5/12/2018 Streaming News

I streamed again today. I got some new progress done, added Leprechaun Squire and did a bit more refining where it needs to be, values could use more work and the texture variety is lacking.
I won’t be stream next week as I’ll be at Anime Central hanging out. I’ll be streaming the week after though.
I thought I would get my comic done by now but other freelance opportunities and my stupid procrastination and perfectionism has put the comic in a perpetual 90% finished state that I can’t push through. I’m realizing this now and I’m gonna just let go, edit my lettering and get to drawing a cover and making my stupid zine already!

4/21/2018 Rat Kingdom Painting

For my latest stream, I did something new where I painted my Rat Kingdom sketch I did a while ago.

In other good news, I am only one page of coloring away from completing Shirley’s Day! I’ll probably rework the lettering a bit and add a cover page, but I am very close to the completion of this three year project!

3-19-2017 Another Week Down of Art

I managed to flat up this larger first panel and make a few new friends on Mixer, so I’ve made decent progress!

I’m feeling nervous trying to complete this comic. It’s slower than I want and I worry that I won’t finish in time for C2E2.

Sketch I worked on in my car during times before work.

Concept Sketch for the Rat Queen and the Rodent Kingdom. They include (in clockwise) Squirrel Leprechaun, The Undead Sword Rat, Rat Captain, and…this bat with one eyebrow…

I still haven’t figured out names since I just sketch them without a real concrete story behind them yet. I just know they should be antagonists to Cole Blackmask, or even just tricksters. Who knows.

Page 4 Progress

I made more progress on my comic for the last livestream of 2017.

With this page in particular, I was nervous about the daunting task of inking a large background again, but through determination and a need to have a regular stream ready for that night, I pressed forward and made more progress than if I worried about how I could go about it too long.

I also have a few sketches I’ve done over the week.

More progress on Comics

I’ve been continuing to work hard on my comic and thanks to my streams and all who support it,  I managed to finish inking my second page of my now seven page comic.

It’s only three months until C2E2 and I gotta get it ready in time to show to people!

 

I also forgot to mention that I finished this marker request that I had WIPs of!

The original marker drawing of Deadpool Vs. Hulk is currently up for sale on Etsy for $180!

If you want it it’s yours, as this is a first come first serve thing.

I’ve also been doing some other sketch drawing, most of them digital, more of them not scanned. I’ve notably been trying out Krita for the first time! It’s has a decent pencil tool so far so it feel alright for me to sketch in. I’ll more things to say as I tackle drawing in it some more.

12-11-2017 Finally! Comics!

I finally got back on the comic making saddle!

Thanks to having a shred of accountability during my streams, I got more comic progress done than I ever did for most of the year!

With my day job and doing my small commissions, I’d all but abandoned the short comic I’ve been working on and off for the past two years!

Hopefully with my current live streams, I’ll be more encouraged to work on comics again.

Also, here are few art things I scanned that I forgot to post here.
