Coppertone Thor

WELL, here’s another post that shows how backlogged I am with drawings:

2014-11-24 Thor

When I originally drew this it was HOT out. I was so bothered that I couldn’t concentrate on what I was supposed to be working on, and to distract myself I drew this.

BECAUSE, GUYS.

So we’ve got Toothgnasher and Toothgrider helping make the homage complete. I work with kids, so I make sure what’s in my sketchbook is PG. I really don’t know how low pants can be pulled before it’s inappropriate. Hopefully I struck the right balance?

Thanks for stopping!

The Greatest Guardian

My birthday was the day after the release date for Guardians of the Galaxy, and I knew going in that Marvel had crafted a birthday present just for me.

While I knew I was going to love it, I never anticipated that Marvel would throw in the GREATEST Guardian of the Galaxy character:

2014-11-17 Cosmo

His ongoing feud with Rocket was one of my favorite parts of the Abnett and Lanning run. Just…there was so much that’s great about Cosmo. A psychic cosmonaut dog that guarded over the citizens of KNOWHERE. He even thinks with a Russian accent!

I went to the theater with people who hadn’t read the comic, and they had no notion as to why I jumped when the camera panned to this guy.

But you guys get it.

Doodled Dragons

I did these guys foooorever ago. A friend asked if I’d help out with a new venture. That project of his is going pretty well, so I might be drawing more of these characters?

We’ll see!

2014-11-10 DragonKidComp 2014-11-10 DragonGroupCompDragons are fun to draw, so it’d be a cool way to pass the time.

I’m Smarter

I don’t know where my art career is going, but I think I’m closer and closer to figuring out how I want to proceed with it.

Which is neat and exciting and induces hyperventilation and fear of failure all at once.

YAY.

I have been drawing pretty consistently since my last post. A lot of it falls into the, “Unfinished” category – so there’ll be some huge art dumps in the future, but until then I’ll toss out what I have done.

Like the last of the con dinos:

This event was such a blast. I can’t believe how lucky I am to have the jobs I do.

I want to make promises about schedules and such, but I’ve only ever been consistent about inconsistency. Honestly, I’m probably in the best situation I’ve ever been to keep up regular posts. However, there are a few projects and possibilities in the sidelines. If those took off, maintaining a website schedule would be second priority.

Additionally, I’ve been spending time playing through the Final Fantasy series. So…that’s obviously more important than drawing.

I’m glad we’re all on the same page.

Girl Meets Dinosaur

2014-04-28-Brachiosaurus

I want to pretend that it wasn’t intentional, but it might be nearly guaranteed that from now until fall I’ll be posting dinosaurs pretty regularly.

With most of my personal projects, I tend to go with whatever feels right at the time. And the next two I’ve lined up are a lot of terrible lizards.

I’ve also resolved that I’ll stop semi-apologizing for it. I love dinosaurs, that’s why I’m doing these pieces in the first place.

Thanks for stopping!

 

There is No End

 

…to the amount of dinosaurs I will post.

Seriously, looking down the pipeline, it may be dinosaurs forever. Or just next week. I am working on 100% non-dinosaur projects, but I don’t want to post those until they’re much nearer completion. Effectively, you’re stuck with whatever happens to grace my sketchbook.

In conclusion, dinosaurs.

First, a nice dinosaur reader.

Then we’ve got an alternate reality of the “End of the Dinosaurs”.

2014-04-17-Flip Extinction

Ah, if only dinos had super powers.

You’re So Pretty

 

Oh so pretty.

2014-04-10-Pretty Dinosaur

My favorite way to draw dinosaurs is usually with no feathers. At least when it comes to the bulbous way I like to draw T-Rex ( à la last post). But I feel super guilty for perpetuating a false understanding of dinosaurs. Like I’m one of those bozos that still think brontosaurs is a thing.

So here’s feathers galore. And he’s stunning.

I Made a Comic

 

It’s a mini centered around an idea I had a very long time ago. I’m really happy that I finally found the time to just sit down and make it. It has strong language, so I’d rate it 18+. But if that doesn’t make you shy away, I’d be obliged if you would read it.

It’s not a big thing, but it’s completion means a lot to me. I’ve never had to letter, and I’ve never posted my own comic before. I mean, one that lasts over one page and that I haven’t worked with someone else on.

It also taught me what I can realistically get done. So while it’s not the best schedule, I can probably produce a comic like this every few months. I’m really stoked to finally feel like I have control over my output.
