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!!!

Meet Rook

Hey gang! I know I havent posted in a while but I'm super busy with my Monster P.D. project. Good news, Theirs going to be more 3d backgrounds in the short. woot woot. cant wait to show em to you. Anyways heres the new and final design of Rook. I gave him holding lines and to sweeten him up I borrowed a texture from a Jose Agreda ilo. love his stuff.

R.I.P. Heath Ledger

As a kid i would always steel my dad's newspaper, and after reading the comics I would trace most of the pictures with a pen, and then hang it on the refrigerator. Today, to warm up before a big session, I'll pick out an image from the web and trace over it in Flash.

Two weeks ago I picked Heath Ledger in all his Joker glory, but I never finished it. I heard the tragic news of his death from my gf Cristy. I couldnt belive it, but after browsing on a few tabloid sites I was convinced. So when I got home i decided to finish this piece, in honor of a great talent that was taken too early in his carreer.

RIP Heath Ledger

Fresh out of the oven!

So I'm done with finals...kind of! i have 1 left and I don't have to turn it in till the beginning of next quarter. but other than that I'm done! Anyway' I just finished these two monsters for my short, their really detailed...well for me they are, these two probably took about 3 hours, from research/sketch/to finish. Hope you guys and gals like them, and let me know what you think about it. thanks for stopping by.

This first one is a Namor-ish One-eye Giant Mermaid man who is leading the attack from the sea in my short.When i first did this sketch i did it without the beard, but somewhere along the way i added it.

Alright this one took me a while. This is the Giant Ass Turtle from the previous post. That design on his back is Aztec and he has a giant hand print on the shell, and that's from the main villain...MANO PELUDA!!!!! that's it for now, ill post some more goodies soon!
