i've been goofing around with a soldering pen.
i burned this into a bit of balsa wood from a hobby store. i wasn't well informed enough at the time to sand the surface before hand. live and learn, i guess. also, it's probably not a good idea to work with such a rough surface.
anyone know what this style of art is called?
which has to be the coolest title for an art style.
what if you got a doctorate in pyrography?
awesome points all around.
this guy below was mostly inked with a brush.
i never really got the hang of a brush. i can see the appeal of them, the variation of line possible without ever switching tools is neat. and the organic lines are good. but the control just isn't there for me. i think i'll stick with my dip pens and tech pens for now.
and last on this block is this guy.
he was going to be my update on friday, better late than never!
he's got a black hole in his chest. i've got his story pretty well concepted, thanks to some script doctoring by my buddy dave. now i just have to knuckle down and write his script up.
and refine his character sketch. he's not all the way there for me yet.

i didn't forget you, honest i didn't.
i've got a picture here to show you. it's scanned and everything.
but the new 'compose' window in blogspot seems to be too snazzy for the computers at work. which have a flash player so old it still plays frogger. ...i still play frogger. never mind.
the point is, i can't show you much right now.
the cunning may point out that i have my header attached, so why not upload my image to photobucket and then post it you say? a well conceived plan. but the same problem exists over on photobucket. flash uploader.
say, how about a story instead?
i had a nightmare the other day.
ron, my fellow inkceller, and i had gone up for a pre-convention meeting prior to s.p.a.c.e. 2011. it was during this meet up that it dawned on me, i had no finished art for this year's convention. so just like last year i had nothing to sell! and instead of only having a table for a day (like last year) we have one for the whole weekend. i did the math in my head and i had about five days to get something done.
then the dream shifted gears to the comic i apparently finished.
it was some kind of a take on dracula, and it was pixelated and embarrassing.
in case you're wondering, ron was well prepared for the con.
how i resent him and his work ethic!
