TWITCH: The EWG Twitch Channel Is Under Construction Over The Weekend

August 17, 2019 0 Comments

#comingsoon #underconstruction #renovations #updates #improvements #rebuild

Eryck Webb and EWG are hard at work this weekend, planning and building a bigger better stream. The mill is undergoing extensive remodeling to head into fall with a bigger more entertaining stream than when we've had most of the summer. The viewers have been heard, the plans locked down and construction has begun! We're hoping to launch live on Monday but will take longer if needed to get this right. Thank you to everyone who is a fan and client of EWG, and the Drawing Request Show. We are working to return the favor for all the faith, time, and support you have given us. Going forward the goal is consistency, fun and of course... lots and lots of drawing!! See you soon!

Twitch: New stream content under construction - coming soon!

August 14, 2019 0 Comments

#giveaway #twitch #stream #underconstruction #comingsoon #newcontent

Eryck Webb Graphic's "Drawing Request Show" is known for being a drawing stream, a humorous entertainment based stream and game show like stream all mixed together. In 2019 a lot has been shaved away to focus more on the drawing request side of the stream as well as the commission level ink and color upgrades. 

On Tuesday, August 13th, 2019, what was supposed to be a bot run, chat based giveaway segment, surprised viewers with a never before seen construction scene. Eryck walked onto the scene in front of a construction barrier and a bunch of cranes working on something in the background hidden from view. Eryck wasn't able to see over the tall barrier, but left the scene "...looking forward to whatever was coming."  

This is a two fold announcement. One, a promise to the viewers and CRew members who come out weekly to enjoy the stream that the stream is in fact on its way out but in a transition period. There are many new ideas for content related to entertainment, games and subscribers in the works, many of which will be implemented over the next couple months. Two,  the game show elements that have been missed most of the summer are coming back. Whether that means wheels or something entirely different  has yet to be revealed. Regardless, a new giveaway segment is coming. Fans and Subscribers can look forward to new surprises and interactivity on the way.

Eryck has trouble keeping a lid on new projects, products and ideas that excite him, so this surprise tease/reveal Tuesday was one way to let the CRew know things are happening behind the scenes but he doesn't want to ruin the surprise yet. Expect more info and more reveals in coming weeks.

Can you guess what new content is coming? Do you have a particular type of content that you would like to see come back or be added for the first time? Let us know in the comments! 

See you weekdays, over at twitch.tv/eryckwebb for all the drawing shenanigans!

#twitch #drawing #request #commission #sketches #sauce #orange #hat

Thanks to all the CRew and the rest of Yew for a great couple stream days this week! I took the week half off just to take a break and get some perspective and get my head on straight, but streamed Tuesday and Thursday! This is the haul from today's drawing requests, including an upgrade I got done yesterday. Thanks for all the support and the cool requests. I am off for the weekend a bit early, as tomorrow me, Kiwi and my sister are off to Steel City Con! I will not be streaming, but will be walking all over the place soaking up the inspiration and the geekdoms. Looking forward to it! I also got a few things in mind for the stream I want to start working on over the weekend. 
See you all next week I'll post the intended schedule for next week by Sunday evening. 
Have a good one, keep rocking, and see you on the Discord and socials!

A warmup to start my day today, trying to capture the feel of a ballpoint pen or what not, but in Inkscape. A chunky environment-exploring mech suit with a little creature piloting it. What will he discover on this baron planetoid? Who knows!

Not streaming today, taking the day to focus on upgrade ink and color work. Half of which is priority items and half of which is backlog items. Have a great day and see you around the socials and discords. I'll be back tomorrow, Thursday 8/8/19 with more Drawing Request stream action.

TWITCH: Solid Last Week of July And First Week of August!!

August 2, 2019 0 Comments

#drawing #twitch #creative #commissions #streamer #art 

Thank you to Yew and the CRew for a super fun week! We tweaked a few rules for the 'Request Show' going into August that are working out well. This week began an emphasis on getting one priority commission grade ink and/ or color upgrade done each stream, and drawing supporter requests around it. I think the adjustment is going smoothly and I look forward to more next week! Kiwi and I are also hard at work on the pre 2019 backlog in the mornings as well as other projects in progress we want to wait to announce properly. 

