Old Iron man sketch




I found this sketch I did last year of Iron man. It's a little old but I though I'd post it anyways. I'm no longer going to have a sketch portion in my website. I'm going to leave all my sketches for this blog from now on, and hopefully also include more "behind the scenes" looks at some of the pieces I do.

Its been a long time...





Story boarding is fun but it has completely consumed me. Now that I'm starting to get a better grasp of time management, I'm trying to get back into working on revamping my site and portfolio. In the meantime here's some digital sketches, done daily for warm-up, and combined for your viewing pleasure.
Also, peep the self-portrait and the Archer (FX) sketch i did in my style. Archer's coming in January!

Archer on FX

video

Here's the promo that has been airing on FX for the new show Archer. I'm one of two storyboard artists for the show. Some of the beginning is part of the pilot episode for which I was still working on as Illustrator. I helped out with the turtleneck sequence by drawing the bodies and the duffel bag, including the zip line scene. Can't wait to find out the premier date to announce it to the world!

Bigger version here.

Collabo' #1

For those that may not know, I work at a studio in Atlanta that is FILLED with talented artists. So many artists in such a small space (sort of) that all our creative juices makes the place get hot as hell. Literally. I'm blessed to be working amongst all these other creatives and I've decided that I would start going around and hitting people up for collab work. I did this sketch of beast boy, which I've sent off to get inked by a co-worker, and now I'm anxiously waiting to get it back at a whole nother level. Ill post the inks when I get them with a link to the artist (if they permit) and hopefully pass it off to another coworker for the color drops. Im thinkin this lil' collab-projects idea of mine is gonna turn out hella interesting and hopefully kick some major creative juices into hyper-drive.

Digital Sketchbookin'


Drawing all week at work on the nice and spacious Cintiq has rekindled my love for my ol' school wacom tablet at home. Im starting to sketch digitally more, trying to layout my sketches as i would on a physical sketchbook: in the most random and weird ways. I guess that's reflective of the spurts of creativity. Also, im trying to leave the little thumb nails and doodles that also appear on my actual sketchbooks. I think there is something to be said in all this digital sketches vs. physical sketches dilema, but I think that's another blog post for another day.

Character design


These are some sketches of the character design for a 3 page sequential story (more of a teaser) that im doing for my comic book portfolio. Looosely based on a younger cousin of mine.

Bastion's 7: Kuta

Aight this is my first sketch for the Kuta contest over at cheeks blog. I think I might do another and see which one to finish up inking and coloring. His designs are a-mazing...had a lot of fun doing the costume an all.

The rose that grew from concrete

Finally got around to finishing the Tupac piece. Decided to finish the back of the head and change the composition up a bit. Gonna show it around before putting it in the ol' portfolio.

Clone Saga Cover

Wow I'm all over the map with projects. I just had a creative explosion and now I'm trying to finish all the pieces that I have started. Here's an unfinished cover I'm working on for a submission packet to Marvel. Can we say clone saga? Anyone? Btw the strings from the puppets is missing. I'm thinking it'll make more sense once I finish coloring it.

2pac piece

I'm working on re-building my portfolio. I just got tired of seeing most of the stuff I have up. So I started with a portrait of Pac. This is my first run at the colors. I'm going to show it around and see what feedback I get. I definitely want to do something about the back of his neck and I'm still not sure about the floating head. How will it turn out? Who knows. The suspense keeps me up at night.

More SF!!!

I keep drawing more SF characters lately, yet the funny thing is I don't have an Xbox with SF4. I just really hope they make a wii version. I'd be all over it.

Card Submission Figure

Fully rendered figure for a card submission I worked on. I fixed some things from the previous version (like the huge head I drew at first...how did i miss that?) I'll post the fully finished version as soon as I get cleared to. In the meantime, I slapped on my Caicedo illustration logo. BAM!
