on the pic itself is that the patrol car is built more for cost-efficiency than for actual practical police work - hence why there's so little room in it for detaining and transporting suspects. In this case, I decided that there's even LESS room, because (contrary to the notes on the picture) there's a technically-not-supposed-to-be-there arsenal in the back, which will play into the climax of the comic.

The car's batteries are charged by parking on designated parking spots, under which are induction coils for wireless power transfer. That's how all cars are recharged in this setting.

Comic concepts - Eigen City Buildings
Some buildings from a comic I've been working on. I was trying to work out the architectural styles embraced by two of the megacorps that run things in Eigen City, giving the two some different styles.

Argos' buildings are solid and impersonal, hiding things behind concrete facades. (Though in fact they use a light-gathering fibre optic technology so that the interiors actually get a lot of natural light.) These are a few buildings that figure into the story.

Dymanex on the other hand is the CLEARLY EVIL cyberpunk megacorp and so its buildings are pretty sinister. The HQ tower mixes crystalline angles with elements of Gothic architecture. Its exterior elements are all obsidian and dark glass, with the top projecting Dymanex' corporate logo holographically. This building is seen in a distant shot early on in the story and the corporation itself is referred to frequently.

Autobot Art Stream Apr 21 2018
Today's art stream, I went back to do something I haven't done in a long time... Design a Transformer!

I think it turned out all right.

Elf vs. Dinosaur Guy - Art Stream Apr. 14, 2018
Exactly as it says on the tin. Drawn for my art stream on Twitch, Apr. 14, 2018.

I actually went back and made a few tweaks after the stream concluded. Still can't get that kite shield right. :P

Update: Stream over, check out below for more details.

So... Decided to try setting up an art stream on Twitch.

I am planning on streaming tomorrow (Saturday February 17, 2018) at 4:00 PM Pacific Standard Time if anyone wants to stop by and watch me draw. It'll likely be semi-instructional, since I'll be having a few friends watching who want to learn some of my techniques, but I hope to have a bit of fun. n.n

My Twitch channel is located here: www.twitch.tv/illogictree

I will see about posting the stream to YouTube afterwards.

Update:
Finished the stream and uploaded the archive to YouTube. It's really, um, rough. View it here: youtu.be/-PiVk7AA_0A

Thanks for the kind comments.

I'm afraid I don't have much in the way of pointers for you, except that your main problem at this point is your lack of perspective - all your drawings look very flat and have no depth. I'm afraid I don't have any easy tips, since I learned about perspective mainly from experimentation and practice. My usual advice is to start practicing perspective with cubes and prisms, simple shapes you can later build up into more complex forms. And keep practicing, that's what's important. :) Don't give up because it's not turning out right, figure out what's wrong and find out how to fix it.

Good luck!

I heard about you from my writer contact :iconmegasxlrfan:

You're a great mecha artist. I hope to commission you in the near future about some ideas for my comic/manga titles.

Thanks for the compliment.

I should inform you that I don't have a whole lot of time to devote to artwork, so it might take a while to get anything from me. Just so you're aware.
