    Happy Halloween month... I didn't even think about these being sort of "spooky", but... A quartet of vamp drawings I've been working on for a weird Canadian comic book company:
    Photobucket

    Photobucket

    Photobucket

    Photobucket

    I like how they turned out, but I drew them separately so that I could put them wherever I wanted in a few final compositions, but now I'm having trouble finding perfect spots for them, so... Oh well. I'll have to just play around with them more.

    @frequentcontributor: These are great! The second one's Conan the Vampirian, right? Haha. And the fourth one should learn better table manners and stop eating with his hands.

    I've started working on the second Inkbook by inking my daily sketches from July-August. Trying to do one piece a day. Here's the first three.

    01 the thinker
    02 the pattern
    03 the rocker

    @frequentcontributor, brilliant! Love the color choice.

    Here's my weekly Peas Webcomic. This week I paid tribute to the Wildstorm universe with Midnighter trying to join DC proper.

    Andrew, I LOVE those drawings! Stellar work!
    And now the opposite of stellar work; my un-used concept sketches for this week's CAPTAIN AMERICA remake thread. A WHITECHAPEL EXCLUSIVE:


    And the final movie poster version I went with:

    You really gave Cap one helluva gun in that top right sketch there, Paul...

    That's what war is all about, eh? Who's got the biggest "gun". I figured let's just get it out in the open and save everyone a lot of hassle.
    I always loved George Carlin's routine about that:
    "What" They've got bigger dicks than us? BOMB THEM!"

    @Paul Sizer - really cool female Captain America concept - I'm definitely intrigued!

    @frequentcontributor Also, loving the creepy orange-background drawings, especially the last of the quartet!

    I've been working on this poster here for a really creepy graphic novel, The Tumor, which has nothing to with cancer but everything to do with a lonely man searching for love and finding it in a really strange place. I don't want to give the story away, but it's a very innovative concept.
    Anyways, the poster was rejected and we're making another one (I'll put the new one up as soon as I can for comparison)- so here's a Whitechapel/Flickr collab exclusive - check it out, the art is sick.

    Btw, the website for the book is here.

    Sizer: Something sick inside me wants to see all those rejects as a super-team, running around and fucking up America's enemies. It's sort of like James Kochalka's Hulk Force idea, where a bunch of crappy, multi-colored Hulk clones are on a team tracking down the Hulk.

    Vera: I like the art on the poster, but I can see how there might be too many stray things happening to get a clear sense of the story, especially when I read that it's about a girl that pops out of the guy's neck! THAT should be the poster... But cool looking, nonetheless.

    EVERYONE LOVES BANK GOTHIC. I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

    Sizer, what is that font that you're constantly using? The one that you used for the title?

    Geez, what are you, some kind of font identification savant? You called it right:

    CAPTAIN AMERICA: Bureau Agency Bold (first used by me on my world famous "Kick their Axis" poster).
    All other fonts: Bank Gothic Bold
    I like Bank Gothic because it's one of the few extended faces that looks like it was designed to do so, rather than being reverse engineered to extend. Plus it's boxy and clean.

    Andrew/Frequent: Yes, I too would love to see "The League of Fucked Up Captains". I would assume the one with his dong out is the de facto leader.

    @Paul Sizer: Nice work as always. Any sketches with her mask/hood up?
    Agency extends as well.

    Unsurprisingly, I'm illustrating more cars. This one's almost finished:

    Metro 07

    After 10 months, 26 of the projected 50 for my hot rod book are now done. In the meantime I've been looking into RedBubble on a friend's recommendation, and have decided to do a calendar to help promote the book and y'know, make some money.

    I agree with you, @frequentcontributor, there's a few things not quite right with the poster... we definitely are having some marketing trouble with it because of the title which causes us to then stray too far away from the exterior part of the concept. Fingers crossed, we'll figure it out. Thanks for your feedback!

    Right, very cool, but I think you said you obscured their faces to conceal their identities? But then Captain Package there would be immediately outed by anyone who slept with him. I can see it now... [Insert Wayne's World style imaginary scene change wavy lines]

    Sheila raises her eyebrows and stares. She looks back up at Dick, and then back down again. "Oh my God," she stammers, "You're the Cap-"

    Two bullets in Sheila's face later, Captain Package walks out of the seedy hotel room, unsatisfied yet again...

    I always wanted to make a high-speed video of a drawing, to see the image appearing very fast on the paper... I finally did it last week on the festival I was talking about in the previous thread...
    Here's the result:

    Great video, Bouletto. Loved seeing the watercolors process... Were you just drawing it straight in ink without pencils? You're like R. Crumb...

    Mermaid was a commission gift for a friend.

    I did a 13th Doctor, but far FAR after the thread closed.



    I've also been "Remixing" my work in digital programs. I'd like to make large prints of these someday, they are really enjoyable to make. My two favorites so far :

    Requiem of the Surreal Solution

    Smother

    @frequentcontributor: Love the vamps, especially the last one :D

    @Bouletto: Great video :)


    So, I've posted the first one already in the Semptember thread, but that was just the drawing, here's what became of it [I've waited till it got approved by our lecturer before showing anyone else].. It's a spread page, one of three with the overall theme of 'me, myself & I'.



    And another one for college. Theme's 'probable and improbable kitchen equipment'. I'm not even trying to scan this because it's 70x100cm.

    Two more:

    05

    So far staying on time, although today I had a bit of a difficulty to start. 6 day working week can get to you (especially if you know that you'll be starting first shifts come Monday so there's barely any weekend at all).

    also, here's the original sketch for one of them (done in one take, no pencils involved)
