A Wrinkle... ON TIME!

Wow... I actually posted a sketch on-time, AND it's of a female character, AND I'm happy with the results. Taken separately, these events might not mean anything. Taken together, and all from me, they may signal the End Times.

I'm really sorry.

Anyway, I've been reading A Wrinkle in Time again during brief breaks at work, and I'm remembering how great it is. I've read it before, and it's not that I "forgot" it was enjoyable or something... somehow I'm just getting more out of it this time. I don't know why.

I was thinking about the characters and the environments and so-on, and I wanted to try to draw Meg (Those of you who have read the book can tell me if I did a decent job). I wanted her to look slightly distressed, since that's where I am currently in the novel.

Yet another random sketch out of nowhere. Sometimes it's nice just to play with the smooth lines and wacky curves and see what happens. My style is so cartoony, and I fight against it so often, it's also nice to just go with it and see what I come up with.

Someday I'll sit down, give in, and dump the sci-fi action and super-heroics (at least temporarily) and just create a silly, random cartoony-thing. Like THIS. They're fun and easy to draw... ah well, I'm rambling. Take a look, leave your comments, and I'll do my best to post again before the week's out.

Dragon, Forced

... well, not exactly. I just thought the title was semi-clever given my recent taste in over-the-top music videos and I WAS too lazy to actually finish the sketch completely. Although, in my defense, I did run out of paper...

Alright, enough excuses.

This sketch is a slightly updated version of a character I created for a point & click stlye video game in high school that never happened... and then for an animation that never happened... and finally for a childrens' book, which DID happen. I might have to do something with him again in the future, he's fun to draw; I just need to draw his legs next time.

Holy cow, this may be the coolest thing EVER:

Commander X & Crew: THE GAME

I'll post my silly sketch later. I want to play this some more before work...

Gotta be honest: This sketch is NOT a new one I drew this week. I got busy, put it off, lame excuse #3, lame excuse #4... and so on. Today I tried to think of something to draw and just wasn't feelin' it, so I'm not going to force it. Thanks for bearing with me; I'll have plenty of new things up this week as I approach The Final Deadline (not to be confused with The Final Countdown).

As for this sketch... I really have NO idea what I was drawing. I just enjoyed playing with the lines and the shapes that made this bizarre psychic alien come to life. I may include him in The Professionals, or not; who knows? For today, enjoy this weird and wacky sketch and expect more in the next few days.

Earth-38, Part 5

It's been a little while since I drew one of the heroes of Earth-38, and March 2 seemed like a good time to get back to it.

The Japan-based hero I drew today is a mystery to the people of Earth-38, and even to some of its heroes. He's most often seen in Kyoto, but has been sighted as far away as Osaka. He strikes from the shadows, sometimes silently, sometimes with a ear-piercing scream; he operates only in the darkness of the night.

Most people believe he's only a myth, meant to scare the superstitious and the cowardly. He wears a garish bat-demon mask, hurls wicked shuriken at his foes, and is a master martial artist and swordsman. He is spoken of with respect (and possibly fear) by the highest-ranking members of the Yakuza. They refer to him as The Bat-Demon, or "battoman..." the Justice League of Earth-38 refer to him simply as: The Bat-Man.


Also, be sure to check out the other heroes of Earth-38:
