A recent commission that was definitely different from my usual drawing!
This was a lot of fun! I was asked to create this original character for a pen and paper game. The specifications were simple. Half Man half Banana.
I wasn´t sure which direction to go so I just looked at a couple of different Bananas and started to sketch away. The curved form made me think I really should use a more easy body language. From there it just grew to this. A few little extras for characterization and it was finished.
Done in Clip Studio Paint on my Huion Kamvas pro 13.
I´ve been working on this sketch since Batman day. Yup, I know, I’m not quite far for that time. Been doing 2 streams on Twitch while doing it. The first was all pencils which usually suck up the most time. The reason while I usually have the pencils already prepared.
The second was about inking where i corrected some small stuff. The next step will be to finish the inks. That´s when i finish the buildings in the backdrop and add light effects. Right now we don´t really have shadows in this piece so i still can decide how i want the light to be.
Talenthouse was doing another Contest sponsored by Warner where artists where encouraged to create static artwork for the Joker movie!
As you could see on my WIP image here i was going for an Oil paint look but still worked digital in Clip Studio Paint using my Huion Kamvas Pro 13 tablet.
Talenthouse is doing a lot of these contests so if you´re interestet you should check out their website and register.
If you know me just a little bit it ain´t hard to tell that the several incarnations of the Joker have always fascinated me. So when i saw this contest it was done deal to make something happen! I intended to create 3 or even 4 pieces but this painting swallowed a lot of time and i was also pretty busy with work and family so i just put everything in this piece alone.
Can´t wait to finally see Joaquin Phoenix in Todd Phillips Joker movie on October 4th!
When working digital my weapon of choice usually is Clip Studio Paint.
But i recently thought i should dig deeper into Sketchbook Pro since i have it already installed and i really like the fact that i also have it across all of my platforms.
The recent Joker trailer got me very excited for the movie and i wanted to try some color in Sketchbook pro anyway so i went with this. It´s still a work in progress but i hope i have a chance to finish this piece within the next few days!
