More Portaits

I was watching the day the Earth Stood Still, and sort of lost interest, so I decided to draw a bit. This first is a portrait of Christopher Moore, an author whose stories I really enjoy despite their complete lack of redeeming social value. The second is some random political guy. Both took about an hour and a half.


I did a few digital Sketches over the course of the summer of models, actor, writers, or whoever else I could turn up on Google Images and DA. The first two sketches are of models from DA. The third is a caricature of Steven King.

This was the next big project I did after the portraits. The alien robot guy was inspired by Ultravisitor and album by Squarepusher. If Squrepusher had asked me to design the album cover for him and I'd managed to maintain consciousness long enough to nod "yes," this is what it would have looked like. Also if you haven't heard of Squarepusher and like drum and bass (or just good music in general) I'd recommend you check him out.
I did this after reading some excerpts from Andrew Loomis's Successful Drawing. I was having a lot of trouble coming up with lighting on my own and that book was incredibly helpful. This took about 9 hours and was completely from imagination.
