RIP Bernie Wrightson

Bernie Wrightson has passed away. He was a legendary artist. I remember reading Cycle of the Werewolf, by Stephen King, and his art in that book was awesome. His art was very detailed, and he was great at setting a mood for stories like that. His art was amazing, and he will be greatly missed.

Drawing

I whole month has gone by and I hadn't done one post during that time. I haven't given up on my art blog, I just haven't felt like I've had anything to post. I have been doing drawings just about every day. I've got a sketchbook that I've been drawing in. Generally I prefer sketchbooks with heavy weight paper in them because I like the feel and what it's like to draw on the pages. This sketchbook has a different type of paper, but it's good. I got a big drawing pad for Christmas that I think has something along the lines of the heavy weight paper in it. I've sort of got ideas for that pad. I probably won't do anything like superhero drawings in it. I've got other types of drawings in mind. I don't know if I'll post any of it on here. For one thing, the paper is much too big for my scanner. In any case, I'm keeping pretty busy with my art, and I may get busier with it.

Bob Ross

Bob Ross was a great painter. He had a show on public television. He's known for his very calm and peaceful personality. He's got a site at BobRoss.com. It's got things like videos of his show. Netflix also has two editions of his show, which by the way is titled The Joy of Painting. At the end of each episode, Bob Ross would always say "happy painting, and God bless."

Growling Werewolf

"Growling Werewolf"
I drew this on paper and scanned it and digitally colored it. The original drawing is just a werewolf head. I think I basically just wanted to use this to experiment with my Wacom tablet, but I didn't want to bother drawing a body on the werewolf. If I'd been doing it to get published or something, I would have. I might have also done more work on it in paint shop.

John Wesley Shipp As The Flash

"John Wesley Shipp as the Flash"
The Flash TV show in the early 1990s was awesome! John Wesley Shipp did a great job of playing Barry Allen. He now plays Jay Garrick on the current show on the CW. It was great to see the older show when it first aired. It wasn't long after the 1989 Batman movie had debuted. The Flash costume cool, and John Wesley Shipp looked like he could fit in in a Tim Burton Batman film. The above picture is a drawing I did of John Wesley Shipp as the Flash some years ago.

Wolverine Profile

"Wolverine Profile"
This is a drawing I did on paper to start with. I digitally colored it. Wolverine is a great character. The Logan movie is coming up in March. If you haven't seen the second trailer for it, you might want to check it out. Hugh Jackman is an awesome Wolverine.
