GenCon, Sketches and Ceasar

YAY, another post! :D VERY image heavy just to warn you!

First off wanted to say GenCon was amazing. I met tons of nice people and fellow artists, and had a blast hosting my first art table. Here's a pic I snapped of it.

I later on added a line of sketches at the bottom to display as well.

This Mario and Black Mage sketch ended up getting sold, and I also drew a Luigi to display after Mario was gone. But he sold pretty quickly like his bro. :P Unfortunately I didn't mange to take a picture of the Luigi sketch, but I was pretty happy with it too.

Many people seemed to overall like the prints and sketches, and I was drawing almost endlessly the whole time. It was majority OCs and semi self portraits I drew for people, but there were a few fanarts thrown in as well. Here are a few of the fanart commissions I managed to capture before giving them to the clients. Let's see if you recognize them, lol.

And these are the some of the scanned fanart sketches I had on display.

I definitely plan to attend GenCon next year as well, it was a great experience.

Moving on, here's some life drawings I wanted to share. Gotta keep that game up!

And lastly, I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes recently, and I loved it! Ceasar was a pretty cool main character, so of course I had to show my appreciation by doing a fanart of him. :B

It's a weird mix of the cell shade and painterly style, but I suppose it came out okay.

That's all folks!

Pre Gen Con Post!

Holy cow! Feels like its been ages since I last uploaded. :O But don't worry, this post is going to be MASSIVE.

I'm leaving for Gen Con Indy 2011 (a video game convention) in two days, and there I'm going to be in the Artist Alley! It's my first time at the alley, so I've been preparing madly for it. In only two weeks prior to today I managed to complete seven new pieces. Four fanarts and three new originals. I'm probably more blind than I already was gazing at Photoshop like a possessed artistic zombie. Curse you procrastination!

Anywho, I'm very excited about the con, and I hope to make somewhat of an impression. We shall see...

Here are the new pieces I worked on, as well as the prints I'm going to sell. These will all be printed on 13" x 19" in both semi gloss and matte.



Harry Potter: Yeah, it' not a video game...but I felt like doing a pic, especially since the last movie was just released.

Jazz Jackrabbit: One of my most favorite PC platformer games from my childhood. I hardly see any fanart for it, so I decided to give it a try. I'm curious how many people will recognize it at the con.

Sonic the Hedgehog: Those who know me, already know I love Sonic. Simply had to do it.

Angry Birds: Oh man, this was a last minute addition. I suddenly thought to myself (while playing Angry Birds lol) why didn't I make a print of this already? It's clearly one of the most popular and enjoyable games made in recent times. It might be a good idea to make one.

Durr. :B

And finally some older pics I did about a month ago, but for some reason didnt upload here. My bad. :P These are simply old characters of mine and my sis we created years ago. Just wanted to draw them again for nostalgic purposes, and to also try and enhance my digital line art and cel shade skills.

And that's all for now, hope you enjoy!
