Custom Clothing

Hey everyone! Thought I might start posting some images of some custom clothing I like to do. Firstly, it's been real cold lately...

Gary's got the right idea. Fluffy blankets FTW!

Anyway, here are some designs that I painted onto some clothes. These were done with Golden Acrylic paints:

Pendulum logo

Pendulum is my favorite band. They are awesome. And they also have the most complicated logo I've ever seen for a band (thus far). The reason I made this is because I've never seen any Pendulum related clothing in the states, so I was like, "why not just make it yourself?" 
To paint this logo, I cut a stencil out for it, and that took a painfully long time. But it was worth it. Pendulum's name is also painted white on the right sleeve of this jacket. 

Dead Space 2 rig

This one's design is directly taken from the official t-shirt design in the Dead Space store. I felt like it would be cheaper to paint the design onto something rather than buying it...
Unlike the Pendulum design in which a stencil was used, this one was sketched directly onto the fabric with a white charcoal pencil and then painted. Funny, this jacket was originally a Blood Brothers jacket I got at Hot Topic, but I ended up changing it and covered the Blood Brothers name with a small CEC logo. :'D
I also chose to make it low health in dedication for all the times I struggled to stay alive in the game's hard mode. :''''''D

Random Photoshop Sketchstuff

Haven't updated in a while, so here's a bunch of sketches I did in Photoshop. Why not a sketchbook? These sketches happen because I try to think of something to paint on the computer, but then nothing cool comes up or I end up sitting in front of a blank screen for hours until I get so fed up with myself that I decide to draw anything and whatever comes to mind. Here's a slice of what happens when I get hit with art block:

I love drawing gestures, so this one came up and was going to be a painting. Ended up this far. :'D But I took this opportunity to use a radial blur for the blood, just to experiment with some effects.

At first, I just drew lineart of Mewtwo, then I blacked the whole thing out to test its silhouette and kept it this way because it turned out kinda cool.

More fun, exaggerated gestures of Pokemon!

I love Okami, and drawing gestures for Ammy was very fun. I'm sure all of these poses are anatomically incorrect as I have little to no knowledge of wolf anatomy. :'D This was more of an exploration of motion and pose.

Some sketches of my friend's and my own hand from observation. Hands are always a fun challenge for me.

This one first started with Faith (on the left, Mirror's Edge character for those that aren't familiar), and it was going to be a Mirror's Edge painting, but then my mind trailed off and I started drawing the pink lolita girl on a new layer. Then the green one happened. When my mind is fresh out of ideas I end up drawing really scribbly, curvy things, mostly colorful outfits or stereotypical anime characters. I hate it when this happens, but the process of drawing such fluid and fun shapes is a good stress reliever. Sometimes the end product looks kinda cool, too I suppose.
