Some more drawings

Here are a couple more drawings I've done recently. I want to color them in Photoshop, but I don't know the first thing about the sort of "digital painting" style I'm looking for, so for now, they're mainly colorless. I did the base coloring on the first one but didn't want to attempt shading just yet. Anyway, here you go!
Originally, instead of a hand, the head was just going to be wired onto her arm, but I decided that looked kind of weird, so I changed it.
An orc! Blizzard Entertainment has an ongoing art contest that features excellent artwork themed on their games, so I kind of drew it with this in mind. This guy is pretty Warcraft-like. I don't know, if I ever get it colored well I might submit it to said contest.

Oh yeah, it's Christmas. Happy Holidays.

Snowed in

Well, I'm here at home on a Monday, as it snowed yesterday, and though the snow is almost gone, the school's still shut down, and I'm really okay with that. Anyway, tomorrow is the day we get the finished version of our comic. I did much better work this year than I did last year in the book we put together then, but we've lost several other excellent artists who contributed to the book, so I'm still not sure if this year's book will be any good. Either way, we'll find out tomorrow.

Graphic Novel Update!

Well, I finished the chunk of pages I'm putting in the anthology that our good friend Jake Richmond has put together. However, upon doing so, I realized a major flaw in my graphic novel plan. I have this great setting, but a plot that utterly fails in every way to take advantage of what the setting has to offer or even work well with it at all, actually. So I'm happy with the pages I've done as a sort of first draft, but as a whole I want to rework it into something a bit more dynamic. My problem may be that I want to create something outstanding, original and epic, but don't have the skill or resources to do so just yet. Damn. So for a while, now that I've got my pages in, I'll focus on smaller projects while working to develop my plotline.
In the meantime, here's a self-portrait I threw together in 5 minutes!
