Ink Study

I decided to sharpen my inking techniques and what better way than to study from one of the masters: John Buscema. Probably the quintessential Marvel guy, he's responsible for loads of work in the early marvel days and has worked on all the major characters.. just look him up online and you're bound to find some solid gold! He's well noted for his renditions of Conan, which is maybe why i enjoy his stuff so much, i really dont know..
I used a brush pen called Pentel pocket brush on this piece and it seems to work quite well. It has its own ink cartridge so theres no need to keep dipping. I'm still tempted to give the sable brush a shot though; theres nothing quite like the real thing.
Anyways I'm by no means trying to pass this off as my own - its merely a study and I'd like to give proper credit where its due.

New Post (Finally!)

Well, due to popular requests I've taken it upon myself to set time aside from my busy schedule of unpacking my life out of boxes stored over the last year and a half and post some art! I worked as a character designer on the TV show Edgar and Ellen before making the transition to Skunk Fu.. These were some of my favourites. Big up to Greg Hukaluck and Byron Leboe for their help along the way, 2 soopa talents i worked with at Bardel.

A work in progress...

Conan the barbarian fresh out of a Hyborian Age tattoo parlor!! I was picking away at this one in my spare time after work and inbetween assignments.. Hope to wrap it up soon, finish tightening up the silhouette, and fix the anatomy.. possibly post a step by step after its done! Pencil sketch scanned and colored in photoshop.

The Geometry Bros.

Here's an old piece that i recently refurbished.
It started out as a simple doodle as does everything.. Playing with shapes and geometric symbols. Originally the square on your man's chest was just another innocent triangle.. Thats when the PS fan boy in me took over and i decided to turn it into an 'x' and thus a playstation promo..

Lisbon Dec 06'

I was lucky enough to travel to portugal before Christmas.. What a beautiful Country! Lisbon and Sintra were worth it alone. Great food, friendly people and an impressive history made this a favourite. Here are a few pics...

Aaah yes the pixel art graffitti

Sintra was by far one of the best stops.. A town about 30 mins outside of lisbon full of palaces and castles.. Dominating the hilltop is an 8th centry moorish castle, Castillo de los moros. Amazing.
