Have a lot of friends on Instagram who are into Macross like I am and they started doing a thing called Macross Monday where they post Macross related sketches or what have you, so I think I’ll do the same for a while. Macross Monday, son!!! :D Little custom paint action on a VF-1J Valkyrie in battroid mode. Sketch done is ball-point pen and HB pencil. View Larger

Inktober Day 18
10/18/2013
I’ve been wanting to do a Metal Gear Rex for a while so I figured Inktober is as good a time as any. That S.O.B. is a pain to draw, so that’s probably why I put it off for so long. I like how it came out so putting some tones on it later will fun. Maybe I’ll throw some digi color on it……

Trying to get this one some more love! Metal Gear Monday, son!!!  View Larger

This is just a little tribute sketch to a manga I just found out about called Ride Back. It has a really weird premise where there are these motorcycles that are mechs called Ride Backs. I just found out about it yesterday so I haven’t really read it yet but it seems to center around a young teen who is a ballerina who joins a club at a school that races Ride Backs or some such. It’s a weird premise, but I dig weird. So it has really cool art and there was one panel I really loved in general where the lead character is getting on a Ride Back and does this sort of ballet mount (if that’s even a thing) onto the Ride Back. It was just so cool I had to do a sketch of it. I stuck with the “anime” face of the character even though I’m not very good at them, but I think it came out ok….So I’ll be gone for a bit, I have to go back to Texas with my father. I should be back in Colorado next Thursday late next week and the trip should be fun, but still it’s long time that I could be working on other things.  View Larger

I did this piece for Denver Comic Con this year. Looking forward to the show! 

My tumblr turned 1 year old sometime last week. I should have rebloged this post for that as this was my first post. Yet I digest… View Larger

Totally…not…flexing…at all…
Seriously though, ever since I stopped drinking I’ve been putting on muscle like crazy. 
Someday I’ll get a phone that takes a better selfie. A new life goal!
Sorry, I’m bored and taking a break from applying half-tones to comic pages…so man dots…so many dots!!!!!!!!!  View Larger

I’ve been wanting to play around with some simple monochrome, pop color palettes. Just threw it on one of my old works as I wanted to see how it might work with the half-tones. Maybe it’s harking back to the old epic comic issues of AKIRA where they were testing digital color on the black & white half-toned art. Some times it worked. Sometimes the pages just looked like mud. 

Still I wanted to try it none the less. I wanted to try a really bright palette with this one to kind of give it that concert flyer sort of feel. Anyhow I do think I’m going to play around with this more with future sketches and line art. Don’t worry I’ll still do my paintings and such but I want to play around a little bit. View Larger
