So if you guys don’t know already, I’ve been working on a comic series based on stuff from the r/AntiMLM subreddit since May now. It’s been an on and off project for me and have a backlog, but it’s been a wonderful project to work on, especially since its the first time any of my projects have actually been recognized and followed.
Recently I approached Kennis the Menace, a Youtuber that covers some subreddits, asking her to give some coverage to the comics I did. She agreed and went ahead to make a video on it; the results are pretty interesting! Big thank you to her. Give it a look below, along with following her on social media linked below.
During the summer, I drew a random doodle of a character whom I dubbed “egghead girl”. I was specifically stylized for what I typically draw, and was inspired to do a pencil sketch about a month later. She evolved from the headsketch into this, a bookish character that runs a half library/half art museum, cataloguing strange finds for people to see.
All that time later, I finally got around to translating this to digital format. I didn’t focus too much on the background, mainly wanting to color the character in whole and show some tone with the ambient color.
This is probably my last art piece for the year, and I’m glad to close it out on such a note. See you next year, everyone.
This is a piece I had done earlier in the year, but had forgotten to post here on the site. Whoops.
But yes, this is a digital redraw of a piece I had done in 2009 on paper. I used my Cintiq on this one to redraw it, to great effect. I loved how it turned out and think its pretty interesting I actually finished this, as the original paper drawing was a WIP I didn’t complete.
To be honest, I really like how this came out. Especially with my better drawing skills, Jennifer really came to life here. Here’s that I can do her greater justice in the near future.
In the geek/nerd/anime community, there’s a pun that goes around that “if you’re a virgin when you hit 30, you’ll become a wizard.” I fall into that category. However one night I was chatting with an ex-coworker, she mentioned that I was also a “tech wizard” in addition to that. I figured I’d embrace it it was going to happen regardless, and this happened. Now if my monitors would only stand up like that.
I had just started playing Borderlands 2 on Xbox. Me being the creative fellow that I was, I drummed this up after falling in love with a long-barreled pistol in the game. That particular instance it was called the “Longarm”, hence the name.
I actually had a trigger but it tore off very easily when cutting the hole out. Oops.
