Two New Coloured Drawings!

Hey folks,
I've got two new coloured drawings for you. For the first I had to adopt the style of a particular artist and recreate an image based on our life drawing class. So I chose John Kricfalusi (the guy behind The Ren and Stimpy Show).

Click here to see it PROPERLY, incase the links arent working!

The second drawing is a promotional poster for my Mr. Smoooth character. I expect I'll be popping these out for my other characters pretty soon aswell.

I'm relatively new to photoshop colouring (these are my only finished images) so I appreciate any comments or critisisms!

Black Hole- Finally a doll that sucks!

I can't believe it has taken me so long to upload these pictures of my Black Hole doll. He's fully poseable with a metal wire skeleton, and soft outer limbs. His clothes, including his cape, mask and undies can all be removed and attached using the velcro stitching. Awesome, eh? Here's the beautiful girlfriend of mine who made him for me:

Watch my muscular hand grasp his neck gently like a goose!

Whoops, looks like the camera cord ruined that pic!

Cheesy grin galore

What this? A detachable mask! Bargain!

A little too close

Not close enough!

After a long day of posing Black Hole must rest his weary head on my pillow bed

This is a good a time as any to give a bit of back story to my Black Hole character. I created him with a friend at highschool by the name of Mat Lay. I had the original idea and Mat helped develop the character, his powers, a few future plot pieces as well as co-wrote the first episode. After that he left me to my own devices and ended up handing over all responsiblity to me by episode three. I had been drawing the entire thing from the start, but by episode three my style had progressed further into something I am happy with.

Black Hole is a cynical super hero with the brilliant ability to suck things into his vacuum like hands. He can choose to store these items, or simply repel them straight out the other hand. His origins and identity have yet to be examined, further than his failed magic career and best friend Clint. So far he's had four adventures. I am currently working on the mega long fifth episode,'Inward Thinking: A Neccessary Emo/The Adventures of ManMan.'

I'll also take advantage of this situation by announcing a slight name change in order to avoid confusion with Charles Burns Black Hole comic. You shall now know my comic as "The Black Hole."

Drawing Lesson One- Update

See previous post to know what this is all about.

My original lines suffered because I was drawing with a 2B pencil, and I was keen to darken the lines so that they'd show up when scanned. This next scan shows a few smaller drawings, as well as another dog, with mistakes indicated, and those mistakes fixed below using a more natural pencil flow.

I now know that it really is important to keep physically comparing (holding up to, or using the tracing technique) to Blair's original work.

Unfortunetly my scanner tends to blur the image slightly.

John K's Drawing: Lesson One

"You can go to animation school, spend a $100,000 and not learn a damn thing
about the basics of good animation drawing- OR you can buy a Preston Blair book
for $8 and learn it all in a couple months. You pick.If you learn the principles
correctly, you will be able to draw in any style today. You'll be miserable
having to dumb down your abilities- but you will be in demand. --John


The internet offers animation students opportunities that
have never existed before. The one I'm about to tell you about is the chance of
a lifetime. How would you like to learn to draw for animation from one of the
greatest cartoonists of the golden age, and one of the greatest current
cartoonists? Here's your chance...Read this important note from John Kricfalusi before reading any

Here's my drawings for lesson one. I might add some more egg drawings, but I'm especially pleased with my second page of characters.

That's right, Mr. Smoooth learnt all of life's important lessons, like the art of tongue kissing, from his old man. The plot thickens- er-sickens!
