illustration friday: Communication

So I'm a little late with this one but I needed something to take my mind off of work, so I went and threw this together. I gotta tell yah though, my body is dying on the inside. I was up most of last night moving into the new apartment ,so just about everything hurts. It's a bit smaller but it's a threebedder, which means new roomate...which also means less money I have to pay for rent (which is nice).
I'll have to take some pics of the new place's pretty classy.
Anyway, it's a great looking wednesday, I gotta be moved by thursday evening...and I still have to work my 9 to 5.
Yeah, the rest of this week is gonna be great.

old chessnut...or something

So recently I've decided to devote a little more time to an older project that i haven't had much time with but has really gotten alot of my friends interested. i don't know for sure if it has enough play value to be something "good" but at the least it mite be fun. the only thing that makes it difficult is that it requires alot of robots...ALOT of robots.
So I've been wasting most of today just thinking up robot designs...most of them are knock-offs of ones from famous and not so famous robots from other cartoons. I'm not I can come up with enough designs that the ones that are obvious rips won't be SO obvious.
Anyway, it's still a ways off before i think I'll have somehting that's all around good. Grumble.
Sometimes I wish I knew a few more people who felt like working on stuff for fun instead of it NEEDING to be a "hit" idea. Ah well.

thursday morning.

I worked on this one a little later in the day and decided to post it. Course now i think I'm pulling alot form Ashley Wood. I don't mind but...He's just not for me. Gotta keep working on it. Also i think I'm missing out on something that the other ones had before...I think I'm trying to hard to "blend" everything.
The others looked better when there was still a sorta...quick brush look to them or something.

Not sure if they're getting better or just...something.

Monday Afternoon.

Man, can't believe i went so many days without doing something.
Oh well, I still think i've done ALOT better at keeping up with this here blog in the last couple of weeks then ever before. I suppose when I've just got SO much it's stupid then I'll be able to say something.
Anyway, I've never felt that i'd really gotten down how to do "painterly" type stuff on photoshop.
mostly i'm talking about those amazing concept pieces that you see movie books that look like paint but then you read they were done in digital...blows my mind.
So for the longest I've been trying to get that look's a slow slow process unfortunately.
This is looking pretty good though, hopefully i can repeat what i did here later, if I'm lucky.

Tuesday Afternoon.

I figured I needed one more something before the day was done. i think my "idea well" is starting to run out though, it took me forever to think of SOMETHING to draw. Oh well.

Twilight, night-night.

It seemed like everyone and their grandmother was drawing a picture of Midna so I decided to give it a try...but now i think the helmet is on backwards. I really wish I could find a "good" picture of her though so I could get the tattoos down.
Also I could have just spent more time on the image itself, hah.

Box your Ears.

This is a old, old idea that came from me and couple friends talking with a professor in college. Se he came from a rather interesting part of south america called Caracas ( Just from the name it sounds exotic, right?). He would regale us with stories of his childhood and some of the most absurd "doings" that happen in his beloved homeland; something to do with cowboys that I can't really talk's weird, i'll put it that way. Anyway, as a laugh I just started blurting out all the "things he would do as a youth" until I blurted out something stupid...which was the idea of "Shark Boxing". At first, it seemed REALLY stupid but then...Come on. How manly and awesome a sport would that be? Think about the type of person it would take to challege a shark to box.
That's TRUE grit.
Anyway, I hadn't thought about it for a good long while until this morning, so I thought I'd just do something up as it's terribley slow at the ol job today. Enjoy.

illustration Friday: Sprout

I figured I hadn't done one in awhile and this one was fun and quick to try. Not original but, oh well.

Raising of the Nose

Apparently I've just become "to good" for this blog because I just don't seem to be adding anything new recently. I suppose that's how it goes when you don't have make the time to just draw up some stuff and scan it. Well, let's see if 2007 and the coming of my birthday will change a few things. A whole year older and alot more willing to draw.
Rock the Casbah.
