  • Inktober 2016 Complete

    I hope you’ve had the time to follow my progress over this year’s Inktober. I feel like I’ve gotten more comfortable with both digital sketching and real life inking.

  • Doodler’s Anonymous – My Side Kick

    Tom Bihn is giving away a pretty neat looking travel backpack through Doodler’s Anonymous. Since I’m drawing every day for Inktober, I figured I’d create one bird for two projects. Doodlers Anonymous has asked for a side kick for The Hero’s Journey. This would be my sidekick; a giant ride-able bird. Fun Fact: Drawn in […]

  • Sketchbook: Best of Week 04.09.16

    This week’s best of is one of the foxes. I liked this one because of the interesting pose and the simplistic line work. I’d have liked to post more this week but I’ve been working on finishing up some portions of some larger design projects and a digital painting. If you want to see what […]

  • Drawing the Dead

    There is always an out pour of sketches, drawings, and paintings when a public figure newly passes away.

  • Sketchbook: Best of Week 28.08.16

    This week I had a few successes and I had a few duds. This was a practice after Otto Greiner’s own. If I could go back, I’d fix the proportions surrounding the shoulder on our right. I chose this for best of the week because it was difficult and I feel like I’d learned a […]
