My mom got me this book from Barnes and Noble for Christmas while we were shopping for my family. I'm really glad I got my hands on this book-- it's going to help me a lot with camera angles, character designs, and other perspectives on animation.
Because I'm trying to improve upon my life drawing gestures, I started out small with a couple self studies of me looking awkwardly into the camera. I think my life drawing skills are better than earlier this year, but I need to work on details like how my shirt looks-- then again, they were gesture drawings and nothing really detailed.
And because I've been watching Gargoyles again, I've decided to mess around with Goliath's facial expressions because I was bored.
The next post will include the next few pages of the Gideon comic.
Well folks, it is official! As promised I decided to post the Gideon comic that I drew and inked for my Old Testament class this semester. :) It was based upon the original Gideon stories from the book of Judges. It's been a really challenging comic, (or graphic novella as I like to put it) but the payoff was great. :)
Enjoy the first few pages. The next four will come in the next few moments.
You folks online are probably wondering why I haven't been actively blogging for the past month. Or perhaps you're wondering why there hasn't been any active art updates in the past week. Or perhaps you're wondering since Mayan's 2012 is around the corner, I decided to celebrate early by pulling the plug.
The truth of the matter is that I've been extremely busy and haven't been able to post anything in a while.
But rest assured I kept myself pretty preoccupied for the past few weeks as I've been working like a horse on a HUUUMUNGOUS Old Testament comic for my OT class that I finished up recently. I must say that even though I don't consider it my best work yet, I consider it my better work than what I've done before.
So you're probably thinking-- why haven't you told us about it you quack? Well, it's because I wanted to keep it a surprise and show you all when the time was right. I decided that is what I'm going to do with a lot of future projects that I'm involved in. I won't say anything until I get my work done-- that way, you'll be more surprised.
However, I will keep updates on some projects like Alien Nation Church and perhaps some drawings for my original character, Amelia Enmity. But for long term projects like fan comics or commissions, or the like-- it's going to go private. Sorry folks, but I gotta do what I gotta do. As Andrew Stanton once commented (regarding the key ingredient of storytelling)-- you'll just have to work for your meals this time.
I always loved reading that book when I was a kid. I figured it was time to draw some Fan Art to glorify my love for it.
Anyway, you're all probably wondering that since I'm in NJ, how did I manage to survive Hurricane Sandy? I think it's going to be a long story and I won't really have time to talk about it right now. I'm not sure if I"ll remember it, but I will try to keep it in mind so I can try talking about it for next time.
Hi folks! Long time no blogging! This whole month has been unfortunately busy for me due to MidTerms taking up my freetime-- as well as three more midterms underway. In the meantime, I would like to share with you some extra Comic Con art that I drew for my portfolio when I was preparing for Sunday's big event.
This has to be the third Hellboy drawing I've ever done. I really love the improvements here which are much better than the first two that I've drawn. The inking style really stands out.
I really like this concept. I drew this sort of as a love letter to Elmo, From Sesame Street, who was at Comic Con at the Variant stage. I never got the chance to meet Kevin Clash, so unfortunately, I never got to show him. ;)
Another retake of another favorite drawing I've done. I really loved the first time I drew Rorschach Gizmo last year, that I really wanted to preserve the idea and keep it in my portfolio, so I can demonstrate my inking ability.
Fundamentalist meets Trick O Treaters
This is actually for an upcoming Halloween issue, for an article that's being written by my friend, Brittany Wethrill. I decided for this to imitate some Tim Burton art, with a dash of Tex Avery. ;)
Justin 'Hawkeye' Casey
Yes, Flying House fans-- another crossover between the Avengers and Flying House. Once again, all apart of my Superbook/Flying House meets Avengers fan art idea I've been dabbling with. I figured Justin and Angie would make a great pair for my portfolio.
And of course, I can't forget my early Disney Afternoon roots with shows like Darkwing Duck. After all, because James Silvani was gonna be there, I wanted to show him my Negaduck drawing. Unfortunately, he never had the chance to look at it because he was extremely busy at that moment. But he was extremely nice at the booth when I recapped with him. :)
Anyway, that's all I have to share. I hope to go more into detail on Comic Con as soon as the Midterms clear up.
