Sweet Toothed Superheroes Commission Finished

July 27, 2012

Well, this little beasty was a monster, but got it inked and colored up! The lighting was challenging but ultimately I think it came out looking pretty great. Theres a second version that I'm only posting here on EWG website, otherwise it belongs to client as a gift portrayal of her and him as super heroes with doughnut and candy themes running throughout! Lots of fun, and hope the gift goes over great. Below is the version featuring a bit of silly dialogue and lettering balloons i came up with.

Onto the next commission!

Super Sweet Tooth Commish WIP Inks

Taking a quick food/ coffee break but heres what I have so far this morning on this two character full background commission. The characters are inked, just working on the background now. Basicaly blocking out the structure then BLOWING IT UP! Coming out good so far I thinks.

Post Lunch Thought - 7262012

July 26, 2012

Just a post lunch though. When told that my art is awesome, though its more of a 'comic book' style, and would I be interested in doing artwork that copies a different style, like say more fantasy/ digitally painted/ or some abstract cartoon style that's nothing like MY style which is fluently apparent in my portfolio/gallery, my answer will always be. 'Although this project sounds like it could be fun to work on, I am not willing to try to emulate styles that are not my own, if you hire me, you are hiring my style and my aesthetic spin on your project.' And will suggest you look elsewhere on deviant-art for what is sure to be a multitude of possible artists to hire to do your particular style.
Goes along the lines with ' here's a sample of the exact style I want, can you make a dozen more look just like this style' ... nope. One does not hire me to copy something exactly. You give me basic reference and I will remix it in to something fresh and new with my style. That's how it goes.
Thank you for contemplating my post lunch thought :)

Locked and Loaded For Another Week!

July 23, 2012

Great Googly Moogly! Well, definitly was good to get rested up and relaxinated over the weekend, now ready to get back at it this week. The game plan is to spend all day today working on backlog items, then tuesday and wednesday I'm doing all sketch proofs that need to go out, and thursday and friday will be 'completion' days where last week's OK'd proofs get finished and sent to their customers with a pretty orange and grey bow.
Everybody have a productive week, and as always, I'm available to take any commissions and answer any questions. Hit me up! And thanks also should go out to the handful of customers who took advantage of the SDCC free special last week! I'll make sure to make them extra saucey. Now that that convention's over, (all be it, the convention season isn't) people will be around to check out a live stream session or two this week and the internet won't be as vacant as movie theatres when they're showing an Adam Sandler movie ... yeah.

Generator Rex Commission Case Study Finished!

July 18, 2012

Kicking some arse this morning with Generator Rex commissions. 4 Characters doing together on one canvas. Never got to draw these characters before, but I'm having tons of fun with them. I used to enjoy the show, and now totaly feeling the commissions. So heres the finished sketch/ pencils of all four that I'm about to ink/ color on Livestream! Definitly staying true to the character designs but injecting my style into every inch! Whoo hah! Working on here in the first half of the work day today, and will update with work in progress shots as I go along on this post.

Now i've gotten done all the pentool work on straight edges and 'mechanical' type items. And ready to freehand the rest of the lines, and fill with black fills / black fill shades. Will post the finished of that next.

After a lunch break, and a lightning/thunder storm... got this all inked up! Coloring now...

And vwalla! Very happy with these colors and especialy the lighting/ shades/ highlights. Plus some new techniques I learned from some tutorials online about color balance tweaking and level adjusting post production work. I think it works well. And a little texture on the backgrounds. Why not. THATS A WRAP!

Thanks for checking out this case study, have to comment back to me below or on facebook let me know if you find this sort of thing useful, informative, or at least interesting!

Trixi Danger Playing Card Commission

July 17, 2012

Wrapped up this fun commission of Trixi Danger, whom I've been commissioned for before. When the client asked if she could be setup in some sort of 'queen of hearts' playing card fashion, i new it was gonna be fun. So basically I figured out the design and the post proportions, illustrated her in one picture then once I was happy with it flipped it over. In a nut shell this took place over about 3 hours. But the client is a good one and I want to make sure to do a good job for them :) They even ended up hanging out in the live-stream chat while working on it. Great way to end the work day. Enjoy, and who knows, maybe you'll pick up something or another from watching the process unfold in the recorded session below! EWG, continually blurring the line between illustration and design.