Thanks to all the supporters, the subs, the donators and the bit cheerers, and those just hanging out having fun watching the stream. Its been a great summer drawing and hanging with you guys. Its hard to believe kids are heading back to school soon and crickets are already chirping like its Fall. But before any of that we have lots more work to do! See you Monday for more! 

Sketchbook: Dogalope Warmup Drawing


#zoo #dog #antelope #jackalope #dogalope #inkscape #wacom

A fun imagination stretching warm up drawing today. Just wanted to sketch out some kind of made up creature from imagination, and came up with the Dogalope. Look for more of these creatures to come down the road! Onto the work that pays, and streaming commission production and requests at 1pmET today!

Twitch: Thanks for a great July

A work in progress inks upgraded request we worked on today. Still needs some fixed areas and final sauce but really digging how it came out so far.

This has been a challenging and really good month for me and the channel. We ended July on a challenging and high note! See you next time as the channel continues to evolve and improve! All art sent, list updated. Goodnight, see you next month ( tomorrow)!


SKETCHBOOK: Grape Ape Warmup


#ape #grape #hannabarbera #cartoon #retro #80s #grapeape #wacom #inkscape #intuospro

A warmup sketch of Grape Ape in Inkscape this morning to start my day. Had the idea to draw this character, after being inspired by a recent 'Fred Flintstone' illustration by the guys over at CreatureBox. I thought I'd take my own stab at drawing a Hanna-Barbera character but with more of a serious portrayal. In the end, it showed why one should do warm ups before starting your professional day as an artist. There was a lot of over night rust and I wasn't quite flowing yet this morning. I don't know why i relied so heavily on the hatching, and also am not 100% happy with the overall head/ face shape. But overall it was fun to try. Onto the work that pays! Will have to do this again with other characters in the future. May try Grape Ape again as well!
Got some backlog work to do this morning and then streaming upgrades and drawing requests live on Twitch this afternoon at 1pm Eastern Time ! Have a good Wednesday!

PERSONAL ART: Skull Boy Warmup 72619


#drawing #inkscape #skull #boy #headphones #urban #chilling #listening #to #music #boots

A warm up this morning playing around with a more minimalistic style. Something I would like to explore more in the future. As far as decision making goes and this being finished or not, this to me is a finished piece... aside from some clean up of a few stray marks here and there. I like the style and decisive lines and shapes of this piece. I basically took my time in doing the clean lines, picking out shapes and contours and using big blocky shapes and not getting too concerned with detail. I also wanted the shading to do its job but be as simple as possible. I think the less is more approach ends up being a bit stronger and more purposeful. What do you think? 

Well, onto the work that pays! But its always fun taking time each morning to draw for myself, stretch the creativity and get warmed up before tackling client work.

Speaking of client work. I'm currently at the bottom of the list with 3 or 4 people on the drawing request list for my Drawing Request Twitch stream I run. But I have an enormous stack of ink and color commission upgrades. Starting next week, I will be emphasizing work on the upgrades, and dialing back the drawing requests. But I will still be streaming 5 days a week or so. Look for the final schedule to go live over the weekend. But for those of you who follow this website, and read these posts, you have a heads up before everyone else. 

This was drawn in about 20 minutes in Inkscape with a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium.

Sketchbook: Drawing Kung Fu - Practicing and Improving Every Day


Click to enlarge

#action #sports #figure #drawing #sketches #stickfigures #characterart #atheletes

