Donkey Kong

     Here's a new piece for ya.  I like the composition and stuff, but I don't like how the guy turned out... I'll just try to fix him when I do the digital.  With this piece, I'm going to color it purely with digital.  We'll see how that turns out.

Tones

     With brown sketch paper you can render tones very well.  All you have to to is add highlights and shadows.  It's a whole different ball game, and I'm starting to get the hang of it.  Here are a few:
I was very pleased with the motion of the orc.

From John Carter.  He's awesome.

His name's Cletus.  Cletus McNab.

Carol, from Where the Wild Things Are.  Amazing Book.  Also an amazing movie.

It's fiery.  Hence the name.

Myths

I love mythology.  I know that some stuff is weird, but I think it's so cool that these stories and legends have been around for thousands of years.  I have this book that is an encyclopedia of monsters and creatures from different cultures around the world.  I thought it was pretty cool at first, and forgot about it.  Then recently I realized that the encyclopedia could be very useful.  So I got it out and have been sketching a lot of the different monsters, creatures, and weird hybrid animals.  It's a good creative exercise.  So here are various sketches of extremely strange and extremely cool creatures.

I think you could call this a monster.  It was a study for Life of Pi.

An elephant with a horn in its forehead and a serpentine tail... Way cooler than an plain ole oliphant.

He's evil.

A hairless wolf that tends to haunt people who travel by themselves at night.  I don't remember his name.

Kapre.  A giant hairy man who smokes a pipe.  I think he's nice.

Of course, a Griffin.

A Yeti like dude.

An Aloe.  The head of a goose and body of a seal.
An eagle with lightning coming from its eyes.


A snake thing with glowing eyes and eagle feet.

And a Werewolf.  I love Werewolves.
