Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015...

To my wife, sons, mom & dad, in-laws, assorted other family, friends, bill collectors, random folks, zombies, and whatever dregs are left...

Happy New Year!

Here's hoping 2015 is the year for you...or us...or whatever.

Being the "somewhat" cynical person I can be...I've never been real sure why the flip of a calendar page should hold any real significance. But not to rain on anyone's parade, if you want it to...I hope it does for you.

All the best to you and yours.

Have Fun!

Not really, but I've got my flats (colors) laid down! I'll fancy it up when time allows...which will be soon I hope...but it's already coming along MUCH faster than the last Tiki guy I did.

On with the show...

A little more on Mr. Tiki...

It's like crack. Can't stop once I start hitting it...

Obviously some more line work to go, not a lot...but hands and feet are always a "fun" time for me. Then some color and layout. K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid. Not gonna be over the top, but I gotta be happy with far, so good.

Have Fun!

More Tiki guy...

Had a little window of time. Started inking my Tiki guy. Here's another glowing rave for Manga Studio 5/Clip Studio Paint...So far, the absolute closest thing to "real" inking/drawing I've ever used. (and if you screw up...Command "Z"!!!) Super stoked on this stuff. Ok...enough of that.

Here ya go...

Oh yeah...

The daily post thing?

Over it.

I can't/won't/don't wanna just put up stuff to put up stuff. That's what it felt like, so nope, not happening anymore. I still plan on posting as regularly as creatively possible. The point being I wanna be putting up work, not just doofus rants and space fillers.

So to the throbbing masses awaiting my every'll get quality instead of quantity...theoretically at least.

Have Fun!

Another Tiki guy...

Started doodling around on a new Tiki inspired drawing. This one will be full digital, from sketch to finished product. Hopefully it'll take less than the 2 years the last one took.

I was having such a good time with this I played a little longer...(eyes are bugging me, but I think I know what I wanna do now)

College day...

I took our oldest son to a College day today. Where did the time go? Watching him, and talking with him today, I know he's ready for this and for that my wife and I are proud. We've watched him work hard over the last 11 and a half years. We know he'll continue to do so.

He's not gone yet, and we're not ready for him to be, but the gateway to his next stage of life is approaching soon. We will proudly walk him to that gate, and most certainly be there when we're called upon...but I reckon it's about time to see if the wings work.

I know they'll do just fine.

Have Fun!

Had a little time...did a little doodle. Still working on getting comfortable in Manga Studio 5. Figuring out color. For a relatively inexpensive program, this thing is pretty dang deep in possibilities. Ah well, enough geekery...

On to the doodle...

Yeah, so...

I worked all day, which wasn't bad at all, except nothing happened that was "post worthy". So, in light of that, here's a photo of some local roadkill...
