Painted THM

THM stands for Top Hat Man.

Anyway, Just did a quick render over the original sketch. I might go back and finish him up or see what else i can do with him.

Pre-ID Days

Long before ID I got to work with a few good fellas on a project that didn’t get a chance to take off. We did do a series of comic strips for the initial idea and was about to work on a Flash animated version but then people got full-time jobs, went back to school, or started families. I still keep in touch with these fellas from time to time.

The first character I call, Hoot Sensei, an owl who teaches self-defense using Aikido. The early concepts of Hoot Sensei was a pretty generic old short character that could kick your ass. But that was too generic so after a few more iterations I thought about giving him a Steven Seagal look but still keeping that old wise and humble character.

The second character was a challenge. Puffin’s are hard to draw. After doing many studies and drawing puffins for weeks, I got down to work to create Paco the Puffin who is a, how do you say, pretty flamboyant hair stylist.

Wannabe Tagger

At some point in my life I did try to do graffiti. It is the most hardest thing to do. Here was one of my failed attempts.

Your keys, wallet, cellphone, and sketchbook…

Ok. So I’ve been guilty at times for not bringing a sketchbook with me. Sometimes we forget or we’re just plain lazy. Make it more a habit to carry it with you. You mind is always teeming with ideas and when you’re out there, many things will visually impact you and invoke some sort of idea or inspiration.

Today was one of those days where having a sketchbook came in really handy. I was at Borders meeting with a couple of people when I spotted a young gentleman who have been serving in the Army. He was wearing this really kick ass army coat. I never knew that the Army issued such awesome threads.

A quick thumb and refined thumb. I’m planing on taking it further.
