the bloody tears she cries

i loved making the hair on her!!! this is my little tears of blood girl. this is just the first stage of her....this part took me im gonna say at the most 40 minutes. i did make adjustments, i just havent taken a picture of them yet. for example, there is a gold frame around her, though im going to redo it, and i changed the background to a green and burgundy pinstripe wallpaper.

some random people sketches

m. shadows from avenged sevenfold...yes, he did have a squinty eye in the picture i drew it from. lol

Rain Illustration

New Stuff

so, here's what i've been working on this summer.

this first one is done with acrylics on illustration board. the inspiration came from a piece i did before with similar demons in the background. i dont really have a back story for the concept or anything, just that the umbrella is shielding the girl from the evils of the world i guess. for some reason my camera has been making pictures look greenish lately, so for both the pictues on here, they are not true. eventually i will scan them or borrow someone else's camera to make these look better, cause this thing just isn't doing them justice.

this next one i was inspired to do when i went into a comic book store at the moorestown mall. as i was looking at all of them i realized, hey i could make a comic book if i wanted! then i had to figure out what it would be about, and since i'm already writing a book with an interesting storyline i thought why not make one on that. so if i ever actually get the patience to sit down and work on a comic book, this image when its finished would be my cover. right now i've started on the main character, Autumn Blue. she ventures off into the woods and finds herself in a world thats like a screwed up Alice in Wonderland, with wolf beasts, demons, psychopaths, and witches.
this is also acrylics on illustration board, but i used a different method which i really like. i did i full value pencil sketch and applied transparent layers of acrylic over top. i like the results so far, and its pretty fast to do.

My First Blog!!

so i am new to here's my first blog! i think for this one i am going to post an entry that i tried entering in the society of illustrators last semester at school, which unfortunately was denied. no worries though, always next year.
so a little bit about the piece:
this was done for a project my teacher gave the class simply entitled "phobias". each student had to pick a phobia from a list and provide an illustration for it. i came across dendrophobia, which is the fear of trees. funny right? so, i made it my mission for this project to make trees look like a legit fear, and i think i succeeded in that. the piece is done in the style of arthur rackham (if you don't know his work do yourself a favor and look him up right now. his stuff is amazing.), using watercolors and a sepia pen. hope you like it!
