monster romance vs anime boy venn diagram.  photoshop, childhood obsession.
I was thinking about that thing I said yesterday, about how I only like drawing two types of dudes: lovesick beastmen and white-haired anime bois with Problems.  And, oh wait false alarm, it looks like I’m only into lovesick beastmen.  why am i admitting this to the internet.
Since I’m certain people will be asking for the names of these dudes, I’ll give a rundown from left to right in the three rows:
Kenner the beastman, who still likes his exNicholas the android with a codfish face, who actually is not quite so lovesick as just has a wife and daughter who he loves more than anythingGrey the clone of a dead god, who needs to figure himself outDhio the prehistoric dog-turned-god, who has a huge crush on his coworkerPythias the dragon, who has less problems now that he is marriedSidere the god of lust, who needs to check himself before he wrecks himselfDeath the psychopomp, who needs to get out moreNorth the garuda, who is in love with his best friend’s wifeRaitaro the dragon, who has low self-esteem
Some day I will do one million comics about everyone.

Engwish Bwudd, 2007.  Acrylic/mixed media/collage on wood, 12”x12”.  Nostalgia Monday.
Whew, finally back in NYC!  It’s been a long day.  This is a painting I did in either my junior or senior year of college — we were supposed to do an interpretation of the first 30 seconds of a song, I chose Engwish Bwudd by Man Man.  I’m not sure if this was ever posted online?
A hint: it helps if you listen to the song and follow each figure for two beats in the first line and four beats in the second and third lines.  There’s some hidden characters in there, primarily Forza and myself and Pythias smack in the middle.
There’s a lot of flawed stuff about this painting, but I’m still fond of it— mostly because it’s so drastically different than anything I’d ever made before or since.  It’s hanging in our living room.

Sandor Clegane.  Again.  I can stop whenever I want, bro.  Procrastination doodles.
Haven’t done a Fanart Friday in a while, so I scanned this out of my sketchbook.  I found this amazing pre-production sketch of the Hound’s helm from the HBO show and wanted to riff on it.  And then it kind of kept on going I guess. :|  Stupidly tall broad-shoulded dudes, let me love you.
Oh hey Pythias what are you doing there.
(same deal as always, please keep away from spoilers in the comments)

Eldred Family Portrait.  Photoshop.
In the intense heat of the weekend, Ananth and myself and cat sequestered ourselves into the air conditioned bedroom and didn’t come out until Monday.  I took the time to do a bit of noodly painting on the burning hot Cintiq in recompense for not braving the heat outside.
Pythias and his Dragon Family (Ame his wife, Quetzal their daughter).  He’s also that red dragon I posted the doodle of last week.  These folks are some of my very oldest characters, they’ve been following me around since late middle school/early high school.  I love them all dearly.

Pythias.  Brush & texture experimentation.  Photoshop.
Tried to make a custom Photoshop crowquill brush, inked an old doodle of Pythias.  Tried to emulate a cheap, oldtimey block print.  Didn’t do so great. :/
OH HEY so while we’re on the subject of Pythias.  I started a image reference blog over at pythias.tumblr.com — it’ll be a tagged catalogue of my liked page.  If you like weird illustration/photography/tattoos/iconography with indecipherable tags, maybe it is a thing you will like!  Ananth also just made a reference blog over at alifeofcrime, so take a gander over there as well.
(Aw man, just figured out that you can make a sub-blog from the same login and avoid that sign in/sign out tango.  Oh well, it doesn’t look like you can consolidate tumblrs, so Pythias can live in Chrome.)

Character Body Type Lineup: Boys
A continuation of yesterday’s body-type lineup.  I wanted a bit more variation, so there’s an extra dude in there.  Tomorrow, I’ll post a giant wallpaper of everyone together with a few extra characters.
