moon lizards

Just a little photoshop practice.

I have not posted in you for so long, blog!

I can't bring myself to figure out how to do any sort of naturalistic coloring with colored pencils, but slapping colors together into some kind of crazy hodgepodge works pretty well, it would seem!

Also featured: thumbnails for animation, some complete and some never started.

astonishing adventures in painting

I bought some super cheap gouache paints the other week. Conclusion: I really like gouache! Though I'm a bit cruddy at mixing the colors the way I need them, for now.

moleskine scans part END

Some more moleskine pages and a little watercolored doodle I did based off a friend's description of her dungeons and dragons character! The drawing of the pool is from the hotel I stayed at for comiccon. Oh palm trees, how I miss you.

some more animation

Here's some super rough stuff I've been working on yesterday and today. The timing's all off in some places and I need to change a bunch of drawings but HERE IS WHAT I HAVE SO FAR (hooray!)

I need to work on his reaction in this one.

finally, some animation!

I heard flash's siren song! OH NO HERE IS SOME SIMPLE ANIMATION.

It's a start, I guess. STAY TUNED FOR MORE... EVENTUALLY!

painting tests

Still trying to get into the swing of using watercolors. Eventually I'll get around to painting a bigger piece.

garden pig

old photoshop picture I haven't gotten around to finishing, probably because the composition sucks and I'd rather start from scratch

the wolfman stands around outside for no particular reason

He wore lipstick but forgot to pluck his eyebrows!  Shame, wolfman. Shame.

moleskine scans, part 6

Whale time extends into this post! As well as an extremely disturbed Toad :(

I brought my third grade sketchbook to my special man friend's house one weekend and we started drawing the sixth graders out of it. Lordy, children are ugly at that age.
Man, kids at my school took awful photos. The girl on the bottom right of the left page was ACTUALLY walleyed.

moleskine scans, part 5

Fun fact: 90 percent of my childhood was comprised of dumb ghost hunts (speculating whether or not the old lady across the street had DIED and was now a wandering spirit) and injuring myself.
I want to use the el as a setting for something... SOMEDAY. Also: a couple of people from starbucks, a creepy thing, and the beginnings of a binturong!
The Crown Fountain in Millenium Park is the best place to draw children and awkward teenagers, ever.
I think this one is kind of self explanatory.
WHAAAAALES aaand some other stuff.

moleskine scans part 4

Some concept stuff I did for work.
Zany plantlife!
This page marks another series of my failed attempts to draw a friend's cat. It moved, so it had to become a cyborg.
Drawings from a sketchcrawl in... I wanna say June? Maybe? Anyway, here's a picture of Patrick and Akira from said sketchcrawl!
The lady in the left-hand picture wasn't actually wearing a goofy war-helmet, I'm sad to say. And there was no steam powered robot, either :(

moleskine Scans, part 3

For clarification, (since at least half the people who've seen this drawing can't read my handwriting) the dog is saying "Why can't my butt be nice?"

moleskine scans, part 2

This paper takes ink pretty nicely.

My friend Jessi insisted that I draw her tiny excitable dog as a monster. So I did!

Moleskine Scans, Part 1

I finally finished scanning in my latest sketchbook - so here it is!

backlog of doodles!

Some of these are brainstorming sessions that went NOWHERE, but now that I've rediscovered them (piling up in a stray folder on my computer at work)... well, we'll see. First up: cowboys and bunnies, and cowboy bunnies.
A guy (...well, uh, THING) with weird teeth, ARM! and some other crap.

Okay, there's an actual story behind this one. Potentially. I was thinking of making some kind of short cartoon starring Morrissey (of the Smiths) and a small dog. Morrissey is disappointed in his dog for not being a vegetarian, and wackiness ensues? (Why is there a question mark there? I SHOULD KNOW)MAGICAL DANCING SQUID.

A bunch of playtipusses. Platypi? Platypussen? Anyway, these are me revisiting an old character I came up with for an animation workshop.
