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.

Still working on this guy. Trying to simplify my values a bit and not worry too much with the rendering until all the planning is done.
This is why it's important to have a plan before you jump in, so you don't spend all your time going back and fixing mistakes over and over.
Plan your drawings, kids!

Black Bishop

An Animal Crossing joke, what?
I know Dr. King wasn't a bishop, that's part of the joke.
"...this isn't a bishop.."

The Undertaker - Backwater Gospel

The Undertaker, from The Backwater Gospel short film.
Really cool film. If you haven't seen it, go watch it. :)
Done for my challenge over at Polykarbon.
Painter X3. About an hour total.

I wanted to give this statue a try because the pose is so interesting and dynamic, but it proved too much for me (which is why I left out his sons!)
Painter and Photoshop.
