Dragon Ball Z 30 Min Warmup Jam Session

July 26, 2013

A 30 minute warmup sketch this afternoon after lunch to get in the groove for the heavy artin I need to do rest of the day. Decided to toss on a power ballad playlist and speed draw me up some Dragon Ball Z - love the concept/ idea behind that whole series just wish the dialogue/ etc was treated better so its not so embarrassing to watch. Cause the whole concept of the warriors fighting and maxing out and achieving new levels beyond the scope of known mastery and working hard and unlocking abilities and talent levels with every new challenge and the more and more they practice and get experience is just a neat thing. So here's Goku at Super Saijin I level, the man who achieved Super Saijin IV eventually. Anywho. Fun stuff, don't get to do nearly enough Dragon Ball Z stuff. This is similar to my Mario bros warm-up sketch earlier this week in I challenged myself to pick a popular character/ series and do my own "realistic" or rather just my own style but staying true to the character in essence. 

Fun stuff. Here's the video from the 30 minute impromptu Livestream. I posted it on twitter/facebook and deviant-art for whomever was able to come out. Thanks to Witty for making it out :) Enjoyed havin you stop by! On To More Work!

Livestream was farting around getting the video posted on the page so I am using my own recording :) Never gonna loose a recorded session again!

TnC Strip 05 Out Today!

Testing New LS approach whilst inking

July 25, 2013

Just trying out a new approach to Livestream Video recording/ posting for future stuff. This one tested while inking Ungrounded Page 30 lines and a few blacks. Saved recording to hard-drive and uploaded when posting. Will see how it works. If video below works ok then it worked if it didn't then will probably not do it this way any more.

Final 25 Eternals Commish Livestream A Wrap!

Click To Enlarge

THANKS TO ALL FOR A GREAT LIVESTREAM! It took six hours from 8pmEST Wed evening to 2amEST Thursday morning but I got it done! I took my time, worked it every step of the way till I got it looking/ feeling like I was going for and I really think the whole thing just came together nicely. 

 But PHEWWoo! This was a monster! But its 99% there finally  After about a month of process, maybe more I would have to look. Right now the next step is giving customers one last look over for color tweaks. Once they approve everything, and a lot of it was approved live last-night on Livestream, then will call it done done and will publish the whole process, of what Livestream videos there are and the screenshots along the way.

I want to say again, THANKS to everyone who came out and watched it happen live, I think we had up to 15 or 16 people out more of the time. Especially thanks to those who stayed the whole time, this was definitely a long one! 
I'm sorry to say the Livestream recording might not have worked, I'm talking to LS support about their mess up. I checked, all my settings were right. Just seems like 1 out of every 4 broadcasts will NOT show up on the video library afterwards and it pisses me off. So trying to see if LS can do anything about it but thinking I will most likely not be able to retrieve the video. So those who were out got to see it come to life, those who didn't missed out probably as the video might be lots to cyberspace for ever :) So onto any final changes that come back. But hoping the overall consensus is good and we can call this sucker done! Freaking awesome. 

At some point down the road, would love to do an expansion (separate piece) Since they have new team members and also a companion piece with the main nemesis of each of these characters! But... maybe next quarter LOL.

At some point later on will post a process article but for now heres a glimpse at the finished piece :) 

Thanks again to Eternals Inc for the amazing opportunity to do this for them, and for coming out and supporting me being up late working on it each week on Livestream, and hope you enjoy it for a long time to come!


Follow up a few hours later: Livestream Tech Support says theres a 5 hour limit on Livestream videos. And if I had watched a count down timer then it would have let me know if I was in the time limit. I don't use that thing I use a different broadcaster. Long story short the final video, did not save to the Livestream library cause it was an hour too long. Who knew? I'm curious to know what their excuse is for 2 or 3 hour videos I record and don't save either. 
Sorry to the Eternals out there, and hope this doesn't disappoint you too bad. Thanks for coming out and seeing it happen live. 

Update 7/30: Replaced image with final corrected art

Self Employment Food For Thought

July 24, 2013

"Self Employment doesn't necessarily mean better pay or shorter hours, just the freedom to do it how you see fit." ~ Some dEWd

Just a bit o' contemplation I had yesterday. Though sometimes the hours are long, and the pay is about the same in some cases as workin for some schmuck nursing his boat money, I believe the true benefits are in the freedom to push your craft farther with no glass ceiling and no limitations or others capping your creativity. Also is the freedom to work your own schedule, start whenever you want finish whenever you want and tweak the whole approach to your business anytime you see fit in a constant effort to improve and streamline.

 I believe the potential for bettering oneself and your chosen field while being self employed is limitless.

Ungrounded Page 26 Colors

July 23, 2013

Livestreamed for about 3 or so hours tonight starting with the finished inks of this, page 26 of the book I'm working on right now, Ungrounded. It was a massive page with lots and lots o' people and stuff and I think I ended up with a pretty sweet looking page when it was all said and done. Enjoy checking out the process. Sorry for a couple songs that are a bit on the racy side. But public internet radio, what ya gonna do lol. Enjoy. Can't wait to get this book done and see it in print. Easily my best comic work to date.

