Big city lights.
Winding-down evening study from a lovely photo by @unexpected.tales . Loved the intense warm light contrasting with the cool background.
Cheers

When the camera focuses more on your photobomb.
Fun fact: These very unique birds from the Galalagos Islands are interesting for many reasons, including their goofy mating dance - look it up on YouTube, but also cuz they're officially called: ... 'Blue-footed Boobies'. I mean.. whoever named them..seriously dude?
Anyway, TGIF everybody!!

iPad pro study of (one of) my favorite subjects to draw 🦎 this one is a bit inspired by a watercolor sketch by (the amazing) Nathan Fowkes. Tried to keep it loose, simplify light/shadow and focus on what's important (mainly the eye here), rather than getting lost in all of the.. scaly details.

Been busy feeding these..dinosaurs we encountered in beautiful Seychelles.
These incredible creatures are unique to the island and they can reach massive sizes, the ones in the video are still young...just about 80 years old. 🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢

Christmas plot twist: Santa Clause is actually just a tiny little elf. A senior, tiny little elf. (thinking about it now it makes coming down the chimney a bit more practical).
Quick one wishing you a happy Christmas and hope you all have a great festive season. Cheers!!

I did this painting recently for the creative folks behind Clip Studio Paint- Great piece of software that is now available on the iPad Pro. This is based on a photo I took of my girlfriend in Venice; the warming sunlight and calm atmosphere were so inspiring to capture in a lil painting☀️📸🖌️

That moment you realize...
It's pretty crazy it's mid-December already,
I hope y'all had (some of) your goals achieved this year- Time to make a couple new ones for 2018, One of them for me would be starting to develop some of my own stories which have been on the cards for a while. What are some of your goals? .

A couple of characters I designed for a personal 2D project. I do have an affection for the flat 2D approach- no shading or rendering forms and still tells the story perfectly ㋡ not for every thing though. It's just one approach.

Showing my big support with a lil drawing 🐘❤️
Elephants are such gentle, intelligent creatures and shooting them (or any animals for that matter) for trophy is a shameful crime.

More 'Mental Canvas' madness
(non-cropped video on my FB page: facebook.com/SamNassourArt)
Had a lot of fun with this scene, it's like having an intuitive 2D drawing environment mixed with 3D space. I I just collaborated with the creative peeps behind it on testing and feature suggestions. Check them out on MentalCanvas .com - It's not yet available as a public release- but once it's out I believe it can be really useful for environment design and layout for animation. .

When you get your first pet.. シ
Found this sketch in the depth of my Procreate files from a while ago (right after the..big event) and finished it up a bit. I thought it's always relevant to post sketches of pets.
more so... zombie dragon pets.
