Wow!

Bet you didn’t see that coming did you?  Gillian and Flynt are back again to wrap up the “cat-in-the-tree” storyline.

Why the revival?

I once read a quote regarding about going to your grave with your unrealized ideas and aspirations are a waste of human ingenuity.  Originally, I had given up on delivering my story for The Black Carnival in favor of other endeavors.  It was a notion I truly hated myself for deciding.  After 5 months, I’ve returned to take another attempt at delivering my story.  No point in wasting human ingenuity right?

The Black Carnival will continue to serve as a means of experimentation with style and feasibility.  I get faster and more efficient with each drawing.  There can be only good things that come from this.

Black Carnivals will be released with no schedule.  I’ll try to crank them out when I can, but I’ll be mixing in other pieces of work between each page.

Catch up on the whole series here

bloodbrothers final

Have you all seen Mad Max yet? My goodness, if the answer is no, you need to remedy that this weekend.  From its adrenaline pumping soundtrack to its awe-inspiring visuals to Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa, you need to get on what is shaping up to be one of the best movies of the year.  I loved it so much that I drew two of the main characters, Max and Nux as they first know each other toward the beginning of the film.  Bloodbrothers.  You’ll get the reference.

I’m still struggling with finding and identity for my style.  I’m generally proud of this one, but I found myself wandering and not really knowing what the hell I was doing when I was drawing this one.

Looking forward to the next one.  My binging of Rick and Morty has me jonesing to do some fan art, but I’ve got another big project in my mind and I’m highly considering pursuing that instead.

Remember to follow on Twitter for hilarious updates.

Also included is a speed drawing below, enjoy!

the queue final

If you didn’t already know, I’ve been lending my talents on a new podcast called The Queue, a group of friends who gathered to talk about geeky things trending in pop culture.  We love talking shop about our passions and I got inspired to draw the The Queue Crew in an efforts to bring up the hype.

Historically speaking, all members of The Queue used to be writers for Banana Scoop during our more active years.  You’ll recognize SoGoCJE, Ben, and myself in the picture.  I guess in a way we never really left each other’s lives as we’ve moved from writing to podcasting.  It’s all the same as long as we get to discuss with each other what we’re passionate about.

Also included is a new speed drawing of the drawing with music featured by Skullbeatz

hotline miami 1280

 

You can hear the skull cracking.  This without a doubt is probably the most NSFW piece I’ve drawn to date.  But with Hotline Miami still ringing in my bones, I had to draw something to pay tribute to the high-octane feeling I get when I clear a level.  The game is absolutely brutal, punishing, and ridiculously addictive.

So I drew Corey (who is a girl, which I didn’t know until I started researching her character), who is known for her tumbles.  She bats hard and the goons don’t stand a chance.

Feel free to leave constructive criticism.  I’ve also included a speed drawing for you all to enjoy with a smooth 80s-esque track to get lost in.

Hey all,

I previously drew a picture of The Flash and I recorded my screen while doing so.  And with the help of the Speed Force (embedded in the software ScreenFlow), I was able to speed it up and fit it to some hip beats released by Tasty.  Check out the links and I hope you all enjoy!

I’m having trouble picking my next topic of drawing.  I was going to do a Robin drawing, but I think I might be ready to get back into lady pin ups…Then again, drawing some beastly things from the hotly anticipated Bloodborne could be pretty sweet too.

Help me?

On another note, I’ve got a new actual article coming down the pipe soon.  Some of you might have slipped in the embarrassing window of when it accidentally posted and seen what it was about.  If not, look forward to it!

the flash

The Flash has risen in popularity over the past couple of years.  In thanks to the great comic book restart during the New 52 event, the rising CW television series, and the eventual Flash movie starring Ezra Miller.  This year marks the 75th anniversary of when the Flash hit the panels, so I did some quick fan art depicting the Scarlet Speedster doing what he does best. Running.

Gonna celebrate some Robin 75 in my next drawn.

animal man vs. the rot

So I’m catching up on Animal Man and I’ve really begun to like Bernard “Buddy” Baker as Animal Man.  I’ve been meaning to write an article about how amazingly different and utterly disturbing reading Animal Man has been, but I settled with this drawing for now.

Enjoy!

melaka fray 1280

Finished Fray a while back. Inspired, I drew the gorgeous and deadly Melaka Fray. Quite the exercise in background too. Very satisfied with this one. And I recorded this drawing that I enclosed below.

So the last bazillion things I’ve drawn are all strong and gorgeous women.  Time to amp up the testosterone.  Thinking of some Animal Man/Swamp Thing…in chibi form.  Maybe.  Not sure.  It will come to me.

rockabilly jinx 1280

It’s been a long time since I drew something and shared it here.  I decided to draw some fan art of my favorite ADC from League of Legends as of light.  She’s got a new skin (Firecracker!) coming out and I’ve decided that she should really get a Rockabilly skin.  Punk hair, tattoos, and revealing clothing.

