So...I have this fandom...



Okok. I've been doodling a lot now. And I had some free time at work, and I'm going to see Deathly Hallows for the second time tonight and and...

well...I have a long standing history of Voldemort obsession. I can't put my finger on it, I think it's just the simplicity of his design that I like...and I've never been 100% on the movie version.
I love what Ralph Fiennes has done with it...but I just don't dig on Voldemort with normal eyes and ears. Just an opinion.

It's also fun to do this as a "look how far we've come" exercise:



Anyways, I'm off to the movies!
Cheers, guys!

More Jellybots and a Doodleface



More Jellybots! It's smiling at you :)
I thought I'd spend a little more time to give this idea it's due. Again, not a huge amount of work here, but I want to keep it simple. I'm starting to figure out the tone I want to strike, visually at least. I should be working on other things...but I figure this is helping to keep me fresh.



Again, just toying around with some new techniques and brushes. Really just doodling into the wee hours. But since it resulted in an actually colored piece (love love Cintiq!), I thought I'd post it it :D

Really nothing more than a doodled collection of things I like to draw...hair, noses, little eyes and floppy collars :p

Otherwise, not much to report. Thanksgiving-break spent holed up in my room at my parents' house. Coming down occasionally to let my family know I love them and that my workaholism is not their fault, and then disappearing back into the upstairs to draw.

And then there's the food. Egads! I've written this weekend off as a loss diet-wise. I think I have a stuffing-problem. I am addicted.

Anyways: Happy Thanksgiving, all!
I hope you are well and have plenty to be thankful for!
I am thankful for my wonderful family, their patience, my Cintiq mistress, and the project that will keep me from sleeping for the next few months. Also, my car. Which drives me to and from my Cintiq. :)

Bis sp├Ąter,
LEFTOVER SANDWICHES!

Jellybots



Hi!
I got a Cintiq! :D To break it in, I sat up a did a really quick doodle. It's not much to look at, but I needed to get some portion of the concept down, because it's been sitting in my head for months.

It's a concept I hope to develop really fully at some point when I have some time to myself. Try to flesh out the world and cast of characters...
For now, I'm just psyched to have the opportunity to loosen up and sketch (with color!) quickly and easily.

And in the meantime, I'm completely swamped with a particular side project I am completely psyched about. I don't think I'll say anything here yet, but please be patient. I know I promised to do more personal work and not to disappear...you'll just have to trust me that I am doing just that...but you can't see any of it. yet. :D
