Everyday 017 – (Fail / Flashback)

Despite making two different versions of today’s drawing (both portraits of a woman), I felt I wasn’t able to make something worth sharing publicly, let alone list for sale. I hoped I wouldn’t have any days like this, but committing myself to a complete drawing everyday is a challenge, and on this day, I simply…

Super Mutant vs. Power Armor (Ink)

I was pretty disappointed with how my inking turned out on a couple other recent drawings (like the Cyber Demon), and so I was determined to be more disciplined and deliberate on this Fallout 4-themed drawing. I’m much happier with how this one turned out. This was completed with a pair of brushes, India ink,…

Underground (Ink)

As I mentioned in my post on the pencil version of this drawing, I was still rusty working on this one (it was one of the few drawings I’d done on paper in many years), and that extended to the inking phase. Things got a little rough in spots and there are clearly some indecisive…

Cyber Demon (Ink)

As I mentioned in the pencil art version of this drawing, I really wanted to create an interesting shape for this figure that could be a compelling and identifiable silhouette. I was looking forward to doing the ink because I knew it would help the figure push against the negative space around it, and I’m mostly…

Death by Pancakes (Pencil)

This is a t-shirt design commissioned by Champs Diner in Brooklyn. (They have an amazing menu of vegan food at their main location as well as at their Screamers and Hartbreakers restaurants). Their mascot is a grim reaper with pancakes, and that was my only real guideline for this piece. (Oh, and they needed to…

Super Mutant vs. Power Armor (Pencil)

After I worked my way through a few warm-ups for my new portfolio (like my Underground drawing), I decided to push myself and take on a more challenging piece. I’d been playing Fallout 4 for the nth time and Fallout 76’s release date was coming up, so I decided to create some fan art for…

Cyber Demon (Pencil)

Earlier this year, I created a piece of cover art for my Cyberpunk Synthwave playlist on Spotify. At the time, I was completely out of practice drawing and I attempted to make the art in Photoshop, which really limits me, both technically and creatively. The end result was serviceable, but I was never excited about…

Underground (Pencil)

This was one of the first serious drawings I’d done on paper in many years. I was still rusty in many ways, though while I was working on it I had a distinct mental breakthrough about my inspirations and goals for making art. In many ways, this drawing was a process of going back to…
