I have been working on some character turnarounds for my Crashstronauts comic (previously known as the Hashstronauts) I published with Wahab, a while back, hoping to revitalize my interest in getting it off the ground (so to speak). A cartoon series would be great.

Neckbeard - Captain of the Rice Pirates.

The Chimpmanzees - The manufactured pop-band.

Captain Waximus - Captain of the Crashstronauts

Brood Vein, the Batbarian

I saw a Character Design contest on Geek-Orthodox and the grand-prize piqued my interest. I had seen, previously a posting about some oldschool D&D action figures recently won on epay, and remembered fondly, owning the figures as a kid. Apparently the grand prize is some of these figures. So I dug up a character design I started sketching a while back, that seemed to be appropriate, and polished it up a bit. hopefully it wins me a stroll down memory lane.

I am likeing watercolors, lately

Lately, I have been dabbling into watercolors to accent some of my drawings. I did a little bit in my molskine sketchbook, and a few cards. One for my girlfriend for her birthday, and she "commissioned" me to do this one just this week.

Superjail styled Punk

I am trying to bend my style into established styles. Superjail is starting up soon, and although I don't think there are any positions open, I would like to work on that show. Anyway, i think this works... only thing missing is some rad tattoos.

Sketch Illustrations

My friend Jan-Michael asked me to supply him with some Illustrations for a report he was giving for one of his MBA classes. Being that he asked me so nicely, I did comply. These didn't take much time at all, anyway (as you could probably tell).

Greek-ish Character Turnaround

I did this character turnaround for a tutorial on one of my other blogs. The idea was to create a simple character based on some quick shapes I sketched loosely on a template using a wacom tablet. I finished inking it and added colors in photoshop.

Steroid Fishman Turnaround

So I took my fishman design, and simplified it a bit. I was thinking in the vein of "Adventure Time". Then I created a turnaround of the character.

Steroid Fish Man!

Just a weird character I sketched after my strange He-man. I cleaned it up and colored for fun. I may try to redesign him in a different style.

Character Turnaround for Ghost Robot

While an intern on Venture Bothers, I was privileged to take the character design test. From a list of names for characters, I chose to design Ghost Robot. The episode with the REAL Ghost Robot just aired this season, so I think I can finally post this.

I colored it just to spruce it up a bit.

Again, when I did the test, I hadnt worked an hour on the show. after my time on this last season inking characters and creating tonals for backgrounds, I think I would approach it a bit differently.

Adventure Twins!!!

A while back I did a character design test for a certain Cartoon Network show. These two designs were for the same character. Since I last posted these designs, I fixed some of the problems with proportions and added color, which does the trick!

Drink And Drawing.. Dec 2009

Here are my sketches from Drink N Draw in the middle of last month. I just decided to keep it simple this first time and stay with a familiar subject... people watching. These sketches are of other Drink n Drawers. I hope to attend this event monthly and post my drawings a little sooner... however, this time the Holidays kept me quite busy and was the cause of the Delay.
