Getting Back on Track

Im supposed to be working on a web comic right now but for the past 3 weeks I havent drawn a single thing until today. Not being employed fulltime has been freeing in a lot of ways but it's taken me a minute to get other, more pressing affairs in order first. In the end I havent really been in the mood to draw.

Ever since I started watching Walking Dead and some other zombie movies, I've had this scene bouncing around inside my head so I had to get it out. Still not sure about the composition but it was a lot of fun to create and ink. Hammermill White #32 ledger was a bad choice of paper. The inks bled so much I felt like I was doing watercolor instead of inking for a minute.

I enjoyed making the DIY yo yo cutters and trying to give them a sense of motion. Im still thinking of changing her background and placing her in an arena packed with howling (uninfected) fans. It might tell a more interesting story.

My webcomic Malice in Ovenland will be coming out in installments soon. Please be patient with me.

post Comic Con doodle.

Being at Comic Con (as a participant) was a great experience. At first, viewing the throngs of fellow artists milling about and setting up as I entered Javitts on Friday morning was really intimidating and I felt out of place. But being there and seeing how passionate people were about their craft was so inspiring and encouraging that I quickly shook off my initial mood.

It was both exhausting and rejuvenating being there. Big thanks to all the people who showed up (or commented) on Fb) to support the cause. To you I dedicate my first post Con doodle..hihii

Getting ready from the Con

Here is a page from my teaser comic for Malice in Ovenland - coming oct 31st!
The whole thing will be very photocopier-y...but it's better than nothing.

Found this folded up in my raincoat today so I figured Id post it. Forgot to draw the udders on this cow...but she doesnt appear too troubled by it.

Now in Color!

Finally finished coloring the cover art. Still trying to figure out how I can get a nice cover out of this for the teaser comic. Dont want things to look TOO DIY. Thinking of using this for my promotional post card pic too. Now on to scanning, cleaning up and assembling the rest of the pages.

Dammit..i wanna go out and play : P

Blast from the past

Moving a few things around in the living room (finally getting my couch tomorrow, yay!) and I found this drawing from 1985. Kinda makes me wonder where Id be if I pushed the cartoon thing harder, earlier on. I think I might frame it!

Theyre Here!

Did a test batch for some business cards I had made up to network the Illustrator side of Mich. These were done for a nice price through after a friend recommended using them. Thanks Tricia!

My First Furry

Well...actually its not my FIRST furry...but trying to dust off my pin up chops so I can hope to have art to submit to Girls Drawin Girls. I usually dont do things that are this froo froo, but I figured Id strike out in a new direction. This character will eventually be placed in a setting that tells a little more of her story and color will be added. I used store bought Japanese style Halloween costumes as inspiration. As a first Im pleased with it..but I think maybe her head is too small and should be at a 3/4 angle. Still not sure about the braids. Inked with Microns.

The View from My Apartment

This started out as an another Inky Exercise in perspective. I sketched a street view from the window near my dining area...but I quickly got bored of drawing reality so I reskinned it with more of a fantasy flair. I wanted to take a pic and have a side by side shot people could compare with but it got too dark so I'll do that tomorrow I guess. In the end I think my perspective still needs a LOT of work but its slowly improving. I really enjoyed coloring it and like the whimsical nature of this piece.

Here's another outdoor shot I did sans people. Officially, it's the first time Ive ever tried rendering dappled sunlight. I used crosshatching because Ive been rly into doing that lately. Still using crowquills and an inkpot. At times ink dispersal can be difficult to control, but Im getting better at it.

Lately I've been interested in trying new things artistically speaking so here is hopefully one of many. Ive never felt comfortable placing characters in environments cause I always felt like my perspective sucked, so Im making myself practice now since I feel like its now or never.

This is a sketch I made yesterday of a shot from one end of the Island near the rocks. I added in the character later. She's supposed to be skootching down the wall but she kinda looks like she's just chilling there. I inked this using a Hunts nib#102 and an ink brush for some of the thicker lines and the water (which looks like oil to me)

Overall I think it's a nice start.
