Some Random Doodles


I did some drawing on paper today, and I realized how much easier it is on paper for me to draw than it is on this tiny little tablet of mine.

I decided to try working on just some posing with this pen to try and see if I can keep up "electronically" as much as I can with paper and pencil.

I was also listening to a lot of Amon Amarth, so, vikings.

This first one is Tor/Thor fighting J├Âmungandr, the World Serpent, at the end of Ragnarok.  The story goes that during Ragnarok (the end of the world) J├Âmungandr comes up from the sea and poisons the sky- and Thor, mightiest of the gods, confronts the beast.  As Thor deals the killing blow with his hammer, he is knicked by one of the serpent's teeth in it's death rattles, and is poisoned. His duty done, and Midgard/Earth protected, he takes nine paces, and falls over dead from the poison.

The second drawing is me passed out at my light table (happening a lot recently) only to be taken to Valhalla by the woman of my dreams, a Valkyrie.  Valkyries were the chosen "Angels" of Odin, who were sent to collect the souls of the bravest warriors and take them to Valhalla, where they'd eternally feast and drink during the night, and fight all day- a training regimen in preparation for, you guessed it, Ragnarok.
I was trying to not go with the "Hurr durr, look at my scantly clad warrior woman", and made her look more like a warrior woman should.  I messed up on her left (our right) arm.  I should probably fix it, but meh.

Hope you enjoyed the Norse bit!  I'm going camping this weekend, so no Saturday posts!  I will be taking my sketchbook with me though, and I hope to do some life drawing!

Left Over Avengers: Thor!

Yeah, I kinda fell off the "Avengers Challenge" wagon, but here's a Thor WIP!

Trying to get more of a "Painted" feel, I started with color first.  Gonna give it some more work.

I got some editing to do for a demo reel!  Gonna try and get me a job!

Day 04: Iron Man (Really, Really Late)

Heya kiddos,

Here's my Iron Man!

Took f**kin long enough, eh?  To make up for it, here's some WIPs with the real deal. rest for the wicked.  On to draw some Loki!

Halfway through drawing the proton cannon, I thought "I don't feel like drawing this anymore", so I just put in my reference art (the proton cannon from MvC:2).

Sorry Hawkeye, but you're dumb to me and I'm skipping you because I'm so far behind.

A little behind on the Avengers Draw Challenge...

Hey Gang!

I've fallen a bit behind on my draw challenge, but I swear to you, I'll have them caught up by tomorrow night.  I got super set back because of work, and it's really thrown me off my game.

I'm trying a new inking process that Angel showed me in Photoshop, and it's just taken a lot longer to work out the kinks for myself.  Iron Man and Loki should be done by tomorrow night, and hopefully a WIP Spiderman or Ant-Man.  My Iron Man is almost done, there's just a lot of details that I've been working on.

Here's a WIP!

Hopefully, a finished Iron Man tomorrow.  And yes, that is a Proton Cannon.

I'm out!
