Stuff n' Junk pt.1

Super busy, working on a few things, most of which I'll probably fail at so I'm not gonna mention much about it.

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.

More Water

I was doing all these water colours to build up to a series of classic pin-ups, then thought....why. It's not exactly something objective. I have so many other artistic weaknesses that need greater attention. Perspective, anatomy, sequential art, consistency, etc. Maybe I should destroy myself by doing a short comic to tackle all these at once. Man, I sound totally lost :s Anyway....

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.
