Caroline

This is another character I'm thinking of including in my web comic Clean Sweep :) It's of Caroline, the love interest of my character Rick. I wanted to try doing some more pencil brush inking in Photoshop for fun. Enjoy!

Young Nolan

This is a drawing I did of my character Nolan from my web comic Clean Sweep but younger :). I also tried using the pencil brush in Photoshop to ink, and it was a lot easier to control than using the regular round brush.  I think I'm going to use this style of inking when I get back to drawing my web comic (eventually....) Enjoy!

Sketch Time!



Here are some character studies I did for my web comic Clean Sweep (minus the third one). The top one is of my character Allan, and then the second one is my character Averill. The last one is a character I wanted to continue developing from my Ice Cream Love drawing. Her name is Mint Chip and she provides all of the chocolate chips for the plain mint flavored ice cream in the world. Enjoy!

Rick's Worst Nightmare


Before I start, I honestly have no idea whatsoever where this idea for this drawing came about.  So last night when I was sketching I thought it would be interesting to have one of my characters, in this case Rick, somehow fall into a sticky, gooey, plasma substance and have a hard time getting out of it.  I wanted to create a story around Rick's situation for practice. Enjoy!

Rick and Caroline

This is a quick sketch I did to test out my new scanner, and it is BIG! Anyways, this drawing is of Rick trying to court Caroline, a character I'm thinking of including in my web comic :) Enjoy!

Ice Cream Love

Mint Chip and Strawberry go hand in hand :) Well, at least in this drawing :) I wanted to get back to doing more pastel and chalk drawings and I thought this would be cute. Enjoy!

Digital Wonderland




Here are some drawings I did in photoshop to experiment with a new brush and style :) I think I'm gonna stick with my ink style, which is the style of the second drawing, for more personal stylized character design style choice.  After taking a break from my web comic, I've been able to work out different issues I had in the storyline, and now I like it a whole lot better :) I made Rick more of an involved character rather than in the background all the time. Enjoy!

Sketching Randomness





Some sketches I did for fun in Photoshop :) I thought I might as well sketch more of my character Nolan for practice since I've been mainly sketching my other characters, Robert and Penelope recently. I slightly changed Nolan's hair, but for the most part his overall hair shape stayed the same. I also decided to get some hand sketching practice in just for kicks :) (all done without reference too!) Enjoy!

Sketch Palooza




Some sketches I did in one night to relax :) I also wanted to test out using my grey tombo marker to shade my sketches. Enjoy!

Penelope and Robert Doodle

I wanted to try drawing Penelope and Robert in my other drawing style just for fun :) Robert is holding Penelope's love letter to him :) Enjoy!

Plugged In

Here's a doodle I did to test out a new brush in photoshop. I honestly have no idea where the idea for this drawing came from...even to me it's bizarre. Enjoy!

Clumsy Penelope

Another sketch of my character Penelope :) I wanted to try doing more costume gesture drawing for fun, and viola here it is :) Enjoy!

Penelope and Robert


I wanted to do more character studies of characters set in the Victorian-era :) These characters are the same ones as in my previous post, just more defined. The movie The Prestige definitely got me hooked on the Victorian era :) Enjoy!

A Victorian Love Story


As in the previous post, I recently watched The Prestige, and now I am in love with the Victorian-era :) I wanted to try testing out just sketching with a pen and using tones for fun. Initially I just sketched the first page, but I thought it'd be fun to make a story out of the couple, as in an emotional story.  I might want to do more with these characters, or somehow integrate them into my current webcomic or make a separate one based off of them :) Enjoy!

Victorian Sketches

I finally got around to watching the movie The Prestige and I got inspired to draw some Victorian-era characters. I love the hairstyles and the intricate clothing of that time period since it's very classic looking. I also tried experimenting with pushing my style to be a little more angular and to do more shading. Enjoy! :)

Quick Sketches


Here are some really quick sketches I did :) The princess on the bottom is not supposed to be Cinderella, but after I finished drawing the character I realized that she looked like her. Enjoy! :)

Fun Sketches


Just some random sketches I did for fun :) It's part character sketches and part life sketches, and plus there's Kliftaloon, the magical old timey bathing suit that lives in the Himalayas from Phineas and Ferb within the sketches :) Enjoy!

Rick Animation Test

Here's another animation I did for fun in Photoshop :) It's supposed to be of Rick saying "Fine!" in response to being given an assignment he doesn't want. Enjoy! (Rick is a character from my web comic Clean Sweep)

Cool Girl

I had time to spare, so I decided to practice some more sketching in Photoshop :) I think I'm going to start drawing in this sort of style just for fun to help with getting flow in my drawings :) Enjoy!

New Girl

Here's an after dinner sketch I did for fun in Photoshop :) I just watched the pilot of the new show on Fox called New Girl, and I absolutely loved it! It's so funny :) This sketch is based off of Zooey Deschanel's outfit that was featured in the show. Enjoy!
