Demon Girl

A little Halloweenish something that I drew last year but forgot to post. I’ll try to post a more substantive Halloweenish something by the end of the week…

 
(Yes, it was drawn on the piece of cardboard that you tear off to open a box of tissues.)

Shameless plug! Comikaze this weekend!

Here’s a poster that I penciled for work (inks by Mike Rote, colors by Nathan Kane, and type/design by Serban Cristescu):

It’ll be available at the Bongo Comics booth, this weekend at Comikaze! Get ‘em while they’re hot! I’ll be there on Saturday, you might catch me at the booth!

And here’s a look at some of my rough sketches that lead up to the final product:


 
I post this type of work-stuff on Instagram semi-regularly, so follow me if you want to see more! Do NOT follow me if you don’t want to see Instagrams of action figures, food, and cats.

Pinstripes and Booo-llets

I was having a conversation with Josh over IM which lead to me proposing a hi-larious image, which lead to me drawing said image because it was suitable for Halloween. Here it is:

You see, they’ll never take him alive, because he’s already dead. GET IT?? I TOLD YOU I’M HI-LARIOUS! HAPPY HALLOWEEN, SUCKERS!

(I’m behind a post, but I have stuff incoming later this week… )

Wolf Down All Your Candy

Take note, waiters and waitresses: If there are colored pencils left behind at my table because children were amongst the previous occupants of said table, I will draw a werewolf on my placemat:

Basic line-work was all finished at the restaurant, a few months ago. Further color pencil rendering, computer clean-up/effects/type were done this morning. Because I care that much about you, Dear Reader.

Happy Halloween! I’m gonna watch Troll Hunter and have a Newcastle Werewolf ale tonight.

AWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Corny.

Still working on Help the Cheerleader commissions, naturally, but this week I’m taking a break to post something else…

If I happen to come across an orange and a yellow marker as a pair, my brain immediately sets itself towards the drawing of a candy corn-motiffed woman who is armed with a candy corn chained flail and vaguely Audrey Hepburn-esque style. And here she is:

I drew this several weeks ago, but since October and November is the season of the candy corn, I saved it until now.

Unseasonably Ghoulish

Sigh. Computers.

Almost there with setting up the new computer, but I’m not yet quite able to do my normal computer coloring thang. Which is why you get this seemingly random piece today:

I had some surplus of holiday spirit left after last Halloween, so I whipped up this pen sketch and slapped some marker colors on it. In theory I would have saved this for October of this year, but I am tired and defeated after dealing with my computer situation for the past week and a half. HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!

Monsters of Breakfast (5 of 5): The Bite Stuff… PLUS WALLPAPER!

The Subject: General Mills cereal monsters.

The Twist: Drawing them in the style of Capcom‘s fighting game franchise, Darkstalkers.

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!

Something for the Season…

I’m very excited–Dear Dracula, a 48-page hardcover children’s book, published by Image Comics, and created by my dear friends, Josh and Vinny, will be available for purchase this Wednesday (October 15, 2008)! If you can’t find it at your local comic book shop or book store, you might try Amazon.com.

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.

BONUS POST: ‘Tis The Season

I had absolutely no plans for a Halloween post, but Charles first insisted (which had no effect), and then challenged me. I don’t usually take the bait in such scenarios, but I also happen to be a fan of one Frankenstein’s Monster, and thus today’s l’il treat:

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!
