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

Realistic Link?

Not hyper realistic, perse, but a little less cartoony, at least. I tried to keep the shape of the face boyish-looking and slightly pretty.
I'm gonna polish this up at some point. :)

My wife asked me to sketch up a concept of one of her characters. These are the guidelines she gave me.
-Cliche archer gear
-Cliche mage staff
-Two knives
-Thin and tall

...and here she is.
I might do a better sketch of her in the future

15 more minutes - Nykhor Paul

Another 15 minute sketch, this time of Nykhor Paul.
For this one, I actually spent more like 30 minutes, but that’s only because after 15 minutes, I decided I wanted to try and do the values, too, but then they came out looking crappy, so I scrapped them. Oh well.

15 minute sketch, again

Another 15 minute portrait warmup sketch/study, another unknown model. As before, if anyone knows who this is, do let me know.
Also, imagine that! I ended up making her face too wide...
