Around Christmas time I was dutifully taking sermon notes at church and the preacher said that angel that appeared to Mary scared her pretty bad so it musta been one intimidating looking angel so I’m thinking he probably looked pretty much exactly like this.… Continue Reading “Christmas Sermon Notes”
This guy is desperately trying to get back to his spaceship before the parking meteor runs out. Another iPad/Procreate/sketchbook page.
Day three of dumping Procreate sketches onto this site. Here’s a spaceman… and you know what ya gotta do when you see a spaceman… ya gotta park in it, man!
Here’s my day two post dump. A random character from one of my sketchbook pages that I rendered out on an iPad with Procreate.
My social media is totally out of control. I’ve got some things posted here, I’ve got other things posted there, I’ve got some internet sites with absolutely nothing on them… probably not the best game plan for your “internet presence” so I’m going to… Continue Reading “Outa Control”
I’m old school when it comes to drawing. I still enjoy using a pencil and paper, but I love to apply color digitally. I’ve been posting 30 second videos on Instagram lately of some quick color sketchbook stuff I’ve been doing with the Procreate… Continue Reading “Importing Images Into Procreate”
So the sermon at church the other day was about a buncha knuckleheads that were trying to insult Jesus by calling him Beelzebub because Beelzebub was some kinda creepy Phoenician fly god and flies are always buzzing around poop and these religious goobers thought… Continue Reading “Lord Of The Flies”
I scribbled this guy out last Saturday as I was waiting for the football games to start. He’s one of my favorite characters from the game AC-Odyssey, Barnabas the sailor man. I still had time to kill, so I added some color and a… Continue Reading “Barnabas”
In 2011, I got an INSTAGRAM account, but never really used it because it was a “phone-only” app and extremely difficult to post artwork with, but I just discovered a workaround and now I can post artwork directly to Instagram from my computer. Now… Continue Reading “Brand New Old Stuff!”
How do I spend a typical Sunday afternoon in the fall? I take a picture of my Sunday Morning Sermon Notes with the camera on my Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16, pull that picture into Photoshop CC, plop down in a recliner with the tablet on… Continue Reading “Embellishing Sermon Notes”
I’ve just discovered something new! I typically like to start my drawings using an erasable blue pencil (a Prismacolor Col-Erase 20044 Blue) and then use a mechanical pencil (Pentel Twist-Erase) to finish the drawing. This process works fine, but I am constantly having to… Continue Reading “Erasable Color Leads”
THE FEW Comic Book Series exists in its own unique little universe… and what does that universe look like? Who knows? It’s being created from scratch one day at a time. In a perfect comic book creators world, there would be plenty of time… Continue Reading “Making Stuff Up”
In the beginning… THE FEW existed only in words on paper. But those words had to be turned into a comic book, so Todd Sanders and I became the writer/artist team for the project. The green light was given for the first three books… Continue Reading “LITTLE ZEKE GROWS UP…FAST”
Developing the character costumes for THE FEW COMIC BOOK SERIES was an interesting riddle to solve. The Few takes place in a distant future, so the characters needed to have some sort of distinctive futuristic look. The tricky part was that a four part… Continue Reading “Suiting Up THE FEW”
I received an email this morning from Doug down in South Africa. He asked if I could give him a lesson on how to construct “Dennis Jones” hands. That reminded me of a job I did a few years ago. I was designing characters to be animated and I whipped… Continue Reading “How I Draw Hands”
