New Years eve....

So my daily posts experiment kinda worked....? Not really, but I know how I'm gonna do it now. It's gonna be the daily drawing. Sometimes they'll be pretty complete, other times a quick sketch. That way regular or longer blog posts will have actual titles and the doodle will just be numbered!
Oh, yeah, I 've now a Tumblr of my art work. 
So, have a good new year! My best of posts will be coming soon!

Jonze Color

So, I've been scanning old comics and drawings. I was scanning an old Frankenstein Jonze comic I did. I was gonna leave it black and white, so I could print it up. But then I got to this page, and I couldn't resist. So now, I gotta go back to the other pages and color those. So... fun?
Anyway, yeah, I'm gonna post the comic pages up on my website later on, maybe daily or weekly.
They may look kinda weird, cause I did the pages with the black and white in mind. Oh well, an experiment is always fun.
This is just the colors, you won't see the lines until the pages are posted.
Looking back on the story, it's not the greatest. But, I'm on this thing where I figure, 'why not', and I'm just gonna publish and post. Letting all my flaws out there, and just moving on. Do the work, scars and all, and just focus on getting better.
I have sooooo much unpublished stuff, so there is a lot stuff up coming.

Ryan Cecil Smith's SF Supplementary File #2!
...Get it? Holidays.... Holi-DAZE!?!
Fine, be that way.
Anyway, again, sorry for the lack of posts. I'm still shooting for daily, but things have been coming up in real life, so yeah. (Link post)
More after the jump!

Here are the original thumbnails I was working off of for that model story I'm working on.  I decided to change it cause it was pretty horrible. So, it looks nothing like this now.

Pages in progresso pasta sauce.

Hey hey!
 Yes, I'm still doing daily posts. Yesterday I actually inked about 5 1/2 pages of comics. Good stuff. Finished one about super villains (these guys), and another the fashion one I've been talking about. This image here is about the fashion one... I think page four or so. Hopefully I finish that today, and maybe add some color to an older strip I did. I'm thinking of putting that one up on my website. That thing has been pretty dead too. So yeah, I'm off to dink coffee and get some drawing done, maybe some reading too. See you tomorrow!

Fierce Fashion

YES! More fashion sketches! I rather like this one, but the character was not what I needed for this particular story idea. I need some one more naive looking. She looks like kind of cyber punk Lolita.  If you've noticed, I've been adding color to these things so they don't look so boring. I got the idea from one of my favorite artists, Brandon Graham. You should check out his site, & get his comic collection coming soon, 'King City'. It's twenty bucks for over 400 pages of comic awesomeness!
Ok, I should go, need some sleep, and still have a lot to do.

Model Girl Sketches

Oh, I've been super into fashion lately, and I kinda want to make a comic about it. Here are some ideas for  a main character. I don't think she ended up looking anything like this. I thumbed out the idea, and feel kind of "meh" about it. it's more about runway modeling... maybe it should be more about fashion? We'll see. Consider this day two of daily posts, since I technically missed December first. 

What is this? A blog!

Soooooo, I've been slacking as of late. Well, not really. Been busy with school work. Any who, new month new posts! And daily posts at that! I know, I've said this before, BUT... I'm cuing stuff for your daily torment. So here is the 1st page in my current sketch book.
