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.

Sorry I’ve been slacking on the blogging lately.  It’s taking a normal amount of adjustment since restarting school again!

This is my second shot at a someone from my Black Circus Series, Cameron.  She’s had a wardrobe change as well as a hair cut.  Drawing women [or regular humans for that manner] is not my forte.  I’ve had much better luck at werewolves and creepy clowns. Be sure to visit my deviant art page for more!  Also see the original Cameron below.

Sadly, this is the last Universidaze comic I’ll publish in a long time.  As school looms closer and closer, I know I need to give up some of the responsibilities I’ve given myself when it comes to this blog.  And after evaluating some of the cost/profit aspects of this blog, Universidaze simply takes too much time for it to be worth it.  If I were a free lance artist who could dedicate his one post a week to Universidaze, it would be doable.  But balancing the 2-4 hour drawing process with 24 other articles a week is simply going to make this blog bleed.

The adventures of Chad and Miles seem to be over for now.  It’s such a shame, considering I’ve grown very fond of the two of them and I feel as though I could’ve done so much more.  The Universidaze tab will remain here for all those who wish to go back and read some of the older comics.  I plan on playing around with the hyperlinks and making the page much nicer as a final send off.  But who knows, maybe they’ll survive the crash.  Maybe they’ll make a comeback.  We can only wish and dream.

The beautiful product of Adobe Illustrator.  This project took about 8 hours.  When  I was working with only Photoshop, I never did anything this distinct, clean, or clear as this.  Illustrator just takes things to a whole new level.  Shadows are easier, lines are clearer, and organizing is all around better.  I’m very excited if this is my first real work with Illustrator, I can only get better right?  I’ll keep you all posted as I continue to draw art like this.

As I finished up drawing Catwoman, I got the idea in my head to kinda go through my process of drawing with you guys. It will be very similar to the walk through of how I maintain my blog. Overall it’s a very interesting concept and I’ve learned A LOT in my journey as an amateur artist. Let me remind everyone: I am not an art major. Almost the exact actually, an engineer. So I have no real knowledge of how this is supposed to be done. The method I use is a rudimentary method of drawing some very amateur sketches. As I get more ambitious, I learn new things and methods that certainly make things easier as I apply them to whatever I draw. My most recent and ambitious project as of late is this Catwoman sketch which is still a work in progress. But I decided to take a break and kinda take you step by step with what I do.

List of Materials:

  • Graphics tablet and pen
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Internet
  • Imagination

Read below for my step by step process. The main idea of this blog is simple: create a layer for everything. You’ll see why below. Please comment if you have any questions or critiques to make things easier! I don’t intend this post to be a guide. There are much better guides out there, it’s more of a documentation of my experiences. I’ll try and explain my steps with helpful screen caps to keep things clear. If you however want more details on this, I can certainly answer any questions you might have for me in the comment section below. I check this blog often so I’ll likely respond to your comments fairly quickly!

The changes keep coming here at Banana Scoop.  I’m trying to stay on top of things more than ever now a days.  It seems like we’re gathering much of the strength we haven’t had in a while, and I’m hoping that’s a good thing.  By no means is that a reason to stop.  I’m using the momentum we’re gaining as a fuel.  I’m finding all my old contacts of blog circles and updating my information to get the Scoop out there as much as possible.  Besides these updates,  there are a couple of announcements I’d like to mention.  Read below for some of the highlights and the pertaining details.

The Opening of the Live Discussion Page

The Live Discussion Page, located at the top, is a place where casual conversation about ANYTHING can happen.  I’ll gladly partake in the conversation and I hope you will partake in any other threads we have going on.  Movies, TV, love lives, anything you wanna get off our chest to the internet world is in your grasp.  Wordpress only allows 10 indentations per post, so if discussions get wildy, just create a new thread for us to go off of.  I’ve already started if off by asking what you guys are watching on television this summer.  Go here now and get involved!

Universidaze makes a triumphant return as my Bamboo Tablet is clearly working again!

The tablet is alive!!!  I reset all my preferences and my Bamboo Tablet is back in business.  For the first time in a long time, here’s a Sunday Sketch.  My ‘Batman Universe as Children’ gallery gets another addition with young Victor and Nora Fries play by the pool.  The future Mr. Freeze finds a neat astronaut suit action figure while Nora steals his favorite water gun.

Another Universidazeless week ladies and gents.  My tablet is on the fritz and the above photo is a work on progress I started last week to post that hasn’t moved since then.  It’s the worst, but I’ve sent an email to Wacom to check my options.  Hopefully they’ll have a solution so that I may start drawing again.  Until then, I’ll take this one post break to possibly catch up on some other posts I need to finish up.

Enjoy your Hump Day.

It’s probably more poor planning that it is the excuse I’m going to give.  But I wasn’t able to finish this week’s comic primarily because my Bamboo Tablet is on the fritz and when the tablet is on the fritz, then no new comics can be made.  I’m sorry for the inconvenience.  Sure I tried to do it the night before, and simply giving up is a lot worse than trying to at least troubleshoot it, but I said, what the heck, readers can stand one break.

As a poorly kept promise, I’ll try to come up with two comics next week or release this week’s would be comic to be this Sunday’s Sketch.  Thanks for hanging together with us.
