"Lonely" aka "Shadow and Beast" - FINISHED

It's fiiiinally done.  But hey,  I FINISHED A THING.  Even if it took about a billion years, I can be happy with that.  

I still dont have a title for this... titles are difficult.  Right now it is called "Lonely".

The painting was based off of a an un-finished concept from January 2010.  It changed quite a bit but some elements remained.  (it makes me feel a bit better about my art progression, seeing them next to each other, too)

Drakengard-Style

Trying out some paint ideas.

I've been on a huge Drakengard kick lately.  It's a very weird, very cool game with DRAGONS with crazy horns and tails.  I like it a lot. :)

I'm listening to the NieR (Drakengard's successor) soundtrack right now and trying not to cry because it is beautiful.  Seriously, go listen to it.


Sketch Pages 910 - 916


Hello!  I was in San Antonio for a while visiting my folks but I managed to find some to draw a few pages!

Sketch Pages 897-907











Rather than take twelve years to finish that illustration and delay posting these sketch pages I'm just going to do them now, illustration be damned!  These are from a zoo trip my roommate and I went on not-so-long-ago.  Woo!  Finally crawled on by page 900

Sketch Pages 885 - 896












A bunch of old sketchbook pages.  There are more waiting to be scanned, too - well over page 900!  

So I accidentally found a better way to scan stuff.  Assuming that bloggers preview isn't wigging out on me, the dragon in the second image looks MUCH better compared to the rest!  I know exactly what I changed while scanning too so from now on I will be using the same process.  Hopefully, the scans will be better quality than they usual.

Closer...

Some more work.  I'd like to have this ready to go for my 900th page!  I've already reached that goal but I'd like to finish this first.  The excitement is real!

Update 4 lyfe

more work on this guy.  I've been having a rough time working on this at all.  I add paint... delete paint... add more and delete.  

Well, here is an update that I DIDNT delete immediately, although, I did forget to save the photoshop file after I made the changes.  Just can't catch a break!

Sketch Page 884

quick paint of an ugly little dragon.  It has not been a fun past couple of weeks, I tell you what, so I just wanted to draw something quick and dirty.  Lil poo dragon!  It was funny hearing my co-worker try to call it cute when he came over to see what I was working on. hehe

Shadow and Beast update

Big Shadow beast update.  It's getting close to being done, I think.  Getting away from it for a while helped me figure out what colors I want to use.

Wow!

I haven't posted since June?  That's just sad.  I do have a decent amount of things to post soon.  So expect a large update soon.

Bit of an update

More work on the curious shadow illustration. WIP render

You know what's a really good soundtrack to listen to while painting.  Bastion!  It makes me want to paint forever.

Sketch Page 882

Work suddenly got pretty crazy so the shadow illustration is on-hold for a bit.  Here's a chubby dragon to illustrate how I feel!

Moar Illustrashen

Starting out with some flat colors to see where I want this to go.  I think I like the color scheme.  I wanted it to be playful without being over-saturated.  Hopefully it worked out!

Illustration update

I made some changes to the Shadow and Beast concept based upon suggestions. (Shadow and Beast is a tentative title name... titles are hard)  

I think this works!  Will start color soon.

Sketch Pages 880- 881

I refined the first rough black and white paint some more and then completed the other two.  Next step is to pick one and take it to final color!

This is going to be a tough decision.  I think #1 works the best, composition-wise, but there are elements of the others that I think work better.  Like I think I prefer the shadow creature from 3 more.

Do you guys have any ideas?