As I mentioned on previous posts, Kung Fu is a term that can be applied to a lot of things. Kung Fu means hard work over time to learn a skill. Literally. And I've noticed lately my drawing requests and commissions not flowing or laying down on the paper smoothly. Took me a while, but I realized its because the creative flame is a bit diminished. I haven't been doing the work. You cant just sit down every day and start drawing and hope it comes out good. You have to keep practicing, relearning and drilling every day to be able to draw the way I do. And even I have not been doing that. So I'm going to make time and re-develop the habit. I've been neglecting the number one thing I do in my life and I feel like my professional work has been suffering a bit from it. Clients may not see it, but I see it, and I feel it. And that's not ok. So, in my free time I will be getting back to basics, retraining, relearning and turning up the practice. Here's a good example. I did a bunch of ball point pen drawings on news print last night. But this was sort of a next step. I drew digitally in Inkscape for about 45 minutes with google images set to a search of 'Sports Action' and I just picked out the poses that excited me and I drew those. I was really surprised by some that I found and how 'marvel way' and comic action similar they were. I recommend this for anybody wanting to practice more. Don't worry about details, indicate where the eyes/ ears etc may line up otherwise just nail down those proportions, foreshortening and body forms. Its a great way to practice. Exercises like these really feel good. Get that old drawing fire stoked. Looking forward to seeing how it effects me on Drawing Request Show today. See you all 1pm Eastern ( about 1 hour ) for the Drawing Request madness. Donate a dollar and get a drawing request. It goes up from there. See you at twitch.tv/eryckwebb for the sauce! 

Sketchbook: Staying Loose and Stoking The Creative Fire With Some Newsprint Practice


#drawing #newsprint #sketch #ballpoint #pen #practice #doodles #stickfigures #automaticdrawing

Doing a little homework. I've felt a bit stiff and lacking on flow in my drawings lately. I have been looking through many of my favorite art books and sketchbooks by other artists, and feeding the creative 'bank account' ( jake parker ) by watching inspiring movies like Mad Max Fury Road and animated kid shows. But last night I wanted to hammer out some practice, and nothing helps you loosen up in your drawings like filling 18x24 newsprint pages using ballpoint pen. Its fun thrashing around on such a big paper surface. Recommended! I will definitely be trying to do this more. Maybe even with my brush pen. Or a big fat sharpie sometime. Only problem with sharpies is they bleed through everything lol.

Sketchbook: Eryck Webb Draws Skull Explorer Warmup In Inkscape With Wacom Intuos

July 23, 2019 0 Comments

#skull #suit #robot #mech #space #explorer #twomoons #warmup #sketch #hatching

A fun 'clear your mind and draw' session this morning for warm up before getting started on Upgrade Inks. Playing with shapes and proportions and just not thinking about it seeing where my creativity took me. Ended up with some skull headed ( or masked ) explorer in his exploration pod/ mech thing. Fun stuff. I tried to simulate as if I was drawing in my sketchbook and hatching with a ballpoint pen for shades and textures. I think it worked alright! Onto the work that pays. See you guys 1pm Eastern Time every day this week for Drawing Request Show. Come out, donate for a drawing request, or enjoy the stream and hangout till you win one. I'll draw you any character you want. One character request can be any fan art character, original character, any kind of creature, vehicle, building, complex object. You can even through a word or two at me and I'll come up with something creative and original for you. I've also been known to do stuff like, emotes, logos, mascots and even spend the time allotted creating a scratch sheet of one offs and concepts.

So come out, hang with the crew and check out the draws. Today and every day this week at 1pm Eastern Time only on Twitch

What can the hat, draw for yew?

TWITCH: Retry July Friday - Gun Girl 2009 and 2019

July 19, 2019 0 Comments

Click either the finished colored piece, inks or pencils for a larger version of the 2019 piece!

#twitch #drawing #personalart #10years #throwback #redo #reimagine

I am excited to show off this piece I did on stream, start to finish today. The chat and I spent about an hour looking at old artworks of mine. I purposely avoided commissioned art as I would probably owe the new version to those who have commissioned me. I wanted to use a personal work that reflects where I was artistically in 2009. I picked a few with the help of the chat, and they voted on the piece shown below. It was originally a piece inspired by and themed around the date 9.9.09 as I have occasionally commemorated unique once in a life time dates with art pieces.

Click to view a larger version of this 2009 piece!

This art prompt I participated in is themed around artists redoing an older artwork and remagine/ reworking it with our contemporary skills and experience and workflow. 

