Balance In The Work Flow

September 25, 2013

Pretty full day. Worked a full day then washed the truck, helped pappa jobe with tossin roofing materials up on the garage and saw a nice sunset. Watched lots of duck dynasty and some alway sunny. had a mean toasted ham cheese and tomato sandwich for din din and got some chores done. all in all good day. though wally was a turd to me when i tried to take a nice walk through the woods with him and he ran all the way back to the house LOL. i got a free hour on my way to bed... hmm... think i'll do a lil' script writing then go to bed. be back to work 8am.

I think 8 hours working straight up, and 8 hours off is a good balance. Even steven. Perhaps? Yah. Diggin this new work flow.

Mercury - Morning Warmup

Sketching the ol' roman god himself. But hes sporting some 'tude this time around. Fun factoid, did you know that that staff is the most widely used medical symbol in the world and it has nothing to do with medicine? It is for commerce and peace and rising above conflict (the angel wings rising above two warring serpents). 

The proper symbol is a different one that is one pole with one serpent, but admittedly its not as cool looking. Perhaps the only reason they use this one. We can make up, and twist our own meanings to make the angel winged two serpent staff fit but the original meaning is not at all related LOL.

Anywho, this is also some familiarizing with the character and generally first step in some R&D and locking down a style/ attitude and idea for a new client I'll be designing some wicked not-necessarily-politically-correct long boards for.

Stay tuned.

First Day of Fall

September 22, 2013

9/22/13 - The first day of Fall. Summer is officially over and the season of colors and change rolls in. Football is on TV, nostalgic smells are in the air and the air is nice and cool. A personal work reflecting the new season!

Dangaioh - The Original

September 21, 2013

Anyone remember this classic early 90s Anime, 'Dangaioh' ? Was my first anime movie rental ever. I think before this all I was exposed to was the transformers animated movie, sailer moon and voltron LOL. This movie, was mind blowing to me. And I still look at this end battle scene and love the style. Flashy, badass. 80s/90s anime was awesome. Anywho. Dangaioh, will always be a massive influence/ inspiration. Comment below if you've seen the movie, are a fan or remember it at all. Also if your a fan of this oldschool anime style!

Tonights Livestream

September 19, 2013

[note legs, arms and body sizes that just need redrawn]

Will be Livestreaming 8pmEST tonight, featuring a new Eternals Inc group pic I've been working on. My attempts to get it done this week did not pan out so instead of 'finishes' tonight I will be going back to the drawing board literaly and redrawing many portions of it and re inking and hopefuly end up with happier customers all around. Right now as they have expressed, it 'feels rushed' and theres a lot of wonky proportions and though not my intention, feels a lot like 'time was not taken' with the piece. So, will be about a week or two till its completely done, but in take 2 of working on the piece, hope for a much better work all around, and happier customers.

See everyone tonight 8pmEST over at EWG Livestream for the live broadcast of work in progress on the piece.


Cyclopin' this morning

[Click To Enlarge]

Warmup this morning - some playin around with Xmen's Cyclops. Was pushing proportions and shapes a bit then it finaly ended up more towards normal but theres still some exageration in their and the feel of it being chiseleed out of stone or something. Also was goofing around with his eye piece. The thought was 'what if it was just a big round eye on the front of his head'. I started making it even bigger... dunno will experiment with it more another time. But I enjoyed caking on paint and chiseling it away here and there. 

All photoshop 8.5x13, about 40 minutes start to finish. 

Onto customer orders today! Todays priorities are Eternals Inc New Blood piece and a massive 80s nostalgia illustration. But the 80s piece more than the Eternals. Its time sensitive. And as much as I tried to chop away at the Eternals Inc piece and get it all lineart inked and flatted for tonights Livestream so I could finish it on the stream, I dont believe that will happen. One, I don't know what I did but many of the proportions and stuff are wierd and I have to fix those since they were the majority of the complaints, and theres other changes to be made. So that might end up taking most of the day. See the piece as it currently is below:

Not the front-most guy's leg and the small leg on the guy at right and little stuff. I mean none of it is a show stopper but I see it and the customers see it so it must be fixed.

