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?

Black and Buu...

Once again, I know little to nothing about Dragon Ball Z.  What I recall is that everybody is raging mad all the time and fighting.  I recognize the characters as Dragon Ball but I couldn't tell you their names.  Patrick suggested this guy and it seems he changes forms or something?  I dunno.  Dug the tentacle head.

I've been told that I've drawn Piccolo.  And that he's something of a bad-ass. Despite the name.  That's what I've been told.

A great topic choice from our 1st Prize Winner of the Denver Comic Con 2013 Timberline Scavenger Hunt, Mike Hixson! Years ago I got sucked into this show, I think when they were fighting Frieza. If that show knew how to do one was extremely long, drawn out, dramatic pauses. Soooooo long. But they had a way of doing a cliff hanger that made me come back week after week.
Here's my drawing of the ultimate hero, Goku!
