process work for a recent #illustration I worked on.
I opted to go with a more painterly approach when finalizing the look for this character. The process began by taking the pencil sketch and applying a flat color approach, using Photoshop’s lasso tool. From there, I used a few custom Photoshop brushes to add in shading. Next, I applied a paper texture to give the robe a different material feel. I’ve used this technique plenty of times for illustrating background layouts, but this is the first tim...

My process when it comes to ideation for a character concept.  #mindmaps   #characterdesign  
Over the course of the next several blog posts, I’ll be sharing my process on how I personally approach character concept design. Constraints are important, and in this case, the constraint I’ve been given is the text description of a character obtained from Chaotic Shiny, a writing and gaming generator. Er’mli, the God of Wrath, is very beautiful, with copper skin, long, pale golden hair, and eyes the color of tree bark. He is very tall and broa...

After a 2 year slumber, I'm finally making new drawing / cartooning tutorials. This particular video focuses on line confidence and some warm-up drawing exercises I do to limber up.

Some tips on working with color and pushing contrast #illustration  #background #layout
Color has a tendency to fool the eye into thinking that the contrast levels are okay. The best method I’ve found to insure that there is sufficient contrast is to take an existing image and convert to grayscale. By looking at the tonal values alone, without the distraction of color, I can see if the range of dark to light shades provide sufficient contrast. A poor tonal range will yield grayscale values that are very close to one another. A good ...

here's a breakdown of my process work when designing background layouts 
I’m reading a book on Maurice Noble, the famed background layout artist whose work at Disney and Warner Bros. are the stuff of legend. Mr. Noble’s background designs are brilliant, and I have a lot to learn from studying his work. Though I work digitally, I approach background design from a painting perspective. I prefer the minimalistic, stylized look as opposed to photorealistic rendering. I prefer to let shapes, not lines, dictate the environm...

I saw Ghostbusters in the theater when I was in 7th grade. It made an indelible impression on me back then. The theme song was anthemic, and at the end of the film my gang of friends and I all made plans to become neighborhood Ghostbusters, placing flyers around our apartment complex. In my view, no character embodies that movie more than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Today’s sketch pays tribute to the Man, the Marshmallow Man, and the Myth. Add...

My first illustration for 2015 started on New Year’s Eve. Flying gadgetry has always been the stuff of fascination for me, so when I ran across a contraption developed by Thomas Bird (involving an outboard motor and a ceiling fan!), my creative juices were firing on all cylinders. Below is my ink layer, overlapped ontop of my pencil layer. I thought it would be neat to show the pencils overplayed onto of the final piece. There weren’t any major m...

Introduction

Krishna M. Sadasivam (pronounced Sah-DAS-eh-VHAM) is the creator of The PC Weenies. A glutton for knowledge, Krishna earned a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. It was there, in the hallowed bowels of Ferris Hall, that Krishna discovered he was a bonafide computer geek.

After several years in the chip design industry, Krishna made the precipitous decision to leave the engineering world behind and follow his life-long dream of going back to school for a formal education in art. His M.F.A. in Animation is from the Savannah College of Art & Design.

Currently, Krishna serves as a full-time instructor within the Media Arts and Animation department at the Art Institute of Tampa. When he’s not busy teaching, he spends a considerable amount of time as a professional cartoonist / illustrator. Some of his prominent clients include TechCrunch, Beatweek Magazine, Hinduism Today, What PC? Magazine (VNUnet), The BENT Magazine (Tau Beta Pi), EE Times, Other World Computing, Microsoft, The Straits Times, Typical Mac User Podcast, World of Beer and CNET.
Bragging rights
My tech cartoons have appeared on Mashable, CNET, TechCrunch, EE Times, Microsoft and many other online and print publications. My first self-published book, "PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus", has traveled to all 7 continents.

Heroes Haven is the gold standard for comic book shops. Clean, well lit, and filled to the brim with comics, graphic novels, and collectibles. The store staff are friendly and helpful, and make it a point to know their customers on a first name basis. I've been to many, many comic book shops in the south east, and Heroes Haven, without doubt, is the best one I've ever been to.
