Expecto Geronimo

Put out another Facebook and Twitter request for sketch ideas. As with the last #drawday, Heather and Dustin wanted The Doctor in a different costume, this time a student at Hogwarts. Heather wanted Hufflepuff, but I think he'd be more of a Ravenclaw. Having fun coloring, but still not good at it. A professor was complaining on Twitter about taking five hours to color a page with a crowd scene and I died a little inside.

Feb. 15th

Sketched this idea a few years ago. Found it while sorting through old sketches and thought I'd fix it up before Valentine's.

Who's Horrible?

Put out a call on Facebook and Twitter for people to suggest things for me to draw. My friend Dustin suggested Doctor Who (Matt Smith) and Doctor Horrible (NPH) looking at each other through a mirror with swapped outfits. Didn't do the whole thing, but this was still pretty fun! Hopefully can do this about once a week. Check it out on Twitter under #drawday.

A bit of life drawing I was able to do recently. Have a new model willing to work with me.

Here's a journal comic from yesterday that I colored real quick. Felt good to hammer out a simple page of feelings and get the Wacom out. Sorry my handwriting is crappy.

Heya, sorry there hasn't been a new post in forever. Got a plan or two to help me get back in the swing of things: journal comics, refreshing and posting older works, putting up portfolio pieces, and taking sketch commissions. If anyone is reading this, hold me accountable. I need to post at least once a week. It's time for me to get in gear. Wish me luck.

Midterm Art Dump

Sup guys? So the quarter's past midterms, and I'm'a show you what I've been up to. I've only got one art class this quarter, Electronic Cover Design for Comics with Nolan.

So project one was coloring a professional cover. This is from an issue of Fear Agent. Looking back, I did a pretty sorry job of it. Hopefully I can find time to revamp it.
Up next is our own cover for a mainstream comic. We pick an issue that we think had a weak cover and make a replacement. I chose DC's The Spirit #30; nothing against Kevin Nowlan or his work, but it was a fairly bland pin-up cover for a very exciting issue, and it has nothing to do with the story, no hook. So here's my try. We also had to redo the title logo, and I went for something kinda 60's swanky-retro.
And now we come to our take on an independent comic cover. Over the summer, I've become a fan of David Tenant's Doctor Who, whom has recently gotten an ongoing comic book series from IDW! Issue 3 has two covers, one with story elements on it, but a boring layout (Doc in handcufffs and two guards just standing there on a blank white page); the other a really cool pin-up shot of the Doctor and TARDIS, but no story or hook. I made an interesting composition with story elements, a cheeky gag of a dunce cap, and redesign the logo blending the blue diamond of Doctor 4 and the warpy oval of Doctors 9 and 10. Enjoy.So yeah, that's what I've been up to in class. Now for the final project: a wrap-around cover for a graphic novel of a personal project. All I can say for now is this - Space Heroes: KACHOW! Saving the day with a Guntar!
