Speed Drawing a Skull and converting it into vector

I enjoy drawing, I enjoy the internet, and I enjoy making videos. I figured it was a good idea to start recording my art and I tried making a tutorial on drawing a skull, then converting it into a vector image. I didn't like how my voice came out, it sounded weird and monotone. So, I canned the project and just made it a speed art video. So, the skull was drawn on the fly and to me looks kind of dorky. But, the video does show some of my techniques I use when creating art for my clients.

This video should give inspiration for all those artist that don't have or can't afford a tablet\wacom. I make all my art with pencil and paper first, take a picture of it, yeah, that's right a picture, no scanner here! And then I use my mouse pad, I work on a laptop, to clean up the image in Photoshop, and then vector it in Illustrator.

New font in the works and my SEO campaign blog

I've never created a font until about 3 days ago, and I wasn't expecting much of a response and I must say I was surprised at the feedback. I created the font, named it 'Dead Bitch', nice name right? And then I released it for personal use on DaFont.com. In 2 days my font received 3,000 downloads and is ranked first in it's category (script - trash)

So, I decided to make another font and I've already sketched out A through D. Unlike my first font, I will take much more time and effort while creating this one. Not saying I didn't try on 'Dead Bitch' font, I just had little patience with it. Download my font from my website: GKDN - Chicago Web Design - Designs by Chris or from Dafont.com

If you do download my font, please watch my Youtube Video on how I created grindcore logos from it, it makes a world of difference using my techniques! Here's my video:



I also have created a blog following my SEO journey on getting ranked on Google's Search Results. Head over to my other blog to check it out. It's very useful information and you might learn how to get your website ranked!

I'm currently working on 2 more fonts. Those should be available late February 2012. Thanks
