    Mercurial love that stuff. Got a Bill Sienkiewicz-ish vibe there almost. I mean that as a compliment.

    @Sizer I mentioned it (sort of) in the Draw Each Other thread. I think it would be a smashing idea!

    Hey all, sorry for being away for so long. Bit of creative block, then massive amount of head down and working.

    You all have been doing some AMAZING work this month and last. Wish I'd been around to comment on all of it as it was happening.

    Some of the sketches I've done since the beginning of the month, from most recent to oldest.

    Robbi Rodriguez's character "Frankie" from Frankie Get Your Gun




    Red Riding Hood



    Iron Fist


    Speedy


    The Bride of Frankenstein


    Batman



    Barbarella


    Constantine

    @kevinmellon, Really amazing brushwork! I like the sequential study on your site too.



    Last week was FCBD, but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to catch up on reading until this morning. The big surprise was the free Mickey Mouse issue, reprinting a story by Floyd Gottfredson. I was really struck with how gorgeously drawn the cartooning was, but the story really pulled me in too. I guess somewhere along the way, I had written off Disney cartoon characters. Turns out I just wasn’t looking at quality reprints of the greatest material. I’m definitely going to pick up the hard cover next month, I need more Gottfredson in my life.

    In the meantime, I’ve been feverously working on more Big Boy pages, really wrestling with style, wanting to push it more into cartooning, and away form the silver-agey beginnings I had originally intended for it. Combining what I’ve learned from Osamu and Gottfredson, it’s really starting to come together. Looking forward to showing you the work soon!

    A poster I've been working on the past month. Trying to get enough together to sell to help finance my move to Russia next year :)

    Farkin' A, Mellon, when you come back, you come back with a vengeance!

    @kyle latino - Thank you, sir! And thanks for noticing the panel study. Been trying to do more of that stuff to keep myself from doing the same shit over and over.

    @paul sizer - I try!

    Sorry for the bad photo quality on this one:
    lady Nick Fury

    Yeti,Sasquatch

    Reno Bike Project,David Lynch

    Three new paintings done for the Reno Bike Project, will be on sale at the Northstar resort in Lake Tahoe this weekend for the Tour of California bike race. I did four paintings last month that were bike related and sold, but my camera was out of commission, so I didn't get any photos, which is a bummer. Hoping to make a little more money on these ones...

    Damn, Kevin Mellon's going Amaze-balls this month with that work. Great stuff. And what is that Big Boy thing by Kyle Latino? Looks cool. Want more...

    Here is the very brief segment of animation that I did in March (I think...). Crazy stuff would have happened eventually, but I was animating chronologically. Because I don't know how to animate to existing audio, I was going to do the voices later...
  10.  (9826.135)
    @ frequent wow - the animation looks wild and I love the una banda de mostruosita (damn I wish that title was pastable I had to scroll up six times get even close)

    also digging that @ eightser

    (as well as everything else but sheeit I ain't listing the mellon, mrmcdaniel, kyle and chris g because I'm tired of scrolling back and forth for correct spellings names I forgot after the una banda incident, now)

    @frequent I really like your character designs. The animation seemed really smooth and natural as well.

    @kevinmellon…awesome! Great to see you back.
    @chris g…nice.
    @frequent….lovely stylised look.

    fun and play and trying to learn sketch-up for integration/short-cutting. Efficiency of process is hard work.
  13.  (9826.139)
    some lovely pin light!

    @jp Stargazer - Thank you!
    @eightser - Thanks! Lovely portrait.
    @frequent - hahaha. That's my goal, to amaze balls. :)
    @hey apathy -ha! Did I miss a kerfluffle over something silly?
    @mojo - Thank you and great action in that sketch.
