Witch MILF painting

I did one story with the Witch MILF a long time back for the old Horror Babes site. I always liked that one and will eventually continue with her in other tales. This morning I painted up a drawing I had in the sketchbook. It's a fast job.  Hope you like it.

Re Post of some favorites

Okay, these are two of MY favorites. I don't know if anyone out there agrees with me, but there you are.

Sasquatch in the first story I did for him with my favorite title of all time. The splash panel is from one of the Full Rock stories I did.

The Full Rock story is just a goddam nice piece of work, if I do say so. I fully used my anatomy chops...I drew this cold with no reference, mind you...and got the figure's volume right. The only kick I have against it is that the boobs are so balloony. I'm trying to avoid that these days since they should look soft and more conical than these melons are.

 I remember spending a fair amount of time on this splash page, and I remember thinking that I couldn't afford to keep doing that since it took too long. I truly hate that I have to take that so much into consideration when I work right now.

Hopefully the website will allow me to take my time on things...time will tell.

Sector 13: A Drift of Sand

This is from January's Sector 13 installment that I titled oh so poetically, A Drift Of Sand.

A recurring theme with me is the encounter with the unknown in lonely places. I grew up in one of those places. So I know what I'm talking about when I say that being alone at night in an isolated spot can be scary as hell. It's really easy to be spooked by your own imagination.

Or... was it just imagination?

Curler MILF

Curlers? HOT!

I don't get it either, but it's a thing.

Black Widow MILF

Her husband died. (She was acquitted!)  Now she's sooo lonely. Can't someone make her feel better? Hmmm. Okay, that could work...

Sector 13 Pandora Box unused

Here are a couple of pages of rough pencils for Sector 13's latest entry, The Pandora Box. These pages show unused frames and as you can see in page one, I had an ending for the story that differed from the one that was finally done. I was going to do these frames in addition to the ones that are in the finished piece, but I just plain ran outta time and had to cut somewhere so I left the horrifying ending as one of those things we'll never know. Not a bad ending but it feels incomplete. I hope to be able to get around these time restrictions on my own site. 

WWDOSB part 5 The part where you hate me.

This is where you folks are gonna start hating me real bad. This is all I did of this story. It stops here. 

Really. It's all I did. It is. That's it. Ain't no more. Fin-ee! See ya! What're ya hangin' round for?  

Included is a consolation page from Meet the Gradys which I am currently working on for my site which should be about to open but who the heck really knows? Gradys will be fun. 

All of the pencil stories from my files should be considered works in progress that will be refined and redone and even...gasp! Choke!...FINISHED! On Slid's website. 

So despair...NOT!

Sector 13 The Pandora Box

Yeah it's another girl and her blob story...

WWDOSB part 4

Ah! I didn't see you there! My attention was distracted for some reason. Might it be that we've gotten to the money shots again? Might it be! 
Looking at this I see I was drawing some really enormous women at that point. What could it mean? Hmmm.

WWDOSB part 3

Okay, this is the one things get interesting...or at least complicated. :-]

Y'see, I liked to go back and re work favorite scenes, so what you're gonna start getting are alternate versions of certain sequences. You'll be going along, and then boop! all of a sudden you're repeating the last couple of pages but with more recent art work, usually done after some years had passed. Eh, hopefully with somewhat improve artwork!

So don't say I didn't warn ya!

page 13

page 13 version 2


Page 14 version 2

page 14 version 3

Page14 version 4 and the rest of the story will pick up from this version

Lots more to cumm!

Scaffolding of the website is up

We're testing the site now. Nothing is on it yet, we're just making sure the buttons do what they're supposed to. Next is credit card stuff and final tweaks, which is still a chunk to do. But the worst of it is over.

It's been a real task since M9 is creating an entirely new site that will contain myself and other artists as well.In the future this process will only take a short amount of time to finish up. I'm the guinea pig, the first one there, so all the mistakes will be made and fixed on my turn round. Shakedown cruise, in other words.

Hopefully this will resolve itself quickly and then I'll be scattering my banners hither and yon and will be settling into the routine of cranking out stuff for my own site.

More updates to come!

Whatever Happened To The Hotty Boxers?

Firstly, I may not be able to get to my scanner today to give you the next batch on WWDOSB. Believe me I'd rather be spending time on my blog than what I'm doing today. I only have a sec. 

Here's from a picture story I'm putting words to for Catfight.The title on this one just kind of cracked me up. I've been having fun with the chapter titles on this picture story. Thought you might like to see it. 

Look for it on CFC in the spring!

What We Did On Summer Break Part 1

Okay, so I figured you all might like to see one of my old stories that I worked on  in dribs and drabs over the years. It's long and sadly unfinished, but I promise a reworked version of this will eventually appear on my site. And more importantly, it's gonna have an ending, by Gar!

