Revisiting the flapper

Was reading some skimming some digital painting books. Decided to revisit one of my first posts. The flapper. Been working on it a good chunk of today, since I've been off.

Here's how it's been going.

For my friends

This is what happens when you ask things like this to a group of people like the people I know.

I love it.

Monday, December 10, 2012


So today is yet another one of my days off, and a friend had suggested I draw something that tickled my fancy. SO. here.

Aaaah the joys of facebook...

So I recently posted a facebook thread simply asking "what should I draw...?" and my facebook friends proceeded to run with that thread until it was a tangled ball of unmentionables and giggles.

I love those retards...

BUT I got a handful of whimsical and amusing ideas, so I will be drawing, or at least doodling a few.

The first of which was a friend who requested a picture of himself as an earth bender. This will take some time, so it may be done over the next few days. Other ones, a simple doodle will satisfy me.

robot, let's call you done

Finially got time to finish up the concept drawing I was working on.

Guess what I saw today...

Welp. I loved Wreck-It Ralph. Couldn't help myself, had to get on the Sugar Rush train. I'm working on the car, but I have to stop for now because I'm working black friday and if I don't try to sleep I just won't.... Enjoy.

So I'm going to be doing what I like to think of as creative weight lifting.

I like the way the robot is going, which by the way is just about done. (I changed a few colors and need to work that into the existing parts and shading. Don't wanna repost until I'm good with it.)

But to go with it I'm going to be designing a few other characters and a few places. So here is the beginning of some of my doodles. I'm not accustomed to drawing backgrounds and sets, but we are going to work on it. This is just a scribble, but here is the beginning.

almost done.

So I've been doing some doodles, little ones in pen. Most of those I've stuck on my instagram (Insertpenname is my handle if you're looking)

I'm working on what I think is going to be a short story of sorts based around the robot, but here is my progress on the robot. Might put up the doodles later, but I'm really liking where this robot is going. I'm trying to squeeze working on it in between work hours XP

still working

So I've decided to extend the body down some. The torso is pretty ornate, so I'm not sure about what I wasnt to do with the arms and the legs, but I will figure that out.

I have some ideas for this, and am really hoping to do a little project around it.

Working on a drawing, but intended to do some other things before I go to work today. I really like where this is going.
Couldn't stop, have to soon though

A little bit of concept art

Working on some concepts. Concepts are not always my thing. I get all the ideas, but sometimes they just refuse to be on paper.

minor doodles...

ugh... can't seem to draw anything.

Still no power

No power in my house, passing the time doodling and watching movies while we have a little generator power going

So this may become a thing

I had forgotten how much I really like drawing in ballpoint pen. I used to be really heavy handed with pencils, drawing in ballpoint lets you shade, but taught me to make marks that mattered since the marks can't be erased. Maybe I'll sit down with my sketch book and do this for a little bit. Nice way to pass the time since I'm off work because of Ms. Sandy. Power has been out for 3 days now.

Dress Rehearsal

So, I thought I would do another post with some things I've done in the past.

Not to wax poetic or anything, but earlier this evening I went to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower, with my little sister and got to thinking about high school, and life and all the things you think of when you watch that kind of movie.
When I was in high school I was really into what my dad called "scary clowns" that I would insist were harlequins because I had looked it up on wikipedia and thought that was fancier than clown. There were 4 that I designed and sketched very often, and carried with me into college when I painted the colored image above. I've always had a thing for masks and circuses. Won't go into the psychological implications of such information, but that's just me. I love masks, peter pan and his pirates, and super heroes.

Reminds me that sometimes you need to sit back and remember the things that matter and the things that don't, and what a family friend once said about that painting. She told me that the fact that they seemed to be making all this fanfare and the spotlights were on but no one was in the stands made her think of how most of our lives we act as though everyone is concerned with everything we do. Like sometimes we're making a big show of everything we do, and we get embarrassed or proud like people are watching, when sometimes, no one cares even the tiniest bit what we're doing. Like a dress rehearsal. A place where it's ok to mess up because no one is really watching. I hadn't thought of it that way, but I had to laugh because sometimes I tell my sister that. She gets self conscious about dancing in public. We all have our things and not that I don't sometimes too, but I realize, sometimes when you are in a crowded room dancing, who cares what anyone else thinks, because a lot of time they are so concerned with themselves there is no chance they are looking at you. This is especially true if you will never see them again, so enjoy yourself. Haha, well that's my 2 cents.

more later.

NYCC is over...

So my first Comic Con is over. I had imagined a lot of waiting in line and things, so doodles. While I did some doodles, I also saw a lot of interesting things, and met a lot of interesting people.

