167 - little robot guy

Finally installed the O so cool Autodesk SketchBook Pro 2011 to my pc. I so love this program. Nothing else feels as close to pencil on paper as this program does. Just a little robot guy for fun.

166 - A Gully of a time!

Sneaking in under the wire again on a Sunday evening with my sketch for the PencilJack weekly sketch group. Gully from Joe Mad's Battle Chasers. This is not the little girl you want to mess with. With her daddy's power gauntlents she is more then a match for almost anyone.

164 - Bucktooth Noodlearm Boy...I don't know why...

Bucktooth Noodlearm Boy my first creation on my nice new touchscreen laptop. These little suckers aren't bad. This one is a little old but I like it. Downloaded Sketchbook Pro to see if I could get any kind of positive result with the active digitizer stylus and I have to say the combination is nice, no where near what I had with my Wacom on my PC but workable. Using the pencil tool you can get nice sketchy lines that build up even with a stylus and touchscreen that have about 6 layers of sensitivity at most. So here we have the first sketch with my new set up. More to come...

163 - getting deviant

Finally started using my deviantART profile. Figured it would be a great place to keep all my finished colored art in one place. If you want to go take a look the link is below.

162 - 5 colored pages finally done

Finally got them all done. 5 pages of colored art off to the guy that requested them in the first place. There is a rumor that these might even see print, keep your fingers crossed for me! 

Now that this one is done I can focus on finishing up some other work. Always more to do, but that's a good thing.

Line work by Jose Manuel Marin Moreno.

160 - I just keep on winning!

It has been a crazy couple of days. But in a good way. Last night after picking up AvX #1 which turned out to be really good Colin and I set down and recorded the 5th episode of our little podcast. The Next Element Podcast is chugging right along. The night before, on Monday we the proud members of Jack's Useless Knowledge took 2nd place in Geeks Who Drink over at the lovely Brewforia in Meridian, ID. A fine evening.

With just that it has been a full couple of days. Now add to that the Action Labs "I want Double Jumpers" contest over on the Twitter pages. I sadly didn't win that. However I did receive a rocking runner up prize compliments of Shawn Pryor and the fine fine folks over at Action Labs.

But the big one. The thing that really got all this started and put me in a dancing little glee. In Super Dinosaur # 7 my very first letter to a comic was published. I tossed in a couple of names for a standard old Name the Letters Page Contest. Well being the lucky guy I am I thought they would go with anyone else's idea but mine so I read issue # 8 the next month and issue #9 this weekend not expecting much. Surprise to me as I started reading the letters page and had to take a double take when I saw that the letter's page was title Mailasaurus Text. The name I had sent in for the contest. WHAT?

Read the intro by the awesome Sina Grace and the following congrats from Robert Kirkman and realized I had not only won the contest but I had some awesome stuff coming my way. A few emails later I now know that I have a t-shirt, I'm sure it's the Super Dino one, a page of Jason Howard's oh so sweet original art from Super Dinosaur, and as Sina put it random other things that Robert wanted to send. I am so looking forward to seeing a package arrive in the mail. You there will be a nice pic on here of all the goodies, especially my very first page of original comic art. Such a good couple of days.

Long days and pleasant nights all...
