About Me

My photo
Grieverjoe (Jose Alvarez) is NOT a whiny emo as his name would suggest. He's an IT student with a love for art.

Kazuya sketch


Me: "What should I study today? Anatomy? Drapery? Maybe a master study?"
Brain: "How about Kazuya from Tekken, from a weird angle with some crazy perspective?"
Me: "ok lol"

Expressions after Vilppu


More work from NMA, more Vilppu. Expressions, this time.
The ones on the right are from a model, about 30-45 seconds each. The best way I can explain it is to capture the expression quick and loose, almost like the gesture of the face. You can always go back and refine it later.

I was actually not done with this done, but I accidentally flattened the image and saved over it. Whoops!
Moving on!

Style experimentation


Just like the title says, just playing around with styles. I still want to do my comic, but I need to find a style to stick to. More to come!

Good stuff. You should check them out. :)

A commission I recently did for Snapcasters Gaming and Espresso. Go check them out. :)

You are not authorized to use this picture without written consent from me, the artist. Why not commission me instead to draw you your very own wizard? :) Drop me a line! Maybe we'll have lunch.
