Paw: Quail Killer!

Okay, so once I went to dinner with my grand father, Paw, and I ordered Quail. And... it turned out to be around $500... so since then it has been the Christmas tradition to exchange quail themed gifts. 2012 he got me pickled quail eggs and I drew him this:

This last Christmas He gave me a quail chew toy.
I drew this.

Here are some Thumbnail sketches working out the idea.

I only gave Paw the framed inked line art, but I had scanned it before hand so I colored it in photoshop. I really enjoyed it!

Final Drawing in Sketchbook #2

I just filled up my second travel sketchbook with my three pens that I started working with at the Chick-fil-A I work at.

Travel sketchbook #1 ran from: May 28, 2012 - August 5, 2013

Travel sketchbook #2 ran from: August 9, 2013 - January 1, 2014

Im actually too busy today to start my next sketchbook, but also I cant find this same brand. its a Pentalic, but I looked at the website and they don't seem to make this style any more so Ill be making the switch to moleskins. however I really want to use microns in a moleskin... Oh look at me complaining about paper... oh well here is what you came here for... a sketch.

These are the three pens I exclusively use in my travel sketchbooks, they are "PILOT EasyTouch MED" big thumbs up from me.

Making Monsters

First off... Happy New Year!

Most people have a negative connotation attached with the word monster... I however have a creative connotation! This year I have asked several people to describe monsters/aliens, both friendly and scary, and I have gotten some really fun results!

First let me share the process.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3 and 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

It was interesting to see that some people immediately told me their monster like they were looking at it that instant, while others I actually had to ask them the 7 steps to get them to their creation. A few people even named their monsters.

2013's Results

So there you go... What is your monster? comment a description and Ill draw it!
