I watched a tutorial on www.idrawgirls.com (which is amazing by the way) of a monster concept design inspired by the devastating movie 'Cloverfield'. I didn't want to duplicate his concept, but I kinda went in his direction, but added my own touch to it. I'm fairly happy with it.

Here's a piece that I almost trashed, but ended up "finishing". I wanted to practice the methods of Drew Struzan (my favorite pop culture artist by far), by using acrylics, colored pencils, and a little bit of airbrush. I'm pretty happy with it.

Like I stated before, I've been practicing digital art using my Wacom tablet alot lately. I saw a tutorial on doing landscapes, so here are two I created after seeing the steps. I will not post the very first one I did, because it's a total abomination.

I've been treading the digital waters and have been using my Wacom tablet even more than a pencil and paper; though it is odd drawing using the tablet, as I prefer to physically use a pencil against a physical piece of paper. I'm pretty happy with this one other than the fact that after I "finished" it, it reminded me of Cyrax from Mortal Kombat. D'oh!
You may know I already have a website out there at www.westlakeillustration.com, but my friend who put it together created it with a trail version of Flash and Dreamweaver.......meaning he can no longer update it for the time being. That's where this comes in. I'll try to get stuff up here on a more regular basis. Stay tuned....
