Bamboo Smart Super Gremlin Warmup

December 30, 2015 0 Comments

#gremlin #warmup #wacombamboo #bamboo #samsunggalaxy #stylus #digitalart

This is a sketchbook post, and sort of a 'first use' review. Got a Bamboo Smart stylus for christmas to use with my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 tablet. Gotta say its a great upgrade. Feels natural in the hand, and is way more responsive than the s pen with pressure and glides on the screen more confidently for smoother lines, less 'slippery wiggle' from the smooth screen. I can't wait to get more practice in with it, and am excited to use it for some serious commission penciling and inking projects soon! I recommend it as an upgrade to the Spen. Only draw back I see at this point is the pen doesn't fit in the spen slot so it always remains seperate. Also, and this is without investigating if theres software on the wacom site or not, but the button on the pen seems to have the potential to be programmed but theres no way obvious to do so. Something to look into later. But heres my first official warm up sketch with it. Look forward to more! 

Here it is:

Works great straight out of the box on any spen-equipped device and is a clear upgrade in ease of use and responsiveness.

#lemmykilmister #motorhead #lemmy #sketch #warmup #tribute

Motorhead, Lemmy - synonymous with no bs, no frills - straight tequila or rum or whiskey with no juice or anything mixed in, straight black coffee no chaser rock and roll. Been listening to 'Deaf Forever' all morning since I woke up and saw 'RIP Lemmy' all over facebook. To me, I feel like he was one of those rock anchors, always back there always doing his thing. And he did, rocked till the day he died. We should all be so lucky :)

New Improved EWG Website

December 29, 2015 0 Comments


Well, it still needs some more work, but that will be done another time. For now, I'm happy with how it is, so here it is, the new EWG site. Some navigational enhancements, added features for customers and better organized http://www.eryckwebbgraphics.com/ - the blog, comics and such are all secondary the commissions are front and foremost as they should be. Still room for improvement but I'm satisfied with it for now. Tomorrow I get back to drawing. This week's goal, knockout all the backlog of special orders and anything left over from fall.
Then next week, get wrapping up Ungrounded First Revolution and more.
Let me know what you think of the improvements, and any ideas you wish to offer on future improvements. Also, if there are any broken links or issues.
Goodnight. The mill turns on and production resumes tomorrow!

#tuneup #smb #reorganize #rework #refine #streamline

EWG is busy retoolin' the ol toolbox all week getting ready for 2016. Commission production returns to its regularly scheduled program then! No orders are forgotten, there are no cracks to slip through. Theres been some ideas/ and needs around this business that have needed to be implemented so this is the time/ week to do it. Simple as that. I believe the improvements will help clients have a better experience with their commission orders, and also stream line things on my end as well. New year, new trends in customer's creative needs, and a new approach to knockin it out epicly. Thanks for understanding, hit the ground running in the new year! During this time the site is officialy under construction don't be surprised if links dont work or the site looks different at any given time. Gettin back to basics, to the roots of it all. Moving forward to that ideal of what Eryck Webb Graphics can/ should be.

See you on the other side.

Morning Warmup Sketch - Little Fella

#characterdesign #warmup #sketch #drawing #doodle #little #fellow #beanie #raincoat

This morning's warmup. Got a sweet new chair as an early Christmas present and its so much better on my hind end and legs but was a little too high for my hands/ arms so they weren't really supported and started falling asleep while i was working yesterday. Well today I raised up my desk with some half inch boards underneath and now its just right. So trying it out and warming up before today's work load I drew this in Sketchbook Pro. I did a quick doodle, and a general character design occurred to me so I tried to explore it see where it led. Kinda like this little guy. Don't know if I'll do anything with him, but theres a lot of potential. Would make a good anime or video game character maybe. Alright, onto finish up left over chibis and character arts from the past week or two. 
As always accepting orders and lining up work for the week after Christmas. Also hit a road block on my comic work but going to regroup and hit it hard after the Christmas weekend. 
How many folks are out already for Christmas? How many are working up until the eve. I thought about doing like the ol' days working till noon Christmas eve then heading off to celebrate with the family till the day after Christmas. We'll see if that happens. Excited my mom, dad and sister who i haven't really seen since last Christmas are coming in. If I can survive the stress and chaos I think it'll be a great Christmas. 

