Batman

OMG OMG OMG OMG IT’S FINALLY DONE!

I have NO idea how long it took me to do this. I can’t even guess for you because I didn’t want to time myself when it came to this illustration.

I wanted to challenge myself after the Dexter illustration and since I’m such a huge Batman fan I decided to do this illustration. This illustration took a lot of technical time and patience. I never realized that Batman’s armour has mesh for a lot of the movable areas.

I wanted to go with a darker deep blue pallet. I united the colours by using blue undertones within the belt and face.

And now for the main event… BATMAN!

Just to give you a closer look at some of the finer details here’s a cropped area of Batman’s belt.

I am so excited to finally be able to post this illustration. I’m very happy with the results and I’m looking forward to your feed back.

Dexter

Posted: March 19, 2011 in Realism

Hello everyone,

I have another portrait for you. This time you will likely recognize this character.

I dedicate this illustration to my brother Brandon. We both really like this show and I wanted to make him something for being such a supportive brother.

Dexter Web Doodle

I created this in photoshop again. This time I created the hair so this is a full illustration. To prove that this is an illustration and not a photograph here’s the original photo I used as a reference.

I worked very hard on this and I am so happy with the results! As it turns out when most people like to relax with a good book or tv I prefer to open photoshop and draw.

Thank you to all of my blog followers and your support. I appreciate every view, comment and message you send me. If you have a portrait of a famous individual you would like me to do leave me their name in a comment and I just might make it!

Have a great week everyone 🙂

EDIT:

The reason for the blood drop on the collar is to display his darker side. For those who don’t watch the show Dexter he is a killer that kills other killers.

When people want to display a man cheating or having an affair they place a kiss mark or lip stick on their collar. In this case I’m trying to show how he’s having that same kind of toxic relationship with his darker side.

Finally an update!

Hello everyone!

I’m sorry for not updating much over the past month (or two :/). My life has been really busy!

I’ve been struggling with the idea of continuing with the daily doodle blog. I’ve decided that I really don’t have time to do a daily doodle blog however I will have updates periodically throughout the week. I don’t really have set days yet when I know I will be able to post something so it’s still important to check back regularly to view the new updates!

I was talking to some of the blog followers and I promised that I would have something a bit bigger than usual to show. This week I’m posting a portrait of my friend Jessica. Her birthday is coming up soon so consider it an early birthday gift to her.

This was done in photoshop except for the hair. Why? Because I would probably lose my mind trying to recreate it. Everything except for her hair and background is digitally painted.

Enjoy and it’s good to be back 🙂

EDIT:

I have had some people ask to see the original photograph.

jessica Photo

This is the photograph I took in the studio while attending college. I decided to illustrate this because her birthday is coming up. I will likely start to illustrate more of my own photographs in other ways.

If there are any other questions please feel free to post them or send me a message.

New Hair Cut

Posted: January 29, 2011 in January

Well today I got my hair cut but I am undecided if this was a good change for me. Here is a picture of my old hair cut.

Old Hair Cut

And this is my new hair cut.

Obviously the first image is a better picture. But as you can see the bangs are much different. What do you think? Was it a good idea to get the bangs done this new way or should I have stuck to my old hair cut?
