Hippos, Mars, Guns, and Gays
So here is a look into my (digital) sketchbook. I had fun doing this baby hippo painting in the ArtRage program. I love ArtRage for quick sketches. It's easy to flesh out different styles.
This is a spaceship taking off. That's about it.
This actually started as a landscape photograph I snapped. I painted over it in ArtRage, changing it to a more other-worldly setting, but still relatable to what we as humans know. The train is "Mars Express" and maybe in a hundred years or so... lol, Mars will be a habitable place like this!
With all the gun violence in America I wanted to make something quick that didn't take a side. I took about 30 photos of the inside of my pocket with my cell phone. How could I possibly let those beauts go to waste? So I used one of those photos as the background of this sketch. (The pants were not purple, by the way, all though I do own purple pants.)
I wanted to do something to show my support for the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. I'm glad to see equal rights for all! If you've ever printed out a test/calibration/alignment sheet on your printer, you may recognize the pattern/colors here. I drew the people in ink on the paper then scanned it into the printer and fixed it up in Photoshop.
On a side note, I have been working on editing a timelapse video of a recent commission. I have no idea what I'm doing. Look for that in the next week or two.
