Damn, this turned out better than the original. For everyone looking for an easy way to get a great looking line with a tablet: FOR THE SAKE OF ALL ART, TURN THE AIRBRUSH ON. I took the original Hodge picture, reduced it's opacity so that I could see where my new lines were going, and drew on a layer over the image, which is why it looks so similar. And yet not?

Getting closer to what I want out of Hodge. I think I need to take that neck down and give that jacket a little more weight. If you haven't noticed yet, I'm sort of basing this guy off Mark Oliver Everett.

Meet Hodge

I don't know why I named him Hodge. The name seemed to be rolling around in my head. I'm sure I heard it recently. A character from a sci fi movie or somethingorother. I need him to be a little more gritty for what I have planned for him.

I thought I could trick my body into getting more sleep by waking up later. Instead, it responds by making me stay up later.

If Someone Asks If You're A God, Say YES

Style I'm thinking about using for a comic. Deals with a man on no sleep. Semi-autobiographical.

More Hellboy and My Friday Review

Knocked this out in 30 seconds and I like it better than the one from yesterday. Ah, doodles.

Add a splish of color:

And this aptly captures how I was feeling on Friday. Not too far off from today either. Was it me or was the sun extra bright today?

Doodle from a 15 minute art class break that I spent way too long inking in photoshop.

Big One Here, Folks.

Assignment from my MCAD class in comics: use 8 panels to tell the story of building a robot. The class got to see the pencil sketch. Here, I've inked and colored. I'm getting used to using layers in photoshop.

We could very well be looking at a young Cumin Pepperpot here. Gadzooks, could Sir Reginald of Crumpet merely be a sentient, more advanced model of this young lad's discovery? The mind wonders...

Columbus Day

Originally my Columbus Day (Observed) post but at the time, I thought it was too boring. Perhaps this will lead to newspaper syndication.

Columbus Day - I get the day off from work to drink coffee and eat donuts because some guy chopped off the hands of Native Americans. Isn't life funny?

I Made a New Friend

Yet it feels like he's known me my entire life.

I like how a doodle can go in its own direction sometimes.

I Tend to Hate a lot of Things

This is one of those things:

Channel surfing leads to accidents and I will catch a snippet of something from the old gossip mill. There are people that claim to have sources that supply them with thoroughly useless information. I believe there was an interview with a woman that heads a gossip magazine, where she was asked about a celebrity relationship and how compatible she thought they were. The two things she listed was the fact that they were both out going and both liked Mexican food.

My god, what are the odds?

Inter-species Dating

I can only imagine the number of people that have already done this joke. But hey, I saw Jason Lee on Leno talking about the movie and I had to draw it.

Now will this movie carry over Alvin's obsession with tall, leggy women that were about his father's age? The mind twitters.

All I Wanted Was A Lousy T-Square

If anyone at ArtMaterials asks if they can help you, hit them with whatever is in your hand and run. If the police catch you, the litigation and eventual time served will be less than the time it takes them to find what you're looking for.

Price check: 18" T-square. Retails for about $10 in other stores. After spending 10 minutes searching through a database and not finding the one I had asked about, he said it was probably $20.

Memory What Now?