Alright Happy Holidays to everyone out there and I will be streaming orders for folks off and on for the next two days as I try to finish up some orders for folks. Mainly those who I know would prefer to see it streamed. Internet allowing of course. Never know with this flaky comcast service.

Time to rock n' roll! When I stream it'll be on Picarto https://picarto.tv/eryckwebbgraphics - so be sure to follow that page it'll notify you when it goes live. 

Alright, knock out this last couple days before Christmas! 

Another Light Is A Wrap! A Few Favorite Panels

December 18, 2015 0 Comments

 



#transformers #anotherlight #shatteredglass #hasbro #funpublications #comic

Got my copy of the final chapter of Transformers: Another Light, the story arc i've been working on for the last year for hasbro/ fun publications - the final product is epic! Readers got their copies before I did so I assume its safe to post these haha. Evan did an amazing job on the colors bringing my inks to life and the whole thing wrapped up pretty epicly. Had fun working on this project and hope to work with all involved again soon! That does it for me for this week. Pushed way too hard this week, with back-firing results. Still trying to figure out this balance/ work flow thing. Hard to keep it consistant when life changes the rules every day. Ah well, every day is a new chance to improve that high score. Pick it up Monday - have a great weekend!

Live Sketch Night - Holiday Edition 2 of 2 is mostly complete

0 Comments




So, I don't know if I hurt myself or helped myself changing the work flow to trying to pencil all 6 then ink all six then color 5 of the colored orders. But I think it definitely resulted in some really cool drawings concentrating on just sketching them out first and then doing the inking/ coloring after. On the other hand I spent all night sketching them and then inking them and didnt even get to the black fills or colors lol. Well, I can honestly say the Live Sketch Night holiday edition has been a success, got about 4-5 orders Tuesday and about 6 tonight. I do believe folks enjoyed comin out taking advantage of the special holiday prices and such. The chat was bustling and the requests were all really cool. I'm just sorry to make people sit in there 4 hours and I didnt get one piece 100% done. After some consideration I will finish these up Monday evening on 3rd livestream that will serve just to allow these customers to come back out and see it happen like they were doing tonight. Only pushing it to then cause tomorrow I got things to get out before I head out of town for the weekend.

Alright, thanks to everyone who made this double-up live sketch night event a success and get you your orders very soon!

EWG Itinerary Till Christmas

#itinerary #schedule #production #mill #orders #commissions #art #drawing

In a continuing effort for transparency, I thought I'd share the final schedule/ production layout till Christmas. Of course you can check your particular invoice on the Order Tracking page which is currently updated about 3 times a week. But here we are, and here I go to knock em out! 

Looking forward to the last Live Sketch Night of 2015 tonight at 8pmEST! In honor of Christmas and all the other holidays folks celebrate, I'm offering $12 Black and white art (chibi or normal) which is usually closer to $32.00 and $25.00 colored chibi or normal which is usually closer to $48.00. There were two orders I did not get to on Tuesday's 1st installment, so on this second and final installment I'll be starting on them while waiting for further orders. Playing some jazzy/ electronica Christmas music that's a bit more refreshing than the standard 12 same Christmas songs. And more! So see folks out there on Picarto tonight. 

Alright, time to get to it! Here's to kickin some ass on the road to Christmas which I'm taking off Christmas Eve through the 27th.

Morning Warmup - Hulk

0 Comments

#hulk #incrediblehulk #sasquatch #yeti #warmup #sketch #inkscape

Gettin back in the habit of doing morning warmups to get the ol' creativity flowing each morning. And might try to do a theme each week for the fun of it. This week's theme is my own original take on my favorite mainstream characters. Just 'what if' tweaks and whatever original ideas I might have on ways their design/ creation could have gone. I thought, instead of looking like a big green guy, what if hulk took more of a big mean gorilla/ primate direction to his transformation. Kinda like how everyone imagines dr jekyl/ mr hyde. Anyways, I thought that would be cool, and work well with his whole more primitive way of acting and all that. Alright, stay tuned all week long will try out different characters its a fun exercise and definitely gets the ol' mind and hand going in the right direction. Find more sketches like this in the art gallery on this site!
Have a great Monday and week!

