Character re-design

This week was re-designing a Lord of The Rings character, I chose Treebeard. First are some idea sketches done straight in pen, then did the final with microns and some sepia ink and watercolor.

I was going for more of a fantasy illustration type of look, as opposed to thinking about pushing the design, but I'll definitely keep the critiques I received in mind when designing characters in the future!

'nudies' (more lifedrawings)

I don't consider this 'mature content', but i'll just say ya' better scroll fast if you can't handle a few nudes.  Here's some of my drawings from last Fridays session 
I had a little too much fun with that one.... she's some sort of dragon-guardian-empress haha.

hands and feet (totally an original title)

Just hand and feet observations.  All colored with markers, but the first one was done with traditional pen and ink, which is obnoxious but has an interesting line quality. Second one done only with only markers , and it was challenging trying to think of opaque shapes when it's really a translucent medium. Last one done with microns, as I got frustrated by the other restrictive mediums and decided to just plain out draw like I always do.

Slaying the schooling dragon...

Last weeks assignment, drawing 3 friends in the style of another artist. They dont look like themselves at all haha, but it was good fun. It's final exam time here in Australia, and its a very daunting and stressful time for everyone. The idea was of a final schooling showdown, so I guess they're belated graduation illustrations. First is Tomer Hankua's style done digitally, second is Barth Maunoury's style done with ink and marker with color changed digitally. I'll be sure to post more in the weeks to come.