In 2009, I was deep into my advertising job and doing mostly graphic design. Looking back, my comic-art style creativity had gone a bit out of practice. I think it was better in college, then during my advertising career took a backseat to mostly being in sketchbooks and such. I took an occasional commission on the side for some reason ( maybe clients that carried over from commissions in college and they still asked if I would do some art for them? ) and did stuff for fun as well. Nothing really pushing my abilities. When I started EWG at the end of 2009 and 2010 I began a journey that would prove to be a pressure cooker and push me to improve a lot over a short period of time. 

10 years later, I am the best I've ever been and this exercise really knocks out any doubt that I might have had about my growth or leveling up artistically. My workflow is crispy, efficient, all digital and I definitely draw with way more confidence and speed then I did in 2009. Having drawn thousands of works a year for almost 10 years now will do that. The original 2009 piece was poorly inked with sharpies or microns and scanned and colored to the best of my limited knowledge in photoshop. I was into graffiti at the time and incorporated that for the background. Now a day, as seen in the new artwork, I love creating textures in black spaces with splotchy brush effects and alternating white and black brush strokes, as well as using dust and smoke and other elements to decorate a character. 

This entire piece was done over the course of a 6 hour stream! Picking a piece to do took an hour or two. The sketch drawing took about half an hour, the inks took about an hour or two and the colors took about two hours. My intention as I continued on this was to really portray my best techniques and skills that I can do at this time in my life and creative career. I feel that I have done that.

I recommend the Retry July exercise to show yourself how far you've come, provide good exhibition of what you are now capable of and set a marker for the future. In 10 years, will I look back at this one and cringe over it like I did the 2009 piece? We'll find out :) 

Thanks to everyone who hung out, encouraged my work on this piece and  those who were there to the end. Thank you for the bits, the subs the donations. Its because of the CRew that I'm even able to take a day where I will potentially pooch any real financial gain and have a fun selfish day of creating my own artwork. Just one of many things you guys enable in my and Kiwi's lives. Have a great night and a great weekend, and see you next week for more Drawing Request action!!!

TWITCH: A couple favorites from today

July 11, 2019 0 Comments

My best wonder woman to date. A fierce, hard as nails amazon warrior that can go toe to toe with superman

I've been enjoying the 'beauty and beast' aspect of some of these woman and alien requests. I use the alien environment and body as a backdrop for the contrasting woman's body, really fun.

Yep, thats 15 minutes of drawing and shading on a city sized factory concept

I love this 'grunge style' its not quite splotchy style or ink sketch style its something all its own. Really fun request with lots of brain-pleasing negative space and silhouette shapes

#drawing #twitch #streaming #rocking

All art sent! See Yew and the CRew tomorrow same drawing channel ( twitch.tv/eryckwebb ) Same drawing time ( 1pm EST/ EDT ) for more! And a 15 minute drawing giveaway i forgot to do today. Heres some favorites from today!! Goodnight!!!

Hope everyone had a safe fourth. It was a celebration that lasted from 10am till 10pm and was a fun day with lots of good beverage n food n good people. Enjoying my downtime /time off. Not thinking about work or stream or my own projects at all but still drawing in my new sketchbook occasionally. I discovered I like using my brush pen with ink and ink wash more than standard brushes. Have a good weekend. There's plenty of commission streamers who could use your support while I'm away. See the CRew and all of Yew soon.

Here's what we got done today on stream! Thank you for all the great requests and support! We unlocked two giveaways and had a lot of fun! Today we announced the release of the digital edition of Volume 3 next week. As if to mark the occasion everyone has begun getting their books this week! Both international and domestic orders who just ordered Volume 3 have just about got them. Anything two or more books, such as the Drawesome bundle that featured all 3 books in one order, have not arrived yet. I believe its because they are larger boxes and are taking a little longer to get there then the single books in envelopes. So hopefully by next week everyone will be getting those.

Thank you for everything this week, and the kind words and the encouragement. We got a lot done. For the first time in a long time I'm feeling really confident about the progress on the Upgrades. See you guys Monday as we continue to knock out upgrades and whip out the drawing requests! 

