Was waiting for the new moon to roll around to post this. Good luck and prosperity to all for the year of the snake!
Shout outs to all of those who contributed to the Ultrasylvania kickstarter campaign. We have $897 left to make for this project and only 56 hours to go! It's down to the wire, so all there out in internet-land check out the link and do your part to keep awesome comics like these around!
Fulfilling my new years resolution by putting up a post at least every two weeks. Here is some stuff from my sketch book!
Below are some sketches I've been doing for a Weekly Challenge we have at the Comic Book Club. The first challenge was Saturday Morning Cartoon Characters. I chose to make some really scary Ahh!! Real Monsters redesigns.
This one I did some silohette's for to nail down her character. The challenge was to create a character for a fighting game like Street Fighter or Mortal Combat. Her name is Horchata, roller derby girl and drummer for a metal band.
This last one is for the latest challenge to design any character as a Transformer. Neil deGrasse Tyson may not be fictional, but he deserves transformer status. Still working on the colored version and his transformed self (the Hubble Telescope).
School is finally finished, and now I have plenty of time to jump back onto this collaboration I am working on with the very talented writer Matt Harding. Here are a few concepts for the characters of our comic The Styx Express. Set in the 1920's, the river has been frozen over and Charon's boat has been replaced by a locomotive that travels along the frozen river. Charon is set to retire his job as the ferryman, while Marcus is slowly learning the ropes as he will now be responsible for the souls who wish to rest. I'll defiantly have more stuff to post after this week!
