Found this image of Taurus, one of the main bad guys in the Migrayn books. I cannot believe how heavily I used Photoshop effects, lol. I think this is when I started working on different poses for my characters. When I started doing the artwork, and I am sure you will be able to tell, all of my characters were just a front side shot. No real action.
So, I am still trying to clean up the site and get used to everything. I have enough artwork to post daily for a year I think, but I want to take some time on it. No rush, as I do not want to put another heavy work item on my plate. This is supposed to be fun for me.
Stay tuned for my favorite links, fun items unrelated to my specific artwork, and some more full story lines. I found some stories of Migrayn created by me and some other talented peeps that have either never been completed or are finished and never seen the light of day.
I spent a few hours last night digging through old art CDs I had. I have not seen some of this artwork in a long time. I found this character I created in 2002 and decided to draw him again, just a quick sketch, on the spot. Here is the older version on the right.
This is not only interesting because of the difference the years make, even though I am rusty, but also the absolute newbie I was in Adobe Photoshop. It was funny to see on a lot of this older art I put affect after affect in, and it doesn’t really help the art all too much. What was I thinking lol.
Of course, I did not have the time to completely ink and color it. I love the roughness a quick sketch brings. I feel the drawing is more organic and fresh seeing all the lines that form the main image. I would love to one day create an entire short 3 or 4 page story like this.
Hope you like the image. Also, last night I threw up the epilogue of Into The Void, one of the first stories of Migrayn. Take a look.
