Just some sketches. I've been doing on the side. Haven't had much time to draw, lately. I'm eventually going to redo the lady on the top left in PS, but for now its back to course work. 
Sorry about the weird shadows on the traditional stuff. Lid on my scanner wouldn't shut all the way.

Bit of an update here. Found a really cool apartment for the year. That combined with a car means total independence (which is pretty sweet). I'm also going into my second year of college. First year of a 3 year animation program. I'll be fairly busy, but the program involves a lot of drawing, so I'll hopefully be able to upload the prettier stuff up on DA. 
Like I said, busy times ahead, but things are definitely looking good. :)

Hope you're all doing alright. Sorry i never really updated my journal. Just didn't have anything new to say about myself. And as for strangers who've stumbled on to my humble corner of DA, well now you know a bit about my private life. :D

DND Speedpaint by DreadHaven
DND Speedpaint
A few days ago i went to my regular Dungeons and Dragons group as is my weekly routine. However, not enough people showed up for the normal campaign. So my friend the DM organized a one night campaign. What followed was a very bizarre horror mystery plot where our party of 5 were stranded in an Inn which had been frozen in time by a demon. Eventually, the demon allowed us to leave (after loosing 3 members) and my character along with my friend's mage emerged from the Inn (which was discovered to be an old ruin) 

So to sum everything up, this is what i imagined the end to be. Two companions, tired from being toyed by a demon, making their way back to civilization through the swamps, casting weary eyes at the shadows all the way. 

This was more just practise for environments, which i desperately need. I know it's not good, and i still have a long way to go. I was just tired of not having any interesting backgrounds on my drawings.

Drawing I did for a long time friend of mine here on DA. The character is actually a redraw of something i did a year or two ago.
Quite pleased with how the skin turned out on this one. Any tips on how to improve are welcome.

Dwarves of Strengthwounds: Grimble by DreadHaven
Dwarves of Strengthwounds: Grimble
A while ago, I played a succession game of dwarf fortress with a fellow deviant :icondanvzare:  
We built a nice little fort named Strengthwounds. But things quickly went south. Goblin invasions, human invasions, giant creatures, forgotten beats, and finally a demonic invasion. In true Dwarf Fortress fashion, these events brought out the best, and worse amongst the dwarves.

'Grimble' Tombbest was the expedition leader, turned mayor, turned baron of the fortress. He was an awesome miner and mason, and was 
instrumental in rooting out a vampire which had been targeting other members of the founding 7. He ruled the fort until demons overran the militia. In the end, he was one of the few survivors to seal themselves off in a statue garden. Despite digging to a underground lake and finding some plants to eat, everyone else went mad, and thus the fort was abandoned. 

Took a long time with this one. Had fun experimenting with brushes and such. Would have liked to polish it off a bit more, but it's been a long time coming, and I really need to move on to another drawing. 

If any of you don't know the game Dwarf Fortress, you should definitely check it out.
