Logging in one more time to wake up my dormant site. Been really busy with all the aspects of my life right now. Some things have dropped out from under me and I’m finding myself trying to pick up the pieces and move forward from this point. But, when something falls away, I believe you start to see other things more clearly and that is what I am doing right now. Rubbing my eyes and seeing other opportunities I hope I can grab onto before they vaporize into thin air.

In light of all this, I started drawing for myself again. doing a lot of warmups and drawing more on instinct than for perfect proportion, perspective, etc. All the things you’re supposed to learn in school, but, for some reason, have ultimately crippled me. Not that all of that isn’t important, but I found myself focusing way too much on those details and my drawings ended up looking stiff and lifeless. This is me going back to what I know. What looks good and dynamic to me.

So, on this site there’s a post in the Superheroes forum. This guy drew up a bunch of Image Comics characters as baby versions of themselves. Problem was that he was only using the most recent characters except for the incomparable Savage Dragon. His post inspired me to so a set of Image babes myself. Only this time I would go back to the beginning and use the original set that got me hooked on comics for life. Here’s a few of them uncolored.

Baby Badrock
Badrock is pretty self-explanatory.

Baby Chapel
Chapel I pictured as still being the cold-blooded psycho he is in the comic book, but here in embryo. Instead of the skull face make-up I put a halloween mask on him.

Baby Diehard
Diehard has become the paranoid android complete with USB 1.1 plug to recharge. He does not like this one bit.

Baby Vogue
Vogue is reprimanded for playing with sharp objects. Bad girl!

Baby Wildstar
Wildstar! One of the second-tier characters at Image. I just got this idea and ran with it. In the books he’s always shown with this intense shouting look on his face. Oh, the 90’s….

addendum to first post.

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.
