Samurai Jack is Back

A fanart sketch of the wandering samurai in a dystopian future, seeking a way back to the past to undue the future of the evil shape shifting master of darkness, Aku.

Samurai Jack is one of my favorite shows from my childhood. It was one of the many shows that got me hooked on drawing and sketching. The art style had this mixture of action and beauty. Some scenes had this comic book like appearance with huge battles and combat. Then other scenes would be toned down to allow for more emotion, letting you take in the scenery.

So when I heard Jack was back, I decided to sketch something up. This sketch was inspired by Jack’s new look. It has been several years since Jack was flung into thw future by the evil Aku. He looks like he’s been through hell. He’s covered  in scars and rags from numerous battles. He’s ready to end Aku’s tyranny, so he can finally rest and return to his homeland in the past.

Samurai Jack belongs Genndy Tartakovsky and Cartoon Network/Toonami

The Lumi Lox

Meet the Lumi Lox, a bioluminescent dog like animal found on RealmLocke. These cute little creatures light up to ward off many of the beasts roaming in the dark. Their tails resemble a bright, shimmering torch. They emit a bright white light when in danger, disorienting any enemies to make a quick eacape. Loxes are non hostile and are known for being friendly, behaving very similar to dogs. In fact, many Lumi Loxes are kept as pets and travel companions. 
Lumi Loxes are about the size of a corgi and are apart of a species called Lumis. The largest Lumi is known to be the size of a large wolf. They are called Luminox Wolves. The Luminox is stronger, but does not constantly emit light like Loxes. They instead emit powerful flash to blind and flank any enemy.

In the Whisper of Winter

In the Whisper of Winter

A Kirin, an eastern style unicorn, dressed in a winter cloak, walking about the snow covered floor of an old forest.

Goodbye autumn, and welcome Winter. I made this sketch a while back as a farewell to autumn. I focused on drawing something with a sense of elegance and peace. The character in this drawing is based off another Kirin I drew a while back.

Awaken Spring (a Kirin in awe of the first blooms of spring)

The dress in the winter sketch has been redesigned to be longer to be more suitable for the cold and snow. Also, the character is more deer like than the spring sketch (she has hooves instead of paws).

I plan to come back to this sketch and  color it. I’ll post it here when it’s done.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m finally done with my picture for this fall/thanksgiving.

In this picture, we have a lovely canine couple enjoying a night of dancing in an autumn decorated ballroom.

I wanted to do something this year that would represent fall and/or Thanksgiving. So, I decided on an old colonial style ballroom dance. Thanksgiving kinda has the old fashion charm, so I thought it would be a perfect fit. I focused on using mainly fall based colors (oranges, reds, yellows, etc) and added other elements of fall and Thanksgiving into the décor.

I based the characters off another picture I did a while back. Their names are Lia ( collie mix ) and Andrew ( German Sheppard mix ).

Regal Autumn Ball Sketch

Two elegantly dressed Canines enjoying a lovely evening of dancing about an autumn decorated ballroom.

For this sketch I wanted to draw something that had a fall theme; something fitting for thanksgiving since it’s coming up soon. So, what came to my mind was a couple doing an old fashion dance in a ballroom. I focused on an old colonial theme for the outfits, and added bits of fall theme decor to the background.

Overall, I think this sketch turned out nicely. I’m planing on coloring it later on for this thanksgiving.

Autumn’s Happy HalloWine-een

Happy Halloween!

Autumn, the dragon sorceress, is back at another party, drinking her favorite potion, Witch’s Brew. She’s a bit tipsy again, and, “Tis Having a Happy HalloWine-een!”

Autumn is one of my old OCs I drew years ago for halloween. She supposively was going to a halloween party, and transformed into a dragon hybrid after drinking a strange potion, Witch’s Brew (a potion that causes costume transformations).

You can check out my old pic of her here http://anbumsw.deviantart.com/art/Autumn-s-Happy-HalloWine-een-643139932

Dragon Hearted Maleficent

Dragon Hearted Maleficent.

This sketch was inspired by Disney’s most notorious villian, Maleficent.

Recently I took a trip to Disney world, so I kinda got Disney on my mind. I wanted to create my own variation of Maleficent, so I redesigned her overall look. For this sketch, the dress and overall costume was designed to mirror her infamous dragon form. Overall, I really love how it all turned out.
