I can’t exactly remember what the assignment was that had me create this little guy. It was probably just your typical Wizard Of Oz Munchkin Rodent holding a lollypop kind of job… the kind of work that always seems to end up on my drawing board. 🙂
When I was a freshman in college, my first art class assignment was to dream up and create a “dimensional” story. These are a few of the cardboard stand-ups from that project. I entitled it Pedro Perez And The Cosmic Taco Jockeys. As I begin work on issue seven of THE FEW sci-fi comic, it seems I have traveled full circle and am back at the beginning point doing the same sort of things that interested me in my younger days. Funny how life works.
That’s right… when I draw a spaceship it usually has a rear view mirror in the window with fuzzy dice hanging on it.
How do I spend a typical Sunday afternoon in the fall? I take a picture of my Sunday Morning Sermon Notes with the camera on my Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16, pull that picture into Photoshop CC, plop down in a recliner with the tablet on my lap, lean back, get my feet up, turn on a football game and then I contemplate, ponder and meditate on my sermon notes… mainly during the commercials.
Here’s a “work in progress” of a tiny bit of a much larger illustration I’m working on. I start with a pencil illustration, add flat color to it and then render the image. I like to leave as much pencil work in the finished illustration as possible so that the “fingerprints of the artist” are still visible. 🙂
I just had cataract surgery on both eyes, so to give them a trial run I whipped up a creepy little leprechaun in honor of this weekends Notre Dame – Ball State football game. I live about an hour away from both schools, so I’ll be keeping an eye on this game… maybe two.
I’m not sure what’s digging holes in our backyard, but I’m pretty sure it probably looks something like this.
