Where have I been? What have I been working on? Well to be honest, I have been right here and I haven’t been working on much but I have still been working on some stuff.
First up Crump is finished. This is probably my first drawing I have put this much effort into the coloration since that Dwarf ranger I did way back when.
I still managed to miss his shoe now that I see that. I am happy with how he has turned out but I still need to work on a lot of stuff. Like adding natural detail. My coloration still needs a lot of work. One thing I really need to work on is making a drawing without needing inking outlines. But maybe that is just my style? No probably just my comfort zone.
Next up is my first attempt at a graphic design logo. A friend and I have always talked about having our own bar/restaurant thing. One day, while drinking manhattans, we pondered if anywhere actually served them. Then we thought “If we had a bar we would serve a bunch of kinds of Manhattans!” but imagine that is very slurred speech. Then was born the idea of Manhattan’s On Main.
Here is a potential logo.
I used my beloved ruler tools for almost all of this. I think it turned out fairly well for a first draft/try. Would you eat/drink at Manhattan’s? I just realized that the apostrophe is not necessarily needed. We will say its long version is Manhattan is on main. Grammar oops.
Lastly what I have been working on this week is body forms and poses. Here are four different poses I was working with. The three point landing, shooting, leaping slash, and neutral.
From these I made one quick doodle for you. Here is Roamin’ as a cowboy sans hat.
That is all for today. I know there isn’t much exciting going on with this post but I needed to give you something to ensure to myself I have not given up on blogging. I still have not decided on my rebranding name so I have not changed any of that yet.
There are still free commissions being offered, click on the link at the top of the page, and I will still take requests if you have something you would like drawn.
