Process Log 15: Destroy Them With...Centipede

I forgot to post the WIP shots I captured while painting this. It's not much, but just thought I'd share it. :'D

Final Image

Things I learned from painting this:
- Experimenting with dual brushes and overall painting with different brush types. (Noticeable in the kicked up "dust" around the centipede).
- Leading the eye (I originally had the sun on the left side of the painting, but I wanted KP and Snare to be the first thing you see in this painting then the stick dudes, so I moved the sun behind them to make them stand out.)
- Having fun with the concept and not worrying about adding simple stick people. :'D

Super Odinson Bros. N Moar Arts

Some more arts! These were posted on my DeviantArt account first, but I figured I could post them here, too.

My latest obsession: The Avengers and Thor movies mixed with Super Mario Bros. I thought about painting a Thor and Loki pic for the longest time but no good idea came up until I compared their colors with the Mario bros. When I found more similarities between the two pairs, I was immediately inspired and set off to paint this picture. Now I can't stop thinking about painting more Super Odinson Bros. :'''''D More may be posted later, both on this site and my dA gallery.

After watching the 10th episode of The Legend of Korra, I was freaking out on facebook about how awesome the latest episode was. My status looked like: "LoK. WUTWUTWUTWUTWUWUTWUTAEUFLDUSHFLADUFHSA". A friend joked about it being a new dubstep song, and another friend mentioned "DIRTY BASS BENDER". And so, Chaz the Bassbender was born.
He's a DJ but also an Airbender with an upgraded ability to manipulate sound waves. He doesn't use too much of his power when he DJs, only to add a little extra punch to the drops. :'D
I was planning on creating a character sheet for him - just for kicks.

And finally a quick teaser painting for my story "MOTH". After some practice with portraits (in the last  blog post) I wanted to apply it to Photoshop, and so this was the end result. It's the main character, Ryan, looking all thoughtful and stuff.
MOTH is still underway - just drawing more still-frames of important plot points.

More arts to be posted soon :D

Booksketch Stuffsketch

While Photoshop is currently MIA, I've been taking the time to do some observational studies and other random art things.

Movies have been a big thing this summer, and I'm currently obsessing over The Avengers. :'D Snow White and the Huntsman was also a fantastic movie, as well as Prometheus. MIB 3 was pretty good - it was a cute story, I left the theater with a smile.

Then there were other times when I got reaaaaally bored and I would go to Barnes & Nobles and attempt to draw people or sit on the floor at home and sketch the furniture. The hand sketches were actually done about 3 months ago, on the flight to GDC.

And finally, some word art, because I like to make graffiti/graphic looking things with marker every now and then. All of these except the top right were completed 3 months ago at GDC; the top right was done several weeks ago, yet on another flight to see a friend. The design of the words were inspired off of what I envisioned and felt listening to these specific songs:

Tourniquet - Knife Party
Crush - Pendulum
Watercolour - Pendulum
Lights (Bassnectar remix) - Ellie Goulding
