Throwback Thursday AKA Moldie Oldies AKA Inktober 2016

So I did Inktober in 2016, but I never posted them here. Well here are all 31 entries!
 

 
From October 1st-15th I drew some random monster heads, and for October 17th-31st I decided to flesh out full body designs for each of those monster heads. Below each head is attached to its corresponding fleshed out design. Click each one for a larger view!
 

 

 

 
And originally October 16th was the day where I drew a simple pic to explain what I just explained above. Now it’s kind of a redundant dangler, but I’m including it for the sake of pumpkin-headed completionism:
 

 

Inktober 01 2018

 
Well… Mer May didn’t go so well, but let’s see if I can crank out a couple for Inktober eh? No promises though!

#Inktober 01 2018

I was just trying to figure out costume details at first but then I ended up liking the drawing… however, I ran out of space for the feet, so I had to lightbox it and redraw her…
 

BATTLE TRIBES WRESTLING!!!

Coming soon from Spy Monkey Creations, a new Battletribes subline: Battle Tribes Wrestling (BTW)!!! I did a bit of design assist on the heads, and I came up with the design for the championship belt as well! It’s always a blast working with my good friends at Spy Monkey, and these wonderful weirdos turned out GREAT. Photos snagged from the official Battletribes Instagram account, hit them up for all the details on this 9/28 release!
 

 
Also, as has become tradition, I made an illustration to promote the new molds, brother brother!
 

Dug up some old random sculpts…

 
I’m just a dabbler when it comes to sculpting, but it’s a lot of fun.

The reddish one is a random space golem guy I made out of Sculpey… he has a Glyos piece in his neck but I still need to build a body for him. This sculpt is from 2010ish.

The alien froggy dude is another older Sculpey piece (from 2007ish). The body is a Stikfas figure but I made the limbs too large though–the joints can’t really support the weight!

Last one is a Moai-esque head sculpt from a few weeks ago. I was hanging out with my delinquent toy pals and we got blind boxes that had the toys submerged in a Play-Doh-like clay. I sculpted this while we were nerding out in the food court. I’ve left it out to dry since then and it’s pretty solid now!

Uniform variations sounds like an oxymoron…

This particular Star Trek TOS warm-up got a little out of hand… here is Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, modeling Starfleet uniform variations (covering both canon and my own head-canon)…

– Row 1-1: Standard TOS woman’s uniform.
– Row 1-5: Dr. Dehner wore a uniform along these lines in “Where No Man Has Gone Before”.
– Row 2-2: Standard Kelvin timeline woman’s uniform.
– Row 2-5: Standard TOS men’s uniform.
– Row 2-6: Something resembling Dr. McCoy’s short-sleeved variant from TOS.

Using those 5 uniforms as tentpoles, I filled in several more variations to complete the line-up. I imagine there are many other variations accommodating alien anatomy and customs (see previous), but these would cover most basic humanoids.
 

BEEP… BEEP…

I feel like 23rd century Federation technology really could have done a little more for Fleet Captain Pike in “The Menagerie”, like maybe a fully mechanized exo-suit with built-in phaser, tricorder and communicator?
 

From planet M-113…

I’m in a Star Trek TOS mood, so here’s a glamorous Salt Vampire who joined Starfleet and became a captain! A strategic genius specializing in stealth operations, highly decorated, but has a bad habit of licking the salt off of everyone’s margaritas at parties.
 

Black Canary

What’s more appropriate for a warm-up sketch than Black Canary in her 80′s aerobics-esque costume? I unironically and unapologetically love this costume btw.
 

ink on skin

So I thought the Star Trek tattoo from a few months ago was the first time my art had been turned into a tattoo, but I forgot that a few years ago Kara, commissioned a Deadpool from me for her husband Jake, and he liked it so much he had it inked:

 

So that’s two tattoos from my art so far, but the next one is definitely the first time I was commissioned specifically to design a tattoo! My good friend Scott wanted to pay tribute to his own personal Battle Cat, the late great Apollo, and I was more than happy to help…

 

It’s humbling to see folks want to put my doodles into permanent display on their bodies, and amazing to see how the tattoo artists translate my work! I’m talking to a few more friends about this kinda stuff, so who knows, maybe this will become a regular thing for me?

a few marker sketches from the past year plus…

an Oliver Queen/Ken Masters mash-up..

 
Doctor Leonard “Bones” McCoy…

 
and a practice Dr. McCoy (TOS era version) that actually turned out okay, along with a bonus Data…
