More "just wait, let me catch my breath" doodles to loosen up and just have fun. The x-men stuff is my repsonse to recently seeing Jean Giruaud a.k.a. "Moebius" comics and artwork which is believed to inspire some of Panzer Dragoon's art direction (that's a series of video games that have this really deep world to it and amazing designs... check it out yo). Was looking at Panzer Dargoon stuff because of my longing to work on my own mech story that is heavily influenced by it. So, with that inspiration I set to trying to do some more abstract ancient and alien looking x-men but only scratched the surface... I like the result but it's far too neon than what I had intended.
A few days before that I'd done a simple bunch of busts from the beloved Venture Bros series after I had seen all of season 3. The characters are very fun to draw.
In other news, I made it into the Udon Darkstalkers Tribute book! So please look for my contribution when it comes out around the end of summer.
After working day by day without doing anything of my own, it gets obviously stiffling... so to catch some fresh air I did these three quick designs all in one day. I'm most happy with the top drawing. You can check out my deviantart for little more info on them since I'm a sucker for making at least a brief line of story for a character design even if they're not encompassed in a developed world.
