I never posted this one because I forgot what the theme was... so I was waiting for someone else to post their image from this theme... still waiting. =)

God(s) of the Elements + Bonus Lemur -and- Old Western + Snow Leopard

(Above) Theme: God(s) of the Elements + Bonus Lemur

I went back to graphite for this one and spent around 2.5-3 hours on him. I added just a "hint" of color to him in Photoshop to help show the various elements (water, fire, air, nature, earth). He's a craggy old fella. :)

The "Bonus Lemur" part of it is in the "fingers." >_>

(Above) Theme: Old Western + Snow Leopard

Lunch Sketch Group (~30 minutes).

I'm not particularly pleased with the anatomy, but ah well.

Ancient Chinese Warrior Bard

Ancient Chinese Warrior-Bard with Bonus Boar

Theme: Ancient Chinese Warrior-Bard with Bonus Boar

Something about the idea of a warrior-bard playing a hammer dulcimer on horseback just... amused me.

He has a stylized mask that is supposed to vaguely resemble a boar as well (hard to tell).

Two and a half hours in graphite.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Medieval) Plague Doctor with Bonus Owl

Theme: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Medieval) Plague Doctor with Bonus Owl.

I think I went a bit heavy on the owl. >_> I also regret not pursuing the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde bit more. Ah well!

Two hours in graphite.

This happened in our lunch sketch group today.  Maybe it's all the talk about football season going on right now, or maybe i just wanted to draw bears. I put some quick color on it this evening.

Ancient Robotic Gargoyle with Bonus Chicken and Extra Bonus Cat

Theme: Ancient Robotic Gargoyle with Bonus Chicken and Extra Bonus Cat

I thought about toning this in greyscale (either with Copic markers or in Photoshop), but I instead decided to stick with the original ink rendering. I imagine there is some sort of magic (or tech?) that allows a field of energy to populate the wing areas to allow it to fly.

This was completed in about two and a half hours.

It's not terribly "ancient," I know. >_> Just imagine that it is all greened and stained copper!

Underground Firefighter with Bonus Bat

I was actually decently pleased with the lineart I had after the last session, but I had this mental image of the color palette and figured I'd slap on some quick color. Had I a bit of extra time, I'd probably nix the top portion entirely (the part with the crane and bat firefighter) and redo it to make it more dynamic.

Armored mole = awesome underground mount for firefighter bats, btw! ;)

Moving Garlic Fortress and Bonus Frog

Something about the idea of a Frog/Narwhal amused me. Sort of like those women and mermaids you see carved into the front of old ships.

50's Retro Scifi Plane + Bonus Frilled Lizard

I was finally able to use a scanner to scan my stuff, huzzah! Time to get caught up...

I admit this one is probably a bit more "lizard" than "bonus lizard," but my idea was an organic-type plane, with the frills acting as both wings as well as a stopping and maneuvering mechanism.

This stuff is SO much fun! :)

Roboninja Laserbot

and a shadow ninja.

Shadow Ninja of the Dragon Octopus

Tonight's drawing was to be a combination of a dragon, ninja, octopus, and a shadow. So we had reference of all this stuff and if I ran into any hick ups all I had to do was look up at the screen and boom! There it is! But alas looking up turned out to be a bit of a challenge so I went on what I remembered of ninjas. In my head they were not Japanese assassins, they were friggen turtles with fancy red bandanas. Dragons, piece of cake - a lizard with a cool goatee and bat wings. And a shadow? It's a friggen silhouette based on a light source. Right? Well those last two didn't appeal as much as the first ones so that's why they don't appear in my drawing.

So this is what I ended up with.

something something ninja dragon octopi


Please don't ask questions.
