Here is some of the sketches from yesterday in Austin. There is alot of warm up stuff because I haven't really had the chance to do alot of live drawing lately. It just felt good to play around.
And here is some of the layouts I'm playing with for the cover for Dead Enders 0.
Finished my second piece for the 405th and sent it in. My best wishes go out to Kensai111 who is my editor and super sick. I hope he feels better soon.
They got me working on another illustration. Seems that Bungie has linked to the site because a bunch of vetrans of the 405th sent them a goody box of props and helmets. So, this means that more people will be visiting and checking out the forums. I hope that my artwork does the site justice.
Feeling very inspired lately though. Started the next peice on Photoshop. No sketching scanned in. Not going for as much as a comic book look this time. Did take some reference pictures of myself for the pose. And you never really realize how difficult drawing a UNSC marine can be until you have to pick which armor to use. Sooo many out there to pick from. And you have to be careful based on what time period in the Halo Universe you are portraying.
Just finished and uploaded my first peice for the 405th. Went with a comic book look. Has heavy black lines and such. I'll post it after it's been published in the e-zine.
Just got back from Hawai'i this morning. Used to live there seven years ago. Went back and did the haole thing for my brother's graduation gift. Stayed on Waikiki for once. Visited old family friends.
I'm now a member of the source for the 405th. I'll be making artwork for the various articles that find their home in the e-zine. I'm super excited, but hate the fact that I can't really start untill I get back from vacation. Boo.
I can't believe we did it. Kat and I finished our armor and got to enter it in the cosplay walk-on contest. And we won 2nd place! I love it. We walked on stage, did two poses, then took off our helmets and the crowd freaked. Oh no! Two girls in Halo armor! I had so much fun this weekend. My body is stiff from how I had to walk. Not very easy by the way, to walk in armor, especially down stairs or across a busy street.
