Haven’t posted a lot lately. Been kinda busy with some other cool stuff.
But here’s one of my new designs.
A little sumthin’ I made for the guys at Normalboots.com
I never tried my hand at ‘pixel art’ so I’m a bit of a noob in this field, but I felt it was an appropriate style to use here.

The final product
Original drawing I made during class
I recently started to shift through some of my old drawings and sketches to see if something would spark, rekindle my enthousiasm for them. I’ve been having a lot of fun doing digital work but lately found myself lacking any real inspiration to come up with new and interesting pieces.
So I thought, if I can’t come up with something new, maybe I can work on something old… so I did.
I choose this sketch first because it was the first one that really struck me as something that had the potential to be something far greater than it was now; a little doodle in a notebook I made during classes. And I think it became just that. Not perfect, but great nonetheless.
Also, I can’t wait to work on some of the other sketches and drawings. I didn’t think it would be so much fun to revisit all of them, but I’m having a blast. Although not all of them are that great or usable it’s still a fun little trip down memory lane.
Demon Frogs!! Or something.. could be a lizard, I’m not sure yet. Could be a dragon for that matter…
(I guess it depends on whether or not I’ll flesh out this design some more).
All I know for sure is that I wanted to draw an evil looking creature. So I did.
A Christmas card I made for my friends and family.
When I was little I always made birthday and holiday cards. But as I grew up I kind of lost the incentive and actually grew out of drawing altogether. These past years I picked it up again and this is something I wanted to do for a long time but everytime the holiday season came around I just never got to it. It’s only after I got into digital art that I really set myself to pay homage to my own little tradition.
I wanted it to be dark and mysterious but still hopeful. I really like how it turned out.
"For all those who, despite their own struggles and personal adversity, choose to love, share and inspire others"
A line someone, whom I greatly respect, once uttered. I’m paraphrasing it a bit here but it was more the essence of what was said that resonated with me anyway. It was the inspiration for this Valentine’s Day card.
A new design in the ‘Dystopia’ series
the tagline is a paraphrase from Stephen King, The Running Man
Dawn of a new day :)