Got to hear Guillermo del Toro speak and be hilarious, he signed a poster for me. Also made it a habit to talk to a few strangers when I was alone. I did make a few doodles, sketching people at panels.

I got to speak to Ananth and Yuko of Johnny Wander. I've been reading Ananth's work since he worked on Apple Geeks (google it) and really admire Yuko's art. And no lie the first day I stumbled upon their table, (well I knew it was going to be there, but was so lost in the GIANT show room that I was a bit taken aback when I saw it) I think I may have made a teeny fool of myself... They are great though. My personal webcomic heroes. Yuko thinks my name is cool eeeeeeeee!!

Also got a book signed by Evan Dahm ( Rice Boy, Order of Tales, Vattu ). Been reading his comics for years. Even got a teacher at school to use the comic for his graphic narratives and website design classes. Wonder if he's still using it. Haha Wasn't sure if Mr. Dahm was pleased or embarrassed, but I was pleased and little star struck meeting all these people.
Here are some doodles. The girl I actually gave away to a woman sitting next to me in line. The boy I drew on the train. My friend had read me a tidbit about how when trees get too cold they sometimes explode because of the dryness contracting the bark and the sap expanding. Wanna do a picture of jack frost now. I don't think I will make him quite that young, but it would be cool... more later.

urge to paint

So Today I got the urge to start painting on something old. Something that I started a while ago, but just couldn't get the momentum to keep going on, or rather it just wasn't the right color scheme. So here is a little more work on it and I broke apart some of the layers to show the steps.
What can I say. I have a thing for jelly fish...

In the meantime

So while I'm working on something other things, I thought maybe I would post my progress on a few projects or some other things from the past. So far I haven't put anything on this site that reflects any of my paintings or other drawings. So here is a little bit of that work.
Here's just a smattering of things I've done. Maybe I'll do more later


SO I'm going to Comic Con for the first time. I'm SUPER excited AND to top it all off, they accidentally sent me a pro badge. For the noobs (*coughlikemecough*), the pro on the badge stands for professional, meaning you are an artist of some sort. Well... turns out I am... so I totally could have applied, but since I didn't this is an awesome and wonderful surprise. I have a few other things I'm working on. Freelancing is going good, client really likes the sketches, moving on to modeling soon. Got something else lined up that I'm trying really hard not to jinx... Fingers crossed, hope to finish this picture today and do more leading up to comic con. Going to a wedding today, so will add on when I get a chance to repost later tonight.

What's up.

So recently I have been drawing, but I'm working on a little freelance for someone I know. He's planning on making a pitch to a toy company and needs some 3D mockups for a better idea of what he wants the toys to look like I haven't gotten permission to post that work just yet. I'll see after he takes a look at the next round of sketches. more to come

Been spending many hours moving points.

So despite the SUPER wonky geometry that I need to fix, I'm slowly making progress on my most recent project. Cuddles the octopus...

Starting a CG Project. I have a thing for undersea creatures. The weirder they are, the happier I am

Being super productive on my day off...

Do I really need to say anything about this...

More later. Trying to decide how I want to do this...
Page layouts have generally not been my thing, so I'm fiddling with some ideas.

10:15 a.m.

At work for a few minutes during my break...

Google+ Owls

So a buddy of mine invited me to a Google+ hangout where a bunch of her friends got on to chat and sketch and things. This seems to be one of the things that popped up in my brain. Also worked a bit on the bodyclock criminal sketch from way back when. Hoping to make something good out of that. But I give you owls.

Allergic to Harry Potter...

So I have never been a huge Harry Potter fan. I never read any of the books or saw any of the movies. I know a few details here and there from friends who love the series. (Who kick me and punch at me when I tell them that I am allergic to Harry Potter)

Recently I got a pocket watch necklace that everyone kept asking "Oh is that a time turner?" and being the type of Harry Potter fan I am, I had NO IDEA what they were talking about. So I smiled and nodded.

Then a few buddies at work explained to me the connection, and I said no it wasn't, but at Otakon where I got the necklace someone had made a watch that looked like the snitch from... from...

and as I struggled to recall the name of the sport I said "Err... Squidditch..."

It's Quidditch, I've been told.

But this, this is Squidditch.

Back back baaaack

So in the last month or so a bunch has happened. As I left you know I went to Disney World. Then I came back and got promoted to full time at my job, had another weekend off, and then attended Otakon... A looooot has been going on. But! back. posting a doodle I made while I was out. Hoping to work on some more complete things this month and apply for some positions I'm really excited about and hoping to get. Fingers crossed...

Been a bit

So it's been a bit since I had a moment to post, but still sketching
