sammyriv Thinking about everything... Dreaming myself away to an island, listening to the ocean, while feeling the cool breeze brush against me. Finding inner peace through adversity is a challenge. I am grateful, however, for my ridiculous imagination. A sense of escapism through my own devices. #drawing #dreaming #peaceofmind #progression #love #passion #escapism #creativity #picoftheday #sketch #instaart #instadaily #supportart #followme 6d

sammyriv Can't believe I've never posted this one. Drawn by me and colored by @pannacotta_cupcake she did an amazing job! This is a two@page spread from issue one of my comic book. #art #digitalart #comicbooks #fantasy #scifi #epic #supportart #picoftheday #instaart #instadaily #followme #staytuned #treasuresofthedeepslumber 4w

sammyriv Did this concept a while back. I used to draw anime characters all the time back in high school. It was fun to get back to my roots. Haha #anime #girl #drawing #conceptart #picoftheday #supportart #followme 4w

sammyriv My friends, it's been a while since I've posted any new work. As Thomas Wayne said, "Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up." Lately, I have been struggling daily with balancing everything in my life. While, battling artist block, during a time when I need to be on my A-game for the things to come. It's not always easy but now it's time to pick myself up. Push myself to do my best. Thank you to all of you who follow my work and encourage me to keep going. It means the world to me. #art #passion #drawing #digitalart #comicbooks #cintiq21ux #conceptart #character #sketch #supportart #picoftheday #pirates #treasuresofthedeepslumber #instaart #instadaily #love #friends #followme 1mon

sammyriv I was going through my work and felt like reposting this guy. It's funny how I see all my characters as if they were real and right in front of me. Taking their likenesses and simplifying them into my style is challenging, but fun. To my artist friends out there, how do you see your characters in your mind? Are they drawn the exact way you see them, or do you stylize them? #digitalart #drawing #imagination #conceptart #character #comicbooks #instaart #instadaily #picoftheday #pirates #sketch #art #supportart #followme 2mon
  •   aliceruitenberg Awesome 2mon
  •   4jmi Its always a fuzzy picture. Then when I draw it out, it kinda creates itself 2mon
  •   christopheraleach I never know what I am going to draw I 100% always draw a shape then my imagination creates a character out of the shape I made and before I know it a character is born. The face give the personality then off that the body is drawn....They kinda draw themselves if that makes any sense lol 2mon
  •   mrmurkdotcom @sammyriv hi , i love your work . I was wondering if you would be able to do a logo for me . Any way to contact you ? 1mon

sammyriv Apparently, today is Batman Day! The 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight. Here's an older drawing I don't think I've posted. Batman in all his punching glory. Cheers to my favorite DC character. #batman #75th #DC #darkknight #celebration #sketch #digitalart #drawing #comicbooks #supportart #followme 2mon

sammyriv Character concept for my comic book. Trying to get all these characters designed for some awesome stuff that'll be going down in coming months. Gotta keep pushing to make this dream become real. #nevergiveup #neversurrender #digitalart #drawing #sketch #conceptart #comicbooks #picoftheday #treasuresofthedeepslumber #lunch #character #dailygrind #instaart #instadaily #supportart #followme 2mon

sammyriv Working on some quick expressions of a character from my book. Lots of work to do in the days to come. Pretty excited about new opportunities and where this will all go. A super special thanks to all of you who support my work!

sammyriv There's nothing more encouraging when your own creations inspire a kid to be creative. My coworker's son (a master builder) made the villain from my book out of Legos! It's so cool and extremely flattering. I must succeed! #lego #captaindeville #comicbooks #treasuresofthedeepslumber #coolstuff #creativity #inspiration #imustsucceed #dailygrind #supportart #followme #pirate 2mon
