2012 Cap'N and 2013 Whats Happen'N

December 30, 2012 0 Comments

Thanks to all the customers and fans of me (Eryck Webb) and my work and all your support. The likes on Facebook grow every week, and the new watchers and fav's on Deviant Art increase. I'm also very very happy at the increased response and following on the blog site. Thank you thank you for all that. This little pipe dream that started 4 years ago has really gone from 'drawing 5 pencil drawings a day' to help generate income during an employment struggle, to - well its really turned into SOMETHING. Now I can honestly say, its something. And I'm excited to see where its going. Good bye 2012, and heres to 2013.

I've got some professional and personal goals for the New Year, a couple of them are:

  • Less saying what I'm going to do, and promising stuff to clients, and just getting it done and doing the best I can
  • Less taking on more work than I can get done in a reasonable time
  • No adjusting the price-list more than once a quarter, if that.
  • EWG work first, personal time out of the studio second and personal projects third.
  • Faster turnarounds
Thats a few must-haves for me on the professional end, and I've got a handful on the personal end as well.

What goals is everyone else setting for the coming year?

Spidey WarmUp

0 Comments

A couple days later I splashed on some colors to finish it out

Pretty stiff and what not after a couple days off for the christmas holiday. After all that christmas commission drawing frenzy even 3 or 4 days my hands got lazy. So wanted to do a nice full blown warmup this morning before tackling client work. Glad I did, really got the hands loosened up pushing through a lot of difficulty with his pose and proportions, but finaly my hands got warmed up and it started coming out right. The cobwebs are out and ready to tackle some client work. Everything the past couple days has been non-drawing type production so now I'm ready to draw draw draw!

Fun stuff, might finish out w/ background/ colors eventualy but I am very happyw ith this how it is. I love spiderman, and have never done a proper or very good art of him, so i think this is my best drawing of him to date!

Client work is go!

Christmas Commission Livestream Videos

December 22, 2012 0 Comments

Posting on the EWG site, previously unseen Livestream videos of the process on some of the Christmas Commissions I've been working on over the last couple weeks. Unless you were hanging out live watching them or at the livestream site recently, you probably didn't get a chance to check these out. Including the video of today's 2 coloring process, and one I just finished before making this entry, a start to finish of the Queen of Hearts order. I need collection of the Christmas Commission Special I've been working hard at. Really happy with the art produced and really ties it together with the season when theres one extra change or element I can do to really knock it out of the park for a customer that they wouldnt expect.

Enjoy!

Post Apocalyptic Mutant Girls - EWG Christmas Commission

0 Comments

Click image above, to enlarge

One of two christmas commissions finished up today, meant to emulate similar composition to the 'gas mask girl' piece I did before. Same universe. Had some free reign on the 'mutant' design, it was meant to be a person dealing with the effect of the fallout, not a monsterous grotesque person but a genetic mishap and they're trying to make the most of it surviving in this world thats become the 'new normal'.
Fun stuff, enjoyed articulating the guns based on actual photo reference of existing ones. Sooo yep
I also love sneaking in things like that 'wrong way' road sign. Fun stuff... more to come


Comments and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

Post Apocalypse and Cap'n Are Whats Happen'n

Work in progress screen shots of 2 christmas orders I'm working on today. Diggin how the gun came out, reference is the key kiddies :) The uzi's with modifiers and laser aim will be equaliy as 'correct'. Doin some post apocalypse and disneys cap'n hook today. Hopefuly later on after a much needed visit with the wife at the hopsital later I'll get a couple more done :) Was up till 3am lastnight, why not tonight too? :) Then got up around 9 and got to work again. Hey, I eat sleep and breathe this shiz. Anyways, get them finished up after lunch. These pencils are as far as I'm going to take them. Will finish the rest in the inking process/ colors.

Now for a sammich or something, and I'm currently working on season 2 of the Avengers. They've taken it up a notch, pretty darn good. And Ultimate Spiderman I'm working on occassionaly too. REALLY amazing art direction and animation, sometimes i wish it didn't have the spastic goofiness but it works well with spidey's personality i think. ANYWAYZ, get these wrapped up soon.

Fridays batch of fin Christmas Commissions Updated

I really like how this one came out, out of a batch I was working on today. They all came out really good but this one was a lotta fun. Hope the customer likes it! A green-lantern type heroine chillin on a planet in her bathing suit at a lake and workin on her flower creating with her powers, showin off a bit. Or making a rose lounge chair? You be the judge.
Will post the others later on. For now, I got it done (okay almost 3 hours past Friday) on the day I wanted to get it done by. Time for bed! Goodnight!

