Ninja power !!!

I tried out Photoshop this time and am quite happy with the final piece (might add some colour), even though it might be hard to se that it's me, but the construction is underneath there, I promise ;)

Ahoy Pirates !

Join Me in battle with sneaky Ninjas!!!

Help me guard the rum supplies !!!!

Aye :)

Ninja ideas

I did some quick sketches today of different ninja poses I thought might work. (I didn't quite know that much about it, so thought I'd do some research.) I haven't put in the self portrait in any of them – which will be an interesting considering i only have the eyes to work on. Please suplement with some more ideas!

Self Portrait Challenge #4: Ninjas vs Pirates

I know people have been busy the last couple of weeks, moving back home for the summer, annecy festival happening and so on. So there was a slight extension to the challenges, BUT NO MORE!

This topic ends on the 3rd of july.

Are you a pirate, or a ninja? What team wil you join in this epic showdown, join either side and make your selfportrait as fearsome as possible. Afterall you can't let the other team win :D PS! No blank paper stealth ninjas allowed.

Only 70?!

Here are two late, 'bleurgh' entries for last week. One, a quick small, silly sketch I did upon my return from wonderful Annecy late yesterday, and I wanted to try the brush pen again today on a larger scale.
Messy, angry, old... and out of ink :p

Emily Anemone

Silly doodling! ^

Okay, so this is late (again! Sorry Erik for making all these posts unorganized). Like the last portrait, everything was done with photoshop, quite messily I may add. I didn't want to draw myself as an actual merged creature, so I decided to be in the background as an anemone instead!

here it is!
not sure if i'm going to finish it or not , coz i'm quite tired of this work already...
i'll c...
actually i missed the monarch competition and decided to catch up so i used both our topics in 1 image- mermaid - queen :D
i'm planning to add some more cool posh cloths on her and maybe throne so she'll more look like a proper queen but i'm quite sure i'll be too lazy to do that...

Self Portrait Challenge #3: Aged-Self

Posting this a bit early, as I'm leaving for Annecy. Keep posting guys, you're all very inspiring! :D

Description: Imagine yourself waking up one morning and suddenly you're 50years older. Draw yourself as an old person, focus on the face, add wrinkles, gray thin hair, and so on. Try to think about how your own facial features would develop over time.
Start date: 6th of may
End date: 13th of may

This next round focuses more on the face than the last one, really looking forward to see your contributions!

p.s. When posting add labels, at the bottom of the post there's an option saying "Labels for this post", press show all and the current once should show up below. Just click the once that fit the post, easier to look through at a later time then. Cheers all!

can I has jellyfish?

Had two hours to kill, so woopwoop. I might work this up at a later time, but for now.. hooray.. octopusErik.. used photoreference for this one, I still struggle with likeness >_< I think I need to exaggerate moooar

Shock me like an electric eel...

Managed to get this done before tomorrow's departures :]

Had some really exciting ideas for this theme! Enjoyed looking into it, then was a little disappointed that I ended up doing a portrait without much narrative. So I did try again, but I still couldn't quite realise my thumbnails. Ah well, fun project :)

The scanner I'm using had a bit of light leak, so some lines were lost in all the white, and the contrast had to be pumped.

Have a great week everyone, I'll see some of you in France,

Up on the shore they work all day,
Out in the sun they slave away,
While we devotin',
Full time to floatin',
In Annecy :p