Alright, so daz all. Thanks for reading these background notes on the cyclops sketch and overall ranting of the day :) 
Livestream tonight starts at 8pmEST! Just click the 'EWG Livestream' button on the menu at right and can see the channel now and watch live tonight!

Duck Dynasty Warmup - Phil 91713

September 17, 2013

This ones self explanatory... prob my fav character next to his brother Si, Phil ... who started the Duck Commander 'Dynasty' and coined the 'Happy Happy Happy' phrase.

Probably the wisest of the bunch.

Part of a series I plan on doing of each of the integral characters. I don't care if its 'reality' or if its 'scripted' I really truly enjoy this show. Its a good time and one of the few clean shows on TV which adds to it I believe.

8.5x13, about 30 min. My goal here was to capture the shapes and features that makes the character recognizable. The nose/ glasses the distinct beard and little other characteristics.

I think it looks like him, so I'm Happy Happy Happy

Thursday Night Livestream Release

September 16, 2013

The Weekly EWG Livestream night moves to Thursday. Mainly cause got stuff on Tues and Weds and the viewers all seem to have stuff on those days too. Thursday seems to be the overall preferred night. So Thursday Night Livestream is go!

This Thursday features the finishing of a new 15 Character commission featuring the Eternals leader Colosso and the new blood of the group, posing on the stairs, infront of their headquarters, ready to rock and roll. The art will be lineart inked and flatted by Thursday, and Thurs night will feature blackfills and shades/highlights and effects (all the fun stuff). Come see it happen live 8pmEST Thursday! Going till around midnight, but will go longer if needed.

Pre-Work Warmup - Leonardo

This morning's warmp is of the ninja turtle that got me drawing back in 3rd grade, Leonardo. Ever since I been a huge turtles fan. That was around the time I had the figures, watched the tv series like it was religion, loved the movies in theatres and traced out of a TMNT coloring book every day till i started redrawing it from memory, then started experimenting with changing that same pose i drew over and over and eventualy was free-styling it on my own. The volution that is now EWG baby!
Alright... onto lots o work work rest of the day. Have a good one!

About 40 minutes, sketched and finished in photoshop with brush tool for lines and pen tool for fill blacks and shades and brush tool with stylus opacity for the highlights and then some weathered paper texture for the finishing texture and some color balance tweaks.

September 13, 2013

This morning's warmup got taken over by Friday The 13th!
I did some research and its based around the 'unlucky number' falling on 'the unlucky day' of the week and so I then some how came to the fact Jason from the Fri 13th movie series and then 'Do You Feel Lucky-Punk? Well Do Ya?' line from Dirty Harry and ... so.

Two Chibi Livestream Recap Thurs 91213

Click to enlarge

Click to enlarge

Finished up this two chibis tonight on Livestream. The crowd was better than the official event I had lastnight (EWG Livestream Wed). Maybe I'll have to start doing the weeklys on Thursdays. And I'd be able to watch my Wed night shows. Whoddathunk? Well these were both a lot of fun. I enjoyed each for their own reasons. The one on the bottom was the first, of Jupe's OC 'Chance'. I went for a cute happy to lucky approach and wanted the whole thing to center around her staff some how. So I think its doin that. This was a bit of an unorthodox one because I didn't use very many black fills. But I dig the atmospheric colors for sure.
The one at top was the second one, took about 15 minutes longer apparently but felt like it was taking much longer. I enjoyed this one's character design had not heard of the game/ or character before. But played off the whole treasure hunter vibe at the top of some serious loot. 

Fun stuff, I even used a weathered paper texture on both to just add to their already abundant texture/ inkwash effects. Enjoy the Livestream videos below! See you next week for another stream! Have a great weekend!

Lastnight's EWG Wednesday Night Livestream was a fun one, had half a dozen viewers out or so. Thanks to those who made it out. Rocked out with a robust rock soundtrack and sketched out two End Of Summer Special orders. Will most likely do more evenings of them while I whittle down the list. 

