    Joker’s Return

    Now that I’ve started drawing the Joker, I can’t stop! The top image is from my sketch book and the bottom one is a w.i.p. shot of an idea I’m still tinkering with.

    Scarecrow & Freeze Warm-ups

    Just a couple practice doodles to get familiar with their designs in preparation for the portraits I want to do of Batman’s Rogues Gallery.

    Hellboy Sketchbook

    I take my sketch book with me to work almost everyday in order to draw during my break but I just end up reading. But for some reason or another I felt like drawing Hellboy that day, and I did. 

    The first image we have I drew with out looking up any reference, and I was content with how it came out. I then got home and looked up reference, soaked it up and the image on the bottom was the results. Pretty happy with out that came out. The beginning of a larger Hellboy piece I want to do.

    Then last night I went back to the first Hellboy doodle and went over with a micron. I rather like it, it’s different.

    For the past week I’ve been drawing some of my favorite characters like the Joker and Hellboy. What I find funny about that is I don’t normally make art on characters, games, shows, etc. that I like. I lack the confidence to make art on the things that I admire. Who am I to make art that I might think is on par or even remotely better than the source material. I’m frustrated with myself for being a lazy person, but more so for being an unproductive artist. I don’t make nearly enough art, not by any stretch of the imagination. I’m embarrassed to say it, but I’ve made very little art for over two years now. Lack of creativity has been a factor but I can’t direct all the blame there. I detest my day job, which consumes all my energy, can’t put all the blame there either. I’m to blame. If I really wanted to make art, I would. And I do. I’m happy to say that for the last week I’ve drawn every day, trying to fill up my sketchbook. It feels good to be drawing again. I feel better. No longer do I feel that guilt with each passing day that I didn’t create something. Art is what I love and it’s time I find a job doing it. But first, I need a portfolio. Which means, back to the drawing board.

    My Beautiful

    Long story short, I recently proposed to my girlfriend. Drew this from the photo we took at our celebratory dinner. I’m happy with how my beautiful came out, but me, terrible. Didn’t even want to ink myself. Oh well.

    Clown Prince of Crime Warm-ups

    Before these drawings I had only ever drawn the Joker once, couple doodles based on his design from Batman: The Animated Series years ago. I decided I wanted to draw him again and actually get comfortable drawing him.

    So, the first two Jokers are pretty much based on screen caps I took from B:TAS. By the 4th Joker (all in red), I added a couple little things I liked from his design in Justice League Unlimited.

    I happened to be inking that one at work when a co-worker asked if they could get a sketch like the first one for $20. I agreed. Aaaaaand, I went over board. As you can see by that fully inked Joker portrait. The co-worker ended up paying me more since he was really pleased with the piece.

    And then we have the last Joker portrait. Still, tweaking his design. I feel as though I might have added too much detail now. Oh well, it’s a work in progress.

    I rather liked the sketch early on. Now I just feel as though it’s over drawn.
