crazy anatomy studies man! Love the clean lines
My Sketchbook [ACTUALLY UPDATED!]
I have 800 posts
We're on page 43 now, what are you waiting for? I had a lot of fun going over that last page btw.
NickyBeats - The skeleton and me are history, he hit me too much too often...!
BlightedArt - Thanks bud, i thought they were a bit stiff. Glad you see it differently, makes me feel a bit better about them!
walnut - Gah, look at my lazy ass, heres that update as promised Glad you dig that stuff man, hope to have more exciting things in the future! You rock!
chuck18mp - Clean lines are the name of the game. Not really though, it would probably be good for me to break away from such 'precise' linework from time to time, anyway, thanks amigo!
Two updates in a day, joy! Heres that 6-page comic i mentioned earlier, starring your friend and mine, Garlic Pal! This was for a food based character sequential competition, this won me round 1 .Though to be honest it wasnt too much of a contest, the others didnt take it as seriously and just did it the night before. You can imagine how theirs turned out, crap pencils and no inks, etc. Anyway, did this to get my feet wet in comics again, hope you dig it,Let me know what you think~!
damn those anatomy studies blew my mind. Any advice on a good way to efficiently learn all the muscles? Doing studies like that make me dizzy sometimes
Thanks for dropping by Tofa! As for your question, i don't know how effective my method of study really is. I can't say i know the names of many major muscle groups, only really the basic placement of where the masses should go. After I do studies like that on the last page it all sticks in my head for a while, but eventually i find myself fumbling to remember certain muscular patterns and such. I think if i went about my studies different and actually focused a bit more on memorizing what's what things would stick better in the long run.
Though i'm not sure if that really answers anything for you. Something i always try to keep in mind is symmetry and balance. It's also helpful to draw a skeletal form first and built the muscles on top of it, trying to keep in mind how they attach and overlap, building mass. Browsed through your sketchbook earlier and you're definitely doing well with your studies, looks like you've got a keen sense of construction already, so i think it's just a matter of constant work and things like muscles will be easy as pie! Hope that was a bit more helpful
Hey folks, for this update, sketchy business, stuff and things including concept sketches for the comic. More to follow soon!

dude this is awesome!! i cant wait to read the next issue!! really love the pacing, and panel layouts!! the characters too obviously haha, love the burger dude... too bad he got snatched up just when he found fredom ha. LOVE IT MAN!!! keep it coming!!!
LOL... a little self-insert on the hamburger eater? The comix was offdahook as the kids say...(some of the kids say).
Loved that... you have a gift for that type of storytelling and staging. You and TheGnoll are like peas in a pod, for sure.... and you're both destined for comix greatness. Garlic pal is amazing.
The clam man is cool too. Good to see so many rapid-fire updates. This sh*ts gotta be feeling pretty fun.
MetalFingers - Thanks dude, you've been up to some mad work as well! Thanks for droppin' by!
Williamb. Hand- What, Really?
psage - Heheh, you caught me! Really happy to hear your comments on the panels man, glad it all flowed well for ya. I better hope i break in someway or another, can't wait to finally get some collab sequentials done together with the gnoll. Once that takes shape then i'll have a better feeling of this whole comic book thing. on that note gotta zap him an email soon! Thanks again dude, should have more for you to spy soon!
NickyBeats - Hey, thanks dude! That comic was something different for sure. I did the best i could with the character designs provided, check this one out! Heh, stay tuned for more comic updates soon man!
Drawing i did for a Black Dynamite contest some of my friends entered over at thingverse.com .Got a bit sidelined and threw it together the day of the deadline :B Some lankiness issues but whatever! I'll get better in time. You can see doodles for it in my previous post. SEE YA
that white devil must have called him a "JT"... haha love that movie...
"my mommy said my father's name is black dynamite.."
"aaahhh ...hush up now girl, a lot of cats got that name...."
thanks a lot man, thats some really solid advice. V.helpful! I need to find myself a life size skeleton ^^
Tofa - Awesome, glad you could find some use out of that. And yes! My anatomical skeleton has been one of the biggest aids in musculature studies. I'm sure a small desk skeleton would suffice in a pinch though!
insane lemur - Yeah! Great to hear, thanks a bunch man!
NickyBeats - Y'know i've actually never seen the movie or animated series, i really should though. Seems right up my alley! Thanks man!
Heres a 4x7inch sticker I did for a friends sketchbook. Mmm chilidog! Tried out watercolors this time instead of my typical marker stickers. Though if i had it my way there'd be some mustard on that puppy too. I may redraw one for myself soon.

dude, sweet comic so good, twas delicious. Also question, you have inspired me to make a sticker for my Sketchbook, so i was wondering what paper (stock [gsm], brand, type and whether it is sticky paper or you just glue it on) you use.
i loled as much as i wowed at your sketchbook you have awesome creativity do cherish that man being outside the box is a gift C: and do keep up the anatomical upgrading that is what makes a good craftsman the best craftsman, keep up this workflow i wish you the best!
man your work is consistent really dig where it's going
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
great to see your new stuff and the increasing level of your skills!
What about some new shapes? ;-) If you need more muscle references, try these:
Finally I added your sketchbook to the pencil masters thread.
Shoot. Have I been out of it. I wish I knew how to keep track of people's threads because you've had a ton of updates, it seems.
I really enjoyed the garlic comic. You have such a clear handle on characterization and story. I like how you could see the soul sucked out of the gingerbread man and know exactly what was going on. A lot of people wouldn't even try such strangeness, let alone pull it off. Great stuff.
