“Perhaps there’s a cosemetic solution. Some more lipstick.”

New make up!

This was a lot of fun to do. sculpted the prosthetic on a cast of my face from a couple of years ago. I did my negative mold today, then poured in the silicone to create these custom fit prosthetic pieces. These were inspired by Pam’s make up this season on “True Blood.” Her rotting face was WONDERFUL and I knew I had to do it. This was the first attempt today, and will be refined until I’m happy. I’m thinking of making the cheek piece that can be torn off as well.

The silicone came from a company called Brick in the Yard. They’re a wonderful, super helpful company. Be sure to check out their stuff at www.brickintheyard.com.

 

Enjoy.

You can find more horror make up here.

 

Let’s Hear it for the Girls!

More new artwork.  All featuring girls (some of the naked, so you’ve been warned.)  Check ’em out!

More New Art!

Here are two pieces I created with those copic markers I talked about previously.  You may or may not notice, but these have definitely been inspired by the artwork of Adam Hughes.

Mara Jade!

Mara Jade is one of my favorite characters from the Star Wars universe.  The moment I read Heir to the Empire, I was hooked.  It’s only fitting that I do her justice with some awesome fan art.  And I see no better piece to for a semi-walk through.

From pencils to  inks to colors:
This is just a super rough walk through to give you an idea of how I work.  The Pencils are rough, as I figure out the pose and proportions.  I also rough in highlights, to give myself and idea of the light source.

I using the inking stage to take that even further, and add depth and shading.

I color in photoshop.  I first make the ink a new layer, in which I delete all the negative space.  The magic eraser is your best friend here.  I throw in some rough colors on a new layer under the inks.  Then I refine.  I also go back to the ink layer and change my lines to soften the image.  It’s a lot of just playing around and seeing what looks best.  The final step is adding the water mark.

The Paynes’ Asylum

comic, panel, work in process, page, victorian dresses, crows, nurse, insanity

Welcome to the asylum.  This dark graphic novel follows Doctor Paynes’ attempts to confront and control the darkness in all of us. But in this house in the hollow, one can never trust their own senses.

Written by Karl Custer, drawn, colored, and lettered by me.  Check out Karl’s own site at http://www.uncleyo.com/

The following are some screen caps.  If you want to see more, spread the word about this delightfully dark tell. Hopefully you’ll be able to follow the good Doctor from your local book store.

Died Blue

This was a portrait study done the summer of 2008.  I wanted to attempt a portrait that was reminiscent of the Victorian Era.  I used a reference of myself for the lighting, but mostly she is drawn from my imagination.  She was a practice for my painting skills, and is still one of my favorite pieces.
