Eowyn and the Nazgul

Drawing I started months and ago and then got sidetracked. Debating whether or not to bring it to final.

Goalie Mask - Designs Redux

A while ago, I designed my brother's goalie mask:
Which ended being put on to the mask like so:
However, the mask died recently so my brother has asked me to do a new design for his new mask. I wanted to push the Chinese dragon idea further. Thinking similar to the old Any Moog Bruins mask, but basing it off the Chinese dragons you see on the streets on Chinese New Year. My initial sketch was this:
However, I didn't like this. Seemed to Meso-American to me. I think because of it being so geometric and lacking any roundness? Took another stab:
I liked this better. So this will be a good jumping off point. I'll post the final on here when I've reached that point.

More Facebook Profiles...

Facebook profiles

So, a while ago a person did some quick pen sketches of everyone of his Facebook friends. Then not too long ago, a friend put up a profile pic that I really wanted to draw. This, and the lack of drawing I'd been doing recently, spurred me to try to do some small pencil drawings. I started at the top of my friend's list and am working my way through it. I decided not to limit myself to just drawing whatever the person has as their profile, some are quite faithful to a photo, some are more out of my head. Also, as they are meant to be quick, small, and essentially warmups... they're not all exactly gems. But I'll post a few of the ones I like on here as I progress, starting with these:

Wedding (part 2)

Warming up again

Another warm-up portrait. Didn't turn out looking like the person unfortunately. But I like it as a drawing. So figured I'd share it.


Currently working on a wedding invitation and a wedding portrait (unrelated weddings).

Here's a sneak peek of the portrait:

These are from the Save the Date that went out for the wedding invitation I'm working on now...
