Art Samurai Homework for April 16th, 2014




This is my homework for tonight's Art Samurai workshop.

Here is the workshop description:

THEME: Anatomy: Veins!
ASSIGNMENT:  Design and draw a very muscular alien monster, but with these caveats:
  •  very little to no costume to show muscularity
  •  base the muscularity after human anatomy
  •  make this character show extreme vascularity (tons of VEINS).  This assignment  will help you identify and draw the major veins on the human body that will aid in your anatomy drawing.
  •  make sure this character is in an ACTION pose
  •  feel free to use reference!
 Be creative and have fun!

Can I consider flexing an action pose?

Image it has something to do with MineCraft.

Tornado Emojis


These are some tornadoes in various moods for Michael Cole/Salon Development Corp.
He does a talk about tornadoes and they are explained in his book, Over The Top which I illustrated.

ArtSamurai Assignment for March 5th, 2014

Revised version 
Head turns

Tom Nguyen's critique notes
Here's what I turned in to Art Samurai for last night's workshop. I learned a lot and had some laughs.
Tom Nguyen gave a lot of explanation to how and why things look the way they do and how to think about things when drawing. It was good to see other attendee's work too. If I were to draw this again it would not be the same.

I found that I need to look at women's butts more. I need to study them. It's for art sake so my wife shouldn't get upset. I made my panties all wrong! More butt, more butt! I did put more 'junk in her trunk.'

It was a great learning experience and a good reason to have an assignment and practice!

Tom Hanks


Here's a caricature I did of Tom Hanks. He's one of my favorite actors!
If it is a good caricature, maybe it will be pirated and some street caricature artist will take credit for it! We'll see...

The Joker

Here's a quick photo manipulation I created in Photoshop CS6. I took the photo with my webcam and brought it into Photoshop. I did a bit of Liquifying, color adjustments, masking, replacing the card and adding of blood! I painted in a lot of details and tried to make it look more believable. Did it pretty quick just for fun!
