Hello people who give a shit.
I've set this blog up as a place where I can throw up all the things I've thrown up with my wacom tablet and limited photoshop skills. Most of the work I will be putting up here will be works in progress, and a good deal of it will never be finished.
One of my potential futures includes an interest in concept art. As an avid gamer, being a part of that world in which I would be able to exercise my drawing abilities in conjunction with the creation of a complete work could be a great experience for me. As a result, a lot of the stuff you'll see me putting up are works in progress to be eventually added to my portfolio of concept art.
One may note that the title of this blog is 'May Contain Dragons'. As both a doctor of Dragonology and an artist you will find that dragons frequent my drawings.
Here are a few of my illustrated works that are not yet completed:
This little guy is from a series of drawings I'm putting together called 'Project Galaxy'. It's a series of drawings all down in a cartoony spacey way, mostly starring this turquoise guy. The second drawing in the series was completed but scrapped for the crime of looking like shit.
This was one of my first attempts at doing landscape entirely tablet-based. I'm still not finished with it, there are a lot of things I need to tweak still and I'm only just getting used to using colour for this type of thing. I''ll need to put another 4 hours into this one at least.
This guy I've put at least 12 hours of work into. I'm fairly happy with the result, being the first real long-term tablet work I've done. Heavily inspired by both many images of Bahamut and Shadow of the Colossus. I may convert him into colour when I have a better grasp on it.
The next three are all drawings I did for Bored Stiff. They're a Toronto-based Hardcore band who are fast, hard and will break your face in. You can check their shit out here. I'm good buddies with the lead singer D'Arcy and they thought a series of drawings I did titled 'Monster' from back in my punk rock days was cool enough to have as the album cover for their demos. I've been doing shit for them since. I haven't done anything new for them in a while, but here are a few things I did for them in the past 6 or 7 months.
Thanks for reading
