I don't think I'd be able to sleep if this nefarious ne'er-do-well was anything more than just a drawing.
He *is* just a drawing isn't he?

I'm tired of doing posts that look like drawing exercises. So I've ventured back into playing with watercolour which invariably is extremely frustrating until I take it into photoshop and make myself feel better. Though I'm really rather fond of the bloody handed woman, despite having to digitally make it what I wanted. I need to buy some permanent white ink to do the white liney bits on the actual paper.

We finally.... FINALLY.... had a little taste of summer for a couple weeks here in Vancouver. It's raining again today but... good god for a little while there we were in shorts. SANDALS even!

So I've been working A LOT lately and the only drawings I've been doing for fun are little late night doodles in my sketchbook (of all places...). But in that time I've been trying to improve my drawings of girls which are usually... well not so great. So I scribble and scratch and scrape and slooowly but suuurely I end up drawing monsters instead.

Well 5 photoshop crashes later here's a "speedpainting," (minus swearing time and furious rebooting) of a concept for a thing I'm working on. I was going to post it earlier today but when I saw it on the non-tiny cintiq screen it needed serious fixing. And yes! I added a lens flare FTW!!! Look at me! I'm JJ Abrams! Oh also adding a rough drawing of Jukka, who's one of the main characters alongside Baz a little further down Old Bloggy McGurk over here.

OK so... basically this guy was some kind of thief but then I put glowy stuff on him. What? Don't all the best futuristic criminals cover themselves in LEDs and use blazing fusion swords in their wacky capers? Anyways trying some new stuff. Wanted to do him all in flash but I am absolute pants at colouring outside of photoshop so that's what happened.
I've been working on an action show that has really highlighted that I should get better at dynamic posing. So this was an attempt at getting that sort of Rob Valley ish pose that is called for. The original drawing has a lot more energy. The more I clean it up and make it look done the more it seems to quietly die. So I compensate with speedlines!

Figured it was about time I coloured something so here's another take on a character I was playing around with last year. His name is Baz.
I've been neck deep in youtube videos of old Saturday morning cartoons and commercials today. It's the Sunday I've been wanting for four weeks! In celebration of having FOUND A NEW APARTMENT and I don't even have to leave the West End! Super yay! BTW does anybody remember Starcom? I didn't even know they had a cartoon series when I was a kid but DAMN those ships are awesome!!

Why it is that I can be tired to the point of feeling the need to staple my eyelids open all day, yet not be able to sleep when it's ACTUALLY bedtime is beyond me. But it means I draw in bed a lot. And I've had Les Mis stuck in my head all week so there's some 1823 ish looking characters. Not historically accurate but Wikipedia was all the way over at my desk. Which is where I am now, posting this. But this wasn't where I was when I was drawing. So there. Nyah.

Still busy. So I'm cramming pencil sketches onto one page. Push crush smash. And one stray doodle of a cranky little girl that's my favorite.
Oh but see in the crammy page? That mustache guy in the middle with the jester hat? THAT'S A REAL GUY. I saw him from the bus this morning.

I would like to put that in a sick, wibbly wobbly font but I can't. So anyways. Sick weekend. Sore throat. Coughing. Apartment hunting in pouring rain with a broken umbrella. Wah.
So in the spirit of making myself feel better I've drawn a scared man in a nice suit with a big old book on some stairs scared of something. Because now is not the time to develop creatively. It's time to sink back into my favorite things and wallow for a bit.

Happy new Year! DAMN I've been busy! What with animation and Christmas and everything. Ugh. Fun but... ugh. So not much posting. Here's some sketches I meant to colour but never did, what was going to be my Christmas card that didn't get finished and something I tried in flash and photoshop that was meant to be somewhat Pascal Campion-ish but fell way short. I think the outline on his back is the nail in the coffin. Blog fodder!
