I have created the best illustrator brush ever

I dare you not to smile using this brush.

So, I have a website for my portfolio now, even though it's under construction. [link]

What on earth should I put here now?

Should I just do art updates and crosspost to DA?

Should I even post on DA?

Should I even post here?

So many questions.

Speedpaint during rendering.

I think I'm a new convert to the pencil tool for roughs, though I'll leave resizing to photoshop next time. Eeeech. Large update soon.

2009 so far.

Well internet, here's 2009's best caricatures so far.

I like her eyes.

These guys were fun to talk to. She had incredibly long hair, but didn't want to be Rapunzel, and he was a DJ, so I made him a bard. Bards can slay dragons too. Also, I vote this picture for best theme-breaking accessory- not many old-time bards rocked a ball cap. I should have given one of them a wristwatch.

Though not incredibly evident in this photo, the girl on the left was sufficiently paler than the girl on the right. It made for nice contrast. D:

Oh man. You couldn't ASK for a better pair. Freddy and I saw these two walk by, and were kinda bummed when they walked off after asking the prices. Then they came back and got their caricatures done by each of us! We both got to draw them! Huzzah!

I was supposed to work with Oliver, but he went home before I had finished this. This is what I imagine the day would have been like if he hadn't.

We talked about music, she didn't know who Duran Duran were. ):

The rest are from today:

I'm glad I have a picture of this guy, because I want to draw him again. His face is wicked.

Suuuuure. Smile AFTER the caricature. I'll draw braces someday. These two were really really tan. It was kind of impressive.

Drew him while he was drawing (Shhhh, don't tell the boss) . I'd kinda like to try again.

Hmmm.. Leaning forward in that photo lost all of the excellent neck she had.... bah.

Well, more caricaturin' tomorrow and the day after. Hopefully I'll draw something interesting enough to put me off leaving for another week.

Best of 2008!

Not much to see here, especially since I didn't get good until about the end of the year, but here goes - chronological order:

I remember this being the first girl drawing that I thought turned out. How exciting.

These guys were awesome. I drew their two kids, and then they decided they wanted one. I remember it started raining really hard that day, and I wound up closing 3 later than I'd thought (we had planned to close 3 at 9:00 that day) leaving them waiting for me at one. I ran into the father in the pouring rain, we were both drenched, but I had triple-bagged the caricatures so all was good. I think that was the first and only time I've ever gotten a hug from someone I've caricatured. A big, wet, Ontario-Quebec hug. Who says we don't get along?

Of course, in the photo her eyes are half-closed. THEY WERE HUGE.

Ah. A picture of Daniel drawn from description alone (thus Andrea). He's running from the crabs that women's underwear might give him. I forget why Ollie's in there. He- he's fun to draw?

Inagural Post.

Hello internet.
