Orange Vulture

More birds, you say? Yes, I thought I’d continue to practice midtowns and halftone dots with out carrion eating friend here. Apologies for the short post, gentle reader, but it’s been a long week.

Self Portraits

When my mom sent me a Panettone, I did not realize that it would make me look so regal. You see, this Panettone came in a wooden crown type of  container, and my fiancee took a fine picture of me wearing my new headgear.

As you might expect, I used this opportunity to draw myself in many different styles. I used ink wash, digital colors in Photoshop and Illustrator, and just plain brush strokes.

More Pickelhauben

A lot’s been going on: I’m working on multiple comics, writing copy, and trying to learn new illustration software.

To keep me grounded in these turbulent times, I go to my comfort zone: hats and helmets!

I found a great reference picture for these and decided that I’d use a wash on one and just use value on the other.
