class project evolution

Here be comps for a class project I have to do on sleep paralysis.

initial sketch then inked
(framing was wrong due to me having A.D.D.)

pencil straight to ink comp 1.

comp #3
(was gonna add second hand, then crosshatch. nahhhh)

original position comp# 2
(the action all fell in the middle, which is apparently a no no)

color comp 1.

color comp 2.

So now after being yelled at for incorrect size distribution, I did an 11x17 ver.
and I'm set to go inks and watercolor. let's see how it comes out.

old school

last year pic of proposed odd children's book i was working on with a friend.
it never got fully made since i lost all the images and it was a bitch to draw.

LINK: THE OVERNIGHTSCAPE - cool, frequently updated funny podcast set New York,
where the host frank goes on about the city, pop culture, food reviews. Much like my
sense of humor the show is 100% hilarious when Frank Edward Nora touches upon
life in the city using self-deprecating comedy,
makes hilarious social commentary, and flies off the handle in anger.

i don't read superhero comics, but when i'm bored at work, i mean really bored.
i see if i can draw them. my wolverine back then reallly sucked. this is better i think at least.
though his nose and face lean to his right, like i have a thing with all my character faces.
my spirit of vengeance i like though. I suck at chains sometimes due to lethargy, ha ha.
and no i didn't sit through the flick. i can't watch any Nicolas Cage movie unless it has the words 8 or MM in the title.
3-5 mins pen.

also i am currently reading the monstrously taxing and challenging (but strangely enthralling/captivating)
What a mindfork.

hmm, i should be starting up my webcomic soon. i need to find my source book where i had put
plot points and notations and such down. small parts were put in the "comic genesis" free sampler
around. I dunno if they were actually circulated around. But, alas, i need to totally redraw all
the old pages (which i started way back 2002 i think.) well, it was up to 500 pages until i just
stopped. i wanna self publish, but in a nutshell it's a comic about gangs/government conspiracies/
love/ultraviolence/odd humor and hitmen and hitwomen. yah. and drugs.

here's the main character.
i'm sure ill link sometime in the future.

LINKS: HOMETOWN TALES <- cool, podcast/and videos dealing with local supernatural tales/

been bogged down with coming up with new ideas for personal pieces, as well as submitting to shirt companies. I have to come up with some original water color/ink pieces to sell on the street. As, ta-dah a street vendor . . . We'll see how that goes.

here be some random work 'fore i start putting up new stuff.
Wack attempt at trying JUXTAPOZ-ish art? ha ha. i like the clean and controlled line though.
Obviously not from my scanner.

speaking of.


JUXTAPOZ Street art/pop art magazine monthly.
LEMON MAGAZINE Killing time in Barnes & Noble led me to this badboy. wow
what an impressive magazine. It has a great Clockwork orange theme. (never saw the movie,
only a bit)

september twelfth

hey, here's me screwing around in one of my digital classes, a photoshop chop shop if you will.
well this is very limited time on a wacom, on a mac. just for fun,
I envisioned one of those Japanese manga/anime-esqe meglomaniacal villains that gives
his speech of bad-assery right before he dies and like the ship blows up or something.

Also, for the linkage today, I shall post up the fellas at MUTTPOP.
They just have some bad assed Lucha-libre style characters.

Hey everyone, just making my first post here, going to be updating as much as possible,
right now I am trying to get a new scanner, see if that works out.

Here is a quickie drawing i did straight with ink and brush about a year ago.
I'm hearing the Canoscan LIDE is good under 50 but takes like a minute to juice up.
because I'm sick of my HP 5500 just doing awful bright scans.

anyways, here are some cool links to check out . . .
