Black Widow Cobra Agent - Full Color over Inks Commission

March 27, 2014

Title says it all, a finished full color commission with finished inks of Black Widow from marvels avengers (more comic/ animated style than movie) if she joined the cobra ranks. Always love doing these one-off cobra designs. My attempt is always to stay true to the original character but with some cobra embellishment!

This by the way is a great example of the style your getting for the SPRING SPECIAL going on now! You will get one character, no background (will do a silhouette of some mountains or city or general environment something that only takes 3-5 min though if it makes sense to) fully drawn/ inked and then colored! 8.5x13 inches (easily blows up to 11x17 comic page size) 300dpi! And only the client gets the hires file for their collection!

Penciled in photoshop, inked in Inkscape then colored back in photoshop! Was a fun one! Might post process steps at another date! Would this interest anybody?

Jangala and Canopy - FC over Pencils Character Art Commission

Finished full color over tight pencils commission for DWald of his original characters Jangala and her sidekick/ partner Canopy - patroling the jungles for any lowlifes! The female batman and robin of Monster Island! This was a challenging one but none the less a fun one and really ahd fun with the jungle theme of it. Had tribal metal music playing all throughout working on it getting it finished today. Onto the next!

Done 100% in photoshop with wacom intuos 2, brush tool set to mimic pencil textures/ strokes and then full color overtop that.

Some process:

Rough sketch/ layout

EWG Dood at Color Me Mine

March 26, 2014

Had a real nice day out with the wife for her birthday. Our second to last stop on the outting was at Color Me Mine - a nifty lil' business in Pittsburgh where you can pickout a blank piece of pottery or figurine and then paint it and they glaze to give it to you in a week or so. Well, I saw this little dood and thought to try and turn him into the EryckWebbGraphics mascot 'Dewd'. So EWGDewd representing!! Or my best attempt at it also working with the pre-sculpted hair. Would have looked spot on if it had been a plain smooth head. I think it would do them some good to have an option to grind down unwanted details of the piece before painting or offer more in the style of blankies that are basicaly the form and head and shape without pre-defininng specific clothing or hair types. If it was a bald head a painter could put on any kind of hair they want etc. 
Anywho! lots of fun. One thing I always want to do more of is artsy moments with the wifey and this was nice! Will see how it looks in a week when it gets picked up!

Happy Birthday Kristina

March 25, 2014

Happy Birthday to my love, my friend, my inspiration, my motivation and my sidekick in this adventure called life. Love you Kristina, bestest wifey evur!
Will be taking most of the day off to spend with my wife for her birthday but will be working extra hard the rest of the week to stay on schedule on folks orders!
Fun warmup this morning. About an hour.

Thor - Sketch Dailies - 15 Min Warmup

#thor for #sketch_dailies @sketch_dailies as a warmup this morning - combined the looks of the comic and the movie universes thors and put my own spin on it. 15 minute gestural sketch. This is typicaly what any of my commissions look like once i nail down the composition/ pose etc then would go back in do more finished articulated pencils and then inks/ cols or whatever. But theres some def energy in this loose sketches. Working a shorter day today then heading out for the weekend. 
Will have livestream on all the while since I'll be doing some character art commissions that i can show this morning. LIVESTREAM PAGE IS DOWN, so head to Picarto channel here where I'm working right now. Say hi!

Lord Javelin - Sketchbook Pro Practice

March 18, 2014

A sketch I did on my kindle fire this evening after watching the marvel preview special on CBS and then Supernatural - I've discovered smoothing down a side of the rubber on my stylus makes it glide much more like my wacom/ am used to. Also, I spent the 4 bucks from a gift card balance over at amazon and sprung for the Sketchbook PRO app. Before I had sketchbook MOBILE and then before that was the free one... sketchbook PRO is worlds of difference. 10x the pen recognition and stroke handling, responsiveness and versatilities in work interface and functionality. I finaly feel like I have something I can get some serious prelim work done. I believe it is the future of my work flow that will allow me to go work outside on nice days, and or out in the living room or when at the hospital or wherever. Fantastic. I think the next step will be to get a stylus with a firm rubber tip then I will have the ultimate control over my creating on the tablet. 
At some point in the future, I will summarize my research and trial and error in the artistic experience and stylus use with my tablet in a review. For now, still doing the research :)

Troll Doll - EWG style - Sketch Dailies Sketch

March 14, 2014

Some #troll @sketch_dailies #sketch_dailies theme art today - gotta say - loved the open ended possiblities of just the theme of 'troll'. And decided to go big f'n haired troll doll route. Have'nt thought about/ seen these in years but suddenly like 'would be fun to jam do a stylized version of one'. And my fav were always the ones with the jewel tummies. The ones without always seemed incomplete to me. 

