MODOK Meshugas

I finally made the time to do a little bit made-up projects. Here is my attempt at March MODOK Madness. I'll show the process just to feed my ego:


Inking using Illustrator with a wholly inadequate, ancient, Wacom Bamboo
And what I sent to March MODOK Madness

It's funny because MODOK doesn't have a lap. I have the sinking feeling I am the only one who thinks this is humorous.

On another note, once again, I have been laid off. Looking for work, I become Einstein's definition of insanity.

Still getting work

Took awhile to get an assignment this month. I guess we've both got over the pain of the great Judge Dredd disaster.
I'll add the color finish tomorrow.
I've discovered I can not do this kind of work without a podcast going.
I think desaturated is better.
I also took some of Ben's notes.

Filled shape drawing

Using the free form pen tool in photoshop to draw with. I have an action linked to pressing F1. The Button push causes the path to close, become a selection and  then fill the selection.
You can get the same effect drawing with the magic lasso but the pen tool comes with sensitivity settings that smooth out the lines.

Local author I did an illustration for her (hopefully) continuing story.
Fun story told with great arcs of pay offs and conflict.
Making it look easy.
I gave her a revised version with less artifact issues where she flopped the image.

Little Change of Pace for EnWorld.

All these characters and IPs are owned by Rebellion.
Here's a page where the art is first showing up.  
But revisions will come along next week.
The current level of finish above.
Approval line art
Early rough
And some miscellaneous judge character types.
It was fun. I got better on the Dredd bling as I went.
Never got completely good at it.

Don't Need No Stinkin' Bejes

I was asked to ask Artist Alley participants to do badges. When asked to do so, the deadline was too close and no one bothered to read the specs I gave them. Nonetheless, I did my own badges. I am not sure if the powers that be will accept them all. The theme, if you can't figure it out, is the Jack Kirby Centennial Tribute. Specs by the way were a 4 x 3 inch card with one free space of an inch high to allow to paste on a name label.

Here is the finished T-shirt. Since the last post someone came up with a shield design and I had to make more color breaks in the background.

NDA so these crappy thumbnails are all you get for about a month.
When they publish and tease it, I get to show it off.
Cool project from the EnWorld people.
An RPG book cover.
6 times the usual money.
