Dr Sketchy Pinup

Keeping it loose here. Hope nobody minds me crossposting. This is a sketch done the other night @ Dr. Sketchy's Los Angeles branch. I have to thank Ben for getting me into Dr. Sketchy's Anti Art School. My figure drawing has definitely improved since going and it is a lot more fun than AFO!

EDIT: This is obviously NSFW but hey, it's a pinup round. SOMEBODY had to finally go full frontal.

Round Ten : Jedi Pin-up!!!

(Okay, I know this isn't really a sketch, but it's been so long since I contributed something, I figured I owed you guys a little something more...)

I've just gotten caught up on the first season of "Clone Wars", and I'm in a Star Wars frame of mind, I guess. (The weapon of choice is my Cintiq; the ammo is Photoshop!)

You know you've been working digitally too long when you make a mistake painting and realize with horror that there is no Cmd + Z option.

Here's something I sketched up at work yesterday when I had a few minutes breathing time. You can even see the front of the memo bleeding through. I left some in with careful editing of pertinent information.

Surprise Round 1: Deadpool vs Suprise Round 2: Cable

This thing has been in a half-completed state in my sketchbook for a long time now. In the spirit of the blog, I just said screw it and scribbled a few more lines so here it is, Surprise Round 1 vs Surprise Round 2:

Mildly sinful…

Slow day at work so I did a bunch of sketching, here are two of the better ones. Tweeked the colors a little bit in photoshop.

Pin Up

Taking a break from the furry animals...and no I don't want to hear your puns.

Dangerous Women...

Here's a quick one, all of my characters want to stab people now, I blame my webcomic...

Back to the Scribbles

Hello friends, Sketchy Scribbles is back with a new topic and a new banner!

Our new topic is Pin-Ups! I know we have all been busy the past couple of months with personal projects and such, which is why I decided to pick a fun topic I think everyone will enjoy and hopefully want to contribute to. The topic is pretty broad and open to whatever you come up with, so run wild and have fun. I hope everyone has an opportunity to sketch something, if not, that’s Ok… We’ll just make fun of you for the rest of your life. Older posts are still open for posting as well if you like.

Happy sketching my fellow Scribblers!

Bits of Cable

This was what I thought was a good idea but it went terribly, terribly wrong. I can't look at it anymore. Blargh. Very WIP, but this is supposed to be a sketch blog right?

I was listening to the new Giant Squid album while I drew this and Greed. I have to say, the tone of the music along with subject matter of the topic has taken these to a darker place than I expected. But then again, these are sins…

Amon starts his work week with a bit of anger....

Amon, a Duke of Hell and the demon most associated with WRATH has a trying Monday morning with his wireless internet and gets taste of his own medicine...

I did the initial sketch at work with no reference which is why he has two mechanical arms instead of just one… But whatever.

Round 9: Seven Deadly Sins as Seven Deadly Days

Wanted this to look like an old 50s pinup calender, only in watercolor. Didn't quite get it, and the font needs to be fixed badly.

Saturday: Day of Lust

Who will take the next deadly sin? . . .and which day will it fall on?

Something which may help as inspiration for this is a blog called "People, you'll see in hell"

Raised in a post apocalyptic mutant future, Cable the angsty, destiny riddled, cyborg telekinetic mutant son of Cyclops comes back in time armed to the teeth for adventures filled with even more destiny!

Like being our next round til the official one appears from the west!

A Friend Gone Too Soon

I feel fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to hang out and draw with you brother. Times I will never forget. We'll miss you.

For Jeremy...

We lost a lot this weekend. The students and faculty at SCAD lost an endlessly driven teacher, who loved his students and yet drove them to constantly achieve their best with the no-nonsense style of a taskmaster. Those who knew him lost a kind and generous soul, who never turned his back on people in need, who gave his all for his friends and loved ones. The genre lost true a Sequential Artist, who always kept the Faith, and never gave up.

Me, I lost a brother.

Rest easy, Unclefucker. We'll see each other again.

I remember an office mate...