EWG - Looking out for the independent artist community

Artists beware, lowlife businesses or individuals coming to you with work but pushing the whole 'royalties' or 'percentage based on sales, not upfront' are only looking for one thing, ripping you off and taking advantage of amateur artists who might not know better. And just because they 'recently listed on amazon' doesn't mean they can guarantee jack crap on selling ANYTHING. If a potential hirer is not willing to pay upfront for the initial time and work on producing the art item in the first place, send them packing. The cost of production, and the post-production earnings of a given product once on the market are ALWAYS separate and unrelated. 
This following excerpt of the kind of pitch to look out for and say NO to is from some business [name removed] that I received this afternoon:
"..I saw your post on the Jobs Services section on Deviant Art and wanted to know if you would be interested in doing a project for us. We pay programmers, artists, and musicians royalties instead of upfront payment. Here are the amounts we pay based off net sales for art intense projects: Net Sales = Selling Price less 30% distribution costs allowance (i.e. Amazon, Paypal/Dataware order processing)40% of Net Sales: Programmer40% of Net Sales: Artist10% of Net Sales: Musician10% of Net Sales: DatawareBesides selling software through our site, we recently listed our software on Amazon: "
  I replied with:
"Royalties is nice, but the artist gets nothing for the initial production time?
Quite a ripoff your running there."
A few hours later I just got this (and last since I blocked them after this ) followup reply:
"Just because we do not pay upfront payment, doesn't mean it's a ripoff. A ripoff is when the artist does not get paid. We have paid every artist that has worked with us. Actually through royalties, the artist gets more than we would normally pay for upfront payment, just spread out over time. [ name removed ]
Well, to Mr [ name removed] all I had to say was (after a good laugh):
"Bunch of crooks. Hope no artist is stupid enough to work with you. The work deserves pay immediately, not just the sales you MIGHT make with the finished material later. Your offer basically has NO guarantee the person creating the product for you will ever get paid much if at all. Ridiculous. Completely ridiculous. - EWG "
I had included the name of the person/company that tried to pull this stunt but I decided, my overall objective here is to demonstrate what is NOT the right kind of person to be hired by. Crucifying the company and individual directly could just lead to idiocies ontop of idiocies so I will stick to my overall point and not point personal fingers. But avoid these types of employers. Clients that don't really want to pay for an artist at all, they want to cover their own asses and in the long run. They're going to get what they pay for with that policy. Amen.

Nuff Said.

Friday the 13th Black Cat SDCC

July 14, 2012

So for a cool down/ end of the night sketch I did Friday the 13th, (unlucky, bad luck if you see a black cat or walk under a ladder) and for San Diego Comic Con did a marvel character. Fun stuff. Alrighty, goodnight!

Darshin Studios Final Logos

The finished logo (s) for Darshin Studios client. Darshin (i believe, could be wrong) is an indian word meaning, as the client described: "...EXPOUND, TEACH, THINK THROUGH, UNCOVER TRUE MEANING, WHAT IS HIDDEN BENEATH - It is for a gaming company."

Great Tutorial From the Good Side of You Tube

July 13, 2012

Theres the dark side of You Tube... crazy videos slapped together  with crazy japenese music or attention-starved women dancing on camera. Well, the otherside is AWESOME, handy man tutorials, videos on how to fix stuff on your car yourself, videos for enthusiasts of whatever genre you can think of... and cool videos from other graphic artists like this! Never heard of him till I stumbled upon this video, and now following his work on deviant art. Was pleased to see we digitaly ink the same way, and though he pencils traditionaly then scans it and I anymore pencil straight on the computer, I think the basic process for his inks and even colors are the same as what I do. Whoever made the video made it pretty exciting and showed everything really well too. I learned a few new things from this, maybe you will too! I recommend.

Darshin Logo Case Study

Enjoying this latest logo job, for Darshin Studios. They develop thinking/ puzzle type games for apple iphone OS and so forth. Might have a few web games as well according to my general Google search. Anywho, if you click the tag called 'Darshin Studios' on this website's keyword cloud, it'll bring up the first proof and this case study together. I'm starting to catalog different clients works / process stuff under key words. So when you click them in that cloud, you can review that clients works with you so far. Kinda nifty. Anywho here is proof two where they liked proof 1s typography but wanted a symbol so developed some ideas around the basic concept of their work. Then the bottom is narrowed down two that they liked but wanted the puzzle board situated like the rubix cube. I thought the D in the puzzle board should look like the one in the typography unaltered so I made it an unaltered 'D piece' and I liked this combination of colors so presented a possible color solution. Fun stuff, getting there. Alright, onto other stuff n' what not. Might be working late tonight since wife is going out with her mom to a store or two. Anywho ... good stuff... have a good weekend everybody

8 Full Color Single Commissions Wrapped UP!

July 11, 2012

Livestream - Adventure Time and Tank Tossing

Did these sketches on livestream, which I'm still currently on. Have switched over to 8 single character $20 commissions I need to wrap up today. But these were a blast. At this point I've sent them to the client and customer to be OKAY'd and then I will finish them out in ink and colors! But something about these loose yet tight sketches with the lighting/ shades plotted out are pretty sweet.

Darshin Studios Logo Work In Progress

Pretty happy with these design ideas for the Darshin Studios logo commission. We'll see if the client likes anything here or if I'll need to come up with a couple more. Based on the rush they're putting on it I'm thinking we'll be moving on to color / finishing it up quickly!

I'm digging the typographic work on these though! All sort of reflecting the meaning behind the word Darshin and the fact that they make iphone app games.
