Latest Piece

fruit salad inspired illustration
"Fruit Salad"

My latest piece in the dessert inspired series, since it's still summer I figured a naturally sweet treat would be a great idea, and so I decided to use fruit salad as inspiration. I incorporated some fruits that are usually found in fruit salads: oranges, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, watermelon, and strawberries.

This was a full day's work, and I'm really glad it turned out better than I was expecting, especially all the different fruit, it took a lot of time and patience.

Man of Iron and Thor With Process shots

For these two avengers, I got to experiment with some different effects. On the Iron Man illustration, I got to work on mechanical elements, which has always been difficult for me. I'm really glad that it came out like this. The rocket propellers, were also fun to do, just by using outer and inner glow effects really made a difference.

For Thor, found a really helpful tutorial on how to create lightning effects in Photoshop. You can find it here: Lightning Effect With Photoshop. I was really pleased, with how it came out in the end.

Black Widow and Loki

I finished two more Marvels: Avengers inspired chibis. First we have Black Widow, also known as Natasha Romanoff. Played by Scarlett Johannson.


Second and probably my favorite, character from the franchise, Loki the god of mischief, as played by Tom Hiddleston. This particular illustration, ended up living up to the name, and took longer than usual to finish.

Photoshop Chibis

This summer I've been working, and so I only have so much time left in the day to make anything. And so I decided to spend any free time, I can get improving my illustration skills, in Photoshop and Illustrator. Here are my latest Photoshop drawings. 

I really just felt like drawing the avengers, and so here's the first avenger himself. Captain Steve Rogers reporting for duty.
Done on my in Photoshop using my Wacom tablet. I wanted to do a speed paint video of this, but the camera kept making Photoshop lag.
Steve Rodgers
I also decided to draw myself, at least a chibi version of myself, to use on my pages, such as: Instagram and Facebook.
