    Hethabyr,

    Your drawings are fun and full of imagination. The Voyage of the Wangdangdoodle is absolutely wonderful.

    Oh Dear Hethabyr,

    Or should I say Master Yoda I am ready to be a Jedi. On a serious note can you please teach me. I wish to be as great as you with in twenty years as well. I am a freelance Illustrator and artist and you have just kick started a massive inspiration bug in me.
    Teach me.

    The Dummy

    Thanks Quinn Simoes, InvertedChalupa, Legionare, and Proprod. Your kind and constructive comments are very much appreciated.

    Proprod... As flattered as I am by your request, I'm afraid my work demands and schedules pretty well make it impossible to fit in anything extra. All I can suggest is that you keep closely studying the work that inspires you, and don't neglect drawing from life. I think most of the people who contribute to this list are keenly aware of the importance that life drawing has in allowing you to advance as an artist, although anatomical correctness needn't necessarily be the be all and end all when it comes to creating something worthwhile.

    One other recommendation that I'd make, and I'd put it the same way to anyone who's striving to put together a meaningful portfolio of work, is that you concentrate on a few specific themes; things that will bind the overall body of your work together and make it recognizably your own. That's what concept art is all about, after all. One of the best ways to do that is to think in narrative or story telling terms whenever you sit down to draw. Make it personal, and don't be afraid to let your imagination run riot. Create your own little universe(s), and people it/them with creatures and characters (or contraptions) that are peculiarly your own. As you're drawing, too, keep asking yourself questions about the roles that the creatures or characters that you're drawing might play within the story or concept, and be ever conscious of the fact that you're purposely building something. Be aware, though, that what starts out as a tiny little idea to begin with can grow into something absolutely humongous - something that will take up a fair bit of your time and energy.

    To put it all in a nutshell: become story minded. Why...? Because everyone loves stories!

    All the best with your art : )

    Start Wars

    Central piece from a Star Wars parody cover. The original title we were going with was "Start Wars", which I thought was excellent, but by the time the book was published someone had changed the title to "Star Warped". Totally pants title, but such are the politics of publishing. Notice, too, how plain and simple this piece is, in comparison to the Tolkien and Potter parody designs. Initially we were set to include a number of characters from the Star Wars movies, but crazy deadlines meant that we had to cut it right to the bone, which is a shame. I'd so wanted to include Pizza the Hut! : (

    Thanks MonkeYoakum.

    Re keeping the pencil pics clean... If I'm working on a finished piece, as opposed to a rough sketch, I never let my hand touch the paper. I always have a leaning sheet for my hand to rest on. Once I've scanned a piece, on my bog standard Epson scanner, I'll usually do a quick clean up in Photoshop, using the clone and healing brushes, just to get rid of any little spots and blemishes. Presentation is everything : )

    VaDinci Cod

    Thanks Monotony. Yes, I think you did comment on my earlier, very brief "Great Googly Moogly!" thread. I ditched it, though, because it didn't have a thumbnail.

    There are a few rough sketches for the Start Wars project stashed away in a folder somewhere, so I'll see if I can look them out. If I remember rightly, Yoda became Yodella, a sort of effeminate stabpuppe in lederhosen, with a big alpine horn, etc. Mad stuff! : )

    This VaDinci Cod drawing is another example of how things became much more simplified, before the run of parody titles came to an end.

    Bumpot's dastardly deed

    There are certain crimes... for which no absolution should ever be given.

    Bumpot felt no remorse for what he had done; indeed, the sheer sense of pleasure that he'd experienced, as he'd wrung the last vestige of life from poor little Chirpy*, was something that would stay with him until the day that he himself died, which, as it happens, was only a couple of days later, when he was torn limb from limb by a...

    To be continued.

    *Chirpy the magic chicken.

    Ever increasing awareness

    Thanks Algenpfleger, and thanks also to Quinn Simoes.

    Algenpfleger... Most of what I'm posting has been produced over the last two or three years, whereas the pen and inks go all the way back to 1996!! I seldom work with pen and ink nowadays, since the bulk of what I'm commissioned to do is pencil. I do paintings occasionally. A certain amount of what I'm posting is hot out of the oven, so to speak, but it'll always be personal material. If I posted newly produced material done for publishers, I'd likely get into all sorts of trouble.

    I hope nobody minds me posting older material. Most of it, if I didn't post it here, would never see the light of day again.

    Dedicace solo

    Thanks again Algenpfleger.

    The low res digital pieces are produced on an online whiteboard. It might seem crazy to do work on there when I've got PS CS2 on my machine, but there's something about it that just appeals to me, even though it's only 72dpi, the colour palette is limited (I never use anything other than two tones of grey, and white, anyway) and it's got a pixel limit, which means that you can take a drawing so far, then it doesn't allow you to do any more. Why the heck does anyone use it? Haha! If you follow the link, then click on the little floppy icon (I think it's supposed to be a floppy) at lower left, you'll see a list of all the things people have been drawing recently, including a Yoblian Yellow-Bellied Pumplepicker, which I was doodling last night. Ran out of pixels, though, so I'll need to finish it in Photoshop.

    http://www.dessinateur.net/dedicace_solo.php

    Most of the kids who use the board draw on the communal part, and I'll draw on there occasionally, but I prefer to draw solo.

    http://www.dessinateur.biz/dedicace.php

    The board's owner/chief moderator is a French cartoonist called Benoit. Everyone calls him NA, for short. Good guy.

    oh i see! yeah, i know these boards, they're called oekaki boards where i live, whatever the reason may be. i think it's actually a really good invention, because watching others draw and paint is one of the most inspiring things ever! thanks for sharing that link!

    Gascoine Taloche

    The smaller and crumbier the particle, the more it's likely to engage Gascoine's attention. But hey! - we've all got our little foibles : )

    Abimlicus bird

    A decorative tile, depicting what is believed to be the mythical Abimlicus bird, brought to light during excavations on the burial mound of Queen Trinkus of Troiligum.

    Bambili Bolo, the celebrated writer, adventurer, and irrepressible raconteur, suggested that the Abimlicus is simply another guise for the Jooby bird, aka the "Burpy Heckpecker". The involvement of these birds in so many of the ancient Cyrimbalese legends led him to conclude that this creature, rather than being simply a flight of ancient fantasy, actually did exist. He even proposed, in his book "Exotica - Travels in the Mainland of Horpus", that the Heckpeckers were so fiercely intelligent, and so amazingly articulate as speakers, that their potentials for achievement in virtually every field would've rivalled that of any man.

    Shokle Spamblig

    Shokle Spamblig, a fairly typical Nilbian Sneeble.

    Although you're likely to encounter Sneebles of different sorts on any number of worlds in the Impus Booi sector, The Nilbian variety - readily distinguished by the rubbery lumpules on their heads - are to be found only on Nil, which is one of three hexoplial* moons orbiting Guppertopy, a large, erratically spinning stumpoid^ in the Goi system.

    *Hexoplial moons are thought to be unique to the Impus Booi sector, and what makes them so remarkable is that their outer mantles are trumpostically flimbular, although not so flimbular as to prevent the escape of large quantities of pengpaffles~ into the parent stumpoid's epispheric nimbus, if ever the pengpaffle quotient becomes critical... which it does occasionally, and always when it's least convenient.

    ^Stumpoid: A type of mamblial trypoblast.

    ~Pengpaffles: Small testaceous bongs.

    Hethabyr,

    Great update, forgive me for my ignorance, but do your pencils, such as the one above, ever get color added to them, you've probably already answered this question and quite frankly I am not sure color would do them justice anyway, they are stunning as is.

    Quinn
