S’More Cyclops


I’m still cranking out some colored versions of my Inktober doodles and I thought my little Skottie Young inspired Cyclops should be next.

Colored in Krita on my Surface Pro 3.

Inktober – Rick Celis

Inktober 2019-29 Rick Celis

As we are getting to the last few days of Inktober, I wanted to pay homage to Rick Celis.  He specializes in capturing the art style of “Batman: The Animated Series” but occassionally will post something in his own style.  This doodle was an attempt to take his style and apply it to the iconic pose from Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight Returns” cover.

Inktober – Mel Milton

Inktober 2019-20 Mel Milton

I’ve been a huge fan of Mel Milton‘s for a really long time, so I thought I would honor his art for Inktober today.  One of the most memorable things he’s done for me was a month or so where he repeatedly drew Wonder Woman, but in different body styles, ethnicities, and varying armor.  So I took that and tried to doodle something, knowing that I’m awful at drawing females.  But that’s what Inktober is all about, so here it is.

Inktober – Chrissie Zullo

Inktober 2019-09 Chrissie Zullo

Today’s Inktober doodle is inspired by Chrissie Zullo.  She has an adorable and infectious style that has been featured on comic covers and collectible toys.

My attempt to emulate falls very short.

batgirl lines

In my continuing efforts to work more on drawing the female form, I thought I would take a stab at Batgirl.  Not happy with it, but it’s not horrible.

Proportions are a little off, pose is wonky, needs more dynamic action…

Original in pencil and brushpen, quickly converted to lines in Inkscape, then some fixes in Krita.  All on my Surface Pro 3.

Wonder Woman

wonder woman

I took our boys to go see the Wonder Woman movie a few weeks back and just this weekend had enough down time (not allocated to making stuff for others) that I could doodle this mighty heroine.  If you’ve followed my work for any amount of time, you may notice that I don’t often draw the female form.  I find it difficult to capture their physiology without reverting to ridiculous comic book proportions, so I normally just avoid it all together.  This is something I need to work on though, so I gave her a shot.

Doodled in Krita on my Surface Pro 3.

I also started a video capture of the inking process, which I tried to hurry through and was defeated continually by her left hand.  Eventually I gave up.  Observe my failures below.

Bats on a Board

I got a request from sam to draw Batman on a skateboard, so that’s what I did.  Hope they like it!  I actually almost like how it looked in grayscale so I uploaded that version too.  Been real busy since last post, should be posting more through the holidays.
