Aviation Art to Annoy!

My friend Jme and I are aviation buffs. He and I differ on what makes a cool plane; most of the ones I love, he hates. So, I'm doing a series of Planes Jme Hates!

Here's the first:

Jme does not like delta wings! So here's a plane with 'delta' in its actual name: F-106 Delta Dart.
What's also not to like is the plane was so radar intercept-oriented that the frame of the windscreen was directly in the center, blocking the pilot's vision for dogfights (this was another bomber interceptor).

This is the first ink shading in a while. The need for practice is obvious. Happy about the perspective and the solidity of the form. Should have also taken more time with the lettering though.


Next up is the English Electric Lightning F.5. It's a Cold War jet could be called the "British F-104". Though it had cannon, this was another missile-oriented bomber interceptor.

What would Jme hate? Well, the nose intake leads to two engines mounted one on top of the other. Also, it's got stupid, tiny wings that can't hold ordnance. He'll also hate, once he knows, that the wing is called a "Notched Delta"; tiny AND delta-based that's a two-fer!


Until next time!

Epicness!

Every now and then I'll offer a free commission. Usually something small like an ink drawing. I like doing this 1) because it's nice and 2) people come up with crazier ideas when they're not paying for it!

I offered one to a kid at my current temp gig. All he wanted was "Bigfoot!".

Well, what does a sasquatch do when he/she isn't taking blurry selfies?

Bearfight. Yeah.

Glitter Dragons are go!

A bit late but, this will be the start of more posting here. Have to reach more folks!

The "Introducing The Glitter Dragons" coloring book is here!

Twenty-two pages of coloring! That's a lot of drawing by the way.

Pick up a book at my Etsy shop

There's also far too much Glitter Dragons swag available at my Society 6 shop

I bought a t-shirt of Momo for my niece. Not too bad, actually. The printing was pretty nice and the shirt of fair quality.

More Inktober and a new friend!

Remember Meridian Delacourte? Of course, you do! Well, she now has an arch-nemesis. Part Harley Quinn and part Vixen, she's a lot smarter than she looks and is more than a little crazy.


Yeah. I have to do something with those two...

Creepy Wolf Girl

As a rule, I'm generally not into gore much. But, perhaps it's more of a guideline.


Was at this year's Art of Horror exhibit on October 3rd and got bored. Not with the art, with only a few exceptions it was wonderful. Not just grossness but a good mix of visceral and psychological creepy-ness.

But, after three hours of watching and not being able to have good conversations, I had to go. So, I went out into the corridor and sat down to do Inktober for that day.

Here she is:


She became the seed for this year's 24 Hour Comics Day comic. I'll post that later. I've only got bad phone photos and want to scan it properly. Cheers!

Inktober 2014 begins

Three at once!
This was a day late. It was done eating fried chicken bits at Arts Riot in Burlington while waiting to attend a showing of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension (oh, it was awesome!)
same place. The pen was bad and the paper had a heavy tooth. Not my best work.
This was done at the Art of Horror exhibit at the S.P.A.C.E. Gallery in Burlington. I was overheated and a little bored so, I went out into the corridor to draw. I like this one but, there is a horrible part of it. 24-Hour Comics Day is tomorrow and I can't stop thinking of a story for her! You're not supposed to have a story when you start, darnit!
