The disgruntled brother of Sabin Braska, his cynical attitude makes him a pleasure to be around..if you’re masochist.

Asgaut the Viking – Page 3

Viking acton comic anime page 03 hero sapped by lighting

The third page in my comic short story. A little looser line then I usually draw. Just realized the the top three frames are not needed. It’s fun to figuring stuff out when approaching each frame. Repeated the same frame but put a different action in each frame. Gives it a movie like feel. Like my lame Onomatopoeia?

Crocodile Portrait

I will be doing portraits of animals for the rest of the week.  Today I painted one of my favorite reptiles, the crocodile. I ignored the smudge tool and solely used the flat round brush. I had so much fun painting this that I lost track of time and have no clue how long I spent on it. Painting from scratch in Photoshop using a wacom tablet.

I remembered Wikimedia commons is a great place for public domain and CC photos. Here is the link to the ref photo I used if your interested.

In other news I found 6 of the 7 ‘Nausicaa of the valley of the Wind’ manga graphic novels at a thrift store for the price of one. Hayao Miyazaki’s films had a major impact on me when I was younger and have watched most of his films. But I never seen his comic work before he became a director. I’m not the biggest manga fan but this is wonderful artwork. It’s all black and white with with a spot of halftone but it looks very complex even though it is simple. Wikipedia article here.

I’ve also have a urge to play ‘Shadow of the Colossus’ for some reason after looking at the comics. I have no clue why.
