THE SCARY "DARKNESS MONSTER" WASN'T EVEN THE MOST INCREDIBLE
THING THAT OUR ASTR0 PI6 HAD SEEN THAT DAY. UNFORTUNATELY, HE
WOULD HAVE TO WORK ON NAMING AND CATALOGING THE NEW SPECIES
ANOTHER TIME... THERE WAS OTHER WORK TO BE DONE. ... Super fun to do this last night. I just kinda went at it with a shape for the monster, nothing specific planned out. Very experiential and abstract and cathartic. I'm happy with the way it came out. Each of these sketches allows me to get to know the Pig better and feel out what I want for the book. ... #sketch#sketching#astropig#astr0pi6#pig#scary#cute#art#drawing#artistsoninstagram#igartists#kidsbook#practice#grind#work
Taking a moment to encourage everyone to at least follow my man @nooligan. I can't say enough about him as an artist and as an all around cool dude. He's doing about everything right from where I'm sitting and it looks like he is putting out #rumluck v2, his 2nd personal art book. I actually interviewed him, something you can watch on my youtube channel. Support this man! #iseeyouartist#art#work#grind#success
I've been doing a lot of brainstorming on Galaxy Pig, including his name which I still haven't pinned down. But I think I've got some interesting things for him. This piece is a monster I was doodling for fun, turned into a size comparison, turned into a test page. I think I would like to have text on a separate page, opposite the image. Very minimal and clean. I like the orange tho.
Learning the fundamental rules before I break them. I spent all day on this yesterday, mostly due to interruptions from kids and life. But I persevered and kept at it. I learned a ton from the anatomy step in particular. Did a lot of online referencing and consulted with my wife who is a nurse. I learned why they're called "biceps" and "triceps," how the muscles connect to the bones, where abs start and end and a bit about how the rib cage affects the abs, among other things. I'm feeling more competent and confident and a bit less like I'm faking it. Onwards and upwards! #grind#fundamentals#sketch#autodesksketchbook#sketchbookpro#digitalsketch#createdonsurface#practice#work
You may have noticed I'm not posting anything this week really. My family and I are taking our first vacation and the first time to Disneyland! I'll post art again soon.
