Finals WIP - little bit of process

I'm working on an illustration for school, and here's what I've got so far. I plan on using this as a back (lol) cover for a comic I'm putting together.

After doing some thumbnail sketches in photoshop, I settled on this one. It had a creepy and somewhat depressing feel to it that I thought was appropriate for the main character of the comic. Plus I've been obsessed with drawing trees lately.

 Then I did a pencil drawing after putting some reference together. I still hate the way I draw pants and shoes, always the same.
 Finally (today) I started on a value study with simple warm-light/cool-shadow. This is the work in process. I don't like the background trees I've painted on the left side, so I'll probably mess with them. The dude's face is also very sloppy right now. I haven't developed a style when it comes to drawing characters so I'm undecided on how I actually want the alcoholic dude to turn out.
Anyways, thanks for looking.

It's been a while!

So it's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy and dealing with some life-complications as well. BUT things seem to be coming together again.

Here is my second assignment for still-life oil painting. I'm really liking painting, it's making my drawing better in the sense that I understand form better.

Character design for digital illustration 2
A little illustration I had fun with.
Been playing with drawing digitally, a little awkward but getting used to it.

And here are some random doodles from imagination and not being able to sleep last night!
Thanks for checking out my blog, I really appreciate it. Give me some feedback too!
