So it’s been a while.
I’ve moved twice and started a new job since.  Finally getting time and energy to get some art done.
Someone shot me a message asking for Moon Knight, so here he is!  I’d almost forgotten about this guy!
Turned out a lot darker than I’d originally intended, really need to work on and focus on contrast a lot more!
Stock moon is from LINK
Let me know if anyone wants to see some specific fan-art next, always looking for something to draw!

More refined version of Commander Eagle for the up-coming webcomic.
Gotta admit: this cartoon-y style is kinda fun!
As always, I appreciate all feedback!

Got his design where I want it, I think, and I’ve got a personality in mind.  Just needs a name and face!
Details, details…
What do you all think of him so far?

paintedking:

Going to try and re-develop an old OC of mine from pretty much the ground up. I plan on working up at least six more hair/facial hair/scar combos before I move on.
 First time I’ve ever done anything like this, please feel free to inbox me with any suggestions/Opinions!
Anyone have a favourite of the current three ( feel free to mix-and-match! ) ?

All I can hear is Dean saying: “I liked you better in a suit.”
Some fan-art of Dean Winchester and The Horseman from Sleepy Hollow, really digging this show.  Still trying to work on this angle…
Done in Photoshop CS2 Aprox 6 hours

Been a while!  Here’s some fan-art of Loki requested by my awesome friend Miss Mora!
Perspective is a little wonky, sorry!
Painted in Photoshop CS2, Aprox. 4 hours total
Inspired by new Thor movie and old comic design
Also: I’m always taking requests for fan-art!  Saves me a lot of time when I sit down to draw to have ideas already!  Thank you!

Loki is (c) Marvel!

So Bucky is coming along.  I may re-work the face ( again ) and the belt.  Not too satisfied without the pouches turned out.
I plan on going back and adding more details after I get done with Natasha.
Lots of trial and error here, lots of learning still taking place!

Spent a lot of time painting and re-painting for the same reasons mentioned in the last post.  Can’t quite nail down how I want to go about certain parts of the image.
Hope to figure it out tomorrow and start to really make progress.  Plus side is I’m learning some new things!

Dunno if people like to see this kind of stuff, so we’ll see how this goes.  Feel free to let me know if anyone would like to see more posts like this!
So, this is the main reason it takes me a long time to finish most things, as I’m all about practicing and practicing, trying to completely understand what I’m doing before I move on.  For a while I was happy with trying stuff and it accidentally turning out cool; however, I don’t really find that acceptable anymore.
This is some variations numbered in the order that I painted them and mental notes that I made before I tried something else.
For those who can’t read my terrible handwriting, from left to right, top to bottom:
"Painting Practice #1 ‘Winter Widow’ "
"Flats" - Simple flat colours.  Helps to establish harmony

"#3 - I like Subtlety, but values won’t hold up"
— meaning, that in a larger image the colours will appear flat and uninteresting, especially if the background is lighter.  Despite that, it’s one of my favourites of the group.  Possibly adding highlights, I could make the shadows seem darker.
"#1 - I like values, but colours are too muddy"
— So the values ( scale of white to black ) work at range, but the colours themselves are blended poorly, and the palette too earthy.  colours appear like mud and no real life in them

"#2 - Better colours, decent values"
—  Reads well as an image, colours aren’t too muddy.  Overall  decent, but not really interesting.

"#4 - Needs more polish, values and colours decent"
— Values are good, colours are a little more natural.  Highlights may be too bright, but with some reflected light this will most likely be the closest to the final version.
