New look in progress

As you can see, we've undertaken a style change on the blog. Ryan, Zach, and I have been bouncing ideas back and forth and this is where we're at for now.. 

You won't really need to ask about further changes, you'll see em. ^_^

Sir LOVEJoy!

So, here it is, my finished assassin, and named Sir LOVEJoy by Mr. Kwame himself! Really tried in this one to play strongly with contrasting warm and cool lighting, and to keep myself moving fast on it. Basically the idea is that this guy's the modern day cupid, but with a bit more flair for the theatrical ;) Think Batman meets Sleepless in Seattle.

A Very Varushka Valentine

Here's my Valentine's Day Assassin folks.. 

I got stampeded by a sci-fi bug that produced this idea for my piece. I tried all sorts of new ways of shading, inking, and overall process for this one, the most foreign for me was using Illustrator to ink some of the areas. There are ups and downs to that, but with some practice, would be brilliant.

Anyway, this latex-clad, death-dealin', smack-talkin, ribbon wielding, knife throwing, Russian-born assassin came into 'existence' from the depths of my pixie-dust addled brain for the 2nd challenge.. Varushka is pleased...and so am I. :)

Powder Monkey Detail

And here's a closeup to show some detail :D

Powder Monkey

Powder Monkeys were the explosives experts/handlers on the ship - hence the mass amounts of dynamite slung over one shoulder, large bag of gun powder at the hip, and (my personal favorite) the bag full of bowling ball bombs :) T'was a greatly fun challenge me hardees - land ho!

Challenge #2 - Valentine's Day Assassins

The polls have spoken!!!

It is February folks, can you feel the love! We'll be taking on the odd, yet intriguing challenge of sketchin up a Valentine Assassin character. Because of the randomness of how this idea even came to pass, we're leaving this one open to your fruitful imaginations to come up with something sweet. The character, or characters, can be anything as long as there's something to do with both valentines (Faye, Jill, Vincent, and Ivy all count ;) and assassins in the pic. 

Is your character a deadly assassin that kills only on valentines day? Or how about a character that's been inflicted a head-shot of love by their secret assassin crush.. Either way, these should have some pretty cool stories behind them. So wind up the gears and figure out what you're gonna do.. You've got another 2 weeks and funny enough, this'll end RIGHT after the fated Hallmark holiday, Monday the 16th.
