Acrylic on acrylic paper.  Sigh, I'm always so late when doing traditional work...I hate scanning, or alternatively, taking photos with my phone and then uploading it.  Meh, oh well.  Sorry for the crap photo, but at least I like this little painting.

Today, instead of doing any sort of digital painting, I worked all day on getting the Monkey + Seal shop up and running.  I'll post the link once it's done.  It's up! www.monkeyandseal.com/shop.html.

Note: I've added an illustration just for kicks.

This is a quick sketch that I did while at APE, day 2.  It's going to eventually be a bird with a huge egg on the beach, and the bird is going to be saying "My anus hurts."
...
...
...
And yes, I do know that birds don't push eggs out of their anus (they push it out of their cloaca).

I painted this on Saturday, but after being up for 36 hours, I decided to sleep instead of posting this.  Whoopsie.

The text reads "Hmmm, this grass tastes of the faint, nutty aroma of ass"

Comic for APE, last part!  Tomorrow is the big day, so we hope to see you there!  If you didn't know, we're totally bringing it this year with a new comic (this crappily drawn gross, offensive, weird one), a total of four shirts(!), new postcards, our prints, the ties, live painting, and a raffle!  Hells yeah.  See you there!

More cuss words in this one.  By the way, there is some waaaay more f-ed up, twisted stuff in the actual comic, but if you want to see that, you gotta stop by APE (or eventually buy it from my webstore).

Once again, comic from the new dealy I've got coming out at APE.  Viewer discretion is advised.

I've decided to post a part of my newest mini-comic I'm putting out at APE everyday leading up to the big show itself.  Here's the first part.  Also, if you're reading this with a youngster, I might suggest stop doing that, at least for this upcoming week.

Same piece from yesterday.  I jumped into using Levels to darken the composition to get the values closer to what they should be.

I then started the process of cleaning up the light/shadow edges a bit more and started on rendering the figure a bit more.  That's all I really had time for today, and I realized that I probably won't have time to keep working on this until after APE, but I'll finish it at some point!

10/10/10

Since today is 10-10-10 (!!) and is supposed to be scary or something, I've decided to start painting this little horror-inspired sketch that I did in my sketchbook.  Above is the original sketch and scan.  Notice that I have all the perspective wrong and I did the figure much larger on the bottom of the page knowing that I was going to complete this piece digitally.

In this next piece I worked out the composition, and fixed the perspective (thanks to lots of help from perspective master Eve).  Using the magic of layers in photoshop, I moved stuff around until I was happy with the placement and the feel of the piece.  I also added a little rat in the bottom, created a shoulder for the beast up front, and used the perspective tool to get the guy drawn right.

Now I turned the drawing into multiply layers and started blocking in general light/shadow patterns.  The main light source is going to be the fire in the barrel the homeless man is warming his hands on, and the other source is going to be the glow from the creature's eye and the reflected light off of the dumpster.


That's all for now, but I'll be working on this on and off, so keep checking back for more!