End o' the week update

0 Comments

On the agenda through the weekend, is tackling those remaining Christmas Commissions, and making them all AWESOME! Each day if time I will tackle one regular order as well. Yesterday I was on track with a regular order of a Iron Man commission (preview above) and my fuzzy son decided to go chicken bone diving and scare the crap out of all of us and get him a free truck ride to the vet. His rebellious trash diving resulted in updating all his shots and an x-ray and lots of man handling :) Hes also on a restricted 'bland' diet till Monday. No treats for going potty outside, no regular human or dog food. Just boiled beef and rice, and let me tell ya. Thats some DRY STUFF! Which is the point. So that was a bit of a day lost yesterday, but back on the reigns, did my morning Bump On A Log warm-up this morning inspired by said event. Over at http://bumponalogcomic.blogspot.com or http://bumponalog.deviantart.com, and ready to crack down on Christmas commissions. Doing 4-6 today. That number is always dependent on when I get to say the fourth, and I feel the quality of my pencils is waning, I stop and proceed to do ink/ color production, and wait to pencil more later on when I'm more fresh.

Monster Girl and Daimyo - Christmas Commissions Finished Up

December 18, 2012 0 Comments


Got these two wrapped up tonight, never really drawn a samurai guy before but fan of plenty of shows/ etc that have them so I know the drill :) Badass lightning fast draw... all that. And some cool shehulk-esque dragon girly, the challenge was make her armor-ish and scaley and keep her smexy. And super cut muscular style :) Check check check. Enjoy, for now only posting them on EWG website... will slowly add new stuff to the Deviant Art gallery as I go!

Thanks for lookin :) Was planning on posting the livestream session and what not, but must have pressed the wrong button when saving or something, I'm not seeing it available ... damn! Well, these two characters took me about 3 hours start to finish (800ish-1100ish) - were a lotta fun. Heres a sketch of the work in progress below:

Narthex Commission Finished

0 Comments

Finished up this BW commission of 'Narthex' a cool dragon girly type character. She doesnt always wear aviator gear but saw one like that in the reference and was like 'yeah! i wanna do that one!' so did her up like a little aviator ready for epic adventures!
Did way more gray tones than needed too but they came out nice I think

Sephiroth Commission - Wrapped up

Just wrapped up this order of a Sephiroth graphic which I designed to work as a isolated image for a tattoo. Thought this would look pretty sweet with the wing wrapping around and the fire (cause hes a badass who always has to be standing in or by fire) - werd! Makes me wanna watch Advent Children again!

Saria Christmas Elf - Christmas Commish update

0 Comments

Just a quick update. Whenever I get a chance to go above and beyond for a great customer who I really enjoy working for I always take it. Sure its a special where the prices are discounted and theres technicaly no changes, but hey... it didn't take that long and I know it'll make them 100x happier :) In this case I heard the request for the short style pigtails, but opted for a whim of big long exaggerated ones, but the customer wasn't looking for that, so naturaly they weren't completely satisfied. So I saw the opportunity to go in and hack off some hair and make her look righ t:) And might I say I love both versions, so there she be (above), the updated one! Waiting all cuddly in the customers stocking (inbox) ... hope they like it better! So theres a little christmas spirit for ya. Enjoy sir Saria of the Linde!
And the other Christmas commission for today, was fun doin a cute christmas elf, somethin smexy something christmasy. Nice to have free reign like that on a commission :) Alrighty, more to come over the week

Jam - Guilty Gear - Finished Christmas Commission

Fairchild Warmup Sketch

0 Comments

Did up a little Gen13 fairchild for warm-up this morning, took it a bit farther and 'neater' than meant to but was fun. The backside of some women is comparable (in my opinion) in attractiveness to that of a nicely designed backend of a sports car or something. Just the shape and design from the side/ back always has the 'highly tuned' stance about it. The angles, and the shape. Alright that's my rant, getting to work.

The title of this post says it all, hope everyone has a great holiday whether its Christmas, or Hannukah or any others. Enjoy the shopping, the nostalgia, the aesthetics of the season and remember to have hope and be thankful for the fortunate things in your life :) Thank you to everyone who made the Christmas special a success this year, look forward to those commissions getting to you well before Christmas day and any orders seeing a delay are on the slate to be finished up by end of the year. 

Heres looking forward to 2013, an even better EWG than years past, and more great things to come. Posting this up a little early, since the Christmas sale is booked and over, and now all thats left is production, and to kick off some EWG holiday spirit early :) 

Everyone have a great holiday, thank you SO much for supporting EWG and my art, and can't wait to do my best to take everything up another notch in 2013, but one thing that won't go up is the prices :)

A Work In Progress Look at Patrick Gerard's 'Ungrounded' page 2
Some heavy duty page production going on today. Inking my arse off but really want these to look great. Heres a work in progress shot with the backgrounds rendered on the establishing shots of these first three panels and then just gotta finish up the lineart on the characters, more black fills, and going back in with white/ black for some blending/ feathering effects. Coming along though. I'm digging it. Especialy the look of that blown out office space on panel 3 - alrighty. back to it.
