Fiery Fangs of Justice!!!

We're coming up with superhero versions of ourselves at work, and I was having the hardest time coming up with anything.

Until I threw rationality out the window and stopped avoiding the Obvious as far as the type of power I'd have. And stopped being afraid to be totally ridiculous.

And then I threw some random Latinish things together into a name.

So I give you:

And then I decided that I need to learn to paint better in Photoshop. Oh well.

EDIT: Oh yes! Stats!

*Strengths: Long attack range, high damage factor (imagine being bitten by FIRE), bonus damage vs. Grass types :P
*Weaknesses: Attacks ineffective underwater or in rainstorms. Costume subject to ridicule from the unenlightened.

Only Mostly Dead

My laptop has been randomly working every so often during the past week. Last night I was bummed because my family went back home, so (Rippy being cooperative and all) I drowned my sorrows in Photoshop.

This was what happened. I was trying to recreate an awesome lighting scheme I saw a few weeks ago, but exaggerated everything. Not sure if the exaggeration worked, but it felt so good.
This monstrosity was a warm-up drawing at work. I tried to come up with the most disgustingly cute thing possible. Anthony said it put Lisa Frank to shame, so maybe it was a bit successful.

I also have some new sketchbook fun, but that will have to wait until I get to a scanner.

Tales from the Bean

Leaping Leopard! This fella is awesome! I clearly have stayed away from the Bean too long! Mounts with... gesture?!
Leopards vs. Jaguars
If only I'd been able to fit the whole thing on the page. This fella rocks. And he was fun to shade.

I just love the motion and realism in that stupid stuffed lion!
And afterward I applied what I learned to a "leopard" I drew last week.

As a final, unrelated note... I've had the Kung Fu Panda score on loop on imeem for the past couple hours and am still loving it. 8)

And some dragony fun

Colored my favorite doodle of Hiro after dailies this week. Photoshop withdrawal is harsh.

And after work today I doodled out a little animation of the awesome dragon.

Bears 'n' stuff

This is a caricature of one of my coworkers. He actually has a very interesting face that'd I'd love to caricature for real... but this had to come first because one of the girls we work with commented that he looks like a polar bear. The resulting bear looks more like a brown bear than a polar bear, but everyone thought the likeness was pretty great.

And here's the whole sketch page. I was playing with leopards and other random animals. Oh, and Kobb thinks he can do kung fu too. Just brain drool I did while eating lunch the past couple days.

He's green. And blue. 8|

Boringest coloring job ever. I miss being able to use my tablet. :(
