The Drawing Board #14 is Now Up!

The Drawing Board #14 is now up.

The Drawing Board #14 is Almost Complete!

Image
I'm almost finished with The Drawing Board #14. I think I might have it up in the next few days. I've completed the details, and I've got three panels colored. I figure I'll wrap up the date story in the next one or two issues. I want to get ready for October. I'm thinking of doing Halloween-themed issues next month. I'm also thinking of doing a story focused more on Jack's comic strip. So, that's what's going on with The Drawing Board.

Gnomes are Cool!

My dad likes gnomes, so I drew this picture of one. I also digitally colored it. I found some new options in the tools on my paint shop program, and I tried one on this artwork to give it that lit-from-above background. I didn't get the background as bright as I wanted it, but I think it turned out pretty well.

Brundlefly Rough Sketch

This is my interpretation of the "Brundlefly" creature from the 1986 remake of The Fly. The face off to the right is Seth Brundle in mid-transformation. I know that the Brundlefly creature doesn't have wings in the movie, but I wanted to draw them on him.

The Boy Who Loved Batman

I'm done with the script and layout stages of The Drawing Board number 14. The details are up next, then coloring. So that's what's going on with TDB. I'm currently reading Michael Uslan's book The Boy Who Loved Batman. Michael Uslan has been the producer on all the Batman movies since Batman in 1989. He's a huge lifelong comic book fan. He's taught a college course on comic books at Indiana University. He's Batman comics. He was one of the people at the very first comic book convention, which was in New York. This book really appeals to me as a comic book guy. Also, Michael Uslan getting the 1989 Batman movie made is partly why I'm such a huge comic book fan and Batman fan, and an artist. Comic books, especially the comic book movie Batman of 1989, inspired me to become an artist and pursue art as a career. I'm almost halfway through the book right now. It's a really interesting book, and I recommend it.
