The big 5-0. I'm pretty happy with myself for making it so far. Hopefully I can keep this going for a good long while. Anywho. Here's Axe Cop from the wonderful webcomic Axecop. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out: http://axecop.com/

So over the last quarter, I've been working on a pitch for an animated series in this class called The Pitch. At the end of the quarter (A week from tomorrow) we're pitching our projects to a person from Warner Brothers. We're told that she's looking to buy pitches, so there's a small bit of hope in there. I'm not going to assume mine is what she's looking for, but it will be an interesting experience to say the least.
You've seen some of this stuff before, at least in concept. The top is obviously the logo. It's supposed to be a wrestling championship belt. Then there's the main characters. Rex and Bobby, who've shown up here before followed by The Don, Grandma Rose, Maria and then Martin. Then there's the layout for the Mega Dome, set up for the WWWL's wrestling events.
I still have a good deal of stuff to do before next Monday. Finish the pilot script, complete another layout at least, and then storyboard out something. I'll try to post that all here once it's done. That way it'll be clear that I do more than just those silly and sometimes awful daily sketches.

So, I'm going to be doing some pages from a Marvel Adventures Spider-Man script for one of my finals. I figured I would spend today's sketches doing a little working out of how I want my spider-man to look. Still no idea yet. But here's a start. John Romita Jr. draws one of the best spider-mans in my opinion, so I'll definitely be looking at his stuff for some inspiration.

Today's isn't anything too special. I've been busy with other stuff. Might not get to do anything other than a quick sketch for a while until I get stuff done before finals come around.
But anyway, here is sketch 46, Conquest from Invincible!

Earlier today I decided I would google "ape-x" because that's usually what I do when I come up with an idea for a character. I never like having a character that has the name of another character. So I was pretty disappointed to find that Ape-X is a character from some marvel comics in the 80's. I don't think she was anything big, but it is still very disappointing. Here's the link to the wikipedia page for her: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ape-X
Not to mention her design is ultra lame. At least compared to my awesome backpacked guy up there. C'mon. She doesn't even have legs.
Anywho. I'd still like to take this character somewhere. Either way, I'm sure he'll show up here again.
However, I'll probably do something different tomorrow. Just for some variety.

Here's a character design I did earlier: Ape-X. A superhero gorilla. The design isn't too special since it's sorta the first idea that came to mind. My friend Scott game up with the name and idea, and I think it is awesome. So I'll probably try to see what better stuff I can come up with for him.

Forty days and countings. Watched School of Rock earlier, which is why I drew Jack Black. Likenesses are tough. Don't judge.
Then there's Gun Mummy. The first one is pretty awful looking with the inks. Which is why I tried to go with a clearer one with the 2nd. Yep.

So, today I got the final issue of the Invincible Presents: Atom Eve and Rex Splode mini. In it, Rex gets his first costume or whatever. I honestly think its infinitely cooler than his regular duds, but yeah. Great issue. And I love this design.
