State of Sadness

So I’m working on two paintings. One is “A Clockwork Orange” piece  which I fixed because I had drawn it out but the body looked so stiff and fake that it was quite awful to look at. So I gessoed over it to start new and funny enough I think due to all the fanart drawing I’ve been doing, I’ve gotten better at drawing faces and bodies so the newer version of “A Clockwork Orange” looks 10 times better because Alex, the main character, looks great and not so mannequin looking.  HURRAY!

So for those who feel that doing fanart is not helping you out whatsoever. KEEP PRACTICING! it  totally helps.

The other piece I’m working on is for a series that is going to be a metaphorical take on different emotions/states that I’ve dealt with in the year. This is “State of Sadness” a lot of that has been going on this past year and its the first one that I had a clear idea of what I wanted. It is gouache on canvas. So here’s the work in progress:

iPad Sketch

So I have played around with the iPad for sketching but mostly have used Art Rage however the new updates on Sketchbook Pro are phenomenal. I would suggest the app to whoever’s looking for a good sketch app. I am extremely proud of this piece! Scarecrow. And yes he is one of my favorite Batman Villains especially to draw.

My Fortress of Awesomeness!

Last Week I decided to make my “Fortress of Awesome.” And what is that? That is transforming my room so it screams nerd and greatness instead of just letting out soft whispers. So I placed up all my prints that I have gotten at different cons, as well as set up one of my shelves as a Deadpool, Spider-man, and Hiei shelf. Such greatness! So here are some photos:

And for those huge nerds my current prized possession is my New Mutants #98 the first appearance of Deadpool that I bought from the comic book store on my shelf of GREATNESS! I feel so accomplished with that comic.

Also I’m inspired so today I decided to take a few canvases and gesso them. I use black gesso which is quite messy.  A photo of some gessoed canvases. Sanding tomorrow! Feeling Pumped!
