Ah, for my next cool-down sketch another Big Love wife. Did I mention how much I love this show? Ha, ha. Margene is another one of my favorites, she has a naiveté that is cute and sometimes funny--but she knows what she wants. Did I mention she's practically a nympho?
All digital, done in Photoshop. It's funny, I'm coloring this one artist right now who is very realistic and I colored this the same way. I kinda missed on the likeness but I think I namely missed because I didn't exaggerate much.

I used to laugh at people who used to say, "keep it" or "keepin' in real". I used to find it a little cliche and maybe even corny until I grew to learn I really do like to keep it real, real as in true. That's why I LOVE most HBO shows. If someone is pissed they cuss, if they have sex it's usually intimate, violence is more real etc. HBO dramas (as well as any cable pay TV) can push the envelope in ways TV dramas cannot. Which brings me to one of my favorite shows; Big Love. It's supposed to start again in January and I'm happy to have it back.
I didn't do much warm-up sketching this morning so I figured I'd do something before bed. This is a quick sketch of Nicki. I found a couple of really cute pics of Chloe Sevigny but I figured to make it Nicki I needed to draw her all pissed off and lookin' like she just got off the compound.
All digital sketch in Photoshop.

I started off with the intent to draw a zombie. It took me so long to get the head looking half way right I really ran out of time to zombiefy it. I'll probably sit on it for now and break out my zombie pimp hand for tomorrow.

I've been working with Keith on my next book and he mentioned Russ Meyer. So, who the hell is Russ Meyer? A google search later... Where the hell have I been? And I call myself a pinup artist!!??
For those like me who didn't know he started making films in the late '50s. To quote Wiki he made movies, "with a trademark blend of odd humor, huge-breasted starlets and All-American sleaze". Now ask yourself, what's not to love about Russ? LOL! It goes deeper than that because he did it before anyone else did. Read up on him, he has an interesting story and product.
This is a caricature of Tura Satana who stared in one of his movies. All digital, done in Photoshop.

I went to get a sandwhich last night at my local deli and what I found was the next Wonder Woman. She looks more or less like like my sketch here. Truthfully she looked like she could be porn star Aletta Ocean's little sister or something. Blue eyes, the dark hair, glasses, she was perfect. Actually Aletta Ocean would be a good Wonder Woman now that I think about it, but then again, the accent probably wouldn't work for the role. On the flip side, I'm sure she'd be up for nude scenes though. ;)

I've noticed a lot of things are not only on sale this holiday season, but a lot of places I shop have been e-mailing coupons and all sorts of discounts. I guess times are still pretty tough and competitive for retailers. As I drove home in my car tonight, I started thinking gentlemen's clubs are probably in the same boat, so...

Last Monday I went to the post office and there was this girl with incredibly nice buns who either needed to pee, was really hyper, or had restless leg syndrome. Nonetheless she just shook her hips and moved her ass around the entire time she was at the window. It was nice because she made an otherwise boring visit not so boring. This pic was just me playing with a watercolor brush, she of course was wearing clothes.

I was too lazy to draw something new tonight so the perfect solution was to color something old. Actually I think I drew this last week but you get the picture. I think I just drew the rats in for the hell of it, they really don't have any kind of storytelling purpose, just fun.
I did it with Prismacolor pencils and colored it in Photoshop.

I just wanted to screw around with color. How these two came about was I was really missing some things on my drawings and I realized my line of action wasn't working. So after a few sketches I came up with these two.

This book is always late so I'm usually hesitant to experiment much. Since I saw they were introducing a new character [Cinder] who fought with fire, I knew most of the action scenes would be full of yellow and oranges from the fire. So at the end (since it's night time no less) of the book I went with all these browns and purples. I was VERY paranoid the editors or my AD would hate it and I'd have to do redo everything. Thank god I didn't have to.
