Batman could totally beat Superman

It's true.

I always liked King Dedede. Why is he the king again? Is it because he's bigger than the other characters?

I've always likde the concept of a "friendly nemesis". I usually find the bad guys more appealing in general. Knuckles the Echinda, Wile E. Coyote, Captain Hook, Hannibal Lector... just to name a few.

Made this drawing in Adobe Illustrator, built it from scratch! It takes a bit more work that way, but it's the best way to get a faithful, nice & clean vector image. To be fair, I built the image overtop of a JPG I grabbed from the net. I think he'd look good on a t-shirt.

Peach Toadstool. Felt like drawing her, but her dress is boring to draw. So, here she is in normal-type clothes. Pretty cutesy, but what are you gonna do?

Inked with brushpen again, and colour in Photoshop.

In other news, "The Dark Knight Strikes Again" was pretty smelly. Although, something kinda cool happens at the end.

From there to here, and here to there

Funny things are everywhere.

Here's some junk:

I did this for my friend Becky. She writes for a magazine called Uppercase in Calgary,
and she asked if I could do an illustration to accompany her article. She's not sure if they'll be able to use it, but we'll find out soon.

I thought this one turned out okay. I was surprised to end up liking the 'boring' neutral colours of the suits, as opposed to more bright, vibrant colours. Also, I like the texture the pencil crayon gave this one, kind of an unfinished appearance. I don't like how the girl with the black hair turned out, her head is kinda wonky.

Here's some grumpy lookin' old dudes. I did these with Captain Brushpen. The guy on the right ended up looking kinda like G-man from Half Life.

Boring looking girl. Her pose is kinda stiff, but whatevs it's just practice. I like the crosshatching on her jacket though. Note the ass-kicking boots.

Not much to say about this one.

Did you know?
