I found this drawing unfinished in my desk yesterday and decided to finish it up and add some watercolors to it. I always loved Medusa and Lockjaw ;)
Drawing people
If you are interested in getting better at drawing I am sure that you've heard it time and again that you should draw from here is one more time. I go to a life drawing session at a local college whenever I can. I purposely draw with a blunt stick of charcoal so I can't get all noodle-y with the details and I just fill up pages.  Keeping in mind that it is just for  practice so there is very little pressure to get nice looking hope is that some of the info will stick in my brain when I am called upon to draw something out of my head on the spot. You can practice from photos too, but there is so much more to be gotten out of a real live 3d model.

Long lost Anime commish by MichaelDooney
Long lost Anime commish
I only take on commissions that I know I can turn around in a timely manner and this one definitely broke that rule. The guy won a commission auction on ebay several years ago and through lost computer hard drives and miscommunication I never got to do the art. I finally got to cross it off my to-do list at the end of 2015, whew! It is some anime character or something like that.
Maleficent inks by MichaelDooney
Maleficent inks
Here are the inks before I did the gray marker tones etc. I 'inked' the dragon and the flames with a gray marker so they would separate from her figure more and drop into the background a bit.
I never got into the whole Facebook thing personally. So if you search me, you will find a dead page. But I just set up a fan page so I can use it for show off my art to another audience. Please pass it around, I could use some eyes on it ;)…