EWG's 6th Year Anniversary

December 10, 2015 0 Comments


#anniversary #cake #business #smb #sixyears #commemorative

On December 11, 2009, Eryck Webb Graphics stumbled onto the scene, offering original artwork and commissioned art services to the public. Now having wrapped up its 6th year in business, EWG looks onward to year seven and the potential that it holds. The majority of orders this past year, shifted between logo design and comic production, with character art as always filling in the gaps. 2014-2015 saw EWG change locations, explore traditional art, and a refinement in approach to business as well as work flow. The sixth year ends leaving EWG with a bigger appreciation for the ongoing projects and return clients that it has the pleasure of working for.


2014-2015 Highlights:

· TnC Comics first year collection book and kickstarter was successfully completed.
· Finished a 40 page run on Hasbro/Fun Publication's Transformers Collectors Club magazine comic story 'Another Light'.
· Moved into a new house which features a dedicated studio to run EWG out of.
· Ultimate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had its first successful IndieGoGo campaign, and a print run collecting the 40+ page first issue.
· Ungrounded: First Revolution kickstarter was successful and EWG currently wrapping up last of the pages it is responsible for in the sequel project.
· A limited Holiday Card commission was offered for the first time, and was a moderate success.
· With a dedicated studio, which includes a traditional art space, EWG was able to re-approach selling traditional artworks in the EWG Shop which hasn't really been done since 2010-2011 on eBay.

To celebrate this anniversary, EWG offered a special gift to the clients and fans that have gotten us this far. Hidden around the site from around 1030pm 12/10 till midnight 12/11 were six candles that look exactly like the ones in the cake pictured above. Each worth 6% discount on any future invoiced commission. For every one an individual found adn emailed a screenshot of that person would have been rewarded 6% discount x however many they found, up to six. The discount is recorded in our records and available for one use on a future commission until the end of 2016. This special event has ended.

We'd like to take this occasion, to officially announce a new release coming in 2016! EWG is proud to introduce the first volume of a new book series called 'Doodles'. This is in its final design stages now, and will be available following the first of the year. Half sketchbook, half annual chronicle, this will encompass all personal artworks, daily warm-ups and practice drawings from December 2014 until December 2015 in one collected book. It will be available in print and for an additional fee can also have a personalized sketch and signature added to it. If there is enough interest this series will continue at the end of each year collecting that year's non-client artworks.

There are also many other plans for 2016. Live sketch commission events on live stream. Run Of The Mill collected book. The return of Jumping Boy webcomic. EWG will also be exploring selling original print artwork as well with intended release of a new one once a quarter.

They say 90% of businesses fail within the first 5 years, but here's looking ahead to year 7 and all that it has to offer. Thank you for sticking with us along the way!

Star Wars The Old Republic OCs - Commission Process

0 Comments

#starwars #battlefront #oldrepublic #stwor #sketch #artistblock
Here is the full walkthrough of this Star Wars Old Republic piece featuring the commission client's original characters they play with in game. Enjoy!


First sketch layout attempt - just could not get it flowing right
Sketch rework two, playing with a slightly different composition

Sketch rework three, trying to make it a more dynamic angle then the previous two which were more straight on
Finaly with with that last sketch and finished the pencils. Still, several areas which were mis proportioned or too stiff were fixed yet again in the inking stage.



Finished inks, with several things like the robots pisto arm and the supporting arm on the girl proportions adjusted as well as the guys bent leg.

Underlying flats, keeping the color palette limited to the same dark grey/ light gray and dark red throughout as a scheme.

The finished piece with all shades, higlights and effects. 

I really struggled with the composition and pencils on this piece, all while determined to not let more than the one sniper gun barrel go off canvas. Relying on some perspective and foreshortening to keep the other two characters barrels in frame. Despite the difficulties of the initial sketch, and hitting a creative wall on this short-deadline piece, I think it ended up a really good finished artwork.

Warmup this afternoon before some more client work. Hope everyones having a great Wednesday! I'm dragging in general for some reason... but working through it! 

Santa Imp - Warmup Sketch

December 7, 2015 0 Comments

#christmas #santa #gifts #holiday #imp #sketchbookpro #drawing

Warmup today of some impish Santa shenanigans. About 15-20 minutes in Sketchbook Pro (autodesk) to get back into the swing of things. Hope everyone is having a great start to the week! 

