Back at it.

Well, this year I hope to finally get back to the drawing board. I’m hoping to do so after this year’s NY Comic Con, next week.

In the meantime, here’s a Sentinel I bumped into at last years con.

Sentinel

The opposite of laser like focus

How does one deal with way too many ideas but not enough time to work on them?

I’ve got about three or four projects in my head and spread across multiple folders on my computer that I am developing simultaneously.  All excite me, and get my creative juices flowing but yet I can’t seem to focus on any one project long enough to see it to its end.  I found myself bouncing from one to the other like a baby in a room full of new toys.

Random art

This was a piece I pencilled and inked for a competition being held by Platinum Comics. I hired someone to color and letter it as I wasn’t happy with the way my attempts had panned out.

Webcomics

I am currently working on a weekly webcomic which I hope to upload soon.

If you sign up for e-mail updates I can drop you a line and let you know when they go up.

Portfolio preparation part II

So it doesn’t look like I’ll have anything to show at the con. I’m annoyed but what can you do? I don’t have a time machine so I cant go back and work harder or whatever. What I can do is keep on chugging along on these pages. I’m having fun with them and hope to have them done by the end of the month. I need to, as I’ve got a bunch of other things I want to jump on. That’s part of the problem I guess, I want to be able to do everything at once and that’s just impossible.

Anyways, I’ll still be attending the con, so if you see me, as always, please stop me and say hi.

Okay, let me keep chugging along on this.

Portfolio Preparation

It’s almost four in the morning and I’m pretty beat. However with NYCC in two days, I can’t go to bed as I’m working on samples to show the various publishers that are going to be there. Things are crazy for me as you can imagine. I hope to upload my pages sometime next week for you to look at.

If you’re going to be at the con and see me, please feel free to come over and say hello.

No I didn’t die.

Wow! I’ve kinda let this blog fall by the wayside, huh? I apologize for that. I started class in July and the weeks have gone flying by. Here I am now a few days before the final session as the summer draws to a close.
The good news is that I’ve gotten my moneys worth with this class so I hope to upload some of my work within the next couple of days.
Thanks for your patience and I hope you come back soon.

Photoshop/ Illustrator

I’ve been taking nightschool classes off and on for years and I just wrapped up another semester. That was one of the reasons why my nondigital art production really dropped off. In the class we mostly did exercises of the unexciting variety but we got to do whatever we wanted for our final project.

I chose to do a bookcover for an old sci-fi short story called “The Machine Stops” by E.M. Forster. I actually haven’t finished reading the story yet and am about half way through. I think I’ve got the gist of it though.

So here’s my final project. I am refraining from going into how I made it and what I was trying to convey as to not influence your perception of it. Basically I want to see if I was successful in my execution. As always comments, questions and criticisms are welcome.

Modeling session

My Alma Mater offers free life model sessions to their alumni. Unfortunately I don’t get to take advantage of it as much as I’d like to. Yesterday I was able to go and had a blast. What dies it say about me that this is my idea of fun?

Anyways here are two of the drawings I did last night, enjoy. Sorry about the quality but I haven’t had a chance to scan them so I’ve just taken quickie photos with my phone.

As always comments or criticisms are appreciated.

Earlier this summer I was going to do a four page story for the guys at HB Comics. They had asked a few artists to do these stories, and in each short story a different character in their stable was going to be introduced. This was going to be a webseries leading up to the release of a new team book that had all of the characters in it.

I got this guy, his name is Surge. For a variety of reasons the project fell through on my end. However I did like the way this first page came out. Its still a work in progress but it shows you what I was going for.

I hope to get back to it and ink it someday just to see how it will look with the blacks spotted and all that fun stuff.
