PostHeaderIcon Tuffies Revenge!

Right, so there was a Daily Sketch challenge over at Concept Art that caught my eye: create an old oak mech that had no divisions or cuts within it.  It had to be natural.  Honestly I was hard pressed to come up with something decent in terms of an idea for the actual mech, and when confronted with the limitations it just expounded on that issue.  BUT as I drew things, this idea sort of sprang into my head.  Once upon a time, in the forest where I spent the better part of my childhood, there were these awesomely cute tuffed eared black squirrels that lived in the woods. Not sure if their common name was Albert Squirrel or if they were some different kind.  Anyway, the grey squirrels had vastly out numbered them  and eventually you hardly ever saw these squirrels. So in this image, the "Tuffies" fight back! Constructing their large inconspicuous oak mech in the deep woods, they plot their revenge on the grey squirrels and eventually launch a counter attack to maintain their status in the woodland community! Hails of acorns raid down on the bewildered greys as they flee in terror at the oncoming construct of doom!

Run Greys! Run!

PostHeaderIcon The Eyes Have it

Studies I did of my eyes.  Man, trying to stay still to get these done was a nightmare.  BUT I made it! Need to do some more studies like these later.

PostHeaderIcon Survivor

Right this was part of a dream I once had where humans pretty much screwed the planet up by doing something to the atmosphere which ultimately heated up the surface and made surface living impossible.  It also altered the weather patterns drastically where there would be massive wind storms with gusts of 100mph or more. Our race wasn't wiped out, but it did thin our numbers and forced us underground.  In these complexes were small communities of no more than 35-40 people with military staff manning the facility.  The military had also gained 100% control of everything and civilians were monitored and placed on very ridged schedules to keep order.  Our eating, socializing, exercising, and any other activity we engaged in was watched over with scutinizing eyes  One thing the military did do for us was allow us to go to the surface when the weather cooperated.

At one point, all us civs were allowed to go up and see the world for a brief period of time, but the winds started to pick up and I and two others couldn't make it back inside in time.  The wind picked us up, hurling us through a valley with giant red trees flanking both sides. One of the men was flung against a tree, killing him instantly, but me and another woman fell to the ground and landed in soft sand.  We got up, noticing an old run down store not far in the distance, then we began to walk to it.  For some reason, her feet began to burn extensively, making it impossible for her to walk.  I dragged her to the building where we grabbed a bunch of gear and bundled up.

There is more to the dream, but I want to take this drawing to a comic level and actually illustrate it.  The visuals were pretty interesting!

It's actually a little ironic as I was drawing this and watching the History Channel which is having a Doomsday week.

PostHeaderIcon WIP

Current image I've been working on today.  Not too sure if anatomy is the best, there seems to be still some sort of disconnect in between his stomach and back where his spine is curving.  Still, WIP.  If anyone has advice I'd love to hear it!

PostHeaderIcon Then She Smiled

Just a little fun in Corel Painter.  I need to get back to my pen and ink though for my octopus comic.
