Pop by a Wood Chipper

I was going to document this step by step, but I was so enthusiastic about drawing my dad with the Fez I got him for Xmas that I forgot to document each step properly. I may go back and play with this image further, but for now it’s done. This is an ink wash and brush pen team-up with a little photoshop color tint.

Turnips, Artichokes, and Leeks

In an ongoing series of foods and cooking, I’ve drawn some of my favorite veggies.

I started with a few concept rough drawings:

Then I moved on to pencils (not pictured) and inks:

Finally I added a wash and in photoshop, a greenish tint:

I’ve also made a meat chart:

Double Indemnity

One of my favorites movies is Double Indemnity, which I first saw as a dumbass 18-year-old. Dumbass or not, I was able to appreciate the beautiful compositions and noir lighting.Recently, I watched this on a projector and I was able to take some very crisp reference photos. Here’s a process series!

Astronaut in Steps

Since I’v been drawing so many astronauts and astroscapes, I thought I’d throw back the curtain a little and explain my process. I have skipped the penciling stage in this post, but, faithful readers, if you would like to see that stage, I’d be happy to oblige.

I had originally applied a wash directly to this piece, but I took it out when I decided to apply a wash digitally. astronaut

Here’s the astronaut sans wash.

This is the wash that I did on a separate piece of bristol. Once it dried, I used a brush to splatter white ink over it to resemble stars.

I touched up some of the shadows on the astronaut. I also tool parts of another wash to create the “depressurizing bolt” emitted from the astronaut’s cracked helmet. In the future, I’d like to ad another tone to the astronaut’s body, and maybe add some planets. dying astronaut
