Marvel Nouveau (set 1)

Finally got around to finishing up a third Marvel Nouveau piece, which I think rounds out a nice set of starting three.

Cyclops, Gambit, and Wolverine are next on the list, but who knows when they'll come around.

FREE Custom Comic Dialog Balloons for Photoshop

Long time, no blog! (I swear I'll get the hang of this some day!)

But is a pack of dialog balloons I made in Photoshop. Scalable, with a more "natural" feel than the otherwise perfect ellipses and rectangles Photoshop can create by default. I've started growing weary of my comic dialog looking too "clinical" so I thought I'd make some strides to add a little vitality into the balloons.

Feel free to use these at your discretion—no credit necessary. I'd personally just like to know what projects you use them on at all, so do drop me a line if you use them for anything. I'd love to see it!

All I ask is that if you intend to share them, please just link back here or directly to the deviantART page they're hosted at. I'd just like to know how much traffic these things generate. I'll be making more as time and necessity permits.

Alright, enough jibber-jabber!
To get the custom shapes (which you'll have to unarchive and then import into Photoshop) CLICK HERE!

Happy comicking!

Slamfist Character Designs - Sketchdump

Here are some character designs I've been working on for Slamfist Media. These are part of the second wave of characters they've commissioned from me. I'll be sharing the finished turnaround sheets for each character after those guys upload them all.

Characters are properties of Slamfist Media.

Sketch of Korra done in Manga Studio. Worked at a 12.5% zoom level—let's you feel like you're hashing out a thumbnail sketch, but you're actually working on a full page. Obviously still a sketch, but it's fun!

Crappin' around with Sculptris

So, I finally updated to Mac OS 10.6 this weekend opening me up to a bevy of new software to tinker with—one of which is Sculptris (which you can get legitimately free, by the way).

I've messed around with it before, but this is only my third attempt to actually sculpt something of merit, and my first at tackling a full-body anatomy. Truth be told, it's also one of the only organic constructs I've attempted in any 3D software.

Right now the idea is to turn this into Bonnie, but today was mostly just for getting more used to the program and handling it to make something fairly basic.

Pretty fun practice. Still need to figure out a more practical way to sculpt appendages and digits. You'll notice that I didn't bother individualizing the toes—the fingers were a bear! The hands started out pretty spiffy themselves, but I made the mistake of simplifying their geometry too much, and lost some of the detail.
