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.

Drawings from ECCC 2012, part 1

Shoulda put these up a long time ago!  I did as many sketches as I possibly could at ECCC, but sometimes it wasn’t practical with the crowds.  Here’s some of the ones I remembered to take pictures of!

There’s about three posts worth of these guys, I’ll try to spread ‘em out a bit.

You guys should know, I’m really good at drawing guns.

Cecilia and Death portraits.  Digitally colored ink and marker drawings.

I actually did these drawings back in 2010 as sketchbook drawings, but Ananth and I liked them so much that they got colored for the Benign Kingdom book.

Gosh, so many people have been asking for the continuation of Girl with the Skeleton Hand, and I want so badly to get on their next story!  Ananth already has it written and everything!  But there’s so much on my plate as it is and I am such a painfully slow artist. :|  (But there will be more, I promise!)

grüss vom death und cecilia.  photoshop.
Today’s comic over at Johnny Wander, with Death and Cecilia dressed as Krampus and St. Nicholas.  We wanted to do something festive-y since it’ll be our last update before Christmas.  Ananth did a really fun news post with some really neat vintage postcards over in the blog, too.
I’m have some neat Kramupses queued up over at my reference blog, so keep an eye out on Christmas Eve and Christmas!

Girl with the Skeleton Hand Epilogue pencils.  Finished illustration at Johnny Wander.
I’ve recently started to really enjoy digital inking.  Mostly because my pencils are so small, it’s hard to retain detail with real-media ink.  The original drawing is about 4.5” inches across, then I scanned it in, blew it up and inked it in Photoshop.
I’ve also recently started to kind of come around on blue pencils?  I’ve hated them for so many years, mostly because I tend to overwork things and areas become waxy and then they won’t take ink or pencil or wash.  Still, it’s so nice not having to erase my lines.
OH AND HEY.  Today I’m going to be working on an illustration for the Game of Thrones Minizine.  Submissions are due June 26th! 8D

Girl with the Skeleton Hand preview.  Full page at Johnny Wander.
Epilogue illustration!  I’m not posting a full high-res image because we have been playing with the idea of doing donation wallpapers.  Man, it was fun to do full-color again, but all my other comics work fell to the wayside.  I’m way behind schedule now!
I have not forgotten my promise of dinosaurs!  There will be dinosaurs.  Maybe tomorrow, maybe Thursday!

Oh maaannns, last page of the story!  This one killed me, although it was mostly the heat that did it.  I hope you guys dug it. :D

Death body-type drawing.  Due to popular demand.
He’s intentionally a generic looking dude and, being a silhouette, I thought he’d draw the eye too much in the lineup.  But a lot of people wanted him in there!  So here he is, with Cecilia.

A bit back, Ananth and I sold the leftover sketchbooks from NEWW with a choice of drawing inside.  I’ve been going a bit overboard with these.
The Cecilia and Death drawings are being done to mirror each other.
