Sorry for the lack of post the nice weather and staying busy has kept me from posting more. Good news is I feel lately like my art block has cleared up. I need more time to actually finish concepts.

Working on a couple of larger designs at the moment still finding time to do these little illustrations. Sketch Dailies really helped me to get my initial designs out on paper much quicker.

I have been busy the last two weeks so this post is a bit of a catch up. The reason for all the Avengers stuff is because my daily practice site Sketch Dailies did an all Avengers daily topic posting. Along with that a couple of reference sketches.

Sketch Dailies theme the other night was Kermit the Frog. Sometimes ideas come to me and sometimes they don’t in this case once I came across the theme and knew what I wanted to do almost immediately.
Sketch Dailies posted Snow White as the theme the other night. For this concept illustration I imagined what if the tale of Snow White was told from an African perspective.
This year I realized I developed a bit of an addiction to Sketch Dailies. Usually on the way home I think about the character design if it’s really good I start right away.
It was fun just using rough 5-10pt brushes not very complex and it has a simple fun look to it.
Yesterday was the first day of Inktober, my goal is to actually make it through the entire month.
The exciting news is Sketch Dailies actually posted my Dredd sketch on their page. This might not seem like a big deal but to me it is. A number of my favorite professional illustrators routinely get posted on their site.
This year I came across a great thought process site called Sketch Dailies. The basic premise is everyday the admin post a theme and artist from all over the world submit their own take on the daily theme.
The other day Baobhan Sith was the daily theme. After doing some research on the theme fyi: it’s a Scottish fairy with feet of a goat that entices young men, I came up with the following concept.
My slight obsession with Sketch Dailies continues into the summer months apparently. The daily theme the other day was Wonder Woman. I am not to sure as to the genesis of this concept, I would like to revisit the design in a more detailed design at some point.
