Here's a new blog that I will be posting on with mostly collabs and random sketches. I do posts like that here, but that blog is with two of my pals, Cef and Pav! I'll keep this blog for more of my personal stuff such as this pic here!

dual spike head man

The night started with drawing two hand poses because I really need to work on hands a lot more, but I detoured to filling the page with Robins of varying full body action poses because I also need to practice more gestures and less portraits (my go-to when lacking other inspiration), and then I started to try Batman but this strange bowing pose came out and was rather frustrating so the head shots returned to end things on a less stressful note. Bottom left corner is my own Bruce, gal in the hat is a Pamela Isley, and the rest are straight forward... well, there's that weird lady which started out as a Selena variant (hey maybe she's in disguise?) but it just looks like an older evil Mathilda from "Leon". Still so much to practice, yep yep... so superheroes can help me out since I won't have to worry about designing or complex clothing so much... just focus on gesture and retain some resemblance to the heroes for fun... like my "Robins" turned out to be a pack of spikey haired wannabes... Tim would destroy them.

To my buddy Bryan, who is a Deadpool fan, and just happens to be the source of some of the influence for my character Jeff... just a few things here and there. :)

s'wonderful... marvelous.

I would like to state that I've seen all 5 "Dirty Harry" movies (marvelous), a free time goal which started when I first moved to Chicago around September, and was inevitably prolonged till about early this month when I finished the last ones (oh Happy New Year ya). In between that time I've also seen "Unforgiven", "The Outlaw Josey Wales", "Pale Rider", "The Rookie", and rewatched "Gran Torino". Some of them showed during a Thanksgiving weekend marathon called, "Feastwood". Indeed. I beat "Read Dead Revolver" during the Christmas holidays while all this was still running through my head during a return trip back to the east coast. Early on in my move to the Windy City, I also watched all the "Lethal Weapons". As for comics, I've been collecting some Darwyn Cooke, Will Eisner, and still continuing my following of Jeff Smith. Somewhere in this collection of entertainment, storytelling, and genres are the things that may help me with "Tenants"...which took a huge blow after the end of November from a busy life. I've begun writing to try and channel my thoughts on "Tenants" when I can. My older bro got me "The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, Bone and the changing face of comics" DVD which is cool and inspiring, and the "The Contract with God Trilogy" which I asked for, after the recommendation of a "Tenants" commenter (thank you both!). Until I can really gather myself, I won't be uploading new pages, sad to say. I accomplished my early goals, completing a chapter in pencil and never missing an update. Once it hit ink though, I slowly felt the story slipping away from me as I had to continually force my mind back into the project once every other week (due to life schedule changes and the medium and quality change) but only getting one page out at a time which was way too slow. It wasn't healthy for the story. So I will pick up from where I left off and try to get more done but without posting. I know those kinds of words are often the nails in the coffin, I'm not denying it. All I can do is keep persisting and insisting that I get time to work on my own thing, no matter how busy I get, and if all I can do is type out dialogue for now, I'll do what I can.

Despite all I've taken in, you would think I'd be shooting out Callahan sketches or something but my goal of less fanarts, more originals is still with me.


Below: warm up beginning late in the night. Process has only begun. I will go out in the 18-feels-like-6 air for something to drink and keep me going.
