New batch of tablet art

Just so you guys don't think I'm slacking off over the break. Did these since I got back, all on the tablet in photoshop, most of them this morning.

Character belongs to Livejournal's Rantingmule. I signed up for a character art exchange thing and got him this month. It was fun to draw, he's supposed to be this muscular, shaggy-haired, scarred, tattooed junkie, so basically the sort of thing I always draw when I'm left to my own devices. I had higher hopes for this picture, but it refused to turn out the way I wanted... so, meh. Did it over the course of an evening or two between bouts of sickly napping.

House/Wilson stuff, because someone told me they wanted to see more of it. And if someone tells me to draw something, it's usually pretty likely I'll draw it for them. Spent about twenty minutes on it.

Vega's great, he's my favourite Street Fighter character. I would (.... /have...) bought the games entirely for his presence in them. Played with the perspective in this one, but wasn't overly satisfied with the results. Meddled with the anatomy to the point where his abs kind of started to pudge out. I dunno, despite all that I'm not overly offended by the end product. About an hour or so of doodling this morning while I watched inane talk shows on CTV.

People say I should draw more women, so I tried my hand at one of those pink haired Elfen Lied things that always seem to be having their limbs torn off. Tinkered with it for a few hours but ultimately got bored of it and left it as it was.
On that note, the cartoon wasn't bad. Kind of an overly-cutesy style for a cartoon about people being torn limb from limb, but meh. I have to say I got a kick out of the way the character's horns changed dimensions every time they moved their heads, though.

Felt like drawing Sailor Moon.

Felt like making her look less... Aryan...

Started this late last night sometime, finished early this morning.

Bryan said he likes Harley, so I drew Harley.

Maybe half an hour of doodling sometime this morning. After Sailor Moon, before Vega.

So the moral of this story is, catch me in the right mood and suggest something to me, chances are I'll draw it for you. Also, even when completely incapacitated by illness I still can't stop drawing.

I should force myself to be more like Igor and experiment with digital painting instead of just doing the same sort of stuff over and over again. Gotta let go of those inhibitions, just get messy and figure things out.

You have possibly the best attitude I know when it comes to drawing. You. Never. Stop. I dont think I've so much as looked at a pencil since I've been home so far. Also Your crying Dolf Lundgren expression change was AWESOME.

I wholeheartedly approve of the sailormoon drawing. Also, you draw far too much for it to be humanly possible, so you know, I have my doubts.
