What I've been working on

Thought it would be a good idea to post some current WIP's and sketches I have going at the moment.

First up is an ongoing piece for an artist on DeviatArt. I've had a lot of fun with this so far, I'm taking a little break from it at the moment (don't want to end up ruining it), but it's not far off completion. I've taken screen shots of this as I've gone along and will put them together to make another walk through when the piece is finished.

An old friend of mine found a very old drawing I did for him when we were back in college. So I decided it would be fun to do an updated version. Dragons are super easy to draw, so it's been a nice little break from everything else.

Some terrible attempts at drawing expressions. I've been planning a comic based on an old project of mine, and I realised that I had better get practising with expressions, because they're something I've never really done. I always have characters in the neutral expression, which isn't very interesting or dynamic, so it's some very much needed practice! Many more to come.

And lastly, some quick figure sketches I've been doing when I have a spare 5 minutes. These are super fun to do, and it's nice to practice doing women with different body types (or at least attempt to).

So that's about it for now! Should have the finished pieces for the first two up in a couple of days.

Costume variations

I decided to do some costume variations for a character design that I did a few weeks ago. It was good to see how much I could change a design and still make her recognisable as that same character. Could probably push things further, but this'll do for now.

About the eye patch and her eye- she's not blind in that eye, it's just very sensitive to light, which is why it's covered most of the time. The mutation has spread up her arm across her chest, up her neck and to that side of the face. I'm tempted to draw her in a full mutated state at some point in the future.
