Red Ranger Concept by JustTheCleric
Red Ranger Concept
this is a sketch I colored using Autodesk Sketchbook. It's a pretty useful program and a serious rival to Paint Tool Sai (in my humble estimation) when it comes to sub-$100 digital painting programs. Paint Tool Sai has superior blending and brushes, while Autodesk Sketchbook has better drafting tools for crisp, clean lines and backgrounds. THe perspective tools and french curve tools are really useful for lineart. Not to mention the guided 'steady stroke' function that allows your jiggly wacom pen to produce beautiful, smmooth arcs and curves.

Of course, I didn't do any of that fancy stuff in this pic, content instead to hastily color under a pencil sketch. But I think my new method of choice for finished pieces will be to do lineart in Autodesk and then color in Paint Tool Sai. 

I've been thinking about Power Ranger costume ideas ever since they announced the new movie (pleeeease don't suck). I'm way curious how they're going to update the ranger armor. I'm guessing something more sophisticated than spandex, but who knows. There's really a lot of opportunity to reinvigorate this franchise and get fans of the original back on board. The trenchcoat you see in my designis a nod to my favorite comics in the 90s when all the badasses added trenchcoats over their body armor. I don't imagine it serves any practical function, but probably helps to make the ranger stand out less when coordinating with civilian law enforcement or military. 

Anywho, comments and feedback appreciated. Also, I'd like to get some practice by doing requests to kind of flex my range, so requests welcome as well.

Thanks for checking out my work!
Drakin' by JustTheCleric
Caricature-ish pic I did of Drake with my new colored pencils. Didn't get the features quite right but I still like how it looks. 
Deadpool and Death by JustTheCleric
Deadpool and Death
colored pencil pic of this lovely couple snapping a selfie or something. D'aww. Didn't even know about the whole DeadpoolxDeath thing until I played the awesome Deadpool video game, but I shipped the hell out of it immediately. 
Love and Music by JustTheCleric
Love and Music
My girlfriend a set of bad@$$ colored pencils (the woodless kind) for my birthday. This picture, which was laying around in an old sketchbook, was begging to be colored. I love digital coloring but colored pencils were always a lot of fun too

Drawing fanart and writing fanfiction are probably two of my most cherished pastimes, even well into adulthood. I'm a graduate student now, and despite the immense workload I've never given up on either one completely. I started my DA way back in highschool, and started writing fanfiction even before that (I was an avid producer of both back then, and I'll freely admit that I've let both of these fall to the wayside over the past years of grownup responsibilities and obligations) Nonetheless, I'm going to try to revive my deviantart, even as I update long-abandoned fanfics. So if you follow me or are familiar with my art, expect a lot more to come soon.
