My momentary burst of energy over the rebirth of Scrabbulous was but a lapse. I am now returning to the cough syrup-induced haze from whence I came.
(Posting early for the holidays, tune in on Friday for a bonus post… )
[23:25] JOSH: next time you guys do a sketch off
[23:25] JOSH: i’d like to see ninja santas
So you get this:
KAGE KRINGLE, the Shinobi Santa, gives razor-sharp kunai to all the good little ninjas at winter time. He also gives razor-sharp kunai to naughty ninjas… kunai which are delivered to their hearts. So be good, for goodness sake.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, BLOG READERS!
It’s Halloween, and here’s the dude everyone has been waiting for–Count Chocula! Okay, maybe not everyone has been waiting for him, but the handful of people interested in this series of sketches have been waiting. Probably.
Naturally, my interpretation of Count Chocula is based on his vampiric Darkstalkers counterpart, Demitri. This one was a lot of fun for me. I couldn’t tell you why exactly… it’s possible that I just enjoyed it more because it came together pretty easily. In particular, I’m happy with how the purply-brown color scheme and billowing cape turned out.
The pieces in this series were designed with a group composition in mind, so I’ve whipped up some wallpapers. For your convienience, both fullscreen and widescreen versions are available below. Happy Halloween!
The book tells the story of a funny kid named Sam, who’s obsessed with Dracula, and decides to write him a letter–honestly folks, a fantastic all-ages book, especially for the Halloween season.
In honor of this momentous occasion, I was inspired to cook up a little Dear Dracula fan art:
I promised something more substantial today, and I delivered, right? I mean, come on, background, multiple characters, what more could you ask for? A better composition you say? Yeah, okay, this composition is a little weird. Bah, forget my fan art, just go buy the real thing. Seriously.
Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the rat:
A rough pen sketch, cleaned up and colored in Photoshop (2.5 hours total–pretty quick, for me).
Timing me over IM, Charles challenged me to draw Frankenstein’s Monster in 5 minutes, and ink it in another 5. The plan was to color it in another 5, but I didn’t run into him again on IM, so I just went as fast as I could. It took me about 40 minutes to color and typeset this, because apparently, I am a sloth on downers. Oh well, under an hour is still pretty fast… for me.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, CHARLIE BROWN!
My technique is getting pretty routine now which means two things:
I should probably start trying some new things, and…
I don’t have much to say about this.
Fun Fact: One of the rejected titles for this post was Should Auld Acquaintance Be Pork-ot. Seriously!
