#webcomic #comics #kiosk #gmunny #warmup
This morning's warmup continues the 'FanArt of Other's OCs' theme - picked a character this morning from Geoff Munn's 'Kiosk: Life In Neutral' - something about the character Chuck just said 'ddood.... draw me.' So I did. Pulled out my Jay/Silent Bob and my Big Lebowski vibe for this one!
Fun stuff - stay tuned will be doing this probably through next week as theres too many friend's characters I want to do to narrow down to one week.
And if Geoff likes this sketch wants a copy, just email me at eryckwebb3@yahoo.com I'll toss it over bud!

Warmup - Plastic Robot


#warmup #sketch #comics #drawing
This week, I'm using the theme 'other's OCs' for my warmups. Each morning, my 15-30 min warmup sketches will be focused on other folks I have the pleasure of meeting across these interwebs. But more specificly, their original characters. This will allow me to do some fanart of other folks' creations when i otherwise might not have time or a chance. Today kicking it off is along overdue art of 'Plastic Robot', created/owned by David Mcdonald over at - http://plastic-robot-comic.deviantart.com/ - very cool character hope I did him some justice! David, email me at eryckwebb3@yahoo.com and I'll toss you a copy of this - no charge!
Onto the work day! Stay tuned to this site and the sketchbook section of the art gallery page for more installments. Who will I do fan arts of next? Stay tuned!

New EWG Business Cards by Vista Print

July 26, 2014 0 Comments

@vistaprint +Vistaprint #vistaprint #businesscards #smallbusiness #smb #branding #logo #contacts
Vistaprint did an amazing job printing these matte finish cards front and back, they're trimmed exactly how I wanted them and the colors are rich and true. 
This is a new batch of Business cards with branding to match the current design of the websites, my t-shirt I'm going to be wearing to Steel City Con and more. The four colors of EWG - Orange, White, Gray, Black - displaying the brand and what it does on the front including how to get in-touch, and on the back a full bleed example of my work borrowing a cropping from my 25 character commission from last year. 
These will be great to toss in with mailings, hand to potential customers in public and share with folks who want to know what I do. Thanks Vistaprint!

EWG Pricelist Is Once Again Live

July 25, 2014 0 Comments

Thanks for your patience as the pricelist on the EWG website has been down and in the process of being redesigned for a couple months. With the upcoming Steel City Con attendance and many inquiries from customers who had trouble finding the price list page, I decided it was time to get that finished up and posted. Well the page has gone live again and I believe its easier to read, understand and find just what your wanting to commission EWG for than ever.
So check it out, email for custom quotes and questions and remember, EWG is always available to help with your creative needs! Updates and modifications will surely be revised later but for now - its live and ready to use!


TnC Turns 1 Year Old


TnC celebrates 1 year of web-comic awesomeness! This week's anniversary edition of TnC is a special double sized strip! This week's episode continues the tradition of the same TnC humor readers know and love and also takes time to bow to influences both in other comic series and in pop culture.

Thank you to the fans and readers who have responded to the series with such positive support. For the last year it has been very well received, and the support continues to grow! Your support leads to greater inspiration and motivation in Cory's scripts and encourages me to push the art to be the best it can be week after week. Every week, your likes and shares help the exposure of the webcomic and shows us that you like what we're doing! Please continue to share, like and read the strip and let us know you are enjoying it for the weeks to come!

Got new shirt in the mail today - Zazzle.com did an amazing job. The colors are exactly what I wanted, the orange is bright and rich the grays nice and solid. The whites bright white. The shirt fits great too and I will be wearing this bad boy both days I'm going to Steel City Con. Toting business cards and a portfolio of EWG's best works! Eryck gives the ol' thumbs up to this fine shirt printing!
Thank you Zazzle - very quick delivery too! (About one week from ordering)

Though other vendors may be cheaper, I needed a larger size than most places and Zazzle is very accommodating! Can't recommend enough.

Chinook Girl - Semi-Fin Pencils


#pinup #noseart #worldwar2 #chinook #pilot #army
Semi-Finished pencils of 'Chinook Girl' - inspired by classic WW2 pinup / nose art. She loves her job, she loves those CH-47s and is enjoying a nice fly over while cooling off after a long flight.
Incoporated as many elements that seem to be part of a chinook pilot's garb and also most importantly, chinooks throughout! 

For one of the two 400 Likes winners over on EWG Facebook! Get the second one penciled tomorrow nad if this one is approved finish it up next week!

