Four Days ‘Til Halloween! Walker and Talker.

27 10 2011

Today’s a double feature!  Meet Walker and Talker.

One talks the talk, the other walks the walk.

(Perhaps the one who only talks would walk more, if he could actually see?)


Five Days Til Halloween!

26 10 2011

Alright, so today I’m giving you a break from my creepier monsters for a dose of scary, furry cute.

This little dude was inspired by my grandfather’s dog named Bandit–and yes, the real one’s eyes are that big.

I’ve been told this little guy is cute….but don’t ask me why!  You can call him “Mouth.”  Should be easy to remember.

6 Days Til Halloween

24 10 2011

Just under a week left until Halloween, and another October has flown by!  This is by far my favorite time of year, but it all passes so darn quickly.

This week, I’d like to do a daily post of monsters in celebration of the scariest–and most fun–holiday of them all.

Let’s kick it off with, “The Beast!”

Post Apocalyptic Executioner

19 10 2011

One of my concept sketches for this year’s costume.  For those of you who don’t know me that well, I go all out on Halloween costumes.  Sadly, society does not accept me wearing more than one and wearing one more than once a year.

But I digress.

This is my (second) concept sketch for this year’s endeavor, the Post Apocalyptic Executioner.  You can’t see it, but he’s holding a chainsaw.  Post Apocalyptic, remember?  *Tee hee hee*

Questions on design welcome.  Enjoy!

Lizard Lips, or I’m Back!!

Guess who?

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been on the road, which means no scanner, which means no new monster sketches.  Plus, I’m halfway through writing a book–and reading many more!–so no short stories.

But alas!  I have access to a scanner again!

In the past, many friends and visitors have asked why I use lined notebook paper for sketches.  Does it make it easier to draw on?  Do you dislike regular paper?  (What exactly is regular paper???)  Did your dog eat your sketchbooks!?

Truth be told, I just found the sketchbook bulky to carry around for a long time.  Notebooks were easier to carry around, plus I can write story notes down in them when the need arises.  Which is often.

Anyways, I’ve started using my sketchbooks again, to pretty darn good effect with some of the new texture techniques I’ve picked up since I went on my notebook spree.  Here’s one I whipped up Monday, a Wild Things inspired dude named Lizard Lips.  Enjoy!

ps.  What are you dressing up as for Halloween this year?  Or are you too cool to dress up anymore?  Keep an eye out for some concept sketches of mine own costume this year, which I’m hoping will be a real scream.  MWUAHAHAHA!!!

pps.  Did you know it’s Chocolate Week?  YOU DIDN’T!?!?!?!  Oh, you did?  From one chocolate lover to another (you do like chocolate, don’t you–DON’T YOU???) Happy Chocolate Week!!!

Robbie, I’m Hooome!

19 09 2011

Ouch!  Over a month since my last post.  Robbie is not happy with me.

Yes, well…moving on, I can say there’s been a good reason for my lack of posts, and it’s a darn good reason if I do say so myself.  Very soon, you’ll be privy to a–*ahem*–project long in the works.  Sadly I can’t say more right now, but look for a big announcement early this Fall!

And I’ll try to release some more sketches soon–on NOT-lined paper!  How’s that for ya!?

Peace out, and Happy Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day!

ARGH!  Thar’s tha sp’rit, Robort!
