Some drawings I did without the use of a computer. It was weird, because it seems like I am kind of out of practice with a pencil! My paintings in photoshop keep getting better, but the drawing with traditional media might be regressing. I've got to practice with my sketchbook more often.

Doodie doodly doodle.

I've been working on finishing that The Darkness fan-arty thing, but I had to take a break to do this little doodle of my favorite plant in Plants vs. Zombies.  I only like it because it's cute. I don't own any rights to this game. Or else I would not be a broke college student...

Birthday gift!

I made this for my boyfriend while on skype with a few friends the other night. My boyfriend is a huge fan of The Binding of Isaac. Click to make it larger!

Art Dump

I've been MIA for awhile concerning this blog, mostly because I have had a lot of work to do for graduation. Here's an art dump of what I've been doing. Some of it is actually (GASP) 3D, which I hardly ever do.


I've got a few more paintings but unfortunately they are all part of projects that have not gone far enough in production to allow me to post the work freely yet! It's some really fun stuff so I can't wait to post it. 

All the rocks and plants that you see with my models were made by my friend, Matt Dulemba. I'll link his blog here once I get the url for it. Also, that dino (if you didn't read the text with the image) is from turbosquid. I just got it to showcase my ability to paint textures :)

I am alive!

Some newer stuff, mostly just silly things. I'm working on a couple of big projects right now so sometime in the (hopefully near) future I'll get to post them. For now, here's some stuff I did for fun.

I played The Darkness 2 recently and it was really fun despite having some serious sexism issues that almost ruined the game for me. I thought I'd do a fan art thing of me with the darkness:

Still WIP, but I'm sure it'll get finished someday if I ever manage to get through this quarter in one piece at school.

ALSO, a couple of sketches and a repaint of that dumb couch you've seen twice already. Just wanted to see if I could make it better while using it for another project.

And here I dump some old drawings

Some old concepts that I did for a game I worked on in school called Olive. None of these ended up being used, but some elements of their design were incorporated into our final creature concepts. If you've seen the deer creature I posted previously, the branch antlers and leaf tail were frankensteined together to create it. 

 BONUS HORSE (not part of Olive hahaha):

I decided to try and paint Charlize Theron, and I guess it turned out okay? I was trying a bit of a different style, and this was the result. Doesn't really look like her hahahaa

I have repainted Fina, the fire chicken. I planned on using this in my portfolio, so I felt I should redo it to reflect my improved painting skills.

A couch

I redid (again) another old painting from ages ago. I'm really stumped when it comes to giving simple backgrounds to concepts, which sounds really silly.  I found a nice wallpaper texture on cgtextures and added it under all of my other layers, and that seemed to do the trick.

A cuddly monster.

I redid an old painting. You can probably find the old one on this blog by scrolling down to the older posts. I did the original in September.

Humphrey Bogart!

I really adore Humphrey Bogart. I truly believe he was ahead of his time, and he's the star of my favorite movie of all time (Casablanca). This painting is reproduced from a photo reference. I wanted to practice painting people for a change, and who better to paint than Mr. Bogart's lovely, expressive face?

My painting:

The awesome original photo:

A few sketches

Here's some stuff I cobbled together that I found on my computer. I have a ton more, and I figured since this was an ART BLOG and all I may as well post them.

Also, it seems that my super girly dragons/horses obsession is showing. I've been drawing horses since I was a kid, and my love for horses is probably the reason I started in the first place. Even back when I was younger I was studying horse anatomy from books so I could get better. I was also pretty much competing with this other horse-obsessed girl I went to school with, because I thought she was better than me and I COULD NOT HAVE THAT. I hope it shows, or else that could be embarrassing.

Lastly - two of the dragon drawings here have become full blown paintings, one that I've posted already and one that will be posted soon.
