Dilophosaurus in Love!

So I've decided to do a series on called "Dinos in love". Here's the first completed image. This idea was suggested to me by a friend, thanks to her! ^^,

I started out sketching using Odosketch, because I love the way things look in it. But after I finished the sketch, I didn't like it. I felt it looked too messy, and it looked like Dilophosaur was throwing up!! Anyway, here's that sketch.

So after that failed attempt, I went back to sketching on paper. This felt so easy now. And after a few minutes of scribbling, I made this.

Then I took to Illustrator. Spent about 3 hours on it was done!

Staying “ahead” of trouble (Illustration Friday)

I've been drawing a lot of rhinos lately, so for this week's illustration I thought I'll include a rhino in it somehow.

I spent a lot of time tweaking the colors on this one and finally ended up with yet another yellow palette. Also, I created some custom brushes in Photoshop. I took my sponge and dabbed some marks and scanned them and made brushes out of them. I plan to do more digital sponge/cell looking paintings.

My favorite guitarists

I spent most of my time today drawing caricatures of some of my favorite and most influential guitarists. I plan to convert these into a vector art series very soon. Can identify them? Leave your guesses in the comments :) (hold the cursor over each image to get a hint)

I (heart) Scarlett

I love Scarlett just as much as I love drawing silhouettes! So I decided to make a silhouette of her.

Detective Crow

Well, I've always wanted to own a blog meant purely for my illustrations. Today I finally made one! Hope I'll keep up with this, and continue to post all of my illustration work from now on.

I decided to start things off by doing something fun, so I head out to Illustration Friday. The topic for this week is "detective." Really fun topic. The first thing that popped in my head was film noir, so I spent a few minutes on Googling for "film noir", and I found this picture. I love that shot with hard long shadow of the man in a long coat. I decided to use those elements in my illustration.
