Paratrooper character design

I must admit some requests I get are unique.  I enjoyed this quick character design!

Wedding Signing Board (from client)

Here is a pic of the signing board that the client sent to me.  Needless to say, it was a small wedding.

More Termite progress

Wicked little termite, eh?  Just getting the shapes down and putting some color in.

The Termite

Something I'm having fun with right now.  Kind of experimenting.

Wedding Signing Board

And here is the finished piece for the wedding signing board.  The client (in her own words) "absolutely loved it!"  She wanted a kind of Snow White theme with the truck and jet plane being important and personal elements.   They wanted their children and pets included since they are "their life".  I respect when clients have a clear vision of what they want which makes my end of it much more straight forward.

Wacom mobile tablet coming soon

Just announced yesterday on the Wacom Americas Facebook page that Wacom has been listening to consumers wishes and is working "24/7" to make a mobile tablet of their own which is coming this summer.  This totally makes sense as we have seen other companies that weren't known to be hardware manufacturers jump on the tablet bandwagon.  Of course Wacom makes hardware but to my knowledge never an on the go tablet.  This is great news for artists.  Wacom uses the term "dream device" and states the tablet will have "other valuable features that you haven't seen in other tablets" so who knows exactly what that could be.  Personally I'm hoping it's a high spec tab with a display that's larger than current popular tablets (after all, artists need some real estate!) and running Windows 8.  With the progression of electronics (at least in my thinking) it is much more logical to have a mobile tablet that doesn't just do one thing but is a powerful computer with full Wacom goodness built in.    I can think of many possibilities for a device such as daily activities, vacations, conventions, job duties and the list goes on.  Samsung recently bought a 5% stake in Wacom so that may have been the cash injection that Wacom needed to jump ahead into the mobile world.  I'm really looking forward to what Wacom has up their sleeve.  Come on summer!

Quick doodle

A very quick little doodle, maybe 2-3 minutes.  This is a good example of letting the pen wander over the surface till something just come out.  I was enjoying the scribble-like strokes of the hair then decided to add the jawline and the face looked like he was looking down so I made the eyes as if he was in thought or maybe playing a guitar.  My cousin suggested that it looks like Roger Daltrey and I guess it does a little but he was nowhere in mind while sketching.
