TOMBO Brush Pens

Di gave me a TOMBO brush pen to play with yesterday and I think I'm in love with it. I feel kinda stupid that I never used them before. These things are an illustrator's best friend. They can fill page area quickly and can provide both accurate and robust lines with minimal effort. The line quality is far better and faster than anything that a Photoshop brush can do. Here are some doodles that I did with it:

Ninja!



What started as a warm up sketch turned into a day long project. This one's definitely more in the vein of video game concept art and I worked in a lot more detail and shading. I realize there isn't much of a background . Maybe I'll redo it later.

Christmas in November

Here's some work that I did for the lovely Brittany Biggs. She hired me to paint props and backgrounds for an animated music video that she's directing. It's a Christmas themed song and should be complete later this month.

I'm having a dragon for tea time

A character study that I made a quick and dirty color test for:



He's a little prissy, and a little over weight, but he makes good company and enjoys a nice cup of tea.