Typically pressing play below will open a new window. Just close that and press it again and you can watch it here. Livestreams wierd like that.

Rock'in Livestream Session

July 19, 2013

Click To Enlarge

Lastnights Livestream session had a lot of rockin stuff going on. Namely the two feature pieces, one of which was this RocketGirl champions online based commission. Not sure if the customer ever made it out to check out the piece but some fellow gamers were out there loving seeing this character they recognized come to life. I have always been a huge fan of rocketeer and that whole era and 'golden age' of aviation stuff so I really wanted to do something epic for this. She originaly in the approval sketch had hands down at sides as you can see below. The final piece has more dramatic clouds, the arm sort of completing her overall 'arrow' like shape and i tilted her angle a bit to make it fit across the canvas better. Very happy with the result and hope the client is too! Ya know I havin fun if I work in all kindsa glorious shine and flares LOL. If I could change something and do it over I'd probably do the legs/ boots better but I think they work well regardless.

Check out the Livestream of this session. Also including the beginning of the other half of this 'rock themed' night, HaseoBlack's punkrock bunny original character that I started falling asleep towards the end of the lineart inks LOL. SOrry Haseo, will get it finished up and to you soon! But glad you came out and we could make changes live like that. Also the night featured a largely rock-based soundtrack with lots of energy!

Enjoy! And see you next week hopefuly for another Livestream!

Sister of Battle - Inks and Colors Completed

July 11, 2013

Click To Enlarge

Inks and Colors side by side, of this cool Sister of Battle commission for a customer. Held off till after the birthday of the Warhammer fan the customer bought this for before posting. I then forgot about it and then just saw it again so here it be! My first Warhammer based commission. Hope to do many more! Fun stuff. I particularly grew fond of these righteous women the more i looked at reference and info about them. They're definitely on a mission from god! (blues brothers reference). The idea was 'epic battle pose, with ruins or gothic themed background' and i was let loose. The reference varied from one source to the next so I do what I typically do when presented with a character with multiple design variations. Mix mash my favorite elements of each. And here she be! My only tiff is with the gun shes holding vertical, I believe I botched the angle of it on that one it'd be an all over fully satisfying picture if I had the bottom of the gun facing where shes looking not that weird angle its at now. My goof. But I think ti still works so I'm not fussing too much about it and the customer loves it. I did my job and more :) Fun stuff.

Fun stuff!

Another EWG Live Wed Wrapped - 25 Eternals Tall

Click To Enlarge. The finished lineart, except for two characters this was all inked between 8pm and 10pm

Click To Enlarge. Additional touchup inks and spot blacks/ shades were added in from 10pm till 1230am

Great session tonight, Livestream vid below. I originaly was just broadcasting to broadcast, save a little memory and processing by not recording. but towards 90% complete with the lineart, a viewer mentioned they'll catch the recording later, and it occured to me this is a pretty significant work not to document it along the way. got the pencils step, and the lineart inks were mostly done unrecorded but got some of them and the black fills. Comin out awesome. I couldnt be happier and hope the clients are too! Viewers/ Clients involved in tonight's Livestream or this piece please feel free to provide feedback on this work in progress in the comments below!

Thanks again and can't wait to get this all inked colored up, all though i'll admit i'm loathing the flats. They're tedious on a one character much less this LOL. But it'll look amazing when done.

Heres the Livestream video. Thanks to all who came out to tonights 'EWG Live Wed' session. Was a great one. Really had fun. See you next time!

EWG Wants You

July 3, 2013

Heres Eryck Webb Graphics' 'EWG dEWd' wish you and yours a happy and safe 4th of July full of fun, sun and lots of fireworks! EWG studio will be closed as of now (3pmEST June 3rd 2013) till Monday the 9th when business will resume as normal. Have a great holiday and see you after some much needed time off! Will be floatin in the Monongahela River, eattin ribs and sippin beer for 4 days straight. Will be nowhere near a computer! Lol. But will bring my sketchbook just incase somethin strikes me. See you after the weekend!

This is what I do

I liked this excerpt from a PVP news post, couldn't link straight to the article though unfortunatly.

"Have I finally bitten off more than I can chew? Am I spreading myself way too thin? The answer, simply is yes. And I don't really care. I mean, this is what I do. I create things. And the things I create get exponentially better when I'm under an incredible amount of pressure when I create them. Go figure. 
Sometimes I stop and think about all stars that had to align for me to be born at the place and time where people can actually earn moeny from creating things and it makes me worry about how long this window is going to stay open. It makes it hard to say no to opportunities. Especially when all I have to do is work a little harder."

Pulled from a PVP news post found at the webcomic site here: - I thought Scott Kurtz was right on the money with how I feel about what I do sometimes. Good stuff.

EWG Live Wed on a Tues - Super Heros and Bats and Wonders and Cobras Oh My!

First piece I did starting at 730pm and wrapping up by 1015pm
For some darn reason that happens sometimes Livestream didn't compile/ save the video so don't have that. But was fun to work on and glad the customer was able to come out watch it happen!

Did this one and the wonderwoman one below together on the same canvas, two DC women as cobra recruits kinda fun playing with the design on them. Had particular fun listening to some Deadmau5 Live concert while working on them. Went from about 1030 to 1230 for these two.

