Spill.com T-Shirt Limited Time Only!

So, shit is happening at work and its a good thing.  And this is the start of my rejuvenation.  I was starting to lose the passion and I think we are heading in the right direction now.  I will get to be less cryptic in the next month or so.  For now, here is a T-Shirt I did the artwork for.  Get it while you can!

The fantastic text was supplied by my amazing coworker and fellow artist Peter.

Waspinator

I love Waspinator.  I don't know why.  I honestly shouldn't.  He is a whiny, cowardly moron but at the end of the day, he was my favorite character from the Beast Wars Cartoon and because my buddy Braden mentioned Beast Wars, now I am drawing him instead of working on my 8 million other unfinished projects.  CURSE YOU ARTISTIC ADHD!  CURSE YOU!!!!



WIP O' DOOM!!

As the all caps title denotes, this is my WORK IN PROGRESS O' DOOM!!!  Its Starscream Prime in G1 colors.  The way it's supposed to be.  I haven't done a background yet because I am both lazy and suck at backgrounds.  But it's going to happen or else.  Or else what?  EXACTLY.

Is the room stretching?!?

I haven't gotten to do anything for me in quite a while, so now I am.  I'm starting with the Stretching Portraits from the Haunted Mansion with a Marvel twist.  So here is the line work with a quick set of flats from Flash before I drag it into Photoshop and paint the background and add the touches to the line work to make the whole thing look painted.  I added a thumbnail of the original for simple comparison.  I hope y'all dig it!

3 Dollar Bill Cover Webcomic

So, here is a strip I did for a buddy of mine, Eric Matos, at 3DBDotCom.com

I've done a strip for him before and I always put my stupid character into the strips.   I may very well someday put up my own strips that he stars in(I actually have around 60 finished strips I just never used with my guy).  In any case, this is how it turned out.  Now get your butt over to 3DBDotCom.com and check out his stuff.  Its pretty damned funny.

RIP Jim Kelly

Some crappy news hit the web today.  Actor, martial-artist and all-around good-guy, jim Kelly died today.  So here is a homage to Black Belt Jones.

Spill.com of Future Past

So, unfortunately, Spill.com hit a few speed bumps recently and the crew and I are scrambling hard to try to pick up the pieces.  We lost some really great guys and some great creators and content, but Spill will find a way to carry on.  In leu of the turmoil, a spillio mentioned drawing Korey and Cyrus into the cover of Uncanny X-Men #141, with the cancelled and hiatused shows as the bounty wall.  So here's what it would look like in my mind.  I'll probably play with the faces a bit if I get time to clean it up, but this is as far as I got for now.

Weight Lifter

So, I went to a weight lifting meet a week ago, to support a buddy of mine while he picked up shit that would rip off my arms, and saw a man straight out of a cartoon.  When I saw him, I swore to myself I would "Draw that strange lookin' dude, dammit."  So I did.  And just so you know, I had to do it from memory, but I swear that's what he looked like.  The proportions are spot on and his hair was that big.  I thought it was going to get up and fly away at some point, perhaps snagging a small child from the audience to eat.

Frankencastle

Ah, the wonders of cleaning house.  I just found a vinyl character that I had picked up at Target during Halloween.  So I finally did what I had planned to(before losing it in a never ending pile of stuff).  I present to you...  THAT GUY!

Star Wars Uncut: Empire Strikes Back Part 3

Heeeere's Storyboards!!!!  Threw these down as quickly as possible so I can finally get to actual animation.  I'm getting ahead on work, so hopefully I will be able to dedicate the weekend to spearheading this project.

The Notes are actually for me, in case I can't figure out what the scribbles are when I wake up.  It is 3 AM after all.  Who knows how truly coherent I am right now.  Blah.

Star Wars Uncut: Empire Strikes Back Part 2

Okey dokey...

Here are a couple of backgrounds for the short and a quick shot of the ATAT from the scene I am working on.  Much much more to come.