EWG is now in a mad rush to clear out the backed up Queue and stay ontop of deadlines. As of now no orders are guaranteed by Christmas and just making and effort to get caught up to a month or two backlog. However as always, Eryck Webb Graphics is accepting commissions and booking for 2-3 weeks from now on character art, comics and graphic design. Will also open slots when it makes sense to do so. 

Personal projects like Run of the mill and such will be touch and go this month while work and holiday distractions take up the majority of the time. 

December 11th will mark the 6th anniversary of EWG in business so look for a special post and other things to be related to that. Then its the straight away to christmas and new years. This year has been a great one and really feels like we're heading into the capstone of the year and getting ready for a new one to begin. 

Heres to it, and lots of work ahead! Time to knock it out! Go go go!

EWG Black Friday - Till Nov 30th

November 25, 2015 0 Comments

#blackfriday #smallbizsat #shopsmall #thanksgiving #cybermonday

EWG is getting in on the action! But unlike all these corporate moguls out there abusing Black Friday all month long, EWG is sticking to tradition like the art wielding pilgrims of old. From when this posts, till end of business day November 30th, any commission order received will automatically qualify for 35% off its total price and be waived of additional paypal fees. 

Step 1 - Check the EWG pricelist here for your prefered item: http://www.eryckwebbgraphics.com/p/commission-pricelist.html

Step 2 - Email eryck@eryckwebbgraphics.com with your image reference and request! 
Invoices will mostly be handled Monday Nov 30th. Will process a couple when/ if able between now and then. Any orders sitting in EWG's inbox when I get back from Thanksgiving (Nov 25th-Nov30th) will be eligible! Only orders received within this time frame will be accepted. All others subject to normal prices listed on Pricelist page.

Step 3 - Get your awesome EWG art for 35% less in a couple weeks!

Bonus! - Traditional Art is 35% off as well. 
Browse the available pieces here: http://www.eryckwebbgraphics.com/p/ewg-shop.html
Then email eryck@eryckwebbgraphics.com within the sale timeframe requesting which item(s) you wish to buy. Do not use the cart if you want the 35% discount. You must email me to get the discount. I will then invoice you for the total of the one or several pieces including the discount rate when I return after the weekend. Traditional pieces can be bought together to save shipping. Just a flat $6.00 will be added for shipping. This is for two week shipping. Each mailed order will be in a flat stiff cardboard envelope mailer.

Some Notes:
- Must wait for invoice before sending Paypal as I will factor in the discount.
- Multiple items are encouraged. 35% gets bigger and bigger the more quantity. This is just a fact.
-Turnaround is still the standard 3-4 weeks. Can not guarantee everyone's order in time for Christmas, sorry. But will do them as quickly as I can.
- Will be attempting to wrap up these orders by mid December though.

Happy Thanksgiving
Enjoy this sale!



Livestream Character Arts

#commission #inkscape #photoshop #art

Just a slew of what I got done on livestream tonight between 730pm and 1230am. Inked the majority of the two girls piece, and all of the smoking gun guy. The other two colored single characters I inked/ colored tonight. And the chun li lounging reading in her chair I drew/ inked tonight. Out of steam though going to finish the chun-li lounging on the chair tomorrow morning before finishing a batch of TnC strips and then heading out for Thanksgiving. 
The dogs are off to their sitters and the wife and I will be heading north to have Thanksgiving at her sister's. Pray for light traffic, no accidents and light weather! 
This break is much needed. I've been pushing too hard lately creatively/ labor-wise. I tried my best to juggle everything and have it all done by Wednesday but its just not going to happen. Got a heck of a lot done though. Will get right back on it come Monday. Have a great Thanksgiving and weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving 2015

November 23, 2015 0 Comments


The Natives Are Restless....
Every year in November, a new artwork is forged to celebrate the coming Thanksgiving, and is a tribute to a life long fandom of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This annual piece reflects a capstone on that year's artwork. Each year's installment represents the evolution in workflow and artistic skill that Eryck Webb and EWG as a business, has under gone.

Each year the theme remains the same, the Thanksgiving Marauding Ninja Turkeys at odds with those feasting pilgrims! This year, like every other, sees little tweaks in character design and style reflecting this year's preferences.

Happy Thanksgiving! 
Enjoy That Turkey! ...If You Can Defeat One!
