I really ought to get into the habit of posting something more than once a month. Believe me, it's not that I haven't bee drawing. I have about several hundred storyboard drawings from my class to prove it. Perhaps I should post those too. Well in the meantime, here is a Pokémon doodle I did a while back and decided to color. It features three of the Generation VI Pokémon that I used in my initial play-through. From left to right respectively we have Pancham, Bunnelby, and Chespin. I gotta say, being able to view them from any angle in the game's Pokédex makes life a lot easier when using reference.

You may have noticed I removed their tails in the coloring process. For some reason no matter how I colored them they just didn't look right to me. Besides, from that angle you probably wouldn't have been able to see them anyway.

Worktime Pokémon Doodles

It's no secret that Pokémon is my all time favorite video game series so needless to say I'm pretty hyped for the release of Pokémon X & Y. I've found myself doodling some of my personal favorites over the last few days at work.


Out For A Stroll

Decided to color one of my sketches with Photoshop. I've been learning a lot more of the program lately and most recently I learned how to separate linework from the background of a scanned drawing.

That's Right. More Mice!

I've been far too shy about coloring my own drawings, but you know what? F**k anxiety! This was with a pencil sketch that I scanned, inked, and colored in Paint Tool SAI.

Theater People

I go to the movies quite frequently. Heck I work at a movie theater. There are of course lots of interesting looking characters there for me to doodle.

Bullit Beagle

I've been watching DuckTales recently and decided to sketch my own Beagle Boy. This guy's name is Bullit, the getaway driver. I'm sure fans of the movie Drive will understand the hammer.


Let it be known here and now that Gargoyles is my all time favorite animated series. Yet I hardly ever attempt to draw them. Well here are some attempts to remedy that.
 Let it also be known that Hudson is my favorite character in the show.

Legend of Zelda Sketches

Finally managed to get a copy of the Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia a while back. Needless to say I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I hadn't drawn anything Zelda related in a while so I winded up doing a few doodles during some downtime at work. Personally I've always been a fan of the smaller Links. They just seem to have more charm.

More Mouse Guard Stuff!

Mouse Guard Fanart

I've been really into Mouse Guard recently. It's a graphic novel that recently won an Eisner Award and deserving so. I've been doodling the three main leads quite a bit lately. I think in the hands of the right people Mouse Guard would make a great feature film so I thought I'd try and design them how I'd like to see them on the screen.

 Kenzie generally plays the part of the leader. Somehow I always pictured his ears being pushed up a bit. He appeared to be the most well kept of the three. I also pushed his ears up a bit more than the others. I thought it would make him look a bit more proper.

 Saxon is easily my favorite character so far. I always pictured him as an adult version of Martin from The Secret of NIMH.. So admittedly I did observe Martin quite a bit. (In fact I think I lightly sketched him on the upper left corner) I also made him a bit bulkier than the other two since he's the most prone to resort to physical combat. I'd post some facial expressions but I seem to have misplaced them. I'll update this post when I find them.

Lieam was a bit of a challenge since many of them looked too similar to Kenzie. So I decided to tweak his eyes a bit and make them a bit larger since he's the youngest character in the book. Though I'll probably post another sketch of him sometime in a more interesting pose.

The Double Ball Bounce

Just finished up the follow up to the previous test. This was another exercise from The Animated Cartoon Factory. Lesson 1-1-2 to be specific. This was a good exercise in timing, secondary action, as well as squash and stretch.

The Ever-Imperative Bouncing Ball

Now that I finally have the means to shoot some tests outside of the classroom, I've started doing the assignments from Animated Cartoon Factory. In other words, it's time to animate! I'm still learning the basics through these exercises as well as assisting on some short films but patience is virtue in this medium. Here's the first assignment (and one that I'll have to practice from here to eternity) the bouncing ball.

Darkstalkers Character Design Contest

Capcom-Unity is apparently holding a character design contest to promote their upcoming Darkstalkers digital releases. In all honesty I've never actually entered any kind of art contest before. I think now is as good a time as any.The game is horror themed so I knew right off the bat I wanted to make a gargoyle. I've been looking at Gargoyle statues for inspiration as well as watching Disney's Gargoyles (my all time favorite cartoon!) Here are just a few doodles I jotted down after reading about the contest. I'm gonna work on making him look a little more intimidating.

Stop! Chopper Time!