I first met Jeremy when he started as a part-timer in Sequential Art, he was teaching electronic portfolio or something another like that and I was over in Norris teaching Drawing for Storyboarding at the time. We became office mates when we both shared a desk between Julie and Dove for a couple of quarters. Jeremy had shit everywhere, all the time, books, art, projects and I used to cuss about it constantly as I had only one box of stuff and a laptop. To his credit, Jeremy never apologized for his mess and after a while I realized that it couldn't negate what an awesome and goofy guy he was (and that I had been sharing an office with Larison, overlord to a spectacle of an office mess). Jeremy, I'd see you time to time and chat, the students we shared sung your praises to me and know I'd much rather be looking at that desk, cussing about it than writing this post. I hope this finds you at peace and among the many great artist who have already left us.

A Call for visual tributes to Jeremy Mullins

Sketchers and followers,

As many of you already know, SCAD Sequential Art Professor Jeremy "Sweetwater" Mullins left us far too early this past weekend. To pay our respects ...sketchyscribbles... will be having a tribute round to the genius and humor of Jeremy and I would like to invite all of you, authors and fans alike, to share your own visual tributes. Please email your contributions (images and text too, if you feel inclined) to me at staticstudios@snotfair.com or to any of our other authors. Please make sure that your images are web ready and let's pay tribute the best way possible, through drawing.

Being a politically uncorrect cartoon character is a mark on your resume normally, but in this economy, SHEEESH! Baba Looey takes the work that comes his way, this is the title card for his latest "cartoon" production.

Did you get that "thing" I sent you?

I always imagine Potamus like Steve Buscemi in Miami Vice. A wanna be player always in deep.


I never want to use the pen tool in photoshop again.

Round Seven - Sargeras

Sorry this is a little late - I've been busy with a webcomic I'm working on with a friend. Anyhoo - So this is my entry, the Avatar of Sargeras. He's a baddie deity from The World of Warcraft. I couldn't focus my strengths on any other kind of real world one without setting off some kind of minor riot with my wry sense of humor. If ya wanna know more, dig it: http://www.wowwiki.com/Sargeras

The Endless

"Dream" and "Delirium". Two of the "Endless". Sorry for the long delay in posting. This is an unfinished WIP as I am still learning my way around digital painting.

Cast fom the heavens into the abyss, busted up from both battles and the fall, he commands loyal legions as the prince of lies......I went with a scarred and charred version, no pretty boys in hell. Alchemy Alpha 7.0 with some Adobe Photoshop work on top.

Round Seven: The Dioskouroi

The Dioskouroi, also known as Castor and Pollux, twin sons born to Leda , who was visited by both her husband and Zeus in the same night (as a result, Pollux was born Immortal while his twin Castor was human.) They are also the brothers of Helen of Troy, and half-brothers of Hercules. When Castor was killed, Zeus allowed Pollux to share his godhood with his brother so that they could remain together for all eternity; they exist in the stars as the Gemini Constellation

The Cancerous Deity of Nicotine

He is real, I swear!
Alright… I made him up. I just quit smoking, it’s day two and it sucks… So I decided to make a deity that I can blame and curse and throw darts at.

Red and black ballpoint pens, red colored pencil, yellow highlighter, and coffee washes.

Round Seven: Deities, Sedna

Sedna is an Inuit goddess of the ocean. There are many different legends surrounding her. In one, her father tries to marry her off but she doesn't like any of the suitors. In protest, she marries a dog instead. Her father became so enraged that he tried to throw her into the ocean, but she clung to the sides of his canoe. He then chopped her fingers off one by one, and these fingers became the many animals of the Arctic. She fell to the bottom of the ocean and resides there still. The Inuit shamans have to travel to the bottom of the ocean to comfort her or she won't release any animals for their tribes to hunt. Its a real interesting dichotomy because she can be a goddess of life and death.

This was done in ink and acrylic.

Round Seven - Loki the Trickster

I adore trickster figures in all mythologies. Norse god Loki is up to no good with his son Fenrir and another wolf...either Skoll or Hati. I didn't go for full-on shading with this sketch, but rather just a hint. I hope I have time to sketch a few more... :)

Surprise Round 1: Deadpool

How could I not post one in honor of my old classmate? Congrats, Shawn!

Round Seven: Deities - Tezcatlipoca

Tezcatlipoca, Smoking Mirror in Nahuatl, rival of Quetzalcoatl in the Aztec religion and god of night and war was definitely a "Chariot of the Gods" candidate.
