Toony Batman Face

Image
Here's an old Batman cartoon drawing. I thought it might be interesting to do a cartoon Batman with exaggerated features, like a large jaw. By the time of this drawing, Batman had gone back to the "Year One" chest symbol, which was just a bat. I prefer to draw the version with the yellow oval if I can. I admit though that the "Year One" symbol is pretty cool. This started out as a paper drawing and ended up digitally colored. I also like to do black with blue or dark gray highlights on the cape, cowl, etc. There was a time when all those parts of Batman's suit were almost entirely blue. December, and Christmas time, officially starts tomorrow. So, Merry Christmas! To those who don't celebrate Christmas but rather another holiday, happy holidays!

Hulk

Image
Here's a Hulk picture I drew some years ago based on Ang Lee's Hulk. It's one of those drawings I did that started out on paper and ended up as a digitally colored artwork. I thought Ang Lee's Hulk was pretty good. However I do like that the remake has more action, and Hulk actually fights another being on his level of strength. Happy Holidays!

Christmas Time II

Image
Here's a sequel to my "Christmas Time" artwork. Like the previous one, I made this with dA Muro on deviantART. I started listening to Christmas music I think towards the end of October. Now it's nearly officially Christmas time. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. Thanksgiving, which was yesterday, is another. I love to feast! Happy holidays!

Three People

I wasn't going to post anything today since it's Thanksgiving, but I decided I had some time to do a blog entry. I intended for the guy in the first panel to be a chef, either inspired by or being Emeril Lagasse. I think he actually ended up also kind of looking like a particular actor on TV whose name I don't know, or don't remember. Then there's the woman in the panel next to him. Below, left is another woman. I don't remember if I had a particular occupation for her in mind, but she could be a nurse, or maybe a doctor. Happy Thanksgiving!

Donatello

Image
Here's a drawing I did of Donatello, of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, back in 2007. I used a tool for lighting effects in paint shop. I also used a patterned fill for the background and added a shadow behind Donatello. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. So if I don't post anything then, happy Thanksgiving!

Batman Logo Airbrushed

Image
I did this some years ago with a simple airbrushing kit. I airbrushed it on a blank post card. I used a stencil for the Batman logo. I seem to remember altering the colors with a paint shop program. I thought the change in colors made it look interesting. I seem to remember the red spots were originally a different color.

Super Freddy

This is a drawing I did for a contest that author Christopher Hart is holding on deviantART. I drew it earlier this week. Yesterday I inked it and colored it with color pencils. The contest is almost over, but here is Christopher Hart's journal entry describing it.

Flashback Friday: Captain America 1995

Image
This is a drawing I hadn't seen in years. My sister was going through some stuff and found this, and she gave it to me. Judging by the red-inked writing on it, it's one of my drawings I submitted for a grade in middle/junior high school. I drew this back in 1995, hence the year in the title. I think it has some flaws, but it's pretty good for where my drawing skills were at at the time. I thought this would make for a good "Flashback Friday" post.

Batman Logo 2

Image
In my opinion, Batman is one of the coolest heroes in comics. I like to draw him or his logo or other Batman related things sometimes. Here's one of those drawings. I digitally colored this drawing in a paint shop program. I gave it a leather textured background. From what I remember, the texture in photo shop is called "book" something, or something "book." Batman is a great character, and I really enjoy all things Batman.

The Flash Logo

Image
Here's an old artwork I made of The Flash logo. In my opinion, The Flash is one of the greatest superheroes ever. There's a Flash TV show on The CW network now. The first season of the show was last year. It's a great show! I'm happy that it did what the early '90s show, with John Wesley Shipp, didn't get the chance to do. That is, continue past the first season. The Flash is a great superhero who deserves a long-running TV show, and I hope that's what he gets.

Doodle Power!

Here's an interesting article about doodling titled The Power of the Doodle: Improve Your Focus and Memory. The title pretty much says explains what the article is about. If you're studying or trying to focus on or remember something for whatever reason, doodling may help you. It's an interesting article that I think is worth a read.
