I did something quick near the end of the day today and figured i'd post it. I was just trying out some new brush techniques (new to me at least)...(or out of my comfort zone rather) and ended up with this:
This was a sketch done for a friend. He's putting together a sketchbook that he is going to sell and donate the proceeds to a community that does stuff for autistic children. It should be at the san diego comic con this year. This was my donation:
Came home from work tonight and still felt like painting more. I found out that one of my favorite concept guys, Sparth has a sketchbook over at conceptart.org with a lot of cool tricks, so i tried a few out in the process of creating this piece
Update: A Random quick environment, i'm just trying out a tool i never use, the warp tool, to get those lines stretched around the fungus like plants in the below painting.
Also i want to give credit on the warp tool idea to Levi Hopkins, a concept artist on Guildwars 2. I asked him over at his blog how he was stretching brushes and he was nice enough to tell me he was using the warp tool. Definitely check out his blog, there's some amazing work over there:http://levihopkinsart.blogspot.com/
