Here's my triumphant return! Kicking it off with a bang. These are characters from an animated series I'm developing. The lead guy thinks he's all that and he has his robot down below to add to his awesomeness. But what robot is that? We'll have to see dum dum DUM!

KA-POW!!!! Look out, kids...here comes issue #1 of the new hit comic series, "The Weekly Draw-a-thon!" OK, not really. But still, you know you wanna buy a copy!
For you fellow draw-a-thon-ers out there, see if you can guess who each one is. You'll get extra points if you can guess what their superhero names are!

I'm back baby! And with a vengeance. Okay, well not much a vengeance. But I'm back. Here's a quick comp with some add designs to go along with it. I originally intended for a background of a ruined castle. Sorta a corrupted knight due to the spirit. Oh, well. I tossed in some grays to knock back things. The overly dynamic hands can be blamed on my recent obsession with manga group CLAMP's work. Curse you and your amazing artwork, CLAMP! Oh, caught something. The design of the Knight is off balance. LOLz for bad posing! Enjoy.

Introducing Detective Joe "The Key" Lime (I'm keeping the puns coming, Todd)! He's a private-eye working down in the coastal regions of Florida. He's got a taste for Tequila, little taste for funny business, and even less taste for crime. For a long time he's been in hot pursuit of a villain known only as the "The Citrus Squeezer Geezer", and one day (if he doesn't get made into juice first) he will catch that bandit.
The drawing itself isn't quite finished. I did a quick paint job and threw it up here, but I'd like to clean it up a bit later maybe. Enjoy!

The thing about fast sketches is that they show you EXACTLY where your problem areas are. I just didn't think there'd be so many. I really need to get in some more practice at drawing figures quickly.

. . . if I have to explain how this relates to the theme, I have totally failed. Quick sketch/study, also known as "Spike forgot about the deadline AGAIN." My favorite part of this is definitely the face of the little bear on the right. I think I'm starting to get the hang of what I can and can't manage quickly for these sketches, so it's going to be a matter of refining the technique for the next one. I wish I had started earlier! Hope you guys enjoy it a little, though. =)

It's been a long week. Time to Par-ty! That's right he's saying "look at me, I can dance like John Travolta!" Just something quick since I've been quite busy this week. For some reason I felt this sketch merit inking. Unfortunately a lot of the energy was sucked out in the ink like many of my inks of the past. I'm out of practice. Well, hopefully the colors will revive the energy, haha! Dance the night away baby!

Hey, folks! I thought of portraiture when I saw this week's subject. The pic is fairly similar to the photo I used for reference, but oddly the photo looks rather unlike me. Anyhow, this is me, or at least a me that I caught in a badly shot photo the other day. I look rather manly. o_O Just a quick sketch, really.
Oh, yeah, and I got caught up on comments! Starting with Mike's leaf for "In The Falling Snow" I have given everyone from then till now a comment, so I can fall behind anew this week. =/

"We join our heroes in the midsts of battle against the fiendish rock beast! They think they have him out numbered but it seems it's calling some of his friends to the party..."
Just a sketch this time. Been trying to work on blocking in characters and composition quicker and better and less messily.

Watch your back when the snow falls or else the Falling Snow Samurai (Say that 3x's fast) will cut you down. I really want to tweak that background for portfolio purposes cause this did turn out decently. I really like the outline free style just forgot how stink'n long it takes. Flash and trusty Wacom tablet.

Yep the straggler again. I'm taking this in steps, haha! I delivered a more cleaned up pic but still no color. Though color would do this justice. Penciled in one day! Wowzers. Haven't done a city scape in a while. So to make up for the no color here's some concept art that looks better than the final product, haha!

I think I'm going to be the odd one out in this bunch in terms of style. This is not as finished as I would like, but it's all right considering the small amount of time I put into it. Probably full-color digital paintings are not the best thing to be producing on a weekly basis. I'll have to find some style or process more fitting for this. . . Hope you all like this one.

First off, I'm sorry for the unfinished pic. Not intentional. But unfortunately unforseen job hours and events happend. Not to mention I had a lot of correcting to do with this unique angle. Thus it never made past rough pencils. Though I intend to finish it!
Excuses aside, if you remember my TV show/ Senior Project (working title "Syncro-Harmony") you'll be a bit familiar with these characters. I redesigned them to show them older. The girl is Chloe, Bass is the one in the boy to the left, and Black Noise looking all cool takes the back seat. Look for the final version, it will be up soon! AMP IT UP!
Numerous science shows have assured me that it is not necessarily the voltage, but the amperage, which causes electrocution. . . good to know, right? Though maybe it's not quite what you guys were expecting.
Photoshop, wacom tablet, and a slew of custom brushes (as usual). I have never posted with Blogger before, so I hope this displays properly. I swear I will learn to paint clouds someday--this was rushed. I hope you all like it! =)
So, I think my plans for the finished drawing weren't exactly realistic considering my time constraints, but since I got the main part done I'm pretty happy. Also, I've never done a motorcycle before, so I really wanted to get that right. Everything was done in Flash with a Wacom Tablet (THANKS FORREST!)
