    @ Egypt Urnash Woooo, I like it :)

    Egypt -- I love the colour palette and line style. Intrigued enough by the story to continue reading it. (For the record: There's only 2 webcomics that I consistently read, so take this as a pretty big compliment from me.)

    @ JP Stargazer; Just a pinch of debt and property that once was owned by my grandfather... which I hold 2 percent of and the rest don't wish to buy me out. Now the taxes have faulted and it's just a big mess. A no-claim sort of deal and the Tax Man Cometh. It has ate up a lot my free time lately. My daughter now talks, in the meanwhile, and points out my tats as "triangle" or "circle." So that's been a good distraction.

    @ Egypt Urnash; Those are some serious pages. Stellar.

    @ VertigoJones;

    Illustrator + Photoshop, yes'um.

    I'm making the transition to Sketchpad Pro/Wacom for my lines... but for now, I'm still using Illustrator lining/Photoshop finger-painting with my laptop touchpad.

    @ no cuddle time; The atmosphere of your worlds are so intense. Fantastic work.

    nice one Michael Shea!

    Not new in the least, I drew it back in 2008.

    Back then, Casey and Octomom were in all the headlines. It was a satire piece.


    Not really opening or meaning to bring up this discussion since the America media have flogged the dead-horse to death... and in 2010, the Octomom was doing fetish porn so the concept is way-lost. The general idea being that Octomom would have had to attack Casey to gain popular opinion back.

    Hopefully one or two of you will get a laugh at it.

    The result of a brainstorm in the room.


    Brit, Roo, and EbuillentSoul all suggest T-shirts.

    UPDATE: After Roo and I (mostly Roo - thank her for the color and awesome scuzzy textures) tinkered with it a bit, here's a colored and upgraded version.

    Yet another one on it's way:

    blue recline

    I know these all are pretty much figure study drawings of women, and that seems to be all I do. At present it more or less is. I've gone back and forth over whether or not to start pushing outside of my simple inclinations. I don't think I will, yet. Just doing iterations on basically the same subject has been leading to technical skill advances that are really measurable. I can really see how much better things are emerging than the kinds of things I was doing years ago.

    For example, here is a comparable pose from 2007:


    And this is one of the better rendered studies I managed from that same year:


    They both look rough and unspecific, compared to what I've been managing this year. Back then I was trying as hard as I could to do what I'm doing now, but those were as close as I could get. I'm so much closer now.

    I don't really know how to explain why I only draw nude women these days. I guess that sounds absurd, because, well - nude women! Who doesn't want to look at them? But it really isn't that. There's just serenity and tension and weight and bone and balance in these bodies, and I don't understand it yet, so I just have to keep trying to model it in ink and chalk. Now I'm just trusting that, at some point, soon I think, something more meaningful will coalesce. A few of the drawings lately are going that way, they'll be more complete.

    But I don't want to steer it. I want it to just happen, I want it to surprise me, so I'm going to just do what I feel like doing, and trust it.

    Besides, @Dorkmuffin told me I should.
