Cartoon Self Portrait 3

This is the third in a series of cartoon portraits of myself. I decided I wanted a new profile picture for myself on Twitter, so I drew and colored this. I thought the halftone background would be a cool touch, instead of just a plain, solid orange one. At first, I had his eyes wide open, but then I though he needed to look more calm, so I have the eye lids down somewhat. I'm also using this picture as my profile picture on Blogger. I think it turned out really well.

Alien Faces

Here are a variety of alien faces. Some of them closely resemble humans, and others are more unusual. I started the drawing with the guy with buck teeth and tattoos. I didn't intend to do a group of faces right off. I just started drawing that guy and, at some point, I got the idea to do a whole bunch of faces. I drew them on paper and inked them with a Sharpie pen. I discovered Sharpie pens awhile back and I've been using them for inking my drawings ever since. I'm actually still using the first ones I've ever gotten. They're supposed to not smear or bleed through the paper, and indeed, they haven't since I've been using them. Lately I've been using a mechanical pencil for my drawings. I use an old Pentel that takes 0.7 mm lead. I've been using a Pacon Artist Sketch Diary for sketching and doodling in. The paper is great.

Joker Face

Ja-ja-ja-ja-ja-ja-ja-ja-Joker face! I drew this in my cartoony style on paper with markers, a pencil, and a pen. I've had this in my sketchbook for awhile, but I hadn't gotten around to posting it until today. I've thought about doing comics with DC Comics characters at some point, in my cartoony style. I might do Marvel too. Maybe Darkhorse or Image, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If I do, I'll surely post them on here and my deviantART page.
