Sketches for people:Flank M.D. An old character I was using for a test comic. Tweaking his look slightly. Whiped out the brush pen for the top one. It's pretty cool for speed inks.

Oh yeah, I bought The Art Earl Oliver Hurst recently. Thought I'd share some of his awesomeness. They sure don't make em like they used to.
I also just realised that it's incredibly hard to make cartoons appealing. It's almost like trying to impress someone with a one liner instead of a story. You really have to make every line/shape count with animated style illustration. Hurst was one of the few that could do this.

Last week was almost a total wreck for me, I didn't have the motivation to draw when I got home work. Then I stumbled on a old folder of inspirational art on my pc. Needless to say I felt better after, pummelling my brother at Marvel vs Capcom 2 helped a bit too :)
Any of Bengu's Promotional and character art kicks me into drawing.

Some "faux" water colour tests. Need to do some good old cheesecake pin-ups in this style perhaps. Ignore the hair on the girl, apparently the way I draw hair on paper doesn't work on computers.

Berserk. Love this manga. I could rant all day about its greatness.

They won't look a crappy as this don't worry. In the meantime I'll research a way to speed up my vector inking.
Oh yeah, here's the sketch I used for the poll. Sorry to disappoint ya if you thought she was flashing lol. I had a funny line to go with this illustration but it turned out to be a bit too vulgar. Any one got a cheesy line I could use?

Anywho, onto the post! Here's how I smoke, first I reminisce:
*wipes tear* Ahh...The beauty of destruction.
The way I do smoke is very crude but it's more fun for me this way, that's all I really care about lol. I decided to veto the sparkles. I'll save that one for another day.

Just playing with a scribble really, trying to use an old “Blur Your Eye” technique I was taught in the good old days. I used to use it in life drawing sessions to paint or draw at speed. It’s still kinda funny to me how the brain has a strange auto-fill function to help you mentally complete an image.
I should be pushing contrast more, shame on me!