For her three guns, Rockabilly Jinx is sporting minigun guitar, an RPGC rocket propelling guitar case, and a microphone zapper. Enjoy!

sona final

This is a drawing of Arcade Sona I painted.  She’s probably one of my favorite champions right now and she looked like a lot of fun to draw.  As stated before, I’m pursing a different style now, kind of edging away from keeping with line art and using more of a brush.  The previous Harley Quinn picture was simple though.  This drawing was a lot more complex, using nearly triple the colors required to do this technique.  I’m really proud of this one and look forward to what else is in store for 2015!

I wrote a small breakdown of how I did the whole thing included below.

harley 1280

My obsession with Harleen Quinzel continues as I use her as my object for trying a new style.  I took a painting + blur tool on this one versus my normal style.  I really liked the shading that can come from it and how it looks without the line art.  Expect more experimentations with this.

I kinda set it vaguely at Arkham Asylum, hence her orange jumpsuit.  I’m going to say Harley found her infamous collar (and ultimately the calling card to get her to be recognizable) amidst a riot where she wrestled away a police baton.  She also found her old name tag and set out to correct it to better reflect who she is now.  And of course, she’s always equipped with that absolutely adorable smile.

wonder woman wallpaper

Quickly drew some Wonder Woman fan art.  I’m adjusting to a new computer, so I’m keeping my drawings relatively simple for now.  Hope you all enjoy it!

finals week 2014

It’s my last finals week before I graduate and I decided to draw a little sketch of my last battle.  Buzz is guiding me, as always as I fight against the four classes I have to beat.  Here’s a little backstory to the characters I’m up against:

PSYC 2210 (Social Psychology): Psychic Sarah. She uses her psychic knowledges of social psychology to get my anxiety levels above normal.
ChBE 4310 (Bioprocess Engineering): Biomass Betty. Betty overwhelms me her shear mass in biotechnical mumbo jumbo that I know nothing about.
ChBE 4200 (Unit Operations): U.O. 2000. This robot from lab class is going to take full advantage of me not brining my goggles and lab coat to the fight.
ChBE 4535 (Product Design): Designer Desiree. Designer Desiree gives me vague and ill-defined riddles and expects me to solve them.

Now I should probably stop drawing and go back to studying…

Some ways back I did a drawing of my webcomic series’s leading lady, Gillian Akers.  I recorded the drawing and finally had the chance and internet speed to upload it.  Enjoy!

bc 7 FINAL 1280

Black Carnival #7

Previously

Next

Some notes: I’m going to experiment with how other comics deal with large walls of text.  By the end of the fourth panel, I was getting upset that I would draw a whole panel only to have it blocked out by a wall of text (Panel 3).  So I either have to be more concise in the writing or experiment and come up with solutions like I did in panel 4.

I normally (try to) participate in National November Writing Month, but this year I decided to do something a little different.  Instead of a 1500 words a day, to get to the coveted 50,000 word novel, I’m going to try a panel a day (they do say a picture is worth a thousands words…).  I’ve already gotten Black Carnival written up to #16 and I’m very excited for having what’s in store for the story.  I’m already several days behind, but that’s not going to stop a man like me.

will and lying cat 2

A different, if slightly violent style. Pretty sure I ran the nib down pretty far on this one.  I’m pretty in love with Saga right now, with these two at the helm as some of my favorite characters (but honestly, who isn’t my favorite).

Yay another Black Carnival.  In this page we introduce Lady Valora who has had a major character redesign since last time I drew concept art of her.  And of course our main characters have also gone under another character redesign.  As mentioned before, will keep experimenting as I get more and more comfortable with a specific design.  More Black Carnival kinda soon.  Will probably continue to go at this sluggish pace unfortunately.  Too many other things to draw at the same time.

For example, got something cooking up for Halloween.  Let’s hope I can make it in time.

project pool party 2 final

Over a year ago, I drew a piece on my new Cintiq drawing tablet that involved 9 characters and a pool party.

It was my first piece on my new drawing tablet. As proud of it as I am, I’m happy to know that I’ve grown a lot over the year in terms of skill & patience.

So today I present to you a redrawing of that first piece containing the same nine characters in the same environment, a pool party! It was a lot of fun, can’t wait to get started on the next couple of projects I have lined up.

From the left: Ellie, Rose Red, Rhaegal the Dragon, Omar Little, Cloud, Steve, Viserion the Dragon, Drogon the Dragon, and Daenerys Targaryen.

I’ve included the original picture below.  I’ve come a looooong way.

POOL PARTY final

On another note, I have more projects on the way, Black Carnival, Saga fan-art, some Korra, I have a lot of ideas and hopefully the time to do them!

hq wallpaper3

A piece I tried with a thinner pen.  I hadn’t drawn Harleen in a while so I figured it was time for a new piece.  More comic book-ey, less cartoony.  I like the results.  Slow pieces will continue to make their way to Banana Scoop.
