Monday and Tuesday, Sort of Friday Too

Good evening anyone out there that is still coming around to this blog.

Sorry for the continual lapses in my updates. I started to do a sketch on Friday of Soka and Suki from Avatar: The Last Airbender. But I didn't get much farther than some quick gestures, so I fleshed out the forms a little more on Monday.
Suki's right arm is crazy long, and I didn't feel like spending a lot more time trying to fix the layout. But I like the concept of the sketch and will probably re-visit it again in the near future.

Today's sketch is inspired by the upcoming Pixar flick, Brave. The teaser trailer looks pretty awesome. I'm a big fan of Scottish lore and love those settings, so this movie looks to be right up my alley. Plus the colors are amazing.

Anywho, I might finish this one up some more tomorrow. Or I might work on something else all together. We'll see what happens.

Have a good night everyone.

Tripple Shot

Well, guess what. I finally got around to posting to my blog.

I have three sketches for your viewing pleasure tonight. The first is a sketch of Conan I did on Saturday when I had a few minutes. This one was done in my sketchbook.

The second was an outline for another drawing of the Cimmerian, rescuing a princess. But when I looked at it again this afternoon I realized that it looked almost identical to the Marv and Goldie sketch I did the other day.

So I scrapped that idea and moved on to today's sketch of the Barbarian in the process of rescuing the princess.

Hope ya'll dig the sword & sorcery sketches. And I'll see you all back here again next time.

Well howdy there folks.

You might notice that this evening's posting is rather light on the visual material. Some might even say it's downright lacking in any artistic content at all.
And both of you are right.

I didn't get a sketch done during my lunch break today because I tried to work on my iaijutsu in a secluded corner of the office building. This is because I spent the evening feeling under the weather in our water closet at the apartment and didn't make it to class.

Then the day proceeded to get away from me while I was nose deep in Excel.
But I had the plan to do a pencil on paper sketch this evening at home.

But an animal emergency popped up causing me to make not one, but two runs to stores for products to help prevent any further blood from getting on the house and furnishings, as well as components to clean up said blood.


Well, I'll try to get a sketch done this weekend if I can. But it's gotten rather booked up so I'm not sure if I can really make that a promise.
I will try my best though.

See you all on the flip-flop.

And Now for Something, Completely Different

Good evening everyone.

Hope you all are having a great day. I had a pretty good one myself. Busy, but good none the less. And when I sat down to do my sketch today I felt like painting an environment instead of sketching yet another person.

I'm really sorry that I missed the sketch yesterday. It was another of those days that seemed to slip past you before you even realized what happened.

However, in doing so it's becoming very clear that I need a new stylus for my Bamboo tablet. One of these days I'll get a new one.

Anyway I hope you all like the sketch this week. I'm going to go and get some sleep in a few minutes. So, have a great evening and I'll be back here soon.
Maybe even tomorrow.

Two Sketches for this Monday Night

Hey there everyone.

Well I spent the weekend with a cold, and a sick daughter, but the family and I did manage to have some fun when we could.

But it is now way past time for bed, so I'm going to make this quick.

Here is the sketch from last Friday. It is of the character Briareos Hecatonchires from Masamune Shirow's manga Appleseed.

And today's sketch is another inspired by Frank Miller's Sin City. It is of Marv and his goddess, Goldie. Or at least, the memory of her.

Hope you all dig the sketches and I'll see you back here tomorrow.

Two for...Wednesday

Well, good evening everyone. Hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July.

We've been having some fantastic weather here in the Pacific Northwest. I ended up not being able to post my blog yesterday due to the fact that, well, I lost track of time.

So today you get two super fast sketches.

Yesterday's sketch is of Natsuki and Kenji from the movie Summer Wars. I watched it last week and it was awesome. It totally surprised me. I wasn't sure if I was going to be very into it at the beginning. But by the time the movie was coming to a completion I was cheering for the entire family the movie focuses on.

And today's sketch was going to be of Sin City's resident bombshell exotic dancer, Nancy. But with more of a Brom styled twist. Though I didn't get much further than picking out the background/base color and started outlining the figure. Maybe I'll finish it tomorrow Or maybe I'll do a new sketch to keep my pencil moving.

Anywho, have a good evening. I'll see you back here tomorrow.
