I like playing with different graphic techniques. Some of what appears on here is done for work, and others, just whatever pops out of my head and lands on the screen. I don't imagine myself a fine artist by any means, but I do try to have fun with my work!

I will happily trade llamas for llamas.

I'm a fan of Steampunk and Dieselpunk, both as visual and musical aesthetics.

Ariel: Queen of the Seven Seas by abelundercity
Ariel: Queen of the Seven Seas
She's Atlantean royalty who talks to fish, so why the hell not?  The original story of The Little Mermaid is something of an epic screwjob on the unnamed title character, so anything I can do to make Ariel a touch more badass, I'll probably do. :) 

More doodling with Manga Studio.  I'm getting better with it, but as always, more practice is called for.

Aquaman is owned by Warner Brothers
Ariel the Little Mermaid is owned by Disney
Ivy by abelundercity
I think I'm getting the hang of this DAZ Studio stuff.  I made this rendition of Poison Ivy specifically for Twitter, as part of the Poison Ivy League effort to convince DC Comics to give her her own book.

As usual, Ivy is built from freebies.  Her tree with its lovely vine-tentacles is the voracious Ya-Te-Veo by ancestorsrelic. Her outfit is from the Corset and Collar set by Rick Bridenbaker, her skin is from Moreen the Dryad by Lost Souls, and her hair is Amarseda Hair by AprilYSH (no longer a freebie, though it was briefly offered by DAZ as one as part of a larger package).  Ivy herself is a Victoria 4.2 figure.
Singer redux by abelundercity
Singer redux
New angle, lowered the intensity of the spotlight, changed up the pose a bit.

I freely admit that, after a certain point, I have no idea what I'm doing, hahaha.

More playing around with DAZ Studio.  Honestly, I didn't (consciously) plan for her to come out looking a bit like Karen Gillan.
Eleven by abelundercity
So I just came into possession of Manga Studio 4 EX and played around with it a bit.  The difference is noticeable from programs like Inkscape or GIMP.  Undeniably, MS conveys the feel of drawing on paper.

So as with when I first got my Wacom, I broke in the new program by doing a portrait of the Doctor.  OK, so Marvel won't be knocking down my door anytime soon, but with time and practice, I think I've finally found the right tool for the job.

I do have to watch that pressure sensitivity though.  Or maybe I can tweak it.
