Deviating from everything technical

So I felt like my art has been stagnating because I haven't really been doing any art for just me. This is a character from League of Legends, her name is Morgana. Its rough, but like I said I am deviating from everything I normally do, going 100% painterly with only 2 layers! yikes! haha anyway I will be finishing her in my free time, probably doing other characters as well, since I am really enjoying this release.

WIP Hobos? not sure yet.

Just letting the painting take me where it wants to go, ignore the brick texture it is more of a placeholder, unless I end up liking a juxtaposition of realism and painterly ness. Right now basically i took my thummie and wanted to see what it looked like in a tonal arrangement. Its very rough, but i thought I might enjoy feedback on the tonal arrangement not necessarily the execution of edges, etc.

Lesson 1: How do you know its time you should stop painting?

When this happens. -.- haha anyway no he is not technically naked since he is not 'fully featured' but whilst I was painting his shadows before painting the detailed clothing this is what I came up with. I put him on the lineup to just see how things are totally not hooking up with each other. And I thought it was really funny. I will be going to bed now, and we will see if this peculiar mood passes.

This is showing a WIP for three characters in the starchild story. From left to right Lance, Evelynn, and Adom. There will be at least one more added to the bunch, and I will have the styles hook up more later. As for now I am working on the gestures of the two on the left, before jumping headlong into painting details.

Evelynn Concept WIP

Repost for those who arent on the crit blog. This is a wip concept of a victorian/1940s ish character for the Starchild concept. I am also trying to get myself in the groove for BFA doing steampunk. Let me know what you think. And yes, I agree that her head is too small.

Adom Character Color Comp

This is radically different from his normal colors, but I am just playing around, and wanted to know what you thought. Also note that it is not finished, these are rough colors/values just exploring different possibilities. I give a high five to anyone who can guess what movie i was watching while painting this. :)

Adom - From his beginning, came the end.

Here is the main character for my 'Starchild' idea. If you want details e-mail me. I dont want to post my IP online for peeps to steal.

Sketch 47 July 18 2010 Quick 9 More Hand Sketches

I am finding that the ones I do out of my head are much more dynamic, and when i draw from life I lose all sense of movement. -,- I am getting angry why I can't draw from life better. Guess its my fate to refer to life, but not to represent it 100%

Sketch 33 July 11 2010 Two page spread WIP

This will be page 2 and 3 a mother and her daughter are talking over breakfast. The character is just in there to compare the feel of the character against the higher level of rendering in table and props. Remember, this is a quick mock up, and  I will be moving bowls/cups around as the mother comes into the frame, etc. I also plan on adding food into the bowls and oj into the cups. I think I will keep the background simplistic for time constraints. Let me know what you think? Thusfar I have put about four hours into this, and I need to work at least 15 hours to get the credit. @.@ lol really it will be pretty cake. :) Let me know what you think :) Oh, and the mom is black and white on purpose, because I wanted to finish my value study before I went ahead and colored her. Oh, and her arm is technically going into the other frame, the page division between the two pages is dead center. The format is roughly 4"x5".

Sketch 32 July 11 2010 Book Prop Callouts

Here is one of the bowls and cup I am going to use in my upcoming book illustration, I will upload a mock up of the spread, unfortunately I don't have any of the dialog to help you make sense of what is going on. 

Sketch 31 July 11 2010 Book Mock Up

So... for my final project for my understanding DNA Class... yeah.. not so liking having 3 weeks to do 25 spreads for this children's book, two others doing the story... I am doing all the illustrations... i think I might just die lol this is my rough toss out of a cover, since the story isn't solid nor is there a title.. anyway the simplified kid drawings are because at the end of the book the little girl is drawing with crayons what her family might look like now that she understands what DNA is and how it affects how we look. They want to 'publish' the book via e-book for little kids to learn about DNA. @.@ brace yourselves for a rough couple of weeks.
