May Art Dump

Hey friends! Wow this year has been a lot so far. Didn’t realize how long it’d been since I posted some art here! So here goes, a selection of some of the things I’ve made this year so far:

Here’s some various tree-scapes I did in February. I was getting more of a handle on some new paints I’d acquired, as well as getting more used to the brushes I was using (primarily a menso brush and a small round brush). I also expanded upon the whole “neat vignette” thing by adding more of a foreground and background, even if simple ones.

In March, I continued with the landscapes, but also noodled around with some character designs and such with different pens and pencils. This in addition to playing around with ink on my paintings again.

In April, I did some more stuff — a page of various ideas I was noodling with that, at the suggestion of a friend, I turned into more of a map of various ideas and places and characters I was experimenting with. I also used a fancy Kakimori dip pen nib for some Patreon rewards, which you can see in the second picture. That thing is a blast to work with, lemme tell ya. It holds a ton of ink and gets nice line variation.

Anyway, that’s about it for this update! I hope y’all enjoyed what I was working on.

Update – 03 May 2019

Wow, jeez, it’s been over three months since I’ve updated this blog. Been a weird few months too, but it’s been relatively decent. Lemme give y’all a synopsis.

Through early Feb, I was on a great roll with art, and then through the rest of Feb and into March I was in a bit of a funk; same for with most of April. I got some work done on the game, did some good writing, and have done a few cool illustrations since then.

However, most of my time has been spent working on handling my depression better. Hence why this blog has been neglected for so long. I’ve still been posting on my Patreon every couple weeks, at least. Most of those posts end up free for the public to see, if you’d like to catch up on my activities there!

ODP Poem – “Dragon”

A green dragon with wispy yellow wings makes a silly face. It holds onto a grey-blue tree with an eye at its base. The tree is surrounded by beige stones that look like teeth.

Dragon

by Anthony Jutz

Bright as the night,
It slithers behind the moon.
 
But during the day,
It whispers in the clouds.
 
Within the atmosphere,
The world is its throne.
 
Its kingdom its own,
Ruled by none.
 
Tread lightly,
Beware the dragon’s words.
 
For where reality meets unreality,
Truth is but a wish.
 
Now go,
Go softly.
 
And breathe,
Breathe the dream.
 
The dragon calls.

Drawing Process: Dr. Petrol

Hey everyone! I figured now is a good time to post some of my current process for drawing. Today’s process is of a character I’ve been developing: Dr. Petrol. They’re part of a biological incident clean-up crew, and that’s about as far as I’m at for backstory so far.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the photos and explanations!

Art Update 22 March 2018

Wow, it’s been ages since I’ve updated. It’s been a weird year so far, art-wise. I fizzled out a bit over the winter holidays and had a real slump through most of winter and the darker months. It seems like a more low-key time of year for me.

Anyway, I’ve been continuing to develop my style and figure out my goals with art. I’m still not 100% where I want to be, but hey, it’s about the journey.

I’ve also been having some fun writing post-apoc and horror poems, so you may get to see one of those soon, too.

Without further ado, here’s some of the better things I’ve done this year so far!
