THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE IS A BIG FUCKING NUMBER!!!
Holy shit balls, that took a while. So the first image is of my old guy superhero STARBLAST drawn by the amazing Cory Walker. He was the inspiration behind starting this Sketch-A-Day for 365 thing and so it's only fitting that it be ended with a drawing from him. I colored it up for your viewing enjoyment.
The next drawing is of another star-themed character from the Major City Universe is a spandex version of his costume...I really need to work on my coloring more-- yowza! It's been a while.
I'm going to neglect the fuck out of this blog for a couple weeks. After that activity might start to slowly return.
Thanks for lookin folks!!

Somehow I'm already at 365...I'm guessing it was fucking leap year or something. Leave it to me to pick a fucking 366 day year to do this sketch every day challenge bullshit. I still have a special double-post planned for tomorrow, so I'll make sure that no matter what, this whole Sketch-A-Day fiasco counts and is official.
This is and old character that came from a story that I don't think I can even do anymore (because it's equivalent has already shown up in another book). I still really like the ideas behind it and may just do it anyway.
This is why you don't procrastinate, kids.
EDIT: nope, i fucked up the numbering

another WyA swipe. It amazes me that the guy can draw such massive figures and still have them appear properly weighted. I can't get any of my KRAGG drawings to look cool (unless they're pretty cartoony)...so i've resorted to thievery...and not drawing feet.

I've been doing some studies off WyA...well more like just wanting to see what some of my guys would look like if he drew them. I really love how he works solid anatomy work into an image that's not too far from a cartoon-like appearance.
I'm working on adding less angles and correct anatomy where it counts, for form and value and all that shit

here's Dura-Girl with her hair down (and shitty bangs that i'm gonna fix) instead of the pig tail look. Her whole design has always been cheese cakey but the last time i drew the pigtails it just came off even more ridiculous than usual.

Good Ol' Bulletproof Beetle puttin up his dukes. Today is Dec 1st...this marks the "one month left" point. I am almost done with these gawd-awful daily sketches.
I have to say that I'm a bit worried about my level of comic booking after the daily sketches come to an end. These stupid daily posts are one of the only things keeping me involved. I've all but abandoned all my comic book work lately. A mixture of apathy and defeated feelings when it comes to a "hobby" that eats so much time and money and doesn't give much back.
Hopefully in the new year I'll jump back in and at the very least get the MAM 2011 Annual out and done. Until then, there's 30 more sketches coming your way.
Today's is BpB in a fighting stance. My way of saying BRING IT ON!

more "Abandoned Concept Art"
This was a solar being called the Cadet. It was only really ever for a short story...but i was actually gonna draw it. Obviously that didn't happen. I've waved bye-bye to the pipe dream of drawing my own content.

So for Thanksgiving, I throw out a special "Abandoned Concept Art." This one (drawn by Scotty) and colored/designed by me was for something we were REALLY in love with for a while. I hope we get back to this one, ghosts, steampunk, and Victorian era London...fuckin cool shit.
I think Scotty and I like goggles

here's some roughs for an anthology story that I was gonna be a part of...I don't know if the anthology is just not happening any more or if it's under wraps still. Our main character is a "Ryu Hito" or human-dragon, named Ha Tsume...I really liked the story details I came up with for this one. The story itself was too short to really do anything cool, but the set-up was fun.
kinda fitting to post this on the premier of the Firebreather flick.

Some more shit that's never seen the light of day. A little change for "Abandoned Concept Art" week, here's some sequential roughs to show that sometimes the projects got further along than others before they got shit-canned.
This one had a couple of badass artists connected to it at two different points in time.

Not exactly an "Abandoned Concept Art" piece, but almost. It's part of a big, and very, divergent storyline within the Major City Universe (which lately has been feeling pretty abandoned).
Obviously you can see that this has something to do with Megabolt and Everyman.

More "Abandoned Concept Art." This was for a cartoony addition to the Major City Universe called "Superhero Support Group." It was a bunch of F-List superheroes and failed sidekicks getting together to talk about their struggles in tights and capes. The organizer/counselor guy was named Gary and used to be a shit telekinetic hero called "Zero-G."

not really a sketch...but whatever. This is part of a new series: Abandoned Concept Art! For the next few days, I'll post design roughs, concept sketches and/or stuff like that from story ideas that have fallen by the wayside or that have been shit-canned with extreme prejudice.
When Scotty and I were coming up with this idea, we were trying to have a VERY simplified concept line "werewolves in space" and then open that up with a premise that wasn't that hokey. Even though I wasn't the artist (obviously, drawing the stuff out helps me wrap my mind around it sometimes). I was pretty happy with the world we created-- a germaphobic hermetically sealed society infiltrated by the worst infection known to man...Lycanthropy.

Army Beetle action figure...y'know, if BpB was actually in a book and big enough to beCOME an action figure. "DeepSeaDive Beetle with real squirt action" up next.
Danny during his WWII days, his costume blended pretty heavily with grunt fatigues as there were no costume repair shops on the front.
