(semi)Weekly art wrap-up, weeks #5 and #6

I suppose it would be boring if I were predictable and remembered to update these every week.. right?  I’m just going to let the links and preview pics do the work here tonight – I’ve got work left to do on a few projects right now.  One of those projects may or may not include Badges.  Shhhh.

Weekly Art Wrap-up, Weeks #3 and 4

Uhm, so I managed to forget this not once, but twice.  I’ve had a bit on my mind these past few weeks.  Time to play catch up!

 

Both weeks have some WIP days as I work towards a ‘big’ picture for the week.  Week 3 focused on Star-Lord’s 40th anniversary, spilling into week 4 which is also full of Dragon Age as I finally finished Inquisition and the Trespasser DLC.  Also a few different painty experiments and new brush testing mixed in for funsies.

Weekly Art Round-up #2

This was pretty much what I’d call a restless art week, where nothing really fell together. I felt like I  was kind of all over the place while not really going anywhere.   There was one big exception though – Wednesday I posted a birthday present for Mr. Ammo featuring Arnas from Nights of Azure.   The rest of the week was experimentation and sketching.

Thursday was spent working on a wip of a pic inspired by the final battle from The Force Awakens but.. it’s been out for nearly a month and shouldn’t be spoilery by now!

I ended the week happier than I started, and I’m hoping this coming week will be even better.

Weekly Doodle Round-up #1

I’ve mentioned a few times that I post daily doodles.  They all go to my Tumblr and occasionally my Twitter, but I haven’t thought a lot about putting them here until .. well, just recently.  Instead of daily (which I would probably get tired of in a hurry), I’m going to try a weekly format.  The current plan is to post these on Saturday, so the pics will be the week ending on Friday – except for this first edition which gets an extra day because.. Happy New Year!

 

I haven’t quite worked out the best way to do this, so I’m starting out with a graphic and links to the posts.  My main reasons for this project are:

  • Getting in the habit of using this blog more frequently, and hopefully writing more.
  • Better tracking of my doodles for personal reference.
  • Continue to share my artsy efforts, experiments, and struggles.

Let’s get to it!

There might have been a theme.

Yep.  Still in the Star Wars zone.

Most of this week was spent working on something that I can’t post for a few days, so almost all of the doodles were quick warm ups.  I picked up a new brush to try out, and it’s now been added into my Manga Studio sketching arsenal.

Speaking of brushes, almost all of my MS brushes come from Frenden, and he just released a big update to his MS brush packs this week.  I highly recommend them – I use the ink ones a lot.   So on that note … I’m off to do some updating and sketching!
