Contemplation of The Secret Flame:  This is what I’m about to start inking, felt like working on something slightly strange. It’s just that kind of day, more pics to follow.

Death Horn process pics 4-5-14: A few more shots showing the ink flow and of course the fated ink smudge. LOL, well it happens and it’s part of the wonderful world of pen and ink. So now I can can either cover it up or make something new out of it, make it part of the composition and of course risk really screwing it up. But, isn’t that part of the fun, part of the fun of creating and building something that didn’t exist before I took pen to paper? Of course there is the good old scanner and computer, sitting there ready to let me cover it up like magic, ready to make it seem like nothing ever happened. Come on, really, where is the fun in that, the adventure of wonder and amazement. So many cool thing can happen in that moment of exploration but if you never allow yourself to walk outside of that box, to risk a chance to change, well then the best part of you may never see it’s true potential, nor it’s most heightened moment of realization. Explore, experiment, walk where you will and be amazed by the freedom that is your creative mind, never limit yourself. Give your soul permission to fly and dance upon the stardust of the universe, never let the best part of you be enslaved by someone or something, even if that someone is you.

struggling with an injury - story and advice!

loish:

Hey everyone! In some previous blog posts, I mentioned that I’m struggling with an injury to my drawing arm. Although I hoped that the problem would have totally gone away after more than a month of rest, it actually hasn’t, and I’m still struggling with it at this very moment. It’s actually been harder emotionally than it has physically. I’ve decided to go ahead and write a blog entry about it, not only to keep my followers in the loop but also as a cautionary tale to any artists out there who have not yet sustained an injury. If I had been more aware of the risks, maybe this would never have happened to me, so the very least I can do is try to help those who aren’t aware of the risks.

Enigmatic Chaosmos is a sped up clip using Lapse It Pro. This is the inking of a concept I had one day, depicting a kind of chaos symbol or element floating around space about to interact with other abstract elements

Idea emerged centered on strange landscapes and abstract space. This one is called Portal of Protection. ©Robert T Leija

Face of Illustration: This is a personal illustration done entirely in Manga Studio 5EX with the help of the awesome @Frenden on Twitter or his website  frenden.com ‘s wonderful brushes. The idea behind this piece revolves around the history of the secret schools and there after the secret societies of the elite. Another thought was the understanding of how people can be hypnotized into compliance, be it for purchasing products and services or the more complex idea of swaying your beliefs both political and religious. I think it’s also about consequence and how knowledge can transform mankind for better of worse. © Robert T Leija 2013 - http://www.RobsDigitalArt.com

Horror of Transformation

This piece was originally done as just something quick and easy but as I keep moving along and working with the new Manga Studio EX5, my fascination continually grew and I found myself wanting to move further and further along. This software has really come a long way and I now believe that not only is it a fantastically strong comic making software but now is also a very capable illustration app. I will be looking forward to working more with MS EX5 and sharing my process and opinions.

Additionally I want to give a shout out to Ray Frenden, a really helpful dude on the Twitters, Facebook and Tumblr. Ray has some of the best brushes that I have used and also gives some of the best reviews of art related hardware, I highly recommend following him on one of social sites and pick up some of his cool brushes.
