It was a hectic day so I have to post this in progress. I have a few more ideas to try out before I can call this complete.
Also, I want to give some credit to Issara Willenskomer...I used some of his downloadable design elements for the background textures and effects. Check out his site, DesignBum . Not only does he have some great downloads but his work is really outstanding too.

This is an example of just having a single word in mind (in this case "Extremes") and seeing where it takes you. This piece is a little disturbing to me because it started as a self-portrait but in the end I think it feels more like a vampire version of the Joker. I blame this interpretation of myself on the fact that Halloween is around the corner.
I wanted to try a few experiments with the "Absinthe" sketch. In the background, to create more texture, I used a lot of pieces from the vector packs I bought at the Go Media web site. They have a lot of great resources for designer and illustrators on their site.

Some face sketches today from magazines. I'm trying to do these in 20 minutes each just to stop myself from tightening up. Like most artists I know, I really am striving towards a look that is loose and unlabored but still feels finished. I am far from there yet, but some of these are on the right track.
