Figure drawings...

I meant to keep posting my figure drawings from Wednesday nights but it's been hard to get into the photoshop lab at school around my schedule and classes that meet in there. So I figured I'd scan a few at home, although I'll update more whenever I can actually get into that lab.

Here are some 2 minute poses of last week. I have a lot more 2 minutes I want to scan when I get a chance that look a bit nicer than these eheh.

Next up, the model this week did a combo pose or what ever he wants to call it, both poses were 1 minute and it was up to us to draw it so they fit together - very cool idea.

Last, I got a little daring with a brush pen later on during the 5 minute poses. Turned out a lot better than I expected hehe.

More to come when I have time.

Designing Henchmen for The Moon

Small update for The Moon sketchbook...

I recently decided on an idea for St. Peter and the Heavenly Hosts that appear in The Moon. Disregarding the religious context that St. Peter appears in, for the story he is kind of the grumpy neighbor from upstairs that comes down to put an end to the party. So I see him as being some sort of a diabolical CEO of what ever space station or colony the story takes place in. At his side of course, are the hosts, his henchmen. Here is the first photoshop of one of the four hosts... the rest are thumbnailed, just not detailed quite yet.

This little guy is inspired partly from the fact that I just read The Hobbit over the winter break :P The painting is by no means finished, but that isn't what this project is all about. I'll update the rest when I get em.


The next Host is here! I'm having a lot of fun drawin' up these guys. I decided not to do a full render this time around since what I did with the dwarf is going to take a little bit more work to do a full line up later on.

I'm happy with where this character is going. I tried to design his body - wings included - to look like a wine glass, which could probably come across a little stronger. I was however ready to run with the 2nd drawing I did (lower left) as I think it looks more henchmen like, but exploring it more was fun.

Another. It comes across unique yet I think still fits together with the other hosts. However, this is maybe the 2nd drawing of him and that's bad! One of the wings was cut off because that was the edge of the paper and I didn't feel like photoshopping it atm. -___-