End Of Summer Special ends Sunday (aka Saturday at midnight). Grab up some chibis or character art before the special is over. After that a retooling of the regular service price-list will take place and be the ongoing way of things once again. 

The stream went well with no complications hardware/ software or meware at anytime. Nice smooth session.

Enjoy the start to finish two-at-a-time commission session from last night on this Livestream recording, and see you next Wednesday! Also keep an eye on EWG DevianArt journal, twitter and especially EWG facebook for announcements of impromptu streams over the next couple of weeks.

TnC 09 In Progress

click to enlarge
Wanted to share a work in progress screenshot working on TnC #9 this morning - just a little channel flippin, or volume uping, or tv offing. But even the casual shots require a lil' proper execution. Attention to how fingers are on a remove and how one might prop themselves on a couch. Anywho! Getting this inked up and shooting over to cory to color/finish. Fun stuff.

If you'd like to see more 'in progress' desktop screenshots like this with other projects to study/ etc let me know by commenting below or on facebook!

This mornings 15 minute warmup featuring a fav web-slinging hero character o' mine! Just a fun bust sketch felt like maybe i channeled some CreatureBox with this one, not intending too. But thats a very cool thing cause they are a crazy good buncha doods. 

Alright... time to start work for the day! This is the last week of the End Of Summer Special, be sure to grab them up. All orders will be completed in roughly 2 weeks from point of order, but at most by early october.

Stay cool, got some muggy air from mexico comin in today. Come on Canada bail us out! Eep!
AC's on today needless to say.

Who would be up for an EWG run 'art prompt' style art jam that changes every week? An idea I throwing around. Would either post all participants here or at least link to where they post em. Could be tight. 

KungFu Cooking Girls - Animation Short

September 9, 2013

A very well done and inspiring (student film?) animation short... theres a bit' oh smexy ladyness here and there so viewer is advised. Otherwise enjoy. Popping this in the Reference' section cause its a great study on story telling, camera angles and overall inspiration!

Original link: http://youtu.be/fY9Kndy0ZMs

The Grandmaster

I saw this in a way maybe others wouldn't. It was definitely a love letter to kung fu, and though the story telling was a bit choppy, the movie opened with the most epic rain-filled kung fu showdown i've ever seen, and then played on with a wonderful contemplation on kung fu, its significance, and the role it played in this 30s-50s era. I give it 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Only because the negative points to me is were it didn't focus on IpMan entirely, and also there were hardly any wide angles and many segway scenes that just used up film time that could have been used for something else.

Regardless, the film itself, is a new, and very interesting 'poetic' kung fu movie and one to be seen if you enjoy chinese/ kung fu/ especially older-era style kung fu films. I mean come on, whens the last time a kung fu film got released in major theatres in the US, crouching tiger? flying dagger? at least this one has IpMan in it!

My final word is 'It is worth one watch to see the film. It will surprise you, it will excite you, occassionaly it will mesmerize you and at moments it will bore or confuse you. But its worth one watch. Is it worth more than that? No... its not that charming. Watch IpMan and Ipman2 for fantastic, charming and highly entertaining stories centered around the legenedary grandmaster himself'.

3.5 out of 5

The 'Review' section features articles that reviews movies, animation, games and other influences on EWG's work on a daily basis. In this case, KungFu movies are a huge influence.

Two EndOfSummerSpecial commissions I got done tonight, all though working on a much faster new graphics owning computer I felt like I was working kinda slow and not in a particular groove. I think these both pieces came out good and have some favorite bits about them but I know they took longer than they should have and just little things. Regardless I hope the customers love them and enjoy them for a long time to come I think I got a good final look for both of them.

Also note this new machine handles higher level rendering and graphics and so i'm able to set the livestream way higher quality wise than previous. making for crisper viewing and I hope those watching the videos as of 9/6 on enjoy that. Less fuzz, more fine art edges :) 

Enjoy! 2 more sale orders down 18 more to go!

