Illustration Friday: Renewal

By way of an explanation, nothing says renewal to me like a phoenix being reborn in the raging inferno of the biggest cup of coffee you've ever seen.

As an aside, I've been hitting the decaf for a while now, and that fills me with great joie de vivre even in the absence of the typical psychoactive stimulant.

As a further aside, the city seal of my town (Portland, Maine) sports a phoenix and the motto "Resurgam," Latin for "I will rise again." That on account of being burned down four times, I kid you not.

Happy Man

Starwarsish Guy

I drew this guy a long time ago and may have even posted him, but this is a new inking and coloring. Some new tools I'm trying out...

Mushy Mummy

I made this one a while ago and meant to post it sooner. It's a little guy sculpted in ZBrush (and showing the composite of the color and shading).

Happity New Year!

Yeah, Happy New Year! I'd like to send a special message to the horrible virus that has been keeping me down for the last two weeks:
Why would you do that, you jerk? What are you, some kind of a jerk?

But I'm finally getting better. I'll be very happy when I can hear again out of both my ears and that ringing goes away, which is my final burden to bear.
