Death Angel?

Sorry I have been so MIA. I have been trying hard to throw my resume's out there and find a job, because I really need one. $80k in debt and no job is kinda stressful. LOL I have an interview/meetup tomorrow for a graphic design position lets hope for the best. So here is what I have done so far. What I need to do is:

-Tweek some chains so it attatches
-add volumne to the clothing(that hasn't been done yet)
-Add volumn to the scythe (also hasnt beendone yet)
- More detail work
-Add highlights and the moon.

That is all I can think of for now...I hope things settle down and I can work on some more art. ~_~

Redo Progress

Worked another 3-4 hours on this. Getting layout going and design aspects into a direction that I like. Been trying to tweek the background because it had a TON of red in the image. Coming up will hopefully be the final for this image next to the image I made in 2005! It will be exciting!

Blast from the past

ACH! COVER YOUR EYES! No haha don't. No that is not an illusion. 6 years ago the image to the left is how I used to draw. Typcial anime style with huge eyes and all my characters had this sad expression. Yadda yadda yadda. I think it is important that people see where artists (Especially ones they look up to) see that at one point or another, they also had problems and terrible drawing skills. I am also using this as a refresher to myself that I have improved and that I am better then I was. This sketch took about 10 minutes once again late start. I also did a resume on monster that took FOREVER! ARG! Glad that is over! Tomorrow you will see this piece again...minus the terrible drawing. That will come back when it is finished. :)
