Alfalfa

 

My girlfriend to this picture of me on Halloween, dressed as Alfalfa. It looks very depression era, and has very interesting light, so I gave it the old one-two.

Krampus Season!

Grüß vom Krampus! That’s German for “greetings from the Krampus!” My favorite holiday mascot is the non-denominational “Krampus,” a demon that punishes naughty children during the solstice. Originally from Austria, the Krampus has spread not only to other German speaking countries, but the world over. Thank Krampus!

To celebrate Krampus season, I have made my own Krampus design that is available for purchase at my Society6 store. What better way to ring in the holiday season than by donning the raiments of the holiday avenger?

I also show other versions of my design below the final version. Grüß vom Krampus, Freunden!

And I decided to do some washes on the original

Metropolis Art

Metropolis by Fritz Lang is a super movie. I love miniatures, cityscapes, snd robots, so it’s a natural fit.

As you might have guessed, this is ink wash, with a strong technical pen underdrawing. After completing the drawing itself, I overplayed a color layer in photoshop.

Robots Attack!

Oh no! As if Mondays aren’t bad enough!

 

I drew this robot destroying a city not really expecting much, but I’m really happy with how it came out. I used technical pens for the under drawing, and I used a wash for the shadows. I then turned up the contrast in photoshop and applied a color layer.robot destroys laser bot robot destroys robot destroys
