There is a Tai'Chi posture called "craneswings," as a martial artist, it was only a matter of time before I drew it. This is also part of my AP art portfolio (concentration: birds) Watercolor background, colored pencil crane.
...yay, another phoenix. I don't intend to upload many older pics, so don't worry. This was the day I discovered how beautiful green is. I still like this, even if I don't consider it one of my better pieces.
He's basically The Guy with the Big Club. The picture started out as a character exercise, anatomy and pose etc. Since I got a lot of critique for not having diverse enough textures, I wanted to work more on that as well. White sneakers wasn't the best choice for shoes perhaps, hehe. He's the one with bad taste in clothing though, not me. And he's quite smug about that club of his. SMASH!
I often use a more traditional painting approach to digital art, which can probably be seen on the background. It was mainly a background exercise actually, as those are very important. It's something like the spanish inquisition. The man has given up, so the Inquisitor is about to put his sword away.
This picture is of a character of mine, an elephant. He's dead now and I've always imagined he'd be in some kind of Alice in Wonderland kind of world. They're all smoking and fishing in an "Old Chap" english kind of way. I made it in Photoshop, as are all the sample images I'm using for this application.
Ah well, they're both friends really. The mouse is a pest, though. They have no tails. I figured since we evolved from apes and we don't have tails, there might be a furry universe were the furries don't have tails. Where they're all lazy, like that mouse.
"Emerald Dream" -- A green, flying dolphin.. In space! There is actually another picture that goes along with this (A red dolphin with dragon wings), but I haven't scanned it yet. I am also open for commissions. HINTTTTT. D:
A smiling Hermit Thrush. I quickly doodled this after having one visit my yard on a regular basis. I added the musical note out of silliness, and because these birds are recognized for their ethereal song--the reason for their nickname: "American Nightingale"
I've been in a major artist block for over 2 months now, not being albe to draw anything of any of importance. It was suggested that I just draw something that I didn't care about to bust out, but instead I decided to draw..me. This is my tale. Copyright Shawntae Howard
