Illustration Friday - Glamour

Hey! I'm back! I've been enjoying my little vacation but I wanted to stop in and tell you that the Bathrobe Samurai production blog is set up and ready to go! Be excited! I know I am!

I still want to keep up with the Illustration Friday projects so I'm using the image above for the "Glamour" topic. Why is said Bathrobe Samurai illustration glamorous you ask? Well, what's more glamorous than a new beginning!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Things will be back to normal as soon as life calms down but I'll still be popping in to pop off with more art and endless rambling. Promise!

Illustration Friday - E is for Ego!

I managed to get an Illustration Friday picture ready during lunch today and here it is! This is Ego, the Living Planet. For those who don't know (and that's most of you I imagine) Ego is a supervillain in the Marvel Universe. He's a self-aware planet who allegedly evolved from the gas and dust from the Big Bang. No, really! He's a living planet! With a beard!

Why are you looking at me like that...?

Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

Well, it's Monday again isn't it. These things seem to happen way too often. Today I bring you the logo-in-progress for the Bathrobe Samurai. I've become quite determined to do something with these characters and this is one of the baby steps. I'm going to introduce a Bathrobe Samurai specific blog here in the upcoming days and I'll let you know when it's up. It'll be a good way to keep things moving and plus it gives me a chance to ramble more. God knows we all want me to talk as much as possible. Until Wednesday....

We don't know what we want, but we are ready to bite somebody to get it.

I'm pretty tired today so this one will be short. It's another zombie panel. Aren't you excited? I've really been taking my time with this job since the deadline is easy and I want it to be decent. I've learned a lot about sequential art while working on it too so really the whole thing has been a good experience.

Mid-Day Edit: I stopped procrastinating and added some new links to the sidebar. Be sure to check them out. There's some gold in them thar links.

Old age is not as honorable as death, but most people want it.

I don't normally post the same picture two days in a row but I'm making an exception today. I made some adjustments to the original picture and I think it looks a lot better now. I left the background as is after all. Why? I dunno. I just settled it in my head, I guess.

Oh, I also took the time to turn it into a wallpaper image. I know a lot of you like that kind of thing so I'm offering one up. Just click the appropriate link below, right click and save. Unless you're a Mac user then do whatever Mac users do. I can't rightly remember.

Wallpaper 800x600

Let arms give place to the robe, and the laurel of the warriors yield to the tongue of the orator.

Oh, look! Another Monday. We're already a week or so into the new year. Feels a lot like the old year, really. Smells the same anyway. Oh, right. The picture. This is something I did this weekend. It's the Bathrobe Samurai, for those who don't know, and he's standing fast! I'm really pleased with the way the Samurai turned out and with the graphic nature of the black and red coloring of the background. The only thing I'm not sure of is the fencing and gateway in the back. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted so I'll probably go back and rework it after my brain chills out a little.

True friends stab you in the front.

Wednesday bloody Wednesday. Green zombie blood, anyway. I'm in a bit of a rush today so this'll be a short one. As you can see, our little adventuring buddy has had enough crap from these zombies and is finally takin' care of business. I'll see you guys Friday. There should be a Superman pic ready for then.
