SotD: Flightless Birds

Kind of a quick one tonight. A couple characters from a story I'm working on about a kakapo and an emu. These aren't quite complete, they're missing their helmets and goggles but you'll see them all geared up soon enough.

And the sketches:

That's not a log!

After a few comments from some friends, I went back in and made the birds solid instead of transparent. One pal said they looked like they made of jell-o. So here is an updated version.

A couple of birds land on the wrong log.

SotD:1-21-13 - McSwindle-esque

The quintessential sleaze-ball car salesman of all time is Swindle McSwindle from the wonderful '80's cartoon "Garfield and Friends", not to be confused with that CG mess they pass for Garfield nowadays. But this illustration was inspired and is dedicated to the all time master of sleaze...Mr. McSwindle.

SotD: 1-18-13 - Mafia Rat

Here is a made rat. A little stereotypical, I know, but a Brando-rat is always a fun draw.

sketch o the day: Gentle Giant's an updated sketch of how I saw this illustration in my head. The color one really wasn't sitting well with me so I had to fix it. The new sketch is still rough but has a tad more personality to it and no odd gym shorts on the giant. And it will be finalized in color...vector, more than likely.

Something quick to post to keep this daily thing rolling. This is an idea I got of a list of random story lines, this one was called "Gentle Giant". I like the concept of this one and I'll probably revisit it and add better details and lighting, but for now it will doooo....

Sketch of the day: Crayon Drawings

Don't you love it when you go into a restaurant, sit down and at the table there is a little cup of crayons and a paper tablecloth to draw all over?  Me too.
Here are a few crayon drawings I did one night at dinner.
