First Post of the New Year!!!

Wow...WOW! 7 months. It took me 7 months (almost 8) to Update this page. I'm actually a lil' disappointed about that, but at least I've been keeping up with the drawing, which is why this is going to be a COLOSSAL post! I have a good 20 something pages, and that's me being selective about what i want to put up.

Before I start posting all these drawings, I wanted to say what an Awesome year 2008 was. Sooo much went down last year, both Negative and Positive. I wont get into it now since this a sketch blog, not a "this is what's happening in my life" blog. Besides, I don't think that the 2 of you who actually read this thing, care all that much. lol

So Without further adue, I give you: my soul... ok that was too deep. Here are my sketches Bitches!!

**DISCLAIMER**I probably wont be updating this page for at least a month. Why you ask? Street Fighter 4 Mother F***ers!! That's Why!!!

I can never get tired of drawing super heroes!! I really like how the Hulk's face turned out, and Wolverine overall look. Not sure who the unfinished guy was, maybe a reference point so I don't make Wolverine to tall (he's only 5'3. Anything else you hear is a lie!!) Fat-Batman make me laugh. I'm gonna have to re-draw him with a better background...and you know...better :P

Girls, girls , girls, girls. Girls I do adore. Except for that ugly one. I was thinking I should make my own pin up girl a-la Dean Yeagle (Really amazing artist. Check him out if you can). The naked girl was one of my co-workers idea. I was sitting at my desk, sketching (off the clock) but I wasn't sure what to draw. Him being a guy said I should draw some nekid girl. So I did. Turned out pretty decent. The shaded one was from a random camping trip. One of my friends let me sketch her. Also turned out good.

So remember how I had to do an independent film for my last year of school? Well I do. Anyways, when I first took animation, my initial plan was to do a fight scene for my film. Fast forward 4 years and I ended up unfinished, dialog heavy, no fights film. Since I was a bit displeased with how it turned out. I decided to think up the film I've always wanted, but I still wanted to implement what my teachers thought me: Good original story, beginning middle end, all that stuff. So I present to you my concept art for my new independent film; "Cat VS Baby". The premise is pretty simple. Cat is jealous because baby gets more attention, so cat tries to kill baby, but Baby don't play that shit yo!

I gotta say, I really enjoy Drawing these characters. I'm in love with the baby's design. He's fun and easy to draw, and he has attitude (well I think so anyways :p ) I also like how the cat turned out. He looks a little old and disgruntle although his design could still use some work so he'll most likely be changing in the coming months, but his initial look, I like.

Good ol' Street Fighter. Can't wait for #4 to come out and let it consume my life. Mind you these sketches where done waaaaay before the game was even close to being released. I really liked how Akuma's overall look turned out in this one. If I could simplify it just a bit more, I might be able to make him animation friendly. Ryu's drawing was done near the end of my previous sketch book. I've been thinking of drawing him walk off into the sunset at the end of each sketch book, so I can compare how much better I get with each book. One of my preferred drawings actually.

Yay, random sketches of stuff. 1) I call him the Napalmer...get it. yea. He shoots fire, from his palms. I was trying to experiment and draw something completely different from what I usually draw. 2) This wonderful work of art came from when me and my friends where playing the game of Life. One of my friends wouldn't stop having babies in the game, another one of my friends said "She keeps farting out babies". I think you see why couldn't not draw that. 3) Ninja in his underwear!! 4) oh god, what the hell is going on here...ok we got: A Transformer, dude doing a Shoryuken, a giant Eye, Superman, Darth Vader, and some Chun Li's. Oh, and while we're on the subject of Chun Li, I gotta say, her new movie doesn't look that promising. Will it be better than the first street fighter movie? That's not hard to beat. Will it be a good movie on it's own? I doubt it...I really doubt it. Transfomrers 2 on the other hand looks effin wicked!!

Yay, more superheroes!! Now with more Villain! This bad guy over here is called Darkseid (no that's not a typo, his name is actually written that way) I usually give short history for characters but if I do I'll never finish updating this thing so click on his name. It's a link to wiki page explaining his origins. Now, Spidey on the other hand needs no origin explaining. We all know the story. I really like this drawing. I felt that considering the love I have for this character, I should have a good drawing to show for it. I can see a few flaws with the drawing now that the "honeymoon" is over, but I still like it. We'll see how I feel about it 6 months from now. lol

Ever wonder what would happen if Babies where actually evil and carnivorous...? Well I did, and this happened. Moral of the story: Use a condom!
Another evil character is Ryu, when he's possessed by the dark hado. I'm not even gonna attempt to explain it, so just look at the pretty picture and smile :D

Here are some character sketches for my web comic: The Summercrew. Me and a buddy of mine work on it and update it...every now and again. It's basically the story of us and our friends getting into random miss adventures. Check it out (by clicking the link).

More lovely ladies. One is from a story of mine that's in the works. The other is just some random naked girl with cloth.

...and finally, last but certainly not least, some forced perspective drawings. Forced perspective is a lot of fun, and siuts my style very well I find. (super sketchy) It gives it a very graffiti feel. I liked the first one so much that I decided to clean it up and color it using Photoshop. I plan on coloring the other one as well, and I plan on doing a lot more of these.

Whew! That's all folks. If you took the time to go through all of this then I really apreciate. If you have any comments or constructive criticism to give, don't be a stranger. I promise to post more often (it was one of my resolutions for the year) but like I said in the disclaimer, don't expect any in the following 4 weeks. Street Fighter 4 gets my undived attention during that time. Anyways see you all soon!!
