A Scattered Dream - Round Up the Suspects

Like last week, didn't get to making only but a quick comic.  One could say this illustrates how I think, and explain why I get some funny looks...

Also, I'll give a $1 to the first person who can figure out EXACTLY what all 5 suspects are.  (hint: the hardest is #4).  Have fun!

Theme 8

In spirit of the season this week's theme is a no brainer: Pokemon... *ahem* I mean 

Theme 8 : "Halloween"  DUH. Come on, you saw it coming. And I'll see you all at the end of the week.

(Note: It was brought to my attention that Halloween was spelled wrong, I have corrected that above from Holloween. Apparently I am stupid. Well, it's fixed)

Scattered Dream

Color version coming soon. And by soon I mean tomorrow.

A simple piece for this theme. I kinda took it half-literally.

Scattered Dream--Baku

Baku attack!  I wanted to draw baku when Todd told me the topic this week.  Baku are from Japanese mythology; they're made up of parts of different animals (ox tails, elephant trunks, tiger feet) and are said to eat dreams and grant good luck.  I couldn't resist adding on spots, stripes, horns, and a healthy dose of cuteness.  So they're almost-baku, who eat almost-dreams (from when you're only half-asleep) and who are almost lucky.

Theme 7

Wow, what a no show. Either no one liked the theme or we've lost members, haha.  Well, here's theme 7 anyway:

"A Scattered Dream"

Good luck

Uninvited Guests--Spike

. . . 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. =)

Look at Me - Admiral Percival Scope

For this week I didn't get to finished this.  In fact, it's still in the rough sketch / yet-to-be-finalized-idea stage.  I'd like to complete it in the near future though, so once I do keep your eyes peeled around either here or on my blog.

Above are sketches of a character I'm working on, named "Admiral Percival Scope", or Perry Scope for short (and just when Todd thought I wouldn't sneak a pun in there somewhere).  Actually that's a double pun, because the esteemed admiral is quite short.  He's got quite the Napoleonic complex, and to cover for his lack of height he wears a gigantic periscope helmet.   In his words, it's to see his enemies before they see him; though most know that it's his vicarious attempt to tower over his subordinates.  As for the poor fellow at attention next to him, we'll tentatively call him "Ensign Resign" (as in giving in, subservient).  "Full speed ahead to the drawing board, men!"

Theme 6

The 6th theme in our on going series:

"Uninvited Guests"

Now you gotta ask yourself one question, "do I feel lucky?" Then draw punK!

Look at me! Saturday Night Fe-VAH!

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!

Look at me! --self-portrait

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. =/

Look At Meeeeee!!!!

Wait, on second thought, probably a good idea not to look at her, unless you like getting stoned. Another all-photoshop drawing. I kinda like this one so I'm gonna continue working on it.

Out of the Earth!!

"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.

Paper Airplane--Out of Earth

Been a busy week, so I've just got a little doodle for you guys. I'm gonna comment on last week's drawings--you guys all did awesome work--but I'm beat right now. Hope you enjoy, & can't wait to see what this week's drawings are! =)

Earth Creature

All done in photoshop. I was lookin at a couple of photos I took at Tybee for the environment. I wish that there were guys like this at the beach.
