Week 16 On the Prowl

I'm doing more fanart this time but also using it for some pose and background practice. I also wanted do something with archery since it's been well over a year since my last attempt. Unfortunately,  I didn't make it very far yet. I only like his head and ended up erasing all but that after I scanned this.

The earring was inspired by a friend of mine who mentioned that through history archers have pierced their ears to improve balance/eyesight. Something to do with acupuncture I think?

Week 15: I Still Don't Know

So however ambitious I may have been on Tuesday last week it's gone for the moment. Somehow I lost interest in this one but resolved to at least finish a simplified version of it. I also started a new part time job on Monday so that may be part of it.

It's a cute little graphic if nothing else and I did need practice with this sort of thing. Maybe if the motivation ever strikes I can make a high-quality version as a t-shirt graphic.

Week 15: I Don't Know What's Going On

...and I'm okay with admitting it.

I started out wanting to try some tattoo designs to maybe sell to some local shops or websites, but then I started drawing one (which I'm not done with) and it looks more like a t-shirt graphic so far. So I dunno, I'll just roll with it.

I hate drawing roses.

Week 14

The art bug was biting hard today so I not only finished this but did several other sketches and started some concepts for Week 15, which I will post tomorrow.

I briefly considered leaving his hands white, but then it just looked like they were unfinished.

Week 14: Eagle

Upon seeing the giant-looking handgun a friend of mine said Duke should have a Desert Eagle. Guys really like those for some reason, so I figured why not. They're also relatively simply to draw as far as guns go. Plus one of his arms is cybernetic so it could handle the recoil... then again his shoulder is not. Whatever.

Week 14: Look the Other Way

Drawing another original character re-design this week, sort of as a match for last week. Maybe eventually I'll do other characters, but for now it's just Kat (last week) and Duke.

Like Kat he's not wearing his "official" outfit but what he wears under it. I also decided to emphasize his weapon of choice like I did hers (her hands). It's kinda weird drawing him from an angle where you can't see his eye patch. He looks about ten years younger.

Also that gun is way too big, good grief.
