Ahhh! I'm 29 today!!!

Today's my Burfday. And what's the fist thing I do? Post up a sketch! Does anyone else feel the ever-looming pressure of the age 30? Like when you were young... did you dream by the time you reached 25, you would've gotten your superpowers and would've saved the world a few times already?

Haha, well here's a sketch with a theme I'm tossing around: Chicks with bad-ass monsters. Hopefully I'll get to drawing more on this theme on our tuesday night draw nights. Painted version will come soon. (Maybe not too soon...)

Man.. I suck at posting. Can you believe that posting regularly was my new years resolution?

Hey everybody! Thanks for all the great comments and info on the cintiq! I think I'm going to save up and get the big one.

I was told by my good friend that I should do artwork on the side -that's just for me. I always knew I should... and lately I've been burning out... and I think the only way to get back to the joy of art is by finding my own reasons why I do it. I know that probably doesn't make sense for the rest of you artists because art is something that you'd be doing with or without reason... just because you're passionate about it. But for me... somewhere down the line, I've gotten a bit lost. So hopefully, by doing art for myself, I can find my way again.

Haha! Now with that said, here's a sketch of Chun Li that I did at one of our Tuesday drawing nights!

I didn't actually remember how she looked like, so I made up my version. So don't hate me Chun Li fans. And here's a paint up of the sketch. I changed a lot of things based on some feedback from my awesome co-workers.

This is my first colored piece. And "painting" is something that I'm having a hard time wraping around my head -but I'm having a lot of fun! Any feedback would be great. Ciao!
