67 - male eyes part 2 or the second thumb to the eye

Keep plugging away. Of all the tips I have ever read, all the advice I have ever heard, it is to just keep putting pencil to paper and burn through the first 2000 or 3000 bad drawings that we all have within us to get to the good stuff. One more step along the way, one more page done.

65 - And the eyes have it

Still going on with the Christopher Hart book, now we start on the eyes. The page had a nice version of realistic versus the more simplified form. I did those and then figured why not throw down a sketch of the man that's all eye. For those that don't know, and SHAME on you if you don't, this gentleman is Allen the Alien. One of the coolest characters ever and one of my very favorite supporting characters in the wonderfulness that is Invincible.
Flat out if you are not reading this book you don't actually like superhero comics. Invincible is the best thing out each month for the capes persuasion and Allen has always been a crowd pleasure whenever he shows up.
Go out and get this book, right now issue 75 is on the stands and has some serious doings inside as the Viltrumite War kicks it into gear. Though the best idea is to go back and read it from the start, I figure if you start now, you will go back and read it from the word go as it is just that good.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER - never get between a Unopan and his grubs!

64 - well they ain't tails

Two more and away we go...
Just more heads from the Christopher Hart Simplified Anatomy book. I'm really enjoying the book and it's nice to actually be enjoying drawing again. Sketches, tattoo designs for friends and redesigning a beer company logo, things are good.

And to bring back on old fav...
SAT-Spoiler Alert Theater: Saw 3-D
Did the yearly outing to see Saw 3-D with my friend Valynn and I have to say it was well worth the extreme theater prices for a 3D movie. Great traps, the fun of having body parts flung at the screen off of saw blades tearing into bodies. Nothing like watching a film in 3D that was shot specifically for 3D, especially a horror film. If you ever enjoyed a Saw film I would recommend seeing this one in the theaters and paying for the 3D glasses, it is well worth it. If they are actually ending the franchise with film as they advertised it will be a fitting end. And if not I will see you guys next year Saw - Jigsaw Reborn!

63 - Nothing like a striking image...

Flipping through a back issue bin over at Captains Comics, on Vista in Boise if you wanna stop by, and was struck by this great image of a scary ass clown and a small child. I had to check it out, and when I saw that it was a Joe Kubert cover I knew I had to own it. One more great image in my collection.

And to somewhat continue a theme, we have a sketch page of heads from Christopher Hart's Simplified Anatomy for the Comic Book Artist. Good stuff, but now we must increase the speed captain!
