old man jenkins

i felt inspired yesterday, but not to draw my usual. i felt like i was finally comfortable enough to step outside of my comfort zone and draw a person with no extra arms or super bulky. just a person. and this is what i made.

hes a super ultra tough cowboy who doesnt take crap from no one. hes a rancher, so when i draw his full body, his hands are gonna be rough looking. i plan on doing as much as i can with this character to try and use it as a guide to improve my art and my abilities. i hope to be well outside of my comfort zone by the end of this project.

hatian demon

hey all. i havent been on here in forever and ever. BUT im back. ish. i have been hunting for a job (regular, not in the field) and feeling rather down about the lack of interest from everyone ive applied to. whats worse is i stopped drawing for a bit. thought that it might make me feel worse if i started drawing something and couldnt get the idea out the way i wanted. then i realized that it just feels good to draw, regardless of how good or bad the image is. ...which brings me to the first piece ive posted on here in nearly three...four...months...?

this fellow was inspired by an image of a haitian dressed to celebrate mardi gras. i tried to draw him as the demon i imagined he was dressed to portray. even if i got no where near what he was trying to be, it was still alot of fun to draw. ive also been working on my line work and hope to soon have photoshop so i can color this bad boy. also, if anything needs to be fixed let me know and ill hop right on it. i wanna re work this into a bad ass concept for my portfolio.
