Real Name: Justin Castaneda
I was still new to the idea of using brush pens and I really wanted to play around with line variation. This was one of the sketches I experimented with.
I think as an artist, when you begin to try new materials and techniques you open yourself up to limitless possibilities. This sketch represents that in a way. Packing up what you need, your essentials, and just go exploring. Discover new things. Out yonder.
Hello everyone! I've been gone too long. Oh how I've missed this place.
I feel like giving, so tonight I am uploading these concepts for a character I did called Brussel Sprout. Brussel Sprout is a little Belgiam boy who is interested in art. He carries a giant portfolio on his back and paints wonderful pieces with his giant brush.
Now he needs a home. Whether it's a short story, animation, or film I think we can paint Brussel Sprout a world for him to play in. Or better yet, make HIM paint the world he plays in.
So creatives feel free to play around with this character, give him something to do. I will probably knock out some more model sheets and art for you all to work with but I'd like to see this grow into something cool.
Have fun everyone!
Hope you like!
It's been way to long since I posted but we just had our first snow here in Chicago (well after the holidays) so I thought I'd share this sketch.
Originally I wanted to draw a stone giant kissing a puppy but this idea of a giant with elements of nature and song birds seemd more whimsical
I had fun playing with my brush pen today. I love seeing the texture it brings out. Also cloud shapes are fun to mess with as long as you keep'em simple and not too busy they distract from the image as a whole.