So here it is, started in what looks like the late eighties (Buns O' Steel being something you could buy on TV only back then) and finishes up fairly recently. You get to see all the erasures, paper scarring from overworking on a face here and there, and worst of all, my lettering. I lettered these things never dreaming that someday I might actually show them to anyone! So if you can read it all, you win the rubber banana!

It's long at least for me. This is the first batch. More to come in the next day or two...

Oh yeah. Everyone in this imaginary story has lived in this imaginary world for at least eighteen imaginary years. No imaginary underage minors anywhere!
Imagine that...

Checking Stats FYI

I check my visitors on Statcounter pretty much every day mostly to see how many visitors I've had, how many are returning visitors, which post is getting hit the most, etc. I especially pay attention to returning visitors, since you returners are my troops!

 I only  get info about the city and cable company a given visitor is coming from, nothing else. I have no idea who you folks are or anything.

 I only know that SOMEONE IN BROOKLYN LOVES MY STUFF! WHOA! Keep it up, man! You're number one as far as I can tell!

This is based on cookies. If you don't want me to know, delete em, it's OK. Privacy rules here!

Big Boob Trailer Park Slapdown 2

Sorry about the absence. I was under the weather a few days. A great way to spend the holidays! I ignored pretty much everything. I'm pretty sure I just needed a rest, and sometimes my body gets sick so I'll stop and relax. The trick now is to plan to rest so I don't have work disrupted. Wish me luck.

I did this story pretty fast but didn't stint on backgrounds or the look of things. This means my workflow is getting to be more efficient and I am able to do more storytelling in the time allotted. I do the amount of work I can do in the time I have to do it. The amount of work I can do is going up. This story I managed to do with more panels per page and I had backgrounds in the frame more often. This makes me much more happy with the finished product.

If you are an artist interested in acquiring a workflow for digital comic art I can recommend the book "The DC Comics Guide to Digitally Drawing Comics" by Freddie E. Williams II. Using this book I've made some small adjustments to how I work that didn't seem like much at first, but made a big difference in time use.

Here are some changes I've made over the last few months:

All drawing is now done digitally, no more scanning sketches.Start to finish on the computer. It took me a while to get used to drawing on the computer for some reason, but I'm more comfortable now after about a year of working with it.

I've broken my workflow into more distinct stages that help me keep my mind clear as I work. (It's easy to get lost or fall into fussing over your work if you don't do this) Specifically I do something called "wireframe" which means in one of several  stages, I do all the line work with a digital brush that gives me a uniform ink line. Then I go back over the line work with a larger digital brush to add accents to lines. This gives you variety of line right away and for some reason takes less time than trying to fully ink as I go. This is a big deal.

I've stopped working so extemporaneously and have begun thumbnailing the story out before I start. Again, this suprisingly saves a lot of time. Working things out as you go is not a fast way to work and leaves you with some weird looking frames sometimes.

Anyway this one was more fun to do than many I've done lately. I even worked in a character based on a guy I went to High School with that had frizzy hair and always wore a beercan hat. He had a deadpan, dry sense of humor and would have liked the take on him that I have in the story. Alas, he seems to be living off the grid since I can't find him anywhere online. I hope he's still with us.

So Catfight Fans, enjoy! More to come soon.

Umbrellas and Bugs

Update on Slid's website:

The umbrella site that my website will be a part of has added a level of complexity to the undertaking that has complicated the construction of the site. In other words, we're still working the bugs outta the thing. And then we have to wait on Visa on top of all of that.

Hopefully we'll be somewhere with this soon. I'll keep you all updated.

Spy Catfight

I've been neglecting the catfight folks out there lately. Here's from a story I just finished from Catfight Central. It's titled 'Spy'. Catchy, huh? Yeah right.

A Buncha Dang Mermaids Part 2

And a bonus Tinkerbell.
More of 'em! I was on a mermaid tear a few years back. From my sketchbook.

New Site News

The new site is in it's final stages of preparation. The coding is being tested out this week and then when Visa is done checking whatever they check, it's handed over to me to upload my stuff to. Maybe next week? Anyway, it's happening!

A Buncha Dang Mermaids page 1

Colored pencil from my sketchbooks. More mermaids to come this week.

ISM: Knock Knock

From an upcoming ISM at Monsterbabes! Do you hear a knock at the door? If nobody's there...maybe it's the ISM!

Meet the Gradys!

Here are two pages of roughs from a story I called "Meet the Gradys". The lad of eighteen years so admired by all the ladies for his involuntary reflexes is the best man or ring bearer, I forget which, for his Dad who is marrying the massively endowed lady in the wedding dress. The two girls flanking him are going to be his step sisters.
A parody of some tv show from the seventies which shall go nameless...
Sorry, but this is all I did of this far.
Again, all characters are eighteen or older.

Still waiting on the website...

Visa has thrown a monkey wrench into things which should clear up in a day or two. Nothing major, just a pain and time consuming. Hang on.

Until then, heres a lady finding a visitor in her bedroom, and a couple of nurses! From an old sketchbook.
All characters are 18 years old or older.

Until then, more sketches.
