Kamille, 2016, In Progress, Insights

You’ve probably by now seen a lot of my in progress shots and how the works are created. I wanted to go a little more in depth and talk about some of the technical aspects of creating a work such as this one. Here’s the completed work, for reference of course: There were a few

Ghosts, Convolution, & Undeniability

“Ghosts, Convolution & Undeniability”, 2016 In Progress Shots

I had this idea for a triptych… It took me a while, but I wanted to do something with transparencies, the end result being some PNGs that could be overlaid onto one image and make an entirely different image. The full name of the work, the final composite piece seen as the very last image,

Corpses (A Fear Of) Animation

Corpses (A Fear Of), 2016, Animation & Character Cards

Anyone who follows me on my blog on Tumblr knows for some reason I’ve been really getting into some small looping animations, whether it’s the blinking of an eye as seen in my Worlds series, or the shifting of smoke, or even the drift of snow, as seen below. I took a break away from

Untitled Azra Quick Sketch

New Video: Timelapse, Untitled Quick Sketch

This isn’t exactly a polished or completed work by any means. I set out originally to do a true “speedpaint” (when you draw a picture as quickly as you can) out of a sketch I had that I liked a lot. Unfortunately I took a little longer (about 3 hours) than I intended, but I

Hypnopompic Hallucination, worked in a bit

Hypnopompic Hallucination, 2016, In Progress Shots

My original character Azra, as you probably know him through a lot of the personal works I’ve created, struggles with a lot of byproducts of PTSD (Including a lot of anxiety and a variety of other mental tics and symptoms). One of those is struggles is insomnia. It’s more of a reluctance thing. As with anyone who

Ungezahmt First Capture

Ungezähmt, 2016, In Progress Shots

Often times I think of characters of mine who so happen to fall into the category of “vampire” as more of wild beasts. They’re more like animals than anything; they act more as nocturnal carnivores rather than insatiable blood lusting beings. This may lend a lot to the idea that these characters dislike being called

Neverending Sketch

Neverending (This Isn’t Over), 2015, In Progress Shots

You may recall this deck from my Decks gallery. It’s been there since 2015 when I created it, but I posted a lot of in progress shots to Instagram but never really posted it anywhere else. I just posted to Behance with it, so hey, why not share here, too? Here we go. I had

Filled in Sketch

Bisecting, 2016, In Progress Shots

This work was an interesting one and was a lot different from what I usually do. I started with this idea of two people making up the majority of a third person. I wasn’t sure how to go about it, so I started sketching some ideas. A big thing I had in mind was a

Anxiety, 2016

Anxiety, 2016, In Progress Shots

I’ve been really into coming up with highly detailed drawings lately, as you can see with works like “Decomposition” (2015), and “Neverending (This Isn’t Over)” (2015). For some reason, despite the fact that I can get fidgety working on these, I like putting in the effort and pushing myself to slow down. I also have

Azra Animation

Azra, 2016, Process Gif

While I was working on getting some sketches down for a new digital series, I decided I wanted to make sure I had something nice and new for 2016. I decided to draw a picture of my character Azra, similarly to the way I drew him in January of 2015. I started with a colored
