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.

This is technically a couple of days lumped together, but I didn't draw as much because I got sick.
Anyway, top is a couple head sketches, along with a bit of control drills for myself. The ones labelled 'hand' and 'shoulder' are what I used to draw, respectively.
On the bottom, a couple feet studies. Feet are inching along into the category of "body part I can't draw at all", up there with hands.

Ever Skyward - Pg3

Ever Skyward it is!
I'm gonna go back and adjust the formatting on the other two pages.
Still haven't settled on a style, so don't freak out if it looks different, or if I go back and alter pages.

UPDATE: Reversed middle panel so hopefully it reads better.

This one is actually a mash of last night and today. Little Hogarth, little Ron Lemen.

Lu Bu's come to destroy us!
About 3 hours in Photoshop CS6. I tried to follow Rembrandt's chiaroscuro. Next time, I need to use a bit of green.
Process video!

Me: "Not really."
Wife: "Laele would totally wear those."
Me: "...I think I know what I'm drawing tonight..."
