Casual Friday #29

If your somewhere in the world that doesn't get the news that happens in my region, the New England area of the States got blasted with an extremely early Winter storm. Due to the fact that most of the leaves were still in many overgrown trees long over due for trimming and upkeep, in which you'd think the power company would have learned from the last storm that came through, many many branches and trees came down from the weight on the limbs and took many many power lines and utility wires along with them. Most of our state has been without power for a week and some areas are still without.

 Although I got my power back, and eventually had my internet/cable line replaced the other day, it was a long week in which I wasn't able to get much work done. The daylight hours were spent outside clearing trees and brush from around the house and then try to get some drawing done by flashlight at night. ...and not very successfully. But with a clip board in hand, myself wrapped in a big puffy blanket, and sitting on the couch in front of the windows, I did this quick Casual Friday piece of an Orc. It was drawn on Friday but I haven't been able to post it until now.  

 I remebered drawing some Orcs back in the early 90's and not really liking them and thought I'd like to relax for 20 minutes and see what I could do now. I've posted an old photo copy of one of those old Orcs. I believe it was in color and probably will ink and color up this new Orc when I get the chance. IF I get the chance that is. I've been adding more and more work lately and with other domestic projects on the near horizon, I may be finding less and less time to do extra stuff. Unfortunately that may include commissions. Sorry to those hoping to get something anytime soon, but we'll see.

 

So here they are. The old Orc from 91', and the new Orc from the other day. This one isn't a soldier, he's more of the carrier / pack mule / laborer type of Orc.

I call him Ferno.

Casual Friday #28

Working Title: "Friday, Commission, two birds and a stone"  

 Here's a Casual Friday piece I was able to get to as I'm using the pencilled phase of a commission I promised awhile back. It's finished state will be inked and I'll post that later but thought it would be a good idea to get something up on the blog. Yes, I know, it's been awhile. I've been pretty busy with many different things. Not the least of which is a Pencilling/Inking gig on a comic for Mansion Comics. (Which I'm having a blast doing)

I hope to be able to update with news a bit more as time goes by about what else I have up my sleeves, but for now, testosterone commeth in the form of a picture...

By Request, Another New Sketch Card Gallery (JLA)

 

 Im getting there, slowely but surely. I will get all the sketch card galleries up eventually. The requests do seem to get me more motivated though, so keep them coming in and I will get to tham as soon as I can. I wish it was a little easier, what with all the resizing, copying, pasting & saving, it does take awhile. But here it is, the next set up... JLA Archives from DC Comics / Rittenhouse (2009). 

 

Enjoy

Later

Quicky Sketch Card Galleries Posting, Thunderbirds

 Here's a quick post about on adding the Thunderbirds images to my Sketch Card Galleries section. Some of the scans were direct from the cards in my studio as I was pretty happy with the way the painted cards came out and wanted a good record. Unfortunately, this was still before I started scanning all my cards to keep as a record so these Thunderbird sketches are incomplete but shows a pretty good representation on each design.

I still have many more Sets to post in the Galleries section and I'm hoping to trickle them in from time to time.
