Here's a close up of one of the figures in the illustration. She's about 80% finished with some touch up and extra parts that need to be drawn in as well as shading to do. It's turning out really well and hopefully I won't take too long to finish up the piece.

I'm slowly working my way on this illustration. It's turning out pretty nice so far, which is a first. I normally go from cool sketch to "what the hell is this?!" colouring to "oh, that's what I wanted to do" colouring to "good, it turned out right" final.

The rain illustration is coming along well and I found my own way to create rain in Adobe Illustrator though it's something I thought of awhile ago, but never tried out. It's simple and nice and I'm thankful for the easyness of larging things in Illustrator without problems. I knew something was wrong as soon as I saw it and scale of objects in relations with each other was the key thing wrong in my mind. It's a bit of laziness, but I don't have to go back and redraw it again. The second drawing is a rough for a Halloween card for a friend. I don't think she'd mind me showing the rejected idea and I'll ask before I show the final version of the final piece though there's a bit of animation I want to try with it first.
I realized that I should post more finished stuff though I am a bit lazy once I'm finished and then I also like to save up finished pieces for website update. So here's something finished ... well almost so I guess that's a bit of a lie. I like how the leaf monster turned out with the hints of colour here and there. I still might take this into Photoshop to throw some textures onto things. I don't like how the colours of the guy turned out if only 'cause I wanted to limit the palette of him and it turned out really dull with two colours of green and grey. I think I just need one more colour to go with it.

I've been a bit slow with this piece since I've been working on a new pet project recently. For this piece, I spent the longest time just wondering if I should have kept the inked line art or redo the whole thing again in illustrator, which I ended up doing. The ink wasn't close enough for me, at least the straight line ground was all crocked. I should honestly use a ruler more for stuff like that and think before I ink. On an interesting note, I submitted an art piece and it got accepted for an art auction: Muse 2009. It's nice to do some good.
