You can't see it, but he's smiling.

Probably the most undignified death so far in Halo 3 - the flame thrower. If you have a problem with the way the weapon looks, that's because I was always on the receiving end.

The Fallen One



All I have to say is this is a lot different from what I had planned. Such is life.

ich habbe linda gern

I have no idea if I spelled that right.



I'm going to miss you, Linda. Good luck blending in with das Germans.

Gang contd...

Dumped the gritty sketch for these two, also a part of the little henchman's gaggle of hooligans.




Yes, she really did have Selma hair.

Makeshift Miracle Tutorial

Still not crazy about that fleshtone, but here's a learning piece aided by a tutorial found via The Makeshift Miracle by Jim Zubkavich. I flubbed some of the steps but I'll crank out a few more of these. I like keeping the sketch lines in with the color.



On one of my walks home, I encountered a group of nomads. The leader was a short guy like the one above who kept his head down as he walked. I'll attempt the others soon.

What goes around...

In reality, Jason would never let me have the last word.



Hey, I've got a lawyer in the family that's finally practicing in Minnesota! I think things are going to be all right from now on.

Some of these are just insanely fun to do.

Spider-man was always my favorite.



As usual with the digi-inks comes the original sketch.

It was bound to happen

My attempt to stop drawing upper torsos, looking to the left, revealing one arm.

Junior Spaceman

Because it just seems like a day where you shouldn't take anything seriously. Who's with me?

Let it shine...let it shine

Why is it in movies (at least those dating back to the 80s) that the creepiest thing you can do is have a little kid sing a kid's song? Preferably with a nice echo. Make the kid british for amplification.

This little light of mine...
I'm going to let it shine...
Let it shine...
Let it shine...
Let it shine...



Quick doodle and playing with layers.

Yes?

I'm not liking this new way of scanning in images. Originally, I would scan in the sketch book in RGB color and fiddle with the levels to eradicate the pencil marks, shadows, and any trace of the heavy paper I use. Now I scan the image in as a Black and White file, which saves time on messing with the levels, but it seems to create a more pixelated image.



Anyway, here's a fun image.

Engage

A Star Trek pun? Really, Corbett?



I hope Patrick Stewart is never hurting for money enough that he's forced to do this.

Alternate Timeline

Anybody remember when Q created that alternate timeline in StarTrek: Next Generation where Captain Picard was made assistant manager in an office building?



Or perhaps the child that would result from splicing the Mahler and Ortmann genes together.

Time

Hey, I found time to draw! The croc was a last minute addition, which I think is obvious. I started drawing a rabbit on crystal meth and then realized what would be freakier is that time obsessed bunny from Disney's incarnation of Alice in Wonderland.



A message to all clocks - just stop it.
