Here I show some 'fan art' based on various comic artists and illustrators I love. Comic books and picture books are the artwork that children are first introduced to, and we all have our favorites. My fave artists in this category are Bruce Tim, Dave McKean and Gerald Scarfe.
This week I spent most of the week making progress on commissions and developing scripts for upcoming video projects. I didn't get any sketchbook work done, which I will get back to eventually.
We did manage to get some more Maddy redesign work done. I made her a little too skinny in these sketches, but I'm getting closer to how I want her to look.
We got one commission piece done this week, a full body coloured sketch commission of Dark Wing Duck.
This was a fun commission to work on as it allowed me to play around with stretch and perspective. I'm not happy with how the hands turned out but it was a nice change from the usual pet portraits or MLP OCs I get asked to do.
Finally, the livestream was an opportunity for me to challenge myself to redraw something I drew 10 years ago when I did creature concepts for indie video game companies. This was a dragon I designed named Neethr, a concept that wasn't used. He was meant to be a red parrot dragon merged with a panther.
For the redraw, I changed the wings to bat wings and simplified the feathers and changed them to spikes and spots instead. A lot of this process was mainly simplifiying things as well as reworking his anatomy so it made more sence and was easier to read. I really wanted to make him sleak. This is an animal built for speed rather than strength.
Finally, we have a new video!
This was a rather spontanious project. I tend to work that way a lot when it comes to these projects. Some videos I'll work on for weeks, and others, like this one, can be done in just a few days. We touched on a lot of subjects I have discussed before in this one. It was a nice return to MLP.
Sorry for the short journal this week, but we've had a lot of real life stuff get in the way of productivity. Family takes priority here, but at least I got a video done for you all.
I decided to challenge myself to redraw a dragon concept I drew ten years ago. This is a dragon named Neethr, a small but fast dragon. He preys on smaller dragons, lizards and fish, prefering to hunt at night. This was a redraw of this piece;
A full body coloured sketch commission of the Disney Character; Darkwing Duck.
This was a fun challenge. And it's been a while since I have drawn any fan art content. I took the opportunity to play around with perspective, squash and stretch with this one. I'm not happy with how the hands turned out but overall I'm close to satisfied with it.
To be completely honest, Darkwing Duck was not a show I watched as a kid, but after watching some of it as an adult, I'm kicking myself for spacing on it. It wasn't by choice, it just seemed to pass me by.
