If you've been following my blog (which is like what, 2 people, maybe) then you will know that I mentioned that I wanted to start making a graphic novel. I've been using this character - Bad Luck Becky (name subject to change). Anyways, I thought that maybe she was a little too old, so I'm "younging" her up a bit. Before, she was at least 16, because she had a car, but I thought the story would work better to be more in the 12-14 year old range. So, here is my attempt (after many not shown) on said character. Let me know your input. Better? Worse?
Whoops. Forgot to mention this is a pencil drawing, scanned, then colored in Photoshop. Enjoy.

This week I decided to be a little ambitious and do a little one page comic for this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Subterranean."
I want to eventually try my hand at the dreaded GRAPHIC NOVEL (fancy words for 'long comic book'), so I think this is a good start. Enjoy.

The top illustration is of a warrior princess. She's just a character right now, but perhaps a story is there somewhere.
The bottom is Ookla the Mok from the old school cartoon "Thundarr the Barbarian." Ever since I was a kid I've always loved the look of this character. Thank you Boomerang for airing this show right now.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE drawing cute "kiddy" stuff. But, after too long I just have to draw a big ogre with a bloody sword. The progression from top to bottom is 1) initial sketch from my reference, 2) Rough sketch of details, 3) Line work, 4) Color. Enjoy.

WOW. Sorry kids. It's been a while since I posted here. Had some internet troubles for a couple of weeks. But, hopefully I'm back now.
The topic for Illustration Friday this week is "Perspective"
So, I decided to put up this piece that I did a couple of weeks ago just for fun. I was trying my hand at some fake perspective. I didn't use anything but my gut and intuition on this, so if it looks terrible, then that's why. I'd like to make this a couple page spread for a book. That's why the principal's office has a name on it. Not too sure about the name, but I think it works for now. Anyways, enjoy.