Styley Spidey - Warmup 9513

September 5, 2013

Did some experimenting with today's warmup. A about an hour warmup of SpiderMan but sorta did whatever I wanted to with him... trying to push proportions, shapes, get a long spidery feel out of him. Used more geometrical shapes in making him to where the shapes of his general body parts meet up all the way to his eyes being diamonds not tear drops or anything like that. Pushed the stylization and abstraction of the shapes and form. Was a lotta fun and I think it is kinda neat. I really like the more 'sunk in' effect of the eyes, the longer fingers and even the pointed webbing pattern instead of round. Anywho... was fun. Onto client work rest of the day!

10 Mistakes Freelance Graphic Designers Make When Starting Out

This interesting article I wanted to share was found and pulled from
http://www.wahm.com/articles/10-mistakes-freelance-graphic-designers-make-when-starting-out.html I think they make a lot of great points that I deal with at EWG on a daily basis. But its nice to see a checklist sometimes to base how well your doing on. And I'd say I'm hitting the important ones. How about you? Or how do customers feel about these points? See if you are making the following 10 Freelance mistakes :) 
Making a living as a graphic designer can be a fully rewarding career for certain creative people. Just like any career though, there are problems that can be prevented for freelance graphic designers before-hand. This article is intended to give you a heads up on certain things that can make your job easier and more profitable. Here are 10 mistakes to avoid when starting out:

1. Poor Communication
Not staying in constant touch with the client is the number one mistake most graphic designers make when first starting out. Your client should be able to get in touch with you at all times; this means by e-mail, phone, pager...whatever.

2. Using Too Many Different Fonts
The old saying "KISS - Keep it simple stupid" applies to this mistake that is often made when first starting out. Using too many fonts will give your design not only an amateur's appearance, but a much cluttered piece of work.

3. Borrowing Others' Designs
This is a great big mistake and can lead to a lot of legal problems; let alone ruin your reputation. Your future as a graphic designer depends on your reputation. Under no circumstance should you steal another person's idea just because you like it; remember plagiarism is a big no-no as well.

4. Not Getting a Down Payment
Most Graphic Designers usually receive half of the agreed upon price up front. This is a fair way to do business with all of your clients.

5. Forgetting to Sign a Contract
Never start a job until you and your client have both signed a contract on what is expected of you. Whether your job is to design a logo or design a full page ad, be sure and get it in writing, and by all means include the delivery date and the price.

6. Bad Color Combo
Just because you may think that orange and green look good together doesn't mean your client will. Many newbie graphic designers make the mistake of thinking that the more colorful the graphic is, the more attention it will receive. Big Mistake!

7. Not Keeping up with Current Events
You must always keep up with the latest graphic design trends, graphic design software, etc.. The Graphic Artists Guide Handbook is also a must have for any professional graphic designer. Always be sure to keep your software up-to-date.

8. Not Setting a Deadline
Not setting a deadline and sticking to it is a common mistake that is often overlooked and should be included in the agreed upon contract. Urgency to get the job done for the client should be a number one priority.

9. Investing in Too Much Software
This is another mistake that a lot of graphic designers who are just starting out make. Sure, a new iPhone or iPad would be nice, but if it's not essential for your business, then don't buy it.

10. Not Sending the Invoice Soon Enough
Some Graphic Designers just starting out will wait too long to send the client the invoice. It's best for all involved to send the invoice as soon as the job is finished. Remember, the sooner you send out the invoice, the sooner you get paid!

End Of Summer Special - 1st up, Sirah!

September 2, 2013

[Click To Enlarge]

Here it is, the official first order received in the End of Summer Special. For HaseoBlack his OC Sirah! In this case the simple background was applicable and I was able to do as simple bar scenery without too much fuss. This is the max level people can expect of backgrounds in this special. Depending on request, a background can be simple or feature some extras whatever strikes me in a particular order and would help make the piece work better. 
Anywho! Here it be, less than 2 hours of work. And a live stream video of the piece start to finish with some current pop music hits for the soundtrack. Enjoy!
