A hike in the jungle.

One of the things I did this summer was go on a hike in the jungle with my family.  We were in the jungles of Espírito Santo state in southeast Brazil.  The jungle in Espírito Santo does not look like this illustration, but the hike inspired me to make this drawing.  Fortunately, we did not run into any giant snakes, although our guide said one lived in the area.  I imagine it is not as big as the one I created.

Horned Monster illustration.

I’m back from vacation.  Created a few drawings while I was visiting friends and family in Brazil.  I made this drawing of a horned monster and a few other drawings I will post over the next few weeks.  I tried a different elongated body shape for the figure to fill up the composition.

My illustration of an Oni from Japanese folklore.

Here is my illustration of an Oni.  Oni are a kind of supernatural ogre like creature in Japanese folklore.  Oni are typically portrayed as hulking figures with horns growing out of their foreheads.

I took the inspiration for the face of the Oni from a photo I took at a traveling exhibit of samurai armor.  The armor is from the Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum, in Dallas, Texas.  I thought the face mask had a very Oni look.

Two dinosaurs hanging out together.

My illustration of two dinosaurs hanging out together.  I had this sketch sitting around from a few months back and I inked it in over the weekend.  They are not supposed to represent any actual species of dinosaurs.  I just made them up .

Page full of warm up doodles

This is a page full of doodles.  I used it to warm up when I was inking some illustrations.  I usually start inking something small like a face or just make lines before I put the ink down on a final illustration.  It is a good way to get into the flow of inking.
