I know. These are not GREAT doodles. But, I've been more focused on making these guys in 3d than actually rendering them in my sketch book. So there. Mayhaps I shall load the finished versions with the old sketches so you can see the results

I'm not going to lie. I've been scrounging for inspiration. This month has been a crazy one. I've started a new job, potentially getting another one, meaning I'd most likely have to quit my newly acquired one, I'm MOVING. Dear lord, the list of crap going on in my life just goes on. But you're not here to read my complaints. In fact, you're not really here to read my comments at all. You're here to look at whatever images I poop out on a daily basis. I just thought I'd explain my creative constipation. Perhaps tomorrow I'll have something exciting to look at. Maybe not. We shall see.
I won't lie, I've become involved in a book. "American Gods". It's lovely. And I'd much rather be involved with this book than my sketch book presently. Perhaps I need to end this affair.

So, I enjoy video games. One of my favorite games is Metal Gear Solid. You fight against a mechanical dinosaur with freaking rockets and machine gun turrets, using only Snake's terrifying raspy voice, his intense mullet, and a cardboard box. And some guns too.
One of my fondest memories as a young gamer was the fight against Psycho Mantis, where he could 'predict' your every move, until you plugged your controller into the 2nd player port. Mind BLOWN. Though every boss battle in that game was so satisfying. I mean, you fight a tank, a Helicopter, a guy who reads your mind, another guy who carries around a freaking fighter plane gun turret like a super soaker, and REPTAR, with basically a pistol. The story is A+ too.
Anyway, dis is what I got for you.
What was your favorite vidja game growing up? Let's get some interaction up in here.

I don't wanna draw today. Sorry. It's hard to want to draw when you have a laundry list of things to get done for moving, life, and the less important junk that still needs to get done. So I drew a grumpy monster. Those of you who have seen my business cards may recognize him. He's rather sullen.

Another friend requested that I draw her kitteh. Fuzzy cats are hard for me to draw because my characters tend have very defined shapes to their bodies, so it was an interesting challenge. I think I'll have to try again at something super fuzzy and try and nail down a look. Well, I did my very bestest, and here's what I got. Please feel free to comment requests to me, it's not like I don't have another 300 something doodles left!

A friend requested today's daily doodle. It's a pelican. They're hilarious and I love their stupidly large throat pouches, whatever they're called. This one isn't too bright, clearly. Also, there's a little shark week bonus, though with the scan quality it's hard to really appreciate it.

Jellyfish! A special double picture post today because I colored this thing quite quickly. I wanted to play with the gradient tool in Flash because frankly, I recently figured out how to use it. Also I really like jellyfish. My favorites are those little ones in the New England Aquarium that are in a cylindrical tank and they're teeny tiny, and when they hit the glass, they just kind of ricochet around.

I think all this shark week stuff made me want to draw things in the ocean. Except for sharks apparently. I'm sure I'll be drawing some of those later. But I don't want to make any promises, because I sure do hate to disappoint anyone. Anyway, sea horses are really cool. They have stubby little fins and cool spines all the way down their back.

I have a fancy book about animals. It's a really nice coffee table book because it has lots of beautiful images of all sorts of animals and what nots. So I opened it and went to the sea life section, and saw cuttle fish. These are cuttle fish. And they're cuddling. So they're cuddle fish. Get it? Sometimes I'm so clever. I think I'm going to color these guys. Check out my other other blog to see the results.
