First Fanart - Samus

So recently I decided to do fanart... which I have never done before. I chose to do Samus, my Smash Bros. character, and I think it turned out alright. The bottom one is what happened after I desaturated the image and forgot I had only one layer selected... and it ended up looking real cool. I'm gonna have to try my hand at some more characters!

Reptiles and Rodents

Here are a few of the previous sketches painted in photoshop. I really had fun with these, and painting is a lot easier if the underlying structure is there. I'm gonna have to do more of these!

Sketchbook Characters

So now that school is all over, I started to do a lot of sketches of characters, primarily animals. I was trying to really focus on structure, with a Preston Blair influence... since I had his book lying around, and all other books were packed up. I think I finally got to understand structure in drawing characters, which is a shame since next year is all 3D. But I'm sure it will still help! Here are some pages from my sketchbook.
