Someone commented on how most of the things I post are incomplete scratchy drawings. So I wanted to try finishing a piece for a change and I liked the Midna drawing I did in Storyboard Pro. I took it into Photoshop, cleaned up the line work, and then painted it. 

Yeah… give me a little free time from working on art, and what do I do? Art.

"Cool it, Sanchez, or you’ll get a knuckle supper! Look, Dagless, you’re an excellent doctor, but you’re also a live-wire maverick, who, when he’s not bucking the system is biting the hand that feeds, which in your case is this hand. Now I’m not about to tell the immediate family of the deceased that we’re going to have to burn what remains of his body in order to close the portal to another dimension. I just won’t do it! This hospital’s got a reputation which I intend to keep. I’ve yet to see any demons on the wards, and I’m particularly observant. So go back to your lab and make me a pill that will cure madness, or I’ll kick your ass so hard, you’ll be able to build a pool in the footprint! Understood? -Thornton Reed


Collection of doodles I’ve done in Toon Boom Storyboard Pro in between work. Most of these are for responses in Asks I’ve received, the last three are just doodles I’ve done while watching TV. Sometimes a face is interesting enough to try and draw quickly.

Just a quick beat up Tenzin based on today’s episode. Ever since I was a kid, and I saw Empire Strikes Back I’ve always liked seeing heroes lose a fight from time to time. Something up about getting up and facing overwhelming odds even though it’s not certain you’ll win is impressive to me.

Posted in an “ask” earlier, but the compression on the image hurt my eyes. 

Oni-Ikki from book 1.

Quick Kya doodle I did tonight instead of working on my freelance boards…

Quick Korra doodles done in Toon Boom Pro in response to the Book 3 release.

Hey man, hope all is cool with ya! Hope to see more new things from you :D

It’s kind of sad how I draw everyday… I draw more now than I ever had in my lifetime… but it’s all stuff I can’t show because of NDA.

So here’s a “warm up sketch” of sorts…

I keep seeing this guy on my dashboard and suddenly had the urge to draw him on the margins of my storyboard in Toon Boom.

I haven’t read the comic yet… but I tend to wait for the trade paperbacks of things.

Decided to do another one of those screen redraw things. Obviously this is from Kill la Kill.

Am I the only one who thinks Miko from Transformers Prime and Jolyne Kujo from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures look kinda similar?

What's a good way to draw someone being thrown to the ground dramatically. Like say they were in one of those poses where one hand is in the other and one character has a grip on the characters chest and then they swing around and throw them to the ground. How would you go about doing that?

Is this going to be a single image or a storyboard? Or a comic? Generally, things coming at CAM feel more dramatic. So if its a storyboard or comic… I’d have a set up shot that’s not too dramatic of an angle, where you can clearly see the aggressor grabbing the victim, begin the action of the throw, then cut to a low angle looking up as the victim is thrown toward the camera, landing close to CAM. This also lets you then show the aggressor standing above the victim in a place of power.

Does that help? If not, and you have time to wait longer I can try doodling up some ideas.

A quick little something following up on the last Transformers Prime image. Miko’s reaction to Jack’s choice of swimwear.



Okay, so after I saw this…

…I decided to draw some Transformers Prime beach images. This is the first one I got finished. Instead of Miko with Arcee, pair her up with Jack in a banana hammock. Switched the yellow and pink since Arcee IS Blue and Pink, not yellow.

I have an idea for Bulkhead and Miko… but I haven’t got the composition right.

I haven’t drawn these characters in a long while… this was fun to do. Looked up a lot of Kotteri’s art since I think she draws some of the best Arcee fanart.

Oops… posted this to my other account first. My bad.

Happy New Year.

Thought I’d get one last image in before the year’s over. Also it was a good excuse to draw Korra in a Hakama.
