Cliff and cat

Took a sketch I liked and practiced doing some digital ink work with it. It's a start. I'm pretty happy with it, and it reminds me that one day I will actually publish this comic... and a surreal feeling falls over me. I hope you guys like it.

What is this story anyways? One day you'll see.

Below is the original sketch.

While it was crunch time last week at work I managed to do some fun coloring of some older sketches I had from September. The idea in the third picture was to make Nightcrawler look older with grey hair and a beard. Hope it works!

Oct 29th, 2008 - and let's go back in time even further with more sketches.

Though it's not time yet, back on DA I wanted to thank people for their awesome support. I couldn't thank everyone so I went the way of first come first serve for five free sketches. They could request any superhero, and I'd try my hand at it. It's also a good transition into eventually doing some commissions!

Here's the description for that creepy Batman one:

"Now this isn't to be unfair or anything, but I just had to ink this one. She asked me to draw the 1966's tv show Batman. I did a few sketches of his normal Adam West body shape with some goofy poses and expressions, but in the end I just wanted to draw a buff Batman with the 1966 look... and smiling... plus some love handles!

The Batman symbol was totally small and in the middle like that on the show, that's not a mistake- but the hands I drew are horrendous. As for the not shaded cape, it's a compositional thing... I like the balance the picture has with just a few black areas.

p.s.-The black was colored with washable crayola marker..."

It was really fun drawing these, and the recipients liked them!

This is an idea I came up with in August, which takes two Batman villains story and design and combines them into one single character. It was a lot of fun to create and got a great response from artists on Deviant Art... that really made me happy! Maybe one day I can officially create a story like this... working in DC... and Marvel... and my own comics... and become a big hit! uhm, in my dreams so far- haha!

Here are the names of each villain:

If you're interested in the little bios or comments I wrote for them, please go to my deviant art gallery!

You know... in keeping a blog, it feels a little redundant posting on DA and on here, but I'll still try posting some sketch work here in the future... development stuff like I did with thesis. I want to continue doing that with Moth, but I'll need to continue working on Moth in the first place... it's been on hold with all the latest artwork I've been doing that's just so much fun and none of the stress. Moth is fun, but man, doing a single page is so daunting and draining, haven't gotten able to work on it in a flow yet. At work, it's crunch time... but just a little longer- I can make it though!!! Then, maybe I'll have time to focus on Moth. :)

-and to anyone who actually reads this thing, thanks for the support on the last entry on the Nicktoons voting!
