sunday sketches

Here's some of the sketches that fall out of my pencils, pens, markers, or whatever utensil I have handy while taking in sermons on a Sunday morning. a few are cheaters as they actually were drawn at a Wednesday night Bible study.
this one actually was done over a series of 2 sundays and a wednesday night:

and a landscape done with markers on an odd glossy-type paper that doesn't absorb the ink right away, allowing the markers to smudge and blend with one another, which leads to some interesting possibilities for marker-coloring techniques:
an aborted attempt at combining colored pencils and marker:

just doodling around led to this wolfish sketch:
an assortment of cats:
a portrait done on the sly during a bible study:

a sketch of my nephew done this summer:several quick caricatures done in bible study:

and a fancy marker-and-ink caricature done at a coffeehouse on that glossy marker paper:
I started to do the side-men but ran out of time before I had to leave:
and an assortment of non-representational experiments in texture, form , color, etc:

well, mostly non-representational:

Heart of Darkness

a ball-point pen sketch inspired by Joseph Conrad's story, Heart of Darkness. loosely inspired. the trees are admittedly North American in shape & foliage. but conceptually it's inspired by that book.Then i decided to ruin it by adding odd colors with markers. I did this on a photocopy, so that I'd still have the original b& w. the color seems to add a whole different meaning to the image, gives it and entirely different feel. i kind of like it, though it's certainly not much like how I pictured Conrad's story (with the colors, that is).

Wen's'day Comics Volume 4 Issue 4

the second cartoon in the Margin of Error is actually a true story that happened to my mother when she was shopping with my youngest brother (there are 6 kids total, with myself the eldest). I had planned to have this page out last week, with this panel my nod to mother's day, but you'll have to accept it now, 1.5 weeks late. :-)

Wen's'day Comics Volume 4 Issue 3

hey! I'm baaack... with new comics, even!!!
While this week's edwin is not OFFICIALLY part of the upcoming multi-parter, i'm calling it part 1, just 'cuz it's thematically related.
Also, I'm going to apologize in advance to anyone who is offended by the second 1-panel gag in the Margin of Error section... it's a pun, and I'm fully aware some folks are put off by them.
whatever, though...see you guys soon with the next installment!! (just as soon as i can set ink to paper, scan it all in and color it...)

animated cartoon, scene 30

worked on my short film a bit today; this scene: Here's what I did today:

This is just a cg model I created to help me get a rough idea of the perspective I need for a shot in my short film. It was quicker than making an actual model and photographing/filming it. timing and animation are pretty much poop, but it at least get me an idea of how the car looks from the angles I need to draw out the scene.
