The Riddler Redesign

Hey everyone,

This is a redesign I did last week for Sketch Dailies.  I took the opportunity to be more bold in regards to the redesign by taking the classic look for the Riddler and changing him to a blind, sharply dressed black man.  He is the exact same character, the only difference is his skin color and where he comes from.  I envisioned him to be of french descent.  I made a video describing the process of creation.  Hope you like it.

Overwatch - Balam

Hey everyone,

Every now and then I like to go on the sketchtheatre forums to check out the theme of the monthly contest to either get some practice or just do some fun art for me.  This month's theme was to create either fan art or your own character for the upcoming game from Blizzard called Overwatch.  It's this sci-fi first person shooter game that looks really awesome and fun to play.  So this got my creative juices flowing and a started working on some thumbnails of the type of character I wanted to create.  I have created several jaguar warriors in my day so I decided that this character would fit in this world for some reason.  I got a thumbnail I liked and I drew it on a larger piece of Bristol paper.  I had a hard time finishing up the large scale sketch but when I finally did, I added some ink to the piece.  I've been working more and more with traditional media in the last month or so.  I had some time this afternoon so I decided to color the character.  I would have loved to color it with markers but I haven't gotten them yet.  Hopefully, I'll get them for my birthday.  The coloring took some time as there was some exploration involved but I feel I finally arrived to something I am very happy with.  Hope you like it.  I'd love to see this character kicking butt in the game.





Snow White - Warrior Princess

Hey everyone,

This is a piece I created for Sketch Dailies based on a sketch I did some time ago.  I think it might have been a year ago.  I started this series called Warrior Princess where I took princesses from the classic fairy tales and drew them in armor with weapon at hand.  I took some time to color this cause I already had the sketch.  Hope you like it.

Mr Freeze Redesign + VIDEO

Hey everyone,

This is a quick redesign of Mr Freeze from the Batman Universe.  I did this yesterday.  I needed to do some art for fun.  I also got a few new subscribers to my youtube channel so I wanted to give them a little something.  I hope you like it and I hope I have the time later on this month or early next month to make a new video.

INKS & SCULPTS

Hey everyone,

I've been trying two new things this month.  I've been participating in the inktober challenge.  I haven't been as consistent as I would like but I am hanging in there trying to get used to working with inks and how little margin of error it has.  I have also started practicing sculpting on Sculptris.  I am attaching a couple of sculpts of some of my characters from Kock Fighter Club and Fight Dogs.  I'd love to see them sculpted by a pro and printed.  It would be amazing to see them on my mantle.  In the meantime, I am working on them to get used to the sculpting and to try to grow as an artist.  I've been having a blast with Sculptris.  If you haven't tried it, you should check it out.  It's free and it's available for Mac and Pc.

Fight Dogs Ink

Hey everyone,

This is a piece I worked on last night.  I came home round 7:30pm and my wife and kids were already asleep on my bed.  They had a long day with loads of activities so I had some time by myself.  I put on some movies and started to sketch out some ideas.  I finally came up with something that I liked and started to work on the larger sketch.  It took an hour for the exploratory sketches, an hour for the final sketch, and another hour for the inking.  Hope you like it.

Super Hero Sketches

Hey everyone,

Lately I have been into drawing my take on famous superheroes.  I've been having fun drawing these.  For the most part I have been using this new brush I have found that is great to sketch with.  Hope you like these.

DESERT RIDER SKETCH

Hey everyone,

This is a quick sketch I worked on today as I awaited for client feedback.  I went on the gnomon workshop forums and this was the contest of the month.  I liked the idea and I started working small with the lasso tool and the gradient tool.  These are two of my favorite tools to work with as it helps you focus on large shapes and not get bogged down by details.
I am very happy with how this came out.

Even more @Sketch_Dailes Sketches

Hey everyone,

These are some images I posted on the @Sketch_Dailies twitter group.  I wanted to create something with a more finished look.  The other images I had previously created were more sketchy in general.  I hope you like them and I will post more once I have them.

More @Sketch_Dailies Sketches

Hi everyone,

Here are a few more sketches made for the Sketch_dailies group on twitter.  I haven't been so consistent recently because I've been working on my graphic novel.  I had to finish a fight sequence between Attila Dahen and Baby Chick.  I will add more as I go.  I had fun working on the Muppet version of McCluck.  I think he would look great as a Muppet.  The Leprechaun one was cool as well.  Hope you like them.
