Not that much to show today, really.

Not that much to show today, really.

Random warm up sketches that didn't come out too well:

  A warm up that I might take further:

And then lastly the start of a portrait I'm trying to do of Jazz (Jasmine Wongus), who has this kind of ethereal beauty that I do not seem able to convey. I always seem to see her as a kind of steampunk elf, but this is a regular one. Also, she has an absolutely wonderful voice. And for some reason I seem to be unable to do her justice.

I don't really feel like working on it any more, so then I guess it's done. :)

Also, seems I forgot to put the finished version of the pirates in here, so I'll do that too. I literally didn't have a single more minute to work on it, and didn't feel it was finished, but submitted anyway. And to my surprise I even got me some votes.:)

There seems to be some hair. And a salamander.

Another thingy I'm doing all for myself. Just started to do this one and went with the flow without having any photo reference, so there might be "some" weird bits. Still in progress.

More updates! And personal stuff.

Another update. Did another personal piece today. I know it's probably in the "clichè" area, but again, just something I had to get out.

Then I've started on something for another challenge, Illustrated on CGHUB. Tarot cards. I thought I'd do a card I haven't done yet, since this pops up every now and then in challenges, and I go for something from the minor arcana. After I worked on it and manage to pin the start of my idea yesterday, I suddenly remember that I have indeed done the Queen of Wands before, it was actually the first tarot card I did, with Medusa as the queen. Guess the card is strong for me. ;)

Then a random non-important warm up, just to show I don't go straight for details... :P

And lastly, I started to do angels for the 2D drawing jam at CGHUB, the idea being that they had to be the best illusionists ever to get the standing they have today, but I think I'm just ending up with magicians with angel wings bought at the nearest supermarket....

Words... Cats and oracles... and pirates. The sky kind.

This is a piece I worked on this evening, personal. I don't think I'll do anything more about it, I just needed to get things out of my system.

This ended up being my final on the oracle piece in CharacterFORGE.

And this is what I've got so far on the next CFORGE challenge, Sky Pirates. Quiiiiite a long way to go yet...

Oracle finished soon I hope.

I was of a mind to start all over again, but with a couple of other projects and not that much time to do anything at all, I tried to go sepia-ish/ old photo and it least get what looks like a finished piece before the deadline.

Anything glaring at you as being "WRONG!" please tell before the 5th. :)
