FEEL GOOD 'INK'

MuZik s7@r GoriLLaz s7yl3!!!1!!!

Blam!

Here I am rockin' Guitar Hero Gorillaz style! I nicked the pose from this character from guitar hero, and I have to say that I'm pleased with how it turned out. I considered having my character doing something weird and random like Aaron's character, but in the end I decided to go with more of a rock & roll feel which I felt would suit the overall topic better.

In case the shirt I'm wearing isn't very clear, those are testicles. ...I've been known to rock SO hard that people's extremidies spontaneously combust, balls included.

As for my process, I sketched everything out on Monday night and then scanned the sucker into Illustrator to "ink" it. I then took the inked version into Photoshop where I applied a lick of digital paint and voila!

I should throw the "balls of fire" shirt design on Threadless...imagine randomly meeting someone wearing that shirt one day! Ha!

Adios amigos!

Winter Bus Stop Woes


Here's my late "Winter Woes" entry. This image actually showcases a few bus stop related winter woes. They are as follows:

  • Over-crowded shelters - All those puffy jackets add up to squishville
  • Whiteout conditions - Which makes it impossible to see if your bus is coming unless it's right in front of you
  • Giant snow mounds that you have to climb over to get on the bus - which, coincidently, makes all younger people "old person lifts"
  • Bears - They steal perfectly good garbage from homeless people

I'll have my Gorillaz entry up sometime next week.

New Topic: Music Star


Well guys here it is and I hope we get a few more posts and comments/critiques this time.

So I thought maybe it would be cool for us to try to fit a certain style of drawing that we aren't used to. At least a type of drawing I haven't seen any of us do. And that is to draw yourself as a Gorillaz Character. I find it to be a very pleasing style and also a challenging one as well. Photo reference can be found

and here.

Good luck and any questions or comments are welcome!

Also F.Y.I if you've been working on something and haven't posted it by the due date..that doesn't mean don't post it at all. Remember this is for fun not for work!
