El Tiburon vs El Pulpo WiP

WiP of my El Tiburon (Shark) vs El Pulpo (Octopus) piece so far.

1. Preliminary sketch.

2. Refined my sketch - The position of the original octopus was no good Luchador was not looking at it. So I modified it to make them face to face and eye to eye. Also improves composition. I try to fix as many errors at this stage, proportions, composition, etc.

3. Cleaned up the lines for a more refined line drawing. Ready for colors.

4. Added some base colors to characters. Modified digitally via hue/saturation/brightness/contrast to get the colors I want.

5. Changed base colors up to give the characters more contrast. Made Octopus red to contrast with the Luchador's blues.
 - Went with a comic book coloring style. Created separate layers on top of base colors, Shadows set to Overlay and Highlights set to Color Dodge.
 - Chose a dark turquoise value for the shadows and color picked base colors for color dodge highlights.
 - Used lasso tool to select areas I needed and then used the Gradient fill tool set to circular and Foreground to Transparent and filled in selections.

6. Will fill this step in when I get there, but will probably be more of step 4 and just deciding on a background.

Korra Sketch

Korra Sketch Work in Progress that I am...uh....working on.

Hand Trick 1

Digital Trick: Recently I've been trying to draw more hands...yeah HANDS! Since I'm right handed, I tend to use my LEFT hand as reference. So drawing a characters left hand is getting easier.

But characters have right hands too! Since I can't draw with my left hand to free up my right hand for reference, I just flip the DIGITAL drawing horizontally so that the characters right hand is now his or her left. Now I can draw it and just flip it back later.

So when you see a right hand drawn from's really a left hand...I just draw left hands.

Flipping the image also helps you see wrong proportions, tangents, basically stuff that is "OFF" so it's good to flip the image back and forth when you are working on it.

But what about traditional hand studies? Once I figure that out, I'll write something, but for the time being, maybe mirrors or those nifty hand mannequins.

Hope someone finds this useful.

Comic Con 2012 & Drawings

Comic Con was great. Hung out with and saw a lot of friends. So much to see and so little time to see everything. Got to chat with some of the Udon artists, Long Vo and Joe Ng ( Met Linda, aka Vampy! ( Got to chat a bit with Raychul ( Also had a fun chat with a Resident Evil fan at the Capcom booth, Su Wan ( Including the people that I met, Vampy, Raychul, Su Wan, there were soooo many other great costumers and cosplayers there. Made it into the Community panel! Pop! Pop! Attended the Epic Mickey panel w/ Marv Wolfman and watched Jim Lee draw several times. Picked up a couple of Alex Ross sketchbooks and came back with 8+ shirts, my favorite of which is the Playstation: All Star Battle Royale Team Sly Shirt, since my initials are SLY! Also came away with a Hitman tie, a beanie, and a Foot clan hat. A great 5 days. Can't wait for next year.

A few things I drew while there:
