Flaming Goodbye...

This will be my last Timberline post so I figured I would go out...BLAZING (see what I did there)!  It has been an awesome ride and it really challenged me and helped me improve as an artist.  I wish all of you good luck and I look forward to seeing all the new work posted here.

That being said, I give you the Balrog!  I love these movies and books and I am not ashamed to say that.  This scene in the movie was epic and I have always wanted to try my hand at this guy.  I don't think I have ever drawn anything from LOTR before.

Anywho,  I say goodbye and FLY YOU FOOLS!

One does not simply leave the Timberline Draw they?

Hello all,
This will be my last post on the most excellent Timberline Draw Blog. It's been a lot of fun over the past year, but I've decided to spend some time focusing on my other projects, such as The Outdoorsman. If you've enjoyed my work here on the blog, stop on over to my home website: Blaze Orange Studio, as I'll continue to post my work there.
Now here's my post for this week's topic...SARUMAN!

Good luck to all my fellow Timberliners! It's been great!

Were-tiger? No, Why-Tiger! Adventure Time fans get what I did there. Anyways, here's my drawing for the were-tiger topic week. Yeah, I'm a bit late, but the ol' day job was running me hard. Hope you like it!



Howabout a were-tigress?

I will get a good scan of this when my dad gets back. I love me some DBZ and Frieza was always one of my favs.

Super Saiyan Gohan

Gohan hitting Super Saiyan.

Went with a bit of Sean Galloway and Genndy Tartakovsky stylistic approach...hope to have this one inked and colored once I get my computer back from the hard drive repairs.  Y'all okay with an iPad photo?
