Monster Beach final

Well here's the final version of the Monster Beach pinup I've been working on. It took a lot longer than I anticipated (or wanted to work on it) but its done and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I was playing around with the new photoshop (CS5) most of the coloring was done using the new painty type brushes. I'm not sure I found them behaving any different from the standard photoshop brush but they did give the piece  some interesting texture, in my opinion. Also since I had just thrown some new memory into my mac I wanted to see how big a file it could handle and so I was working on this at an insane size (60"x 60" 600dpi) and it seemed to be working fine for the most part I ended up changing that size (a more reasonable 22" wide 300dpi) about half way through.
I did the inks in illustrator. I've been enjoying using illustrator to ink recently. Sometimes it takes longer than just regular inking and scanning but it is definately less messy.
Well I hope you enjoyed these last few posts showing my work stages. I had fun posting them, I'll probably try and do that more often.

Here's another pencil drawing, it was going to be part of the same series as this but I think I've changed my mind on what I feel like drawing. Well there you go. thanks for reading.

monster beach: stage two

so here's the next stage of my drawing process, at least for this piece. I took the other sketch (it was originally about 3" across and blew it up to 17" across and then refined some of the drawing, you'll also notice I added another character to the scene. I'm sort of planning to do a series of drawings based around the great Canadian 3-D movie "the Mask" (A.K.A. Eyes from Hell, The Spooky Movie Show.) Basically what that means is I'll be doing a few drawings featuring some skulls and a weird skull mask. There might even be a few anaglyph 3-D elements.

stay tuned

I'm still doing that Arthritis Charity walk in London on the 31 of May, If you've got some spare money and want to help a good cause you can sponsor me in my walk by going to this LINK! thanks!

Arthritis Walk

Hey gang, in a couple of weeks I'm taking part in an arthritis charity walk. My sister's been fighting the disease for the last 22 years and she's got the horrible kind that literally is eating her alive, so I figure since she's doing the walk I should join her, you know being the big brother and all. anyway if you have some spare money you can sponsor me for the walk here this LINK! I'd appreciate it. If you want something for your donation I'll do a drawing for donations too. just let me know if you've donated (I haven't done this before but I think the society will send me a little e-mail that says who's sponserod me so I can send a thank you e-mail) any way every little bit helps and if you're an artist you should be afraid of this disease too. again here's where you can sponsor me HERE! thanks!

Skull beach stage 1

What you see here is the first stage of a drawing I'm working on for fun. I figured it might be fun to show the stages of the piece as I work on it. This is the first pencilled part of it. I scanned it in and blew it up to the size I figure I'm going to work on it. Next stage you'll see is a tighter large penciled version
