I got my first official gig this week. It had a quick turnaround time, but I didn't want to let the client down. So last night I worked diligently into the wee hours, and got three 11x15 illustrations completed. It was a bit nerve wracking, but I got through it. Met with the clients this morning, and they like the pieces, which was a relief. So, yeah, I think I'll get other work from them. Exciting.
I think some of that cash will go towards self printing my comic, 'The Comeback Kid'. Gonna have a fancy color cover and everything. Currently, I'm inking the back up story, and I have my sketches for the cover done. I'm just asking people which cover they like best. As soon as I figure out which one is best, It's off to drawing, then printing!
In other news: soon-ish I will be starting a new blog. It's gonna be a foodie/places in San Antonio blog. It'll be in the blogger format, so keep an eye out. I kinda wanted to start a music blog, but I probably don't have enough time to do it all. Also, I'm not sure if I'm all that confident in my ability to write about music. If I do decide to write about music, I'll probably post it here, anyway.
These are a bunch or riders. They are from a Japanese TV show, 'Kamen Rider', kinda like power rangers. I don't know all that much about it, and I'm not sure how I know of it either. It's one of those things that's always been in my head. The same goes for Ultraman. I think that maybe they used to air the show when I was little, and the character got etched into my brain. Anyway, the show is based off the manga by the same name, created by Shotaro Ishinomori. I love the design of the characters, mainly due to the fact that they combine two of my favorite things: bugs & robots. What little kid doesn't wanna see a robotic bug riding a motor cycle? Well, I guess American kids, cause they brought the show over when I was a teenager, as 'Masked Rider', and I don't remember it lasting too long. Anyway, here is an image of, I think, the original TV design. It really is a great design.
Ok, that's all for this instalment. More drawings soon, I promise!
