So I was drafting up some ads and came up with this idea, but thought it would make a really cool wallpaper. So here it is. Clearly Bjorn is a bit of a Sith, but think of us more as Professor X and Magneto than Luke and the Emperor. We have a mutual respect, ya’ know?
My Second 90 Minute Challenge, in the vain of Stripsearch. I got a lot farther on this one than the last, granted thsi one was a bit simpler. This actually took me 100 minutes to complete, and I added some touch ups after I finished the word bubbles.
I like it for the most part, though Floyd in Panel 2’s face looks a little too big for his hair. And he looks super Grinchy, but I guess I like that.
Paper and pencil, must mean I’m drawing a DnD Character again!
So I’m reading this book from the Black Library's Horus Heresy Series Angel Space Marines. The book is called Decent of Angels. Very cool, if you like 40K. Anyway, I borrowed a lot of the feel for my character from the main character in the book, both of these guys are named Zahariel, for example.
And their both knights.
This quest is going to be cool though. My buddy Jiles Corey (guy next to me on the left) is DM’ing. The world is really cool. It’s nautically themed, achepelligo style world, lots of islands and boats. Magic is rare. And there are no humans (and no half-elves as a result). You may not the little point on the ear of Zahariel. He’s an elf.
An elf fighter! Str 20 baby! (and wisdom 15, whaaat?) We didn’t alter anything from the actual rules, but Jiles and I talked about how, due to the lack of humans, elves are a little more beefy in this world. Everyone else is wee folk (because orcs/half-orcs are ferral piratey types and not really part of society).
I’m really excited for this character. He’s not your typical elf in any way. I’m also pumped to be the party’s defender. Haven’t done that ever in 4E. In fact, I think I’ve played almost exclusively controllers. Except for that ranger.
Anyway, I’m so excited. I just hope he doesn’t fall off the boat. That scalemail looks heavy.
Good to be tumblin’ again.
Drew this on vacation, played around with different brushes and effects in Photoshop.
I just read The Tao of Pooh and it was really good. Changed the way I look at the world a little bit. And it inspired this piece of work.
I’m also more than ready for autumn. It’s my favorite time of year and I’m ready for those beautiful leaves, the harvest ales, and the crisp air. When it finally comes I’ll find a tree like this one.
This is a pretty sweet drawing of Bjorn overlooking an orbital docking port, before returning to [conquer] his homeworld.
I’m sticking this on the backside of the one with myself overlooking the DnD table, and putting them in the local comic shops.
Hey guys. Been a crazy couple weeks so I’ve been neglecting el Tumbs. But fear not, I’ve got some scans and stuff coming your way. In the mean time, check this out.
redid that drawing from my work notebook in Photoshop. I’m thinking of slapping some text on it and printing it on a postcard sized paper and leaving them at the local comic shops. Around here, local is good.
I’m working on a campaign for Pathfinder, and I love DMing. I drew this for fun in my work notebook (oops) to test out inking with a fun little picture. It was done with a ballpoint pen, nothing fancy.
I think it came out really well actually, I think I’ll make a digital rendition of it, so keep your eyes peeled.
So, I’ve been doing some work with pens lately. This is another sketch from last week’s "CHOOSE YOUR CHARACTER". This one’s the middle panel, obviously. I did the pencils in my car on my lunch break, and I did the ink last weekend.
I’ve been curious about inking (I even looked at a couple pen sets (though this one is done with nothing more than a bic permanent marker)) for a couple weeks. After seeing the Avengers and then grabbing stuff on Free Comic Book day, I was really thinking about the old ways.
Not to diminish what Bjorn and I do, but the old fashioned way of doing comics/graphic novels is really cool and a unique art form. So I wanted to take a whack at it. I’ve got a couple more coming up, I’m sure.
This is a quick caricature I did for my friend Chris (of Nonsense Society fame) for "CHOOSE YOUR CHARACTER". Chris didn’t actually suggest that Tyrion was more honorable than Ned, just perhaps more compelling of a character. Either way, Chris got me into A Game of Thrones on HBO, which is awesome, and I’ve started reading the book as a result. After Bjorn and I yammered on about how cool the show is (Bjorn’s actually on book five or some shit, and has hardly seen the show) we figured it be cool to give Chris a shout out.
