fishHead part 3

well I didn't get to work on it much at all again... still sick but I threw some more color in there... it's taking a bit since I originally made this at... say business card size... and I'm blowing it up and adding back in all the details so I can get it printed at 40inches wide on canvas!
Next thing to do is to add more details in there... decide on a background... and then bring it into Corel Painter so I can make it look more like an oil painting.

Alright I'm going to bed. Hopefully I can beat this icky feeling so I can get back to work.

fishHead part 2

didn't have much time to work on him... but I thought I'd post the initial sketch and where it's at now. Getting a sore throat and starting to feel a bit achy so I may go to bed here in a moment :P

Oh lordy

So I spent a bit of time working on the next installment at work for our LBillustrated blog... another caricature, and wouldn't you know it... right when i was done the person resigned! Meaning it was a waste :P

Anyway sorry I haven't posted any new pictures in a bit, my free time has been on the cartoon and a children's book. I may post some illustrations from the book, but I want to get it to a certain place before I throw it up online.

I'm still here is pretty much all I'm here to say. I'm going to post something of substance before the end of the week, until then... look at some cool images:
