Fox Illustration (Work Stuff)

I can't let almost a month go by without a post! Criminal!

I've been a bogged down with work, but I wanted to post a website mascot that I just finished as it counts as an illustration and proves that I haven't forsaken my wacom.

I'm almost finished with the prize for my subscriber contest winner, and that one has a video! Fun fun.

YouTube 250 Subscribers Contest

To show my thanks to all my YouTube subscribers, I'm holding a contest for a free digital painting/process video similar to what I created for AnnaTheDream.

The contest is open to everybody, and in order to win, you have to take a screenshot of my YouTube Channel saying that I have 250 subscribers and be the first person to email it to me at chris [at] chrismickens.com.

YouTube Video: Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator Pen Tool Tutorial

I've been a little backed up on the art front, but I finally managed to make the real-time tutorial video for the Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator Pen Tool. I demonstrate a couple of methods to ink linework using the pen tool as well as the function of the anchors, handles and control lines that influence the b├ęzier curve.

Enjoy!

Morena Baccarin as Anna

Morena Baccarin as Anna from ABC's V
I'm getting a little invested in the ABC "V" remake and it's mostly because of Morena Baccarin's Anna. I always thought she was cute in Firefly, but then she cut her hair and notched herself up in my estimation. Now we can bask in the glory that is her neck!

Colors to come.

Buddha Finished


I managed to finish my Buddha painting, so enjoy this horribly lit picture with a bit of my living room furniture.
