Reworking an old project and making it new...

Here's a painting I did some months back that I was never totally happy with. I decided to go back in and here's what I came up with. I'm happy with the new one, but thanks to the digital medium I still have the first version, and that's pretty cool!

First version...

Second version...

Here's a quick sketch using Cintiq and photoshop. I remember initially going digital and just trying to mimic my "Traditional" techniques. That was very limiting and frustrating. Once I got familiar with the digital tools, I began to find a new style suited to the medium. And I'm still "finding" it! Keep your eyes open or the future will be lost to the past!

IDIOT ENGINE ep 49:DEATH in Storytelling!

Join me and self-publisher Javier Hernandez as we talk about how Death is used in storytelling. Now, it may sound like a down beat subject, but take my word for it we're absolutely animated! As a matter of fact, I'd say we were Alive about Death! Take a listen... if you DARE!
*note, I couldn't remember the name of a film I referenced that starred Eliot Gould. Well, thanks to the internet I have it, it's called LITTLE MURDERS (1971).

Watching Pro Wrestling Guerrilla live is... Awessssome!

I had a great time at the latest Pro Wrestling Guerrilla live show. The crowd was awesome (I was in it, yeah!) the wrestlers were awesome so ie the show was awesome! Here's a quick drawing of my favorite moment at the show when KEVIN STEEN executed a fall away power slam on Nick Jackson of the YOUNG BUCKS!

Designing characters doesn't always mean drawing them

I've been designing characters by customizing and remodeling old action figures for a while now. It seemed to come naturally for me since I collect toys and figures anyway. I'll sit at my desk and just look at a toy, watching the light and shadows fall across the sculpt as I move it under my desk lamp. Here's a group shot of some characters in one of my current projects. I know it's not the your typical way to design characters for comics, but you might want to give it a try!
