Mr. Sensitive, 8-bit and some Works in Progress
Mr. Sensitive/Orphan is one of my favorite superheroes ever. Check him out in the best fun of X-Force and then later in X-Statix.
This is an illustration for Guide magazine. The article is about a kid going to see his friend at a barn. On the way he passes a tree and his mother at his home. I tried to go for some generic 8 bit stuff here, mixing Super Mario Bros. with PacMan. It was really fun working in pixels this way. I used photoshop set at a really low resolution and size to create this.
I'm still messing around with Painter. This is a work in progress. I'm using the acrylic brushes and I'm finding that the end result isn't very different from my exercises with acrylics in college. I also remember why I stopped using them as well.
A sketch for a new avatar.
I'm working on a website redesign and this is how I have my header right now. I would appreciate any critiques on this how it is now. I would like to make any necessary art changes now, before I start trying to make this work in a website.
If you visit Kalamazoo, go eat at Taco Bob's. Trust me. (Please excuse the gross facial stubble, this was a few days after Thanksgiving.)
