With this page my Echelon project is done. The more I draw the more I learn. Got another project setup and plan on starting that before the new year. So glad I've made progress and can now setup a whole page which gives me more time to put in details. Post something you like about the page and something you dislike.…Continue
Pg 20 I had actually finished the week before last, but finally took a photo last night to post today, so that's progress I guess. Page 21 I finished this week.Continue
Confession: I actually finished this last week, but didn't want to hassle with my slow computer taking so long to upload one photo let alone two. I have been working this week, don't worry, and will post next week showing next week's progress.
Time to kick off the…Continue
This comp I did today, first time in (pretty sure) over a year I've done inks. One of the church's I go to is asking for donations for a nearby Foster program, one of the requested items is beginner art kits for kids and teenagers. After seeing that I thought an art kit would be cool, but…Continue
Here's the page I've been working on for the past 2 or so weeks. I was trying to do 4 pages a month, but with Jon Acuff's advice of cutting goals in half, I feel I can put more detail into each frame on the page. My problem still is consistency though, making an honest, intentional, conscience effort to draw.…Continue
So I got a new scanner/printer and I'm hoping to post something new each week for critiques or just to show that I'm still drawing. Of course the problem is I can only scan in Grayscale and I don't have the money (or the time) to ink digitally. If anybody has any suggestions for quick touchups that are cheaper than schilling out for a full Photoshop subscription, please let me know.
This one is older, think I drew it last year sometime.…Continue
Never been confident I could freehand, but I thought it I started with the jawline and go from there, that would be a good starting point. Though outside input is always helpful: does this suck or is it not bad?…Continue
Can't remember if I posted this concept before, but got the urge to do it over last night.
Leave a comment if you got the…
I was tooling with different techniques for drawing the face. The left is one technique I've always defaulted to, the right is a newer technique I stumbled over online. Which one do you think looks more organic? realistic? better? etc.
Any comment is appreciated.…Continue
I would've posted sooner, but this project had 2 objectives:
1. get back into drawing a full issue in a set amount of time.
2. create a birthday gift for my bro with an idea I had been sitting on for years.
So, since tomorrow is his birthday, I will post the bday issue here, pencils and dialog.
Feel free to comment or critique, just remember the 1 to 1 rule: if for every comment of what you didn't like, you have to post a comment of what…Continue
I'm still kicking and still drawing. Been drawing alot more these days, thanks to God's provision in the form of "Quitter" by Jon Acuff, pick it up if you get the chance.
The reason for this post is help on deciding my next art project. I'm almost done with my current project, posting soon, and need a new one to work on, progress through, and learn from.
I'm hoping you guys can help me choose my next project. I'll list the titles below…Continue
Yep, Still drawing.
Alot has happened these past 3 or so weeks. Difficult to explain and probably too much to put in one blog post. I've been drawing more consistently than I have in a long time, and I want to be intentional about it. make it a daily habit instead of highs…Continue
The things we carry-Continue
Loaded down, feel the weight,
All this with me I take
Wince under the load of this carry on
I take it with me anywhere, everywhere n beyond
So much cargo n the packing list only gets longer
This has to be the 20th time I've done this same setup of green lanterns: Kilowog in the background, Hal Jordan on the right, John Stewart on the left, I originally had Katma Nui in the center holding the lantern battery, but found out she was more a warner bros creation…Continue

It looks like I won't make it to Phoenix comicon this year. This will break the streak at 8 years. Money is tight, I'm flying out the next day to see my niece for the first time. This sucks, I really wish I could make it work. I will miss being there this year. Maybe this will give me extra time to come back stronger the next year, might even have a table there, God willing.

Dan Lee and Brien Sparling, this is for you.
This was the interim art project I was mentioning. The title was just a working title, but I really couldn't think of a better one. I just did the 4 pages of the original idea, didn't want to get bogged down in back story and such. Deliver the sizzle as it were. I also took a crack at dialog, mainly just to get a feel for putting in word bubbles and framing. i wrote the dialog, and I want to state for the record I never set out…Continue
Finished my interim art project, only problem is I don't have the A4 scanner was planning on having at this point, I loathe the thought of going back to my old computer and scanning each page a 1/2 at a time and having that ugly black line through the center of it. And my old computer is just that, old. Might not even be able to handle composting and touching up 4 pages of artwork. I seem to be in the stage of life where I just get stuck. Blech.
Looking to upgrade from my old photoshop 7 to a newer version. A photographer buddy of mine suggested getting photoshop elements instead of the full blown photoshop. For drawings and comic art, is photoshop elements a better choice over the complete package of Photoshop? (i did find out elements doesn't support CMYK, which is what's needed to print, right?)
