I love's me some Invincible! So slowly I'll work though doing art of all the characters at some point. Robot is such an amazing design, TONS of fun to draw! I did this pretty quickly while watching Lost the other night. I really like how the lighting came out on it. I've been looking at certain aspects in real life, so that when I do something from memory like this, I can give it a sense of realism.

Also FCBD is still on today, so stop by and hang out with us!!! The swine flu may have closed down my school district (putting all of us on leave for a week), shut down most events, but comic fans cry a hearty 'meh' and laugh in the face of long as danger doesn't have something communicable!

I've had this Fabriano Artists Journal for a while now, I couldn't get behind it for a long time because it took horribly to ink, led to scratchy edges. This thing was not designed for it...but that was before I was back into prismacolors! This thing is IN-SANE with them! This took me no time at all, MAYBE 20 minutes total, which is crazy. The colors go on vibrantly but you can still have control to build subtle color shifts. There's at least 5 or 6 different tones of paper in it, so expect to see some more of them soon!

I wanted to give this a very simple/graphic treatment. The only issue I had to work through was the placement of the first 'l' on Hellboy created a tangent with Hellboy's 'bun' on the back of his head. So I had to move it around to get the correct placement. After that, I was very happy with the result. Though red is a tough color to work with in terms of internet display as it begins the process of file degradation pretty quickly. I think this would be a fun print to have.

Last day of stress for the week, so I just gotta' make it to the end of the day and I think I'll be okay.

Post 348-FCBD!!!!

Yup yup, Luan, Jake and I are going back to our old alma mater for Free Comic Book Day! We were asked to go and do sketches on FCBD at the Heroes4Heroes event, and we were more than glad to oblige! It's always great to go to our old stomping ground, get some good grub, hang out with cool people, and afterward chill in the square. Plans of hitting up the Recycled Books, and the flea market are a MUST! I might even splurge and get some ice cream, because it's apparently a Denton must that I have never had (quite the eggregious error on my part apparently)!

Either way, if you're near the area, come by and check us out. Honestly, once they said CAPE wasn't happening this year, I was depressed, but when we were offered this, it was a FCBD miracle!!!

So stop by and I'll do a free head sketch for you!

Did this yesterday at work while I was waiting around and such. On the batman I channeled some Brendan McCarthy, I just love that style of hatching to use as shading.

I keep telling myself that after this week...after THURSDAY even, things will be much better. Here's hoping I'm not just deluding myself, but actually going to have my head above water for the first time in a few months. That'd be fantastic!

Some sketches I did today. I did a bunch more for a friend, but they wouldn't make any sense without context. Other than that, I feel a bunch lighter because I was able to finish a TON of work this weekend.
