Ravenous Peace Keeper

This was the theme for sketch group last week. I couldn't think of a good idea so I decided to make him a 'keeper of pieces'. I had so much fun drawing him, I decided to ink him afterwards. I have become such a digital drone, I almost forgot how fun it is to work with a real pen on... whats that rectangle white stuff... ah yes, paper.



On an unrelated note, check out 3D Dot Game Heroes for the PS3. Its an amazing throw back to classic 8 bit action games like the first Zelda. If your an old school gamer you will love its style and sense of humor and you can make your own 3D sprite...ish characters! Awesome stuff!

Amphibias Cowboy

This was the random topic for sketch group last week. This was a lot of fun to draw because we spent the whole time laughing at the cowboy reference pictures we had to work from. The best one was an Asian guy wearing what looked like a Canadian Mounty hat and some spiked leather arm bands... WTF!? Then we found some crazy pics of monster salamanders. Google 'giant salamander' if you want to see what I'm talking about. Scary and... home how cute at the same time. :)



Frogs have such crazy hands. I tried to imagine what it would look like to see one holding a gun. I was going to draw one of those stick horse pole things but Haga was sitting directly across from me mumbling off the most random absurd comments about 'Edison who invented spac so I ran out of time due to multiple histerical laugh attacks. He is so out of control... in a good way.  =)
