For anyone looking for INKtober 2015 sketches head over to papercutkids.com or to the official Facebook page for daily updates. I put restrictions on myself to only do characters from The Papercut Kids and Derelicts, a boy and his robot tale. I’m curious to see if rules and restrictions truly bolsters creative thought or if I hit a motivational wall. I’ll also have an INKtober 2015 gallery up in November.
So click on over and I hope you enjoy!
I guess with #SDCC2015 in full swing I had been feeling the pull of super heroics on my drawing hand. A series of pen and ink and marker studies done for kicks, or as the kid likes to say, “for S&G’s”. I have one more set that I’ve yet to do, but will get their own post because without even knowing how they’ll turn out, they’ll deserve they’re own post.
*ominous sound* *filtered breathing*
In the meantime enjoy these li’l guys.
Here’s a look at the actual 9×12 bristol boards
The Marvel page came first and the thought process was, “You should just draw little headshots of characters you like” said the smart lady who keeps me out of trouble by keeping me busy. So I did, but just went about it all willy-nilly like a leaf on the wind (bring back Firefly… oh, ok).
Having a chance to think about it I stuck Bats in the middle and had his rogues gallery all directed at him, because… narrative? I don’t know, but I like it. It ultimately doesn’t matter because I’ll be cutting them apart and selling them off at some point. More on that soon…
I loved me some Daredevil on Netflix and, heaven help me, I enjoyed the second season of Agents of SHIELD (in that way you enjoy goofball shows in the background whilst toiling away on your own goofy endeavors). SHIELD is also on Netflix if you care, you’rewelcomeverymuch! The fine folks over at Nerds of Color wrote a very fun piece on how SHIELD is the new Firefly. Read it here.
Below is the itch that needed to be scratched after consuming so much nerdy content. Final art and process pics. If you’re a colorist looking to dabble feel free to grab the BW and go to town. If you post your work just give credit where credit’s due!
Hope you enjoy!
short spoiler-free review.
rage fueled film making capturing an unrelenting kaleidoscope of a fever dream. uncommon clarity of vision for a horizon on fire and characters, mad every last one, racing to the inferno.
“No sympathy for the Devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride…and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well…maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.” – Hunter S. Thompson
Yeah, the kids don’t think that’s a great way to spend their time either. This is the wrap up of the current strip that you can take a gander at over here. Don’t worry there’ll be more coming down the pike!
Enjoy your weekend and go see the Avengers! Marvel Studios really needs the help being a small indie studio and all.
Just a little image dump of some in-progress strips I’ve done as warm-ups and writing exercises. I love me some comic books and will ride-or-die for funny books until my eyes fall back into my skull, BUT I’ve always had a deep, deep appreciation for comic strips. Calvin and Hobbes, ZITS, The Farside, Doonsbury, The Boondocks… the list is long and varied but suffice to say that they’ve all influenced me in one way or another.
This is my nod to the doodle gods.
If you want to see the finished strips just head on over to papercutkids.com, scroll to the bottom and click the box. OR just click this.
That’s much easier.
… and invitation to go check out a more holiday themed strip over at the Papercut Kids site. Click that and enjoy!
Have a Happy Easter and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
