New Year's Resolution: 2,011 in 2011

2,011 pages of drawing in 2011

Wednesday, January 19, 2011


Hey hey!
So I dropped a little behind these past few days because I've been up to two things:

1. Helping my girlfriend sort out some issues with her thesis (I'll post some more panels soon!)

2. Prepping for my first day of work, which was today!

Expect a big update tomorrow or the next day! But I gotta get some sleep now!

Hello all five of you that follow this blog!
I didnt get to any pages today. I was helping my girlfriend with her thesis, bouncing around ideas on how to shorten/streamline the project so it's as tight as possible.

I still want to post every day, so here are some panels I drew for her!

See ya tomorrow!

Hey hey!
So plans to people watch in Hollywood fell through. Instead I drew in a Starbucks for a while.

Then, I did some design work for a buddy that's putting a web series together.

And just when I should have been going to bed (i.e. 1:30am), I threw on one of my favorite wrestling matches of all time. Bad move, considering it's well over an hour long...

Now it's bed time!

2011-01-14 (UPDATE 01-15)

Hey guys!
I got a little more done today! One page is kind of so so, but there's a bonus page to make up for it! I plan to finish the scratchy fight pic, I just need some distance from it.
I refined it a little more today (01-15)

Expect Hollywood people watching tomorrow!

I fell a drawing short for the 13th, and I'll hopefully be able to explain why next week. Good news though!

Anyhoo, here's what I got done!

Here are some characters from a project called "the Condiment Caper"

And random monsters

Until next post!

Hey hey!
So today I drew some pretty rad drawings (at least I think so...).

The key focus today was learning folds. My friends Sherwin and April were kind enough to give me some advice on the Facebook, so I really dug in and took a look at how/why they work, and how artists utilize them in their work! Take a look at some of my older drawings, and you'll DEFINITELY see that I learned a little something today!

First up, here is some more "Katana Gunslinger" doodling. Not strictly development art, just me noodling with style/design. Most importantly, working with folds!

I told you that "Bucky O'Hare" fanart would start showing up. I've always wanted to redesign Bucky as slightly more rabbity than Michael Golden drew him, so here's yet ANOTHER attempt. I swear, I have "real Bucky" drawings going back to 2003.

I dunno... alien dude? Again, folds!

Just when I thought I was done for the night, I got really inspired and hammered out another Bucky page. I REALLY like how that full body shot came out!

Anyhoo, that was my day! See ya'll tomorrow!


PS: Yup. I just said ya'll.

Woah! I'm actually posting today's work BEFORE MIDNIGHT! Woot!

Today is a lot of "Katana Gunslinger" work. In the near future (hopefully) I'll get the script for issue 2 and start drawing, so I wanted to explore some of the upcoming characters. This is the main character, Grey, lounging after a night of work.

This is some exploration of his buddy Art. Joe hasnt provided me with much info on him yet, so I said "what if he's a fat video game nerd" and drew the pic on the right.
On the bottom right is an idea I've been trying to sell Joe on. Basically, a magic book becomes important down the line, and I told Joe that it should talk to Grey and be his sidekick. He thought it was a stupid idea but I think its an AWESOME idea.

Last we've got some penguins! I'm just playing with how many different ways you can draw a penguin and still have it look like a penguin.

Until tomorrow!

Hey folks!
I'm pretty excited about today's drawings. They're mostly of original characters from "David Hammerfist" and from "Fearbot."

First up, some more explorations of the character Fearbot.

Next up is a page of Emily. Well, except for that long haired dude toward the upper right...
The basic idea behind "Fearbot" is that our main character, the Fearbot J03, falls for his gearhead mechanic Emily in a future Jetsons-meets-Blade-Runner world that constantly falls under Kaiju attack.

Last is David Hammerfist in a "Young Justice" style...
Oh yeah, Batman's in that one too!

Until tomorrow!

Hey hey.
Here are a lot of drawings from a project I've been working with my friends called "Fearbot."

But first, A COLORED PIECE! HOLY BALLS! I'm going to try to do one of these each week. I'd much rather draw, then on to the next one, but I know it's good practice!