So I've gotten all my hours that I shoot for, met my goal this week and got as much production under the belt as I'm going to get. I wanted to take today to finish up business end invoicing/ job scheduling and get next week all mapped out ready to roll so I don't have to think about it over the weekend. And so good to go. Anybody still waiting on some proofs will get them next week, count on it!

Have a great weekend, and enjoy that weather while you can! yay for above 40 all weekend!

Nerdgasms Logo and Mascot

March 13, 2014

Just wrapped up this dual commission of Nerdgasms logo revamp and mascot design. The two are made to go together but the logo is different in its own right than the mascot. no teeth no eyes and some negative space where on the mascot you see red around the face but the red brought back in with a external circle. All is done completely in vector and then I did this version for this pic you see here with some photoshop touchups. 

Fun fun to develop and work on. Had Nacho Libre on netflix in the background a bunch while working on the Bobba Fett wrestler guy :) 

Monster Pets Logo Design

Below was the rough drafts for the finished logo above! Note lots of articulation and refinement and 'exactinating' of curvs and lines and what is and isn't in the final version. Great logo to work on! Definitly a personal fav!

Heres a look at a logo design in progress, having a lot of fun with it. The colors and the articulation of the animals/ tentacles are not final, will refine them and exact-inate them upon approval. Will provide a black and white version, a flat color version, and then a full color - all the bells and whistles version similar to these draft versions here, though I think some moon texture and reptilian texture on the tentacles really faint will set it off nice. Some stone texture for the words.

Which do you like better, the more horizontal or the verticle?

HnH Live Call In - Pencils Sketch/ Mockup

Heres a rough sketch proof sent out to the kids at HnH this morning! Promotional art for their special Live Call In edition of their podcast Horseshoes and Handgrenades. If you haven't listened/ gone to see this show its a great show. They pull all of the craziest, coolest and funniest news from around the world into one digest. But mixing this all together is a hilarious onslaught of rants and commentary on the stories and the lives of the hosts as well. Not to be missed. They do a live show every Tuesday 8pm and this is for their special 'Live Call In' edition. Anywho! This isn't a case study or showing process beyond this by any menas. So sticking this in the sketch book with other incomplete or rough works both professional and personal.

EWG Gallery Of Works Is Live

March 12, 2014

Introducing the newest addition to the special Features on the Eryck Webb Graphics Website! Proud to release the official website Gallery Of Work! Importing from several different sections of the website that already exist, and organizing them as one eye-candy filled gallery! Featuring Client Commissioned works, Personal Works and Sketchbook Posts! Head over to 'Gallery Of Work' section on the new menu at right and be sure to comment on the page let me know your thoughts on ways to improve or things you like/ don't like.

The beauty of this is it showcases the top 20 of each section in one neat grid design. As new posts are added it automatically adds them and drops one on the end. This will be the location for the latest and greatest art additions to the website! This project has taken several weeks of brainstorming, research and code finagling but I'm happy to finally have it up and running! Down the line I will refine type/ color/ layout setups but for now, its good to go!

The code setup for this gallery also provides a good 'archive' setup for the web-comics on this site.

Queen Mera of the Sea

Didn't know much about her when I got this commission but really dig her look/ presence style in the images I googled. Only place I remember her from was Justice League on the episode of how Aquaman lost his hand to save their baby. She had a lot of costume variations over the years but I really dug this crown and body suit the best. I enjoyed in the inking process adding in the 'scale' pattern her outfit has.
Penciled photoshop, inked in inkscape and colored in photoshop. This is an example of a full color over inks commission with no background. I sometimes opt to show all the way down to the feet but I often like to crop at the knees to make the figure fill the canvas as much as possible. I know in this case the client likes me to do it this way in almost all the work I've done for him.

