The King Jester

Just a quick post with my latest pieces.

For Wonderful Women Wednesday, I drew the daughter/clone of X-man Wolverine, X-23.

And for Todays' Martial Theory Thursday I decided to draw another one of my original characters, from another story (separate from the story I've been eluding to in previous posts). This time I've drawn a character that I will simply call "The King's Jester" for now. (Ooooh, mysterious). Until tomorrow!

Alright, so it's Cool Dude Tuesday.

This time, again, I decided to draw Sean from the graphic novel I'm developing, but I also included his partner in crime-fighting, Basil. Here they are enacting some justice and whatnot.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012


Actually, for todays Monstrous Monday, I did a sketch of one of my original monsters, Anger. If I called him Rage I'd feel like a Metal Gear Solid 3 rip off.

Anger is one of the giants from my Slumberland story. More will be revealed eventually.

Today is Monstrous Monday, but I will be making that post later today.

For now I'd like to post some stuff from the weekend, and talk about some news.

For Fanart Friday, I did a quick sketch of one of my favorite characters growing up, Vegeta from Dragonball Z. It just felt necessary.

For Sequential Saturday I did another piece of my original character, Sean, from a graphic novel I'm developing. Classic case of "guy punches a hole in the Moon."

Now for news. Now that I've had a situation that has been looming over me for the past few months seemingly blow over, I have decided to start back up on developing a pitch for my comic (with the character featured above). So while I still want to do these daily sketches, they will likely be less refined than they are now, as I'd like to start spending more time developing that project.

Most importantly I'd like to start getting alot of practice on full-size comic book boards. I'm not sure how this will affect my daily themed sketches, but all practice is good practice, so I may be posting up more sequentials and less themed sketches.

As for my videos, boards are pretty large but I may be able to adjust my setup to capture my process on those as well. For the tutorial series, it has taken a pause for the moment as I try and get everything situated.

Updates as I get everything cemented.

Catching Up (again)

Well, I had some serious business to take care of this week, but I got around to making up for everything I missed for the most part. I'll be making up for the things I don't include in today's post soon, as you will see in the next couple days.

For last weeks Sequential Saturday piece, I decided to draw one of my own characters in a tussle with a random lackey bad guy. You'll be seeing this character (Sean) around more often soon, so be ready.

For the Monstrous Monday's piece, I just decided to go with random "Thing" inspired mutation dude. I still love The Thing, probably my favorite horror movie. Haven't seen the new one though....

For Cool Dude Tuesday, I decided to do a favorite from Marvel comics, Wolverine.

For Wonderful Women Wednesday, because I am so hooked on the new Avatar series (new episode tomorrrrooow!), I decided to draw it's main character: Avatar Korra. She's pretty much a badass.

And lastly for this post in celebration of me and the entire world seeing the Avengers recently, I decided it would be appropriate for Martial Theory Thursday to draw Thor's Mjolnir hammer, waiting patiently for it's owner lodged in some rocks.

And that's it, I'll be making up the days you didn't see posted here tomorrow and Sunday so keep an eye out for those, hope everyone has a good weekend!

Too Cool

So, still been messin' around with the timelapse feature on my mom's camera, and did one of me drawing yesterdays drawing. If you didn't know, yesterday was Martial Theory Thursday, adn since I'm still playing through Final Fantasy 7, I drew Cloud again, but this time in his Advent Children incarnation. So check out the video and then the final piece below!

And for Todays Fanart Friday, I did  pretty quick sketch and ink of the King of Cool, the Sultan of Swagger, Spike Spiegel himself. Spike is the main character of a classic, super-jazzy anime called Cowboy Bebop. Still one of my all-time faves.

Until tomorrow!

Alright, so I'm just gonna get my drawing for Cool dude Tuesday out of the way so I can get to the big news.

I drew one of the newer martial arts movie superstars: Tona Jaa. Knee-ing the heck outta random dudes face.

Now the real news is, I found out my mom's camera has a built-in intervalometer function for making time lapse videos. Here's my first try with a water color sketch for Wonderful Womens Wednesday. Camera had auto-focus and auto flash on so it kinda bounces around which shouldn't happen next time.

And the final piece:

This Is Madness!!

Actually, it's Monstrous Monday.

Still working on getting out of my funk (you'll see how bad it is in just a moment), but I feel like I've still been pushing to be creative and that's something of an improvement in my attitude and discipline. Anywho, let's get on to business.

A day late, here's my piece for Structured Sundays. I wanted to work on my watercolors and also do something architectural. I chose the Eifel tower. I think this came out terribly, but I had some good ideas while working on it. In case you were wondering it's much easier to make an acrylic painting look better the more paint you slap onto it. Water colors not so much....

The next piece is for today's Monstrous Monday, and I wanted to draw use some of my original characters I haven't drawn in awhile. Here we have Nemo (based on a Sundays comic strip character of the same name from the early 1900's), and Lunacy. Nemo's story takes place in Slumberland, and to make a long story short, Lunacy is one of the monsters that inhabits this dreamworld. More info and art from my Slumberland story will surface as it develops. Nemo is the character being psychadelically warped, by the way.

And that's it, until tomorrow!

Making Up

For the last few days, I've been in kind of an artist block. I've still been sketching a bit every day, but mostly scribbles just to keep me going and break the "meh" feeling.

But I'm back today to make up for Thursday and Fridays pieces, and of course I have the piece for today too.

For Martial Theory Thursday I fiiinally did a piece of my favorite Tekken character. One of my first favorite fighting game characters ever from the first game I ever bought, Tekken 3: Yoshimitsu. In this piece I have him in his Street Fighter X Tekken alternate costume.

For Fanart Friday, in honor of the new Spiderman coming out and actually looking pretty cool, I did a Spider-man piece. I know, I know, the villain in the new Spidey flick is the Lizard, but I felt like drawing Venom because he's my fave Spidey villain. 

 Last but not least I have today's piece for Sequential Saturday. In this piece I'm featuring the two grand masters of the Ansatsuken fighting style, rivals and brothers Gouken and Akuma.

I enjoyed making all three of these and I might go back into them to clean em up once I get out of my funk. I'm going to try to get up some new videos also so keep an eye out!

Well it's Wonderful Women Wednesday again.

I'm kind of in an artists block right now. But the best way to beat it is to keep drawing.

So I just have a random angel-esque chick jumping around on some clouds. Enjoy!

A long, long time ago, back in the Playstation 2 launch days, there was a game called Ico.

I had always wanted the game, but never got it. By the time my pal let me borrow it like 9 years later, I was too busy with other games and had probably played Shadow of the Colossus for like 60 hours (game takes about 16-20 hours to beat. I did all the extra stuff and still played).

But anyways, I recently got the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD collection and finally played through Ico yesterday in pretty much one sitting.

I loved it. And they did an amazing job with updating the game to HD. Yeah Ico's face is still pretty ugly, but since most of the time the camera is zoomed out it doesn't matter. What does matter is that all the scenery and the animations look fantastic. So anyways, I was going to put this piece up here as a two-for-one Cool Dude Tuesday and Wonderful Women Wednesday piece featuring Ico and Yorda. But I think that's pretty lazy so I'll update later with a real WWW piece.

Not particularly happy about how this one turned out, but sometimes you just gotta work through things and get it done and hope you do them better next time.

Until later!
