Some quick jobs I’m getting done for some fellow co-workers. I’m taking some time off here at the end of July into August and I plan on relaxing and focusing a bit on my artwork, focusing more on some long time jobs and hanging out with family. This was a quick gig I did for good friend of mine Cody Simshauser. He’s got a passion for doing some creative things and his latest go is a pretty tight idea for a podcast that talks about Animé while sipping some coffee (or tea). He’s got a couple of episodes up. Check them out here! ANYWHO… This is the cup of joe I designed for him. Lemme know what you think. I used AutoDesk Graphic working both on my iPad while traveling and on my MacBook Pro at home. Gotta love that cloud stuff.
A great friend of mine and full-time Twitch Creator Ezilii asked me to make an emote for her Twitch subs… I love helping her out and I was very flattered when she asked, because she’s no slouch when it comes to being an artist… Um… that’s what her degree is in… SO, anywho. Check her out on Twitch. She’s a part of a great and quickly growing community. Watch Ezillii here!!!
So I got an iPad Pro for Christmas from my wife. Was one of those things that I wasn’t too happy about, but her heart was definitely in the right place. There’s some great apps on the App Store for drawing and a good friend of mine from work it letting me borrow her Apple Pencil. (Thanks Loren!) I’ve been trying to use the iPad a bit instead of my Cintiq. I’ll admit its nice being able to sit in a nice soft cushy chair and draw digitally. (just missing Mischief)
I had been drawing some of the classic cartoon characters. I’ve got Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty from the Flintstones and my youngest son reminded me that I needed to add Dino. SO, I decided to use the iPad to draw the good ol pup.
I’ve been using AutoDesk’s Sketchbook for years and found that their iPad Version offers a time laps screen recording option. So not only did I draw Dino, I recorded the process. I didn’t bother with any commentary for the first time around, but who knows, maybe sometime in the future I’ll talk through the process or maybe just jabber…