Malware/ Adware and Viruses Oh My - A Malicious Software Protection Review

Even Dr Mario had Malware!
Wanted to do a short and sweet post to put down the results of some computer maintenance I did this morning. In my efforts to get some new plugins for my Winamp lastnight I am pretty sure I downloaded some malicious tag-alongs. Well this morning there was signs they didn't exactly leave so I proceeded to do a full malicious software scan. Here I want to list my 3 Anti-Virus/ Spyware softwares that I use as a 1st, 2nd and 3rd level of defense. One is good for your very very basic measily monitoring. If somethings blatantly obvious and aka I already know about it chances are, this one will find it.

Microsoft Security Essentials - this little bundle of joy is that one. Its mostly useless. And I'll demonstrate why in the next two I go over. It sits there, happy and green in your tray, with a little check mark. And unless it's been several days of not being connected to the internet it stays that way. But if you haven't updated or haven't been on the internet in several days, it can sour to yellow with an exclamation and red with an x pretty darn quick. This tempermental little bastard also is the most unsecure real-time malicious software security I've ever seen. Everytime I suspect I have something on my computer, I do a scan and low-and-behold it says 'YOUR GOOD TO GO, NOTHING FOUND, HOORAH!' I consider this the first level of security on my ol' EWG hub here. It will find popular or obvious stuff, and once or twice it has sniffed out and quarantined a trojan or something without ever telling me.  I just happen to check the history one time and like 'oh... when did that happen? thanks for telling me?' The second level of my 'triad of malicious software protection' is next.

Malware Bytes - Simply, it's the best middle ground between the two. The freeware is constantly updated with new malicious software libraries and it does a DARN good job. I'm pretty sure it finds stuff that isn't a danger at all and gets it out too. NO TOLERANCE FOR SHIFTY FILES MAN! But in all honesty its not high-performance. It really doesn't scrutinize and go that extra mile. It's a great second level and does what I expected MSE to do. A great thing about this is after the scan it will list everything it found and actualy has an understandable description of each one. This is nice. So, can learn about these harmful files if I want but usualy 'SELECT ALL' 'REMOOOVE'. The third is the best out of all three it is relentless in digging deep into system files and grabbing that nasty tick of malicious softwareness with a tight grip on the tweezers and ripping it from my poor poor computer.

Spybot Search and Destroy - Straight up the best. Offers recovery if you got rid of something you shouldn't have, immunizes browser and key internet related files and system files, is updated daily by like dozens of independent data sources international style and is thorough, thorough, thorough. My ONLY gripe is that it takes the longest to run a scan. There's no 'quick scan' or 'full scan' there's just 'SEARCH AND DESTROY'. But I take the taking longer than other programs as, it's being damn thorough. This one will categorize as Malware, as Adware as Spyware as Trojans and has daily updated libraries. Way more often than the other two. It found stuff the other two did not!

As a final comparison and in closing, Spybot is the best, but heavy, heavy duty. If you want a quick scan, use Malware Bytes it'll find near everything, but NOT everything in my opinion. Microsofts 'Essentials' is a nice little happy green thing to have running in the tray but is super light weight. I spare it from DERESSING only because I figure it's a good first line of defense for the simple stuff and will catch real-time stuff as I browse (maybe?..didnt last night actualy). To put it another way, here is this mornings results that prompted this article and I think it'll make my point in one nice final way. First, I ran Microsoft Security Essentials: Found no threats on my computer. (Are you kidding?). Second, I ran Malware Bytes, it found 46 malicious files on my computer. All of them were listed as ads/ business/ tracking cookies etc but nothing else or bigger. Third, I ran Spyware Search and Destroy - found a TROJAN and 4 more adware/ malware files.

In closing, thank you Spyware, for getting that SOB off my computer. To the other two, work harder boys.

Purgatory Character Art and Process Video

March 11, 2014

A character art commission of Purgatori finished up!
This is a prime example of a pencil/ inks/ full color / no/simple background commission! 

Purgatori keeping more to the original design in the Chaos Comics days. 

