A Guy, Man

"A Guy, Man"


This is something from last year. I put quite a bit of detail into the hair. I was looking through my old drawings to post something old since I don't have anything new ready to blog. I've been doing that lately. The title of this artwork is inspired by a character from the X-Files TV event earlier this year. There was a character named Guy Mann (I think that's the spelling).

Gesture Drawing with Alex Woo



I don't have a drawing that I feel like blogging today, but here's a video from Alex Woo of Schoolism about gesture drawing.

Gray Alien

"Gray Alien"
I didn't want to bother scanning an artwork for a blog post today, so I'm blogging this. This is a digitally colored artwork I did some years ago. I watched some alien specials, hosted by Jonathan Frakes of Star Trek: the Next Generation, earlier this week. So, I thought this would be an appropriate artwork for a post. Whether you believe the stuff in those shows or not, they're interesting to watch.

The Face Of Gus

"The Face of Gus"
Here's something I drew last year. It's just one of those drawings that I didn't necessarily have anything in mind for, and I just started drawing. I named him Gus. I thought that name suited him. The title of the drawing is a nod to the Face of Boe on Doctor Who, since the drawing is just of a face, or a head actually.

The Tourist

"The Tourist"
When I was scanning this I realized it might not be entirely clear whether the alien character is leaving, or arriving on, Earth. My original intention was that the background in the drawing is his home planet and he was being beamed up to go to Earth.. I was trying to go for a background that didn't necessarily look like Earth. But I thought about other ways that people might interpret it. For example, he might be arriving on a post-apocalyptic Earth. As you can see, he's a big fan of Earth entertainment.

Angry Blob (Updated)

"Angry Blob"
This is something I drew last year. It's basically a mutant character in a post-apocalyptic scene. I've been thinking about blogging this drawing. I ended up deciding to blog it today. I draw characters like these sometimes. I draw weird creatures, I think because I don't have anything in particular to draw.

Update: I might go back and digitally color the original drawing of this, or maybe ink it and color it with colored pencils. I originally drew this on printer paper, so the latter is something I could do for that reason. I could do either.

Woman In Dress

"Woman in Dress"
It's been awhile since I drew this, but I think I based it on a picture of Jessica Alba in a form fitting, peach colored dress at the premiere of her movie Honey. It's similar to the drawing I blogged Friday. I saved this one for today rather than blogging it last week or Sunday.
