I'm off to serve an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I won't be online during that time, so no new art will be updated until I return. I have a lot of things planned for my return, including returning to animation. But until then, I'm going to happily serve as a missionary for the LDS church. I wanted to thank you all for supporting me in my artistic endeavors. I really appreciate all the feedback and critique I receive. I will see you all in 2012!
I feel like I don't finalize pieces enough. I have so much fun sketching out the emotions and expressions of characters that I sometimes stiffen up and lose all that character in the clean up process.
Here are two pieces that I splashed some color on. The first was a pencil sketch that I inked and colored in PS. To me, it seems pretty lifeless. The gesture was lost and there isn't much fun to the character or story anymore. The second sketch was a pencil sketch that I colored in PS without trying to ink it. I'm liking that one much better.
I'll work on keeping story in the clean up process.