See you then, only on twitch.tv/eryckwebb

Today was a very productive day! I spent the morning taking care of in-house tasks and chipping away at the backlog. As of the 6 people ( with several orders each ) we had left from pre 2019 two are completely done. This afternoon on stream we worked on a slew of priority upgrade requests for recent orders! All were a blast in their own way and I had a lot of fun working on all this variety! We even broke it up with a mid-stream drawing request raffle. 

Also, I've gotten notifications from several people today that the book orders are starting to arrive! Thanks to everyone who pre ordered! The digital edition will go live end of the month and books are still available at their regular price in the ewSHOP!! But those who got the PreOrder, keep a look out! They're getting air dropped from the EWG Jet as we speak!!

Thank you for hanging and everything and see you guys tomorrow 1pm Eastern for a Drawing Request stream, only at on twitch.tv/eryckwebb -- make sure to follow so your notified when I go live!!!

ewSKETCHBOOK: New Spen Brought Drawing On My Tablets Back To Life


Skull Bot n Bird - Autodesk Sketchbook, Samsung Galaxy Book 12 and Note 9 Spen

Space Zombie - Autodesk Sketchbook, Samsung Galaxy Book 12 and Note 9 Spen

Skully Goes To Work - Autodesk Sketchbook, Samsung Galaxy Book 12 and Note 9 Spen

#skull #drawing #autodesksketchbook #samsunggalaxybook12 #spen #note9

So, for months I've not really been using my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition, my first true drawing tablet for my art. Nor have I been using the Samsung Galaxy Book 12, my mobile work horse for unchaining me from my studio desk. Mainly this is because I have misplaced my Wacom Bamboo Smart stylus that I liked to draw with on both devices. I'll find it around the house somewhere eventually. Also the integrated Spen that came with the 10.1 was becoming unusable and showing its age or perhaps wearing out. I even recently played with cleaning its innards and putting a new tip on it and trying to get it working again. Its just made in a way where you cant get into it to replace anything and there's very little you can do once it starts getting unresponsive and "bad" for lack of a better way to describe it. 

So I took a chance after much research on a Galaxy Note 9 ( yep the phone Ninja promoted ) Spen. The cool yellow one with the clicky button on the end. They changed the thickness, probably for easier gripping, but its overall the exact same as any Spen before it. I'd say its an upgrade from the one the 10.1 came with as well. It feels more responsive, but like it has more pressure levels and even has intuitive tilt like any Wacom stylus device.

This pen has been great. It fit snugly into a bic ballpoint pen case, which I like putting my Spens inside for a couple reasons. This extends the length to a more natural size in the palm, it protects the buttons on the pen and finally makes it a more natural round grip for long drawing sessions.

It has gotten me back into drawing on my mobile devices, brought the 10.1 back to life and allowed me to get work done once again on the Galaxy book. I got the Galaxy book so I could get more work done and not necessarily be confined to my studio desk and its time to start paying for itself!

Anyways, I wanted to say, I can not recommend the Wacom technology based Samsung Spen technology enough. They give you a felt, soft plastic and hard plastic tip to choose from. It doesn't need charging ever. And you can even access additional features by clicking the button and bringing up Air Command on basically any samsung device. The Spen allows you to draw fine lines, pressure sensitive lines and even hold the pen sidewayz and sketch like you would with the side of a pencil or charcoal. 

Its brought life back to my mobile drawing, and most importantly, life back to my original ol' reliable 10.1. I'm particularly right now enjoying drawing with a brush in Autodesk sketchbook and then using the ballpoint pen to hatch in shading and texture rendering. There's something satisfying and therapeutic about shading that way and I will continue to play with that approach more. So you'll probably see more of that.

I noticed it really come alive when using Clip Studio Paint on the Galaxy Book, like it was made for it. I imagine any Adobe software that runs on Windows 10 would work great too.

So this is my overall follow up and review of my new Spen used on both an android Samsung 10.1 tablet and a Samsung Windows 10 PC Galaxy book 12 tablet.  Compare a refurbished any one of these, or even that new Tab4 S ( stands for Spen) and I believe its a better overall functionality and other value over any iPad and iPencil. Having said that, it's only how I feel and currently understand based on my internet observations and research. I have not actually used an iPad or iPencil. Though I can't imagine it'd much better.
