Some Sculpting

I started some sculpting the other night. I'm making a gargoyle puppet I think. I'm just kinda making it as I go. I've been sketching the body and what he might look like.  I'll be casting him in foam as soon as my mold making materials arrive from smooth-on.  To be fair, right now he's mostly tin foil as not to make him to heavy. He's baked and ready to go though for casting!


Some WIPs

I can't bring myself to finishing any particular drawing, but here's a few WIPS I've got goin on.

Just a barbarian and some cool poses, some quick doodle I did of Kermit and I playing banjo (with young troy watching) and a space layout that I started. Meh.

So it's been a really long time because I was a lumberjack and stuff for a while.

Came home, played Mass Effect, and just started playing "Playstation All-Stars".   It's okay.

Here's Sweettooth, because he's awesome.  WIP, hopefully get more done soon.  I just built a stop motion stage, and will be starting on puppets tomorrow to actually do some animating. So, there's that as well.

I haven't drawn things in a while, so I'm hoping this will help get me back into it.

Day 01 Friend Chosen Challenge

New Draw Challenge, each day the topic is chosen by a new friend.  My friend Tim Bauer chose "Scheming Scientist" for today.  I didn't have much time to work on this one, but I plan on working/redoing it later (sure, Troy, just like allllll the other ones).  Have to be at work in a few hours, and worked late tonight.  Anyway, here it is!

Octopuses/Octopi/Octipidies are awesome. There is no correct way to pluralize Octopus.

Figure Drawings

Hey gang!

Sorry about no posts recently, I've been moved up in the retail world (...hooray) and have been working more than fulltime now, so my drawing schedule has been pretty sporadic.  I'm hoping to get back inot the swing of things by next week for my birthday.

Anywho, I had some of my figure drawings photographed by my friend Ryan, and I figured I'd post em.  I couldn't find 3 of my favorite drawings, so I'm pretty disappointed in that, I guess they just got lost in the move back to Michigan, which is a huge bummer.

So, here's some b-team figure drawings.

More art soon, just got my copy of After Effects goin, so I'm going to be posting my progress in animatics soon!

Some Random Doodles


I did some drawing on paper today, and I realized how much easier it is on paper for me to draw than it is on this tiny little tablet of mine.

I decided to try working on just some posing with this pen to try and see if I can keep up "electronically" as much as I can with paper and pencil.

I was also listening to a lot of Amon Amarth, so, vikings.

This first one is Tor/Thor fighting J├Âmungandr, the World Serpent, at the end of Ragnarok.  The story goes that during Ragnarok (the end of the world) J├Âmungandr comes up from the sea and poisons the sky- and Thor, mightiest of the gods, confronts the beast.  As Thor deals the killing blow with his hammer, he is knicked by one of the serpent's teeth in it's death rattles, and is poisoned. His duty done, and Midgard/Earth protected, he takes nine paces, and falls over dead from the poison.

The second drawing is me passed out at my light table (happening a lot recently) only to be taken to Valhalla by the woman of my dreams, a Valkyrie.  Valkyries were the chosen "Angels" of Odin, who were sent to collect the souls of the bravest warriors and take them to Valhalla, where they'd eternally feast and drink during the night, and fight all day- a training regimen in preparation for, you guessed it, Ragnarok.
I was trying to not go with the "Hurr durr, look at my scantly clad warrior woman", and made her look more like a warrior woman should.  I messed up on her left (our right) arm.  I should probably fix it, but meh.

Hope you enjoyed the Norse bit!  I'm going camping this weekend, so no Saturday posts!  I will be taking my sketchbook with me though, and I hope to do some life drawing!

Left Over Avengers: Thor!

Yeah, I kinda fell off the "Avengers Challenge" wagon, but here's a Thor WIP!

Trying to get more of a "Painted" feel, I started with color first.  Gonna give it some more work.

I got some editing to do for a demo reel!  Gonna try and get me a job!

Day 04: Iron Man (Really, Really Late)

Heya kiddos,

Here's my Iron Man!

Took f**kin long enough, eh?  To make up for it, here's some WIPs with the real deal. rest for the wicked.  On to draw some Loki!

Halfway through drawing the proton cannon, I thought "I don't feel like drawing this anymore", so I just put in my reference art (the proton cannon from MvC:2).

Sorry Hawkeye, but you're dumb to me and I'm skipping you because I'm so far behind.

A little behind on the Avengers Draw Challenge...

Hey Gang!

I've fallen a bit behind on my draw challenge, but I swear to you, I'll have them caught up by tomorrow night.  I got super set back because of work, and it's really thrown me off my game.

I'm trying a new inking process that Angel showed me in Photoshop, and it's just taken a lot longer to work out the kinks for myself.  Iron Man and Loki should be done by tomorrow night, and hopefully a WIP Spiderman or Ant-Man.  My Iron Man is almost done, there's just a lot of details that I've been working on.

Here's a WIP!

Hopefully, a finished Iron Man tomorrow.  And yes, that is a Proton Cannon.

I'm out!

Day 03: Black Widow

God, I hate Black Widow.  She's just a pair of boobs to make comic reading 'easier' for a guy.  I don't think there's been one remarkable thing about her, besides the fact she's some convoluted like quintuple agent for a whole bunch of different people.

Anyway, here's some giant tits with a gun.

Ironman tomorrow.

Day 02: Hulkin Out!

My goal was to try and crank out finished drawings within 3 hours or so.  I'm changing that goal now.  I had so many good ideas for Hulk that would have just taken me far longer than 3 hours.  In fact, I felt rushed with this one, and I forgot to redo the muscles in his arms to make him look buff, and not like a 12 year olds drawing of buff guys.

Anywho, here's this one for ya!  HULK DRAW!

Black Widow tomorrow!

See you kids then!

Avengers Hype!

Been a while!  6 months, but I promise I've been drawing! I SWEAR TO THOR!

Anywho, my friends and I started an Avengers "Draw Challenge", or "Draw something from the list every day".  Today was the first day, and here we have good ol' Cap!

This was an experiment in style, trying to get more of a poster feel than a character feel.  It's got potential, and I should probably work on it more, but for right now, this is all it gets.  I also just realized I forgot the stripes in Cap's waist.   That will be fixed later.  They were due at midnight, so this is what I'm turning in!

That's all for now, check back for another post tomorrow!