Goes right along with that Lady Death commission I did yesterday. Really pusshing my form and rendering. Trying to make even simple poses as striking as I can. Livestream recording below!

I'm not doing evening Livestream events anymore, so when I have on the cam whilst working whether it be during the day or working late at night to keep up with the ol' demand - is only time to come out interact live with me, short of emailing or instant messaging. Since I've also decided to stick with the more professional ( and currently functional ) Livestream I can go back to posting up recorded sessions after the fact. 

An idea I'm tossing around within' the ol' braintrust is a live commission event once a month where I take commissions via paypal during a live stream session there and then. This would be an all day event like a Saturday or something like that till Midnight and would be a first come first serve. Like a convention table without the convention. So stay tuned for something along those lines soon.

Otherwise, only way to catch live real time process of EWG and interact in the chat is when EWGs working and streaming!

Below are some screenshots along the way of this piece and the full Livestream video from pencils to finish!

Medusa - Sketch Dailies - Warmup

A quick #sketch_dailies @sketch_dailies warmup of #medusa for today's sketchdailies topic. Didn't want to spend too long on it so kept it loose but liked how the face was coming out so focused on it. The brush was laying down a nice painterly texture so thought it'd benefit from some additional fungus/concrete texture. Der it be!

10 Ways To Balance Out Your Work With Life

In the world of owning, operating and juggling your own business, sometimes we forget to consider the bigger picture. If you enjoy your work, than great, its less tedious, but its still work. Life and loved ones are what matter, thats the only reason we're trying so hard to make a living right? Heres 10 thoughts to ponder on improving your overall stress levels, and balancing work and living that I found while searching around the web for inspiration/ and motivation and maybe they'll strike a chord with you too!

1. One should not want / But only seek what one needs.

2. Wait 1 hr if possible, before making a decision or reacting.

3. One can not control what others do only how One reacts to them.

4. Set goals for the day accepting fate may not allow all of them.

5. Exercise your body as well as your mind, every day.

6. Work only necessary hours then live rest of the day.

7. Do not jump to conclusions or assume - ask questions.

8. Have courage to change what one can.

9. Have serenity to accept what one can not change.

10. Have wisdom to know the difference.

Lady Death - Process Breakdown And Video

Very proud to post up this finished commission fan art of Lady Death. I stuck mostly with her rendition from the 90s in the Chaos Comics days. But I think a couple other influences, plus my own take on some of the decisions came through nicely. Loved her sword, had to put that in, and dunno if she had a cloak but I felt rounded out the medieval lady of deathing people with that wicked f'n sword kinda look. Although I will admit she looks a bit like Goblin Queen from Marvel with the gloak. Similar attire in the useful armor department. 

Tuesdays shall become 'Tutorial or Process' days where the EWG website gets a new process post - usualy one from work done either on Tuesday or Monday and shows the step by step process of EWG's commission work. Whether it be character, comic or graphic design, can study the ol' work flow here. For the lady here I recorded the session on Livestream - yes I'm back on Livestream. Missed the versatility of the recorded stream people can enjoy after the fact. 

Alright, enough! Onto the screenshots of the work along the way and then finaly at the end is the Livestream video! Enjoy! Want further details / information from me, comment on this article and I will respond as thoroughly and fully as possible :) 

The rough sketch where i got the proportions/ and everything down how i wanted it

What I called the 'finished pencil sketch' in this case. I didnt worry about clean final pencils because I was going to ink them. I did clean it up compared to the previous sketch

Inks in progress, can see differences in details and such  on the finished inks heres a detial on the face/ hand

A detial of the inks in progress on the sword hilt

Inks in progress with blacks

The lineart and black fills finished - going in on new layer adding in white details - even using the white to remove some lines etc

The finished inks with extra white details and some black details

Flat colors (inked in Inkscape before, this is flat colors in photoshop - the base color palette before shadows/ highlights

Detial of the finished art - showing some of the shadows/ highglights

The finished piece - I don't get LadyDeath as a commission often so wanted to do her justice. I really am personaly fond o' how this came out. Love the sword and her whole attitude. Was lots o' fun. Hence the playlist of Nightwish/ Lacuna Coil/ Slayer etc
