Feels like I’m on to something here…
STEELHEART SKETCHES: So I’m going back to square one with Owen Steelheart. Steelheart 2.0 if you will. Basically I was reading Stan Sakai’s amazing Usagi Yojimbo and thinking “Man, I wish I had a character like this that I could tell these kind of stories with.” Then I realized “Oh, wait. I already have a character like that.” So I’m rededicating myself to doing some Steelheart stories this year but I’m starting all over with him. The first four pictures are the latest ones with me playing with the character design. I really like the third one if I can find a way to unsulk/un-frankmillerize it. The last three are the “traditional” Owen Steelheart sketches I’m posting for comparisons sake. Any feedback or opinions is appreciated. Thanks!
I joined a new creative group on Facebook that’s helping to keep me active and motivated. One of the things they do is set 24 hour goals. My goal yesterday was to draw one thing, and that one thing ended up being The Thing.
Here’s the “raw footage” of #24hourziolko from a couple weeks ago. I will try to eventually clean-up and finish the story in the next couple weeks. The lettering was left done intentionally so I can practice with Manga Studio. It’s not my best work but there’s little things I like about it. Hopefully next time I do a full 24 pages but I definitely need a group about me to keep me going. 24 Hour Comics are insane enough without trying to do them on your own.
24 Hour Ziolko Day - December 22nd-23rd
Apologies for the lack of any notable update in the last couple months. To make up for it I will be doing a 24 Hour Comic this Saturday starting at noon and ending Sunday at noon. I’ll have a livestream set up through Google+ so you can drop in and see how I’m doing (hopefully not sleeping). I’ll of course post the results here the following week as well as updates on how to watch the livestream. This will hopefully result in more creative output from me, especially since I just received a copy of Manga Studio that I hope will result on some more polished work. Hope to see some of you this Saturday!
This is the song I want to post on This Is My Jam but I can’t find anything other than a crummy youtube vid.
Apologies for the lack of any updates lately. I won’t waste your time with excuses. Here’s a quick sketch I did at work. I’m going to try to have something new on the blog in the next couple weeks.
My name tag from Doug Loves Movies in St Louis. It didn’t get picked because there was a lot of heavy competition in the crowd. I’ll really have to step it up for next time.
3 new pages for AFTER 2, along with the first pages I completed.
