Conan Copy

Did a master copy of a Savage Sword of Conan page. Original by John Buscema and Tony DeZuniga. it's from issue #40 incase y'all care.

I need more control with my inks, I get hasty and just throw down lines. More anatomy reference and lighting would be a good thing to do as well but I just hate drawing with reference, it doesn't feel like drawing it feels like copying. Not like cheating copying but like "This is what an arm should look like in that position I will draw that arm this way" instead of "I'm going to draw Conan choppin' this guy's head off! With tons'a blood!"

Juggling around reference messes up my creative flow. But I know it's something you gotta do if you want to draw something right/believable. Guess I'll just memorize what everything ever looks like.

Sorry the original scan looks like it was soaked in someone's lunch.

New Homepage perhaps

So here's a rough mock up of what I got going on right now. I like it, but I'm a afraid it might be too much. What do you guys think?

Here  it is colored without TV-scan lines over it. P.S. I actually need to tinker around with the skyline a little, it's not done.

I don't mean to brag

But I'm pretty good. I've impressed myself with this one. I didn't even plan on doing this today it just happened.

It's a drawing for what's going to become my new website homepage.

Oh man

I just spent a radical week of drawing and inking trying to finish this 7 page story for PremierPulp's third issue. What a learning experience and also some kind of weird hero's journey for me. There were a lot of times I just wanted to up and quit cause pages weren't turning out the way I wanted ('cause I was rushing), started not liking the story and characters, or I just didn't think I could make the deadline. But I some how pulled through and got it done. It's pretty sloppy, but that's kind of my natural inclination. BUT IT'S DONE. and that's pretty great.

Here's my favorite page, you'll have to wait for the issue to come out to read the rest. Also here's the official preview for the magazine http://premierpulp.tumblr.com/post/28396908254/premier-pulp-3-preview-power-surge

Pretty good stuff, glad I managed to scuttle my way among these other talented artists and writers.

And here's my ink swatch I used while inking, it's just a piece of paper that I poke and prod with my brush and nib to make sure I don't drop puddles of ink onto my art. I always like how these turn out even though I don't really try to do anything with them.

and here's a scary guy I drew a couple nights ago when I had a good buzz going.

and to finish on a lighter note, here's semi-biographical comic about me.

P.S. I started a tumblr thing, but it's a bunch of things I didn't do. It just a bunch of things I like to look at or resonate with me.

Oh What do ya do with...

Lately I've been having some strange days of self reflection, 'cause I'm trying to figure out how to grow up and be responsible without actually growing up. And after a wealth of time spent wallowing around in a rut, mulling around what it is exactly I want to do with my life, What my goals should be, What I aught to be laboring towards, What kind of demeanor I should be putting forth-ward into this world when I wake up, I've come up with a solution that is satiable to my existential wanderlust; (At least for the time being.)

I've decided I'm going to become a sailor. No, I don't intend to get on a boat and sail the seven seas. Although the novelty and romance of that notion seems quite pleasing and fulfilling, which is probably what has enticed me to this volition. It's more of a metaphorical kind of sailor. I'm not exactly sure what this metaphor entails, but it feels right. And if the shoe fits; you put it on and keep walkin'. Right? So there it is. I'm a sailor now and there's nothin' you can do about it.
