More Background Comps

Here are a few more environment compositions that I made. I actually made the forest comp back in October and forgot I made the picture until I stumbled upon it today while looking through my art folder. The other piece is an image of some islands I was inspired to draw by a Suiseki I saw in a Bonsai book. There'll be some more interesting stuff up soon hopefully.

Flapjack's quickly become one of my favorite cartoons. What's not to love? It has insanely great character design by C Raggio and Devin Roth, and amazing art direction in general. Love all the visual gags too, I can't get enough funny faces.

Fallen Tree comp

Here's a thumbnail-sized composition for an illustration I may make a finished version of. If it's unclear, it's three (or 3 and a half?) people crossing a creek on a fallen tree under cloak of night. Sorry it's so small, that's just what it is.

Susan and Mudjo

I drew this as a gift for Susan; it's her and our cat Mudjo. This turned out better than I expected, so I'll probably continue to be a creep and draw little girls and kitties. D: I drew it in Illustrator and did the color in Photoshop. Here's the real Mudjo in a bowtie, inspired by the drawing.

Stalking Tiger

Here's something I whipped up today, a tiger stalking through a snowy birch forest, whose anticipated meal has fled their firesite. I drew it in Flash and added textures and shading in Photoshop. I think I'm going to try to get back into drawing in Flash.

15-Minute Caricature

Here's a quick caricature of a guy I can't beat at darts, Justin McKinley. I want to do more of these.

Misty Waterways

Here's another environment for this week. It's sort of a swamplike place wherein the inhabitants live in trees on their own island, using patches of luminous mushrooms as beacons in the fog. I love drawing fat trees and glowing things (lately), so I'll probably develop this world a bit further.
