I like Hooks

This is the re-design of the old sailor from one of my pitches called A Sailors Tale. i love playing with curves and sharp edges when I'm designing a character. I'm going to draw some more using this technique. You gotta love that UPA style.Aww and this handsome fellow is for the short I'm currently working on right now called MONSTER P.D.: All Monsters Attack. It takes place in the future with a 1940's style thats why he's wearing the paper boy hat.

Venom is one of many of my favorite characters in the Marvel universe, simple design but with alot of attitude. One thing I fell in love with about this character is that T-rex jaw he has. Freak'n awesome!!!

Here's the breakdown of Venom.
1) I sketched him out with a purple Prismacolor col-erase pencil, then I went over it with a .7 led mechanical pencil. I did'nt like the head I originally sketched so i drew another one in a post it note.

2) Once I'm satisfied with the sketch I import it into Flash and start tracing the sketch in my whack-ass wacom tablet using the brush tool.

3)Then I dropped in the color for his suit into the line layer. Then I selected the color, copied, deleted it on the line layer, added a new layer under it and placed in place the color. And I added a gradient.

4) Added shadow.....then I took a shit.

5) After my Mud Butt, I added the white on his spider symbol, eyes and added teeth.

6) Finally, I found a bloody tampon and used it as my background.

Hope this helps, and thanks for stopping by buddies!!!
