OK, so I haven’t logged back in for awhile. School is kicking my ass all over the place. Ironically, it’s the funnest semester I’ve had at the Academy. I get to be really creative with my projects, not just learning techniques for learning’s sake.

I have a tone of sketches to put up here, but have been too busy to scan them in. But, it’s spring break now, so I’ll be up here more. Here’s the first:

Tony & Cleo

This was me just playing around and getting used to drawing some characters for a new project I’m pencilling now. Yay me!

I have been working secretly in my hidden laboratory on a project for an online friend, Jeremiah Allen. He has been patiently waiting for me to reveal some info on what I’ve been cooking up so instead of just telling him, I thought I’d tell the world. Or at least the tiny, tiny part of the world that actually has time to read my little blog here in cyberspace.

So, the project is an online, downloadable comic called Squared Circle. The general premise is that it’s a WWE-style wrestling show in comic book form. We got crazy steroidal dudes (and one healthy girl) in crazy getups battling each other in the ring. We got the not-so-witty banter between the overexcited commentators. We got the over-the-top scripted behind-the-scenes filler. We got it all.

I am putting up a couple of the characters that will be appearing in the comic.

Johnny Hemo

Johnny Hemo is a crowd-favorite. He has cancer and is always over-playing his illness and other injuries and ailments he might or might not have. I have him with the patch monitors on his body and a hospital wristband for good effect. He’s also trying to look emaciated with the dark eyeshadow and sunken eyes.

Murray Boothwater

Murray Boothwater, AKA The Hypnotist, is kind of strange. He was described as having a starry cape, a handlebar moustache, and wearing a top hat. I didn’t know what to make of it. But, I think I captured some of the kooky nature of this one.

This is a sketchblog so these are just that. I may change them before the final product is done but mainly they will change very little.

Just had to put these extra sketches of the same characters on here. I like them better because I had gotten some more control over their characteristics when going back in to change the designs. I was also experimenting with a Micron brush pen with these.

Hello all. Welcome to my sketchblog. I’ve played around with these in the past, but never really committed to it. Now, it’s a new year and I want to get my crap together. Which is why you are seeing into this little corner of the vast interwebs now.

I am currently on break from school and, during this hiatus, I have taken on a lot of projects (as I tend to do). One of them is helping out a friend piecing together and visualizing his dream project. He aspires to being a comic book writer and the pictures below are just a couple of the characters he manipulates in his little world. I won’t say much about them other than I am using this and other opportunities to expand my skillset. Specifically I’m learning to use slightly different mediums while experimenting with these character designs as well as learning some digital coloring.

If, my dear reader, you have any beginner’s advice, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
