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

Ever Skyward page is up!

I’ve created a Tumblr page specifically for the comic. I’ve been really working on it for about a year, and I think I finally have a good idea of what I’m doing with it.
Right now, there’s only the KanĂș TamĂș painting I did, but expect to see some more pages going up soon!

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"

More style exploration

Still working with different styles and approaches, this time trying to marry Marko Djurdjevic and Matt Rhodes' approaches.
Character belongs to Marko Djurdjevic.

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.

Style experimentation - Javed

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!
