Last night I recorded a test drive of Art Rage 2.5 where I painted this little cutie.
I'm really impressed with all the features Art Rage offers at only $25. Not going to replace Photoshop for me, but it's fun to mess with.

My second test strip for Yellow Peril. Worked out a lot of kinks so I think I'm ready to go.
I like the invisible border thing and the shrunken border in panel two. Also going to be using some simple shading. Turns out I color much faster in gray scale than in color.
I also recorded a video of me inking this thing for Monster Cutie so you can check it out if you're interested.

This is my first test strip for my next project. I'm probably going to do a few more of these to work out some kinks (especially the lettering). For once, the coloring took no time at all. Man, I should have done this earlier.
I'm sort of documenting my progress and thoughts about what this all means at the Making of Yellow Peril podcast which is a bit cart-before-the-horsey, but whatever. It's the interwebs!

Here's the final toy design that I submitted to Patchtogether. His hat comes off as another monster that flies around and his arms are removable so you can do your own tattoo design. He needs your votes!

My take on Cupid's ex-wife, Psyche. Okay, so in the myth they kind of live happily ever after depending on the version. But in my version, she divorces him. I really like the wave tattoo on her right side. Gonna have to spend some time really designing that.
More studies of Cupid, Elite Tactical Love Commando and DeeDee, my version of Aphrodite. Cupid's shirt has a cute monkey, Luv Mun, that will make the same expression as he is. I think.
I was going to do more studies of DeeDee, but I really love her aloof expression.
One of the many crazy ideas I've been kicking around on the subway. These are some pretty horrible character studies for a crazy, Shonen-style take on Cupid. See, instead of using arrows to make people fall in love, he kinda just chucks them at each other. Love can be messy and painful. Whubam!

Clearly, the cutie has yet to get inked. But this is a design I'm working on that I'm hoping to submit to Patch Together. Ideally, his arms would move and the hat would come off to be its own monster. All that's left is to design the tattoo and he'll be ready to go.

So here's what I came up with. No fun action lines. My friends have this awesome idea to create a convention style guide for their wedding and are including some of their favorite artists based on a theme of giant robots, Japanese maples, and girls with glasses.
Might do a color version when I have more time.

I'm entering in this year's Design By Humans Halloweek contest. This is my entry. The design is based on the traditional Hanya masks in Noh theater, but with a little twist.
If you like it, you can vote for me here!

I found this old sketch book from 2002 that still had a boat load of pages to fill. So I grabbed a big stonkin' bag of cheap ass Papermate ballpoint pens at the CVS and decided to work on some shading on my morning and evening commutes. This is the first thing I spewed out.

Hawk challenged me and Fred to draw Batman vs. the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I wimped out and just drew one turtle.
This is the black and white version. Used a brush to ink the outlines and rendered with pencil and ink washes.
I recently started reposting my old webcomic to Flickr. Trying to figure out a way to integrate it with my blog, but for now, you can check out my albums to see my old stuff. Right now, Angry Zen Master Vol.1 is all that's up there, but there will be more. Oh yes, there will be more.

Hope you like my interpretation, Ross! The System kicks all kinds of ass. A webcomic MUST read!

Here's a cute but horribly depressing one page comic I did for the Fat Chunk Volume. 2 collection. I like doing these one page comics. I have half a mind to do a series of cute but horribly wrong comics, but I'll let that one simmer for a bit.

More concepts for my Pacman horror idea. Wanted to get some more details for the mouth and all. Long tongues are always a good hallmark of creepy horror monsters. A few more of these concepts and I'll be ready to paint something up nice and proper.
