Fuck, you know? This old stuff... It just really needs a cursory glance. It's all
Me, my latest crap is mostly digital.
Michael Kane, alias of Andrew Johnson, scientific genius, chain-smoker, and dispatcher of an Alien Emperor (and ultimately the deflection of an extraterrestrial invasion). A cybernetic, self-designed limb to replace the destroyed one.
Made using the "Oekaki" program.
A simple hand, drawn - again - using the Oekaki program (as all others like this will be) in about 4 minutes.
I seem to have a strange fixation on skulls. Maybe watching He-Man as a child had consequences?
Alas, poor Yorick - I knew him, Horatio.
He seems to have a rather cool pair of sunglasses - sketched in about 8 minutes. This is about as good as they get, as any attempts on my part to add distinction and an air of being "finished" usually just tarnish the art.
A much older piece working on hands and etcetera, a month or two old.
There's a bit, Enjoy it! Or, whatever. Tear into it. I hafta leave real quick now.
Need to draw bigger...

Fuck, I can only seem to really comprehend this one part of the face, or just bits and pieces. I can never, combine them, into a competent whole. Or, you know, a reasonable facsimile of something along those lines.
Maybe I should learn to fucking draw. Ugh.

Talk about serious bumpage here lol. Good work but you still need quite a bit of practice, may I suggest not using so many lines in the sketching stages? Makes it look kinda crowded.
February 24th, 2009 #11
Ah, yeah, I suppose. Been doing a lot of doodling lately, though. Not much time for practice, as irritating as it is at times.
I have a bad habit with crowding things. Instead of "erasing" I tend to just go 'pfft whatever' and put some heavier corrections on top of the mistakes. It's very inelegant.
Whoops what am I doing. CURSE YOU, MOUTH. CURSE YOU WITH YOUR LIPS AND YOUR INDECISIVE HOVERING BETWEEN THE CHIN AND NOSE.

Oh Photoshop Elements. Where would I be without you and your easy, easy shortcuts?
Hm. Better off, maybe.
WELL INSTEAD OF ME DOING ACTUAL WORK OR ANYTHING, LOOK AT THIS MILDLY CREEPY STITCH-FACE INSTEAD. God what is his hand doing, stop that.
