ANDREW GIBBONS SKETCHBOOK
Finished another parody image for my friends burger restaurant

Updated this character concept with a black back ground
more and more leaning towards these black backgrounds as a way to keep consistency with some pieces
have things feel cohesive and looking like a set. like im creating my own collection of characters
so this one is from 2019 and is an alternate version of a character i did in 2014

this is the original design i did
updated the background to fit in with the aesthetic im liking with my work
the grey backgrounds feel kinda bland or clinical and white is a bit too bright
this clean background full body character illustration is something that really feels like something i consistently enjoy looking at and one of the types of image i will probably keep making.

Touched up and finished a couple more portraits from MK
Did some research into the characters and decided to try and make a complete roster
I settled on 84 characters so i've got 80 left to go..
will hopefully get better at and more efficient at painting portraits by the end of them

So I did a couple more MK portraits
tried some brushes I don't usually use and they were pretty fun and got me into a good painting groove
I chose to use as a base for these two, the creators of Mortal Kombat as the two characters are strong demi god brothers
thought it would be a nice little detail to add some depth

I've got 9 pretty much done even though i plan to go back in and fix small things in all of them
so I've got 75 or so characters to go..
maybe i'll get it all done in 6 months..but hopefully sooner
Will depend what work I have come up

There is a purpose to these by the way..
I like mortal Kombat but haven't dug some of the character designs so I wanted to do my take and redesign some more than others. the newest game is pretty dope though
Then I also am using this for practice of portraiture, materials rendering and general painting skill
and I'm occasionally drawn into be a completionist so  wanna do all the characters
It's a good challenge and hopefully will also have some positive growth as far as getting my work out in front of people

this last one was just a couple hours messing around and experimenting with brushes and colour
Kai Greene retweeted it on his twitter which was cool :)

Dump of some more recently finished stuff, i'll add some process stuff sometime, and more sketch things,
I just haven't been doing much besides finished polished pieces lately..
I'm looking forward to studying a bit more and getting more drawing practice in after comic con this weekend,
but  also have 3 client pieces due this month, which I am thankful for having even though I'm pretty burnt out too
anyway.. some more MK stuff

some more symbiote stuff.. both ongoing series I'm just going to add to as time allows

[Image: andrew-gibbons-gwenom-solo900-censored.jpg?1559779307][Image: andrew-gibbons-scream900-censored.jpg?1559781998]

worked on this Logan piece some more.. happy enough to call it done now.. on to the next one
sometimes hard to stop going back in and fixing shit
I have a sometimes enjoyable process but inefficient as.. need to develop polishing skills like Apterus, so good at controlling his pieces look but also goes through so many changes.. all adds up to the final result though so have to appreciate that side of it

[Image: andrew-gibbons-old-man-logan-fix900-0506...1559771500]

and worked up this piece that started much smaller and grew and grew..

[Image: andrew-gibbons-alien-universe900-0606201...1559794910]

My brain is in need of some down time but I've got 2 days of sitting and talking to people at Comic Con.. oh man..
wish me luck everyone not reading this lol
hope you are all keeping up the good progression and pushing through the pain of improvement
