Here's a preview of the headlining story in Screw Comics! #3. The first two issues I did grey tones right on the original art work. Recently though, due to variations in materials and scanning capabilities I wasn't sure how the grey tones would look with the type of paper I used. Instead of chancing it and possibly ruining all 61 pages of the original art, I decided to keep the art straight ink and do the greys digitally. Although the work is extremely tedious, the results are OUTSTANDING. Take a look. The name of the story is 'Heavy Duty Judy and the Two PJs'. If you picked up issue #2 then the 'Coming Next Issue' page filled you in. Plus, there's still time to cop issue two! ---------------------------------------->
Wrapping up this short month with cool sketches, commissions, and character studies:
Commission piece for the Adorable art collection. Check that collection here.
Beginning stages for art for local band Tax the Wolf and their upcoming project.
And of course, plenty of character studies:
The Rat King
Sexy ass Casey Jones
The Millionare Matchmaker
Poke the cat and his owner
Punk girl study
Not only that, but I finished 61 pages towards the new issue of Screw Comics! #3
I look forward to scanning this piece. Sike! There's some 90's humor for ya. That sums it up. I'm in a bit of a hurry so that's it for now!
Been working with a writer friend of mine, Van, and we're putting together a treatment for a children's book. Basically, a "what it could look like" type deal where I illustrated select pages from the story. I tweeted snippets earlier this week, but now I present to you the full illustrations.
for the hulking boxer character I referred to a memory of a person I saw when I was in Brooklyn. This guy reminded me of the leader of the Gramercy Riffs from The Warriors, so I attempted to channel that feel.
The guy I would see around looked like this guy and had his demeanor, but was super ripped.
In other news, Screw Comics! #3 is coming together swimmingly. I hope to have it out by Comicpalooza this May. Just keeping on my toes! I'll be posting more updates and images on the FB page so LIKE LIKE LIKE so you don't miss them.
That and a NEW Shotgun Blast double ish as well...
New year, new banner! I've been itching to change up the image for the last few months, but nothing epic and dramatic was coming to mind. I started doodling and drawing the star characters from the latest (J)RPG I've been playing, Dragon Quest 5, and that's when ideas started to spring to mind.
Hero and wife
Hero and family
In this particular game you battle monsters, collect loot and equipment, and level up and all that jazz. But what stands out about this game's story is how it spans 3 generations. During the course of the game you grow up, get married (you get to choose between 3 women to marry), and then raise kids of your own. It's a really intriguing story, and it makes you care for the characters. Hell, they're family!
I'm right near the end. I'm kinda sad that it's already coming to an end but it's been a fun quest.
For the new banner I drew the hero attacking a large cycloptic monster, it really happens in the game. To go with the theme of the image I decided to hand draw an appropriated re-wording of the Dragon Quest logo. After I pieced the elements together I felt it still lacked something compositionally. That's when i added a simple border on the corners to keep your eye corralled. The borders really tied it together for its internet presentation. And there you have it.On another note, I started a Tumblr for all my erotic drawings. I have so much of this work, and I keep producing it so I started to crave a separate home for all this unique stuff. If you're 18+ feel free to check it out and follow Tissue Cupcakes.