Tutorial Tuesday: Mark Brooks comic page digital pencils and inks


Always inspired by watching Mark Brooks work digitaly on his art. From his awesome detailed pencil work to his dynamic figures and then his inks. Takes him about 9 hours to do a page like this below. The video is only about 6 minutes. The results are awesome, and goes to show what quality you can get out of a page that takes 8-9 hours. I try to keep mine under a much tighter timeframe for budget/ deadline purposes but many of my best pages took a good 4 hours to completely fininshed pencil and then 2-3 to ink and another 2 or 3 for full colors so I can understand what goes into this stuff. Anyways, I generaly have a theme to post one thing each week. Mondays are for Ultimate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles webcomic updates, Tuesdays are 'tutorial tuesdays' wednesdays are my Webcomic Wednesdays, thursdays are throw backs, and glances at where I was in the past or case studies from jobs past, and friday is devoted to posting TnC comics promotions! Enjoy today's 'tutorial tuesday' installment, and enjoy many more over in the 'Reference' section of this website!

Enjoy studying this page that essentialy uses my exact same process of layouts, pencils as tight as I want to go then inks overtop for a finished piece. Under the hands of another pro on a whole 'nother level!

July 17, 2014 0 Comments

Its official, Eryck Webb Graphics will be in attendance to this summer's Steel City Con! The 3 day passes have been bought, confirmed and framed and hung. Look forward to checking it out. Will have new EWG biz cards, and a portfolio of my best work should there be opportunities to share it with folks.  Just walking around not getting a table or anything this year. Scoping it out as it were.

Will serve as research and creative fuel consuming all day Friday and go back to meet some of the celebrity guests on Sat. Taking the wife and her momma Sat to meet Dean Cain - I'd like to meet Levar Burton and Mini Me myself.

Supposed to be an insane amount of toys and collectibles at this show so looking forward to it.
Getting my feet wet, maybe next year setup a table do commissions.

See you soon Steel City Con!


Back in Black - The Power Is At 11

July 15, 2014 0 Comments

#comics #commissions #webcomics #digitalart #power
Eryck Webb Graphics is officially 100% back online! The power at home where I worked usually became about 75% capacity due to some pole/ line damage one evening probably a month or two ago. We got to the place where we were able to call the power company. They couldn't fix it, an electrician had to do it and then an inspector had to put their approval on it and slap a sticker on the box. But the power company dude HAD to disconnect the power 100% at the street cause it was a hazard (even though we spent a month living that way...) so, suddenly we didn't have power. The father in law did his best to get the parts fixed and replaced and I helped him far as I could. Took 3 weeks of living with no power and having a gas generator for occasional utility needs to get it fixed. Granted, about once a week we thought it was good, the inspector came out, needed something changed. So then finally week two had an electrician come out take over. Still didn't pass till week 3. Then the power company took as long as they possibly could to get out and turn on the power. All the while I was working offsite at a friend's house for which I am my clients (I'm sure) are very grateful, allowed me to keep up for the most part and overall work like normal give or take some differences.

It took me longer to get up and out of the house, so I started way later, and then most of the time I tried to come home and use the gas grill to cook food and etc for everyone so I quit at 5 or 6 to do that. This is all fine but my job tends to demand evenings more often than not. So I was working 6-7 hour days 5 days a week. No computer on the weekends, trying my best to respect the friends time home by not being there after they got home from work longer than I needed to be and taking off the weekends).

This inevitably cut into my web comic work 'Jumping Boy' and as well as other time on projects that just don't fit into a 9 to 5 very nicely.

Very very appreciative of the friends for allowing me an auxiliary work location and very very happy to be back at the ol' normal desk with power restored, and the chair/ desk I'm most comfortable in for the last year or two. I even took the opportunity to improve the overall setup, with my computer down beside my desk so it frees up clutter on the desktop, and got my trusty Howard The Duck original art that used to hang in my dad's home office growing up, and its hanging above my work area now.

My first official drawing being back is at the top of this post. I nicknamed my computer 'Black Betty' - like the Nazareth song, cause... well its black, and its a high performance get up and go little hot rod of a computer. Hence... the full speed burn in the picture above. Lol.... I dunno, was sketching for a warmup and just went with some 'whatever i want' ideas and that came out. Speeding across some desert crankin out the artz full blast!

SO, what does all this mean? It means getting caught up and ahead on work load, it means hanging out on Horseshoes and Handgrenades again, it means web comic return and it means evening work which can occasionally (and in most cases) turn into Livestreams.

Thanks for all the clients and fans patience with the limitations and missteps in the last 3 weeks, but barring any unforeseen new problems, I believe that EWG can honestly state that it is up to 100% capacity once again finally!
