While at the Brass City Comic Convention someone inquired if i had any Rugrats art, and sadly I did not. I set out to rectify that problem and I figured "What better character to draw than REPTAR?!" Now if you grew up in the 90's watching Rugrats episodes over and over again there's no way you can forget "Reptar On Ice" the musical. After watching that episode again I had to do a piece based on the epic love story of when a lizard takes a wife. Now, back to inking another childhood inspired piece...
I suppose the remote control detonator wasn't quite as clever as he thought? On another note, you can barely see it and I know it won't show up in the final card art (too small) but the Ultimate Killing Machine can be spotted in the bottom right corner destroying the city.
Happy Batman Day! DC Comics has declared today, July 23rd, 2014 as Batman day in celebration of 75 years of Batman. Now I'll admit I've always been a Marvel fan over DC, but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy DC stuff - especially Batman. As a 90's child I grew up watching the Batman animated series that ran 1992-1995, and a little bit of Batman Beyond (1999-2001).
It's really interesting to see the evolution and depictions of the character in comics, television, and the big screen. So here's a sketch of my favorite Batman parody!
I had the lucky opportunity to meet the Richard Horvitz, the voice actor for Zim (among many others like Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Daggett from the Angry Beavers, and Alpha 5 from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!) at ConnectiCon in Hartford this past weekend. I couldn't pass up getting an autographed Zim Photo.
Of course I needed to go and create a Zim sketch:
In other news: I will be at The Brass City Comic Con this Sunday. The show runs 10:00-3:00. I'll have a table with prints, comics, and I'll be doing sketches so stop by!
I know I'm a little late to the party on this one, but I just started playing Chrono Trigger for the first time! This game has all the elements of the 32-bit RPGs that I grew up with - I just never had a chance to play the game on the SNES, and due to the rarity of the actual SNES cartridge I found a Playstation downloadable version. I really like Glenn, I think he's my favorite character in the game - or maybe between this and the last Kermit piece I just subconsciously really like frogs. Who knows?
About the sketch above: I recently upgraded to a printer that will scan and print 11x17 (Hurray!) so I've now started working my sketches in Photoshop, printing them out on a piece of 11x17 bristol board in very light blue ink. After it's all printed I grab my trusty brush pen and ink it. I took a few small liberties to make Glenn look a little more frog-like.
Here's a look at my newest piece, Kermit the Spider-Frog! I created this one for my art show at Barley Vine (the work will be up there for a little while so check it out!). I've just added him to my store, anddddd I'm having a sale on prints, $10.00 each, take a look!
So a little history on this one:
A couple of years ago I did a sketch of Kermit the Frog as Spider-Man, it was a quick drawing but I always liked the idea. So while browsing some of my old work I stumbled across it and decided it needed a facelift. So I made this piece like I've been making my other recent works, and colored this digitally instead of traditionally. Here's the old one:
