more character studies and stuff

I'm going home this weekend. I'm so excited. HOME. It'll be nice to taste a bit of freedom. 4 day holiday. Get to reunite with family and friends, and then get sucked right back into the abyss known as DW.

Anyways here's more stuff to fill space. I actually SCANNED my pages in now, and they're inked. Now I need to color them.
Almost being productive now. I also did the thing I had to for Carly (after 5 months)
Working on some Civil War merch. Because money for plane tickets and money for producing the books is really helpful.

I had tonsillitis for a bit, and that wasn't very exciting. Uhm....Can't really think of anything too exciting. Just wasting space on MM, so in the future when people are trying to remember the old internet they can have a viable case against Mom and Pop blogs and their space filling bullshit.

Holy CRAP!

So, you know how I said that we were meeting with our prospective web-developer? We'll uh, yeah. The guy is a BADASS! We weren't expecting the site to go live for a few months, but from the looks of things, everything could be ready to go within two weeks. Two weeks people. Yeah, it's nuts. We're checking out server prices and domain names today. It looks like is going to be our best bet.

So, here's what I need from you guys. I need banners for your comics in our links section. Now, I was just going to use the ones we have here at MM, but if you wanted other ones to be used, then let me know. Also, I need opinions on our site layout. Below is a screen-shot of how it's going to look. The only thing I need to comment on is the top banner, the one from the UT comic. That picture is just a filler, that header will be replaced with transparent pictures of the characters in various dress. Like, badass new game coming out? Characters dressed up like that. Just a quick picture that we can change whenever. So, I know that banner looks awkward, it's just filler for now.

So, what do you think?

Fun things indeed-

So, fun stuff happening on the Acquired Taste front my friends! I had the first meeting with our prospective web developer today! He's a great guy, and pretty much just what we're looking for. Funny thing? I went to high-school with em! Nuts eh? But yeah, he sure as hell knows he's stuff, so maybe (just maybe) the actual site might be up in time for WW-TX! So, I'll be working on that over the next few weeks, as well as wildly scrambling to finish midterms. Oh dearie me. Thats coming up isn't it?! DAMN!

Also, I've been working on drawing those damn women folk. I've just kind of avoided it until now, but I'm really gonna have to learn how to draw them. So, here as some quick sketches, inked and made glossy with a ten minute coloring job. Heh.

I think the one of her walking away is my favorite, but I'm getting the hang of it. Here is another one I did for Priceman. He did a fan art piece for me a looooong time ago, and I just now got around to making him one.

Thats his man character Zera. She's a fun one to use as a model, especially for bitchin' action shots. Although, I wish I would have played around more with the perspective in this one, I like the way it turned out. And I sent it to him on his b-day! What are the odds?

So, you crazy cats, I'll keep ya posted on the progress of everything, and I will see ya soon! Shazam!

(Acadia, I don't think your head is smelly or stupid. ;D)



Itty bitty living space

I single handedly failed our apartment because of "my half of the room" which had only laundry.

I know, I know. I've posted like nothing in ages. Right now I'm totally working on learning how to animate in flash, I've got some things I've wanted to do and can't do them in comic form. Good news is that I've got 2 sketched out and paneled pages for my comic, I just need to ink them.

This picture is from a study chart I've been doing for the characters, because I'm going to start getting pretty in depth with this animation stuff. Lucie apparently broke her knees in the full color shot. Whatever, or she has to poo. Good times. Can't wait till Texas. It's going to be a blast. I NEED to REALLY get some new stuff out. Riot and I've talked about updating Civil War, so expect that one day in the future. Good times ahead! Table 2 for Life!

Allan and Pixie, we'll represent you in our hearts.

To appease the masses I have sketched a cliche action villain (because of the fedora, lapels, and cigarette he is considered cliche). Hope you enjoy, masses!

I'll have more to come in the following days... but I should probably go to sleep!

'S Been a while

So I've been aft (away from tablet) for a while, and I figured I should make some sort of post to make sure that people didn't think I was dead.

Oh, and look, I drew a cool thing.
That's about it.

I'm off to actually work on my own comic.


Edit: I colored it.

Look what I can do ma!

I just drew a Dire penguin. Why? Because I can.

So things are going well lately, I finally got everything settled in in my room well enough that I can have my own little drawing station. It's really nice, and even the mini-fridge is within arms reach! It'll encourage me to draw more, as well as give me a place to work. Booyah.

Here, check it out. -

Cool eh?

And for a preview, a little somethin' I'm working on for our favorite evil pixie. Shhhh, don't tell her though, it's a surprise. ;D

Alright kids, thats it for today! I'm gonna order some Chinese take out and get ready for work. Lata!

Sir Terry

A sketch done for Kota of The Errant Apprentice fame. It's one of my favorite comics, and should be one of yours, too! Seriously, go read it. Now, damn it!

Tuesday, September 4, 2007


Just a quick sketch I did of me and madscott. Yes, I'm wearing an Optimus Prime helmet. I'm trying to get in the habit of doing quick sketches again so that WWTX will be sketch-filled.

nothing special

So i called in sick today and i drew the next page of one of my comics. It's all penciled out. That's two pages penciled just gotta ink them!

I've been going to sleep to episodes of Lupin the III and I'm in love with that show. I've also gone back and reread lucie and i'm quite disappointed with the artwork in it. So I'll be working harder on making the coming pages look clean and consistent. I'm also displeased with the talking heads aspect. I need more action frames. Anyways the lupin aspects of style have always been in my male characters, but I wouldn't be surprised to see more of them coming up soon. For example:
here's something i sketched really quick and whipped some colors on them in 10 minutes on photoshop. nothing special. But the hands and the pants are especially lupin-esque. I don't really notice it when I'm drawing.

more art coming soon.

Reasons for my current want to draw again:
Ian Jones Quartey has new work and he was an inspiration.
Josh mirman has new projects.
Bran Wing and everyone else are back now.
I have something due for the DD Awards Presentations.
WWTX is where I'll be next and I need new material for it.
I just turned another year older a month ago and I realize that time is flying too fast and I need to make something out of what I'm doing (Damn your success Allan at such a young age)
I miss drawing.
