    MuffinMan's Love shack...

    finally i've decided to put up a sketchbook...
    here are a bunch of ideas i have for my own cartoon.
    i've been inspired by invader zim, hellboy and funny cartoons i watch on adult swim (it's on cartoon network).

    so i'm trying to come up with my own style.
    i need to learn more things about light and shadows...
    it seems to me i'm focusing on one light direction too much...
    perhaps i should take pictures of myself with different light directions as reference...that should help..
    well here, see for your self.

    MuffinMan's Love shack...
    MuffinMan's Love shack...
    this character is the main character...i dunno what to call him yet...i was thinking of calling him "the gimp" like in the movie pulp fiction or i'll call him something else.

    MuffinMan's Love shack...
    and here is an idea of a villian who practices the voodoo arts and takes over a zoo or something and makes all the animals in the exhibits go berserk...

    still it is a WIP.
    i don't know if this will become succesful or not...just gotta try and stay original as much as possible. please give me your best crits and comments.

    Haha, this looks like it could be hilarious. You're very right about the light source though.. other than that great start!

    Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...

    whoa, your friend looks hawt! anyway. not too bad for a start. keep on practising. don't give up and work on drawing what u actually see. the work from the photo is quite off in some aspects. watch the angle.

    well, i'm back...i have been doing some oil painting...
    i'm really getting the hang of it, suprisingly fast.
    here is one of some sci-fi soldier....
    MuffinMan's Love shack...
    and a few pictures of the same painting of the crow so you can get a few good looks at it...i just can't get a decent image when i don't have a scanner that is big enough.
    here is the crow.

    ...you may probably have the feeling if i'm slowly downgrading everyday...but not really...i'm kinda getting tired of this cartoon thing i'm doing..i might as well jump back to doing some more detailed and beautiful artwork. this may be my last cartoon piece...i'm not sure...
    here is Dr.Gene Pool and Minion.

    i didn't spend a whole lot of time on this. it was a quickie...

    Some pretty cool stuff in here, I like the style of your toons.

    However on some of the oil paintings and this most recent piece, you don't really have any consistent lighting - everything's the same brightness, there's no real depth there. The lack of obvious light and shadow is making everything seem pretty flat.
    Look up some reference, choose a position for a single light in a scene to be coming from, and try to paint in the values to give the whole image more depth and form, I think this will improve your paintings greatly.

    Keep it up!
