more scans

The old timey boxer is a copy from a Simpsons' deleted scene.

As for the brontosaurus, I'm sure I've seen something like this before, but can't remember where from. Trying to come up with space ideas for a D-A-C challenge. And that is an inked doodle of Lockheed. The underbitin'est member of the Xmen. Or X-Caliber. Or Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers, hehe.

some scans

because I need to update more.
The first one is based on a photo reference of Sam's. :)

God bless the folks at Free Geek.

A friend told me about this place some months back, and thought it sounded neat - so I went in today, still not really sure what to expect. BUT IT WAS GREAT. They even had a robot for sale.

FreeGeek is a charity which refurbish and resell/repurpose old computer equipment, and safely recycle everything else. If ever you need to dispose of old computer stuff, or if you need parts, keyboards, cords, etc, go see the thrift store at Freegeek!

Thanks to these ladies and gentlemen I was able to bring home a tower for very little money! It runs on Ubuntu, and needed no crazy drivers for setting up my tablet. So far it seems like a really friendly, smooth-running OS (And Ubuntu is freee.)

Best of all I can get back to working on stuff again! HOORAH!!

old stuff.

Back up your stuff, people, back up your stuff!!

Because you never know when you'll have to reformat your computer because some stupid virus. Here are a few old scraps of stuff. Just in case.

The cats are supposed to represent 'electronic music'. I drew this like two years ago but I still can't fully remember where I was going with that.

more golden geckos.

I am still playing with the right way to colour this, for it has been a while since I sat down and actually did some paintin'.

Also, I am still continuing to get killed by these guys on a regular basis.

fallout vegas.

This is how most of my games end. I am currently trying to paint this, these are the lines. Need to post more STUFF.

the guardian legend

The main character from The Guardian Legend, which was my favourite as a kid. IT IS VERY HARD.

spirited away.

Some more warm-up-pause-'n-copy drawings, this time with Spirited Away. Man, that movie. No matter how many times you see it is always just as good.

lifetime challenge.

Another design for the DAC. (linearts, drawn in Flash) Any suggestions or the like?

The sockeye salmon run in the Fraser river has been extremely sad for years, but it's looking like they have made a major recovery! There are tens of MILLIONS of these fellows. Bears everywhere are pleased.

New flash.

I am working on a new thing.

Friday, August 20, 2010


I've been trying to do warm-up drawings every morning, usually trying to pause 'n copy from something on the TV, to try different styles. Also, it's another good excuse for watching some Simpsons.

Here are some of those practice drawings.

Oh my neighbour.

My neighbour. This guy.

After a whole morning of my neighbour listening to loud Lady Gaga, he switched to loud new-age synth chanting. THE SAME TRACK. Or maybe it was a two/three hour long track, I really don't know my new age chant albums.

I have illustrated exactly how the music sounded.

Chris Sanders challenge.

Drawn for the DAC's style challenge, which was to draw like Chris Sanders. So I chose to try drawing Faye from cowboy bebop! Ein I think is more in style, but he also looks like a creep, hehe.

Monster Highlights!

A treasure troll is too a monster. Also, second up from the bottom that is a Yeti from Doctor Who. (Although I'm much happier with the way the doctor turned out than with the yeti) At the top of this bunch is a Monoped, a medieval beast which was basically a "man with one leg".

Thirty Monster days are up!

THIRTY MONSTERS! Here is a condensed image of all the monsters (I've seen friends and other folk do this I think it is a neat way of displaying such things). I'll follow up this post later today with some of the better ones I haven't yet put up. :)

All in all this was super fun, this challenge.

new monsters.

This one's a bushbaby crossed with a goat.

Heraldic Monsters

More medieval monsters based on Heraldic designs! One of the main things about these monsters is that they usually have their tongues out.

In order, they are a Wingless Lion, Wyvern, some sort of scaly Manticore/Sphinx, and a Yale.

(The scaly fellow is based on an image that was listed only as "monster". Looked like a scaly manticore with a lion's tail.) The Yale has the ability to rotate its horns in any direction.

the Tengu

The Tengu! - Japanese bird spirits/goblins : [link] There are all kinds of stories and legends surrounding the Tengu. Sometimes they're described as being mischievous drinkers who prank monks, other times they are scary, vengeful creatures. Either way, they are awesome.

HERE IT IS! Any suggestions on things I oughta change?

The Blemmyae.

This is another one of my favourite monster type creatures of all time. He is wearing swim trunks for decency. They are said to live south of Egypt, and may or may not be cannibals?

Mystery Panther.

So, of course panthers are real, right? But people report seeing these things everywhere. Especially in places where there have never been panthers, like the upper midwest of America and eastern Canada.

Most of the time, photos and videos of these mystery panthers are just a black cat walking in some tall grass. MYSTERY PANTHERS.

(So not actually a monster, then.)

Well what do you know. Just now I found this: (link) Maybe they are not so crazily rare after all.

couple things.

But for now, here are some character designs for the newest DAC challenge, as well as a Chupacabra. Because why hadn't I drawn a chupacabra until now? Sheez. There is a backlog of unscanned monsters on their way!

(The challenge was to create designs based on some shapes, which I used to design the heads of these prom animals.)

The Doghead!

I guess the doghead is less of a cryptid, but it's still a monster type thing. So it counts. The medieval church deemed them 'human' since they wore clothes, and even sent missionaries to find their secret dog-head villages.

Since it was common knowledge that dogheads were totally, totally real, they were blamed for all kinds of shenanigans.

...Getting a tiny bit backlogged with finishing/scanning all these monsters, so a jumbo catch-up post is coming up soon. (I will recolour this doodle.)

Jedi Showdown.

Another entry for the DAC group! The challenge was to design either a Jedi or Sith, then design an opposite character on the other side.

the cactus cat.

The Cactus Cat of the American Southwest! Unlike most other monsters, the cactus cat is a drunk.