She came out a little more 'native american' but was going for amazon warrior full bore kinda thing. Diggin it. And happy to say the Livestream for Part DUECE of tonights 'EWG Live Wed' recorded perfectly and is below. Moved the Wed Livestream to Tues as will be out of town for the 4th holiday. Got a few things or at least one to try and get wrapped up tomorrow before taking off for the much needed vacay. See you next Wed for the next 'EWG Live' and thanks for checking all this out! 

EWG Release - Weekly Stream, Tees, Cameos and Fireworks Oh My!

July 2, 2013

A couple releases/ announcements concerning the state of affairs with the weekly Livestream this week and some state o' the business with EWG.

First off Livestream, will be moving Wed Livestream to Tuesday night as Wed night will conflict with the holiday too much so will be doing work tonight Live. What will be displayed remains tentative, most likely be a demo of production on a must-complete comic page I need to get inked/ colored. Starts at 8pmEST till probably Midnight per usual. If not that, then some single character commissions I owe people! Work on that 25 character behemoth will resume and wrap up after the holiday.

In other news, EWG is proud to be officially working with on an exciting project involving some tshirt art commissions under their Hasbro license. They approached EWG seeking some exciting new art for a new shirt printing process they're working with and EWG is more than happy to step up to the plate and help it be nothing but a success. Awesome pop-culture merchandise and EWG artwork pairing up? Almost bound to happen sooner or later! Surely only epic things can come of this! Look forward to working with them on many great projects.

To help elevate the profile of Ungrounded a bit Patrick Gerard and I are working on a possible cameo by a fun pop-rock group in the midst of the Ungrounded story and get it a little more exposure. Keeping a lid on it now, but excited to hopefuly have them on board soon!

So in recap, Livestream will be 8pm-12pmEST tonight featuring (well you'll just have to wait and see) a EWG commission production of one kind or another, some great tunes and chat time where I'm always happy to discuss process, business or anything geeky or otherwise. EWG is teaming up with to do some Hasbro licensed epicness and heres hoping to get some more publicity for Ungrounded with the help of a very cool band. Also in closing EWG will be out of the studio as of Wed Evening till Monday after the 8th when business resumes per normal. Time for a much needed vacation! No computers, no arts. Just beer, floatin in a river and hopefuly some good food somewhere in there with the wifey who is now done with all her cancer treatments and deserves to party and sip on one or two of her favorite well earned malt beverages ( sour apple smirnoff mmm). See you tonight and have a great 4th of july holiday!

Female Head Style Warmup Sketches + Sketch

Today's Warmup Sketch I just did for bout a half hour was this exercise featuring one drawn female face and then duplicated it four times and took the challenge of rendering four different head styles.

Hydration for Creativity And More

July 1, 2013

I've found that through my work day and work week if I don't have enough water, or am the slightest bit dehydrated, coffee does nothing, and overall motivation and energy and creativity plummet. This prompted me to do a search for some interesting facts about the importance of drinking plenty of water. Number 4 definitley is in my ballfield. How does Hydration effect you in your daily life?

1) Drinking Water Keeps You Young

Drinking plenty of water is great for your skin. If you don't drink enough water, you'll suffer from dry skin, and you'll be likely to use more creams and lotions to moisturize. However, creams and lotions don't strike at the root of the problem. Drinking plenty of water keeps your skin moisturized and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

If you don't drink enough water, your body will try to retain it in order to conserve resources. This retention makes your skin puffy and can even lead to bloating.

2) Drinking Water Helps You Lose Weight

There's a reason why most diets and fitness programs ask you to drink a lot of water. One of the benefits of drinking water is that it helps you lose weight.

Water suppresses your appetite, so you don't eat as much. Drinking plenty of water also prevents fluid retention, because your body won't try to retain water if it's getting enough.

Drinking water also helps your body burn stored fat. If you're not drinking enough water, your liver will be forced to help your kidneys detoxify your body. When you drink plenty of water, your kidneys don't need any extra help, so your liver will be able to metabolize stored fat more efficiently. Drinking water flushes toxins from your body and prevents constipation.

3) Drinking Water Helps You Build Muscle

Another benefit of drinking water is that it makes your muscles stronger. That's because water carries oxygen to the cells of your body, including those of your muscles. Drinking plenty of water enables your muscles to work harder and longer before they feel tired, and this can help you build muscle.

4) Drinking Water Makes You Smarter

Drinking water can increase your cognitive function. Your brain needs a lot of oxygen in order to function at optimum levels. Drinking plenty of water ensures that your brain gets all the oxygen it needs. Drinking eight to ten cups of water per day can improve your levels of cognitive performance by as much as 30%!

Drinking plenty of water also supports nerve function. It ensures that your body's electrolyte levels remain high enough to allow your nerves to relay messages to and from the brain in the way they were meant to.

5) Drinking Water Is Good for Your Joints

One of the lesser known benefits of drinking water is that it helps keep your joints strong, healthy and lubricated. Your joints need moisture in order to remain strong and flexible, so that your movements are smooth and pain free.
