Crayonaut: line work

A while back when I had just finished my Power Ranger Valentine, I found out my very talented friend Ander ( http://www.crayonaut.com and http://zaratus.deviantart.com/ ) was also big on Sentai/ Power Ranger stuff.

I was really excited when Ander suggested about doing a collab based on his alias "crayonaut" based on crayons + sentai/power ranger + robot.

So here's the line work that I did.  I've been always been blown away by his art, so I'm looking forward to see what he does with the line work!
(make sure you check his sites!)

Robin Mitchell Collaboration

Inbetween work its nice when you can dabble on a few things.. just to change it up.
Robin Mitchell had posted some sweet line work, which you can find here.

After telling him how much I loved his line work, I had found out he had no plans in colour it.
But then said I could take a stab at it.

So here's my take on colours for Robin's artwork

and make sure you vist his website http://www.robinmitchell.ca/

happy valentines

 I modified the last post to give it a little bit of valentines feel to it.

A little bit of animation.





















Just another quick post for some pixel art.
I thought I would give it a shot

Space Baby Valentines

I really really wanted to do 2 pieces for Valentines. One kind of fun and retro and one baby cute and retro.
Unfortunately I'm runng out of time...  and work is getting kind of hairy.
I rather not rush this piece.

Actually the main Baby is something I dug up from my sketchbook circa 2003. Totally forgot about it until someone had pointed it out to me.
At the time "floating babies from space" was the concept given to me from a friend of a friend (Pat a very tallented designer.. I can't remember his last name.. this so long ago).
But anyways... thought I dig it up and try to polish it up and redesign it some. I hope to finish painting at some point.

Heart vs Break: Happy Valentines

I had this finished a little while back but I hadn't much time to post it up
But this is my homage to Sentai, Henshin japanese style (power rangers, kamen rider)
 My goal for this piece was to play around with lighting. and how some objects are transparent and how they glow when backlit.

Hope you have a  Happy Valentines 
(feel like forever since I've posted anything :P )





here's a WIP I manage to save progress shots and make a animated gif
