Autumnly Thinking

Some Autumn(Autum) work scribbled on a huge doodle page. I might actually make this something if I can fix the wolf and the bow, clean it up a bit....Maybe.

Would be hunter.

That's how he was going to look before I even started the print, I had high hopes for this guy. But no matter how I drew him those 2 white eyes under the hood always looked goofy....Special Infected Jawa. Plus, I don't think it reads too well, not that the final one does either. No matter how I positioned him, short of leaping crazily, he always looks like a clump. Can't be avoided I guess. Here he reminds me of a cat!

Prints '09

In the many attempts on prints this summer I managed to finish 3. I had a Persona 4, Valkyria Chronicles, L4D survivors and a few others that just didn't make it.

The L4D one I already addressed issues I had with it. Damn that smoker looking so fine compared to the rest of his crew. What a douche. Originally this was going to have the survivors in the foreground and the SI crew behind them under a single super high contrast light source. That might have been messy!

Last year and this year I asked some shadow of the colossus fans which colossus they'd like to see me do most. Mostly I heard colossus 5 and colossus 13. I went with 5 because...............
I FELT LIKE IT. At the time. I wanted to do an awesome skewed perspective from the tip of the wing, oh my god epic. BUT it didn't really fit with the look of my past SotC prints. So there it is. Originally this had the birdy much deeper in fog so it was almost a silhouette as to suggest...Oh crap Wander! Look out its coming to get you! And he can't see it. But that looked way too boring and simple and the sense of scale just wasn't there.

Naruto! Did this back when the sage mode and 6 tails manga had just been translated. Fresh stuff! Now its so passe with the 8 tails and all. Oh well. I think the 6 tails looks cooler. Wait did they skip 7 tails? I don't remember. I was gonna squeeze Pain in on this but where the hell would he go? I had a lot of fun painting the skull too much maybe because the rest of the painting bored me to tears. Maybe I should paint more skeletons. Actually scratch that...bones...way too many bones. Just skulls.

And it goes on and on my friend ...

So as I struggle with my new, nit-picky computer(er Vista) I find, once again I have little time for the FF11 commission which as been taking me forever to complete. Poor thing. It wasn't meant to be like this! How unprofessional of me to take so long. STUPID VISTA!

New Computer!

Uh oh nothing for today. Too busy setting up my new PC.

Chickens aren't just for eating anymore.

Look at that. Isn't it cute?! No way I'd dish out the cash for one, just testing instead. Its run is hilariously chickeny and makes the cutest clucking noises. Oh ... and think of the omelettes!!

Print Failure 1

Yuck, failed prints. My attempts to have a Wander only Shadow of the Colossus print done for Otakon '09 left me with this mess. Colorful sunsets don't fit in the Colossus universe, horses messing with my compositions. and over dramatic place-girl-here scenes. I still want to do this one but HOW?

Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Wasn't really sure what to do with this guy. Call me unimaginative but he is basically a big ball with legs and arm stumps. So instead of standing there I gave him his puking pose. He could have been dancing or of course this ...

Ya maybe a witch or a hunter would be a better choice for lead singer. I just love the sounds the boomer makes way too much to put some screamer up there.

I'm starting a band ...

I saw number 3 from last post's image and I thought of this and I HAD TO!

Tanks...for everything.

You know you can buy a WoW t-shirt that says that? ... I think.
Here's the tank from the L4D print. SO BORING AND WEAK! Also I should have made his hands more stained blood and less ... PINK. His rock sure isn't very impressive either. Lets see what I can do about that.

Maybe some of those are better. Probably. They seem to be more interesting. But I don't know, they might hurt the overall composition of the print? I'LL NEVER KNOW.

What is this...I don't even...
4chan memes aside, this is my smoker from my Left 4 Dead print. I'd say it was the most successful part of it, definitely the most fun to pain. Sadly I did him after most of the other special infected, so looking back...they look stiff and boring as ass compared to him. Maybe I can do something about that.
