Wow, Dick Tracy villains were a weird-looking bunch!

Yep, they sure were.

I told you I couldn’t stop drawing these Psychonauts characters (designed by the excellent Scott Campbell). This time we have two of the main villains of the game and Lily, the pseudo-girlfriend of the main character, Raz.

Ha! Love the Psychonauts ones. Boyd is my favorite. "I am the milkman. My milk is delicious."

Apparently Psychonauts characters are a weird-looking bunch, too! I love the focus on the dripping brain! They seem so... pleased.

stuff looks good, Seth!

NOW! my favorite is the EYES. i can see that as a poster or print!

i was thinking if you wanted it color i would put a little bit of white in it arond the eyes and do the background a flat color. i was thinking like from the 60s or 50s french animation colors. a dark neutral pink or blue.

Hey, thanks, guys! That's interesting, Ed... I might have to do that! A lot of people seem to enjoy that one.

A couple more...

Ok, I think I got the Psychonauts bug out of my system for awhile. Above you can see Linda, the supposedly horrible monster that lurks within the lake at the psychic camp in the game. When you go inside her head, you discover that she really is more scared of you than you of her, as you become a giant Godzilla-like creature that is terrorizing the peaceful citizens of Lungfishopolis.

At our last sketch night, we drew each other as classic monsters. Here's my version of my friend Randy Rustin as Frankenstein's monster...

One of my students and I are having a drawing challenge. He printed off reference photos of three actors and we’re both going to draw each of them as zombies. First up is Jon Heder as the immortal Napoleon Dynamite. Stay tuned for a couple more…

Thanks, guys! I appreciate it.

Tigers have got to be my favorite animal to paint/draw. Those angular stripes and the simple colors are just so graphically pleasing. This is an attempt to watercolor really loosely and then go in with a brush pen fairly tight over that. The other day I just got the urge to paint something and had tremendous fun with this piece!

Comments and critiques welcome!

:shock: These tiger drawings are just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

The perfect balance between loose and tight rendering is beautiful!