I wanted to do a graphic-ish Mega Man piece in his classic jumping pose. I'm pretty darn happy with it!

But here are my drawings! A lot are from a project I'm working on with some friends called "Fearbot."

More "Fearbot," but this time of Fearbot. I drew these after discovering Ashley Wood. I'm probably the last of my friends to discover this guy's work, but WOW.

Until tomorrow!


PS: Any suggestions/requests on what to draw? If I dont get any you'll be seeing a loooooot of "Bucky O'Hare" fanart and "Fearbot" drawings...

Hey hey!
Today I went people watching with Christie, Jen, and Rafael. It was great! The 3rd Street Promenade has so many different kinds of people, from all walks of life, so there's a huge variety of people to draw.

Hopefully we'll be people watching next weekend too! Drawing with friends is way more fun than drawing alone...

Until tomorrow!

So tonight I was at this awesome party thrown by the Animation Guild, and some friends and I decided to go people watching tomorrow. So that's what to expect for Saturday!

But today I've got a really random bunch of drawings.

This is a John Carter page. The spider-fellow is Ghek, super-psychic and emotionless until he meets Tara of Helium. On the right is an unfinished Tars Tarkas. I expect to finish this one down the line.

This page has some costume doodles, mostly troubleshooting my halloween costume from 2 Halloweens ago, Tars Tarkas!

This is a "Superman" page! This styles is from me fusing some "Young Justice" studies with the "Gargoyles" studies.

Until tomorrow!

So tonight I did a ton of studies from "Gargoyles," and I think something really clicked.

You can kind of see it on this first page with the David Hammerfist heads.

It really starts to show up here with the Jokers, though.

And definitely on this last page with the Katana Gunslingers. I'm diggin that fusion of the "Avatar" and the "Gargoyles" styles.

Looking back at it, the "Gargoyles" characters are VERY solidly drawn. Their features are exaggerated too, since they're very human-like monsters. I think this makes the "tricks" that create a solid drawing more obvious, so that when you look at a more subtle human character you able to say "hey, that's the same thing they did with Goliath, only very subtle because it's a woman and not a giant purple monster."

Forgive the rant. It helps me sort out what I got from my studies.

So until tomorrow (or later today...)

Hey hey,
These are from the 5th but I didnt get around to posting them earlier.

I was doing a lot of "Avatar the Last Airbender" studies. Man, that's a great lookin show! I love it when I can pop on a DVD and the drawings are good enough that I can pause any frame and work from that. Not all are that good looking...


Not my best page... Joker and David Hammerfist here, and tonight's studies have already given me some insight as to what doesnt work with these...

I drew these while at dinner with my girlfriend Lis and my friend Sotta.

You can see some of the "Avatar" influence in these guys.

I'm right on track with the drawings from my head, but I'm a bit behind with the studies. I'll catch up though!

Until later today when I post YESTERDAY'S pictures!


PS: I know there's only a tiny trickle of people that actually look at this blog, but if any of you happen to say "I KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT DRAWING" and you feel like doing a draw over, I'd REALLY REALLY appreciate it! The whole point of this undertaking is to level up my art and to learn every single day!

2011-01-04 (a day late...)

I was tired last night so I didnt post until now, but I think I got some pretty cool drawings in!

Here are some re-design doodles of "David Hammerfist," from my film "David Hammerfist: Hammerfists of Fury." On day Matt and I will do another Hammerfist adventure...

Random doodles...

This last page is another attempt at my favorite DC character, the Joker.

Until later tonight!

Hey folks!
So this is a random bunch of drawings.

This is a page of (mostly) Katana Gunslingers, a type of hero from a comic I drew last year.

This is a redesign attempt at the Storm Toads from "Bucky O'Hare," one of my favorite retro-properties. There will probably be a TON from BOH up here.

My friendwas telling me about a project he's working on and I asked if I could draw some pics of the main character. This is All (pronounced "Al"). It's kind of a philosophical dissection of god and the spiritual realm.

Anyhoo, see ya tomorrow!
